Every holiday season, we have sales, events, giveaways, and more, all as a sign of appreciation to our customers for shopping small (that is, shopping at a small business such as ours) while they're out getting gifts for their family and loved ones. This year, we wanted to really do something spectacular. Something memorable. So this holiday season, we're having our biggest giveaway ever. We're giving away diamonds.
Until Christmas day, every purchase of $150 or more in our store (or on our website) will enter you in a raffle to win a pair of diamond studs. On Christmas morning, as our family sits around the tree, we will go on Facebook Live to announce not just one winner, but many. Only one lucky customer will win diamonds, but additional tickets pulled will have some surprises in store, so don't miss out!
The diamond studs, pictured below, have a retail value of $499. Shop at Marie's Jewelry for your chance to win a little something extra this Christmas!
Every year your loved ones try to figure out the best gift they could possibly get you, sometimes even asking directly for a list. With that in mind, we made a list you can share with them. Below are our top 5 gift ideas, many of which are sold exclusively by Marie's Jewelry!
If this blogpost were to show up on your Facebook wall, that might be a good way to *hint* at what you're hoping to unwrap this holiday season ;]
1. The most beautiful stretch bracelets by Edna Haak
Classy and elegant are the only two words that can describe these pieces. Made in Italy, these bracelets are available in 18 Karat Gold Vermeil, Sterling Silver, and/or Murano Glass Beads. Edna Haak's collection has had enormous success recently and is still very limited outside of New York City's 5th Avenue and Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. We think this is going to be the most popular item on every gift list this year.
2. Diamond Bezel Necklaces
Marie designs them herself, so each piece is truly one of a kind. A simple, stunning diamond, sitting solo in the middle of a 14K gold cable chain. This is every girl's dream necklace!
3. Alex & Ani's 2015 Holiday Collection (Limited Edition)
Our Alex & Ani selection is bigger than ever. We have thousands of bracelets in stock, but make sure you take note of the brand new, limited edition 2015 Holiday Collection. Alex & Ani is also releasing a limited edition piece for Black Friday; the Snowflake. The Snowflake is a collector's item and we will only have 75 in stock. With such a limited run, you know someone was aiming to please if you happen to unwrap one this holiday season!
4. The Marilyn Monroe High Heel Bracelet from Elle V Designs
Designed by our manager Dawn, this piece is sold exclusively by Marie's Jewelry. Crafted by Elle V Designs, this piece features an onyx & Swarovski Crystal on a Sterling Silver bracelet with a dangle high heel charm. Each bracelet comes with a card that reads Marilyn Monroe's timeless quote: "Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."
5. The Exclusive Marie's Jewelry / Luca & Danni Heart Bangle
We collaborated with Luca & Danni to design our very own piece, the Heart Bangle. This is another item sold exclusively by Marie's Jewelry. The Heart is a green/purple AB, and comes on either a silver or gold wire. This piece is very close to heart for us at Marie's, and a portion of the proceeds from each bracelet we sell directly benefits the Connecticut Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
On Saturday, September 19th, we hosted an exclusive Tiffany Jazelle Trunk Show at our store! We invited 200 customers to attend the event. The owner and designer Tiffany Snow, of Tiffany Jazelle Fashion with Meaning (now being rebranded as T. Jazelle), traveled to our store from Cape Cod to meet her fans. She designed 30 limited edition bracelets exclusively for our trunk show and unveiled her new 2015 Fall Collection. Within just a few hours, our customers got stacked with over 250 bracelets and 50 necklaces! The 30 limited edition bracelets sold out in under 10 minutes!
We love everything Tiffany designs because each piece has MEANING. Every charm, stone, and bead holds it's own significance; together this provides each piece with it's own identity. You can tell a story simply by stacking your wrists or layering necklaces. Each piece comes with a T. Jazelle Signature Card that offers the wearer insight into the meaning behind the materials used to create the piece. This is the kind of jewelry that makes a perfect gift; stackable, beautiful, and inspired.
While Tiffany was in town, she let us know that her team is working on a display specifically for our store and we can't wait to see it! Marie's Jewelry was the first retailer in Connecticut to carry Tiffany's designs; we believed in her vision, her mission, and her dream. Since then, the T. Jazelle brand has grown to become a shining example of what a small business can become when someone is not only inspired, but hard working as well.
We consider Tiffany to be part of our family and we couldn't be more proud of how successful she's become, how popular her brand is with our customers, and for being such a beautiful soul, inside and out. Next time you stop in the store be sure to take a look at her pieces and ask about any limited edition or Marie's Jewelry exclusives we may have in stock!
Thank you for loving this line as much as we do.
