Claude Moore Jeweler is proud to be Mobile’s oldest family owned and operated jewelry store.

We are members of both the American Gem Society and the National Bridal Service.

The original Claude Moore was trained in diamond setting and hand engraving, and after he returned home from World War 1, he decided to set up shop in his home in November 1922.

Within two years, he was able to move his operations out of his home into a small shop in the first national bank building. His wife Mercedes worked on the sales floor, while he worked in the shop.

This began the tradition of husband and wife working side by side that has continued for four generations.

When Claude Sr. passed away in 1945, Mercedes continued to run the store until their son Claude Moore, Jr. finished college at the University of Alabama in 1949.

Over the next 30 years Claude Moore Jeweler continued to grow, and changed locations several times as the city moved westward.

During that time, C. Howard Moore, III joined the business as well, and attained the title of Registered Jeweler with the American Gem Society.

Today, not only are we still Mobile’s premier jeweler, but we also have the finest bridal and gift registry selection in town.

The store is now being run by our fourth generation. Claude Moore, IV and Beth Moore Sumlin run the jewelry and giftware departments, respectively.

We are proud to have served the Mobile Community for over 90 years.
