About Holder's Jewelers

In the true American spirit, Bill Holder Sr. established Holders Jewelers in 1947. Being a victim of polio, Bill Sr. qualified for the GI Bill, and attended Hardin College. In 1945 he enrolled in Horology school and became a watchmaker.

Becoming a small businessman, Bill Sr. bought Perrin Brothers jewelry store in 1947 located in Archer City Texas. There he and his wife Emma lived behind the store in a 12’x18’ room. They raised their family there and Bill Jr. literally grew up working in the store.
