About Us

Established in 1981, Thomas Markle Jewelers has become North Houston’s most trusted family jeweler and one of Texas' premier jewelry stores. Houston residents and area visitors are provided with a friendly, first-name basis atmosphere and a highly experienced staff of jewelry professionals. Thomas Markle Jewelers has developed a loyal clientele, and we take pride in offering first class service alongside the finest jewelry and watches available at Houston jewelry stores.

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Thomas Markle began his career with the Jewelers’ Guild and quickly received training and certification from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). As his career grew, Tom moved on to work with Robinson Jewelers, who immediately recognized Tom’s talents and sent him to open twelve jewelry stores in Houston, TX. “When I got to Houston in the eighties, I realized this was where I wanted to start my business.”

Armed with a plastic, faux alligator briefcase filled with gold and colored stone jewelry, Tom began Thomas Markle Jewelers in 1981. His flagship store resides in the heart of Kingwood and has expanded three-fold. The Champions store, the second addition to Thomas Markle Jewelers, opened in 2000 and was originally located across from Willowbrook Mall. But in November 2009, the store relocated to Champions Plaza. The final store in the Thomas Markle Jewelers trilogy opened in November 2009 in The Woodlands. The three Houston jewelry stores currently serve North Houston and the surrounding areas.

Tom's three jewelry stores in Houston, TX have earned a reputation for providing unmatched service and top notch quality, while delivering a warm shopping experience at all three jewelry stores. Houston residents have grown to trust Thomas Markle Jewelers as their local, family jeweler, and we hope that you will too.
