Discovering Your Jewelry Style

Discovering Your Jewelry Style

Discovering your true jewelry style does not have to be difficult. It is actually a lot of fun! Plus, you may have more than one style to your jewelry. Below we have four main categories most of us fall under. They range from one extreme to the other – the practical soccer mom, to the statement making glamour queen. Do you know which one, or ones you are? Let’s get started!

 

The Glamour Queen

She enjoys the social scene; it gives her a reason to wear those statement pieces. Large diamond hoop earrings, 2+ carat diamond rings, layered diamond bracelets, a simple – yet sparkling diamond necklace, etc. The list can go on for her. Diamonds really are her best friend. When shopping, the more jewelry grabs her attention, the more she needs it!

The Glamour Queen

 

The Casual Woman

With her collection, she has subtle and timeless pieces. She is not worried about making a statement, rather than making sure her jewelry gives the same laid-back vibe she lives by. Matching jewelry sets are her best friend, since they require little thought when pairing with her casual lifestyle. Pearls, soft colored gemstones and simple metal jewelry are what she is pulled towards when shopping.

The Casual Woman 

 

The Soccer Mom

Her daily jewelry routine is probably a lot like her make-up routine – quick, consistent and simple. She loves owning jewelry that can match with just about anything, because it is versatile. Her jewelry collection likely consists of diamond or pearl studs, her wedding bands and a pendant necklace. When she shops for new jewelry, she instantly thinks of all the many ways in which she will get her use out of it – she is practical!

The Soccer Mom 

 

The Trend Setter

From mixing and matching, to wearing the newest pieces we just received – this woman knows how to lead the trends. She is not afraid to wear something unique like art, nor is she afraid to pair different shades of stones. At times she wears large statement pieces, and other times she goes for a subtle yet unique shape. She is such the fashion setter; she can bring back outdated jewelry and make it chic again. No matter what, you can count on her to know and start the latest trends for jewelry.

The Trend Setter

 

Now that you know the four main jewelry categories, which one or ones do you fall under? Are you a Soccer Mom during the week, and a Trend Setter during the weekend? Or are you the Casual Woman who also loves being the Glamour Queen? It’s always fun to be a little of all, too! Don't be afraid to be yourself, that is what makes jewelry shopping and wearing fun!

The 6 Best Gifts for Any Mom

The 6 Best Gifts for Any Mom

Are you frantically running around, trying to think of the best gift idea for the special mom in your life? Are you losing sleep at night thinking what you bought is not as great as your amazing mother/spouse/partner/friend? Whether she is a perfectly practical mom, a super soccer mom or a glamour girl, we have many jewelry items that will surely put a memorable smile on her face. Wearable timeless keepsakes really are the perfect solution, as they can be passed down from one generation to the next.

Being a mom is an ever-growing job. With each passing milestone, moms earn badges right alongside their kids. She deserves a gift continually reminding her of how much she is loved, appreciated and all the joy she brings to this world.

Essentially, there are three categories of jewelry for moms:

  1. Sentimental
  2. Subtle jewelry
  3. Unique jewelry

To help you decide which to choose, think about what kind of jewelry she would appreciate the most. If you think she would wear and enjoy something emphasizing motherhood and family, a more sentimental piece would be best (i.e. birthstone bands). On the other hand, if her jewelry tends to be more on the subtle side, gift her favorite jewelry style (i.e. stud earrings). Then there is always jewelry which symbolizes her unique qualities(i.e. custom designed jewelry).

Below we have listed out six of the best gifts for ANY mom.

    • 1 - Lockets

      Lockets

      – These charms allow you to add pictures and/or engrave them to keep the ones she loves close to her heart. (Great for our mushy sentimental mommas!)



    • 2 - Bracelets

      Lockets

      – These are great for our multitasking mommas who wear many hats! With multiple sets, she can play it simple while out and about during the day, or dress it up for a fancy night out.



    • 3 - Family jewelry

      Lockets

      – Gift her with a birthstone representing each of her children/grandchildren, or even a baby’s footprint! No matter where she goes, or what she is doing, this sentimental mom will always have a reminder of all her family.



    • 4 - Stackable rings

      Lockets

      – Remind her of all the little and big ones who love her. Great for all ages. Plus, they can be worn to BBQ’s or to a night at the opera!



    • 5 - Stud earrings

      Lockets

      – Stud earrings, whether they are diamonds or pearls, are great for our practical moms. They are simple, yet always so elegant and beautiful. A great choice for moms on-the-go.



    • 6 - Custom designed jewelry

      Lockets

      – Just like your "one-of-a-kind” mom, create a piece as unique as her. She will appreciate the time and effort put into creating something as special as her love.


All of the ideas are timeless styles, perfect for passing down as heirlooms in your family.

While moms should be appreciated every day of the year, gifting jewelry is a great opportunity to show how grateful you are for everything she has done.

So, what are you waiting for? Come on by and see us, and we can help you pick out the perfect gift for your amazing momma!

Out with the Old, and in with the New

Out with the Old, and in with the New

Out with the old, and in with the new! A new year, means a new you! Reward yourself, for another great year in the books, with some beautiful shiny new objects…jewelry! Starting the year with new fashions and designs sets you up with the confidence to truly express yourself. Every year, around this time, we set goals and create plans of what we want to accomplish in the New Year. Have you ever noticed that when you have an outfit that looks, feels and fits just right, your confidence goes to a whole new level? You feel that you can accomplish just about anything, nail any interview, stand out in any crowd, etc.! We are here to encourage you to be that confident person.

 

As the years come and go, so do some of the fashions. The jewelry in our jewelry box begins to collect dust. Why not take the jewelry piece(s) and create/design something completely new with it? Or sell the gold to buy something new? Take a look at what is hot for 2018 and what is here to stay. And you decide what your 2018 style will be for you.

 

Qalo Rings –

These silicone rings have taken over! We love these alternative bands for both men and women who live an active lifestyle, whether at work, in the gym, or at home. They are worry and hassle free because of their lightweight design and inexpensive material.

 

Diamond Stud Earrings –

These studs are nothing new to the everyday gal. They offer a timeless elegance for any attire, day or night. Dress them up with a halo of more diamonds, or with a halo of colored gemstones, either way they are versatile pieces that never go out of style.

 

Layered Necklaces –

The layered look offers women a way to add a little dimension to their fashion. By layering three or so dainty necklaces, a soft and laid back look is easily created. Imagine a deep V-neckline shirt or dress with several layers and lengths of necklaces. These shiny things demand attention.

 

Stackable Rings –

The stackable rings are similar to layered necklaces in that they present a mixed and matched look, offering a laid back, confident feel. Stackable rings can be a mix of gemstone or metal colors. Either way this look can add new colors to your overall style or bring colors together in one design.

 

 

Multi Rings –

Do not let this be confused with the stacked look. With this style you are wearing one ring on each finger. Nature-themed and geometric-shaped fashion rings are among the most eye catching styles. The old saying "less is more,” does not apply to you for this look. This style screams confident and unique, all at the same time, because you are not afraid to be yourself.

 

Pearls –

Graceful and tender, pearls are some the most sophisticated jewelry a woman can wear. They have been successfully boosting a lady’s femininity for centuries, as they never go out of style. Pearls do not have to be linked together, they can be surrounded with colorful pastel gemstones, or a halo of diamonds. Pearls are traditional but can be made into modern design.

 

Rose Gold –

Rose gold is here to stay! Rose gold jewelry adds a new color and some personality to your everyday look. It is great by itself, or mixed with white and yellow gold. Whether worn as chunky jewelry or dainty pieces, rose gold gives others the hint of your pink passion.

 

The great part about feeling confident in your own skin, is staying true to your true self and style. Whether the items above are pieces you admire or not, we encourage you to stick with what you love. If you would like to turn some of your old jewelry into new pieces, stop by our store Monday through Saturday, or give us a call to set up an appointment (228-875-4842). We look forward to providing new jewelry, to the new you, for the New Year!

Fall in Love with the Season's Styles

Fall in Love with the Season's Styles

Fall is in full force; the temperature is dropping, the leaves are falling and fires are burning! Sweater weather means a whole new wardrobe for many, even if it is just pulling clothes from another closet.

 

With a new season, comes new colors in our style, so it’s time to enjoy all the fall shades of red, green, yellow, and brown! Now is the perfect time to add some new jewelry pieces to your cool weather attire, since we all know that summer jewelry can be completely different than winter jewelry, due to the cuts and designs of clothing.

 

Below, we have put together four styling tips for this fall/winter season. We hope you enjoy them!

 

#1 – Wear Your Confidence:

There is nothing sexier than a confident woman, right? Walking out the door, letting nothing stand in our way. Is it this new season that encourages us? Is it the new clothes, or clothes that we haven’t worn in a while? Is it that diamond bracelet or earrings our significant other bought us? Or is it the yellow diamond right hand ring we bought ourselves? Whichever it may be, let your confidence shine and be seen…on your hand, your wrist, your ears, and around your neck!

 

#2 – Play with the New Colors:

Each year November brings the beautiful autumn colors. So time to play off those browns, burnt oranges, deep reds, forest greens and mustard yellows. The mixing of metals really compliments the darker shades. Don’t be afraid to wear stacked rings in white gold, yellow gold and rose gold all together. With the cooler weather, majority of the shirts we wear become long sleeves, which means diamond and colored rings are a perfect way to shine throughout the day, and into the evening.

 

#3 – Enjoy Layering:

As the days go on throughout November and into December, the degrees start to drop. And so, we start to layer more with scarves, jackets, gloves, etc. Embrace and enjoy layering with short to long necklaces. Some styles go better with others, depending on the neckline of your blouse. Shorter necklaces go well with open necklines and skin showing at the top of your blouse. While longer necklaces go well with high collared tops.

 

#4 – Turn a Cold Day into One that Sparkles and Shines:

As we begin to bundle up, and wear our favorite turtleneck shirts and wedged boots, we need something to sparkle in the cool air as the sun shines down. Diamond or metal hoop earrings are the perfect element to really make a statement. They are not hidden by extra clothing or hats, which makes them just what we need to sparkle and shine throughout the cooler season.

 

Our must haves for the fall and winter:

- Diamond studs

- Hoop earrings

- Long layered necklaces

- Stacked rings

- Right hand rings

- Bracelets with mixed metals

 

We hope this inspires you to wear your confidence this fall and winter with jewelry that makes you shine and sparkle, no matter if it’s day or night!
