THE SPRI NG MARKET


Its time to throw open the win-
dows, let in fresh air and start anew. Its
time to call Stevens Jewelers to book
your appointment for their famous
Spring 2012 Makeover Event, the two-
day opportunity where out-of-date
pieces come back to life as todays fash-
ion-forward looks. And with Stevens
hefty 30 percent discount, youll be
bursting into bloom without breaking
the bank.
Its truly a transformation to be-
hold as worn old pieces become new,
explained Don Stevens, owner of the
beloved store on West Broad Street and
Cox Road, across from Innsbrook. Its
a wonderful moment when customers
see their transformed pieces and say, I
never thought it could look so beauti-
ful!
Proud of his stores generations-
long reputation for high quality, Don is
the inspired impresario of the Make-
over Event.
Now is the time to upgrade or
update, he urged. Open your dresser
drawers or go through your vault and
book a time to bring in your old or
worn pieces. Our designers and experts
are ready to help you nd beautiful new
ways to maximize their beauty and
value.
Many customers come in with
out-of-date wedding sets or family
pieces, pointed out store manager
Susan Ware. Well show you fresh,
imaginative ways to showcase them
into stylish engagement rings, wed-
ding rings, fancy and right-hand rings,
pendants, earrings and more.
Tired of yellow gold? Let Stevens
Jewelers mount your gems in fashion-
able platinum, 18-karat white gold or
14-karat gold. We look forward to
showing you the latest styles such as
Halos, Clusters, Split Shanks, Filigrees
and more, explained Don. Or perhaps
a totally custom-made piece has been
your dream? Our talented designers and
craftspeople can create that for you.
The Makeover Event is also a won-
derful opportunity to add value with
additional stones such as to create
a desirable Past, Present, and Future
ring. Stevens Jewelers is renowned for
its selection of diamonds in colors as
glorious as Spring itself: vibrant Yellow,
Blue, and Champagne colorings in the
sought-after Round Brilliant cut.
With the generous Makeover Event
30 percent discount on all diamonds,
gemstones and mountings, your jew-
elry dreams become a reality.
Youll reap the benet of amaz-
ing buys on rubies, sapphires, emer-
alds, diamonds and more, promised
Don. And we offer different payment
options: major credit cards, our own

and interest-free layaway.
