Season’s Greetings everyone! Yes, we are all probably thinking right now, where did that year go?
It’s been a very busy year at Fifth Avenue, with many great celebrations of life, and work trips away, including an invitation to attend one of the world’s largest diamond cutting factories. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and has led to a very nice relationship with them.
We’ve had customers and staff share their celebrations with us; we’ve had weddings, special anniversaries and one of our own leading ladies in store announced she is expecting her first child. Lots of lovely and exciting things have happened this year, and we hope that 2018 was a very kind year to you also.
We love what we do, we love our customers and the people we interact with on “both sides of the counter”. We are in the “people business”; we just happen to sell jewellery.
Being invited to share in our clients’ significant moments is really quite special and, without sounding like a “softie”, it’s a warm-fuzzy moment.
One such example was an evening in early September. We had a couple come in for an “after hours” appointment. It was dark outside and the ambient lighting within the store had set the tone for what was an enjoyable experience from both our perspectives. It was for a “special” birthday, and the brief was to make a “special” diamond bracelet.
We made the bracelet, and it was a lovely surprise for the recipient. Several days later, I received the nicest email; it was from the lucky, and now very proud, wearer of the bracelet. It was beautifully worded and filled with such lovely sentiments. But the nicest and most rewarding thing about it, was not the fact that she had sent such a lovely email, but the fact that we had made them both feel so special when they left that initial evening, and again when the purchased presented the bracelet to the recipient in-store. That, for us, is the biggest reward!
We just love bringing dreams to life and making people happy.
If we can do that for you this Christmas, come and see us, and let us take all the stress out of it for you. We have something to suit everyone, and there’ll be no disappointments. We’ve been busy at the bench, making up a fantastic range of diamond studs, pendants and a lovely range of coloured gemstone jewellery, and diamond tennis bracelets.
For those of you who would like a bit of luxury in your life this Christmas, our range of Gucci fine jewellery will certainly put a “smile on the dial” on Christmas Day, with gifts starting from $259.
And ladies, if you’re looking for inspiration for the leading men in your lives, you can’t go past MontBlanc for a beautifully presented gift. We have a fantastic range of gifts for guys, like key rings, passport holders, wallets, belts (believe me, you’d only need to own one of these belts, and you’d never need to buy another). Of course, there are their famous pens, and watches.
If you’re stuck for ideas, or if you’d like to get a little more “creative”, come in and talk to us, we have lots of great gift suggestions and, of course, we specialise in custom designed and handmade pieces (but please don’t leave it too late!).
From all of us here at Fifth Avenue….. Adrian, Gail, Hannah, Kirstin, Lisa and Eden, we wish you all a wonderful, safe and happy Christmas. Thank you all for your support and patronage though out the year and we wish you all the best for a great 2019!
