Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced mouthfeel and clean finish of precious gems and metals. Show off sophisticated taste with today's Groupon: for $250, you get $500 worth of in-store or custom jewelry at South Bay Jewelry, valid at the locations in Aliso Viejo and Laguna Hills.
Staffed by a host of bijoux gurus –including an experienced GIA gemologist–South Bay Jewelry keeps patrons bedizened in a gleaming assortment of rings, timepieces, and necklaces, as well as custom designs. A silver and moonstone bracelet ($465) imbues wearers with extraterrestrial glamour, and lackluster lobes morph into glistering beacons when embellished with a pair of 14-karat white-gold sapphire earrings ($1,300). A designer sterling-silver bracelet ($465) stylishly delineates the border between hands and arms. Celebrate the hard-working glyph stationed at the beginning of a name or the oft-neglected rune at the tail end with a brilliant 14-karat white-gold diamond block-letter necklace ($499). Clients can also collaborate with a master jeweler, who creates custom pieces in a process that includes a preliminary sketch, interpretive dance, gem selection, digital renderings, and, finally, production.
As an added bonus, customers who use their Groupon and spend more than $1,000 will receive a complimentary 8- to 9-foot premium noble fir tree. Free tree delivery is included within a 15-mile radius of the South Bay Jewelry store location.
