Retirement Sale: 40-70% Off Jewelry
Arden Jewelers was founded over 20 years ago in Sacramento, CA by a visionary jeweler and business man. His goal was to provide his clients with an honest, straightforward jewelry experience. Using his professional expertise, he saved people money and helped them find the prefect jewelry for them.

Jewelry Style Basics
Jewelry basics are like DNA. They are the building blocks but they create a great diversity of looks. Diamonds gemstones, chains, pendants, pins and even earring should be displayed differently to produce your style. What is your style? Having the right jewelry can go a long way in helping you project an image of confidence and individual flair.

Jewelry, Family, and What Really Matters
One Saturday, a client came in to sell her jewelry. Things were going along normally with the evaluation of the jewelry. It was a larger than normal sale, and she had been around to a few other jewelers. Our offer was the highest, and she decided to sell. When filling out the paper work, she explained to her daughter (age 12-ish) that she was selling her jewelry so she could pay her next medical bill. This was the third treatment, and she felt it was not going to work. She did not want to be a financial burden on her family. She was explaining to her daughter that a woman always thinks of her family first. The jewelry is just... read more »
