It's almost Christmas-time! We've already gotten a taste of winter...some cold air and snow! The lights and decorations are so pretty, and the sounds and smells of the season are delightful! While it's our pleasure to help you select the perfect gift and wrap it up carefully, it's most important to reflect upon the ultimate gift - the coming of Jesus Christ so long ago. The humble Savior-King still offers His grace, love, and peace to all who believe and receive. We often are told about your personal needs and concerns, and it is a great honor to listen and to pray about them. Indeed it is the busy, exciting, joy-filled time of the year. We celebrate it with you! At the same time, we realize that there are many hurting and needy people in our world. It is our prayer that the store shines the light of God's love as well as the sparkle of the gems He created for us to enjoy. May you all have a blessed holiday season! ~Del, Julie, Robin, Joyce, and Jon
It’s Thanksgiving week once again, and we are reminded to pause and reflect upon all that we have for which to be thankful. While there is much turmoil and hardship in the world today, there is still so much that we are blessed to have and to enjoy. Life is a precious gift!
Each day includes a unique opportunity here at the store to be a part of other people’s life-story; often in celebration of a special occasion. We are most grateful for your trust and confidence. Throughout our twenty-plus years in the community, we have also been favored with the finest of suppliers and service providers. Each one of us participates in a unique and precious tapestry of relationships. For all of you, our friends, we pray for a peaceful and wonderful Thanksgiving! God bless you! Del, Julie, Robin, Joyce, and Jon
Pictured above with me is our dear friend, Louis. He came into our lives the first year after moving the store to Lee's Summit. We always enjoy conversation, and the goodness of God is among our favorite topics. We've encouraged and prayed each other through some challenging times, and our friendship has been forged through these shared experiences. One of his favorite phrases is "C'mon, Man!" It's a great one. I love it; so often applicable! We frequently discuss happenings in the world of sports, too...Here are some memorable examples of talk about such things): Remember the Royals in 2014, going all the way to game seven of The World Series? (Then winning it all in 2015!) How about that, Louis!?! "C'mon, Man!" And then, that Super Bowl a few years ago where Atlanta blew a multi-score lead in an eventual loss to the Patriots...Oh, yeah..."C'mmmonnn, Man!!" (We over-use it now, but it's fun!) These moments we sit down to share are filled with meaning and joy. You've heard it here before and I'll repeat it - serving you, getting to know (and be part of) your story and your life's occasions is a high honor. We humbly appreciate your friendship, loyalty, and trust. It wasn't ever "all about" the jewelry..."C'mon, Man!" It's about the relationships first.
Happy October! God bless you, Del
After what seemed to have been the longest winter in recent memory, Summer time is finally here! No matter what the weather conditions, however, LOVE is always in season. Each week, it is our great joy to be a part of many different love stories; engagements, anniversarys, birthdays, and other special occasions. The sentimental value and emotion conveyed through the gift of a piece of jewelry is among the most cherished...many pieces are passed down through generations and enjoyed by loved ones. No matter what you spend - at any occasion, or for any reason, a gift of jewelry truly endures. Being your personal jeweler is a high honor. Thank you for this privilege and for your continued trust and support.
