Gift Guide: Finks Jewelers

Posted: Updated:

I'M AT THE NORTH HILLS LOCATION OF FINKS IN RALEIGH TALKING WITH NEAL LEGARDE AND I WAS SO EXCITED TO LEARN THAT FINKS IS A FAMILY OWNED COMPANY RIGHT?  YES.  MARK FINK IS THIRD GENERATION.  STARTED IN 1938 BY HIS GRANDFATHER. BASED IN THE SOUTHEAST.  RIGHT OUT OF ROANOKE, VIRGINIA.  STORES IN NC AND VIRGINIA.

LET'S TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE AMAZING LINES YOU CARRY HERE, STARTING WITH BREITLING.  YES, WE CARRY BREITLING WATCHES AND WE'RE VERY PROUD TO HAVE IT IN THE RALEIGH MARKET AS AN EXCLUSIVE WATCH FOR THE FINKS HERE.  BREITLING STARTED THEIR WATCH LINE IN THE AVIATION FIELD.  TODAY THEY STILL USE THE NAVITIMER.  IT'S GOT A SLIDERULER ON IT WHICH ENABLES THE INDIVIDUAL TO ACTUALLY FLY A PLANE BY THE WATCH.  AND YOU HAVE BREITLING FOR MEN AND WOMEN.

I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOHN HARDY BUT THE JEWELRY IS BEAUTIFUL.  HE'S A DESIGNER OUT OF BALI, INDONESIA.  HE TIES MOST OF HIS LINE INTO THE BALINEASE CULTURE.  ONE OF THE MOST INTERSTING LINES I FIND IN HIS COLLECTION IS HIS NAGA, NAGA MEANING DRAGON.  NAGA IS A PROTECTOR TO THEM AND ALSO REPRESENTS PASSION AND PROSPERITY WITHIN THE LINE SO IT'S KIND OF NEAT TO SEE A PIECE OF JEWLERY THAT TELLS THE STORY OF THEIR CULTURE.  IT WILL DEFINITLEY GET SOME COMMENTS, WEARING A DRAGON AROUND YOUR NECK OR YOUR WRIST.

ROBERTO COIN IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.  ROBERTO COIN IS OBVIOUSLY ALL 18 KARAT GOLD, FROM NORTHERN ITALY.  IT REALLY IS A FINE QUALITY GOLD PIECE BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY IT GIVES US A LOT MORE YELLOW GOLD.  MOST VENDORS ARE GOING MORE TO SILVER.  IT'S NICE TO HAVE SOMEBODY THAT STILL BELIEVES IN 18 KARAT GOLD.

LET'S SEE WHAT MIKE'S DOING OVER AT THE SOUTHPOINT STORE.  I'M WITH CARLOS THE GENERAL MANAGER.  TELL ME HOW YOU LOVE BEING OUTSIDE OF THE MALL HERE AT SOUTPOINT.  BEING OUTSIDE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE.  IT'S A FREE STANDING LOCATION.  WE HAVE SO MUCH SHOWROOM IT'S UNBELIEVABLE. IT'S BEEN GREAT FOR US.

TELL ME ABOUT THE HOT ITEMS EVERYONE'S ASKING ABOUT FOR THE HOLIDAYS.  EVERYBODY WANTS DAVID YURMAN.  ONE OF THE BEST BRANDS IN THE BUSINESS.

WE HAVE A BRAND IPPOLITA.  SHE MAKES REALLY COOL, HIPPY CHIC ITEMS THAT YOU CAN STACK TOGETHER, LONGER NECKLACES.

TAG HEUER HAS COME OUT WITH SOME HOT STUFF FOR CHRISTMAS.  THEY HAVE ALL SIZE WATCHES, LARGE, SMALL, THE TRAVELER.  WHOEVER YOU ARE, THEY HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU.
