Hello everyone, thanks for visiting our site again. We have a lot of things going on right now, so let’s dig right in. First of all THANK YOU for voting us the Best of Lenawee in the Daily Telegram’s reader poll! We have been honored with the “Best Jeweler” award many times over the years, but we are always grateful and humbled when we get the news. Again, thank you for your (literal) votes of confidence!
Late last month we attended the semi-annual Independent Jewelers Organization show. These shows provide important educational seminars to keep our skills sharp and make us aware of new developments taking place in the jewelry industry. We also did buying for the upcoming fall season. Yes, we did buying. A lot of buying!
Over the course of the next few weeks the new merchandise will be streaming in. We have so much sterling silver and solid gold fashion jewelry coming that it will be hard finding the room in our showcases to display it all! We especially have a lot of diamond accent and colored stone pendants and earrings, including many matching sets, in sterling silver and in all hues of gold.
If you have looked in our diamond fashion cases in the past couple of years, you probably noticed “dancing”, “shimmering”, “heartthrob”, or similarly named diamond jewelry. These pieces feature diamonds that are constantly in motion and are virtually impossible to keep from flashing. Last year these pieces were only available in solid gold, but now we have many of these designs in sterling silver which brings the price points down a lot; like in the $200 to $300 range for most of the pendants.
We also have some unique colored gemstones to add to our already-large inventory. Ask to see natural alexandrites, precious topaz, Ethiopian opals, and bi-colored “watermelon” tourmalines to see some of the newest acquisitions.
Finally, we have quite a bit of bridal jewelry coming in. Look for new bands, wedding sets, and engagement semi-mounts (rings with the side diamonds already mounted, but with the centers empty to select the stone for). And as for an appropriate center diamond, we are at the early stages of planning another trip to Antwerp, Belgium.
Long-time customers will know that we have gone to Antwerp to select diamonds at the World Diamond Centre nearly every year for the past twenty years. The reason we do this is clear; Antwerp is where we can hand-pick the most beautiful gems from the largest selection of quality diamonds available anywhere in the world. The vast quantity of the finest diamonds and our expertise in making the selections make for true diamond value. If you have any interest in acquiring the diamond of your dreams within the next year, PLEASE come talk to us about our Antwerp diamond broker program. It is simply the best way to buy an important diamond.
That will about do it for this update. We have added pieces to the galleries on our site, so be sure to check out those additions until you can visit and see them in person. Thanks again for returning to our site!
