Messages of sympathy and support for the Eiseman family and the jeweler’s staff have been pouring in following the news that Louise Eiseman has died at the age of 91.
A message from her son Richard D. Eiseman, Jr., current CEO of Eiseman Jewels in Dallas, called his mother “a great mom and a great example on how to live your life”.
His message continues:
“She gave us a road map and mentored us, both personally and in business, in the way that made a difference in what our outlook and priorities should be.
“She, as a person, was so steady and consistent in taking care of others, which was no more evident than the 20 years of love and care she gave Dad during his illness.
“That same love and caring was then mirrored in how she always put family, friends and business above herself.
“Eiseman Jewels would not have developed a focus on philanthropy and relationships without her clear understanding of how important it was to be a contributing member of the community.
“Personal and business often blurred in her world. People recognized that she could do so much good, but she always did it from hard work and never sought attention for her efforts.
“Our family is so lucky to have her legacy; her grandchildren and children are lucky to have her guiding us even if not here in person.”
Louise and her husband Richard “Dick” Eiseman Sr opened their first jewelry business in 1963 as a concession inside a Dallas department store and expanded over the decades to operate 14 leased jewelry stores before the current standalone boutique opened in the NorthPark Center in 1990.
Eiseman Jewels is an institution in Dallas for its “Vault” of the finest jewelry, bridal jewelry and Swiss watches from Rolex, IWC, Breitling, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Tudor and others.
While sharing news of Mrs Eiseman’s passing, the family has said that it will wait until a later date for services because of the covid situation.
