The holiday season is just around the corner, and it’s about that time to start gathering some gifts for all your loved ones. Yes it’s still a bit early, but the early bird gets the worm! Luckily for all of you, my friends over at Yelton Fine Jewelers are on their A-game! As of last Thursday, they just opened up and launched Club 925. Already sounds so cool and fancy, right? They wanted created a room to give all of you a boutique like setting to shop for fashionable sterling silver lines for your every day wear.
Have you ever noticed a number or lettered code on the inside or back of your fine jewelry? Basically, its purpose is to identify things like metals, carat weights, manufacturers, trade marks, jewelers, or designers. Sounds pretty practical, am I right? In order to identify real Sterling Silver, the stamp 925 will be printed on the piece.
Now why 925, you might ask? I sure was wondering that. Pure silver is made of 99.9% silver and 0.01% of a mixture of metals, such as copper. Now, 925 Sterling Silver is made up of 92.5% silver and the remaining part consists of mostly copper. Pure silver is very soft, so it needs to be beefed up a bit. That way, your jewelry can stay safe. Hence, the number 925. Such a cool concept, right?! So come join the club, and let me introduce you to all the brands!
All of Nina Nguyen’s jewelry is produced using sustainable materials and is ethically crafted. As a brand, she is evolving to embrace earth conscious materials. “Inspired by organic gemstones, her current collection’s focus is on stones that slowly develop through the planet’s natural processes.” For example, those moonstone bracelets in the last picture… I’m obsessed! seriously might go back and snag one for myself.
What I really like about her story is that for 10 weeks she went backpacking through India. Like many of us, she was about to start her career in an industry she didn’t love. She took time off to gather her thoughts, and in the end took the leap of faith to create her jewelry line. Just goes to show, you should always fight for what you love people!
Lafonn’s mantra has always been driven by a woman’s desire to look and feel beautiful. But why should it be reserved for a privileged few? “Every woman of every age, ethnicity and lifestyle should be given the opportunity to own a beautiful, well-made piece of jewelry.” With that being said, Lafonn is a firm believer in having it all: affordability and wearability.
“Our mission is to provide every woman an opportunity to own a beautiful, well-made piece of jewelry at a price that is within reach. Our vision is to enable every woman to feel & look chic not only just at a special occasion, but at any moment, day or night.”
All I gotta say is #Girlboss!
After studying abroad for a semester in Florence, Italy, I’ve always been a sucker for Italian made pieces. With their factory in Tuscany, Italy, you can just see their culture exuding through their jewelry. “We take pride in both our products and the selected group of authorized retailers featuring the Alisa brand. Our company is dedicated to providing the highest level of craftsmanship to the legions of women who enjoy wearing the creations of Alisa.”
What’s great about their pieces is their versatility. Whether you are going out for a night out on the town, attending a holiday party, or doing some last minute Christmas shopping, Alisa understands the busy lifestyle of women. No matter your the occasion, she’s got you covered!
All I gotta say is JudeFrances Jewelry has got their finger on the pulse of the most current jewelry trends! “The endless combinations of the JudeFrances categories including the signature earring hoop and charm concept, stackable gold bangles, long layering chains and pendants, stylish cocktail rings and simple gold stackers, allow the JudeFrances collector to create a style distinct to her.” With her background in photography, she truly covers all angles for creating a vision for her company.
“As a collector, the JudeFrances woman can take the Ways the Wear to the Ways to Collect and create a jewelry wardrobe and look reflective of her own personal style.” The limit does not exist for styling opportunities when it comes to her pieces. Definitely one of my faves!
When it comes to the Elle customer, she is very aware of herself, and is not scared to go after what she wants. Created after Elle the magazine in Paris, the founder, Hélène Lazareff, wanted something more. She wanted to “open women’s appetites.” “We believe clothing without accessories is like a party with no cake.” From season to season, Elle Time & Jewelry is always on top of the current trends and colors. From chic to edgy, modern to bold, Elle really understands that there is no cookie cutter style.
“Each ELLE Jewelry Collection piece is finished with a layer of palladium and a layer of rhodium. This double combination promotes shine and durability, with hypoallergenic materials that resist tarnishing.” Any of their pieces are perfect for the girl who wants to bridge the gap between trendiness and timelessness.
Katie Loxton understands the little things in life that truly matter. From her carded bracelets, zipper pouches, note cards, and jewelry boxes, making pieces personal is what she’s best at. Whether you are shopping for a special gift for your bridal party, or the perfect stocking stuffers, a little goes a long way.
BB Becker already has my attention, considering BB are my initials! Although, the power of words is what BB Becker really stands behind. “The marriage of meaningful words with beautiful pieces of jewelry feeds their creative spirit.” A memory is worth a thousand words, and that is exactly what BB Becker wants to give back to their customers.
Everyone has a different love story to tell, and Slate & Tell wants to voice yours. “There is no limit to how many you can wear, there is no limit to how many you can give, there is no limit to who you can give to, we have a Slate for every occasion.” I especially fell in love with the feerless set down below. As a Kent State Golden Flash Alumni, lightning bolts hold a special place for me. Combine that with the love to travel, explore, and create, you get fearlessness. The perfect concoction for a meaningful gift (for me, haha). No matter the loved ones you are shopping for, you can create a customized piece that tells their personal story.
Oh the feels!
With so many great brands, it’s hard to narrow down which pieces are going to be the perfect fit for you and your loved ones. That’s why Yelton Fine Jewelers wanted to create Club 925, to give you the best of the best Sterling Silver. If you are in the West Chester/Cincinnati, OH area, be sure to come check it out!
