Estate

The idea of estate jewelry is romantic in itself – it’s a tiny piece of history that you get to share with someone who lived long before your time. G. Thrapp Jewelers is home to one of the best Estate collections in the Midwest – and the best part is that most of the pieces have been collected from Indianapolis families (as opposed to a trade show). These pieces are one-of-a-kind items encompassing many different time periods. Our Estate case boasts jewelry from the best design houses in the industry such as Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier. Over the years G. Thrapp has sold a variety of Art Deco rings and bracelets, English crystals, Edwardian pins and broaches and Victorian cuff bracelets. Our case is full of unique pendants, broaches, line bracelets and rings.

We have found that pieces from this collection are perfect for the fashion forward woman who has everything. We say that because all the pieces are one-of-a-kind. Women who draw inspiration from different eras are likely to fall in love with our extensive collection of estate jewelry.

Cynthia Ann Hearts

G. Thrapp Jewelers is Cynthia Ann’s number one account in the nation. Last November, we hosted a Cynthia Ann trunk show, and her revitalized vintage heart padlock collection was a best seller. Cynthia Ann introduced the hearts into her collection to bring forward and incorporate a touch of history (as seen in the religious medals). Originally the Antique English padlocks were worn on a bracelet and given to a loved one as a symbol of affection. Before going off to war, gentlemen would leave the bracelet locked around his loved one’s wrist and he would hold the key until his return. The heart shaped padlock was fashionable in the Victorian and Edwardian periods and Cynthia Ann has embellished the locks to bring them into today’s fashionable standards.

The locks are a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for women of all ages. They are more than religious metals; they are also a fashion statement and a token of love. These pieces are great to layer and you can always add on a new charm to your favorite piece! Our buyer, Dana Friedman, wears her heart padlock on a short chain, and wears her Cynthia Ann religious medal on a longer chain. If you desire a complete look or already have a medal and a heart padlock, Cynthia Ann also has lovely medals, earrings, and bracelets that we adore!

 Samantha Louise Earrings

If you’re an avid fan of G. Thrapp Jewelers, you will notice that Samantha Louise practically ALWAYS makes it onto our top gift picks. We love Samantha Louise Jewelry because she’s an Indianapolis native designer, and her collection includes pieces that are great for women of all ages. Sales associate, Mary Leppert said, “Sometimes it can be difficult to find colored stud earrings, but Samantha Louise earrings have an elegant, fresh design that incorporate colors in a way that is unlike anything else in the industry.”

G. Thrapp Jewelers carries a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors but one thing is true of all of them – they are all simple, elegant and very wearable. Perfect for the woman who believes that “simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.”

Bebe&Tay

Unique to G. Thrapp, Bebe & Tay is a distinctive jewelry line created by owner, Gary Thrapp’s wife, Barbi. Since most stones are unique, no two pieces are alike. Her signature line includes healing bracelets using natural stones and charms, featuring trees of life and other religious symbols. Her pieces are trendy and well-priced for those that yearn for the latest jewelry styles, but can’t afford to spend well into the hundreds.

Bebe&Tay’s blush pink pearl bracelets with a pave heart diamond truly embody the spirit of Valentine’s Day. Many wearers of her bracelets like to create a stacked look featuring her creations.

Heather B. Moore

“This collection is not about impulse jewelry; it’s about documenting all that’s important in your life and remembering what shaped you. I am so honored to have the opportunity to make heirloom pieces. And just how all treasured things are passed down through families, this is how your story will be told.” – Heather B. Moore

Whether you are purchasing jewelry for someone young or old, a mother, sister, or daughter, these pieces are great for all ages. Marketing Director, Lauren Bauer, says, “You can truly make a Heather B. Moore necklace your own. I am pretty simple when it comes to jewelry so I chose a short chain with an initial charm, a stone, and a diamond to fit my current taste. In the future, I’ll most likely want to add charms to represent those memories just like Heather B. Moore envisioned.” Like Lauren said, one of the best parts about buying a piece of Heather B. Moore’s charm collection is that you can keep adding on to it, year after year.
