  • Summer Jewelry Safety Tips From David's LTD

    Summer is here and it brings wonderful fun involving all things wet and wonderful! Yet just as the sun can scorch your skin, summer can do some serious damage to your jewelry if you aren’t careful. Here are some tips for keeping your jewelry and your summer radiant.

    Tip # 1: Don’t Take Your Engagement Ring Off

    This was my grandmother’s all time favorite engagement ring tip. She used to say, “No one loses their ring when it’s on their finger.” Summer is a time when you are headed to the beach, then to the club, out for tennis and then to dinner. This is a recipe for a fun filled summer day and also for ring disaster. If your engagement ring isn’t going to play as hard as you are, it’s time to plan. A little planning now can save you a ton of heart ache later. You can either wear your ring, leave your ring at home or you can plan a safe place on your mobile person- such as in a secure zip location in your purse or in a locked compartment of your car. Be aware that the “safe” mobile location can only be as safe as the location itself. For example, placing your ring in your purse in an unlocked locker at the pool is not a safe location. Secondly, wherever your safe location is- make it a habit to always use it. This way you will develop a habit of using this special place for your ring whenever it is not on your finger.

    Tip #2: Keep your Jewelry Out of Salt, Chlorine and Summer Heat

     

    Does your summer vacation involve basking in the water for hours at a time? Pay attention to this section if you are a water lover. Your jewelry is probably being exposed to either chlorine or high concentrations of salt and both can permanently damage your jewelry.

    In the hot summer heat, pools and the ocean provide welcome relief. Unfortunately, both have harsh contents that can be harmful to precious jewelry. Pool water has chlorine which over time can disintegrate gold. If you were to put a gold ring in direct bleach, it can disintegrate within minutes of exposure. The higher the karat of the gold, the longer it takes for the exposure to cause serious damage.

    Salt water has extremely high levels of salt and minerals which can erode soldered jewelry joints. This can lead to very serious issues. Gemstones can come lose from their mountings and fragile pieces may even break. In some cases, pitting can occur, leaving a rough texture on the surface of the piece.

    The summer season brings such great styles to wear with our jewelry and we all love the sun, but try not to wear your precious metals in the water this season, and if you forget, give them a thorough rinse afterwards to get rid of any unwanted chemicals and salts.

    Summer Jewelry Tip #3: Let the Lotion Dry

     

    Summer sunscreen and lotions are a must for most women. Unfortunately, lotions are not our jewelry’s best friend. Hand lotion and especially sunscreen can build up on the surface of your jewelry making your pieces look dull and lifeless. Getting the grease out of the small delicate spaces in jewelry is also a real chore.

    ring detailShop here > Lorelei Diamond Interlocking Ring

    Instead, get in the habit of using lotions in the evening after you have taken your jewelry off. In the morning put on your sunscreen first thing and then wait 5-10 minutes before putting on your jewelry. You will see a difference in the sparkle of your favorite pieces.

  • Happy Summer Days! New Heather B. Moore Pieces at David’s LTD Jewelers

    The jewelry by designer Heather B. Moore is always changing, always developing, and every year her designs seem to become more interesting. Fresh and organic, Heather’s charms reflect the passion and love she has for both her art and her children. Heather B. Moore’s new designs are in at David’ LTD Jewelers but we can’t promise that they will last.

    New Heather Moore Designs

    Heather B Moore: Charming

    Heather B. Moore’s story is an interesting one. She started making her signature stamped metal charms for herself. Heather started stamping small sayings on pieces of metal when she was 13 years old after she acquired her first stamp set at a garage sale. Using this set, Heather stamped a small silver plaque that she kept in her wallet. The plaque read, ‘I said to my sister and she said to me: ‘Come, let’s play laughter together.’”

    As Heather’s art career developed, she became a glass blower and she started making small pieces of enamel jewelry. Heather gained acclaim for her enamel and silver line and it earned her the Rising Star Award in 2000 from JCK. However, these pieces were not to become her calling card.

    Her signature charms were developed for herself with the names of her children on them. Wearing the charms on a necklace around her neck, her children would play with them, looking for the charm that held their name. Heather wore this necklace to a show where she was selling her enamel jewelry and instead of asking about the jewelry she was selling, customers kept asking her if she sold the charms on the necklace around her neck. This was in 2004. Heather went home, changed her focus and the rest is history.

    The Quality of Heather B. Moore Jewelry

    There are many different personalized charms in the jewelry market today but almost none of them use the quality craftsmanship and materials that are the hallmark of this jewelry line. Heather’s placement of characters and the freehand stamping set this collection apart. The sayings and words are calligraphy rather than commercial lettering and this is what draws the eye in. When you look at the designs, your eye will see something you weren’t expecting and this encourages you to look further. The more you look at Heather B. Moore Jewelry, the more you will see and appreciate the simple little surprises.

  • Watch Out for Dad This Father’s Day: Shinola, the American Watch for Dad

    Dads spend most of their time watching out for everyone else. Dads take care of the family, cut the grass, coach the kids in soccer and make sure that the house is still standing after the basement floods. American dads do it all. This Father’s Day show Dad you care with a special gift, a Shinola watch from David’s LTD Jewelers in Charlotte, NC. This is a timepiece that matches the can do attitude of American men.

    The Shinola Watch Company and the Revival of Detroit

    The Shinola Watch Company in Detroit, Michigan builds Shinola watches. Started in 2011 by Tom Kartsotis, one of the founders of Fossil, Shinola was established on the idea that it was time for there to be an excellent American built watch. In the 1960s, Japanese movements drove nearly all of the world’s watchmakers except for a few tenacious Swiss companies out of business. Until the birth of Shinola,  it has been impossible to buy a high-end American-built watch.

    Detroit, with its history of production and incentives for new businesses, appealed to Kartsotis, and in 2011 Shinola started building watches and bicycles in Detroit. Their first run of watches sold out in a week. Today, Shinola employs about 500 employees in their Detroit factory and every single watch is built in Detroit. The company invests quality training in their employees and supports additional American companies through their purchase of locally made components. Although a few of the parts in their watches still come from overseas, the goal of the company is to eventually make every single component themselves. Every year Shinola is able to add American-built items to their watches and grow their business. The company is located within the College of Creative Studies on the fifth floor of the Alfred A. Taubman Building in Detroit, Michigan in a space previously used as an automobile research lab.

    Shinola Watches: Quality Timepieces Built to Last

    Every Shinola watch comes with a lifetime guarantee. These are beautiful, durable, quality timepieces. Men can be particularly hard on watches so this type of guarantee is exceptional. Shinola watches include precise quartz movements and beautiful leather bands, most of which are made in Chicago’s Horween Leather Tannery. The process used to make the leather is a multi-month tanning process that produces strong, flexible and beautiful leather. Every watch is also water resistant up to 165 ft. underwater.

    The styling of Shinola watches sets them apart from other watches available today. The proportions are amazing. They are sleek without being feminine or precious. The luminous dials are traditional, yet easy to read. Shinola faces are available in beautiful colors including a rich green and a fabulous deep sapphire blue making it easy to give Dad a watch in his favorite color. The care that has gone into the styling and design of these watches is clear when they are placed next to a watch by another maker. When you do this, the stunning quality and the beauty of Shinola proportions is obvious. Shinola has absolutely captured the American aesthetic that has made companies like Apple Computer and Google global powerhouses. This watch embodies the style, ingenuity and tenacity that sets American men apart from all the others in the world.

    The watches are also unique in that they come in a variety of different sizes, ranging from 36 mm to the 48 mm. The ability to choose between sizes is an important advantage to this brand of watch.

  • Where Not to Buy Your Engagement Ring

    We have all been there, lured into the large chain stores by elaborate marketing that promises low prices... Home Depot is great for pea gravel, but is this really where you want to buy your engagement ring?

    If you are buying your engagement ring from one of the large chain jewelry stores it is a lot like shopping for your engagement ring at a big box home center- minus the return guarantee and the free popcorn.

    Engagement ring buyers beware, the only thing that is usually amazing about these places is that year after year these stores manage to stay in business. At David’s Ltd Jewelers here in Charlotte, we often see customers after they have lost money, time, patience and even their diamond thanks to shopping at one of the large chain stores and this is why we are encouraging you to buy with us or another reputable local jeweler for your most important jewelry purchase.

    Shop here > Transcend Three-stone Engagement Ring

    The Pricing of Engagement Rings

    The most common reason to shop at a local jeweler, like David’s, is you will get the best value for your money. David’s wants to sell you an engagement ring but more importantly, David’s Ltd. wants to make you a happy repeat customer. David’s wants you to come back and we are in business because we are very good at what we do.

    Engagement rings come is so many styles, sizes and levels of quality it is almost impossible to compare one to another. Diamonds themselves are individually rated and/or certified but determining what all this information means in the current market for a particular stone is very difficult. Valuing a diamond properly takes years of training.

    At David’s this is what our jewelers do, every day, every week of the year. So when you shop at our store you are buying years of diamond experience and understanding of the diamond market. Compare this to the sales “team” at any of the chain stores and you will immediately see the difference. Come into David’s and let us show you why clarity is important or how polish effects the look and value of a diamond and then do the same thing at one of the larger stores. At David’s we are here to educate our buyers and get them the very best diamond possible.

    There is More to a Ring than a Diamond

    An engagement ring is more than a diamond; it is a hard working piece of jewelry that is worn every day, almost all day, doing everything from gardening to groceries. How your fiancée lives her life and what she does with her hands are very important considerations when choosing an engagement ring. At David’s we know all the questions to ask in order to get you the right diamond ring for the woman in your life.

    In addition, and this is a very important addition, our rings are designed to last and wear well. David’s approach to the setting of the ring is vastly different from most of the larger stores that import their settings by the thousands.

    Back in the 1960s, it was common to see nice stones in rings with abominably poor settings. When these rings were worn more than a few times, the stones would come loose and fall out. For roughly fifty years this phenomena became less common, but it’s back and this time the rings aren’t coming home with our soldiers they are being sold right here to unsuspecting customers. To add insult to injury, some of the chain stores charge additional amounts for “service contracts” that require you to come into the store every six months so that they can check the setting. So what happens if your wife gets busy and she misses one of these appointments and the setting fails???

    David’s Ltd crafts every setting to last and we also take great care to set every stone to its best advantage. Our jewelers are artisans and each setting is designed as a beautiful piece of jewelry and as a ring that will wear well and protect your diamond.

    Larger Jewelry Stores Don’t Have More Selection

    Years ago, whatever a local retail jeweler had in his store was what he had. This is no longer the case. David’s Ltd. belongs to large diamond databases with the best stones available anywhere in the world. Most of these diamonds can be delivered in as little as a day so that you can see what they look like before you purchase them. What you see in our store is only a select sampling of the stones that are available. Ironically, some of the larger stores actually have a more limited selection because they are forced to use their parent company’s databases rather than the diamond databases used by David’s Ltd.

    Do Your Homework: Find a Good, Reputable Jeweler

    We encourage our buyers to become as knowledge as possible before they buy an engagement ring. It is just as important to become knowledgeable about who is selling you your engagement ring and what their customers think of them. Read through store reviews and spend some time looking at comments on sites like Facebook, Yelp and Twitter. Above all, be particular about choosing the right jeweler and establish a relationship with him/her that can grow over many years.

  • How to Define Her Engagement Ring Style

    Hearts on Fire engagement ring Hearts on Fire engagement ring

    Picking out an engagement ring for your bride-to-be can get overwhelming fast. With so many colors, shapes, stones, and bands to consider, it’s not always easy choosing the perfect one. To really hit a home run, we suggest defining her personal style to find a ring that will complement her lifestyle and that she will adore for a lifetime.

    To get an idea of her style, examine her space, her look and what she's attracted to. Peek in her closet, listen carefully for her feedback on friends' rings and think about her favorite brands.

    Hearts on Fire Modern engagement ring Hearts on Fire Modern engagement ring

    FOR THE MODERN
    A modern woman is trendy and isn’t afraid to stand out in the crowd. She enjoys spontaneous adventures and knows how to make any day memorable. She’s into big, bold fashions that breakaway from the norm. If she’s dreaming of a destination wedding, a quick flight to a fun place, the more unexpected the better - she’s probably a modern bride to be.

    For a modern bride to be, think interesting shapes, bold colors, and fun designs - details that make a statement. Geometric patterns, dual-tones, loud colors, and unique features. Consider fun rings that incorporate asymmetric features, vibrant hues, and unexpected details.

     

    Hearts on Fire Classic engagement ring Hearts on Fire Classic engagement ring

    FOR THE CLASSIC
    Is your love more traditional in a world of new and emerging bridal trends? If you’re bride-to-be is a bit more classic, chances are she enjoys the simpler things in life. She’s chic, but not flashy, refined and elegant. She knows that simple does not have to be boring. If she’s dreaming of a white wedding, complete with family, friends, and all the tried and true traditions - she’s probably a classic bride to be.

    When shopping for her engagement ring, think simple yet beautiful, more modest and understated designs. Focus on rings with classic solitaire settings or prominent round or square cut diamonds in the center of a simple silhouette cast in white or yellow gold.

    Hearts on Fire Romantic engagement ring Hearts on Fire Romantic engagement ring

    FOR THE ROMANTIC
    Is she soft and romantic, drawn towards all that is whimsical and nostalgic? She’s likely an old soul who loves watching sunsets, reading novels, and collecting things from different eras. A glass of wine paired with a classic, black and white film is her idea of a romantic evening. If she’s dreaming of an intimate ceremony with close family gathered around in a charming garden with her favorite flower tucked behind her ear and violins playing in the background, you definitely have a romantic bride-to-be.

    For a romantic partner, think delicate pieces with an old world feel. A touch of floral design mixed with a soft pastel hue or warm tones are likely to match her style preferences. Think feminine and romantic and vintage inspired.

  • Winter Jewelry Care Tips

    Snow in Charlotte, via James Willamor Snow in Charlotte, via James Willamor

    From engagement rings to those beautiful diamond earrings you received Christmas morning, there are few possessions that can rival how special jewelry is. It is imperative that we take the necessary steps to protect our jewelry and preserve it’s beauty so we can appreciate its allure for years to come. While Charlotte's winter can present its own unique challenges to keeping fine jewelry protected, a few easy and simple precautions will make winter jewelry care a breeze.

    How to care for your jewelry while bundling up

    Winter means cooler weather and that means layering up. Some winter-specific clothing items (think gloves, scarves and hats) and more layers means added risk of snagging your jewelry when getting dressed and undressed, which could result in the loss or damage of rings, earrings, and the like. A simple trick is to put your jewelry on only after getting fully dressed, and removing jewelry entirely before getting undressed. If you wear hats or gloves that may cover your jewelry, take special care when removing these articles.

    We also recommend removing any jewelry before going to bed as pieces can easily get caught on blankets.

    How to care for jewelry while having fun

    From playing in the snow and roasting marshmallows to more adventurous skiing and snowboarding, winter brings along some of our favorite activities. Unfortunately, some of these pastimes are not so friendly to our jewelry. These activities sometime present extreme conditions that can pose serious threats to the state of your jewelry. When participating in extreme winter activities, leave your jewelry at home to ensure that none of your precious pieces are lost or damaged. And remember to always store your jewelry in a safe place, shielded from excessive heat, sunlight, and moisture.

    Also remember residue buildup can cause stones to appear cloudy and lose some of their sparkle. Harsh winter weather often calls for special skin care, like the increased use of lotion. But make sure that when caring for your skin, you’re also caring for your jewelry. Remove any jewelry before washing your hands, bathing, or applying lotion.

    How to care for jewelry while traveling

    With holidays, winter breaks and snowy landscapes, winter often means traveling. If jewelry is on your packing list, properly store and pack these items to ensure their safety. Never toss loose jewelry into a suitcase as it could easily be lost or damaged. Try and pack jewelry in a padded area of your suitcase, preferably in a box or pouch that was provided with the piece. If you’re flying, consider keeping your jewelry close by packing it in your carry on so you can keep a close eye on it’s whereabouts and condition.

    It may be a good idea to purchase a travel jewelry box made with special materials and with designated compartments to protect and store your jewelry.

     

    Although winter poses unique threats to jewelry, it’s important to take good care of these delicate belongings all year round. Set a calendar reminder to clean your jewelry at least once a month- and even more often for pieces that you wear daily. Also, consider regularly taking your jewelry to a professional jeweler for annual check-ups. Our team can assess the state of your jewelry (down to details not seen by the unaided eye) and help prevent damage like tarnish or loosened stones.

    Have fun this season, but make sure to protect your jewelry so you can continue to enjoy it's splendor for many winter's to come!

    SOMETHING PERSONALIZED
    Incorporating an initial, birthstone or favorite gemstone into a jewelry gift is a beautiful way to celebrate someone. We love stacking gemstone bands and layering Hearts on Fire initial pendants with other necklaces.

    A FOREVER TIMEPIECE
    This holiday, give the gift of time. Watches fit multiple lifestyles and personal tastes. They keep the wearer on time and looking good. A watch is ideal for a grad going to college, a new groom and a businessperson starting a new venture in the new year!
