Cliff Hybarger, owner of Chardé Jewelers, was originally trained in Colorado where he learned the Native American technique of silversmithing from local artisans. With over 45 years of experience, Cliff opened his first retail store in 1975 in New Braunfels, Texas. In 1987, he opened Chardé, a Houston jewelry store in the West University area, which quickly became a neighborhood staple.
Having always carried a variety of jewelry, Chardé exhibits over 100 different designers ranging from fashion to fine jewelry. We carry local designers as well as artists from all over the world. Our staff is dedicated to helping you find exactly what you are looking for. And if we don't have it we will make it for you!
Chardé also offers bead restringing, jewelry repair, and custom jewelry design including engagement rings. In collaboration with master craftsmen, we can create any handmade design for you, from start to finish. Whether it is a brand new piece or re-used stones from a family heirloom, it is sure to be a masterpiece!

Most of the jewelry we sell is handmade by designers all over the world. Should something happen to a piece, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 713-668-6350 to let us know the details of your repair. Most items that require work will need to be sent back to us for evaluation. While we can fix some pieces in-house, most of the time we will send them back to the designer for repair. This process can take anywhere from 4-10 weeks depending on the designer. Upon evaluation, we will provide you with a time frame and cost estimate.
