Full Circle: Bill Jones, CEO, Sissy’s Log Cabin

Comments

It all started when Sissy Jones spotted an actual log cabin for sale as she drove along U.S. Highway 79S in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, one day back in 1970. Intrigued, the avid antiques collector pulled off the road, called the number on the sign, and made a life-changing decision: to rent the $50-a-month space. She stocked it with antiques from her own home, and opened Sissy’s Log Cabin for sales and appraisals.

The Shape of Things to Come

Comments

High-end jewels from JCK Las Vegas There’s a lot to see and do at JCK Las Vegas (this comes as news to no one, surely), so it’s important to prioritize your visit and pack your schedule as full as you can make it.

Roll Out the Red Carpet

Comments

Jewelry predictions for the 2018 Oscars Who’s ready for the 2018 Academy Awards? Even if you haven’t seen all (or even a few) of the movies, you can’t deny the magnetic pull of a good awards show—particularly if you’re in it for the fashion and jewelry. With many of this year’s red carpet events being dedicated to the #MeToo movement and #TimesUp initiative, it can seem frivolous to put much importance on who’s wearing what and how many carats their diamond necklace features.
