All That Glitters: Shane Co.


My grandma has always been a stylish diva who never went anywhere without a pair of earrings, a ring or two on each hand and her wedding ring.  One of my most fondest memories as a child was rummaging through my grandmother's jewelry armoire.  When my grandparents first married they had an account with Shane Co. and many of the pieces in her jewelry armoire came from Shane Co.  


As a picked out through the pieces, I stood in amazement as my grandma would recount when the  piece was purchased and any special occasions associated with the piece.  Sapphires and diamonds, platinum and pearls, each piece had a story of its own.  

Much like my grandma, my mom has always had a love of fine jewelry.  Although her initial jewels were merely her wedding rings, as I grew older, her  jewelry collection grew.  My mom has small, dainty hands and long fingernails much like a hand model. Although her bridal set was to be admired, it was her pearls that I adored most.  


I remember a middle school dance and my mom letting me borrow her beloved "real" strand of pearls necklace and earring set.  As she closed the clasp of her treasured strand of precious pearls around my neck, I felt so pretty.

I think I was about 14 years old or so when she gifted me with my first set of pearl earrings.  My mom believed a young lady should own at least one pair of pearl earrings.  I still have one of the pearl earrings in my jewelry box.   I misplaced one of my beloved pearls years ago, but managed to hold on to one of them which I keep in my jewelry box.  

Pearls have been my go to fashion item for decades. Eternal and timeless, pearls never go out of style! Shane Co. cultured pearls are matched by hand for exceptional luster.


My daughter, the "Little Old Lady", just as I, finds her grandma's jewelry box to be a treasure trove.  One day, I pray, she too will be a mom and my granddaughter will come to my home and find my jewelry box to be full of treasures.  I wonder what tales I'll share as she digs through my jewelry box.  I'm sure I'll tell her the story of my first strand of pearls when she finds that one, lone pearl earring.  

Timeless.  A beautiful piece of jewelry transcends time and begets tradition and Shane Co. has been a part of my family for years and will be for years to come.
