It’s always bridal season at Ellis Jewelers! There are couples always coming in to shop for diamond engagement rings, wedding bands, and other gifts for their upcoming weddings. After all, if you think about it, everyday is some wonderful couple’s anniversary! This is our business, our forte, and what we love to do. But by thinking outside the “ring” box, we can also start you on your way to some other fine and memory-filled jewelry for your wedding day. If you recall the phrase “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” jewelry can be the perfect item(s) to fulfill all those requirements!
There are a several ways that we can help you with “something old.” We can take stones or mountings that you already have or that have been passed on from family and transform them into other pieces. Old diamonds can become so many things: pendants, stud earrings, dangle earrings. Jewelry that can be worn with your wedding dress and beyond! And if there’s a special ring that has been passed on to you but it just doesn’t fit, and you’d like to wear it on your right hand or maybe a finger other that your ring finger, we can size it for you!
On your wedding day, it may be time for a classic, new piece of fine jewelry. May we suggest pearls. Pearls are still current. They still complete the look of any bride’s wardrobe. At our store, we have a great pearl look for any budget. Our looks range from modern to classic and include sea and freshwater. Stop by and describe your dress or show us a picture, and we will match the perfect sized strand or set of stud or dangle pearls earrings to complement your look.
This may be the one category where you might think that at Ellis Jewelers may have met our match! But ha! There is at least one way that we can help with “something borrowed.” If there is a jewelry piece that someone special has let you borrow for your special day, we can CLEAN it!! Come in and let us spruce it up for you. If it’s just needs a simple cleaning, we will just put it in the ultra sonic. No charge at all for that!! If the piece needs a little more treatment, our master jeweler will give it a little more attention at a minimal charge.
Recently, one of our sales associates made a beautiful, custom piece for a bride. It actually encompassed something old and new (her grandmother’s diamonds and a new pendant mounting), but I am including it under blue, because the piece also included sapphires – something BLUE! A mother had us make the necklace which she then presented to her daughter (the bride) at the rehearsal dinner. Truly a meaningful and gorgeous gift.
At Ellis Jewelers, we are always here to help you with your wedding rings, of course, but look forward to helping you create some other pieces as well. Whether you are in need of something old, something new, something borrowed, or something blue for your special day, we have just the expertise and skills you need to make your wedding jewelry dreams come true. If it’s repairing an old treasured piece passed down for generations to a brand new piece just waiting to attain that “same” status in the family for future generations, we will share our advice to help you purchase or create perfect, fine jewelry pieces. We aim to make you happy! After all, that’s what our business is all about.
