"About 10 years ago I went to an estate sale and picked up a REALLY cool ring that was missing it's stone. It was pretty tarnished. I was sure it wasn't real gold, but I was so enthralled with the design that I bought it anyway. I paid about $20 for it.
Then... it sat in the back of my jewelry box for a decade. I ran across it one day and thought, "Hmmm... I wonder what Park City Jewelers could do with this...?"
So I brought it to the store and I found out that it's actually 14k gold and was likely hand-crafted about a hundred years ago. SCORE! I love vintage.
Ken helped me pick out a SUPER eye-catching blue topaz that I thought accented the gold ring beautifully. I love wearing this ring! I'm so happy I brought it to PCJ."
What treasures do you have lying around in your jewelry box, unworn for a decade? Bring them in, update them, fix them up, and wear them again.
(This is a video from the day Ken helped me pick out the stone.)
Peridot is a unique stone with a deep and fascinating history. It has been used in jewelry for thousands of years, it was once known as an "evening emerald" since its green color didn't darken at night. It is a gem that is heavily connected to ancient Egypt & Cleopatra. Some historians believe that the famous emeralds of Cleopatra were actually peridot.
