Estate Extravaganza

It’s hard to believe that March is already here! Along with longer days and overall spring vibes, I’m really looking forward to this month, because …

We’re having our first ever Estate Jewelry Event at Yelton Fine Jewelers.

Some of the merchandise has already arrived and I’ve been floored by how amazing they are. Which reminds me that I have a confession. Often times I get so obsessed with chasing the latest designs that I forget to look back. To appreciate the old.

With all of these estate pieces at the store I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to revisit trends from previous years, and even previous decades. I’ve gotten lost imagining the original owner, their story, and what the jewelry meant to them. Plus, the craftsmanship. Stunning.

Of everything that we have received so far, I have to say that these sapphire rings are my favorite. There is something about the vintage designs combined with the colorful gemstones. So rich, so beautiful.



The other pieces that I am gravitating towards are those incorporating naturally colored diamonds. When Trent was born JoAnn and Roy gifted me a beautiful pair of yellow diamonds earrings. I’ve sought them out ever since and these necklaces are definitely fueling that love.



To check out these pieces, and many more, be sure to stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers March 8th through March 10th for our Estate Extravaganza. This event will be a little bit different from those that we’ve held in the past. Here’s the official agenda:

  • March 8th: Our representative will be onsite offering the public an opportunity to sell their estate pieces.
  • March 9th through 10th: Our exclusive estate inventory will be available for browsing and for purchase.
  • March 8th through 10th: Repairs will be offered at a discount of 10%*

For more information and to RSVP visit the event page on I can’t wait to share these amazing estate pieces with all of you!

*Some exclusions apply, not valid on watches or previous repairs. See store for details.



L is for LeVian

February has arrived, and with Valentine’s Day around the corner the “L” word is flying through the air. For most people that word is LOVE, but here at Yelton Fine Jewelers it more commonly refers to one of our favorite designers …


 Join us on Thursday, February 8th for our annual LeVian event. From 10AM to 6PM we’ll be showing off their stunning 2018 collection. The focus this year is all about color, after all …

No one colors your world like LeVian.

As a September baby I’m delighted to announce that LeVian’s gemstone of the year is the Cornflower Ceylon Sapphire. This aligns perfectly considering that their betting the color Denim for fall of 2018. Here’s just a sample of some of their stunning blue pieces, perfect for adding sparkle to any outfit – day or night.


Looking ahead to spring, I love their focus on the color Nude! In the jewelry world, this translates to stunning gemstones such as Neapolitan Opal and Peach Morganite. Need I say more? Opals are not easy to find, but LeVian has done a great job uncovering them. And, for the wanna-be-brides Peach Morganite is becoming a strong contender for engagement rings. Let me know if you need help dropping hints!


Last, but not least, I’m so excited to see that geometric designs are sticking around for 2018. Leveraging chocolate diamonds, LeVian has done a great job at adding a bit more personality to this modern look. Wear them to the office, or hit the town to really show them off.


Join us on Thursday, February 8th to check out these fabulous pieces, and more. The one thing that I love about LeVian {aside from everything} is their focus on creating truly unique looks. Many of these pieces are part of a very limited series, or they could even be one-of-a-kind. Don’t miss your chance to try them on for yourself! With just one glance you’ll see why LeVian is one of the hottest jewelry brands for 2018!


Fancy Shaped Diamonds Are Here To Stay

The New Year has arrived! In terms of fashion there are a few trends that we’re okay leaving in 2017 such as corset belts, lingerie as a top, and {ahem} mini backpacks. That said, in the jewelry world were so happy to see that fancy shaped diamonds will be shining even brighter in 2018.

What makes them so fancy, you ask? Well, when it comes to engagement rings round cut stones dominate the marketplace. So, when we refer to a fancy cut diamond, really, we mean anything that isn’t round. Think princess cut, marquise cut, pear shaped, and more.

I’ve always been a big fan of these uniquely shaped stones. Their character. The beautiful way that they reflect light. The fashion-forward couples that they represent. Well, my friends, I’m happy to report that the celebrities have finally caught on. Prepare to see fancy shaped engagement rings everywhere you turn this coming year. Here are just a few recent love stories as an example …

Meghan Markle Cushion Cut Ring


I have to say; Prince Harry did a pretty fabulous job on Meghan Markel’s new ring. A beautiful cushion cut white diamond rests at the center and his hugged by two round diamonds. The diamond side stones carry a bit of history as they were formally part of Princess Di’s personal jewelry collection. I love that!

Paris Hilton Pear Shaped Ring

While we’ve always known Paris to be a fashionista, when I saw her new engagement ring my jaw literally dropped. Her sparkling new bling showcases a whopping 20 carat pear shaped white diamond at the center. One thing is for sure Chris Zylka won’t be losing her in a crowd.

Kaley Cuoco Pear Shaped Ring

Another stunning, pear shaped engagement ring has made its way to the runway. This one belonging to Kaley Cuoco. Her and Karl Cook have always been so adorable together, and now, thanks to that beautiful rock they look even better.

What’s your favorite fancy shaped diamond? If you haven’t jumped on board with this trend yet, now is the time. Ovals and pears and cushions, oh my! They’re going to be everywhere. And, I am so in.

And, It’s Ladies Night

What are you up to tomorrow night? Grab your gals and head to Yelton Fine Jewelers for Ladies Night. From 4PM to 8PM there will be snacks, cocktails, and a live DJ playing all of of the hits. On top of that one of our favorite fashion designers, Nina Nguyen, will be stopping by to mingle and show off her stunning new collections.

If you aren’t familiar with Nina’s earth-conscious and artfully crafted jewelry, now is the time to fall in love. And, believe me, you will! Incorporating colorful, organic gemstones each piece possesses its own unique style and personality. Here’s just a glimpse …

It’s our little way of encouraging you to get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping {wink}.

Now, the real question … what’s the best way to take advantage of this amazing event? Well, ladies and gents, I’ve got a couple of ideas for you …

Buy Something New …

One thing that I LOVE about Simon G is that he constantly innovating. He keeps me guessing, and for that I am grateful. If you’re a longtime fan of Simon G. {ahem, like me} you’re going to go crazy over some of his latest and greatest works of art. They’re forward thinking. They’re impeccably crafted. They’re everything that fine jewelry should be. Take this beautiful mixed metal set for example, and can we all agree … that ring?!


Reset Your Existing Stones …

Are you looking to upgrade your current engagement ring, or give new life to an heirloom stone that you’ve had tucked away in your jewelry box? Now is the perfect time. From vintage to modern, Simon G offers an array of semi-mounts so that you can find something perfect for you – and your center stone. Here are just a few examples …


Let The Night Sweep You …

If you ask me, the best jewelry purchases are the ones that happen unexpectedly. The kind where you try something on and all of a sudden you’re overtaken by the sparkle, the details, and the craftsmanship. It’s then that you know, it was just meant to be. So, come on in and see if anything calls to you. Even if you walk away empty handed you’ll still have a blast mingling, trying on fabulous bling, and getting to know Simon G. Really there is nothing to lose.


Three words – don’t miss out. To guarantee your appointment be sure to RSVP on See you all next week! Eeeek.

Hoops, Trending This Fall

What’s one of the largest trends that I’m seeing for Fall 2017? Hoop earrings! They’re everywhere. And, at Yelton Fine Jewelers we love them!

Big and small. In silver or gold. With diamonds, or without. Over the last couple of months we’ve been expanding our collection of hoop earrings to ensure that you can keep your look “on-trend”, whether you’re headed to the office, or out on the town with your ladies.



If you’re just starting to introduce hoop earrings into your wardrobe, I recommend starting with something simple. Stick with a 15/20mm size for everyday wear, and when you need something a little more bold, that’s when you reach for the 35/40mm pair. No matter which size you choose, our basic hoops come in either white, rose, or yellow gold. {Retail price: starting at $120}



With the launch of Club 925, we’re so excited to offer trendy looks at affordable sterling silver prices. While we have so many beautiful pieces in stock, when it comes to silver hoops some of my favorites come from Jude Frances. Showcasing ornate designs, and beautiful antique finishes these earrings will add instant personality to any wardrobe. Guaranteed!



If you ask me the only accessory hotter than hoop earrings, are hoop earrings that sparkle. Well ladies, I’m happy to announce that we’ve recently added round and oval shaped hoops complete with glistening white diamonds. Available in white, rose, and yellow gold these beauts come with a secure back that will keep you comfortable – from day to night. {Retail price: starting at $995}

Ready to jump on board with the latest trend? Stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers to see which hoops are right for you. Add them to your collection today, or put them on your holiday wish list. We’ll keep Santa informed!

Fall 2017 Jewelry Trends

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what is “on trend” for Fall 2017. Well ladies and gents, without hesitation, I have an answer for you …

Stacks. Stacks. Stacks.

Layers. Layers. Layers.

When it comes to stackable bracelets, FANA has it going on. The oval shape will add a bit of personality to your current stack, and I’ve found that they go well with everything. My favorite, you ask? Rose gold. Hands down.


Moving on to rings, we have a new stackable collection by Madison L. Mark and I have been eyeing this line for several seasons and we’re happy to announce that it’s finally hitting our shelves. That is assuming we can keep them in stock! Along with delivering a beautiful fashion look, they can also serve as a wedding or anniversary band.


In terms of necklaces I am obsessed with this new layering trend. The thought of showing off multiple pieces at one time is brilliant! If want a combined look this yellow gold infinity necklace is a stunning place to start. The chain is a bit longer and would look great resting alongside your favorite diamond pendant.


When it comes to fall jewelry trends, you heard it here first. It’s all about stacking, and layering. What new looks have you seen popping up so far? Do share!

Introducing Slate and Tell

Yesterday was one of our favorite events of the summer, Moms and Mimosas at Putter’s Sports Grill. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend personally this year, but Gina, Heather, and Megan were there to spread the Yelton love and drink mimosas in my honor. After all, that’s what friends are for, right?!

If you haven’t attended Moms and Mimosas in the past, you should definitely mark you calendar for next year. It’s such a great way to connect with other busy mothers, enjoy delicious grub, and most importantly … let loose a little bit before the back-to-school madness hits.


As a special treat to all of the moms that attended this year, we did a sneak peak of the Slate and Tell line that will be making it’s way to Yelton Fine Jewelers. From what I hear the reaction was even better than we expected. Even though the ladies only had a few pieces in tow, the moms in the room had no problem envisioning their own custom piece. One that would tell their own unique story.


That’s exactly why I love this line so much. It’s just so personal. Using responsibly sourced metals, Slate and Tell creates pendants, rings, and cuff bracelets that can be hand-stamped to carry your custom message. Think your kids’ names, your favorite phrases, family birthdates, your anniversary, or the nicknames of your besties. Anything you want to show off, you can now do so fashionably.

Be on the lookout for this amazing new line at Yelton Fine Jewelers. In the meantime, start dreaming about your own custom piece.

Summer AKA Repair Season

Every three to five thousand miles we bring our cars in for an oil change. We have the tires rotated. And, when something seems a little “off” we take it into the mechanic. When it comes to our homes we spend countless hours per week tidying up. We replace carpeting when it gets dingy. And, when the hot water heater fails us we get a new one … right away.


It’s a part of life, and an important step in protecting any asset. So, why is it that when it comes to our jewelry we only tend to fix it when it’s broken? That is, if we even do that. At some point or another we’ve all broken a necklace chain and thrown it right into the abyss that is our jewelry box. Never to see it again … sigh.

Just like your car and your home, your jewelry should be inspected, cleaned, and serviced regularly. After all, you paid a lot for in the first place. Don’t you want to keep it shiny and bright?!

If you’re looking for a little incentive to bring your jewelry items back to life, well, now is the time because it’s repair season at Yelton Fine Jewelers. Now through July 31st we’re offering 20% off of all jewelry repairs and a whopping 50% off of watch batteries*.

Yelton_RepairsAvailable_Email (1)

Bring us one piece, or your entire jewelry box. Come with the necklace that broke yesterday and that ring that’s been missing a stone for years. Whatever you have hiding at the back of your jewelry drawer – we want to bring it to life!

And, it doesn’t stop there.

Once your broken jewelry items are restored to their original condition, don’t forget to give them the regular love and attention that they deserve. I recommend cleaning monthly, if not weekly. Your prongs should be checked every six months. And, even if your jewelry doesn’t look like it’s suffering still bring it to Yelton Fine Jewelers annually for a check-up. Please, I beg you!

Because jewelry is meant to shine!

*Some exclusions apply. Cannot be applied to watch repairs. In-stock watch batteries only. Valid through 7/31/2017. See store for details.

Greetings From Vegas

While there are hundreds of jewelry shows every year, there is only one that shines the brightest – it’s JCK Las Vegas. We’ve been here since Monday and it’s been one hot, and wild ride. From selecting new lines to meeting with other industry professionals, every day we’ve been working hard. And, to balance things out, every night we’ve been playing hard{er}.

While there is still one full day left before we pack up our bags to go home, here are some of our highlights so far …


As you might know by know, when it comes to jewelry designers, I tend to pick favorites. Can you blame a girl? Every year when JCK Las Vegas rolls around I get a little giddy because I know I’m going to have the opportunity to meet with my favorite brands, pick their brains, and see what they have coming down the pipeline. While we’ve met with so many people over the last three days, my highlights so far have been Simon G., Tacori, and Hearts On Fire. So much sparkle, and so much innovation. We can’t wait to tell you what these brands have in store.



I thought I threw a great party, but JCK Las Vegas sure has it down. From delicious dinner parties to evening soirees they’ve done such a great job at keeping the entire jewelry industry entertained. Not only are these events fun, but they’re also a great opportunity to mingle with other jewelers, up and coming designers, service providers, you name it! One thing is for sure, there is no shortage of talent in Vegas this week and we’ve had so much fun connecting with faces, old and new.



There are so many perks associated with JCK Las Vegas, but the thing we love the most is the ability to bring home new products to you, our customers. Day after day we’ve been strolling the exhibitor floor to find the dream pieces you’ve described. We’ve spent hours talking about trends we’re on board with, and those that we think will fizzle quickly. We’ve thought about the lines we love at the store, and those that could use some new life. After all of this thinking, talking, and trying, we are pretty stoked about the pieces that we’ll be bringing back to Yelton Fine Jewelers. Watch our showcases for new inventory. It’s coming soon!

One more day to go! Wish us luck. We look forward to seeing you all when we get back on home soil.
