Hi everyone; welcome back to our site. First of all we’d like to thank everyone for another record setting year for 2016. We sincerely thank you for your continued support and the trust you place in us. We know you have options for your jewelry purchases. Your continued support makes us strive to offer the best service and value that we possibly can. Again; thank you very much!
Heading into the spring season, we anticipate last year’s jewelry trends to continue. There is renewed interest in colored gemstones. With two Graduate Gemologists on our staff, we truly have a passion for natural colored gems in a rainbow of colors. We have one of the largest selections of natural colored gemstones, including fancy colored diamonds that you will find anywhere. Talk to us about what interests you, and let us show you what we have to offer!
You’ll notice that we mentioned our selection is “natural” colored gems. Although we have access to and can special order synthetic gemstones (including synthetic diamonds), we stock very few synthetics other than a few “price-point” birthstone pieces. We do not stock large amounts of “created” colored gemstones like emeralds, rubies, opals, etc. It’s not that we are fundamentally against these pieces, but rather we have chosen our niche to be with gems created by Mother Nature. Since we have only one store and are careful and persistent about our buying, we find we can still offer reasonable prices with natural gems. And we feel that these gemstones are likely to hold their value better than synthetics.
Similarly, we only stock precious metal wedding bands; no “contemporary metal” bands. We can special order these bands for our clients, but only stock and prefer to sell precious metal bands. Contemporary metal bands cannot be sized or worked on in any way. The reason certain metals came to be used for jewelry is because they can be worked on: sized, repaired, etc. We strongly feel that after one has worn the same band for many decades, it has special significance. And if it doesn’t fit after a long time, the owner would likely much prefer it to be sized rather than checking to see if the company is still in business and having it replaced. We can do this even with very reasonably priced sterling silver.
Watches, on the other hand, are done in a wide variety of non-precious metals; and they are well suited for this purpose. Last year was a surprisingly strong year for watches even as they have morphed from a necessary functional item to a dress accessory. We still have a great selection of Citizen, Seiko, and Pulsar watches, all discounted from suggested retail pricing every day.
So stop by soon and talk to us about your jewelry needs; we’re here for you!
