At G. Thrapp Jewelers, we pride ourselves on introducing the newest upcoming designer jewelry lines to the Indianapolis market. We set our sights on finding niche lines to assure that we are constantly on the cusp of fashion jewelry trends. With that, we’d like to present to you a designer jewelry line worn- and adored- by the likes of Chrissy Teigen, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Garner, Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez and more… Dana Rebecca Designs.

Designer Dana Rebecca is inspired by creating jewelry that can be worn everyday rather than only on special occasions. The simple elegance of her pieces reflect her goal perfectly. Indianapolis, prepare to fall in love with our first shipment of Dana Rebecca jewelry. Now available at G. Thrapp Jewelers.

Martin Flyer’s Bridal Party Preview

 

 

Since you’ll be browsing the largest selection of Martin Flyer inventory we’ll have in store this year at our Bridal Party on April 19th, we thought you might like to know some information about the brand, and of course, view some photos of their incredible engagement rings.

Martin Flyer opened its doors more than 65 years ago and is one of the most recognizable names in the jewelry industry today. Now based in a 10,000 square foot facility in Manhattan’s diamond district, the family business continues to carry out the Flyer tradition of providing customers with the highest quality products, competitive prices, and first class service.

Martin Flyer’s FlyerFit line was created in 2006. FlyerFit rings seek to eliminate “the dreaded gap” that exists between the engagement ring and the wedding band so the two rings fit together perfectly.

Martin Flyer engagement rings are broken down by five categories: Three Stone, Solitaire, Shared Prong, Micro Pave and Channel in order to simplify the buying process. Pick your favorite! There are images of all five categories below.

We LOVE These Jewelry Storage Ideas!

 

Sure, jewelry boxes are okay, but how about something that can brighten up your room or make for more unique jewelry storage. We went next door to Be the Boutique, and gathered any type of stand, bowl or tray we could find. We had so much fun experimenting with these brightly colored pieces. We made sure to list what we used in the making of the jewelry storage display as well as the designer jewelry photographed underneath each image. As you can see, things like mirrors, cake platters, coffee cups, measuring cups and even candle holders can make for surprisingly great jewelry holders! (This could also be a wonderful gift idea!)

Of course, after you visit Be the Boutique at 56th & Illinois for your jewelry storage purchase, be sure to stop G. Thrapp Jewelers and buy some jewelry to fill that storage!

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:

For the Whimsical Woman…

MTLOGO

It is no surprise that Megan Thorne has been featured in Vogue, Brides and Lucky. Her creations are instantly recognizable because they combine whimsical, antique and contemporary design into a truly unique piece. Because of the intimate size of the operation, Thorne touches every piece and she enjoys connecting with every couple as their personal stories shape the design of their rings. It is this intimacy with her craft and materials that brings forth the integrity of every piece.

Her bridal collection is perfect for women who have an appreciation for art and intricacy. She is not afraid to go against the grain and break the rules of the “traditional” engagement rings. The wearer of a Megan Thorne ring wants something that is uniquely her own.

Sales associate, Julie Wilson said, “Women are really drawn to Megan Thorne, they love her pieces and they tend to come back looking to add to their collection. Most of the pieces we sell at G. Thrapp are yellow or rose gold.”

Sales Associate, Michelle Farmer loves Megan Thorne’s designs because they are so incredibly unique. Her favorite ring is the emerald cut, picture frame ring because of its feminine, unique setting. It doesn’t look like anything else in the market.

Sales Associate and Watch Specialist, Joshua Shanafelt said, “I love the style of Megan Thorne’s engagement collection. Surprisingly enough, a few of my clients have reset their original diamond into a Megan Thorne ring and worn it as a right hand ring. They usually will then purchase a larger carat weight diamond for their original engagement ring.”
