Services & About

This image shows the jewelry that was used to create something new for the customer with pieces that she already had.

CAD images of the jewelry combined into one ring. A designer imagines what many stones of different sizes, shapes, and colors can be blended into one ring.  

In every custom design there is a story behind it.

The final piece being worn by a very happy lady.  Each piece had sentimental value to her, so there is a story that goes with it.

CUSTOM you dream of what your ideal jewelry would look like?  Do you look at a piece of jewelry and think, if only this or that looked different?

Our designer is highly trained and has talent interpreting what can be created while offering ideas.  It is simple.  Talk with our designer Eric. He will create a drawing, a wax, cast and create your piece in 14K, 18K, yellow or white gold or platinum.  Trein's designer is an artist in jewelry making.  We will walk you through the process each step of the way and you will wonder why you waited.

Trein's is the oldest retail business in the community of Dixon, IL.

There have been many changes over the years and this small store has stayed in the fore-front.  And our plans are to be here for many years to come.


OUR STORY since 1883


Trein's is owned and operated by the Brantley family.

Eric and Judy are the son and daughter-in-law of Linda and Gordon Brantley and now own and operate the business.  Gordon was the prime inspiration to keep the business running in the manner it is today.  He taught us all honesty, integrity, and to simply to treat everyone right.  Good lesson for a business to abide by for longevity.

We recognize that change is necessary in all of life, so we are diligent in keeping up with change.  In education we make a strong effort to stay on the leading edge of education and industry advancements.

We believe in continued education and state of the art equipment.  We also believe in travel to advance our knowledge and expand our experience.
