Y shop the Yelton Fall Bridal Sale?

Fall is the perfect engagement season! Leaves falling, cozy colder weather, and fun events to gather around. This season’s engagement ring trend has been going strong for the past few years. We’ve noticed more customers stopping in the store to shop bridal jewelry during the Fall more than any other season. To celebrate this, we are having our annual Fall Bridal Sale! Our Fall Bridal Sale takes place September 20th and 21st, in-store and all day long.


The looks of this year (2019-2020) are simple, classic and organic styles at the forefront. The halo diamond ring is on-trend right now – a single or double halo ring highlights the center diamond with even more diamonds and makes it sparkle even brighter. I would have to say that oval or pear-shaped have been the most popular asked for diamond cuts.

IMG_8030.JPGIn my experience, men have proven to be more traditional. They like to take the easy route, with simple and classic looks. Hey, I don’t blame them …they don’t want to get it wrong! The partner will often choose a simple engagement ring and then the bride will later choose a diamond wedding band that matches her style and personality. There are different options for stackable rings, changing styles and wearing on different fingers. Interesting enough, I have been switching out the style of my diamond wedding band on occasion too!

If you haven’t been in lately, then you haven’t seen that I’ve been rocking a new wedding ring set as of recently, (shown above). I am super grateful to have been gifted with the diamond that Roy wore every day and have decided to implement that into my diamond bridal set.


We have all ring shapes and sizes in-store at Yelton Fine Jewelers in West Chester, Ohio during our Fall Bridal Sale. Stop in, try on a few bridal jewelry pieces and let’s find your favorite jewelry style. It’s the perfect time, we are offering 20% off all mountings OR 5 years interest-free financing. So essentially, you can save now or save later.


– See you soon at the Fall Bridal Sale, The Jeweler’s Wife!

Y the Yeltons had a great Summer!

September is here, can you believe summer flew by so quickly? I have to say, seeing the boys leave for their first day of school is bittersweet. It’s a sigh of relief to have the boys back on schedule and shift my focus to fall season goals at home and at Yelton, but it’s difficult to see them go. Trent is off to seventh grade at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy (CHCA) and Ty is starting his sophomore year at CHCA. How do they change so much in just three short months? Our family is very blessed to have been able to squeeze in some family trips between the boys’ summer activities and working at the store. Here is a little recap of the Yelton’s Summer…

When Mark and I weren’t running around with the kids in West Chester, we found time to skip town. We took an amazing last-minute summer trip to New York City. It was a first for Ty and Trent, who were in complete awe of the city! The fam toured all the NYC staples like Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 Memorial. We even got to squeeze in a Yankees game and they ended up beating the Orioles. The boys could not get enough of watching the game live at Yankee Stadium. Definitely one for the books!

My favorite part of the New York trip was… shoe shopping! Kidding, my top experience was actually The Color Factory, a pop-up art exhibit in Soho that we stumbled upon. Each room was a different color and it was very interactive so the boys were able to learn and have fun at the same time. I’ll admit it though, shoe shopping was a close second (shocker, I know). 


Now we are back and ready to rock out this school year with a 7th and 10th grader! It’s always hard to kiss summer goodbye but luckily we have plenty to look forward to. 

First up, my birthday which is … tomorrow! If you want to help me kick things off swing by the lacrosse field to say HBD. I’ll be celebrating all weekend long cheering on Trent playing with the Premier Lacrosse League. Why not, right?!

From there we’ll shift our focus back to baseball and lacrosse. The boys will be playing well into the Fall which means that Mark and I will be spending a lot of time on the bleachers. The fun kicks off tomorrow in Columbus, where I’ll be repping Trent’s team with my awesome pearl lacrosse necklace (#jewelryforalloccassions). 


What’s on your agenda for the school year? Best of luck getting back into the swing of things. When you do be sure to stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers to tell me all about your amazing summer adventures. Can’t wait to see you all soon! 

Gifts For The Fathers That Expect Nothing

News flash, Father’s Day is on Sunday! My husband {like most} is a pretty simple guy. Just being at home with his boys and grilling food is his idea of a perfect day. While I admittedly like being showered on Mother’s Day, he doesn’t expect anything. Even so I always like to toss in something extra just to show him how much we appreciate him.

If you’re looking for something to surprise your hubby or Dad this Father’s Day, Yelton Fine Jewelers has plenty of options. Here are some of my top picks …


Tissot Watches

Whether that special man in your life is a sports addict, or all business Tissot has something that he’ll love. I’m a big fan of the Chrono collection as it offers a stylish look with sporty features such as water resistance and a sapphire, crystal face that can withstand his busy life.


John Hardy Accessories

For men, when in doubt shop John Hardy. Their pieces are the definition of excellent craftsmanship, something that any man will appreciate. For the executive type choose from their collection of cuff links, or if your guy prefers more of a casual style shop their silver rings.


Movado Watches

If your man deserves a splurge gift this year, a Movado timepiece is the perfect choice. Sleek. Sophisticated. Functional. The 800 collection offers everything he needs and every time he gazes down to check the time? Well, you’ll be on his mind.

If you need more help picking out the perfect gift, come visit me at Yelton Fine Jewelers. Whatever you choose, I know that he’ll love it – along with those amazing steaks that he’s planning to toss on the grill. Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads out there! I hope it’s a great one.

Gifts For Grads

School is coming to an end which means that graduation season is here! Every time I check the mailbox I feel like we have a new graduation announcement waiting for us. I stare at them, happy for the grad, but then I get this little pit in my stomach. I can’t believe that in a few short years I’ll be the one hosting a party and sending my child off to college. Cue the tears now, hand me a tissue!

If you have some grads to celebrate this year, you’re probably in the market for gift ideas. Well, you’ve come to the right place {wink, wink}. While cash is an obvious choice for grads, we always like to include something sentimental that they can carry with them through the next phase. Here are our top picks for both guys and gals …

Diamond Studs

For the ladies, diamond studs are the perfect gift. They’re great for everyday wear and will serve as a memento until they see their own little one in a cap and gown.

John Hardy Collection

From jewelry to cuff links, our John Hardy collection has something for everyone. Inspired by Bali jewelry-making traditions these pieces are truly works of art.


Give that special guy in your life a little sophistication as he transitions to college, or maybe even his first job. No matter his style we have

Congrats to all graduates of 2019! We’d especially like to give a shout out to Audrey Rust, daughter of one of our amazing Yelton staff members. Over the past ten years this lady has become incredibly close to our family and I love her as if she was my very own. In the fall she’ll be headed to University of Cincinnati to study engineering and we couldn’t be more proud <3.

Enjoy this time before the next phase begins! We look forward to seeing you at the store before these parties kick off. No matter who you’re shopping for, we’re here to make sure that the gift is memorable.

A Weekend of Matrimony & Mother’s Day

Ladies {and ahem, gents} Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Good thing because I always need a little extra love to get through these last few weeks of school. #wevegotthis

This year Mother’s Day is going to be extra special for our family because my momma is getting married! On Friday, I’ll be stepping away to celebrate my mom and her new husband, Eddie. On Saturday, after the lovebirds have said “I do”, I’ll be back in the store ready for all of your hubbies and kiddos as they set out to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift.


If you’re not exactly sure what to ask for this year, I’ve got a couple of ideas {wink, wink}. First of all, you have to make your way to Club 925 to check out our latest collection from John Hardy. We’re in love with these pieces and know that you will be too!

One thing that weighs over my head when I buy new clothes, jewelry, and other accessories is the impact on the environment. Well my friends, this collection is handmade in Bali and is designed with the eco-conscious in mind. Their bamboo line plants new bamboo trees with every single purchase. On top of that they offer a work-from-home program for their artisans which allows women to be home with their children while also earning additional income for their families. What could be more perfect for Mother’s Day than a gift that gives back to another Mom?!

Along with all of the amazing bling in our showcases we’ll also have Megan from Daisy Janes Flower Truck here! If you’ve yet to catch this adorable little truck driving around town you’ll definitely want to swing by. Megan will be here starting at 10AM and will stick around until the flowers are gone. Tell your hubby he’ll get a free bouquet with his jewelry purchase! Flowers will also be available separately as well.

Whether you have big plans, or just something relaxing with your main squeeze I hope you all have an amazing Mother’s Day! I’ll be looking for all of your hubbies in the store on Saturday and am prepared to drop some major hints.



Donate Your Wedding Dress For A Cause


Ladies! How many of you have your wedding dress hanging deep in your closet because you have no idea what else to do with it. Giving it away to another bride doesn’t feel right. Nor does properly preserving it for generations to come. So, there it sits …

Well, what if you could donate it to a good cause?

April 23rd through April 27th Yelton Fine Jewelers is partnering with Great Friends Working Cooperatively to collect wedding dresses. Your donations will be transformed into little Angel Gowns for babies that don’t leave the hospital, providing much needed comfort for bereaved families. In appreciation for your support Yelton’s will be providing a $25 gift card to all donors*.

I’ve already brought my dress and am looking for others to join me. Like my friend Jacky {below} who had been holding on to her dress for thirty-five years!


If you haven’t heard of Great Friends Working Cooperatively, be sure to check them out. This amazing organization brings women together to help make positive change in the greater Cincinnati area. The Angel Gown Project is just one example. If you’re looking for volunteer opportunities or charities to get involved with they can help you connect the dots!

So many ways to give back! Start by reaching in the back of your closet and donating your treasured gown. As a mother losing a little one is unfathomable and my hope is that these dresses will provide at least a little bit of light for the families that are struggling.

*Only one per customer. Valid June 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019. Some exclusions apply see store for details.

Join Me At Glad Rags Boutique

Today I want to introduce you to one of the best kept secrets in Lebanon, Ohio. It’s a little place called Glad Rags Boutique and it’s run by my dear friend Lauren. Isn’t she cute?!


Glad Rags isn’t just any clothing store. Sure, the inventory is fabulous and 100% on-trend, but what sets it apart from the rest is the customer service. Lauren has always had a passion for spreading kindness and when you enter her store, you can tell! Every single customer gets the love and attention that they deserve. This is huge as we all know how tough it can be to shop for clothes. Having a little cheerleader by your side definitely helps you to get the right goods and feel confident at the same time {#winwin}.

Lauren started Glad Rags as an Online Pop Up Shop, but the computer didn’t quite give her that 1:1 interaction she was craving. Lucky for all of us she opened a retail location in Lebanon last Fall which is currently open every Wednesday from 11AM to 6PM. She also does special events and we’re happy to report that she’ll be hosting a Yelton Girls Night Out on Thursday, April 4th. Grab your friends and join us at Glad Rags from 6PM to 9PM for food, shopping, and great company. As an added bonus both Yelton Fine Jewelers and Glad Rags will be raffling off a $50 gift card.

Glad Rags

This is a perfect opportunity to snag some fresh clothes for spring. According to Lauren trending looks for 2019 include skinny jeans, bright colors, prints, and flowy tops. Join us to take advantage of her expertise and enjoy a little retail therapy. See you all there!!

Spring Break, Just In Time

pexels-photo-531675March is here! Thank goodness because I’m officially over winter. I’m ready to shed the bulky layers. I’m craving more color, all around. And, I think at this point we all deserve a little more sunshine. Who’s with me?

While I know we still have a while until we’re in full-on barbecue and bike ride mode spring break is giving me hope that summer really is just around the corner. Even if we don’t go anywhere I always enjoy this time to welcome the upcoming change of season, spend some time with family, and start to dust off what winter left behind {literally and metaphorically}.

What’s on your agenda for spring break? Whether you’re going somewhere exciting or hanging out to clean house, tell us what you’re up to. And if you’re hitting the road to somewhere fun you better believe that we want to see pictures!

Happy spring break everyone and goodbye winter blues!
