Permanent jewelry store comes to Stephenville
By: Sierra Wells
Offering a variety of unique jewelry pieces, Juniper Jewelry Bar will open in Stephenville on July 27.
“The goal of Juniper Jewelry Bar is to provide a local place for people to have a shared experience to celebrate something special,” owner Emily Griffin said. “You can bring whoever you’d like to have a ‘permanent’ reminder of your relationship or a special moment, like a birthday or wedding.”
Customers can choose from a selection of permanent jewelry items they can customize with charms.
“The process is completely customizable, quick and painless. When you come to our store you can grab a glass of champagne, choose what kind of chain you’d like and add any charms we have available,” Griffin said. “We will custom fit your bracelet or anklet and with a quick flash of a light, weld it on so it stays in place until you’re ready to remove it. We do offer clasps as well for athletes, nurses, etc. who may need to remove them.”
Along with their permanent selection, Juniper Jewelry Bar plans to include other jewelry, accessories and Tarleton State University sorority merchandise.
“We are one of the only places in town that will sell sorority merchandise. I have some of the cutest hats, jewelry, cups, water bottles, buttons and so much more for all 5 sororities at Tarleton,” Griffin said. “Since Juniper is all about celebrating friendships, and sororities are groups built on friendship, I wanted to be a one-stop-shop for that as well.”
Business hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday. However, those seeking permanent pieces must schedule an appointment first.
Prices will vary based on items purchased but costs start at $35. Anklets will cost $20 more than the cost of a bracelet.
“We do offer group discounts – when you come in and purchase six or more pieces with friends you will get 10% off,” Griffin said.
Juniper Jewelry Bar also offers private events and will occasionally have pop-up events around town.
“Our first pop up is scheduled at the Hico Mercantile on September 22 for a Girl’s Night Out. I’m really hoping to get in contact with some of the sororities so we can plan recruitment and sisterhood events as well,” Griffin said.
Community members who attend the grand opening will be treated with free snacks and champagne.
