  • Rain Jewelry Store Spotlight: Island Supply

     

    Compass Pointe Put-In-Bay

    Island Supply, located on South Bass Island (in the village of Put-in-Bay, Ohio) has been a loyal wholesale customer of Rain Jewelry Collection for over 10 years.

    Compass Pointe:

    Island Supply, LLC, operates Compass Pointe, 5 retail stores on a single property with a marketplace feel.  You will find Rain and other jewelry and gifts at The Little Store, resort clothing at Dock 421, home decor items at Home Port, Christmas ornaments at Happy Holidays and hardware at Island Hardware. Aside from the the hardware store the stores are only open in the summer since Lake Erie freezes over in winter.  There are 500 year-round residents but in summer this number can be upwards of one million! In the summer the stores are open 7 days a week 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. We love this fun, colorful and unique shopping venue where you are sure to find something that must go home with you, a great way to remember your summer adventure to this special place.

    Rain Jewelry Collection and The Little Store: 

    The Little Store is an excellent one stop shop for Rain Jewelry Collection bracelets, earrings, necklace sets and rings. You can roll with the island vibes and select a style from our nautical collection to take home or choose a classic Rain style perfect for a dinner out after a long day on the lake.

  • Let it Rain - How Rain Jewelry Collection Strives to Make a Difference

    Rain In Mahammadapuram

    As we roll through the 21st century, water scarcity continues to threaten large communities of people in the developing world. Mahammadapuram, a small village in the State of Telegana India, has found itself in the middle of this narrative. With water already stretched thin for use in agriculture, this community has historically struggled to balance their water needs while living in a drought prone region. When Rain chose to partner with Queen Esther’s Closet to help provide these people with improved water security, it was effort well needed as water is foundation to these villager’s survival and ability to thrive. Through our partnership and the incredible work of Queen Esther’s Closet, the village engaged a new water pump on April 9th, 2016.

    It Takes A Village

    As Sammakka fills a huge pot full of water and deftly swoops it to the top of her petite frame, she recounts how she has needed to rely on a government tap that is unreliable on its best days. The regular water she will now get from the pump will represent a huge improvement in the lives of her children and large extended family. Sammakka thanks those who donated such a gift “for their love” and carefully balancing the pot of water on her head walks away from the well shepherding her children in front of her. In vibrant saris all the women of the village balance large ceramic pots over their shoulders and take turns pulling clear water from the earth below their land, an act that promises good things to come in this close-knit village of 2000. The plaque on the base of the well seems to echo this feeling; against a sky-blue foundation, the pump declares, “Let it Rain!”.

    Rain or Shine, A Charitable Partnership

    Queen Esther’s Closet is not your run-of-the-mill consignment shop. Run out of an almost 4,000 square foot upscale boutique thrift store located in beautiful Broomfield, Colorado, their mission is to dedicate all net proceeds to help fund water wells in impoverished countries; it is a mission that is close to our hearts. Rain Jewelry Collection is honored to be in the position as a wholesale jewelry supplier to help provide fresh water to those in need. We continue to partner with Queen Ester's Closet and seek other opportunities where our jewelry can make a difference.

  • How to Extend the Life of Your Fashion Jewelry:

     

    We all love fashion jewelry but we all know that sometimes, it doesn’t last as long as fine jewelry. Our team of wholesale jewelry experts can offer a few tips to stop your fashion jewelry from tarnishing, breaking and dulling so you can enjoy your fashion jewelry for many years to come.

    Use the “Last on, First off” rule. Think of your jewelry as the icing on the cake, it’s the finishing layer of your outfit. Get in the habit of putting your jewelry on last as you’re on the way out the door. As you are winding down for the day, make sure you remove your Rain Jewelry first and store it away safely. Making this a habit prevents unwanted snags on your clothes and protects your Rain Jewelry from cosmetics. Hair, makeup and perfume products contain ingredients like alcohol which will corrode finish coatings and cause discoloration.

    How you store your jewelry is important. It’s tempting to hang your necklaces from pegs or display your earring collection but it’s important to realize air and UV rays can break down finishes, tarnish the appearance of metal, weaken elastic and dull bright colors over time. Store your fashion jewelry in a dry, dark place individually in plastic bags or with moisture absorbing pads. Never store your jewelry in a bathroom or area which is exposed to prolonged moisture.

    When not to wear fashion jewelry: Keeping your fashion jewelry dry is very important. Never wear your Rain Jewelry when swimming, bathing or cleaning. Put your jewelry away in a locker at the gym, over time excessive sweat can break down finishes and change metal color. As a rule of thumb, don’t wear your fashion jewelry anywhere or while doing any activity that you wouldn’t also wear your favorite shoes or a designer handbag.

    Most importantly, enjoy your fashion jewelry and have fun wearing it! It’s so affordable, you can always buy more J

  • A Little Retail Therapy

    Blog Image Template Option 4

     

    I don’t know about you, but once the weather gets chilly, I immediately start to think about the holidays. The month of October always flies by and then, sure enough, it’s Thanksgiving. Then, of course, what is next but some serious gift-giving holidays. Personally, when I find myself shopping for gifts, I tend to end up using the time for some (usually well-deserved!) retail therapy!

    Oniochalasia - this is the actual term for retail therapy (yes, there is a word). I feel validated knowing that this is an actual thing and not just a mythical act that generations of savvy shoppers have dreamed up. Knowing this makes it feel more...okay, right? But, seriously, what better time to have some “therapy sessions” than around the holidays. And what better way to get those holiday party outfits to be just right than to accessorize them with some fantastic accessories!

    I love the new Rain Jewelry Collection Holiday Style guide because it contains some really great pieces. Black dresses are my go-to for parties and I always enjoy a piece of jewelry that stands out nicely against or next to black. I love the SILVER DRUZY TEARDROP EARRING for times when I don’t want to wear a statement necklace. This earring stands out with just the right amount of sparkle. The way these earrings dangle with every move - therapy right there, my friends. Another great holiday piece that will surely win over any shopper in search of a fix is the MULTICOLORED BLACK WIRE NECKLACE SET - earrings and a necklace! I love this as it’s festive for the holidays, but can be worn with many different colors all year round.

    Another reason why I love a little bit of retail therapy thrown into my holiday shopping is that it gives me a chance to visualize how I can wear different pieces with the same outfit. As a creative person, I love to express myself through what I wear; jewelry is a great way to maximize my wardrobe because I can change my outfits with a simple (or not so simple) piece! I could even wear the same dress to every holiday party I go to (if I so dared!) and just switch out my tear drop earring for the GOLD SQUARE LONG FRINGE EARRING .

    The bottom line here is that a little retail therapy during the busy holiday shopping season is never a bad idea. Just make sure you don’t forget to get everyone on your list their special something(s). I know, for the important ladies in my life, I will be doing most of my shopping at Rain Jewelry Collection. Just like Aunt Joanne says, “fit and finish!”
