What Should We Treasure

2019-04-17T13:41:45+00:00 |Categories: Photography, Product Release|Tags: , , , |

The Notre Dame Cathedral fire reminds us that it isn’t shallow to believe there is value in material things.

This week the world has been stunned by the destruction of one of its most historic landmarks, the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral. At first this wouldn’t seem like a jewelry related story, but in reality it’s a reminder that while losing a life is the greatest tragedy, the destruction of beautiful and meaningful works of art is also a mournful disaster. Losing these works is losing what these great past people spent their lives to build.

Sculptures, artwork, and jewelry are all material things and we are taught that material things are not what people should truly value. While it’s obvious that the people in our lives are most important, the material things that those people spend their lives building, creating, or cherishing is also of significant value. The amount of time spent by people on just one finished diamond, from mining it, to transporting it across the world, to cutting it, to grading it, to setting it, is incredible. That diamond is part of the legacy of those people and that has value and meaning.

Lives matter, but what also matters is what we spend our lives to create.

Moving on, this month we have a new featured piece, a high quality princess cut diamond with a pretty setting and diamond accents. At 25% off for the month, its not inexpensive but its still a good value and you can click here to find it.

We apologize that blogs are getting posted at a slower frequency, but we are still dedicated to keeping this site updated and adding new things. We are always looking for new ways to make it more exciting and more valuable for our visitors.

As always we thank you for visiting our website and reading our updates, we hope you can keep cool as the summer heat starts moving in.

We all have our Christmas lists finished and are anxiously awaiting Santa.

This Christmas Ashley wants some expensive stuff for the kitchen, James is looking into a new computer monitor, Matt is hoping for gift cards for his favorite stores, and John is asking for a new cover for the back of his truck. We are all tucked in to our holiday sweaters and awaiting the parade coming this Saturday.

Of course, if you are looking for some sparkly new accessories to your jewelry box, we can also be of use to you (or santa, if he is the one who brings the presents to your house.)

Thankful for a calm September in Ocala

September babies are known to be active and dynamic!

Unfortunately that is the opposite of our updates lately. After a summer of doing a bad job coordinating our schedule with the release of Ocala Magazines, we are finally back with an update!

This time last year we were all dealing with the stress of a huge hurricane, and our hearts are with the large number of people who are affected by hurricane Florence right now. In these times it’s nice to remember that though nature can be savage and devastating, it can also be beautiful and nurturing.

This month’s featured piece is one of those natural works of beauty and wonder. A custom-made piece featuring a lab certified sapphire set in 14k white gold. Its featured in our Ocala Magazine ad for this month and is 25% off until we unveil our next one. Click here to check it out.

If you would like to know more about sapphire, one of the “big three” colored gemstones and the birthstone for September, click here.

As always we thank you for visiting our website and reading our updates, and we apologize that they have come so infrequently lately. Continue visiting us and we will continue to add more information, education, and photography of jewelry.

June’s piece- a classic pearl ring

2018-09-18T13:39:27+00:00 |Categories: Photography, Product Release|Tags: , , , |

This June, we wanted to go classic.

And nothing is more classic then pearl. The birthstone for June, along with alexandrite, pearl is a soft organic stone that comes in all colors, but is mostly known for being white. Pearls have been appreciated for thousands of years, but for us they invoke images of glamour from the 1940’s and 1950’s, America’s good ole days and the timeless beauty of Marilyn Monroe.

This month’s featured piece is a yellow gold and pearl ring with diamond accents, a simply and classy look that should please any pearl fan. Click here to see its product page. Like all our featured pieces, it appears in our Ocala magazine ad for June and it is 25% off until our July piece is unveiled.

We hope you are enjoying the summer and staying cool. Keep checking back with us at Ocala’s best jewelry store website, for more jewelry, information, and education!

May we show you a lovely emerald piece?

2018-05-07T15:13:46+00:00 |Categories: Photography, Product Release|Tags: , , , |

May is a great month for mothers and emerald lovers

And it seems that everyone we meet is an emerald lover! Emerald is one of the three most important colored gemstones classically (ruby and sapphire being the other two) and those who were born in May get the privilege of having it as their birthstone.

Of course, we love emerald too, and its no surprise that our most popular featured piece of 2017 was our emerald and yellow gold ring from May (which we still get inquiries and compliments on often from customers who saw it in our Ocala Magazine ad.) It was a daunting task to make another emerald piece that lived up to that standard. Did we succeed? You can be the judge and view our featured piece for this month, a lovely grass green emerald set in 18k gold, by clicking here. Its 25% off until our next featured piece in June.

If you would just like to know more about emerald as gemstone, you can check out more about it in our gemstone fact page for emerald, here.

This month is also special for all the moms in the world. Moms give year round and May 13 is the only day set aside on the calendar for us to give back. We hope you take the opportunity to celebrate that day in a special way. We know that its not always in the budget to buy a big piece of jewelry for Mother’s day but we find that a custom engraving is always a great and affordable gift.

Until next time, keep checking back with us at Ocala’s best jewelry store website, for more jewelry, information, and education!

A Beautiful Pendant for April

2018-04-12T13:20:31+00:00 |Categories: Photography, Product Release|Tags: , , , |

We hope that April brought you the opportunity to find many eggs. 

This month is a great time to shop for two of our favorite things, candy and diamonds. We are not going to try and tell you that chocolate is less exciting then diamonds, but we do have a special deal on the latter. Diamond is the birthstone for April, and in honor of that we have a special custom designed white gold and diamond pendant as this months featured piece. This piece is 25% off until next month, and you can find out more about it here!

Or if you would like to learn more about diamond, you can view our diamond gemstone fact page here.

We have been slowly but surely working on more features for this website, more products are on the way and we close to adding a checkout process that is up to our extremely high standards of safety and security. We will also be adding articles and news more frequently in the coming months, including a new article soon from our very own Ashley Stone.

Its time to kick back, relax, and enjoy great jewelry (or the beach).

Hey Ocala, its a surprisingly cold spring break and hopefully this post finds you happy and warm. This month’s birthstone is aquamarine, one of the most popular blue stones which has green tint like looking into the ocean. This month our featured piece is a lovely platinum aquamarine ring with diamond accents, which is 25% until next month and you can find more about it here.

Amethyst is the only birthstone for February and one of the only purple gems, it is beautiful and inexpensive for a gem which makes it a favorite for some.If you would like to know more about amethyst, our amethyst fact page is here.

Valentine’s day this year also brought great sadness to Florida and our hearts go out to those effected. There are no words for tragedies like these.

2018 is here!

Hey there, we hope this post finds you happily recovering from a busy holiday season. We apologize for missing our December posts in the midst of the madness of Christmas, but now we have taken down the tree, thrown away the ripped up wrapping paper, and cleaned off our desks for new year of working to be the best jewelry store in Ocala.

January’s birthstone is garnet, a rich warm red stone that reminds us of deep happy affections and comfort. In appreciation of the beauty of garnet and those of us born in January, this month’s featured piece is a heart shaped garnet in a beautiful 18k white gold mounting. You can find it here, it’s 25% off for the month like all our featured pieces, and is the centerpiece of our Ocala Magazine ad for this month.

If you would like to know more about garnet, our garnet fact page is here.

As always we appreciate your visit to our website, Christmas has found many homes for the pieces on this site, and we will be adding new and exciting pieces to our inventory soon, so check back with us at Ocala’s largest jewelry store, Silver City!

Topaz for thanksgiving.

2017-11-13T11:16:54+00:00 |Categories: Photography, Product Release|Tags: , , , , |

Topaz reminds us of a warm Thanksgiving dinner table. 

Until the final turkey leaves the table, this month is about Thanksgiving- a house full of family, your favorite relative’s pumpkin pie, and remembering the things we cherish in life. Unfortunately, it’s often the tragic moments during the year that makes us really appreciate the things we still have. This year has seen much tragedy in the world, natural disasters locally, and a few health scares in our own Silver City family; but all of this reminds us how blessed we are for the things we have. We hope this November finds you feeling the same.

November’s birthstone(s) are traditionally those of the brown/orange/yellow shades, and we often hear people born in November lament that topaz and citrine aren’t very pretty. Our goal for this month’s featured piece was to make a precious topaz that shows November babies that their birthstone is equally lovely to any other month. We believe we hit that mark, and we hope you agree!  You can find more about the newest featured piece, a white gold and golden topaz ring with diamond accents, at this link.  It is featured in our ad for this month’s Ocala Magazine, and it is 25% off until the next featured piece comes out in December. But remember, we only have one so if you are interested then don’t delay!

Topaz is actually one of the most important stones in our culture, a possible birthstone for two months, and available in nearly ever color and price point. If you would like to know more about Topaz, then you can find our newest gemstone fact page here.

We truly thank you for visiting us here at silver city jewelers, Ocala’s largest jewelry store. We hope you have a great thanksgiving and don’t forget to check back for more information, products, and deals!
