A labor of love and a family business, Ylang 23 is owned and operated by founders Joanne and Charles Teichman and their daughter Alysa. The couple started their business in 1985 (born Ylang-Ylang) and transitioned to luxury in the late 90s. For almost 40 years, Ylang 23 (“ee-long”) has supported emerging designers and introduced its discerning clients to them through its store in Dallas and at ylang23.com. Ylang 23 has created a space for its clients to feel joyful through connection to designers and their jewelry. Central to that is the owners’ close personal relationship with the designers Ylang 23 represents. The company’s team and owners have always been active in the Dallas community, particularly with organizations that focus on women’s health, human rights, and food insecurity.
