The Winner!!

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

The winner of the $5oo Holland’s Jewelers shopping spree is…….Rick  Morrison of Apex.  His guess was 692 and there were 700 hearts in the jar.  What did he get with his new “found” money?  Rick is a smart guy, he actually gave his winnings to JoAnn (his wife).  She chose a Beautiful Lorenzo Pendant set with a honey citrine and a pair of amethyst earrings.  Way to go RICK!!  There were over 140 guesses in all.  The lowest number guessed was 114 and the highest was 2,001,064.  The most original guess, when asked how many hearts are in the jar, was “All of them”.  Nice try.

Is it cold enough for ya?

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  I am convinced that I was born in the wrong state.  I love snow and cold weather, the colder the better.  This year, for the first time in several years, we had a significate amount of snow to fall in Apex.  I felt really bad about closing the store on Saturday but after a looooong weekend trapped at home with the kids, I was willing to risk a wreck just to reopen the store on Monday.  I hope, if you have kids, that you made some great memories this past weekend.  Some of our favorite family traditions are making snow cream, ice Pepsi’s and sledding.  With Valentines just a couple weeks from now, I’m praying that the snow will stay away.  We have some amazing jewelry in house that will “heat up” your sweetie.  Bracelets by Alwand Vahan,  beads from Zable and Amore & Baci and 40 new engagement mountings from “Valina”.   We have also added a new Silver and Gemstone line this month called Vyana.  Beautiful designs and bold gems set in Argentium silver.  If you dislike wearing silver because it tarnishes so easily, then this is the jewelry for you.  Argentium is a uniquely alloyed silver that will not tarnish, BONUS!!  We look forward to seeing you and don’t forget to sigh up for our $500.00 Holland Gift card.
