I love fine jewelry. I love how I can have a simple outfit, and add a piece of quality jewelry, and I feel like a millionaire. I would much rather have less jewelry, and it is beautiful quality than a ton of lesser quality pieces.
I will never forget the first time that I went to Blue House of Jewelry. I had driven by the store multiple times as I was showing homes in south Tyler, Flint, and Bullard. Every time I would drive by, I told myself that I had to stop in the next time I had a chance. Well, I was on my way to a home showing appointment, and my client at the time called and had to reschedule their appointment. I finally had an opportunity!
In the past, when I walked into jewelry stores, I always felt an overwhelming pressure to buy something. The sales reps at the other stores would follow me around, and try to make small talk, and I couldn’t stand that. I wanted to have the freedom to look first, and then if something caught my eye, I would ask to try it on. I also wanted the conversation to feel genuine, and not like a “how to sell jewelry” script.
When I walked into Blue House of Jewelry, I was quick to say “I have a spare moment, I have always wanted to come to your store, but I am just looking today” to Tina Yancey, the owner of Blue House of Jewelry. Tina took the opportunity to just get to know me like a normal person but gave me the space I needed. Tina was also warm, welcoming, and made me feel comfortable being there. Also, the store itself is stunning! I quickly noticed that the jewelry was unique, wearable, caught my eye, fashion-forward, and all different price ranges. Tina let me try on all of the pieces of jewelry that caught my eye… and it was a lot!
Whenever I come into the store, Blue House of Jewelry always offers to clean and check on my rings that I am wearing. In fact, thanks to Tina, she found out that a diamond in my stacker band was extremely loose, and was about to fall out. I would have been devasted. I am so thankful for Blue House of Jewelry.
Who Is Tina Yancey?
Tina Yancey has owned her own jewelry shop for 19 years. During that time, she has owned three stores: Silver Lady Jewelry, Bridal Registry & Gift Shop, Merle Norman Cosmetics & Fashion Boutique, and Blue House of Jewelry. Her first job was working in a department store in the jewelry department at 16 years old. By the time she was 17, Tina was the manager of that department. She has always loved jewelry and been fascinated with rocks/gemstones her entire life. Whenever she takes a vacation, she is mostly interested in what rocks she could bring back home. When she visited Alaska several years ago, Tina had to bring back her purchased rocks in backpacks to carry on because her luggage would have weighed too much!
