Show Us Your Heart Of Gold

As some of you know promoting healthy hearts is a cause that’s near and dear to me. When I lost my father to heart disease in 2012 it was a wake up call. One of those moments where you realize, ah ha, our time on this earth is in fact limited. Our bodies our one of our greatest assets. And, these people we surround ourselves by? We should tell them that we love them … every day.

If you too feel passionate about supporting the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers this month and show us your heart of gold. The details go a little something like this …

We appreciate your support as we work to put together a {hopefully sizeable} donation for these two organizations. Whether or not you round up your transactions, I do beg all of you to familiarize yourself with the symptoms of a heart attack and stroke in case of an event. Here, I’ll make it easy one you …

  • Heart attack symptoms: Chest pains, discomfort in the upper body, shortness of breath, cold sweat, nausea, lightheadedness.
  • Stroke symptoms: Sudden changes including numbness or weakness especially on one side, confusion, difficulty speaking, trouble seeing, severe headache with no known cause.

If you, or someone you love is experience any symptoms call 9-1-1, immediately. You could save a life.

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.

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}.

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.

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 Extravaganza

While I know it’s not technically spring {yet}, I already have sunshine on my mind. If you too are looking for a little inspiration to get you through these last weeks of winter join us at Yelton Fine Jewelers for our Spring Extravaganza Event.

Friday, March 10th and Saturday, March 11th we’ll be celebrating seasonal jewelry trends in hopes to bring warmer temps, blooming flowers, and chirping birds back to Ohio ASAP. Join us and you could save up to $1,000 off of your purchase*.

As a sneak peak, here are some of the looks that I’m betting on for Spring 2017 …

Halos

In the bridal world, it’s all about the halo right now. If you ask me it’s the perfect way to bring your center stone to life. When it comes to this trend, Fana is knocking it out of the park. I don’t think I have seen an engagement ring from them that I didn’t love.

Stackables

Rings, necklaces, and bracelets. You can stack almost anything these days and it will instantly transform your wardrobe. One brand that has done a great job in creating mix and match styles is our beloved, Hearts On Fire. Personally, I have my eyes set on the Optima Four Station Diamond Bangle {Retail: $2,400}.

Geometrics

When it comes to bling we love geometric shapes, and we’re so glad to see them trending in 2017. If you like this sleek, modern look Gabriel New York has your back. My top pick is this stunning white gold and diamond necklace {Retail: $745}, especially when paired with the matching drop earrings {Retail: $825}

Mixed Metals

There is nothing better than a splash of color to welcome spring in style! Luckily some of our favorite designers agree. Check out these stunning mixed metals pieces from Simon G., Tacori, and LeVian. I love seeing the creative use of rose gold, and the diamond accents. Well, those never hurt either.

mixed-metals

These pieces and more are featured in our Spring Extravaganza Flip Book. Check it out, or stop by the store on March 10th or 11th to try them on for yourself. I hope to see you all there, for the love of Spring!!

Looking Beyond The Holiday Madness

There are only seventeen days until Christmas folks. How are you holding up? Working in the retail industry, I see first hand how the holidays affect people. At the beginning of December people saunter through the store. They’re calm and collected. They choose gifts carefully, and thoughtfully. And, then December 20th comes. That’s when things start to get a little bit crazy. People rush through the store like it’s a marathon. They’re frantic. Sometimes, I wonder if they even know what they bought or whom it’s for.

Ahhh, the holidays.

We’ve all had our moments of madness and every single year we look back and say “next year, I’m going to be more prepared”. Well, not to be a Debby downer, but I’m going to say it. Let’s not kid ourselves. Having tried so many ways to stay ahead of the holiday game, I’ve learned that the “rush” is inevitable. That said, it doesn’t define the season.

While I’ll never give up on the mad dash to get the cards out the doors, the presents under tree, and the food on the table, there’s a lot more to it. For me Christmas is a celebration of my faith, and the birth of baby Jesus. It’s an opportunity for me to enjoy some down time with my family and catch up on sleep {wink}. It’s a nice pause to reflect, appreciate recent accomplishments, and count my blessings.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

We’ve got seventeen days to go everyone! It’ll be great. If it starts to get a little hectic just take a deep breath. In that moment, remember it’s not about fancy bows, perfectly decorated cookies, and having the most beautiful tree. In that moment, step away from your task list and go do something that will remind you what Christmas is really all about.

For our family the best way to reconnect is always a visit to our church, New Life Chapel. They’re offering a variety of services on December 23rd and December 24th. All are welcome, and we would love to have you there to celebrate with us!

I hope to see you all soon, whether that’s at Yelton Fine Jewelers, around town, or at church. If there is anything I can do to help your holiday season go a little bit smoother, don’t hesitate to give me a shout. Xo.

‘TIS THE SEASON FOR BLING

November is less than week away, and brace yourself … there are only eight Saturdays left until Christmas. I feel like it was just yesterday that our family was traveling around the country in an RV, yet the boys are back in school, the days are growing shorter, and “the most wonderful time of year” is just around the corner. How does it all happen so fast?!

If you’re anything like me, you’re not one to procrastinate when it comes to holiday shopping. I’ve already made my list, checked it twice, and have started hiding gifts from the boys {shhh}. Along with getting my personal shopping done, we’re also getting things kicked off at Yelton’s as well.

As we move into the 2016 holiday season, we decided to shake it up a little bit, and our customers are on the receiving end! Stop by the store anytime between November 1st and December 1st to make your wish list and you’ll receive an awesome Yelton Fine Jewelers Swag Bag. When you come in, be sure to look for me because I can’t wait to show off all of the MUST HAVE gifts and jewelry for the season.

On top of our swag bag promotion, also be sure to mark your calendars for November 18th and 19th. During this two-day event we’ll be celebrating one of my favorite designers, Simon G. Having been in this industry for many years I’ve seen a lot of bling, and yet each time Simon G launches a new collection, I find myself in awe all over again. Stop in to check out his latest pieces and appreciate his dedication to artistry.

Tis the season for bling and as we approach the holidays, I want to make sure that all of my ladies find something sparkly under the tree this year. If you need help making your wish lists, or dropping hints, give me a shout. Hope to see you all soon!

Hearts On Fire VIP Diamond Event

Do you like diamonds? How about diamonds that sparkle like the stars? If you answered yes, you’re not going to want to miss our Hearts On Fire VIP Diamond Event at the end of this month!

Join us at Yelton Fine Jewelers on October 21st and 22nd to see, admire, and try on some of the worlds most perfectly cut diamonds. While I love everything from Hearts On Fire, here are three pieces that I am particularly excited about …

ATLANTICO CUFF BRACELET

Talk about the statement piece! This cuff bracelet showcases a twisted design that is brought to life by 3.25 carats of sparkling, round cut white diamonds. The rose gold variation delivers a modern look, though if you’re craving something a little more classic this cuff comes in yellow gold as well.

TRANSCEND STUD EARRINGS

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Every girl deserves a beautiful pair of diamond earrings and these studs from the Hearts On Fire Transcend collection certainly fit the bill. With 0.90 carats of glimmering white diamonds, when you put them on you’ll immediately feel like a princess.

LeVian Day At Yelton Fine Jewelers

I’ve been all smiles lately, as one of my favorite events of the year is just around the corner. Let me give you a hint; there will be stunning chocolate diamonds, blushing peach morganite, and even some oh-so-trendy neopolitan opals. It’s LeVian Day at Yelton Fine Jewelers and you’re not going to want to miss out!

Join us on Thursday, September 22nd from 10AM to 6PM to view over 1,000 pieces of jaw-dropping LeVian jewelry. Since I fell in love with chocolate diamonds, LeVian hasn’t let me down. I’ve already added three of their pieces to my personal collection and am hoping to pick up another at the event. When you see how they sparkle, you’ll understand my obsession. This girl gets it …

LeVian Trunk Show

To RSVP for the event visit the Yelton Fine Jewelers website, or e-mail me personally at tina@yeltons.com. Attendees who RSVP in advance are eligible to receive 20% off of their next LeVian purchase. On top of that, if you book an appointment with me I may just have a special gift for you.

Hope to see you all there!

Moms & Mimosas

July came and went, and it’s hard to believe that school is just around the corner! We’ve already started back-to-school prep in our house – stocking up on school supplies, securing uniforms, and practicing those early morning wake up calls. My kids are NOT happy, but I’m trying to stay strong. #willpower

If you too are a Mother gearing up for the next school year, I’m sure you’re feeling the pressure too. Well, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s an event called Moms & Mimosas. What’s not to love?

Jan Collins is the host of this awesome gathering. For those who don’t know her, she’s a rock-star businesswoman that just happens to own two of my favorite local restaurants – Putters and Cozy’s Cottage. While Jan’s kids are now grown, she knows first hand how busy summer and school prep can be. So, after the kiddos hop on the bus for the first day, she decided us Mom’s deserve some fun too!

This year Moms & Mimosas will be held on August 16th from 9AM to 11AM at Putters in West Chester, OH. I’m lucky to have partnered with Jan on the event this year, and with our forces combined we’ve kicked it up a notch. Expect great food, good company, gift bags, and some pretty spectacular raffle prizes.

If your kids have a different start date, let’s chat. Maybe we can get a second date on the calendar! Even though my kids start on August 22nd, I’m still planning to hire a sitter and join in on the fun. Hope to see you all there!!

Bling For Spring

We’ve returned from our great RV adventure and I have to say, wow! What an amazing few weeks it has been. I hope many of you were able to follow our spring break journey across the country. I’ll admit it. Before leaving, I wasn’t quite sure how I would do camping, but it was a blast. I recommend this exact trip to everyone. I plan to create a replica of our itinerary for those that have requested it, if you want a copy too, let me know!

With the open road behind me, I am already gearing up for a different kind of fun. Spring fashion trends are blossoming, bridal season is already booming and ahem, Mother’s Day is just 38 days away! It’s such an exciting time to come back to work and I can’t wait to find the perfect home for all of this fabulous jewelry that we have at the store.

If you ask me there’s no better way to kick off this shopping season than our upcoming Tacori Spring Bling event …

Tacori_Event

Join us Friday, April 8th and Saturday, April 9th to get in on the fun! For the couples we’ll have jaw-dropping engagement rings and matching wedding band sets. For Mother’s Day there will plenty of stunning pieces to help you express your sentiment. And, if you’re looking to splurge on a little piece for yourself I’d be happy to show off the Tacori fashion collection. There’s something for everyone and believe me, you’re not going to want to miss out on these weekend only deals!
