Shine on the Bright Side

Snow may still reign supreme on the streets outside Rochester's finest shop for her, him and home (that's us!), but today is the first day of Spring! It's time to look forward to this most resplendent of seasons in Rochester. Easter, Passover, Mother's Day, graduations, weddings, recitals, birthdays, anniversaries...the best is yet to come! Close your eyes and you can practically smell the lilacs.

Speaking of loveliness in bloom, this weekend brings a sweet Pandora promotion to People's Pottery! When you spend $125 on Pandora jewelry, you receive the beautiful Pandora sterling silver bracelet pictured above.

After weathering an epic wind storm and ferocious blizzard, we are more than ready to Spring ahead to happier times. We hope everyone's life has returned to routine. And we are reminded, yet again, of the power of positive thinking. Did you know that remaining optimistic -- even (and especially) in nerve-wracking situations -- can help mitigate the havoc that stress can unleash upon the mind and body? Positive thinking is linked to longer life, lower levels of distress, reduced rates of depression, enhanced coping skills, higher resistance to heart attacks, and even greater immunity to the common cold. How does jewelry play a role in positive thinking? Because thinking of loved ones, and our gratitude for them, is one of the quickest and most effective ways to feel joy. And feeling joy is one of the best ways to avoid feeling stress.

From our Kiss and Dream diamonds to our NanoRosetta coins, the collections at our store capture the memories, joy, and love that bind us to one another.

It's why, even in the darkest days of wind and snow, families and friends and even perfect strangers stepped forward with acts of kindness.

It's why we're looking forward to another wonderful season with you. Stop in and see us!

How Does a Moment Last Forever?

This Friday, leprechauns and four-leaf clovers will mingle in the pop-culture melange with singing teapots, candlesticks, and clocks; as the national opening of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson  coincides with St. Patrick's Day. Here's why we're excited about this movie:

1. Disney Pandora's exclusive offer. The beautiful red rose, signature yellow gown, and bubbly teapot comprise this "charming" gift set. With purchase, you receive a lithograph exclusive to Pandora and the movie soundtrack (while supplies last).

2. That soundtrack! Songs from the original 1991 film join new numbers in a sprawling, live-action, full-throttle movie musical. The title song receives a fresh update by Ariana Grande and John Legend; and Celine Dion returns to sing a new song, "How Does a Moment Last Forever?"

3. How does a moment last forever, anyway? Glad you asked! Here at People's Pottery, there are so many ways to answer that question  -- including our NanoRosetta holograms that endure for hundreds of generations (much like the original fairy tale), our enchanting Pandora boutique of sentiments and stones, and our beautiful Kiss and Dream diamond collection. If anyone emerging from seeing this dark romance in theaters feels compelled to brighten their own Belle's day with an eternity ring, we have brilliant center-cut diamonds to place into a stunning design, one that ranges from vintage to modern, simple to intricate -- always gorgeous, forever timeless.

Kiss and Dream diamonds, nestled into detail.

Stop in and see us before the snow swirls through!
