I AM THE SONG OF LYRA. I AM ONE OF ONE. THE EXCEPTIONAL DIAMOND COLLECTION


achary’s Story This is the fourth year we’ve put out this magazine and we think it’s the best one yet. The magazine is our opportunity to share a little bit more about ourselves, so you never feel like you are shopping with a stranger. I’m always very proud of our team, but was recently reminded of this when my youngest niece, Katherine, worked for us this summer. She was guided by smart, strong women and men who care deeply about what they do every day and have a passion for taking care of the people we are grateful to call our customers. The magazine is also a chance for us to highlight trends we’ve noticed, and this year the trend we’ve seen most is dressed down elegance. Whether powering through a workout, picking up the kids from school, or enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day, we’re inspired by the women coming into our store who effortlessly combine casual style with stunning jewelry. My sister Daphne, the buyer for both of our stores, and my niece, Marisa, exemplify style in the fashion spread, “Around Town Chic.” In “Working Out the Zachary’s Way,” you’ll meet our lead custom designer, Erica; the newest member of the Zachary’s family, Jillian; and my wife and partner in life, Challie. Jewelry has always been important to the women in my life, especially my mother, who imparted a passion for it in me at a young age. Over the years, I’ve watched my sisters delight in the few remaining pieces of my mother’s jewelry collection, and my nieces’ eyes always light up upon receiving their first piece of jewelry from “Uncle Stephen.” I can tell you from experience that jewelry means something different to everyone but it often means the most when it means family. We’re excited to share some of these stories of jewelry being passed down from generation to generation in “Like Mother, Like Daughter.” So, as you flip though the following pages, we hope you feel like you are a part of our family, because you are. You’re the reason we get out of bed every morning and go to work and love what we do. Thank you for being a loyal customer. We hope you enjoy the issue.

A seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination. Forevermark and Jade Trau present The Alchemy Collection, the first exclusive collection Jade has created for Forevermark. Alchemy is the next evolution of the five-year partnership between the designer and the brand, effortlessly marrying the world’s most beautiful and carefully selected diamonds with Jade’s meticulous attention to detail and commitment to quality. It was Jade’s intention to design a collection that bonds a diamond to its wearer and evokes the same sense of connection to diamonds that she developed at a young age. The name for this collection was born out of transforming four diamond shapes into meaningful treasures that speak to each woman individually. Each shape embodies an archetype that represents who the customer was, is, and strives to be. Forevermark diamonds inherently have so many of those incredible qualities found in women: strength, beauty and integrity. 10

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER 14

ZACHARYSJEWELERS.COM


n May 10, 2018, Zachary’s Jewelers hosted internationally renowned jewelry designer Marco Bicego at its flagship store in downtown Annapolis. Fans of the designer gathered to celebrate Italian craftsmanship, meet the man behind their favorite designs, take photos and have their one-of-a-kind pieces autographed. The winners of Zachary’s Annual Mother’s Day Contest also attended the event and had a chance to talk with Bicego. He talked about what inspires him, his favorite places in Italy, and even invited attendees to visit his studio in Vicenza. After genuinely enjoying his time with the Annapolitans gathered and realizing the single most successful personal appearance and sales event in the history of the brand, Mr. Bicego has vowed to visit the beautiful city of Annapolis again.

Marco’s Story

MARCO BICEGO

ince the launch of his eponymous jewelry line in 2000, Marco Bicego has redefined the phrase “everyday luxury” with sensuous, extraordinarily beautiful pieces that blend old-world Italian craftsmanship with tradition, passion, and imagination. His uniquely crafted pieces are exceptional enough to make a statement, yet personal enough to wear every day.

Bicego began his training as a gold artisan at his father’s fiftyyear-old atelier in the Veneto region of Italy. His instincts were refined at the workbench and led him to create unique, multitextured items that were both beautiful and unexpected. He began to experiment with design: blending urban-inspired lines with ethnic motifs and merging natural forms with artistic outlines. The Marco Bicego success story will continue to be one of openness to the future with a respect for tradition that is invigorated with passion and imagination. Marco Bicego will continue to lead the fine jewelry industry with his unique positioning between precious jewelry and everyday luxury.

EVERYDAY JEWELRY...

Timeless pieces can be paired with an array of outfits—from workday chic to post-workout casual—to bring a hint of opulence to your day-to-day. Maximize that opulence by bringing home pieces that really go the distance. This 18k gold “Jaipur Link Convertible Necklace” by Marco Bicego can be worn eight different ways. Wear it as a single, chic long gold chain with handcrafted elegance. Or keep it singled but shortened under a collared blouse perfect for work. Double it at staggered lengths to achieve that church bound glow. Break it up into a stunning necklace and bracelet co-ordinated set. Slip the clasp into a sexy Y-shaped lariat for a date night with a plunging neckline. Wrap all 36 inches around your wrist for an edgy or boho look. Or even wear it as a belt if you dare. In all eight looks, the gold boasts glamorous appeal, while, maintaining a degree of simplicity. This convertible work of art is truly the meaning of “everyday luxury.”

ATHLEISURE

s athleisure continues to rise in popularity, many jewelry fans are left wondering how to pair their favorite accessories with their favorite athletic wear. ALOR has solved this dilemma with colorful designs that are versatile enough to be paired with sneakers or stilettos. With rich burgundy, brilliant blues, and iridescent freshwater pearls, ALOR’s collections truly embody the idea of transitional jewelry. Each item is thoughtfully crafted to create an artful selection that will be cherished for years to come. Simply put, stackable jewelry is what ALOR does best. Their bangles beg to be worn together to express individual style. While grey, yellow, black, and rose have stood the test of time as fashion staples, ALOR wanted to offer other options that are just as versatile and fashionable. With this idea in mind, the new simple stack bangles and rings were born. These newest stackable pieces are inspired by art deco and shine with brilliant diamonds. They are the definition of stacking made easy. Both the rings and bangles appear to be multiple pieces but are actually one piece. 22

ZACHARYSJEWELERS.COM

This season also introduces the highly sought after 5-row cable cuffs. The crisp, clean design and entry level price point make these bangles the ultimate gift for yourself or someone else. Whether combined in a traditional color block or solid cable, the richness of the cable along with the brilliance of the diamonds make these pieces absolute standouts. The flexible cuffs—with or without diamonds— are exactly what a girl on the go needs. Wear a solid color to the Pilates studio and add one with diamonds for the evening for a smooth transition and seamless style. Available in 16 different colors, there is a cuff for every person and outfit!

LOR is also introducing a stunning collection of chain bracelets and necklaces embellished with freshwater pearls. This collection is markedly different than the classic cable jewelry usually associated with ALOR, while still capturing the easy elegance that is synonymous with the brand. The assortment of bracelets plays with different colors and textures, making them an easy way to add a high fashion element to any outfit. Furthermore, the pearl and chain necklaces offer a sophisticated and chic style that can be easily dressed up or down.

Continuing with the theme of lively color and rich textures, our Gentlemen’s collection debuts a brand new color for ALOR—orange! Simultaneously rugged and refined, the Gentlemen’s newest pieces take a step away from the classic cable look and jump into the world of fine leather. Additionally, ALOR offers coordinating cuff-links, necklaces, and bangles for today’s modern man to add the perfect final detail to any look.

ALOR’s timeless designs showcase a variety of styles from the famous Classique bangles to the brand new collection of chains and pearls. Each handcrafted design creates an effortless elegance that commands attention. Luxurious enough to be worn to the most sophisticated of outings and comfortable enough to be your everyday wear, ALOR’s collection offers stunning beauty and everlasting versatility to both men and women.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Exploring what jewelry means when it’s all in the family.

ewelry means something different to everyone, but when it comes to mothers and daughters, it can have particular importance. From marking a special occasion to passing a valued treasure down to the next generation, it encapsulates everything that’s so special about the mother-daughter bond. In the following pages, we profile several mothers and daughters to understand what jewelry means to them—when jewelry means family.

E VA N G E L I N E Jewelry has always held a special place in Evangeline’s heart. And while there are many beautiful pieces in her collection, there’s one that stands out—a ring that was passed down from her grandmother that she plans to give to her daughter, Katherine, one day. She hasn’t parted with the ring yet, but she recently gave Katherine something else—pierced ears. “I imagine her Uncle Stephen will give her her first pair of earrings this Christmas!” She says. Wherever they come from, it’s clear that for Evangeline jewelry is about more than just the piece itself, but the story behind it, too. 24

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER

JENNIFER Jennifer’s daughter, Emma, may not know what jewelry is yet—she’s only nine months old—but that doesn’t stop her from admiring Jennifer’s earrings. And while Jennifer hasn’t given Emma any jewelry yet, she plans to give her a diamond for her first birthday. Start them early, she says!

Zachary's Diamond Trade Up Program At Zachary’s, we want your diamonds to grow with you, whether it’s trading up baby’s studs every few years or upgrading an engagement ring at a milestone anniversary. That means when it is time to “trade up,” you can expect 100% of your diamond purchase price to be applied to your next diamond studs or engagement ring.

After I had her, I wore my diamond studs all the time,” she says. “Whenever I wore anything else, like my dangling earrings, she would try to grab it!”

PA I G E Jewelry is a family affair for Paige. Her mother had an eclectic sense of style, which she passed down to Paige via a collection of vintage 70’s jewelry. In fact, Paige was so inspired by the collection that she started her own jewelry business. And it didn’t take Paige’s daughter, Maddie, long to follow. Today, Maddie crafts and sells her own jewelry, continuing the family tradition.

“Jewelry has always been about expression for me,” says Paige. “I wear what I love and it says ‘this is me.’ A U T U M N / H O L I D AY 2 0 1 8

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER

NICKI Nicki knows a thing or two about keeping jewelry in the family. Her grandmother left each of her girls a “special ring” and she holds on to them for safe keeping. “The rings they picked from Yaya live in my jewelry box until they are old enough to take care of them on their own,” Nicki says. “I ask permission to wear them and the girls really love that.” As for her own jewelry style, Nicki says she tries to accessorize like a 5 year old. It makes life more interesting. Sometimes more is more.

C H E RY L With both daughters in college, Cheryl has had plenty of time to think about what jewelry means to her and her family. “Jewelry has always been very special to me,” says Cheryl. “When I was younger, my grandmother gave me beautiful sapphires that I still have today and I want the same thing for my girls—for my special things to become their special things. Who knows? Maybe one day they’ll be passed down to my granddaughters!” With this in mind, Cheryl has picked out jewelry for each of her daughters—a pair of diamond heart earrings for Alexandra and an emerald ring for Madison. And in this way, Cheryl hopes to give what she holds most dear to those she holds dearest.

A HIStORY OF DISTINCTION THE 4 PILLARS Since 1955, CORUM has prominently positioned itself as a preeminent luxury timepiece brand, specializing in technical excellence, distinctive designs and bold creativity and originality. The brand is iconically represented across four pillars: Admiral, Golden Bridge, Heritage and Bubble. Each collection is deeply rooted in the company’s history. With an appealing variety of styles to choose from, CORUM truly offers something for everyone.

Admiral In 1960, the first Admiral was released and to this day it continues to be inextricably linked to world-class sailing. With its inimitable aesthetic and signature nautical pennants featured on the dial or flange, incorporating striking colors and unique materials, this series remains a success story for the company. Over half a century since its inception, the Admiral collection remains a timeless classic for CORUM.

CORUM

Golden Bridge CORUM’s flagship complication model, the Golden Bridge created by Vincent Calabrese, was first introduced in 1980 and remains a benchmark with its patented baguette movement housed within its transparent sapphire crystal case. The Golden Bridge Stream design was inspired by the infamous Bay area structure, the Golden Gate Bridge. In 2013, an automatic version was introduced, featuring a new winding system comprised of two interconnected, oscillating weights. This micro-mechanical marvel continues to write new pages in watchmaking history.

Heritage Since the company’s early beginnings, the Heritage collection has embodied a perfect balance of creativity and high art. During its history, this collection has provided stunning creations featuring enameled and feather dials, painted miniatures and engraving wonders. The most noteworthy series has been the classic Coin design, a model worn by numerous U.S. presidents and celebrities. Romvlvs is making a comeback, and the category is complimented by new introductions of exquisitely jeweled and tailored styles.

Bubble The first generation of this radically oversized, unorthodox series was introduced in 2000 and became an immediate sensation. Over time, it has earned its key position in CORUM’s heritage. The signature towering sapphire crystal serves as a lens, magnifying glass upon the playful and sometimes irreverent dial images. Recent introductions include a Magical “nohands” dial and earlier this year, the Corum Bubble Central Tourbillon aka, Bubble 47 Swoosh was unveiled. Through the distorted wide-eye of the Bubble design, Corum continues to stretch the boundaries of extraordinary creativity for watch enthusiasts of uninhibited and avant-garde watchmaking.

Jewelry can be a great activewear accessory from low impact barre class to high intensity triathlon training. A little sweat never hurt anyone’s diamonds. However, depending on the type of exercise and the intensity of the workout, certain types of jewelry may be better suited than others. We put together a few dos and don’ts, so you can break a sweat without sacrificing your style.

Studs are great for almost any activity! Being small and out of the way, they are perfect for just about anything other than kick-boxing. Be sure your backs are snug or better yet, have your favorite studs modified to screwbacks you’re ready for action.

Rings are very stylish, but aren’t always the best if you’re lifting weights, swimming, or rowing. Feel free to wear your rings to spin or to hike a local trail.

Shorter simple necklaces are perfect for dashing between fitness classes and running errands. The right diamond necklace can do it all from paddle boarding to Zumba.

Hoops are still a staple this year. Stay on trend by wearing your hoops to a toning session, dancing and cycling. Just keep them small enough to not get caught and your hair tucked back or in a pony.

Thin bracelets, also known as tennis bracelets, can add elegance to any active look, from the country club to the weight room. Layer multiples or use one to glam up that step tracker.

Larger necklaces may get in the way during more intense activities, but pop on a statement necklace post workout to stay chic and master the art of “Athleisure.�

JILLIAN “I’ve been a Jazzercise instructor for 3 years. It’s a fun way to work out and release stress—my boyfriend Brad has even tagged along a few times! When I work out, I like to wear a simple bracelet and necklaces that don’t get in the way.”

ERICA “I started doing yoga in college and it’s been a great outlet for me ever since. It’s nice to know that whatever is going on in my life, I can take a half hour and find some balance. Most of the jewelry I wear every day, I also wear when I work out—whether it’s my diamond studs, stackable rings, or a delicate necklace or bracelet.” 38

The Top

Looks

of The Season A pop of color on the ears can brighten a person’s facial complexion. Unusual earrings continue to grow in popularity, for women at work and around town. As an alternative to diamond studs and to embrace matching with clothing, we recommend colored stone earrings as a TOP LOOK for the season.

A dramatic cocktail ring can transform your mood. Color is a great styling tool that can affect mood and evoke emotion. For instance, blue is typically calming, while green evokes feelings of ambition and growth. Rings are very visible and so it’s important to choose a color that means something to you. I created the cocktail rings in the Rocks Collection to provide women with an opportunity to integrate their favorite color into their daily look. A colorful cocktail ring is definitely a TOP LOOK for any season.

Layering necklaces can change the appearance of an outfit. Distinctive looks and patterns can be transformed by layering necklaces. Whether short or long, diamond, gold, and colored stone chains can work together to create a personal style. Some necklaces can be worn every day and never taken off, like the diamond station necklaces. A second and third necklace has the ability to change your look and add sparkle. Layering two or three necklaces is a TOP LOOK for the season!

gold and stone colors provides versatility that appeals to modern women looking for a touch of Boho Chic. Adding bangles to the seasons styles is definitely a TOP LOOK!

Dramatic long earrings create an elegant black-tie look. A pair of long unusual earrings accented with diamonds can make a black-tie dress look even more exquisite. Since each pair is unique, no one will ever have the same exact jewels. A pair of Asymmetric earrings paired with our long Sparkle diamond chains is a timeless black-tie TOP LOOK!

And while it’s a great way to kick off the holiday season, it’s so much more—a venue for these amazing young dancers to display their athleticism and feel empowered. Since its inception, the Chesapeake Ballet Company has provided an outlet for young dancers in the Chesapeake Bay region to perform in professionally-staged productions, producing two full-length ballets each year, including “The Nutcracker.” Dedicated to nurturing and inspiring artistic development, it provides a positive space that fosters friendship, commitment, teamwork and self-esteem.

Every #StoryOfYes starts somewhere, whether it’s a night like any other, a walk on the beach, or somewhere worlds away.

Tristin and Kristen “I knew something was different from the start with Tristin. I mean, with rhyming names like ‘Tristin’ and ‘Kristen’ who wouldn’t think we’d end up together? That said, I was still very surprised when he proposed. We were getting ready to go out to dinner and he told me he had ripped his shirt and would be right back. Suddenly, I heard our song playing and he appeared and invited me downstairs where he proposed. I guess some things are just meant to be.”

#STORY OF YES

Ryan and Lindsey “Ryan and I have been together six years and treat ourselves to a Disney trip each year—it’s our favorite place! Little did I know he was going to propose on our last trip. It happened in the morning at Magic Kingdom. We were posing for photos in front of Cinderella Castle when Ryan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Immediately after, fireworks went off behind us and a photographer was there to capture the moment. I’ve never been so surprised in my life!” Photo Credit: Micahl Wyckoff Photography

Corey and Sarah “Corey and I dated for 10 years before getting engaged. We had just moved back to Maryland from Florida when he proposed. It was Christmas and we went over to his parent’s house to take pictures, as we do every year. We were in the middle of taking family photos when he got down on one knee and popped the question! I was so shocked, I didn’t notice that my parents had arrived. It was such a special day and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!”

Heather and Frank “Federal Hill has always been a special place for Frank and me, since it’s where we met and went on our first few dates. So, when Frank invited me on a walk one foggy, January evening, I didn’t think anything of it. All of a sudden, he got down on one knee and started to say, ‘Two years, five months and 21 days ago…’ It was the most romantic moment of my life and I’ll never forget it.” Photo Credit: Matthew Sowa

“I lost my mom when I was young and Nick never got to meet her. But he knows how important family is to me and made sure my dad and sister were there when he proposed. We were vacationing in Charleston with his family and were walking on the beach one night when he got down on one knee. If that wasn’t surprise enough, my dad and sister were there when we got back to the house. I knew at that moment that my mom was looking down on me.”


#STORY OF YES

Kevin and Catherine “I spent a summer in the Dominican Republic working at a camp that’s very special to me. And Kevin loves wood working so I brought him back a small piece of wood. He ended up turning it into the ring box he proposed with. Our ring bearer carried it on our wedding day.”

7:33 PM, 6/14/2011 “I’ll never forget that night. I was at a party and through the crowd I saw her standing by the fountain. For a second, I could have sworn time stopped. I introduced myself and asked for her number and to my surprise she gave it to me. I called her right there, so she had mine. ‘Hi,’ she said, smiling as she answered it. And at that moment, I just knew.” Every #storyofyes starts somewhere. Start yours at AStoryofYes.com

Wha t it's All About ,

Because at the end of the day it’s all about FUN

W

hat is it all about? Is it about making a customer smile when they first walk in the door? Is it about doing good work and building relationships? For us, it’s about all of these things and more. It’s about what they add up to: having fun every day and making the most of each moment. “When a customer walks into our store, they’re genuinely glad to see us,” says Steve Samaras, Zachary’s owner. “Because they know we’re going to take care of them, whether that means replacing a small diamond that’s fallen out of a setting at no cost or giving a treat to their dog. And beyond that, we have fun. We get to be a part of these really important events in people’s lives: engagements, graduations, anniversaries…” Because what’s the point of jewelry if it doesn’t make someone smile or laugh or cry (tears of joy, of course!)?

To us, being a part of our customers’ lives isn’t just a job, it’s a passion, a responsibility—the reason we get out of bed every morning. We enjoy knowing that when one of our customers gets down on one knee to propose or surprise his wife of forty years over a candlelit dinner, we played a small part in that moment. After all, it’s not about the rings or the pendants or the bracelets. It’s about the stories behind them— the well laid plans gone astray, fumbling in the rain for the right words, holding your breath until you hear what you’ve been waiting for: “Yes.” It’s about love—and love is supposed to be fun, isn’t it?
