We just returned from our biggest buying trip of the year, and we are eager to share all of our newest goodies with you. First looks will be on Facebook, where we offer sneak peeks before things even go into our inventory. (If you aren’t already our friend, now would be an excellent time to “like” us) Next, we will be working on getting things into our online galleries and sharing the details. Look for some stunningly vibrant ruby rings, an exceptional pair of asscher cut diamond and emerald earrings, several dozen wonderful new wedding bands, a graceful turquoise and moonstone necklace, and of course, plenty of new engagement rings, ranging from $600 to $12,000 (because we want to have the perfect ring for you, whatever your budget).
We will have lots up and ready to virtually peruse by Valentines day, but you can be sure to see everything if you come in and visit us soon!
Several people have arrived at the shop recently, confessing that they felt a moment of panic upon seeing a papered over window in the middle of our block. Fear not! We are here for you, (and have absolutely no plans to move) We are just happily witnessing the expansion of our good neighbor Momo’s Bar, into the vacant space next door. Try them sometime for a nice gin and tonic and a jovial trivia night.
We are in the midst of helping a client through a heartbreaking theft, and we want to take this moment to share some thoughts that might help keep others out of her unhappy predicament. The client was woefully underinsured for the loss.
We sometimes get calls from clients after a loss, asking for an appraisal for their insurance companies. Here is an important fact that some people seem unaware of – You have to have appraisals in place with your insurer well BEFORE a loss in order to be covered for high value items! Most homeowner policies have an “umbrella” for your jewelry, often with an upper total limit of $2500. Any coverage beyond that needs a “rider” and an appraisal for high value items.
Please check with your insurance agent for the details of your own policy. If you need insurance appraisals prepared, our GIA certified gemologist appraisers are happy to prepare them for you!
