The Ylang 23 Story
Joanne and Charles Teichman

Celebrating 30 Years

Ylang 23 is committed to original jewelry designers whose passion and creativity shape worldwide trends. Central to the company’s vision is the mix of collections it features, including lead designers Jennifer Meyer, Cathy Waterman, Irene Neuwirth, and newer, up and coming designers including Raphaele Canot, Yannis Sergakis, Selim Mouzannar, Jade Trau, RedLine, and Retrouvai. The company operates a single store in Dallas’ University Park neighborhood and an e-commerce flagship.

... of the Next Now

Central to Ylang 23’s success is the forward vision of its owners Joanne and Charles Teichman, the first in the U.S. to offer designer jewelry in the mid-1980s and the first designer jewelry company to go online in 2000. They have created a culture of unmatched customer service and a tight-knit group of employees, some of whom have been with the company more than a decade. In addition, Joanne and Charles have continued to seek new designers, supporting their development and growth, while cultivating long-standing relationships with existing designers over time.

In 2016, Joanne and Charles’ daughter Alysa Teichman joined Ylang 23 as the VP, Business Development after receiving her MBA at NYU’s Stern School of Business. Alysa, who previously worked at Ylang 23 twice, looks forward to growing Ylang 23’s footprint while breathing new life into the company as the next generation.

Why 23?

Owners Joanne and Charles met on March 23rd, were engaged on April 23rd and married on November 23rd (all the same year!). It’s the Teichman family's lucky number!
