Several months ago, we were asked to consider donating an item to an event that would be raising much-needed funding for a Kansas City area organization which rescues victims of human trafficking. It was an honor to design and hand-make a special necklace for the event, which was held on January 23rd. It was a night we will always remember. All who attended were deeply moved by the enormity of the need to help restore the victims to wholeness. We came back thinking...every one of us can make a difference in someone's life! At ESPECIALLY JEWELRY, it is our continued commitment to support and encourage this type of noble work in our community and around the world. Stop in some time soon! There's a lot more of the story to share with you.
Unbelievably, another year has passed. As the calendar changes into January, 2016, we pause to reflect upon the thousands of times that you, our friends--our incredibly loyal and supportive "family" have come in to select a gift, have a watch battery changed, or to have your jewelry repaired. We are so grateful for you all. As we've stated before, the store is here for you and "about" you, not us. We were told recently that our store had a friendly and caring spirit that had not been found in other jewelry stores. That is our goal--an environment that truly welcomes you and genuinely cares about value, integrity, and friendly service.
As the song says: "fast away the old year passes"...Well, it's a new year now! We are truly excited to share new ideas, designs, and expanded technology with you in the days ahead.
God bless you. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Among the "treasures of Earth" given by God our Creator to enjoy, the gemstones and precious metals take their place uniquely; they symbolize milestones and memories. They endure.
The gift of jewelry, whether or not it is expensive or ornate, speaks in a manner in which words often cannot. A keepsake piece of jewelry becomes a message -- a message of love, commitment, and recognition. It is always special to hear the personal story that relates to your jewelry, whenever it is brought in for a simple cleaning or a major repair. Every piece possesses meaning to its wearer.
Perhaps it's time to convey a message of special significance to one you love...it is an honor to assist you in the selection of the perfect jewelry gift. We warmly invite you to stop in!
As each week passes, we are experiencing a renewal of the original passion to sit at the workbench and see beautiful pieces of jewelry come alive. So many types of jewelry are now mass-produced and weakly constructed; this does not encourage lasting appeal. As the Holiday Season fast approaches, we are designing and planning more unique (and very affordable) rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. We can hardly wait to show them to you!
