Greetings folks!! Hope you all had a relaxing Thanksgiving and enjoyed some time with family and friends. A very important event occurs between Thanksgiving and Christmas, often overlooked by most American. My birthday!! But not only is it just my day, I share this wonderful event with many other popular folks. Daryl Hannah, Julianne Moore and Ozzy Osbourne just to name a few. I have now OFFICIALLY worked at Holland’s Jewelers for half my life…..unbelieveable!! Growing old is a wonderful blessing especially when you are surrounded by people you love. Over the past 20 years at Holland’s Jewelers I have been blessed enough to help many couple with the selection of an engagement ring. Through the years these couples have made families of their own and now their children are coming to visit us at the jewelry store to get engagement rings for their sweetheart. Each day is really a gift from God, and the people that cross your path along the way are the real blessings in life. We at Holland’s wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and may you be blessed with many more.
Endless has arrived at Holland’s Jewelers. The Endless bracelets are hand made on supple Italian leather that has been hand stitched with silk thread. Each bracket has been dyed to the desired color throughout the entire piece. In other words the color you see on the outside has penetrated the bracelet to the core. Using only genuine gemstones, each charm has been hand set in silver and gold overlay, and polished to perfection. Each bracelet comes in single, double or triple wraps and 12 different colors. Now through December 1st we are offering a double wrap, endless bracelet of your choice and a single sterling silver charm, also of your choice, for only $69.00. Stop by and see us soon.

Spring can’t get here quickly enough for me. It has been one wild and crazy winter and I am debating on building an ark with all the rain we’ve been having. Today I noticed the tulips Ginny and I planted last fall poking through the mulch. They are always one of the first signs that the weather is soon going to take a turn for the better. Most of the new jewels we purchased at she Savannah Jewelry show have arrived and among them are lots and lots of new colored gemstones for the spring. We also have purchased several carats worth of loose gems that we would love to help you create the perfect ring, pendant or earring with. In my next post I’m going to show you how easy it is to design a personalized piece of jewelry for you, while you wait. Thanks! **Here is a random picture of my dog**
Michou calls its jewelry “Art to Wear,” and indeed each piece is a diminutive sculpture created with exquisite, one-of-a-kind details: Tiny, gleaming hinges that move between fluid elements of filigree, granulation, scrollwork, or reppousse; luscious 22K gold vermeil accents; vibrant faceted stones set against gleaming sterling silver, polished bright or brushed to a pearlescent finish.
Michou’s Art to Wear jewelry is perfect for every occasion, with dramatic pieces born of inspired vision and lovingly brought to life, suitable for both night and day. http://michoujewelry.com
Ginny and I have just settled in for a couple days of rest. We just want to thank you all for the love and support you have all given us this year. What a wild ride it has been!! In case you didn’t know, we suffered a break in just a couple days after Thanksgiving which left us stunned and in shock. But life goes on and we are still here. I’ve heard so many times in the last few weeks that it could have been worse and that is a definite truth!!! As I sit here thinking about our past year, I am so thankful for all our family/friends and all the blessings that God has given us. We are healthy and we are together and that is enough. Where ever you are and whoever you are with, be sure to be thankful for all the blessings you have been given.
In case you weren’t counting it’s only 30 days till Christmas. This year has flown by!! This Friday we have an awesome collection of Colore SG jewelry for you. We have a limited supple of our Amethyst set including a ring, earrings and matching pendant all set in Argentium silver for only $295.00. We typically offer this set for $400.00. It’s a no brainer for you guys! Hope to see you soon. Happy Thanksgiving!

We would love for you to stop by the store and enjoy some food with us as well as register to win some free jewelry and get a jump start on your Christmas list. Can’t wait to see you all!!
Over the past couple years I’ve been doing my homework on watches. We have been searching for a line of watches that would meet the high standards that we have in our private label “Holland” watches. The Reactor watch is all that and more. Created nearly 10 years ago with the ambition to be “The best build performance sports watch….period”, the designers improved on every aspect of a typical watch from the ground up. Here are just a few of highlights that only Reactor watches can boast. All cases are forged from solid marine grade type 316L stainless steel or titanium for the ultimate in strength and corrosion resistance. Bands are attached to the case with solid threaded screwbars providing at least 500% higher strength that most competing watches. Reactor’s exclusive screw crown system stays WATER TIGHT even when unscrewed. Casebacks are forged form the same high-grade material as the case for a perfect seal, even after a battery change. All dials and hands are coated eight times with Reactor’s own blend of Swiss Superluminova for the brightest lasting glow in the industry, up to 24 hours with only one minute of light exposure. Every Reactor watch is tested THREE times in water. The industry standard uses pressurized air test to determine a watched water tightness, which is not as reliable as water. Duh!! And finally, while most swiss watches uses a synthetic sapphire crystal which is highly scratch resistant but not shatter resistant, Reactor uses a K1, high ceramic glass which is scratch resistant and three times more shatter resistant. I can truthfully not praise the watch enough. There is absolutely no better made watch out there…period. We currently have approximately 25 watch in the store, with more arriving weekly or so. Come by and check them out or visit www.reactorwatch.com for more info and images.
Fall is quickly approaching and that means the introduction of new jewelry lines for the upcoming Christmas season. Our newest find comes from “Hagit Gorali” designs. Named for its creator, Hagit is passionate about capturing organic shapes and textures from nature to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Hagit’s love for drawing and sculpting is the core of her jewelry creations. After graduating from ‘Bezalel-Academy of Art and Design’ in Jerusalem, her life evolved into creating unique, wearable jewelry that looks like a work of art. Each ring, necklace and pendant embraces a colorful gemstones and/or pearl that has been hand made using sterling silver and karat gold combinations. Hagit has also introduced solid 14 and 18 karat designs that emphasizes the use of cabochons or faceted gemstones, diamonds, and lustrous pearls in an unusual way, creating beautiful, collectible treasure. The studio and factory, where the designs are developed and produced, is located on her family farm that is nestled in the countryside of Israel. Beautiful, comfortable, wearable, original are just a few words to describe this collection from Higit Gorali. For more information check out: www.hagitgorali.com
