Our Story

Bobby and Sissi, former high school sweethearts, have been married for 34 years and counting. As Waco natives, they know few strangers and love their Central Texas roots. Though Bob has worked in the jewelry industry since 1985, he first tried his hand at design in high school where he made several ceramic rings, showcasing his creativity. Sissi, who has always been outgoing, hospitable and had a knack for design, joined Bobby at the shop soon after he started the business in 1993. For nearly 25 years, Bob and Sissi Gholson have made it their passion to serve all of Waco and the surrounding area’s jewelry needs.

From designing one of a kind pieces and bringing new life to heirlooms and sentimental items, to re-designing dated pieces of jewelry and providing quality repairs, they aim to bring glory to God and offer nothing but excellence. Bob and Sis reside in the Waco area with their two dobermans and enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren.
