Michael Gallagher Jewelers is a family-owned jewelry business in Delaware with more than 65 years of experience. We are recognized for offering quality jewelry at fair prices and are known for providing exceptional customer service.


Our original store opened in 1948 and grew to several locations, all of which were managed by Andrew F. Gallagher. With Andrew’s retirement in 1989, Andrew’s son Michael and daughter-in-law Kathleen took over the business. However, Andrew’s retirement would be short-lived; he soon returned to the business and to the store he loved and worked there until his passing in 1995.
