Since 2016, now Monocle Jewelers has been under ownership by Ryan Morley a Sault native. This historic building was originally constructed and first opened as Jean’s Jewelry, boasting customer black walnut cases and elegant architecture that remains part of its luster and beauty, owned by the same Jean family for 98 years before being purchased by Ryan’s mother. Erika Haapala-Frechette in 1999. She was the sole owner of the then renamed Ryan’s Jewelry for nearly 17 years and continued tradition by providing the Sault with all fine jewelry services and premiere jewelry.
