Unbelievably, it is the time to welcome a NEW YEAR! 2017 was filled with many blessings, surprises, and challenges. We are hopeful and excited about the possibilities and potential of this new year. It is our prayer that all of us will have an unmistakable awareness of the love, grace, and great plans of God for our lives. We desire to be an inspiration and encouragement to all who enter. The trust and loyalty you have shown to us over the years is deeply appreciated; relationships are cherished. It is a joy to celebrate life with you! Here's to our best year yet! Your EJ staff, Del, Julie, Robin, Jon, and Joyce

Unbelievably, it's been barely over FOUR YEARS since we moved from Independence to Lee's Summit. (2018 marks our 20th year to be open to the public.) We join together as a team and say THANK YOU AGAIN for the wonderful continued support from the community and beyond. Each week we meet new friends and welcome them into the ESPECIALLY JEWELRY family! The personal referrals, notes in the mail, social media posts, and phone calls encourage us more than you'll ever know. It's a turbulent time in our world, and we pray each day to bring kindness and joy into the lives that we touch. As the new season approaches, we look forward to meeting more new friends, and serving you with continued exceptional value and quality in fine jewelry. We love you all!
A few days ago, my friend Michael, a local State Farm insurance agent, visited the store in his gorgeous 1951 Chevy Coupe. Not having the courage to drive a 3-speed on the column after so long, I asked for the next best thing--a picture with Michael and his car. After he departed, I reflected on how the simple daily interactions with you--our friends and loyal customers, are so dear to us. This past week we've met new friends and greeted ones we've known since the "beginning" of ESPECIALLY. Sharing your special times, restoring a family keepsake, hearing plans of a surprise anniversary or engagement party...it's all such a privilege.
The gift of trust and friendship is of highest value to us. It has been stated before within this blog as well as the welcome page that the relationship dynamic of this business is of greater value than diamonds. You are the ones who bring the real sparkle to the jewels we offer!
Stop in and see us some time soon. (No antique classic car required! But if you have one, I'd love a picture--with or without me in it!) Have a super, safe, happy July! God bless, Del
