Gillespie Jewelers

Kim Gillespie began metalsmithing at the early age of 15. Growing up, he and his father used to polish opals in their backyard. At 18, Kim started his metalsmithing career by making turquoise Indian jewelry and class rings for several manufacturing companies in his hometown of El Paso. In 1979 he packed up and moved to Dallas, where he worked for several retail jewelry shops until 1983 when he first opened Gillespie Jewelers. Gillespie Jewelers first started as a wholesale shop where we repaired and set stones for numerous retail stores. In 2011 Gillespie Jewelers opened to the public as a retail shop where our primary focus has been on custom jewelry. We also offer watch and jewelry repair services. Today Gillespie Jewelers is still owned and operated by Kim Gillespie and employees.
