Owner Message

  • Murphey the Jeweler - founded on a dream and a prayer in 1850, in our original downtown location, Murphey the Jeweler has been your jeweler during good times and bad ; economic depression and unparalled prosperity. We think our history speaks volumes about our commitment to you -- our customers. The following is engraved on a Texas Historical Marker located in our store. We have been recognized by the Texas Historical Commission since 1985. Back Row Starting Left: Kimberly Benson, Store Manager ; Charles Whitley, II, Jeweler's of America Certified Bench Jeweler/Technician ; Shannon Murphey, Owner ; Lauren Richard, Jeweler's of America Certified Bench Jeweler/Technician ; Glenda Chapman, Sales Associate ; Front Row Melinda Ricketts, Accredited Jewelry Professional ( AJP ) Sales Associate ; Sunny Jones, Sales Associate. A native of North Carolina, Archibald Michael Murphey ( 1836-1886 ) married Elizabeth Findley, in Rusk Texas in 1853. By 1868, they had moved to Tyler. Murphey opened his jewelry business on Ferguson and Broadway in January of that year. Murphey later indicated he had begun as a watchmaker as early as 1851, possibly as a apprentice to his father, who was a native of Ireland. Murphey's sons, Arch ( 1866-1888 ), Orville ( b.1868 ), and Pinkney H. ( 1870-1925 ), succeeded their father as jewelers and continued to operate his business. A younger son, George Reaves ( 1874-1939 ), had taken over the jewelry store by the early years of the 20th century. He moved the business to this site in 1919. ( We moved to a new building in 2000, where we are currently located ). Murphey the Jeweler has operated as a family business throughout its history. The store has always offered selections of American and Swiss watches, clocks, and diamonds. Advertisements from the early years also boasted selections of sterling silver flatware, as well as a full line of pianos and organs. As one of the oldest retail establishments in East Texas, Murphey the Jeweler has played an important role in Tyler's retail history. Today, when you enter our store, you'll find a pleasant and experienced staff to meet all your jewelry needs. Our salespeople have all been trained in diamonds, gemstones and handling jewelry repairs. Two full-time Jewelers of America certified jewelers repair your jewelry and our international award winning designer creates stunning one-of-a-kind pieces right here in our store. Shannon Murphey, a Gemological Institute of America Graduate Gemologist, can be seen in the store daily assisting customers with their fine jewelry purchases. Whether it's a $10.00 broken watch clasp or a $10, 000.00 diamond ring for your sweetheart, Murphey the Jeweler is your jeweler. Now, Shannon Murphey invites you to visit him at his store on South Broadway when you're in the market for new jewelry, accessories, or repairs. The Murphey family always looks forward to making new friends.
