Brand Spotlight Especially for Valentine’s Day- Murphy’s Jewelers
Hello everyone!! Today, we’re going to take a minute to shine a bright spotlight on a local brand: Murphy’s Jewelers out of Magnolia, Arkansas, who have a sparkling case full of gorgeous precious metals and stones on display in our store. Partly, this is just because we love featuring local shops when we can (I know Magnolia doesn’t count as part of Northwest Arkansas, but we can cut them some slack for that, right?). But Valentine’s Day is also rapidly approaching, and if you need help choosing something for the special lady in your life (or want to share the link to this blog with the special man/woman in your life so they know what to get you), hopefully this will solve all your holiday needs.
A tradition since 1939, it was founded by Jerome Murphy, and his son Richard joined him in the business in 1972. Now, Richard’s daughter Maggie is part of the team, making the store a third generation establishment. Mark Williams hopped on board in the early 90’s and now acts as the managing partner, and Aaron Wilkerson started at the same time, functioning as Murphy’s Bench jeweler. With Melissa Franks added into the mix, the team has over 100 years of experience between them- phenomenal!
While we offer a selection of their products inside Remedy Road, the original store features even more, you can check them out on their website- murphysjewelers.com, they’re on Facebook and Instagram as well, and they even offer custom designs just for you. In-store in Magnolia, they handle appraisals, gold/diamond buying, engraving, and repairs too. What more could you ask for?
But now for the really important part: Bea, what earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings are you showcasing inside Remedy Road this year for Murphy’s? Read on to find out…

Necklaces: in necklaces, we have seven different square solitaire pendants, including a stone in the center (amethyst- purple, diamond- white, onyx- black, emerald- green, ruby- red, sapphire- blue, or garnet- deep red), surrounded by 18 karat yellow gold, enclosed in sterling silver decorative beadwork. With any of the colored stones, you might stop to consider what her birthstone, favorite color, and favorite gem are to help you choose one, or other important dates associated with a month-based gemstone such as your anniversary, the kids’ birthdays, and yours as well.

Rings: and in rings, we have a beautiful diamond baguette ring similar to the necklace we looked at earlier (who says you have to limit yourself to buying her one V-Day gift when coordinating pieces are available)
A diamond encircling red corundum stones band (corundum is the same class of minerals as ruby and sapphire)
And a band featuring eight rubies with one diamond in the center totaling 1.31 carats altogether, all three of which would go hand in hand with Valentine’s, considering the colors incorporated.
An amethyst and diamond fashion ring in a unique double overlapping rectangular shape
And a single blue sapphire with diamonds accenting the band
Or an emerald cut ruby with round diamonds
We even have a 14 karat white gold engagement ring with a London blue topaz centerpiece that’s gorgeous and a diamond halo in .67 carats surrounding it.

And in the immortal words of Mr. Porky Pig, “That’s all, folks!” If there isn’t something on this list that she’ll absolutely adore for Valentine’s Day, then I’ll eat my weight in Valentine’s marshmallow hearts (although I might do that anyway… just because). This is Bea, signing off.
