Ask anyone from Texas and they’ll know the name James Avery. They will also likely have a story behind each piece they own. Throughout my teen years I loved collecting charms to display on my bracelets and rings. My love for the line started in middle school and I only grew fonder of their finely crafted jewelry designs as I got older.

Wedding Ring Re-do
If you follow my Instagram stories, you know that I recently had my wedding ring re-designed. This was my Christmas present from Mr. T. My original setting seemed to always be catching on things or inadvertently scratching people – yikes! When one of the prongs bent, I decided it was time to find a new home for that beautiful rock.
This is the best pic I can find of the old setting…
Initially I was adamant on having sapphires incorporated into the new setting. But after trying them on, I decided to add the gemstone color with bands rather than in the setting itself. In doing so, I didn’t sacrifice the “uniqueness” I was aiming for because I was able to incorporate mixed metals (see pic below). I truly love it and think it makes the band one-of-a-kind! If you’d like to know more about where I had my ring done, feel free to give me a shout.
James Avery brought it full-circle
I was absolutely thrilled to come across this James Avery Multi-Layered Cuff Bracelet recently whilst browsing the Norcross location. It ties in so perfectly with my ring setting; I can’t help but feel like the cuff completes my new wedding band and draws attention to the subtle uniqueness in the mixed metal design.
James Avery remains a family owned business since 1954, which I love. Expect to be smitten with their offering of finely crafted jewelry designs in sterling silver, 14K and 18K yellow and white gold, and gemstones for women and men. To top it off, they do it all in the great state of Texas! And in the Texas Hill Country for that matter – which has a special place in my heart.
I hope you’ll take a sec to check out their latest collections – I’m sure you’ll fall in love with them like I did so many years ago! The February customer story is a real tear-jerker…you’ve been warned…
