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 Yeltons.com. 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.

BASIC HOOPS

IMG_3431

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}

SILVER HOOPS

IMG_1160

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!

DIAMOND HOOPS

IMG_6137

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.

IMG_5111

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.

IMG_5112

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.

IMG_5110

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.

Moms_Mimosas

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.

Slate_Tell

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.

Maintenance.

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 …

THE BIG BRANDS

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.

THE MINGLING

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.

Tina_2

THE BEAUTIFUL BLING

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.

Five Jewelry Pieces Every Woman Deserves To Own

When it comes to jewelry, I don’t discriminate. I love it all. That said, some pieces are more practical than others and if you’re trying to prioritize your investments, I would say … stick to the basics. It’s better to have a few pieces that you can wear everyday versus one jaw-dropping piece that really only has a place on the red carpet.

If you ask me there are five jewelry pieces that every woman deserves to have in her jewelry box. Without further ado …

DIAMOND STUDS

If I had to pick one {yes, just one} piece of jewelry that every woman should own it would be a pair of diamond stud earrings. They go with everything and they add such a beautiful shine to your already beautiful face. The size doesn’t matter, the important thing is that they sparkle! At Yelton Fine Jewelers we offer a “Build A Carat” program with our studs. Put simply, if you buy a pair of studs and decide to upgrade later we’ll take the old pair off your hands and just charge you the difference. It’s a great way to get started, either for yourself or a loved one.
Stud Earrings

PEARL STUDS

Diamonds annnd pearls, you ask? Yes, you should have both. Generally 6-7mm is a great size for everyday wear, though it will depend on what you’re comfortable with. I’ve seen many women walking around with 10-12mm studs on these days, and it works, because they rock them with confidence. Really you can’t go wrong because, just like diamonds, pearls go with everything.

LONG NECKLACES

I am in love with long necklaces. And, when I say long I typically mean between 24 and 36 inches. From plain blouses to that simple black dress, long necklaces are such a great way to add a personality to the more basic pieces of your wardrobe. Just watch out if you have little kids at home, we all know how much they love to pull {wink}.
Layered_Necklace

DIAMOND HOOPS

Sometimes in life you want a little bit more than your everyday stud earrings can offer. I’m talking nights out with your ladies, important business meetings, and those fancy date nights with your one and only. In these situations I reach for my sparkling, diamond hoops. They’re such a perfect way to add a hint of glam to your wardrobe without screaming, “look at me, look at me”.
Luvente

LAYERED NECKLACES

More often than not, you’ll find me sporting a layered look. After all, why stop at one necklace when you can wear two, or even three?! My latest addition the below necklace featuring my boys’ birthstones. Technically it’s a Mother’s Day gift, but shhh, I’ve already been wearing it. At 15″ this piece looks great stacked with another 24″ necklace.

So ladies … what’s missing from your jewelry box? If you need help building your collection of essentials, stop by and see me at Yelton Fine Jewelers. And, remember, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Now is a great time to start dropping hints!

Travel The World With Simon G

Does anyone out there love Simon G. as much as I do? If so, you’re going to want to make your way to Yelton Fine Jewelers on April 21st and 22nd. For one weekend and one weekend only we’re going to have the opportunity to TRAVEL THE WORLD with one of the most sought after designers in the jewelry industry. That’s right, it’s Simon G. himself.

Like previous Simon G. events you’ll be able to mingle with the designer, drool over some of his most popular collections, and take advantage of some great offers. But, that’s not all …

During this exclusive event you’ll also have a unique opportunity to create your very own, one-of-a-kind Simon G. jewelry piece. Did your jaw just drop? Mine has been on the floor ever since we started planning his visit.

To get your passport to this amazing experience, be sure to RSVP at Yeltons.com. From there Simon G is going to take us around the world to show us stunning gemstones that he’s handpicked from Columbia. If {and when} you find one that you love, Simon G. will help you transform it into the jewelry piece of your dreams.

Here are a few pieces that I’ve been looking at for inspiration …

SAPPHIRE NECKLACE

As a September baby I would rock this necklace as a birthstone piece. Made of 18K white gold it features 0.33 carats of rich, blue sapphires at the center. The sparkling white diamonds are just icing on the cake {pun intended}.

IMG_2908

BUTTERFLY EARRINGS

I’m especially drawn to butterfly jewelry as it always reminds me of my late father. Just like him, these earrings represent natural beauty and freedom. If you’re looking for a statement piece, you have to try these on!

IMG_2909

LARIAT PENDANT

This 18K white gold lariat pendant is one of the most recent additions to my personal collection. It offers the perfect amount of sparkle and I’ve really enjoyed the adjustable length so that I can achieve multiple looks.

IMG_2910

Just imagine the possibilities! To guarantee your appointment, be sure to RSVP today. Along with the man of the hour {Simon G}, we’ve also invited a couple of other special guests to the event. Bloggers, Molly {@seemollyblog} and Bryanna {@cominginclutch} will be on the ground to capture this magical customer experience for us all to remember.

Can’t wait t see you all there!

Spring Looks I Love

The official start of spring is less than one week away {yippee}. In order to welcome the new season in style, I’ve already been incorporating bright colors and fun patterns into my wardrobe. Of all of the options that are out there, my obsession this year is floral print. I just can’t seem to get enough of it!

While floral doesn’t fall under the approved dress code at Yelton Fine Jewelers, if you see me outside of work, I promise, I’ll be blooming. To complete my perfect spring look, you better believe I’ll be adding a layer of bling. From to floral dresses, to garden inspired earrings, here are the spring looks that I love for 2017 …

Bohemian Blooms

Blouse_TacoriBangle

I am so glad that the bohemian look is sticking around for another season. Maybe I do have a little hippie in me after all. I love this blue floral blouse from Nordstrom because it delivers both fashion, and comfort. As for a jewelry pairing, it’s almost a no brainer. No boho outfit is complete without a cuff bracelet and no surprise, Tacori has come through for us once again.

 Spring Sophistication

Shift_Dress_Tacori_Earrings

What’s not to love about this floral shift dress from Nordstrom? It’s so versatile. Add a cami and pumps for a sophisticated work look, or rock it with a denim blazer and flats to keep it casual. And, the Tacori earrings! Talk about eye candy. Not only do they deliver an elegant sparkle, they also complement the blue tones in this dress so beautifully.

Go With The Flow

Skirt_SimonGEarrings

When that summer breeze kicks in, you’re going to want to reach for this flowy skirt from ASOS. It’s like wearing freedom {ahhhh}. To complement the organic look and feel of this skirt, I recommend these stunning drop earrings from the Simon G Garden collection. They’ll quickly become a staple in your spring wardrobe.

Casual Chic

Jacket_HOFPendant

I’m in love with this floral bomber jacket, and believe it or not, it’s from Target. Of course, they would! It’s so chic; yet still delivers that laid back look that’s perfect for running errands on the weekend. Since the jacket already has so much to offer, I recommend pairing it with a simple diamond pendant for just the right amount of shine.

Not Just For Ladies

MensShirt_TissotWatch

Guys, just because I’m talking floral doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Peruse the dress shirts next time you’re at a department store and I guarantee you’ll find plenty of subtle, floral patterns that you’ll actually like. Add a luxury timepiece, like this Stainless Steel Watch from Tissot and you’ll be ready to dominate the boardroom, or date night.

Spring is almost here, so let’s start dressing like it! If you have a spring look that you need help completing stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers to see me. I’ll help you find the perfect bling so that you can feel like you’re blooming too <3.
