  • A Little Something for Myself

    Posted on: September 18, 2016



    Some of you may remember from last week's blog post, I am so sad that summer is (almost) over. I don't hate Fall, per se, I just really like the warmer season. This time of year, as the nights come early, I get a little wistful.

    Ok. Fine. A lot wistful.

    Typically, I just roll with it. By the time the leaves are ablaze with color, I'm mostly over myself and ready to enjoy some apple cider donuts and a pumpkin chai latte while wearing Uggs with yoga pants and my favorite flannel button down. This year, I plan to cut those blues off at the pass and buy myself a little sunshine to ease the blow of the season change.

    But what, exactly? The possibilities are, budget withstanding, endless.

    I mean, come on! I work in a jewelry store and am, obviously, s u r r o u n d e d  with gorgeous things that I want. I have to narrow down the list. First thing I can do to pare down my options is remove the necklaces and allllll the earrings I covet. This piece, I want to be able to see at all times, without the aid of the mirror. The whole point is to cheer myself up so I need to be able to look down and ta! da! instant happy!

    So, a bracelet. Or, a ring. Hmmmmmmm.

    This is far harder than I originally anticipated.

    A ring. That's the exact thing I want. Definitely, a ring.

    So, of course, I'll be getting a bracelet. Decision making is soooo not my thing.

    An everyday, special to me, bracelet. Sterling Silver. In my wasn't planning on buying anything budget.

    Ed. Levin.

    Back to endless possibilities. HELP!

    No, really. Help.

    Here are the four I managed to narrow the, literally, 100s of options down to.


    The Sterling Silver Wave. Such an obvious choice, right? It's a wave.

    ed-levin-rendezvousExcept that then I thought of this. The Rendezvous. That pearl, it is so very sun like.

    ed-levin-50thOr, this. The 50th Anniversary Signature bracelet. With a rose gold heart. Because, I truly adore summer.

    ed-levin-gem-eleganceGem Elegance.  Just because I love it. and it's fluidity is so very wave like.


    Seriously. THIS should be my biggest problem in life. Self selecting a gift for myself. But, in the spirit of fun, I am going to ask for help all the same. Which do YOU think I need to pull me from my Fall-induced funk?!

  • Goodbye Summer, Hello Sparkle... I mean, Fall

    Posted on: September 10, 2016

    Goodbye beach days, pool afternoons and lazy picnics.

    Goodbye long days, sunshine and green as far as the eye can see.

    Goodbye ocean, chlorine and so, much, sunblock. At least your jewelry can rejoice in the end of the season many of us mourn. (Me, I mourn summer. Already. Big time.) Celebrate the coming Fall by treating your favorite pieces to a little spa day at either Zimmer Brothers Jewelers in Poughkeepsie or the Boutique in Rhinebeck. Your ring can't speak but if it could, it would ask for a massage (we'll check your stones, prongs and setting over to be sure all is as it should be) and a dip in the Jacuzzi (a hot, bubbling soak in the cleanser-rich waters of our Ultrasonic Cleaner). A little sauna time slash steam clean and your jewelry will not only be extra gorgeous, it'll be happy! Let's be real here, if anything deserves a little happiness it's the sparkle that makes you feel that way!


    Be sure to check your email for a coupon entitling you to a complimentary jar of jewelry cleaner to keep your jewelry happy in between 'spa' visits at the store. Didn't get one? Email us at to be added to our mailing list. Your jewelry will thank you for it- both the pieces you already love, and those destined to be in your life.

    Hello apple picking, pie baking and pumpkin spice everything.

    Hello cardigans, leaf peeping and bonfires on cool nights.

    Hello Fall.
