Christmas In July at Silver Superstore!
It’s Christmas In July At Silver Superstore!
It’s an exceptionally hot summer, but one way to beat the heat is to look forward to Christmas. The idea of gently falling snow and glistening icicles has never seemed so appealing.
If you collect or make gifts of annually issued Christmas ornaments, it’s never too early to snatch up the new editions. The unique heirlooms start selling out before many collectors finish their Thanksgiving leftovers. Too, you should factor in time for custom engraving and shipping. Engraving makes any keepsake more personal.
We offer an impressive collection of finely crafted ornaments made by the world’s most respected silversmiths. Here are three popular designs, all made right here in the U.S., that are sure to delight year after year.
Wallace Sleigh Bell
A 16-year-old spoon-maker named Robert Wallace set up shop in the early 1800s. Wallace first issued its whimsical sleigh bell, which is often the top-selling ornament, in 1971.
As always, the three-dimensional motif circles the center of the round bell and frames the year. The 2018 Wallace Sleigh Bell features both holly and Santa Claus. The 2 3/4-inch silver-plated bell has a light, merry ring. The Wallace mark is stamped on the bottom.
We also offer the 24th-edition sterling silver version. The bells look as pretty collected in a bowl as they do dangling from a Christmas tree.
Each ornament comes with both red and white ribbons for hanging, a protective pouch, a gift box and a brochure. Because of their dainty size, we recommend limiting engraved messages to one line.
The six-pointed snowflake is softened with a graceful floral design that repeats on both sides. It will reflect the Christmas lights to beautiful effect as it spins gently on the tree or mantel.
The ornament is 3 1/2 inches tall by 3 1/4 inches wide. It weighs 5 ounces. “Gorham Sterling 2018” is embossed along the bottom edge. It comes with a festive red ribbon, a protective pouch, the original factory gift box and a Gorham brochure.
Since the piece is two-sided, choose an engraved gift tag to make it memorable.
Reed & Barton Cross
Since 1824, Reed & Barton has produced everything from flatware to Olympic medals.
The cross series is based on original artifacts of historic significance. All the crosses are of the Greek or Maltese style with arms of equal length. This year’s version, with a flowing fleur de lis pattern, harks to medieval architecture and ornamentation.
The flat back is embossed with “2018 Christmas Cross Reed & Barton.” It is 3 1/2 inches tall and wide. It comes in a hinged velvet box along with a red ribbon, protective pouch and brochure.
Interestingly, Reed & Barton destroys its dies at the end of each Christmas season. This ensures that poor imitations are never made. In a world full of knockoffs, it’s rare to own something unique.
We offer dozens of ornaments across a wide variety of themes. Make some lemonade, browse the collection and dream of the cooler days ahead.
