Why We Love Beads & Bracelets

As the Girls of Crocker’s we are crazy about our beads and our bracelets. We can’t get enough. You can stack them, they evolve with you, and when you’re craving a change you can mix them up. If that’s not the definition of the perfect accessory, than we don’t know what is.

While there are plenty of bracelet designers out there, not all are created equal. If you’re looking to accessorize in a way that’s fashionable, meaningful, and expressive we suggest that you check out Pandora and Alex and Ani. From the Girls of Crocker’s, here is why these to brands get our stamp of approval …

 Some of us are Pandora girls …

IMG_1058“I love Pandora because every piece is created to well suit everyone’s style and age. My favorite piece from my Pandora collection is my bracelet. All my charms are gifts from my loved ones. It makes it significantly special knowing I can take a piece from them every day with me. It’s very tasteful, and each charm is hand-finished; which means to me that Pandora takes delight in their collection as much as I take pride in my own. Overall, I love Pandora because it expresses every woman’s individuality and creates special moments with people we cherish.” ~Jennifer

Others can’t get enough of Alex and Ani

Unknown-2“I love Alex and Ani because each bracelet has the potential to be sentimental to someone. Alex and Ani bracelets are not only fashionable, each one represents an emotion or an event going on in someone’s life. I wear mine every day, and they remind me of the sweet people that bought them for me and the many meanings in the game of life. Jewelry is just an accessory without meaning, but Alex and Ani represents memories and bright days ahead.” ~ Kandle

“I love Alex and Ani because I love their eco-friendly and charitable mission. The bracelets are hypo-allergenic, so anyone can wear them. Every person is different, so you will never see two sets that are the same.” ~ Emily

“I love Alex and Ani because of the individual meanings they all have. You can create your own story on your wrist. I think that is really special. Whether you are supporting your favorite football team or celebrating the birth of a new baby, Alex and Ani has a bracelet for every occasion.” ~Shayna

And some of us spread our love equally …

The Best Of Texarkana: According to Lauren

Ahh, Texarkana. While there is plenty to do around here, when I think about my ideal day there are a handful of places that stand out. Of course they include food, ice cream, bling and shopping. Really, can you blame a girl? For the best of Texarkana, according to moi, read on my friends …

TJ Maxx: There’s no doubt about it. I’m a Maxxinista. If it’s my day off, or my lunch hour, you can almost guarantee that I’ll be at TJ Maxx. It’s the perfect place to buy gifts, and hunt for the latest seasonal trends. Whatever I’m looking for, TJ Maxx always seems to have it. High five to the rest of the Maxxinista’s out there.

IMG_1325On The Border: AHHHHH Arribba Arribba! All I  have to say is CHIPS and SALSA, one of my favorite combinations ever created. And, let’s not forget their awesome queso and fajitas. Yumm. Hands down, On The Border is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Texarkana, and beyond. If you’re ever headed that way, give me a call and I will meet you there.

FullSizeRender(5)Holiday Springs Water Park: I love this place for much more than the water slides. Did you know that they have DIPPIN’ DOTS!? I’ll admit it, I often visit the water park and head straight there. Once I have my space-aged ice cream in hand, I turn around and leave. No bathing suit. No water slides. Just Dippin’ Dots. Needless to say, I am hooked. My favorite flavor is Cookies N’ Cream…what’s yours?

My Family Home: Home is where the heart is. As much as I love to be out and about, my absolute favorite place to be is home, with my family. There’s just such a good feeling about pulling up to the house I grew up in and walking through the front door and hearing “Hey honey how was your day?” Plus, those home cooked meals are an added bonus!

FullSizeRender(4)Crocker’s Jewelers: When I started working at Crocker’s Jewelers, almost 3 years ago, I instantly felt like a part of the family. I’m happy to call Crocker’s my home away from home. I love my coworkers and our customers and couldn’t imagine not seeing them everyday!

And, now I’m craving Dippin’ Dots. Does anyone want to join me?

I’ve Got A Crush

So, I have a confession. I’ve got a crush on Forevermark Diamonds. I am so in love with these rocks, I find myself looking at them and wearing them whenever I get a break during the day.

I just can’t get enough.

You might be wondering what the big deal is. After all aren’t all diamonds rare and beautiful? Let me tell you what makes Forevermark Diamonds the best diamonds:

  • Less than 1% of the world’s diamonds are eligible to become a Forevermark diamond, so you know your are getting a rock that is both rare and stunning.
  • Take it from me, I see diamonds all the time. There are no other stones out there as sparkly or radiant as Forevermark diamonds.
  • Each diamond comes with a unique Identification number inscribed in the heart of the diamond. This allows you to register the diamond, creating a family heirloom that can be passed on for generations.
  • Forevermark diamonds are responsibly sourced, so that you can wear it with pride knowing that it benefited the community where the diamond was born.
  • When you buy a Forevermark diamond you can walk away knowing that you not only got a beautiful stone, but you got it at a great value.

If you want to see a Forevermark Diamond for yourself stop by the Crocker’s Jewelers store in Texarkana, TX. We are honored that DeBeers chose Crocker’s to be the exclusive Forevermark dealer in our area. And personally, I would love to show you these beautiful rocks!
