In 2012, Deb Shalom opened Leila Jewels, a boutique featuring unique jewelry and gifts, in Potomac, Maryland. Tired of seeing the same items in every department store and chain store at the mall, Deb knew there was a market for something different and unusual. Today, Leila Jewels is online, offering a variety of sophisticated pieces, highlighting American designers and a curated collection of jewelry from Canada, Israel, India and around the world.
