Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Psst, guys this post is for you. It’s possible that you’ve already got her gift purchased, wrapped, and sitting under the tree just waiting to be unveiled. It’s possible, but just in case you’re not quite there yet here are a few last-minute gift ideas that I promise she’ll love.

First and foremost, when it comes to gift giving there are so many options! It’s almost overwhelming. But let’s be real … jewelry is what every woman really wants. From stocking stuffers to showstoppers here is your guide to making Christmas 2018 a memorable one …

Magical Moments: Hearts On Fire

IMG_6640

You know that magical holiday moment where her eyes light up as she unwraps her gift and then she gazes directly at you in awe?! If that’s what you’re looking for, that bow better be around a Hearts On Fire piece. My favorite choice is the classic Fulfillment Pendant which can also be paired with the Aerial piece to give you a whole new look.

Instant Glam: Simon G

IMG_3394

Okay, okay, it’s no secret that I love everything from Simon G. And, for good reason … his pieces make everyone feel glamorous! If your girl loves color I would recommend wrapping up one of his amazing colored gemstone pieces. If her look is more natural I am loving the new rough-cut diamond collections which manage to deliver the perfect balance between modern and timeless.

Versatile Style: Club 925

IMG_7405IMG_0220

Anything you find in our Club 925 room is a great choice! What I love about these silver pieces is their versatility. From day to night. From casual to dressy. They cover it all! There are so many great options but personally I would hone in on the stackables from LaFonn and our new, super chic earring collections from Nina Nguyen.

To check out these collections and others that will light up her holiday season stop by Yelton Fine Jewelers. We have some amazing holiday deals available through December 24th so even if you don’t get in right away, we’ve still got your back {wink}.

Looks To Add To Your Holiday Wish List

Brace yourself … there are less than three weeks left until Christmas! Can you believe it? If you haven’t stopped in yet to create your wish list now is the time my friends. From sparkly white diamonds to layered looks, here are a couple of looks that I wouldn’t mind finding under my tree this year {hint, hint}.

Statement Earrings

Boho ladies, our earring collections from Nina Nguyen were designed with you in mind. Just when I think I’ve figured her out Nina surprises me with something new. The unique stones, the detailed craftsmanship, and the natural vibe … you’ll love it all. I know I do! 

Chocolate You Can Wear

IMG_5844

For those of you who want to add a little more contrast to your look I highly recommend considering a chocolate diamond piece from Le Vian. Incorporating precious metals with fashion-forward designs, these pieces are the perfect way to get noticed in the New Year. 

Combined Looks

IMG_5843

What’s better than Hearts On Fire or Simon G? Hearts On Fire and Simon G together, in the same ensemble. That’s right I did it. This layered look is just one example of how you can get creative and combine multiple styles. I mean why ask for one piece when you can as for two?! 

Everyday Glam

IMG_5841LaFonn has combined sterling silver and simulated diamonds to add the perfect amount of glam to everyday pieces. These earrings and pendants make a fabulous gift for anyone on your list, including yourself {wink, wink}! 

For these looks and more – get your hands on the 2018 Yelton Fine Jewelers holiday catalog. From cover-to-cover you’ll find plenty of ideas to send over to Santa. And, if you need help relaying the message, well, consider me your helpful little elf. Ho, ho, ho!

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.

 unnamed

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!

Holiday Stress? It’s A Blessing.

Get up. Scan e-mails. Make breakfast. Address a handful of holiday cards. Get the kids to school. Go to work. Run errands during lunch to check off a couple more wish list items. Get off work. Rush to the post office. Think about working out. Instead, glam up for the next holiday party. Mingle. Get home. Wrap all of the packages that arrived on the porch. Hit the internet to check on those presents that are still in transit from the North Pole. Reply to group texts about work party, ladies holiday cheer, and family gatherings. Clean up, a little bit. Sleep, a little bit. Repeat.

Does anyone else’s life feel a little like this lately?

The holidays are crazy, no doubt, but sometimes we get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle that we lose sight of what this season is really all about. We get blindsided by our social calendars and forget to cherish our relationships. We stress about our shopping list without remembering how fortunate we are. We get anxious when the checkout line is moving slooow without extending empathy to those behind the counter.

It’s so easy to do and I know, I am guilty too! As my gift to you this holiday season, here’s just a little reminder to take a moment. Look around. Like, really … look around. When you do you’ll start to notice that this stress that we all experience this time of year. It’s a blessing.

We’re lucky because we can afford to put presents under the tree. We’re loved by the friends and family who surround us. We’re fortunate to be able to look forward to warm, holiday meals. And, when we recognize that there are plenty of people out there who don’t have the same luxuries, we have an opportunity to be humbled. We have an opportunity to give back.

Tina

At Yelton Fine Jewelers this year we’re paying it forward through our Holiday Giving Giveaway. Everyday I’m packaging up a stocking with something sparkly to bring joy to someone who deserves it. Play along on our Facebook Page, and also start thinking about how you can give to someone in need this year. Donate to one of your favorite charities. Visit someone who is lonely. Or, spend some time volunteering. This blessing we all have? Let’s share it.

Happy holidays everyone! I am so grateful for all of you and look forward to hearing how you spread cheer this year. Wishing you a season full of happiness, and all of the other things that really count <3.

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.

Wishing you all a happy, love-filled Valentine’s Day. You know where to find me if you need gift advice!
