Some Fine Treasures: Nancy Whelchel Hickman studied at the Gemological Institute of America where she received her Graduated Gemologist designation in 1976. She worked as Senior Gemologist for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service and Senior Jewelry Buyer for a Fortune 500 corporation for nearly 30 years before returning to the Lake Charles Area. With her knowledge of the jewelry industry, it was just natural to open her own small business offering jewelry and gift items. She is grateful to be included with this wonderful group of antique dealers.
Her fine jewelry collection includes pearls, natural colored jade, and colored stones in 14k gold and sterling silver. She designs necklaces, bracelets, and earrings and offers jewelry repair and restringing. Nancy has helped to redesign or update pieces so that customers have a desire to wear their items again.
Also available are vintage and estate fine and fashion jewelry items and gift items. You will find crystal, porcelain, glassware and pottery; along with a pieces of wall art.
