Meet Abby, our new LoHi store manager!

Posted on February 27, 2018 by Kelly Henderson | 0 comments

Hi! I’m Abby and I’m super excited to join the Metalmark Fine Jewelry team as LoHi Store Manager. My husband and I recently moved to Denver from Brooklyn, NY, and so far we’re loving every minute of our new lives here.

Finding Metalmark was kismet, as I’ve spent the last 8 years in the jewelry industry. I’ve worked for brands such as Chopard, Alexis Bittar and BaubleBar, to name a few. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to now work with all the amazing designers Metalmark carries. We thought it would be fun to do a little Q&A so I can share more about my love for jewelry with you!

Q&A WITH ABBY SNOW 

What does jewelry mean to you? 

Jewelry means self-expression. It’s a completely individual way of expressing your personality.

 
Why did you decide to venture into the jewelry world?
It honestly just sort of happened. I had just moved to New York after college and was looking for my first “big girl” job. Through a temp agency, I was hired as a receptionist at Chopard (a Swiss luxury watch and jewelry company) and after a few months, a sales position opened up.
 
What is your favorite memory of your first job?

My favorite memories of my first job would definitely be traveling to LA for all the award shows. I had amazing opportunities to work with stylists and celebrities directly by loaning jewelry for the Oscars and Emmys. Sending Cate Blanchett a pair of 33ct opal earrings and then watching her win her Oscar wearing them a few hours later was pretty amazing.

What do you love about working at Metalmark?

Of all the many reasons, I think the top would be our support of local designers. Samantha and Mary do an incredible job curating the store. It’s so cool there are so many talented designers here in Denver that we’re able to represent.

Do you have a favorite designer that Metalmark carries? 

I don’t think I could narrow it down to just one! All our designers are so unique in their own ways and bring such different point of views, which is great since there is something here for everyone!

What is your favorite part of custom jewelry? 

So many things, but it would definitely be that custom jewelry is completely one-of-a-kind. Clients get to create their own unique piece to wear and treasure forever and I think that’s so special.

Who’s jewelry box would you most like to raid? 

This is hard! I would have to say either Elizabeth Taylor (for obvious reasons), or the Olsen twins, as I imagine they have an amazing, eclectic vintage collection.

Who/what is your style inspiration?

I look for style inspiration in a lot of places, whether it’s an actual social media “influencer” with a well-curated brand, a piece of art, a cool color-palette, or a fashion icon of the past.

What is the most meaningful piece of jewelry you own?

Definitely my engagement ring. My sweet husband designed it completely on his own with no input from me whatsoever, and he did an incredible job.

What are you looking forward to in 2018 at Metalmark?

I’m just so excited to be at the store, meet new people, and help customers with all of their jewelry desires!

Have Yourself a Metalmark Christmas

Posted on December 01, 2017 by Elise Matson | 0 comments

Let’s have a moment of holiday honesty: during the December and bustle, it’s hard to find the time to write a Christmas wish list. With help from Metalmark, though, writing your wish list and completing your holiday shopping can be a piece of fruitcake! Here are our merriest and brightest jewelry suggestions to make up the perfect Christmas wish list:

Treat Yourself First 

‘Tis the season to treat yourself! Whether your jewelry style is a little bit naughty or 100 percent nice, Metalmark has the gift that belongs on your personal jewelry wish list. Begin your holiday gift hunt with our Metalmark Catalog!

Gifts for Family and Friends

Forget the Christmas card and make their December a month to remember! Delicate necklaces and earrings from Bloom Jewelry’s diamond collection, statement Pluma earrings from Bohemi, and one-of-a-kind handbags from Jay Davis Bags are all gorgeous gifts that will delight your family and friends!  

 

Gifts for Her 

Gentlemen, all she wants for Christmas is you…and something that sparkles! Our NEW Metalmark Signature diamond studs would make stunning stocking-stuffers, Sarah Hendler’s sleek Shirley rings would certainly win her grin, and a Jade Trau cuff or earrings would be the prettiest present to capture her heart.

 

Gifts for Him

Ladies, put down the tool-kit and leave the king-sized candy bar behind. A unique, customizable, wedding band from TAP by Todd Pownell is the perfect gift for your man!

Remember – we’re happy to help curate your holiday wish list! Stop in to Metalmark and let us help you shop or, if you’re out of town, contact us for questions about catalog or about customization. We’re here to help you have a happy – and sparkling - holiday!  

The Metalmark Catalog: You’re Grown-Up Christmas List

Posted on November 09, 2017 by Elise Matson | 0 comments

As kids we put a lot of thought into our Christmas lists, carefully writing them down, often adding colorful illustrations so the bright toys we wanted popped off the page for everyone to see - especially Santa.

As adults, we lose time to create beautiful Christmas lists. We keep our lists in our head, or we write them on sticky notes, or we focus solely on collecting lists from loved ones and forget our own entirely.

Not this year! This year is the debut of the Metalmark Catalog on our website - complete with a clickable catalog collection list. We are so proud of our carefully curated catalog, complete with magnificent photos, and we sincerely hope you enjoy it!

If you are on our mailing list, you will receive a Metalmark Catalog soon. We also have copies in our store, so come see us soon to shop our catalog in person.


Custom Bridal

Posted on October 08, 2017 by Elise Matson | 0 comments

Hi, Metalmark Family! My name is Elise. I assist Mary and Sam at Metalmark and let me tell you, it has been an absolute pleasure so far!


Especially as a newlywed, I love meeting soon-to-be engaged and newly-engaged couples. It feels like yesterday that I spent weeks gawking at my engagement ring and then my two wedding bands. I understand what a huge, important decision it is to choose the engagement ring and the wedding bands that you or your significant other will cherish forever! Through my own wedding experience and through working here at Metalmark, I have gained valuable knowledge about what to look for when searching for engagement and wedding bands. I would love to share a little bit of that knowledge with you!


SIZE MATTERS

When looking for your ring or for your significant other’s ring, it is helpful to know the size of the finger on which they intend to wear the ring. Every single finger could and likely does have a different size. Sizing your finger or finding out the size of a ring you already have is quick, easy and we’re happy to do it! If it is impossible to find someone’s ring size without spoiling a surprise, though, do not worry. We are happy to resize most bands!


EMBRACE YOUR BUDGET

Embrace your budget! Here at Metalmark, we can customize any of our engagement rings and wedding bands. Don’t give up if one of the rings you love is just out of reach. Let us know that you love it and let us know your budget. We will tell you if we can customize the ring to make it work for you.


ALL DIAMONDS ARE DIFFERENT

There is so much to know about diamonds and I am no expert but thankfully Metalmark has Mary Leppert, our Metalmark Diamond Guru!  Mary has her certification from The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as a Graduate Gemologist and Graduate Jeweler.  The most important thing that I have learned from Mary regarding diamonds is that choosing a diamond is much like choosing a lifelong friend. You wouldn’t call someone your significant other before you were familiar with a few important traits like their name, what they look like, and their strengths and weaknesses would you? Similarly, you should not choose a diamond before you know a few important things: its cut, its clarity, and its color. A diamond’s carat weight matters too,  as well as its inclusions, which are similar to birthmarks or thumbprints. Before you buy your diamond, get to know it! To get to know it, stop into Metalmark or give us a call to schedule an appointment with Mary.


CUSTOMIZE YOUR DREAM RING

When you are ring shopping, you may not find the exact ring you want. Don’t despair! Instead, customize. Stop by Metalmark to get a few, initial ideas or schedule an appointment with Sam or Mary so that they can begin designing your unique dream ring that represents YOU: your unique personality, your unique relationship, and your unique jewelry style.


I hope that these tips have gotten you excited and have made you feel confident that yes, you can get the perfect ring for yourself or for your significant other if you know where and how to look, as well as whom to ask for help.


And I hope that you come see us at Metalmark soon! All of us Metalmark Mavens would be delighted to meet you.

Doesn’t this summer feel like it is flying by? We have been hard at work, alongside our designers, to curate beautiful collections that cater to LoHi’s unique, trend-setting aesthetic. This summer, we feel privileged every day because our vision for Metalmark is succeeding. Not only is our vision succeeding, but it is growing and expanding. We are just getting started and we embrace that, but these last few weeks, we have felt like we’re at the top...

5280 Metalmark Top of the Town

...or at least at the Top of The Town! 5280 awarded Metalmark with Top of The Town for fine jewelry in 2017. We are honored, and we are motivated to bring the “top” to new heights!

5280 Party

Thank you to 5280, to our designers, our friends and our family. And thank you, as well, to our LoHi neighbors who have embraced us. We’re excited to spread Metalmark Magic far and wide. We’re excited to see where the journey will take us!

 

A Metalmark Magical Fourth of July

Posted on June 29, 2017 by Elise Matson | 0 comments

Fourth of July in LoHi is truly magical! If you are planning rooftop firework gazing at Linger, Avanti or El Five, wear some Metalmark Magic to get your party started!  

The Fourth of July Weekend is a great time to try out trendy necklines that will keep you cool in the summer heat, such as the off-the-shoulder neckline or the cold-shoulder neckline.

With a statement neckline, of course, you also need a statement necklace! We adore this structured diamond necklace by Kavant and Sharart. It resembles a starry constellation - perfect for fashionable summer nights!

Metalmark Fine Jewelry Independence Day

With white jeans and a darling clutch, a unique estate ring is a party-time staple, as well! Our yellow gold knot ring with sapphires and diamonds looks like a firework on your finger and will certainly be the belle of your holiday ball!

Start your holiday weekend off early with a glass of wine at Metalmark TODAY! Stop by this evening for sparkles and wine from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM. We can’t wait to see you and to spread some Metalmark Magic through the neighborhood!

Please note, through the weekend, our hours will change. Stop in Saturday to take advantage of our festive, summertime jewels. We will be closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and will reopen at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, 7/5. Happy Independence Day, Everyone!
