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!


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 …

Exclusive Simon G. Trunk Show

Simon G. is making his way back to Yelton Fine Jewelers next week to show off his stunning jewelry collections in person! Join us Friday, November 17th from 12PM to 7PM, and Saturday, November 18th from 10AM to 5PM for this exclusive event. Along with the opportunity to meet one of the most amazing jewelry designers I’ve ever encountered, you could also get up to 20% off of your purchase. 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.

Get Ready For Our Club 925 Launch Party

Are you looking for beautiful bling that won’t break the bank? Well, then you better mark your calendar for Thursday, October 19th from 10AM to 6PM. We’ll be unveiling the new Club 925 at Yelton Fine Jewelers and let me tell you, the cases will be full of stunning silver pieces that you’ll want to stack, layer, and show off. Here’s just a sneak peak of the lines that we’ll be featuring:



These personalized jewelry pieces are my latest obsession. Create one-of-a-kind necklaces for your bride tribe. Surprise your mom by engraving your initials on stackable rings. Or, put something together that tells your unique story. The options are truly endless. I just can’t wait to see what you all do with this amazing collection.



Nina Nguyen has a talent for creating amazing jewelry, and she’s also one heck of a human being. From her colorful gemstones, to her precious metals she does what she can to ensure that all of her materials are ethically sourced. She has also created her own women’s co-operative focused on training, employing, and empowering female artisans in Vietnam.



If it’s possible to achieve a look that’s both vintage and modern at the same time then Jude France has done it. From bangles, to statement earrings, and everything in between, I haven’t seen a piece from them that I didn’t like. The tasteful designs. The hints of old-world elegance. The attention to detail. Take one look and you’ll fall in love too.



Inspired by the Gaelic word for everlasting desire, Lafonn is known for their timeless jewelry collections. If someone comes to me looking for a way to add a bit of class to their everyday look, this is where I direct them. The designs are clean, pair well with any outfit, and boy do they sparkle.

Can’t wait to see you all on the 19th for this amazing launch party. Grab your friends and make your way down to the “club”. Oh, and did I mention that the price tag on these items starts at only $35. Truly, we’ve got something for everyone!

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.


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 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 …


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}.



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!



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 …


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.



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}.



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.


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.
