Two Christmas Traditions, Since 1892

Oklahoma’s oldest jeweler, since 1892…

You know the line, and you know the Jingle. But have you ever really thought about everything that has happened between then and now? It’s really quite remarkable when one takes the time to consider it.

Our company has been through two World Wars, twenty-two Presidents, the rise of the automobile, the invention of the television, and much, much more. From our store windows we’ve seen our state grow through an oil boom, survive an oil bust, and withstand an attack on the heart of our downtown core. We’ve been in this business for 124 Years. That means 124 Christmases!

And speaking of Christmas, we stumbled on to a fun Holiday fact this week. Back on December 18th, 1892, the very same year that Benton Clyde Clark opened his doors for the first time, Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky was preparing for the debut of his brand new Christmas ballet. The premier was to happen in the famous Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. 

And while we love the fact that our Anniversary Jingle has become a Christmas tradition here in Oklahoma, we’re quite certain that the “Nutcracker Suite” is in a class all it’s own when it comes to unforgettable Holiday memories.

Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece has become a classic like no other. Year after year in theaters across the globe, this timeless ballet continues to pack in audiences night after night during the Christmas season.

In fact, our very own OKC Civic Center puts on a breathtaking rendition in partnership with the OKC Ballet, the Dance Center of OKC, and the OKC Philharmonic. Performances run through December 20th, so if you hurry you can still grab a seat!

Christmas in 1892 was one for the ages! Here’s to 124 more!
