The founder and owner of Shannon Fine Jewelry, one of the most magnificent jewelry retailers in Houston and this week’s Coast Diamond Featured Retailer, had very humble beginnings. Back in 1978, after serving his country, Army veteran Gary Zoet apprenticed at Corrigan’s Jewelers and realized he loved creating and repairing jewelry. After perfecting his craft he opened his own trade shop, Arbar-K (inspired by the name of his friend’s ranch) and became the go-to jeweler for other stores in Houston that required an expert to work on clients’ fine jewelry pieces. A decade later Gary opened a larger storefront at Wunderlich and FM 1960 and offered his design and repair services as well as other jewelry items, and renamed his company after his daughter, Shannon.
We love a positive story and are honored to be one of the designer engagement ring brands carried at Shannon Fine Jewelry. This independent retailer supports many charities in the Houston community, including the Junior League of North Harris and South Montgomery, Rotary Shares, Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Chad Hendrick Foundation, and the Daughters of the British Empire. Shannon Fine Jewelry recently celebrated 35 years of serving the local area with an anniversary celebration in July 2014.
Today Shannon Fine Jewelry serves customers at two beautiful locations in Houston (Champions) and The Woodlands. Local couples love designer jewelry, and especially appreciate the unique styling of Coast Diamond engagement rings. In recent months, Houston-area clients have said “I do” to the following Coast Diamond ring styles at Shannon Fine Jewelry:
Everything about this ring is exquisite: the brilliant round diamond encrusted in halo of diamonds, framed by strings of dazzling diamonds which wrap around the sides of the finger.
Brides-to-be who love a halo but desire a princess cut diamond will adore this refined halo engagement ring, featuring two rows of delicate diamonds on the shank. (Shown here with matching band.)
