The diamond as big as the Ritz lives. It stands there
on Stemmons Freeway outside of Dallas, an immense,
many-faceted jewel, glittering in the blistering Texas
midday sun. "All that glitters," the saying goes, "is not
gold." Yet, when referring to Zale's new home office,
the whole thing takes on a different meaning. Gold it
looks like and glitter it does, but the real gold and the
real glitter are inside. Not just in the merchandise it
handles either, but in the human resources and resourcefulness
that have caused Zale to grow from a two-man
store in a one-horse town to the largest retailer of
jewelry in the world.
The world's second-largest pear shaped diamond, "Light of
Peace," will be used to raise funds for a meaningful peace effort.
