Jan Forrester with Sassy and Duke (in blue)

A veteran of the jewelry industry, Jan has used her fashion design/stylist background to develop a niche specializing in custom designed jewelry, redesign of existing jewelry and new engagement, wedding rings and special occasion jewelry. Her creativity, attention to detail and use of new and reclaimed diamonds, gemstones and pearls has drawn a broad following extending to second and third generations as well as celebrity, corporate and non-profit clients.

Jan’s passion is to take something old and give it new life without sacrificing its sentimental value, be it re-finishing a great aunt’s engagement ring for a new bride, creating new earrings using sapphires and diamonds from both grandmothers or simply converting a favored earring to a treasured ring. She always sees the beauty lurking just beneath the surface.

“I first learned the business in my family’s jewelry store years ago. We designed, produced and repaired all kinds of jewelry there in the store. Those years taught me first hand all that goes into the production of custom designed jewelry.” ~ Jan Forrester

Jan’s life away from her store is full of fun activities with her two sweet Chihuahuas, Duke and Sassy. She is also a Life Member, Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo–Wine Committee.
