Houston Jewish Herald-Voice Celebrates Zadok’s Grand Opening April 25, 2021 (0 comments)


Houston, TX—When Zadok Jewelers opened its glittering new 28,000-square foot jewelry and watch store on March 25, it wasn’t only the watch world that took notice. Before construction was complete, WatchPro had done an article about the jeweler’s upcoming plans, but the now-open store (located in a mixed-use development the Zadok family also owns) was featured last week in the Jewish Herald-Voice, the leading paper for the Jewish community of Houston, of which the Zadok family are leading members.

In the JHV article, Jonathan Zadok describes the luxury destination as “Fifth Avenue meets the Meat-Packing District,” referring no doubt to the former meat district in Manhattan that was reborn into one of New York City’s coolest and toniest shopping districts.

The new store is more than double the size of the former store—which itself expanded a half-dozen times since opening in 1976.

The jeweler carries more than 60 luxury jewelry and watch brands, including Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Panerai, A. Lange & Söhne, Omega, and more. Jewelry-wise, the store offers a robust bridal and diamond selection and top international luxury brands like Pomellato, Roberto Coin, Mikimoto, Spinelli Kilcollin, JB Star, Chopard, and more. The jeweler also has a special area for pop-up shops featuring up-and-coming designers of accessories and clothing.

From the paper:

“My wife Helene and I have always dreamed of leaving a legacy to our family, and we could not be more thrilled to see our new mixed-use project finally come to life,” said Dror, family patriarch. 

“Just like the day we first opened in 1976, we want our new store to be an extension of our home, by creating a warm and welcoming environment where we can provide professional and personalized assistance to our customers at a fair price,” he said.

Dror and Helene have three sons in the business: Jonathan, Segev, and Gilad. The family’s roots in jewelry actually stretch back seven generations, when they served as jewelers to the Yemen royal court. In the 1880s, the first members of the Zadok family emigrated to Israel and established their trade there, ultimately opening a store in the world-renowned King David Hotel in Jerusalem, where they sold handcrafted jewelry, Judaica and antiquities. From there, Dror and Helene immigrated to Houston with three suitcases and their first-born son, Jonathan, in tow. Again, they began from scratch to establish their trade, building up the business to what it is today—one of the top jewelry stores in Houston, with the ability to help customers in at least a dozen languages. Read the full JVH story here.
