With so many jewelry stores to choose from, it can be hard to decide what gifts are right for you. Jewelry is entirely personal, so it makes sense that how you purchase it would be, too. Do you prefer to speak with someone in person, or browse pieces online? Do you need a variety of styles and options to make a choice? Is the quality more important to you, or the price? All of these questions are entirely dependent on the buyer. Shane Co. is here to help with an in-depth look at what makes our jewelry special.

What Makes Jewelry a Meaningful Gift

Before we discuss how our jewelry is made, let’s answer a seemingly simple question: Why is jewelry the go-to gift for special occasions? Here are a few of our favorite reasons.

The giver

What makes jewelry a meaningful gift? Well, you do, of course! The act of gifting is primarily a moment between two people. The fact that you went out of your way to pick out something you think the receiver will like is sometimes the most sentimental part of gifting. The origin story of a piece can often hold meaning for the wearer. Because of this, the experience and reasoning behind purchasing your gift can make it even more special. Finding a jeweler whose philosophy you respect, and being able to put a face with the jeweler, means you’re adding more meaning to something already imbued with significance.

Designs with symbolism

Jewelry is often a personalized gift that reflects a certain moment in time or particular qualities about the recipient. Choosing a symbolic piece, such as a birthstone necklace or an engraved bracelet, can make it that much more meaningful when your loved one wears it. Symbolism can help spark memories and feelings, and it can even bring the wearer back to the moment you gave it to them.

It lasts forever

Fashion comes and goes. A hat or shirt you purchased for someone may go out of style or get ruined in the wash, fine jewelry is a durable, everlasting gift that withstands the test of time. Even if you’re choosing more on-trend pieces, the classic style of jewelry will always endure through quick changes in fashion and be a gift your loved ones can wear throughout their lives.

Future gifts? Colorful Gemstone Pendants (Mix and Match)

Want to make it extra special? We have customization options that offer a unique touch to already-meaningful gifts. Choose from:

  • Birthstone jewelry: Shop birthstone colors by month for the perfect piece.
  • Custom necklaces: Pick a setting and finish it with their favorite stone.
  • Engraving: We have a wide variety of engravable pieces to personalize with a heartfelt message.
  • Family Collection: Customizable designs with symbolic stones for every family member.
  • Mother & Child pendants: Sentimental styles that highlight the love between a mother and her child.

What Makes Shane Co. Special

At Shane Co., our quality standards go beyond just ensuring a wearable piece. We put a lot of thought into how our jewelry is made, and that’s an important part of our company’s heritage. As a family-owned-and-operated business, we know how important it is to create pieces that are built to last a lifetime. Jewelry is not a gift worn once, then set aside. With four generations of Shane family members dedicated to building a brand that truly cares about their customers, our quality standards continue to be the highest in the industry.

We Travel to the Source

We start every Shane Co. piece with diamonds, rubies, sapphires, pearls and gemstones that are hand-picked for their beauty and value. Every year, Tom Shane spends weeks at a time traveling to Bangkok, Thailand, the gemstone capital of the world, to pick out the best rubies and sapphires for our jewelry.

We directly source all of our gems, which means we buy them directly from the stone cutters. This eliminates all the middlemen and their markups and we pass the savings to our customers. We negotiate prices only after we’ve selected the specific stones we want to buy. Because of our superior buying power, we get first pick of all the newly cut stones. We choose the ones we deem the prettiest in each grade.

Our pearls are cultivated in farms in Asia and the South Pacific. We hand-knot between each pearl on our strands to prevent them from abrading each other and coming loose. Whether you’re picking out a ruby ring, diamond necklace or amethyst pendant, every piece receives the same love and attention, no matter the price.

We value every member of our team for their part in the jewelry-making process. Our world-class design team travels the globe for inspiration from the fashion hubs of the world. Whether you’re looking for fashionable pieces that stand out from the crowd or classic styles that will remain timeless forever, we have thousands of exclusive designs you won’t find anywhere else.
