  1. Celebrating Our Customers

    It may sound like a tired cliché, but when we say “we love our customers,” we really mean it. You guys are the reason we are here and the reason we get to come to work everyday to do what we love. So, naturally, when it was time to start refreshing our showroom, we wanted to feature  you, our faithful customers. We asked some of our past engagement rings clients to send us their favorite wedding and engagement photos for our wall. Walking by and seeing the smiling faces is a great reminder each day that an engagement ring is more than just a piece of jewelry. It’s a beginning, a symbol, a part of someone. We feel privileged to... read more »

  3. Buy jewelry with Apple Pay

    Buy Jewelry with Your iPhone

    People have been wearing jewelry for almost as long as there have been people. But, the way we pay for jewelry is constantly changing. Today, we are excited to announce that Arden Jewelers now accepts Apple Pay and other contactless payment methods! Keeping your identify safe and private is a top priority for us. So, we have recently upgraded our card processing equipment to enable industry standard security features. Along with the security upgrade, the new equipment allows us to process Apple Pay, contactless cards, and EMV cards (commonly known as Chip-and-PIN or Chip-and-Signature cards). As a side note, if your credit card company has recently issued you a new EMV card, now is a good time to check if... read more »

  4. Jewelry repair before and after

    The Magic of Jewelry Repair

    The best part of any makeover show is the reveal. After all of the hard work and bumps along the way, we finally get to see the finished product. As local jewelry repair experts, we get to experience this great moment everyday. We see jewelry that’s taken all kinds of abuse. Earrings that have been flattened by car tires, engagement rings that have done battle with the garbage disposal, pendants that have been soaked in every household chemical known to man, and more have all crossed our doors. And, the best part of our day comes when we get to reveal this jewelry after it’s been repaired, reconditioned, and restored to its owner. We wanted to share some of this... read more »

  6. Caveat Emptor - Be aware of terms of your warranty

    Warranty Woes and the Value of On-Site Repairs

    Chalk this one up to the “It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad” category. We recently had a customer visit the shop to get some repairs done on a piece of jewelry she had purchased at a certain big box store that shall remain nameless. This is a fairly regular occurrence at our shop for two main reasons: We are known locally for having one of the largest and most well-equipped jewelry repair facility in Sacramento, CA. We have invested thousands of dollars in high-end equipment like our laser welder, so that we can do complicated repairs in-house. And, we have a team of highly experienced and skilled jewelers. Many big-box and chain jewelers outsource their repairs. This... read more »

    News 10, Diamond Prices, and Shopping Local

Believe it or not, shopping at a local jeweler like us can actually save you quite a bit over a big retail chain. We'll explain how... read more »
