BC Clark Wedding Day Story Contest

To celebrate our 20th year of Pray for Rain, we decided to do something a little bit different. We wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate all marriages, including those of our more than 200 Pray for Rain winners. So we created a “Wedding Day Story contest” and asked our social media followers and email subscribers to submit their story. The winners would receive a dinner for two courtesy of BC Clark.

We were overwhelmed by all of the amazing stories and responses we received. After narrowing the entries down to three stories we asked our followers to vote for their favorite.

Below is the winning story. Thanks to everyone who entered!

“It was our wedding day, May 24, 2014 and nothing was going as planned. My aunt who was my hairdresser and make up artist had broken her wrist the day before the wedding, the fairy-tale carriage my mother hired to take me up the drive to the park took a wrong turn into traffic and I ended up being almost an hour late, then our outside reception got rained out, 100’s of dollars worth of food was ruined and we didn’t even get our first dance due to the DJ’s equipment getting soaked. At first we were both a bit upset about everything that had happened, but the friends and family members who stuck the rain out with us encouraged us to see the good in the day. Even though my hair and make up weren’t as expected, I was late to my own wedding, and we didn’t get a reception or a first dance we at least had a beautiful ceremony. The rain held out and the sun shined through as my dad walked me down the aisle to the song my husband proposed to me to, it held out until after we said our vows and nailed shut our forever box, and it also held out until after we said our I do’s and walked back down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs. Reyes. After really thinking about this we decided none of the mishaps had mattered because the ceremony was beautiful and we were still able to join together as one in front of friends and family as we had wanted. We forgot about all the bad instantly and decided to use the rain as an opportunity for amazing “ruin the dress and tux” photos! We had so much fun and the photos turned out great. Everyone told us our wedding would sure be the one to remember and every once in a while some of us still talk about it to this day. <3″

August is Watch Battery Month!

August is the perfect time to come in and replace your watch battery. “Why?” you might ask, well this month 100% of the revenue from very watch battery sold will be donated to the Jewelers for Children Fund.

This year, the Jewelers for Children Fund will be donating all of the contributions from across the Jewelers network to charities such as The St. Jude’s Children’s Foundation, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children, and the Make a Wish Foundation.

We are proud to continue in this yearly tradition of giving and appreciate the support from all of our amazing customers like you.  Our watch battery replacement service is just $20 (or $10 with a Keep It Local card) at each of our three locations. Stop in today!

The Forevermark Exceptional Diamond Collection

BC Clark is proud to carry some of the rarest and most beautiful diamonds in the world. Now that holds even more true with the newest collection by Forevermark – The Exceptional Diamond Collection.

“Forevermark is built on the promise that each diamond to earn our inscription must be beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced. The Exceptional Diamond Collection represents the pinnacle of that promise: some of the earth’s most magnificent creations, in carat weights that demonstrate just how magical and stunning nature’s beauty can be. Few diamonds will ever reach this echelon.”

Each year, only a select number of Exceptional Diamonds are discovered, and each of these 3 carats or larger gems has a unique story. A book of origin and a replica of the diamond’s original rough form demonstrate why each is truly one of a kind.  We invite you to stop by each of our three locations to see these beautiful diamonds in person.

The video below shows you a glimpse into the inspiration behind the newest Forevermark collection.

Custom Design & CAD Jewelry Design

One thing you may not know about BC Clark is the amount of custom design work that takes place at each of our three locations. Our Northpark location, in particular, does many custom jewelry design projects and recently added a new member to the BC Clark team, Lance Masterson.

Lance is not only the newest member to our sales team, he also brings a lot of experience in Jewelry and CAD design. CAD jewelry designs are developed on computer screens by using state-of-the-art equipment and software to take a sketch or an idea and turn it into reality. After the CAD design is finalized, the digital file is sent to a manufacturer where the piece is then created.

It is intriguing to watch him work with customers and other sales associates to design the pieces they have always dreamed of owning. Some designs are created using stones the customer already has, while others are created with just a vision in mind.

We have added a few of Lance’s most recent CAD design projects to the gallery to left. If you have any questions or inquiries into the custom design process, we encourage you to give one of our locations a call. We would be happy to assist you.

Trend Alert – Stackable Bands

Gone are the days of stackable bands being only for fashion jewelry or as an addition to your engagement ring, this trend has become the forefront of many luxury designers’ collections both in diamonds and in unique gemstones.

For a little over a year now we have watched the “Stackable” bands trend take off. As the year has gone by, we have seen more and more of our favorite designers create stackable collections of their own. In fact, they were all the rage during one of the largest jewelry trade shows earlier this month in Las Vegas, where several of our buyers previewed new designer collections from all over the world.

In the gallery, we have put together a few of our favorites by different designers. While some of these sets could replace traditional engagement rings, others are the perfect statement accessories for any finger to mix and match and make your own.

John Hardy’s Dot Moon Phase Collection

The new John Hardy Dot Moon Phase collection is here! It features a hand-hammered designed inspired by Bali’s full moon ceremonies. Much like Hardy’s other pieces, this collection evokes the beauty of the natural world.

Bali’s Full Moon Ceremonies

Purnama, the day of the full moon is a very special day for the Balinese people.  Purnama helps to obtain an abundant harvest the following year. The Balinese spend the day together celebrating lives blessing with good food and friends.

We can see why John Hardy chose this ceremony as the inspiration for this dynamic new collection. It is beautiful and truly celebrates nature and culture.

This new collection is available in all sterling silver or sterling silver with black rhodium and 14K gold. Pieces from this new collection are available at all three BC Clark locations.
