January Newsletter

Happy New Year from Curt Parker Jewelers 

The holidays are a great time of year to spend with family and friends. So whether you're bundled up by the fireplace, sharing special stories with family or reconnecting with old friends, please accept our sincere appreciation for being a valued customer.

On behalf of all of us in the Curt Parker Jewelers family, thank you for your patronage.      

We understand that you have many choices when it comes to purchasing your jewelry.    

Our goal is to treat you like we want to be treated and help you find jewelry that will suit your particular taste or for the person you are buying for.     

As the team returns to work in 2006, we'll be right back at it - putting together collections of the jewelry you want to wear or give. If there are any jewelry brands or styles you would like us to carry in the store please let us know.


Having too much fun can ruin your jewelry


I’m guilty. I have to admit it. It happened back in 2001 when I saw Prince in concert. I enjoyed it so much that I couldn’t stop clapping my hands and screaming. The next morning I awoke to damaged rings. I had worn two platinum rings to the concert; one on each ring finger. Every time I clapped my hands, I dented my rings by banging the metals together. The next day it was obvious I had a great time by glancing at the dimpled “golf ball effect” all over my rings. This can happen with any metal and it’s not pretty.


We see a lot of damaged jewelry at Curt Parker Jewelers from women simply having too much fun in their jewelry. Lady’s, please take your jewelry off before you go to bed no matter how tired you are. Bracelets and necklaces can last twice as long with a little extra care. And please, save your pearls by putting them on after your hairspray and perfume. Did you know that chlorine in pools and hot tubs can eat away the alloys in 14k and 18k jewelry and make the metal pitted and brittle?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all in favor of having as much fun as possible. Learn from my mistakes and use a little caution and you will look your Brilliant best for years instead of one really great night.

 Birthstone for January

When most people think garnet, they see only images of a dark red gemstone. But look a little deeper into garnet’s many varieties, and you’ll discover every color of the rainbow except blue. Few gems can rival garnet in the diversity of colors available. The green of summer grass, the gold of freshly harvested wheat, the orange of fiery hot steel, the pink of a delicate rosebud – garnet offers all these colors and more.
