Why Matthew Trent Is One of Dallas’ Most Treasured Jewelers

Celebrating three decades with the Preston Hollow craftsman, who has created collections for everybody from Neiman Marcus to Stanley Korshak.

Preston Hollow jeweler Matthew Trent has seen it all in his 30 years of business. He’s watched platinum, yellow gold, and rose gold all take turns as most-coveted metal. He’s witnessed several of his former Uptown office spaces transform into bars like Kung Fu Saloon. He’s created numerous collections for Neiman Marcus, Stanley Korshak, and Tiffany & Co. He’s even made a custom bellybutton ring for Britney Spears.

But as all that has changed, Trent’s passion for handcrafting his eponymous collections and custom treasures—inspired by nature, architecture, or even a client’s pet—has remained intact. His dedication runs deep: the Phoenix native knew he wanted to create jewelry since he was 15. “My mom always told me I would have to move out to Dallas,” Trent says. “It was night and day. People in Dallas just really wear jewelry.”
