We’re bringing the summer in with a “bang” this year! June’s going to be so much fun! This year, we’re holding our customer appreciation event in late June to make the most of the following long weekend. We know how busy you get for the 4th of July, so we thought a little pre-party may be just the thing to get everyone in the party mood. 

“Burgers, Brats, Brews & Bargains” will take place on Saturday, June 29th from 9:30am to 3pm. There will be all sorts of BBQ treats FOR FREE and we’ll have a very special guest vendor in for just that day, who will bring a huge variety of hand-picked inventory and some VERY special deals! You’ll also of course be able to browse our own fantastic line-up of jewelry while you’re here. We know you won’t be disappointed! 

So, we’ve got the food and drink covered (Nick’s barbecues are legendary!), we’ll have our own amazing jewelry plus be hosting our special vendor guest …the only thing missing is YOU! So mark June 29th in your calendars now so you don’t miss it! The whole point of this party is to just have a really fun time with our customers. It’s a customer appreciation event, an early Fourth of July celebration, and a midsummer jewelry show all in one!

And let’s not forget about the spotlight gem for June: the pearl. There are different types of pearl, and we have a huge array of pearl jewelry to show you. If you’re a stranger to the pear, now’s as good a time as any to learn a little more about this beautiful gem so you can select that perfect gift for your June babies. 

Let’s talk about freshwater, saltwater and cultured pearls:

Freshwater pearls are usually created in rivers, lakes, and ponds, primarily using freshwater mussels. They are known for their variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, often displaying a rainbow-like color. Freshwater pearls tend to be less expensive than saltwater pearls because they can be produced more easily.

Saltwater pearls are produced by oysters found in oceans, mainly Akoya, South Sea, and Tahitian oysters. These pearls are often rounder and more lustrous, with colors ranging from white to deep black. They are typically more expensive due to the more complicated (and riskier) process.

Natural pearls form without human intervention when an irritant, such as a grain of sand, enters a mollusk (oyster), triggering the production of the pearl in layers over many years. These pearls are rare and highly valued due to their organic formation process. 

Cultured pearls, on the other hand, are created with human assistance by inserting a tissue piece to stimulate pearl production. Cultured pearls can be either freshwater or saltwater and are more commonly available.

So now you know! Saltwater or freshwater, natural or cultivated – they all have their special appeal and this makes the choosing of your perfect pearl fun. We’re here to help you and make sure you get exactly what you need.

Finally, let’s not forget that Father’s Day on Sunday, June 16 this year. We have some incredible gifts for Dad – whether he loves timepieces, tie clips, cufflinks or a range of jewelry made for men, we have you covered!

So, see you in June for fabulous Father’s Day gifts, pretty pearls and a really fun party! We can’t wait!
