Happy July! Summer is a great time to be in Seattle. Pike Place Market is bursting with flowers, the Fairmont's gorgeous new restaurant The George is open, and we are here Tuesday through Saturday with beautiful jewelry! You can make an appointment to see us in person, shop online, or text us at our main number (206.623.2528).

Join us for our Samantha Louise Trunk Show on July 29th - 30th! Samantha will be making a personal appearance on both days to show off her entire collection, including these unique and completely customizable bands in her signature satin-finish gold. We love her ear cuffs, bracelets, necklaces, stacking bands, and engagement rings too! 

Yellow gold and emerald rings and turquoise ring

July babies have one of our favorite birthstones - the incredibly juicy ruby! Rubies symbolize love, energy, passion, and a zest for life. Along with sapphires, they score a 9 out of 10 on the Moh's scale of hardness, making them a wonderful gemstone to use for an engagement ring or wedding band. Rubies are also the traditional gift for a 40th wedding anniversary.

Zoey and Justine are back from their buying trip to Las Vegas, and new one-of-a-kind jewelry is already starting to roll in! Our first stop is always Alex Sepkus so we get first pick. We fell in love with this faceted Tahitian pearl and diamond necklace. It's not too early to shop for the holidays, because when these pieces are gone they're gone!

One of the most fun things we bought in Las Vegas was a collection of rainbow sapphire stacking rings from Sethi Couture. We bought the whole set of nine different styles, and they are already here! Shop in-store or online. We will be donating 5% of the proceeds of each sale to the Trevor Project.

We also brought back some spectacular new pieces from Single Stone! We are especially excited about the Evren long 18k gold chain with a charm holder at the end. We got the Ophelia moon charm with antique old mine and old European cut diamonds, and the Kinsley pave diamond star pendant.

We had such a hard time deciding what to get from Arman Sarkisyan. His jewelry always makes us swoon! We bought lovely hand-engraved lockets with sapphires, tourmaline, and opal. He generously sent us even more jewelry for our cases, including our favorite bracelet that he has ever made! Text or email for photos, or just stop by.

Join us for our first ever Rene Escobar Trunk Show and personal appearance, June 24-25! Rene will be here with his entire collection of unisex bracelets, rings, necklaces, and more. He uses a mix of sterling silver and gold, so the price point is perfect for treating yourself. Don't miss the chance to meet him in person, we are sure you will love him as much as we do!

Pearls are a timeless classic, perfect for celebrating a graduation, wedding, or professional accomplishment. They are also the traditional birthstone for June! Pearls have been treasured since ancient times, and never go out of style. We love how Alex Sepkus puts a unique and unexpected spin on them with gorgeous interchangeable clasps.

Lucky June babies actually have three birthstones: pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone. Alexandrite is a rare color-change gemstone. We have a beautiful one-of-a-kind Candy ring from Alex Sepkus featuring alexandrite and sapphire. Moonstone is a mystical gem that glows like its namesake. We love the moonstone gem tab by Lauren Newton.

Watches are a great gift for all of June's special occasions. We have a great selection of Nomos Glashutte watches right now, which is quite a feat with almost all of their watches on a 6-10 month backorder. The new Club Campus in Deep Pink very nearly ended up on Zoey's wrist instead of in the case!

If you are looking for an anniversary or wedding gift, Single Stone never fails to please with classic essentials like stud earrings, pendants, and bracelets. They are best known for their beautiful and sustainable antique and vintage diamonds in handmade gold settings. We love them for engagement rings and wedding set updates too!

Save the date for our Samantha Louise Trunk Show and personal appearance July 29-30! Samantha was such a hit when she was here last summer, we asked her to come again! Her satin-finish gold is so pretty for everyday, especially with her signature pops of emerald, turquoise, and opal.

We have added Affirm financing to our website! Each item now shows what the monthly payment would be to buy now and pay over time. These gorgeous Rene Escobar bangles are as low as $95 per month when you purchase with Affirm. We also have a Fox's credit card through the American Gem Society, apply in store only.

Vegas Day 3

Day 3 in Las Vegas starts out with a glowing golden circle in the sky, and glowing golden circles at Gurhan in the form of these stunning 24k gold hammered disc earrings.

Gurhan is best known for his mastery of pure 24k gold, but several years back, he started mixing in sterling silver, and the result was incredibly fun and versatile. Below, Zoey stacks a Gurhan bracelet made of sterling silver, 24k gold, druzy quartz, and onyx with her platinum link Alex Sepkus bracelet.

Gurhan also does stunning work with gemstones, particularly opals. This incredible necklace of opal, kyanite, blue topaz, and moss aqua set in 24k gold came home to Seattle with us!

The next stop is at Harry Kotlar, another 3rd generation family-owned business like Fox's. Kotlar is best known for their signature - and incredibly beautiful - Kotlar cushion diamond, but this lovely oval really caught our eye.

Kotlar is also known for their artisan pave and meticulous craftsmanship. So many engagement rings to choose from!

We can't resist snapping a few pictures to remember these classic pendants by when we are back home.

Our last appointment of the day is with our friend Ray Griffiths. We had the pleasure of having Ray at our store a few months ago, and he is such a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. He couldn't resist getting silly with Zoey's baby bump!

We couldn't resist this row of beautiful blues! Aren't the tassels fun?

We love all of Ray's work, but turquoise mixed with his signature 18k yellow gold crownwork is such an eye-catching combination.

The last event of the day is the Couture awards, to honor the pieces of jewelry from the show that are particularly noteworthy in design and workmanship.

We head home early to compare notes and rest up for our last day at the show.

Vegas Day 2

Rise and shine! It's Day 2 of the Couture show in Las Vegas. Day 2 is always much harder to wake up for than Day 1, because our feet always hurt from the day before! Chai likes to start his day with a dip in the Wynn Hotel's beautiful pool.

Our first appointment of the day is with Mark Patterson. Mark's engagement rings and bands are the epitome of classic, timeless bridal jewelry. We have been carrying his jewelry for over 20 years, and it just doesn't go out of style.

Mark's signature is that all of his engagement rings are made so that the wedding band fits perfectly flush with the engagement ring. Zoey loves his channel-set baguette setting so much that she chose it for her engagement ring!

Our second stop of the day is at Kwiat. We feel a kinship with Kwiat because they are a third generation family owned business, just like us. Kwiat is also known for their stunning ideal cut diamonds. Their jewelry is all handmade in New York City, and their signature is simple, elegant designs that make the diamonds appear to be floating.

Kwiat always has extremely special and rare diamonds to show us, and this year we got to see this natural fancy intense purple-pink diamond!

Our last stop of the day is at Arman Sarkisyan. Arman and his wife, Louiza, are both artists in their own right, and their booth is always decorated beautifully.

This year, there were gorgeous canvases painted by Louiza, still lifes of jewelry in domed apothecary jars, and vases of lush peonies.

We first discovered Arman at Couture four years ago and still swoon over his whimsical, intricate jewelry in 22k gold and oxidized silver. This year, our favorite piece was this lovely bird ring.

That evening, we enjoyed a lovely dinner at Mizumi, one of the restaurants at the Wynn Hotel. Mizumi specializes in award-winning Japanese cuisine and looks out over private Japanese gardens, a koi pond, and a 90-foot waterfall.
