12.19.16 SCORE! (Ippolita trunk show follow up)

Last week I suggested that if you were in Austin and had time, you should swing by Russell Korman for the Ippolita trunk show...and here's one of the reasons why...when jewelry reps travel for these shows, they often bring "hidden gems" (ha, ha, ha) with them that you won't find in regular store stock or online.

I told my husband I was going - and he said "oh, good - make sure I buy you something really nice for Hanukkah and our anniversary".  Only too happy to oblige, when I spotted these silver and diamond linear drops I knew right away that they were going to be mine.  They have clean lines, classic styling and great movement (all the things I love in a piece of jewelry).

I got home and went to the Ippolita website, in search of a picture (better than one I could take) to post - and couldn't find them.  I typed in the style number written on my receipt, and got an error message that read "SORRY THERE ARE NO RESULTS FOR THAT ITEM NUMBER".

Well, I knew that wasn't true - because I bought them.  So I searched a little more with keywords...

I found these...

and these...

but not the ones I purchased.

So I called Ippolita, and asked...turns out that they take samples and one of kind pieces to trunk shows - and that's the only place you can find them.

I am thrilled!  Not only do a I have great new pair of earrings - that look fabulous with my lost wax pendant - but they are unique, which makes them extra special.

I encourage you, any time you can, to attend trunk shows - you can talk to the jewelry artist or their representative, learn more about the brand, and often find something really special for yourself or a gift.

There's still a week until Hanukkah and Christmas - I hope, if you are still shopping, you will seek out local holiday fairs and trunk shows at your favorite independent jeweler.

Whatever your celebration over the next few days - I hope it is full of sparkle.

Until next time.
