My dad and I opened the business in 2003. We began as a watch and jewelry repair center. Now on our second decade, my wife & I carry on the legacy of serving Fort Worth with several lines of unique fine and fashion jewelry, watches, and gift items.
In 1994, I graduated with a BA in communications from ACU in Abilene, Texas. Not sure of my occupational goals, I worked for one of my brothers western stores in Granbury. November 10th of 1994, I made the front page of the November 11th edition of the Weatherford Democrat newspaper due to a life threatening auto accident. I had always had a passion for working with metals and that lead me to a jewelry/metals course in college. I decided to pursue horology as a career. Researching the best school for jewelry repair in the nation pointed me to The Institute of Jewelry Technology, in Paris Texas. While there I successfully passed the examination for Jewelers of America and received a Certified Bench Jeweler Technician. Wanting to acquire the gamut of jewelry. I also received my Bachelor of Gemological Science and Horology (watch making) Certificate. My favorite of the 3 studies was by far Horology. Before opening RW&J with my father, I worked for several jewelry stores in the metroplex training under the best. We welcome you into our doors. Please allow us to earn your business.
