Join me for a special visit to Richard Eiseman Jewels, where I used to work as a gemologist, in Dallas, Texas. It is a joy to introduce you to some of my favorite people and an exceptional purveyor of fine jewelry and watches. Come get up close to gorgeous pearls, diamonds that capture a ray of moonlight, and emeralds that twinkle with greens beyond belief.
As someone who’s passionate about creating and appreciating beauty, I’ve always been so grateful for the experience to work with such gorgeous gems and amazing professionals in the jewelry industry.
Richard’s father, Richard D. Eiseman, Sr. founded the store with his wife Louise more than fifty years ago. Under Richard Jr.’s expertise, Eiseman Jewels was named the finest independent jewelry story in the nation in 2010 and continues to decorate life’s great moments with sparkle for clients today. You can read about the legacy on their website HERE.
I wanted to dedicate this story to a special mentor, Gerald Goldwyn, who worked with me and died of cancer. His ability to make the story of an antique watch, fine diamond necklace, or cabochon emerald ring come to life is part of the reason I still see stories and beauty when I stare into a microscope or walk by a store window today. Plus his humor and passion for the everyday things in life has always uplifted me and lived on through the challenges we’ve faced in life. He even inspired one of my fiction characters who I hope one day you’ll get to meet on the page, too.
Great thanks to Andre Vorster and Marni Mulvey, and all the staff, who made me so welcome on our visit. They entertained my kids with stories from the good old days, showed them the huge vaults full of gems, and reminded me how the spirit of joy and beauty is still alive in this store that’s so much more than a jewelry box, but really is a place where dreams do come true.
