The family tradition that is Charles S. Nacol Jewelry Co. began in 1896 when Samuel Joseph Nacol, a Lebanese immigrant, opened Nacol Mercantile and Jewelry in Eunice, La. In 1934, the company relocated to the heart of downtown Port Arthur, Texas. It was at this Houston Ave. location that Charles S. Nacol Sr. took over the Nacol Jewelry Co. in 1938 after leaving his successful law practice in Brenham. TX.
In 1958, the company moved to the Adams Building on Port Arthur’s 5th St. and became Charles S. Nacol Jewelry Co.. Looking to expand in 1970, Nacol moved the business to a two-story building on Procter St. and began selling a wide range of merchandise that included everything from camera equipment to guns and appliances.
Making Fine Jewelry Affordable Since 1896
The 1970s saw the business move to Port Arthur’s Jefferson City Shopping Center and a new location in Orange, Texas. Nacol sold the Orange location to a family member and continued his jewelry company in Port Arthur. Charles’ son, Habeeb Nacol, assumed managerial duties in the mid 1970’s upon graduation from the University of Texas.Expanding into nearby Beaumont, Texas Charles S. Nacol Jewelry opened a location in the Colonnade Shopping Center in 1985.
Continuing the Nacol family tradition, Charles S. Nacol Jr. came on board, assuming managerial duties and ownership from Habeeb in 2005. In 2009, Charles S. Nacol Jewelry Co. is proud to relocate once again, this time to an all-new facility on Beaumont’s Dowlen Road. Throughout over a century of service, Charles S. Nacol Jewelry Co. has always been a family endeavor, with many generations of extended family working in the business.
