Topazery Jewelry Reviews its First Decade as an Online Antique Jewelry Boutique - Beaumont Enterprise

Having recently celebrated 10 years of selling vintage and antique jewelry on the web, Topazery Jewelry reviews its accomplishments over the last decade. A celebrity first sale, a move to the big city and a feature spotlight on primetime TV are just some of the highlights the company has experienced since its humble beginnings.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 07, 2012

The tenth anniversary of Topazery Jewelry has prompted the online jewelry boutique to review its accomplishments over the past ten years of selling vintage and antique jewelry on the web. That retrospective reveals the company’s humble beginnings, its first celebrity customer, a major relocation, a TV spotlight, several expansions in antique style jewelry offerings and rolling with the punches as the World Wide Web changed and evolved.

When Topazery first opened its doors in 2001, the company operated out of an antiques mall in Charlotte, N.C. Back then, its focus was on antique furnishings and accessories, with only a small selection of jewelry comprising its inventory. In October 2002, Topazery founder, Jan Walden, decided to take her antique concept to the then still-in-its-infancy web and shift the focus to jewelry. That move was a calculated risk, with the notion of doing business entirely online still a novel and unproven model. “When we began selling online, didn’t exist and (the largest online retailer in the world) had just announced its first profitable year,” Walden explains.

With a starting budget of less than $1,000, debuted with a mere five antique and vintage rings up for sale. “As Topazery Jewelry reviews its first 10 years, it’s hard to believe the website had a total of just three pages in its infancy: Home, About and Jewelry,” Walden reminisces. Despite its Spartan ambience, however, the site’s sought-after antique jewelry offerings quickly attracted an audience. In fact, the first person to purchase a piece from the company’s online inventory was an acclaimed NBC news correspondent.

From there, business took off, prompting Walden in 2005 to pack up and relocate Topazery Jewelry’s headquarters from Charlotte to Atlanta. “That year we expanded our jewelry offerings and added a special selection of new antique style jewelry from several designers.”

That wouldn’t be the first time the company would take its focus in a new direction. In 2007, Topazery stopped offering jewelry designed by others and began focusing on its own line: The Topazery Collection. That same year, a Victorian style sapphire and diamond ring from Topazery was chosen for NBC’s hit drama TV series, “Crossing Jordan.” Airing in February 2007, the episode, which was titled “Mr. Little and Mr. Big,” prominently featured an elegant sapphire and diamond ring from Topazery Jewelry as part of its storyline.

Today, Topazery Jewelry is still a small online boutique with the same personalized attention to detail it provided in 2002. In the 10 years since then, however, the company’s professional team has expanded to include master jewelers, appraisers, gemologists, a writer, a webmaster and a photographer. In that respect, Topazery fully leverages all the benefits an online working environment affords.

“Because we all work out of our homes or private offices, I’ve been able to bring in the best professionals from all over the country without requiring them to uproot and move to Atlanta. I also don’t have to maintain a brick-and-mortar shop and wrestle with all the extra tasks that entails,” Walden relates.

Its online presence also allows Topazery Jewelry to put a full library of educational pages at its customers’ fingertips. As a result, they can learn about antique jewelry, diamonds and gemstones without ever leaving the comfort of their own homes. That educational focus is paying off for the company. And with its antique and vintage jewelry pieces ranging in price from under $100 to $15,000, everyone can find something special to fit their budget.

Hendersonville Antique Car Club donates to HonorAir -

The event, held on Memorial Day weekend, was a benefit car show in support of local veterans and HonorAir.

The club registered 91 cars from as far away as Mauldin and Anderson, S.C. and Franklin and Hickory. The club hosted a Poker Walk, along with a 50/50.

In the end, the club raised $1,600 that was presented to Jeff Miller, president of HonorAir, at the club's monthly meeting Tuesday at Bay Breeze Seafood Restaurant in Hendersonville.

All of the money collected through registration and the 50/50 was donated to HonorAir. Rumbling Bald Resort and the Hendersonville Antique Car Club paid for the Representative Military Trophies together.

Honor Air has been working with veterans for more than six years, initially taking World War II veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the World War II Memorial. Since then, HonorAir has worked with ABCCM in assisting homeless veterans and AB Tech in retraining vets for occupations in civilian life.

All of the money received by HonorAir is used for veterans. There are no administrative fees or salaries taken. Most recently, HonorAir escorted Vietnam veterans to Charlotte Motor Speedway for a long overdue "Welcome Home."

When he presented the check to Miller, Car Club President Bruce Hatfield said the club wanted to do something for local veterans, and Miller's work through HonorAir was the best organization to ensure their needs were addressed.

“We were a little concerned that we had scheduled the car show on Memorial Day Weekend," Hatfield said. "But after seeing the turnout at only the second Spring Show at Rumbling Bald, the veterans wearing items displaying their respective services, the American flags adorning the cars, which were donated by club member Dave Walden, we will be back again next year, same timeframe and location. It could not have worked out any better.”

Miller received a standing ovation from the club members as he received the check.
