Noah Mackie has a penchant for pendants—along with watches, rings, earrings, bracelets, broaches and anything else one might find in a jewelry store.

Mackie knew from a young age that he appreciated beautiful jewelry, he said. His dad used to bring him to jewelry stores as a kid, where he said he loved trying on Michael Kors watches.

What Mackie did not know as a child, however, is that he would eventually open his own store.

Since he was 18, Mackie has been climbing the ladder in the jewelry business; he started out working at Jared’s while in college. Two years ago, Mackie opened his own store, Noah's Fine Watches and Jewelry, in Frisco after working in jewelry stores for four years.

In that time, Mackie has collected stories about being a jewelry store owner that could drop some jaws: Once, he sold a $100,000 ring.


Mackie expressed an interest in the artistry of jewelry, too. His favorite thing in the store, he said, is a ruby necklace that he and his colleague, Leigh McGuill, believe is from Myanmar. He said it is his favorite because he is impressed by the layout and cut of the stones.

“They’re all individually sourced to match up. It’s a really tough thing to do with natural rubies,” he said.

In addition to having an interest in the artistic dimension of jewelry, Mackie said he loves the community ties that selling engagement rings and sentimental jewelry can create.

“Once I got in the industry, I learned that it’s more than just shiny stuff. It’s really exciting to celebrate those special moments,” Mackie said. “I can’t tell you how many weddings I’ve been invited to just by selling the ring.”
