BC Clark Re-Opening

We are excited to announce that our stores have begun reopening! Our Penn Square and Northpark store will re-open May 1st from 11-6pm. Our Downtown store will open Monday, May 4th from 10-5pm.

We look forward to once again being able to serve our dear customers and friends. Although we are re-opening, the threat from COVID-19 is not over.

With that in mind, we have precautions in place to protect both our loyal customers and our family of employees. Here are some of those precautions that may affect you as the customer.

  • We are instituting a no-contact policy (no hugs, handshakes, or other close contacts), and we encourage adherence to the 6 ft social distancing standard.
  • As needed, we may have to limit the number of customers inside the store at one time.
  • All employees will be required to wear masks to protect both themselves and the customer.
  • We will be temporarily suspending coffee machines or self serve food or drinks on the sales floor.
  • We will be taking extra precautions when handling customer’s jewelry and repairs. We encourage repairs to be limited to more urgent needs.
  • Please allow for extra time when dropping off a watch for service, repair, or watch batteries.
  • In an abundance of caution, we will not be taking appraisals at this time.
  • Although our showrooms are open, we will still offer free priority shipping on all jewelry items and curbside pick-up.
  • Any merchandise removed from the showcase will be sanitized before returning to the showcase.
  • All employees’ temperatures will be checked upon arrival to work.

We are grateful to be reopening and for the FAITH + HOPE + LOVE that our community has shared with us during this time. We look forward to seeing you and remember, we are always open and ready to serve you online.

FAITH + HOPE + LOVE

A message of hope and promise. Commitment and solidarity. We will celebrate life and love always, no matter what.

And amidst these uncertain times, nothing is more important.

FAITH + HOPE + LOVE

We live and walk by FAITH.

Faith in God’s goodness, His plan, and Faith in each other. And followed by action, Faith can be a powerful thing.

Which brings us to HOPE.

We see it as our responsibility to offer Hope to the community that has given us so much over the years – not just through a promise and encouragement that Oklahoma and its people will come back stronger, but through actively doing our small part to help.

To spread this Hope, we have given $50,000 from our BC Clark Family Fund to local COVID-19 relief to be administered by the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

And of course, LOVE.

The greatest of these is Love, which is also the foundation of BC Clark’s existence. We have been a part of Oklahoma’s love stories for over 125 years!

The privilege of seeing love shape so many families over time is the most rewarding part of our business. That is why we can say with confidence: As Oklahomans, we will support each other in these challenging times. We will continue to express our love for one another with occasions and milestones worth celebrating. A thriving local business community to prevail.

With FAITH+HOPE+LOVE as our guiding principles, we know that we will come through this, TOGETHER.

Carrie Underwood wears ‘The Heart of Oklahoma’ at CMA Awards

If you tuned into the opening performance of the 53rd Country Music Awards Wednesday night, you may have been blown away by the collective star power of Carrie Underwood, Reba McIntyre, and Dolly Parton. But if you looked a little closer, you may have noticed another star shining in the spotlight. Right there, center stage, BC Clark’s ‘The Heart of Oklahoma’ diamond in a Harry Kotlar masterpiece sparkled on Carrie Underwood’s finger.

It was a special moment for all of us at BC Clark to see this diamond that means so much to us worn by one of Oklahoma’s most accomplished and talented stars.

Carrie Underwood, who hosted and performed at the CMA’s, wore the diamond set in a magnificent ring design by the Harry Kotlar company while performing. ‘The Heart of Oklahoma’ sparkled in the spotlight, framed by colorless baguette diamonds.

‘The Heart of Oklahoma’ is an extremely rare 18.92-carat diamond graded Internally Flawless, Fancy Intense Yellow, valued at $1.2 million.

Seven years ago, Coleman and Mitchell Clark set out to find a diamond not only worthy of celebrating BC Clark’s legacy in Oklahoma but worthy of honoring the state itself and its people. Last year, we finally found a once in a generation diamond that was a perfect match. Cut from a 38.05-carat rough diamond that was mined off-shore Namibia, Africa, it was polished to 18.92 carats to celebrate our founding year, 1892. Then we worked with jewelry design house Harry Kotlar to design and craft the one-of-a-kind ring.

Considering that the diamond is a tribute to Oklahoma, we couldn’t have asked for anybody better to wear the ring than our fellow Oklahoman. The singer, songwriter, fashion designer, and actress was raised in Checotah, OK. Seeing a diamond dedicated to our home state worn by one of Oklahoma’s most successful music stars was thrilling for everyone at BC Clark.

The diamond ring will promptly return from Nashville to Oklahoma City to be on display at the BC Clark store in Downtown Oklahoma City on Friday, Nov. 15, and at the Penn Square Mall location on Saturday, Nov. 16, during regular store hours.

Exciting News: BC Clark to Open New Store in Classen Curve Summer 2020

We are really excited to announce that our Penn Square store will be relocating to Classen Curve Summer of 2020! Here is the official press release to give you more information:

BC Clark, Oklahoma’s oldest and most prominent jeweler, plans to open Oklahoma’s largest and most prestigious jewelry store at Classen Curve in 2020.

 

The company’s current Penn Square Mall location, including the staff, will relocate to the fully remodeled new location at Classen Curve in summer 2020.

 

“Classen Curve has become Oklahoma City’s premier shopping destination, and we look forward to joining the fantastic retailers there,” said BC Clark President Coleman Clark. “When the new store opens, our customers will experience a dynamic and inviting environment, see a wider selection in every department and find convenient parking just steps from our door.”

 

The store will occupy the space previously held by Balliets, and an extensive renovation will bring in even more natural light and a fresh, new look. The showroom will grow by over 30%, including expanded Rolex, David Yurman, engagement ring and Life:Style departments.

 

“The retail landscape is evolving. Shopping habits and consumer expectations are changing. We are in tune with our customers and will provide an approachable, comfortable and luxurious store experience,” Clark said. “The new store demonstrates our family’s commitment to Oklahoma City for years to come and solidifies BC Clark’s position as Oklahoma’s leading jewelry retailer.”

 

The existing Penn Square store will remain fully staffed through the coming holiday season and the first half of 2020.

 

Shannon Barghols, marketing director at Classen Curve, welcomed her new tenants.

 

“Classen Curve already has the best shopping and dining in Oklahoma for every occasion,” she said. “Adding a legendary local brand gives customers one more reason to shop in the heart of the city.”
