Meigs 57th Anniversary Sale! April 28 – May 13

 

The year 1960 seems like such a long time ago, 57 years to be exact.  It’s hard to believe John F. Kennedy was our President and the average cost to buy a home here in America was just over $2500. Times have certainly changed over the years but the principals of trust and integrity that Meigs Jewelry was built upon 57 years ago are still the foundation that we pride ourselves on today.

The confidence that you, our valued jewelry family, has placed in us over the years is our biggest compliment.  To have the honor of being trusted by families in some instances over three generations is our greatest honor and for that, we are forever grateful.

In celebration, we are inviting all of you to come in and sign up for our $1,000 gift card give-a-way and of course, there is no purchase required.  While you are here we hope that enjoy our signature drink, the infamous “White Diamond.”  Whether it’s the non-alcohol version or the one that has a little something extra, they pair wonderfully well with our fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.  Yum!

Another way to win our grand prize is sharing with us your own personal photos.  We do love nostalgia and what better way to reminisce the years than by sharing a special picture that comes to mind when you think of Meigs Jewelry!  For each picture that you post on Facebook and tag us in, you will receive an additional entry to our special give-a-way drawing.

So stop in to see us and post those pictures to win BIG! We are proud to have been part of this awesome community over the past 57 years and look forward to many more!

“I design for the woman who is hip and stylish, but not trendy; someone who is bold, yet still sophisticated,” says Briana – owner of Tat2 Designs. The LA based company uses two-tone overlays of 24 karat gold and antiqued silver accented by earth tone stones that add a hint of sparkle. Tat2 adds a new flair to her existing jewelry and starts at $100

Freida Rothman

This Brooklyn based designer knows that jewelry industry inside and out. Freida’s family has been in the trade for several generations so it was a natural fit for her to create her own line. Sterling silver overlaid in 14 karat yellow gold and black rhodium with a matte finish gives each piece an indefinable characteristic. With prices ranging from $90-$875 there’s something for everybody in Freida Rothman.

Five Things to Know BEFORE You Get Engaged

With the holidays coming up, it’s the season for families and friends to gather together. With so many loved ones together, it also makes it the perfect time to get engaged! It’s such an exciting moment and while your love is the main focus, you can’t help but want your ring to also steal the show!

I’m a part of hundreds of couples’ engagements every year with the help of Meigs Jewelry. And I’m also a part of all too many engagement ring blunders that I think are highly preventable. Through my years of engagement ring expertise, I’ve compiled a list of five things I want you to know before you get engaged!

You can’t try on your Pinterest board

Have you ever seen a dress in the store that you absolutely love so much that you dash to the register and buy it without even trying it on? I mean, why would you? It’s beautiful and gorgeous and the color is to die for!! Then you get home… and it looks like a potato sack hanging on you… And you go back to the store in a retail walk of shame to return the dress that deceivingly did you wrong. If only you had tried it on! Pinterest is a great resource to do some pre-shopping for a ring. There are literally infinite options that you can spend hours sifting through. But while options are limitless, there are limits to what Pinterest can do. You can’t physically try on the things that you pin… So come in and try them on, let us size your finger, and make a wish list of your absolute favorite rings.

More than One Day to Make your Dream Ring

There are many instances where the engagement ring of your dreams can walk out the door with your soon-to-be fiancé. But there are also just as many instances where the ring may take more time to create! All rings in the showroom are in a “stock size”. Majority of designers’ stock size is a 6.5. If your finger size is any more than one size smaller or larger, we recommend that we let the designers make the ring to specially fit your finger. Sizing over one size typically jeopardizes the integrity of any accent or side stones on the ring. There are also many times that you want a customized touch to your ring. Maybe it needs to be rose gold, be made to fit a certain size diamond, or something made completely custom. These things take time, so be sure to take that into consideration. The average time frame for these types of things is four to six weeks. I can promise you it will be worth the wait!

There’s more than 4 Cs

If you have done any research on diamonds, I can guarantee you’ve come across the “4 Cs” – cut, carat, color, and clarity. But there are two more very important Cs that don’t get talk about too often. There’s another cut that you need to know about. This is the cut regarding how a jeweler cuts a rough diamond into the diamond that you see in a ring. If it is cut too tall or too shallow, the light can’t reflect back out and give you a sparkly diamond. If a diamond is cut correctly you will be blown away by the brilliance of the stone. The last C that you may have heard about, but not fully understand are Certificates. Many diamonds are certified by different entities stating what the color and clarity are, as well as other diamond grading factors. But did you know that legally a diamond’s certificate can be incorrect by up to two grades? Our most trusted diamond grader is the GIA, Gemological Institute of America. They are known for being spot on and giving honest certificates. Our owner, Todd Mutzig, is certified by the GIA and makes sure all diamonds grades match accordingly to their diamond!

Where is your jeweler?

While every jewelry store has jewelry, not every store has a jeweler! Meigs Jewelry is lucky enough to have two in-store jewelers. So what happens if you need your ring repaired and the store doesn’t have a jeweler on site? Well, the store is in partnership with an outside jeweler that picks the repairs up weekly or so. They are then taken to an outside location where thousands of other repairs form multiple stores are also taken. That’s sounds like a lot of opportunities for jewelry to be lost, stolen, or mixed up to me! Did I mention that they turn around time is several weeks, sometimes months… We guarantee all of our repairs in one week!

 

Something old, something new, something…?

Borrowed! And we can even make it something blue if you desire! With every engagement ring purchased at Meigs Jewelry you become eligible to be a part of our Something Borrowed program. For your wedding day, we invite you to choose a piece of jewelry valued up to $10,000 to make your big day extra special. Now, isn’t that something to get excited about?! It’s one of the biggest perks of getting your ring at Meigs Jewelry
