June isn't over yet! Pearls are the perfect gift for graduation, wedding and anniversary gifts, and birthday presents for June babies. We carry both Akoya and South Sea pearls by Mikimoto, which has been the finest name in pearls since 1893, when Mikimoto Kokichi created the first cultured pearl by seeding oysters with a small amount of mother of pearl. Only the top 5% of all pearls Mikimoto produces are sold under their namesake brand.
In July we are so excited to be featuring the work of Ray Griffiths with a month long pop up shop. Ray is charming, talented, and has an Australian accent, which makes him pretty irresistible! He is the son of a shoemaker and grew up in the family business until he grew interested in jewelry as a teenager. He apprenticed at an old jewelry restoration house in Melbourne and the rest is history! Ray’s signature is his 18k gold crownwork, which he pairs with gorgeous gemstones like chrysoprase, moonstone, and tourmaline. We are partial to his tassel earrings and pendants, which are incredibly fun to wear. Ray is one of our newer designers at Fox's, and we’re sure you’ll love his jewelry as much as we do.
We’ve just received a new shipment of all the new blends from GemWater. If you haven’t already seen GemWater in our shop, it is a collection of personal glass water bottles. The natural vibrations from the gems purify and alkalize the water, and the ayurvedic properties of each gemstone promote different health benefits such as wellness, love, and motivation. These make wonderful gifts for yourself and others! Our favorite Item is the handblown glass wine decanter with amethyst wand. The ancient Greeks believe that amethyst prevented drunkenness. What it really does is smooth out the tannins in red wine. And it’s so beautiful you can leave it out as table décor.
Zoey just returned from the annual jewelry show in Las Vegas and brought back so many treasures from all of our favorite designers! Be sure you are following us on Instagram and Facebook to get the first glimpses as each new piece arrives at the store. We will be getting lots of one-of-a-kind alternative bridal from Todd Reed, colored gemstone pieces from Alex Sepkus, 22k gold from Arman Sarkisyan, stacking bands from Sethi Couture, and so much more!
We also ordered several pieces from Sethi Couture’s new collection. We had a wonderful trunk show last month with Prerna Sethi, half of the sister team behind Sethi Couture. The trunk show was all about stacking new Sethi bands with rings you already have to create a totally personalized look. The sisters’ philosophy is to “Elevate the Everyday” and their dainty, stackable, layerable rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are big favorites of ours at a price point that is perfect for treating yourself.
In order to make room for all of our new jewelry, we have put some lovely pieces in our sale case. The sale is in store only, so stop by to take a look at what treasure you might find. As always, we validate parking at the Olympic Parking Garage on the corner of 5th and Seneca. If you prefer to take Uber or Lyft, let us know after you arrive and we’ll email you a $15 credit toward your ride account.
