Every woman needs a strand of….

 

You guessed it: Pearls- the birthstone of June and classic, timeless jewelry accessory. Whether dressing for an interview, a formal event, or simply accessorizing your favorite outfit, pearls are a staple jewelry piece. A piece that’s often overlooked, pearls have the power to transform an outfit, and we are HUGE fans of the Old Hollywood glam look.

When envisioning pearl jewelry, most people picture the traditional strand of white pearls worn by icons such as Coco Chanel and Grace Kelly. But the size, shape and color of pearls can vary greatly depending on where the pearl was grown. Below you will see images of both uniform strands (all pearls are approximately the same size and shape) and graduated strands (shape of the pearl will vary). To learn more about pearls, visit the American Gem Society’s website.

We suggest that if you don’t have a set of pearls- earrings, bracelet, necklace, etc.- that you head to the jewelry store nearest you (unless it doesn’t happen to be G. Thrapp Jewelers because who are we kidding.. we want you to shop here). At G. Thrapp Jewelers, there’s no shortage of pearl designer jewelry. Pearls are incorporated into the elaborate collections of Bebe&Tay, Yvel, Konstantino, Mizuki and more.

To inquire about any of the pieces in this blog, please contact Lauren at (317)255-5555.

Behind the Scenes…

 

Yesterday, G. Thrapp hosted our third photo shoot for our “Take A Stand” campaign. The “Take A Stand” advertising campaign is our way of showcasing philanthropic organizations throughout our community that are doing their part to make Indianapolis a better, more “radiant” place to live. G. Thrapp was built upon the premise of being civically minded, and for 30 years, we have always done our part to help out in the community whether it is with donations, attending the events, etc. We are honored to be able to lend our advertising space in both Indianapolis Monthly and Sophisticated Living to these worthy organizations in hopes that it will raise awareness about their cause and G. Thrapp’s love for our Indianapolis community. In 2013, we donated over $150,000 to local organizations including the organizations featured in our “Take A Stand” campaign.

The employees at G. Thrapp help select the philanthropic organizations we partner with and highlight each month. Yesterday’s photo shoot included Jessica Benson Cox, Board member of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and co-chair of the upcoming Promise Gala hosted by JDRF. During our chat with Jessica, she said, “as a new mother, I stress about little things like clipping my baby’s nails and I couldn’t imagine having to give my child a shot every day.” Jessica spoke passionately about how she personally is striving for a cure for Juvenile Diabetes and a world where mothers don’t have to give their children anymore shots. Find Jessica’s picture and information about JDRF’s Promise Gala in the March/April issue of Sophisticated Living and the April issue of Indianapolis Monthly!

The Indianapolis 500 Festival Queen, Allison Jacob, was also at G. Thrapp today for the photo shoot. Allison is one of 33 collegiate women that were selected to serve as ambassadors for the 500 Festival, raising awareness about all of the activities tied to the Festival throughout the month of May. Allison looked fabulous wearing the Queen’s crown which was custom-designed and hand fabricated by G. Thrapp’s Design Studio. G. Thrapp is extremely honored to be able to work with the princesses year after year as the official jeweler of the 500 Festival Princess Program. Look for Allison’s debut in Indianapolis Monthly during the month of May!

We would like to thank Do-tique and Krystal Goodwine of Allier Beauty for doing an extraordinary job on Jessica and Allison’s hair and makeup! We hope our models enjoyed their day of pampering as much as we enjoyed spreading the word about their respective organizations. Here is a sneak peak of the amazing photos:
