WHO WE ARE
Wallace-Burke began as a “Bricks & Morter” business in the spring of 2007. The owners, David Hezlep and Preston Foy, bring to the fine jewelry business over 70 years of experience.
David Burke Hezlep, with 36 years in the fine jewelry and giftware business made a decision to chart his own course and embark on a new journey, capitalizing on his vast experience in merchandising and design. Preston Wallace Foy, former vice president of NW Ayer Advertising (NYC) and National Director of the De Beers Diamond Promotion Service states:
“It is our desire at Wallace-Burke to create an environment that is relaxing and entertaining. When you walk into our store, you are walking into our home; it’s just that simple. From our leather chairs and casual sitting area, you can enjoy your favorite libation and catch up on the latest ball game with our 50″ flat screen TV.”
Shannon Neil is also part of the team at Wallace-Burke. Shannon brings to Wallace-Burke over 25 years of fine jewelry and upscale giftware experience. In addition, Shannon holds certificates of study in Colored Stones, Colored Stone Essentials and diplomas for Pearls and Diamond from the Gemological Institute of America. These credentials will help assure that you can purchase a quality product that is of a standard to be proud of.
Wallace-Burke can truly be your trusted jeweler. Our expertise in design and manufacturing will allow you the opportunity to find real values.
Our giftware is unique as well, we have art glass from England, porcelain from South Africa and silk lamps/light fixtures from Israel and we are just getting started.
Because of our history and experiences over the years we have developed vital relationships worldwide with quality artisans that enable us to produce almost anything one will ever see or imagine. We, as a rule, do not showcase branded designer lines. First, we can produce it ourselves at a better value and second, we probably will exceed the quality.
We at Wallace-Burke are here to serve you. Please look around our site while it is still under construction. We are making changes everyday and will open our e-commerce side this fall. Meanwhile, we can be reached at 205-874-1044.
