“Jewelry is intimate to me. It represents a special time or event in my life. I can look at each unique piece in my collection and parallel it with a memory that is near and dear to my heart. Clarkes is one of a kind in that both Ginger’s taste in selecting pieces for the store is extraordinary, and Terri’s insight into what I already have in my collection and what would be a wonderful addition is exceptional. I often refer to this duo as “my dream team." My lifestyle is casual, (most of the time), and I love that I am able to throw on my jewelry with jeans, yet turn around and pair it with an evening out. Terri makes my life easier by texting me photographs for pieces she thinks my daughter will enjoy, as well as helping me select a special item for HIM on our 20th anniversary!”
"It took me several hundred hours of research and many conversations with jewelers and diamond brokers around the country to realize that A: I wasn’t going to become an expert no matter how much homework I did, and B: most jewelers aren’t ever going to be as particular about the sale as you are about the purchase. Except Ginger Clarke. She made me feel that it was just as big of a deal to her as it was to me, which is a service you can’t put a price on. Based on my suggestions for what my fiancée wanted, she created a ring that exceeded all of my incredibly high expectations."
“Most men find shopping for their wives a task but I personally enjoy shopping for mine. Natalie has a birthday on Christmas day, and we have an anniversary that follows close behind… Clarkes makes my shopping extremely easy. Terri’s knowledge of what Natalie could add to her collection is most helpful, and she has allowed me to continue my status as the ‘the perfect husband.’”
