Gold and Platinum, neck and neck!

Hey folks, now is as good a time as ever to sell your broken and unwanted gold jewelry items.  Gold has been holding steady at close to $1600 and ounce on the metal market while platinum has been hovering right above that at just under $1610 per ounce.  It's crazy, platinum used to be triple the cost of gold.  My how things have changed.  Come in to day to consult with us about selling your old gold!

Jesse's Granddaughter helps first lady, Michelle Obama, celebrate the 2nd anniversary of her "Let's Move!" initiative.

Jesse's Granddaughter helps first lady, Michelle Obama, celebrate the 2nd anniversary of her "Let's Move!" initiative.

Jesse's Granddaughter helps first lady, Michelle Obama, celebrate the 2nd anniversary of her "Let's Move!"
initiative at Disney's Wide World of Sports at the DIsney World Resort in Orlando,Florida.
On February 11, 2012 Jesse the Jeweler's Granddaughter, Sofia, met First Lady Michelle Obama and danced
the platypus walk on stage with her to celebrate the second anniversary of the Let's Move! initiative. What a wonderful
accomplishment! This is a great honor for Miss Sofie because very few participants were selected to take part!

The kicker for Jesse the Jeweler is that Sofie's parents arranged for her to show the First Lady the custom made
cross pendant that Jesse made for her. Sofia mentioned that her Grandpa Jesse is a jeweler in Florida and that he
made the pendant for her. Luckily, Sofie's parents were actually able to snap a few pictures of the conversation among
other things. Jesse's birthday was just around a month after the event so they had a few of the photographs enlarged
and framed for Jesse to proudly display in the jewelry store.

To follow are a few pictures, the first picture is Sofie and the First Lady in a high five, the next two are of Sofie telling
the First Lady all about her necklace and the last is Sofia on stage with the First Lady during the platypus walk dance.
There is also a video of the event embedded below which shows Sofie dancing and the First Lady speaking about her
the Let's Move initiative.

Beads, Beads, Beads!

Everybody knows Italian Murano Glass and Sterling Silver beads are so very popular.  For nearly a decade glass and silver beads and bracelets have been growing in popularity.  While a good portion of the jewelery industry wrote this off as a fad that would quickly give way to the next big thing, most skeptics are now embracing the product lines.  They are affordable for every budget and are unique to each and every bead lover.  Beads are not going anywhere because they have the ability to follow trends on their own instead of being a trend.  As new styles come an go, these wonderful little shape-shifters have adaptability.  Black and white is in this year? Let's make a new line of monochromatic beads?  Natural materials are all the rage?  Find lots to choose from in a range of materials from gemstones, polished natural rock and other types of minerals to suit any style or flavor.

With the holiday season in full swing, Jesse the Jeweler's flagship bead company, Reflection Beads, has tons of festive options to choose from.  Visit to link to their website.  Our website will also soon be offering a wide selection of reflection beads available for purchase but for now, link to to to veiw the Reflection Beads website.  If you find anything you like, be sure to let us know which style numbers and we can order them for you at the very best price! Keep in mind, we currently have a smaller collection of Kera beads available for purchase directly from our website with over 120 styles to choose from.  Jesse the Jeweler also designs custom Space and Space Shuttle beads which make great gifts!  If you have an idea you would like us to turn into a custom bead, just let us know because we do that too!

Silver and...Black???

You've probably noticed trends in fashion leaning towards a revival of  black & white and monochrome grey styling but this time, it's a little less trash and a lot more panache.  This chromatic comeback has spilled over on to the jewelry industry and it is looking good!  The emergence of alternative metals over the last decade  has paved the way for  these designs and we expect to see much more coming our way.  Alt metals such as tungsten carbide and titanium, to name a few, have made consumers a lot more comfortable with the look which we think has laid the ground work for this craze.  Color contrast is always en vogue and we expect to see the trend in black & white diamonds to continue as well.

  Varying shades of sterling silver are combined to give a gradient effect to these collections.  Bright white rhodium finished sterling silver, black rhodium finished sterling for a grey finish and dark black ruthenium finished sterling give these pieces their flair.  Don't be surprised if you see more black gemstones set in white metal and white gems set in grey or "blackened" sterling silver.  These pieces are even being combined with high-karat yellow gold which looks amazing by the way.  That being said, ladies find these styles to be extremely versatile and can be worn every day and with nearly every wardrobe choice!  If you are interested in seeing more, check us out at or stop by our store and browse through our catalogs.
