  • Oscar is coming.

    In fact, he's kind of already here. When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences made the decision to bring tradition back to our favorite bronze gentleman last year, they selected the Hudson Valley based Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry to be the company to perform the original process of lost wax cast bronze. Three months of craftsmanship went into the new look, a mix of 1928 and the sleek, modern version of himself. Resplendent in his gold-plating, Oscar stands 13 and a half inches tall and weighs about the size of a newborn, eight and a half pounds. Fitting, as 50 esteemed and accomplished people are set to receive these babies this weekend.




  • Out with the old...

    Posted on: February 16, 2016

    ... in with the new? Maybe!


    There are many reasons to consider selling pieces from within your jewelry box. You might have outgrown a certain look. You might have never loved it in the first place, but felt disloyal thinking so when you opened the box at Christmas.

    Jewelry has history, memories -good, bad and otherwise. Gifts retain their emotional relationship between giver and recipient. Items left after a loved one passes are often a memento of the person now gone. That necklace from an ex most likely will leave you feeling differently than the pearls your parents presented you with at graduation. Aunt Sally (may she rest in peace) may have set aside her favorite pin, hoping you, her favorite niece would love it as she did. You don't.

    Trading in, and sometimes up(!), can allow you to recapture the value of an item otherwise languishing in a safety deposit box, safe, treasure chest or shoe box beneath the bed (no judgement, but you know who you are). Turning Aunt Sally's (h i d e o u s) pin into a pendant you love by trading it in will make you smile and lovely remember your aunt, which is what she really wanted in the first place. Not only is this not disloyal, it's two fold- your newly acquired necklace will bring you happiness annnnnnd, that pin? Someone else is sure to fall for it as she did, thereby giving it a new life, outside the shoe box (again, no judgement).

    The aforementioned necklace from what's-his-face? Why hang on to it at all. It only makes you angry when you see it anyway. As Elsa says, "Let it go". Well, technically, I guess Elsa says "Let it gooooooooooooooooo, let it gooooooooo!" We concur. Let. It. Go. Get yourself something fabulous that he wouldn't have known you well enough to buy at the time and every time you wear it, you can think of just how lucky you are now- to be rid of him and that necklace.

    Zimmer Brothers Jewelers has been transforming unworn, unwanted, unwearable pieces as long as any of us can remember. Presently, our Estate Department is paying more than we ever have before. Feel free to drop by either of our locations with jewelry, sterling silver flatware and holloware, gold and silver coins and the like. Our buyer will be delighted to  look them over and perhaps, make you an offer you won't be able to refuse. No appointment is necessary, though calling prior to be sure the buyer is in is advised.

  • Nice aim, Cupid! Now what?

    Direct hit! You've been struck by his arrow!

Either way, you can find the perfect something for your sweetheart at both Zimmer Brothers Jewelry locations. Yes, chocolate and flowers will make her smile, but when she sees a package in our signature wrapping, she'll be delighted!

  • My Forever Valentines

    Posted on: February 1, 2016

    Remember when you were in (young) love and you abandoned your best girl pals for any opportunity to hang out with what you truly believed was the love of your life? I don't know about you, but my mother would have none of it. "They were there before him and they'll be there after him." What? After him? I'm going to m a r r y this guy. I'll have plenty of time to hang out with my friends when they're my bridesmaids and we're in the throes of planning every last detail of my amazing wedding. Plus, the showers and bachelorette weekend.


    Guess who was right? Again. (I hope she isn't reading this.)

    Those very same girls are the ones who let me cry cry cry when we broke up. They let me obsess and over analyze details of conversations for w e e k s. They brought over ice cream and tidbits of gossip about his new girlfriend.

    They are the ones I saw Thanksgiving eve all through college, picking up right where we left off.

    They are the people who planned my 21st birthday. Not that any of us remember much.

    They are the girls who really did become bridesmaids. A few boyfriends later. They planned the shower, they wore the dresses, they bought matching shoes and the day of, they joined me in the ladies' room and held my dress up as needed.

    They are the ones I reach to call first. They still let me cry, and obsess and over analyze e v e r y t h i n g.

    Because, love.

    This year, I am going to celebrate those friendships with a little valentine's reminder of how much they mean to me.


    These DOGEARED necklaces are the perfect sentiment (& price point!) for my ladies. The selection is such that each one is sure to know it was picked just for her.



    I love these Thomas Sabo bracelets. My #soulsisters will be reminded all day how thankful I am to have them in my world.


    Last, but never, ever least, my very bestie will love her new Mighty Purse wristlet. Not only will she have phone, credit cards, keys and lippy handy, she'll always have enough phone battery for whatever life throws 'our' way.
