Established in 1985, YLANG | 23 is owned by Joanne and Charles Teichman who have built a reputation for their commitment to original designers whose passion and creativity shape the trends in the U.S. and in Europe. Featuring Cathy Waterman, Irene Neuwirth, Jennifer Meyer, Todd Reed, Ten Thousand Things and Jamie Joseph, among others, Joanne & Charles have also discovered many designers early in their careers and supported their development and growth.
Central to YLANG | 23's success is the vision of its owners, who were the first in the U.S. to offer hip & high end designer jewelry in the mid-1980's, sell high end designer jewelry on the web in 2000, and create a culture of unmatched customer service, including the early addition in 2004 of free 2 day shipping.
In the past year, YLANG | 23 has launched Ylang23.com on all Mobile devices, and entered a partnership with FiftyOne (Fall 2011) to offer its jewelry in 40 local currencies and ship internationally to over 100 countries.
The Teichmans have two children, Alysa, who resides in New York, and Jake, who is a freshman in college. Their community involvement is deep, with longtime support of Dallas Charities including The Family Place; North Texas Food Bank; Dallas Holocaust Museum; Jewish Family Service; Vogel Alcove and The Stewpot (both to help the Homeless) and St. Philip's School & Community Center.
Why 23? The Teichmans met on the 23rd, were engaged on the 23rd and married on the 23rd. It's the family's lucky number.
