Simon G Exclusive At Yelton Fine Jewelers

Simon G just launched an exclusive new jewelry collection, and guess who he chose to take the first glimpse? Yelton Fine Jewelers and all of our amazing customers, of course! And, we couldn’t be more excited about it. Well, at least I am. Who’s with me?

As most of you know I’ve been a huge Simon G fan since I first laid eyes on his beautiful craftsmanship. Over the years this admiration has resulted in many collaborations, but I could never have imagined anything this good. I’m still flattered {and floored} that they approached us.

So, here’s the deal …

Simon is sending us roughly 100 amazing, sparkly, and brand-spanking new jewelry pieces to take a look at. If we love them, we get first dibs on purchasing them. But, that’s not all. Simon is also offering 15% off for Yelton customers and he’ll have gift bags for the first 50 attendees. Phew.

In a nutshell, we’re so spoiled. And, it’s amazing.

If you ask me this is a great excuse to splurge on a gift for yourself, or surprise someone that you love. It just so happens that this exclusive pop-up shop is happening on Saturday, May 12th – the day before Mother’s Day! Now is your chance to secure that kiddo or hubby of the year award.

For more information give us a call, or check out the event on Facebook. See you all there!!

If It Shines, Layer It

As we have seen in all of the fashion magazines, layering is HOT! And I must say, of all of the jewelry trends that I’ve seen, this is one of my favorites! At least so far. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, or charms … these days if it shines, you can layer it. What a great opportunity to show off all of your favorite pieces in one look.

Ready to jump on board? Easy! Here’s the inside scoop on my favorite pieces to stack, combine, and layer …

Hearts On Fire

hof.jpg

The Optima Station Necklace from Hearts On Fire is a stunning piece that I never tire of. It’s a staple in my personal collection and if you you’ve seen me around the store lately, chances are that I had it on. Priced at $2,500 this is an affordable way to get that glistening diamond look. And, one that is perfect for layering! I’ve showcased it here with the Aerial Diamond Circle necklace, but really it pairs well with any other Hearts On Fire piece.

Jude Frances

If you gravitate more towards a boho-chic look be sure to check out our Jude Frances collections! Every single piece offers so much character and when it comes to layering the options are truly endless. Toss on a few bangles for a stylish, everyday look. Or, if you want to make a statement pair any of their station chain necklaces with a stunning, oversized pendant. The hardest part is figuring out which pieces to leave at home.

Slate & Tell

From their personalized charms to stacking rings Slate & Tell makes it super easy to achieve the layered look. And, with pieces start at just $39 there’s no need to break the bank! This is where I drop a major hint and say, PSST, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Get shopping hubbies and kiddos {wink}. You know how happy she’ll be when she unwraps a new set personalized with her kids’ names, birthdays, or birthstones? Very.

Happy layering everyone! To check out these beautiful pieces, and more, stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers in West Chester. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, a friend, or that rock star mom in your life we’ll help you get the look you’re searching for. No matter how many pieces it takes!

Spring Bridal Sale

Spring has arrived, at least the calendar says so. While we’re still waiting on warmer temps here in Ohio, we’re celebrating the change of season with our Yelton Fine Jewelers Spring Bridal Sale. Whether you need bands for your upcoming wedding, or want to upgrade your set for a milestone anniversary, we’ve got something for everyone!

Here are just a few of the trends that I’m loving …

Halo Engagement Rings

If you like it than you better put a halo on it! I’ve always been a huge fan of single, or even double halo engagement rings. They add extra shine and really make your center stone pop.

Mixing Metals

The age-old rule of sticking to one metal per outfit is out. Thank goodness. I love seeing the beautiful combinations of rose, white, and yellow gold both for our brides and our grooms.

 IMG_1203IMG_1190

Stacked Bridal Sets

Why stick to just an engagement ring and a wedding band, when you can keep on stacking? I love the idea of adding additional bands to represent children or milestone anniversaries.

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.

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 …

LeVian.

 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.

img_7407.jpg

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!

IMG_7409

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.

IMG_7408

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

Meghan-Markle

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

Screen Shot 2018-01-03 at 3.59.53 PM

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’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 …

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!
