About Our Team
Founder of Tate Professional Jewelers, Rachelle Tate, began her jewelry business in 1999. She began by providing her jewelry repair services, custom design work, and stone setting services to a collective group of independent jewelry businesses in Memphis. Growing her business, clientele, and experience over the years, she was able to open her own store independent of other jewelry businesses in 2004. Rachelle continued to service other jewelry stores while serving her own unique clients with her expert jewelry services at her own store. Since she began over 25 years ago, she has steadily built up a growing clientele through her personalized service and exceptional jewelry pieces. Rachelle takes pride in the fact that she is able to tackle almost any request when it comes to repair or custom work.
Joining her team at Tate Professional Jewelers is her son Marques, who is one of Memphis’s only hand engravers. He creates exceptional pieces, from hand-engraved knives and guns to custom belt buckles, pendants, trays, and cups. Rachelle’s daughter, Maria is also involved in the business and offers up her talents through excellent customer service. Truly a family business, Rachelle is grateful for the support of her husband and children as she continues to grow her business and live her passion.
Words from Rachelle
“I hear many people make the statement that they have no artistic talent. I strongly disagree. Everyone has artistic talent in some form or fashion. Just because someone can’t draw, paint, sculpt, or photograph doesn’t mean they aren’t talented in some way. Some people can bake and decorate cakes or even invent new recipes. Some people have a green thumb and can landscape. Other people have the gift for listening to others and helping them through difficult problems. Some are great at organizing and cleaning. There are many avenues when it comes to talent… You just have to think outside the box! Explore what talents you have and develop them further. You will be surprised at the results!”
