Back to School – Did you Forget Something?

By now your back to school shopping list is complete. You have picked up pencils, backpacks, sneakers and socks. You can now breathe a sigh of relief that your young one is ready for another school year. But there may be a couple of items that never made it onto your back to school list. Did you remember to stop at your local jeweler for something to mark this milestone? If not don’t worry we are here to help.

Every new school year is a milestone worth noting. One great way to commemorate it is with a new charm bead or an alternate metal fashion ring. Or perhaps you are sending your child off to college. Would a new wristwatch help the college freshman to be on time for class? We can’t guarantee that a new watch will ensure punctuality, but surely every time they look at that watch they will think about the people that love them and want them to succeed in this new chapter of life. Whatever your back to school jewelry need is, stop into Amoskeag Jewelers today and let our helpful staff complete your back to school list.

Selling Your Estate Jewelry – The Green Choice

Selling Your Estate Jewelry – The Green Choice

Many people are looking for small changes that they can make in life to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. One small change many people never consider is selling and purchasing estate jewelry. You recycle all of your plastic and tin cans, so why not recycle your gold and silver jewelry?

Many times people have stopped using a piece of jewelry but it is still in good condition and it can be used for many more years. If it still has lots of life to it, bring it to your local jeweler, you will get a little extra cash in your pocket and the item can be passed on to someone else. Or perhaps it has become completely worn out and is beyond the point of repairing. If that is the case, your local jeweler can break it down into its core components and reuse those to make another piece of jewelry. Either way you are helping the environment and that is a little change you can feel good about.

If you have some estate jewelry that you are looking to sell, stop into Amoskeag Jewelers today. Our jewelry experts will help you choose the best option to recycle your jewelry the green way.

Amethyst – The Birthstone For February

Amethyst is the purple variety of the mineral quartz. For centuries it has been prized for the vivid purple tones it comes in. Amethysts are fit for a queen, yet affordable enough for everyday wear. That is why you will find amethysts prominently displayed in everything from the crown jewels, to the affordable sweetheart ring on a young lady’s hand.

In addition to being the birthstone for the month of February, amethysts are also the traditional gemstone for the 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries. But regardless of the month a person is born in, or the number of years a person has been married, a gift of amethyst jewelry will always be well received. If you want to make someone feel like royalty, stop into Amoskeag Jewelers today and let us help you select an affordable piece of amethyst jewelry that is fit for a queen.
