The Man For You

Yeltons_Diamond_BridalOur Diamond & Bridal Event is just over one week away. Naturally, I’ve had love on my mind. Having been married for more than fifteen years, I know first hand how blissful and, ahem, how challenging relationships can be. The ability to experience and work through it all together is what makes a marriage so beautiful, but as woman how can you be certain that you’ve found “the one”?

Well ladies, as someone that sells symbols of love every single day, I’ve noticed a few trends. If you ask The Jeweler’s Wife, here are ten signs that he’s the man for you:

  1. You can remember exactly how you felt the first time you met him.
  2. Whether you’re dressed up, or in sweats, he makes you feel beautiful.
  3. He’ll step our of his comfort zone to explore your interests.
  4. You’re not afraid to ask each other the tough questions.
  5. He’ll put everything aside when he knows that you need him.
  6. You recognize that you will have to grow together and you’re all in.
  7. He treats your friends and family members as if they were his own.
  8. You both make time for each other, as well as yourselves.
  9. He knows how to make you laugh, even if it’s in the middle of a fight.
  10. When you think about the future, you can’t imagine it without him.

If you were nodding your head as you read through that list, congrats! You found him. Keep at it, and if you’re ready for that next step, come see me. Our Diamond & Bridal Event is the perfect opportunity to seal the deal with a bit of sparkle, and save while you’re at it. Hope to see you all there, and I can’t wait to meet him (wink)!

Countdown to Le Vian

Our Le Vian event at Yelton Fine Jewelers is just one week away. Is anyone else as excited as I am?

Before I tell you all of the reasons why I can’t wait to showcase Le Vian bling, I have a confession to make. Once upon a time, when Mark and I were first entertaining the idea of carrying Le Vian in our store I wasn’t very happy. At that time I wasn’t a big fan of colored diamonds and of all the colored diamonds, brown didn’t exactly appeal to me. Little did I know, I was completely missing out!

Luckily Mark saw something in Le Vian and so the brand made it’s way to our shelves. At the point I started doing my research. Like any product that we carry I wanted to get the facts straight so that I could educate our customers on the jewelry they were purchasing. As I learned more about the brand, I started to fall in love. I found myself wearing the pieces around the store, bragging about brown diamonds, and morphing into a full on Le Vian brand advocate.

Here are some of the facts that won me over; maybe they’ll set a spark for you as well:

IMG_0973Chocolate Diamonds: Chocolate diamonds are much more than a brown diamond. While many jewelers will try to tell you otherwise, buyers beware. Chocolate diamonds are some of the rarest diamonds in the world. In fact, these unique diamonds are 10,000 times more rare than your standard colorless diamond.


Timepieces: Along with beautiful gemstones, Le Vian also carries an impressive line of timepieces for both men and women. These exclusive pieces deliver the perfect balance between innovation and fashion. I actually treated myself to one of these at our last event and I can attest, they make you feel like a celebrity.


Peach Morganite: At the 2015 Las Vegas jewelry show, Le Vian introduced Peach Morganite, which they are claiming as “the” gem for 2016. Count me in! These beautiful gemstones deliver a charming look all on their own, but with the addition of Le Vian chocolate diamonds and strawberry gold they take it to a whole new level.

IMG_0976Everyday Pieces: With such a focus on colored diamonds, a lot of people don’t realize that Le Vian also carries more traditional pieces as well. For everyday wear they offer white diamonds set in yellow, vanilla, or strawberry gold. You know, for those that want to play it safe.

Now that you know a little bit more about Le Vian, I bet you’re curious to see these beautiful pieces for yourself. Well luckily our event is just one week away. Here are the details:

And … if you RSVP via a comment on this blog we’ll award you an additional 20% as well as a bonus gift. Basically, it’s your lucky day. Hope to see you there!

Lessons From My Ladies

IMG_0756This past week I had the opportunity to spend some time away with some great friends. There was lots of laughter, many heart-to-heart moments and just a few cocktails (can you blame us). Coming back from it all, I’m feeling refreshed, positive, and also reflective. I definitely wouldn’t be who I am today without such strong women in my life. They’ve been there through the bad, they’ve talked me through the confusing and above all, they always help me grow.
IMG_0757While I appreciate every lesson that I’ve learned from my female friends, these are some that I’ll never forget:
  • Find Balance: While it’s important to work hard (and we do), it’s equally as important to recognize when it’s time to slow down, schedule a massage, or plan a date night. If you ask me, there is no shame in self care. It’s what keeps us from burning out.
  • Let Go: Every moment is an opportunity to refresh. Soak up all that is good in life, and as for the bad … let it go. It’s much easier to move forward when you have less weighing you down.
  • No Distance Too Far: When it comes to true friendship, distance is irrelevant. With cell phones, e-mail and social media, these days, it’s easier than ever to stay connected. And, when you finally meet again, I love when it feels as if no time has passed.
  • Life is For Learning: When you look at my group of friends, no two women are the same. Our backgrounds, our beliefs, and our lifestyles vary. Some may think that would be an obstacle, but to us it’s an opportunity to learn.
  • Be Genuine: When I get together with my ladies, we keep it real. After all there’s nothing more exhausting than trying to be someone that you aren’t.
IMG_0758Cheers ladies, I couldn’t do it without you!
