Las Vegas The Jewelers home for sale 6

Legendary Las Vegas jewelers Mordechai and Vicki Yerushalmi are selling an 8-bedroom 11-bathroom mansion in the Nevada city for $14.9 million.

The 19,180-square-foot family home was built in 1997 but, according to Mansion Global, an international real estate title, is too large now the Yerushalmi children have flown the nest, although they do work in the family business.

Mr and Mrs Yerushalmi made their fortune after creating The Jewelers Inc in 1976, which has become one of the most dominant retail jewelers in Las Vegas with eight boutiques trading under the names of The Jewelers, Rocks the Jewelers and Venetzia.

Mainly dealing in high ticket diamond jewelry, the business is also offers watches from Audemars Piguet, TAG Heuer, IWC and Breitling.

The couple’s home includes a recessed pool with waterfalls, spa and slide next to an outdoor kitchen with a manicured lawn, rose garden, floral gazebo and a small orchard of exotic fruit trees.

It has a full sized basketball court in its basement along with a fitness room and 13-seat movie theater.

The mansion is a long way from where Mr and Mrs Yerushalmi started when they opened their first tiny jewelry store in Las Vegas in 1976.

Three years later they opened their first boutique within a casino resort at The Dunes Hotel and Casino where they began building their reputation for supplying gems to visiting and resident celebrities.

Over 40 years, the family and its business have become famous for their many celebrity customers including Mike Tyson, Chuck Norris, Britney Spears, and Mike Piazza.
