Since 1953 Houston Jewelry has been providing the Houston area with high quality, beautiful, designer jewelry. What many of our newer customers might not be aware of is that we used to sell a whole lot more than just jewelry. Before the dawn of the big box stores, Houston Jewelry was one of the original one stop shopping experiences in Houston. You could buy everything from jewelry, photography equipment, home goods and much much more. Every year we would release a new catalog, showcasing all of the new items we were offering. We decided it would be fun to post our archive of all of our old catalogs throughout the years on our website so our newer customers could see how much our store has changed over the years. It is also a great way to see how jewelry trends have changed over the years and what is coming back into style. Jewelry is just like fashion, styles will go out of style only to come back into style again. Each Catalog is available in a downloadable PDF format and is fully searchable. These are a great resource if there is an item you lost or always wanted. You never know there may be an item in there you forgot about and had always wanted it. Maybe you lost a cherished item or it was stolen. It may be in the catalog. You never know what we had from year to year and this is a great source for viewing our past inventories.
While we may be focused on fine quality jewelry now, we do still offer giftware, and sterling silver flatware. We also have great gifts for your groomsmen and bridesmaids. We also offer custom jewelry design. If you see an item in one of our catalogs that we no longer carry just ask. Chances are we still have the mold and could make the item for you. Even if we no longer have the original mold we can still make the item. All we really need is the picture, which thanks to our catalogs are located right here on our site. We love doing custom jewelry design. There is nothing better than seeing the smile on someones face when their vision comes to life.The best part for you as a consumer is you have full control over the design process.
