Why Jewelry is such an important purchase?

I started working in our family jewelry store after graduating from Providence College in 1999. Being a people person, I could not have dreamt of a better job out of college. I got to talk to people for a living, learn valuable life lessons, and make meaningful life relationships (and hopefully they bought a piece of jewelry from me!) I always felt jewelry was an important purchase as it marked a special occasion and life moment such as Anniversary, Birthday, Christmas (termed the ABC gift).

It was not until the birth of my daughter in 2010 that my perspective of why jewelry is such an important purchase changed. Patek Phillipe’s tag line is “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation” and I never understood that until I saw my mom going through her jewelry and saying this is for my granddaughter. It then hit me that everything my Dad had bought for her over the years, 50th birthday, 25th anniversary was for her to pass on to the next generation someday. These pieces were their story and their continued legacy.

Dangle, Hoop, Stud: Whatever your preference is, it works!

A few days ago, I was asked a question that truly had me speechless. For those of you who know me well, you know that is no easy task (well to my defense it was no more than 10 seconds). This question was posed to me on a Designer conference call that I have attended weekly during our COVID break from KFJ – What is your favorite class of jewelry and why? Not as easy as one would think.

What is it about summer vacations in the Caribbean that make for such special and unforgettable memories? Is it the turquoise blue water and the blonde beaches? The endless blue skies and dazzling sunshine? The lazy days and sizzling nightlife? If you ask us, it is a combination of all these things, and it varies from person to person. For some, the ideal summer getaway includes exploring new shores and discovering new slices of paradise. For others, the perfect summer moment is as simple as sipping piña coladas poolside while working to bronze away tan lines.
