WORTHMORE IS 25!!!!!!
That is such a surreal fact for both Harris and me. We started our business, along with family and friends, when we were pretty young. I’d like to say that we were in our teens, but, it was more like our late 20’s. Below is a picture of how Worthmore Jewelers looked when we first opened. Then, fast forward to the photo of how we look now. Wow, what a wild ride it’s been.
So, this month, August, has been a very special one for us. Not only is Worthmore turning 25, but, we have also been awarded a special recognition by our wonderful jewelry industry. We have been named Jeweler Of The year by the 24kt Club of the Southeast. This recognition is overwhelming and humbling to us. The 24kt Club of the Southeast is comprised of jewelry designers, manufacturers, journalists, and all other support aspects of the jewelry industry. What is special about the Southeast division of the 24Kt Club, is they have a strong focus on education. They award thousands of dollars every year to people in the jewelry industry who are interested in furthering their education through schools like GIA (Gemological Institution of America) and DCA (Diamond Council of America). This is especially important to Worthmore, because many of our co-workers have received the scholarships and have successfully completed many courses.

One might ask, how do you plan on celebrating your 25th anniversary????
Well, on Saturday August 25th and Sunday August 26th, we are enjoying the company (and the beautiful treasures) of 2 very special new “Worthmore” designers.’
The first is Beverley K. What you will see from them will be lots and lots of diamond and colored stone stack bands. As well as beautiful diamond and colored stone rings and jewelry with a vintage feeling…So, come and get your chance to meet the owner and lead designer.
The second company is also a new to Worthmore, Sophia by Design. Their treasures range from updated diamond to colored stone jewelry. We already have a beautiful selection in store… but, you’ll be able to view A LOT more!! If you’re anything like me, more is always FUN 😊
We’ll also be serving our world-famous rum punch… YES, it is world famous! There will be other libations as well and yummy treats from The Highland Bakery. (We ALWAYS keep it local when possible.)

Now, if you know us and have been to our events in the past, you’ll know that we like to give back a percentage of sales from a designer event to a charity. For our 25th anniversary, we will be donating the money towards Heart Of The Brain. Heart Of The Brain is a community of patients, doctors, donors, and supporters working toward improving treatment and curing brain cancer. If this is of interest to you, please check out their website www.HOTB.org . We also, encourage you to join us and either buy something from our designers and/or you can buy a raffle ticket which will go towards a chance to win a special piece from them.
