Owner Lonnie Iannazzo carries multiple, well-known lines of jewelry with items for both men and women. Virtually any item in the store would make a great gift for your Valentine, while at the same time making it easy on you as you choose the perfect gift.
One of the perennial gift favorites is the Pandora line that includes bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pendants, rings and charms. With the combination of Pandora bracelets and the collection of matching jewelry, you’re at liberty to create a personal look as you recall the most memorable moments shared with your Valentine. Geared towards love, there are several heart-themed charms to choose from.
If you’re seeking a gift for your man, check out Vincent Anthony’s great selection of William Henry Studio limited edition collector knives, money clips, and writing instruments. He’s guaranteed to be pleased with a gift from this outstanding collection.
Chocolate diamonds are still very hot items, and Vincent Anthony carries a great selection of earrings, pendants and rings. And whenever and whatever gift you purchase, it will be gift wrapped at no cost.
Lonnie says Valentine’s Day is still one of the most popular dates for getting engaged or married. If you’re shopping rings, Vincent Anthony has an outstanding selection of loose diamonds and mountings that can be combined to complete your own personalized ring set. “We have diamonds in any shape and size,” says Lonnie, “and with our own master craftsman, we provide the highly-skilled craft of fully custom designed jewelry.”
Custom designs may be created with a diamond from Vincent Anthony, or you may choose to use diamonds or gem stones you’ve inherited. Bring in your simple sketch, photo, or just discuss your idea with Lonnie, and they will finalize a design to your satisfaction. “We cast and set stones in custom designed pieces that we anticipate will exceed the highest expectations of our customers,” says Lonnie.
Jewelry is probably the most popular choice for Valentine’s Day giving. According to Lonnie, Vincent Anthony Jewelers has some great gift ideas starting at about the same price as you’d pay for a dozen long-stemmed roses. Think about this: roses last about a week, whereas jewelry lasts lifetimes when passed down from generation to generation.
Vincent Anthony also provides in-store jewelry repair for your convenience. For peace of mind, your valuable jewelry items never have to leave the store or be shipped away for repairs or sizing. It’s all done at the store.
