There is something extra special about receiving a gift of jewelry. It means that someone stopped and took the time to think about what would be perfect for just me. It is something I may not treat myself to, but I definitely want. Electronics and housewares will not evoke the same emotional response as a small, beautifully wrapped box under the Christmas tree.
And long after my gift of perfume or iPad is gone, I will still be enjoying my piece of jewelry, and the memory it brings me. As women, we are taught to keep our jewelry forever, and to pass it down to our daughters and granddaughters. It is one of the few things in this day and age that is not disposable.
If you are considering buying a loved jewelry this Christmas or Chanukah, The Harbor Goldsmith has a wide variety of items in stock for all tastes and budgets. For more than twenty-three years, thestore has established a reputation of excellence and quality on Marco Island, and beyond. The shop carries many of their own handmade pieces, designed and created on premises. And every year owner Richard Alan and his wife Andrea travel to Europe on buying trips to bring back the newest jewelry trends and styles. Which means that in addition to being beautiful, the jewelry that you buy at The Harbor Goldsmith is unique.
For those that may struggle on which item to purchase, they carry classic pieces that you can’t go wrong with, like diamond stud earrings, tennis bracelets and pendant charms. The staff at The Harbor Goldsmith is extremely friendly, and they offer experienced guidance to buyers. If you need more help, The Harbor Goldsmith set up a foolproof system for gift shopping that is tasteful and discrete. Women can make up a wish list or fill out a card to assist their husband/boyfriend buying a gift that they will love.
However, it’sa misconception that only men buy gifts for women. Many women nowadays buy jewelry for family and friends during the holidays. A great gift item to consider is the Marco Island bracelet – in exciting new designs that include nautical themes and a variety of sea life. The store also carries the Lafonn jewelry line, which make great gifts. The line sparkles and looks high-end, despite starting at only around $100.
There is still time to purchase those last minute gifts! The shop’s seasonal hours are Monday through Friday, from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM, and Saturday from 9:30 AM to 2 PM (closed Sundays). During the off-season, which usually runs from July 4th to Labor Day, store hours are Monday through Friday, 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM (closed Saturday and Sunday).
