If you read the title, we are in fact not a jewelry store. Not a traditional one anyway. As the saying goes, “One’s man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” We take that saying to the next level. I can’t tell you how many times I have sat with a person who has rings and necklaces that were their mom’s, grandma’s, or great aunt’s and they have said, “What will you give me for all this, I just don’t wear any of them.” My response is almost always, “You will get greater value out of these if you can see them as raw materials, as metals and gemstones, and put them into something you would wear.” It’s shocking to people when they are told they can repurpose jewelry. (Click here to read one of our success stories.)
We find any way we can to repurpose, reuse and recycle your jewelry in order to get you the most value out of what you already own. Not only that, but in cases of high sentimental value, that sentimentality is retained as the stones and metals are the same but the design is changed to align with your own personal tastes. We are so committed to helping you get the most out of what you already have, that we made all of our own jewelry displays out of all reclaimed materials. Through frequent visits to the “Creative reuse center of the Piedmont Triad”, Reconsidered Goods, we found a plethora of unique items that had great potential as jewelry displays. Each unique display was a labor of love to showcase that old pieces can be given a new life, just like jewelry. Scroll through and see a sample of a few of our displays, better yet, come by and see for yourself!
In addition to chaining our displays, we have begun to switch some of our furniture as well. Opting for unique and individualized pieces that are not only functional and comfortable but have a story as well! Like the chair pictured below. Manufactured in Siler City, NC by the Boling Chair company. Boling Chair Co. started out in 1901 as Siler City Bending Co. One of the company’s founders, Mal Boling, rebranded as High Point Bending and Chair Co. in 1904. Up until that point, it made bentwood parts for other companies before producing its own bentwood furniture. The company’s name became Boling Chair Co. in 1956 or ’57, and then Boling Co. in 1979. They are still around today! based in Mt. Olive, N.C., and called Boling Furniture Co. Just like your jewelry has a history, a story, and a unique air about it we want to produce new jewelry for you that becomes an instant heirloom.
