A Dallas native and third-generation jeweler Markham Teguns has used his extensive experience acquired over 28 years in the business to create the premier shopping experience offered at Markham Fine Jewelers. “This is a huge passion of mine,” he says. “I’ve been doing it since the day I got out of college.” The full service business opened in Southlake Town Square in 2013 and has continued to expand its expertly curated collection that includes 17 different Swiss watch lines, six bridal lines as well as private label and designer jewels. An exclusive Cartier® boutique is positioned within the store, as are custom shop-in-shops to display the collections of TAG Heuer® and Michele. Recently, the store added Omega® timepieces to its offerings. “We not only believe in exceptional service and quality product, but unparalleled customer relations,” Markham says. Custom craftsmanship and bespoke design are just some ways that the Markham team works in close collaboration with clients. Their expert craftsmen and master jewelers offer fi ne watch and jewelry repair and can transform older pieces into new favorites. The company is highly regarded for its bridal business, from both a design standpoint and even the rare skills involved in diamond and precious stone cutting. The store’s “out of the jewelry box” experience also includes estate jewelry purchasing and fi ne watch trading. Markham saw the need for a fi ne jeweler in Southlake and so he expanded to a second location in addition to the company’s store in Frisco. “We’ve really come a long way in a short time,” says Markham. “We’ve exceeded all our expectations.”
