About Barry


As a third-generation diamond and fine jewelry expert, Barry Zale knows this business.

A graduate of the Marine Military Academy, Zale attended the University of Texas in Austin, with further studies at St. Edwards University.

From 1974 to 1986, he worked at Zale Corporation, then the world's largest retail jeweler. Living and working in 24 states and 14 countries, Barry held various positions from Store Manager to Regional Vice President of Store Operations, Diamond Grading/Cutting/Polishing; as well as Vice President of Product Services in the corporation's New York offices.

In 1988 , Barry Zale served as Co-President of Capitol Entertainment, a Blockbuster Video franchisee for the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. During that time, Capitol Entertainment grew from a single store to over 100 stores, becoming the largest domestic franchise in the Blockbuster Video system.

From 1995 to 2003. Barry returned to the jewelry business as owner of Barry Zale Fine Jewelry, a Guild level jewelry and giftware store located in Dallas Texas. (It was also not affiliated with Zale Jewelers).

His civic associations include service on the Board of Reeds Jewelers, a publicly traded corporation; Golden Acres, Jewish Family Service of Dallas; the Marine Military Academy; and Zale Foundations, to name a few.

Zale and his wife, Cindy, reside in Dallas, Texas and are the parents of Ben, Molly, Matthew, Betsy, Jourdan, and Taylor.

What Our Clients Say


I was referred to Barry over 20 years ago, while in Medical school in Dallas. With a very modest budget and lots of student debt, the idea of buying a diamond engagement ring was intimidating to say the least. Barry took his time to help me understand the nuances of value, and quality. I know I got the “biggest bang for my small buck” as when comparing her ring to her other girlfriends, Barry’s was by far the prettiest! We laugh now at how small her engagement ring diamond was, but our oldest daughter wears it proudly around her neck in the necklace Barry designed. And, the 3 carat diamond my wife wears on her finger, I wouldn’t have trusted anyone but Barry to buy from!
