February Newsletter 2023
Happy February! This month we get to indulge our love for all things pink and heart-shaped, like these romantic tourmaline rings from Arman Sarkisyan. We are open Tuesday - Thursday from 10am to 4pm and Friday - Saturday from 10am to 5pm for your Valentine gift giving. Stop by anytime or make an appointment. You can also text us at our main number (206.623.2528).
February's birthstone is regal purple amethyst. Amethyst is believed to relieve stress, soothe irritability, balance mood swings, and dispel fear, anxiety, and negativity. This amethyst and diamond cobblestone heart from Single Stone would be the perfect gift for your February baby. Emerald, opal, turquoise, ruby, and sapphire are available as well!
Instead of a box of chocolates, how about a Candy ring from Alex Sepkus? Every color mix is hand-selected with multicolored sapphires and diamonds. We've been carrying this incredible designer for 30 years now, and we love the glow of his intricately hammered 18k gold. All of the detail work on these heirloom-quality pieces is done by hand under a microscope!
Give her the moon and stars with celestial jewelry from Single Stone and John Apel. Jewelry with celestial motifs evokes a sense of joy and magic, and is associated with luck, love, and protection. Throughout the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian periods, a moon and star together were a sweet statement of love, and where we can derive the phrase, “love you to the moon and back."
February is tulip season at Pike Place Market, and our giant tulip windows are back! Nothing goes better with a bunch of flowers than our favorite Alex Sepkus heart pendant. We love how subtle the heart shape is, which makes this necklace a great choice even if you don't think of yourself as a heart jewelry person.
This month marks the 15-year anniversaries of Keiko and Justine! They started a week apart in 2008. Keiko is our inventory manager, and keeps the store running with her impeccable organizational skills. She loves to garden and keep bees in her spare time. Justine is our buyer, and also runs our social media. When she's not thinking about jewelry, she loves to read and quilt.
