Welcome, Stuart Hobbs, for our Art at Argo’s current exhibit, All of the Light is One! Local This UA resident and painter brings us his thoughtful and poetic abstract acrylic paintings in bold and bright colors. With our colored gemstone event in full swing and the vibrant days of summer just ahead, his works make a great addition to our showroom. We love the strong sense of story each piece conveys through Stuart’s textural layering and patterning of color. We invite you to visit the showroom to see the contemplative world he has created in each of his paintings. They can be viewed in our showroom from May 14-August 13.Continue Reading
At Argo & Lehne we are finishing this month and starting next with an emphasis on self care, starting here – in the store! I suppose it is a practice what you preach scenario. 😉
With the past two years being a complete whirlwind, the pandemic has taught us to do business in many ways that we were previously unaccustomed. We have weathered the storms of short staffing, felt the pressure of hiring difficulties, have worked endless hours and through it all we have had a steadfast team that makes things happen – our graceful swans with hardworking feet underwater propelling our business forward.Continue Reading
More than ever we want to break out of the winter/pandemic hibernation rut and jump into spring! And many are taking that step forward in bright looks using color and metal while staying steadfast to natural elements and softer styles. All this isolation has really pulled us all into a simpler way of being. Fashion has gone au naturale but by no means does that mean we aren’t having fun! (more…)Continue Reading

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Green is the color of the day – the wearing of the green, shamrocks, green beer, a river of green, etc. I’m not Irish, but after visiting Ireland a few years ago, I feel a kinship with and affection for that beautiful country and its people, and a new appreciation for their national holiday. And I’m wearing green!
“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”

Each March, we highlight a specific non-profit and/or organization that focuses on helping women in our community. This began from recognizing International Women’s Day (March 8) and feeling passionate about taking the time to make a small dent in helping women here in our community. We have had the privilege of working with so many wonderful people from organizations such as Freedom A La Carte – a unique catering company who employees and helps survivors of human trafficking, LSS-Choices for Victims of Domestic Violence, Amethyst – an Alvis recovery program for local women and their families and so many more!
This March we are focusing on self-care! Oh, how we need it! With the extra stress of the pandemic and everything else going on in each of our lives it seems the perfect time to reflect on a subject matter that has affected so many at some point, anxiety and depression. All month long we will be donating to ADAA (Anxiety and Depression Association of America) with each in-stock jewelry purchase.
Making an Impact
This March make your purchase count! During the entire month, all in-stock jewelry purchases will benefit Anxiety and Depression Association of America! We will donate 10% of the purchase price back to the cause. Just mention ADAA at checkout or with your salesperson. (more…)Continue Reading
Join us in celebrating International Women’s Day! Ladies, this is our time to shine, recognize each other and maybe even win a gorgeous ring and a luxe spa package from Skin & Sugar!
Each March, we make it our mission to give back to causes that resonate with us and our clients. This March we are focusing on self-care! Oh how we all need it! With the extra stress of the pandemic and everything else going on in each of our lives it seems the perfect time to reflect on a subject matter that has affected us all at some point, anxiety and depression. All month long we will be donating 10% of the purchase price to ADAA (Anxiety and Depression Association of America) with each jewelry purchase. Just mention the cause at checkout online or with an A&L sales associate. To learn more, click here.
In addition, we have partnered with the local female owned spa, Skin and Sugar. They have two locations – Upper Arlington and Powell. We absolutely love their products and services and are so pleased that together we can raise awareness of the importance of self care. When we are depleted, it’s impossible to give ourselves to other responsibilities, projects, friends, family, etc.. We can always make excuses as to why we can’t find the time but nothing is as important as taking care of yourself. (more…)Continue Reading
What better time than Valentine’s Day to begin our new and rose inspired exhibit, “Flourish”?! We couldn’t be more proud of our very own, Design Liaison & Sales Associate, Sarah Peters. Sarah began working at Argo & Lehne in May of last year. She was a great fit with her gentle and kind nature matched with her love of fashion and jewelry. It’s no surprise she was drawn to many of our one of a kind pieces and our inclination for the arts. As an artist herself and a Upper Arlington resident she was drawn to the idea of one day having her own Art at Argo’s show. Well, in the past month or so we convinced her that the time was right!
Jewelry has always been rich in symbolism. What better way to express your feelings this Valentine’s Day than a unique vintage gift for your beloved? If you appreciate the romance of the past, you most certainly will love these beautiful gifts of affection.
The charming and whimsical butterfly has always captured our imagination, often symbolizing freedom, love and the rebirth of the soul. The feng shui tradition of China uses it to encourage success in love and romance. Jade is thought to promote luck, trust, fidelity and maturity in love relationships. What a combination for this adorable vintage butterfly pendant with 11 carats of nephrite jade accented by 2 diamonds!
