Meet the Owner, Mark Isham
Mark Isham and his father opened the business in 2003. It all began as a watch and jewelry repair center. Now in our second decade, Mark and his wife, Joy, carry on the legacy of serving Fort Worth with several lines of unique fine and fashion jewelry, watches, and gift items.
In 1994, Mark Isham graduated with a BA in communications from ACU in Abilene, Texas. Not sure of his occupational goals, he worked for one of his brother's western stores in Granbury. November 10th of 1994, he made the front page of the November 11th edition of the Weatherford Democrat newspaper due to a life-threatening auto accident. Mark had always had a passion for working with metals and that led him to a jewelry/metals course in college. He 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 he successfully passed the examination for Jewelers of America and received a Certified Bench Jeweler Technician. Wanting to acquire the gamut of jewelry, he also received his Bachelor of Gemological Science and Horology (watch making) Certificate. Mark's favorite of the three studies was by far Horology.
Before opening RW&J with his father, he 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.
