Houston, you have style!

What takes to be amongst the 40 top jewelries in the USA? Hard work, creativity and a great sense of style. 

This is I W Marks Jewelers, a family-owned business recognized as the largest and finest jeweler in the greater Houston area for over 35 years.

Their creativity also shows on media, like the ad they ran in the 1980’s featuring the famous wrestler Paul Boesch, whose trademark cauliflower ears reflected his years in the wrestling ring, wearing a pair of diamond earrings.

And speaking of style and creativity...  yes! - Mary Esses is there! 

These are a few of our pieces you can find at their 12,000 ft store. 

It has been a pleasure being part of I.W.Marks story in Houston!

Retail Partner Spotlight: Ikram

Designers often dream of celebrities wearing their jewelry. That dream came true for me when America’s ultimate “celebrity”—a woman admired not only for her fashion sense, but more for her intelligence and sophistication—donned my jewelry. The woman: Michelle Obama. Yes, our FLOTUS wore my jewelry several times. All thanks to one of my favorite retail partners: Ikram.

Ikram is the premiere fashion boutique in Chicago. A beautiful and eclectic luxury fashion boutique, Ikram features a perfect mix of designer ready-to-wear, accessories, and (of course) fine jewelry. The secret to Ikram’s success is simple: its owner and namesake Ikram Goldman.

Goldman is one of Chicago’s most influential women, and a long-time consultant to the Windy City’s most stylish… including Michelle Obama. Last year, Goldman was voted Top 100 Most Powerful Chicagoans by Chicago Magazine. While known as a fashion consultant to Obama and Chicago’s well-heeled women and celebrities, I especially love that she and her team at Ikram treat every customer like a celebrity.

Given Goldman’s exquisite taste and renowned eye for design (and that she hand-picks Ikram’s finely edited and well respected designer inventory) her decision to start carrying my line right after I began my wholesale business really validated my decision and the collection itself. So, thank you my long time partner!
