February has always been a favorite for me. I’m sure that’s why I’m in the jewelry business; I’m one of those people who loves LOVE! So, it comes as no shock that I love Valentine’s Day. For the whole month I try to arrange extra thoughtful somethings for myself and others. You can usually find me dressed in my favorite pinks, reds, hearts and anything symbolic of the season. I even have a ritual to make homemade pasta this time of year because it is a true labor of love and made with heart. However, I know that not everyone feels this way and some definitely need advice when selecting the perfect Valentine gift. I get it. There can be a bit of pressure around the holiday too. Well, I’m here to help. Whether it’s a new or well-seasoned relationship, or a gift to a friend or family, I have advice to get you started in the right direction.
The holiday is nearing and our team has assembled their favorite jewelry all under $1000. Some of their choices would even make great little stocking stuffers. There is much to choose from in the store that it was hard for everyone to only select a few. I hope you enjoy the read and it helps those who are looking for those last minute gifts. To see some of the items up close be sure to watch the Facebook video on Thursday, December 17 at 7pm.
Janet’s Picks – delicate everyday jewelry
Janet’s first selection is what we refer to as “diamonds by the yard” or a “station necklace”. The collection comes in many colors: rose, yellow and white gold as well as many lengths. They are available in bracelet as well as necklace. The price point varies on the size of diamonds but the bracelets begin at $480 and the necklaces begin at $840.
“I love both the diamond station bracelet and necklace. In fact, I just ordered a bracelet as a friend’s gift. They are perfectly delicate when worn alone and add just the right amount of sparkle and interest when layered. Because of the delicacy I like that they can be layered with mixed metals – yellow gold with a sliver cuff, etc…” – JanetContinue Reading

Too often in the jewelry business we speak about those that are in love and ready to make big commitments, like engagements and celebrating milestone anniversaries. However, many of our customers are independent women who are making self purchases, and some of those women are in relationships, but many are not. Our customers are the CEO’s of businesses, volunteers of local organizations, moms showing their daughters what it is like to be a confident woman and so much more. The point is, our customers are mainly women in diverse situations all with a common bond of individual style.
So, this Valentine’s we thought it might be interesting to share a different spin on love. Just like our customers have different stories, so do their dating experiences. We have seen and heard enough love stories to know many things work in finding the right person and if your heart is ready, there is someone out there for everyone. And if you choose to not find that person that’s ok too. Love comes in many different forms including things we are passionate about. Just be you and be happy.
But for those looking for a new way of dating, we interviewed someone we thought had a really interesting story and professional background in connecting love matches.
Meet Nicci Sprouse-Grosso.
She has a great love story of her own, years of executive matchmaking experience and a new venture with her husband which is a social club for singles. (more…)Continue Reading
Lovely Couture Cakes
This edition of “Argo Approved” we delve into the world of luxe! Who would have thought a wedding cake could be considered couture? Well, I’m the first to tell you the moment I saw the work of Scarlett Kilzer from Miam Cake it was obvious that this was not like any other cake I’d ever seen. From the sugar flowers that mind you look absolutely real to the handmade locust painted with edible gold, this was the work of an artist. Can you say, gobsmacked?!
