The 10 Essentials: #4 The Cuff Bracelet

Posted by & filed under Gift Ideas, Hitchcock Madrona Signature, Inspiration, Signature Piece, Uncategorized.

You can always tell a Hitchcock Madrona woman, or man, by their fierce Cuff. Whether it’s sterling silver, copper, or bronze when you see one you know you have meet a member of your tribe. The HM Cuff comes in two sizes. Kristina likes to wear the small bronze version everyday, layered with her watch and a couple of bangles. Erica is rarely seen without the large in sterling silver, and Dustin has been wearing his copper cuff long enough that is has the patina of a lucky penny. You have your choice of leather color, black or dark brown. The durable leather strap gets better with age, it will soften and conform to your wrist the longer you wear it. Go ahead, pick a combination – wide sterling and black leather, thin copper and brown leather – and join the tribe.

We’re all familiar with the 12 Days of Christmas but really, who needs all those birds … we might keep the five golden rings though!  This holiday season we’re bringing you the 10 Hitchcock Essentials.  At Hitchcock Madrona we believe that every woman needs ten essential items in her jewelry box – maybe 11 if you include a fabulous jewelry box!

Each post we’ll bring you a new Essential and some of the best versions of it.

Let’s get started with something big and bold – some of our favorite descriptors around here! The Statement Earring.  You know the pair – you design an outfit around them, you put them on for that extra special date night, you’ll put your hair up just to make sure everybody sees how fabulous they are, they make you feel like the best version of yourself.

Restocked! The Original HM Bangle Cuff

Posted by & filed under Gift Ideas, Hitchcock Madrona Signature, Just In, Signature Piece.

The Original HM Bangle Cuff is back by popular demand!!!  Available in sterling silver, as well as, yellow gold (pictured) and rose gold fill.  They are durable and easier to wear than a bangle bracelet (especially when you work at a computer all day!).  The hammered texture has a gentle sparkle which is so pretty!  Add to your existing bracelet stack or wear them alone, the bangle cuffs are a great way to mix metals.  My current favorite combo is two thick yellow gold and one thin silver.  It’s not too early to think about mom (hint, hint).  Purchase online at: https://hitchcockmadrona.com/shop/17-bangle-cuff.html

IMG_3947
Father’s Day is tomorrow! Whether your man is a jewelry lover, or you want to push his style boundaries a bit, we have got you covered. Both Hitchcock classics, our sterling silver cuff (bronze and copper versions too!) and signet ring are wonderful options for dad.

IMG_3963

Our sterling silver and leather cuff has been one of our most popular items for years (for women and men). We just love a big cuff with a masculine vibe and we think he will too! It is effortlessly cool, a little tough and totally edgy.

IMG_3966

Our cuffs are comfortable and stylish, timeless and sophisticated – an instant classic. They only get better and better with time as the leather breaks in and softens, and the metal develops its own unique patina. It is such a special piece and one that adds an instantly cool vibe to any jewelry collection.

IMG_4000

Signet rings are a jewelry wardrobe essential. For our in-house design we put a twist on the classic Signet with an oxidized frame and gave it a more substantial weight – perfect for your man.

We will be open tomorrow (10am-5pm) for any of your last minute Father’s Day gift needs!

Graduation Ornamentation: The Signet Ring

Posted by & filed under Gift Ideas, Graduation Ornamentation.

For the second installment of our Graduation Ornamentation Gift Guide we are focusing on the Signet ring. Typically engraved with a monogram, coat of arms, or symbol of significance, the Signet ring is a wonderful graduation gift idea. Steeped in rich history, the signet ring is a traditional expression of identity – how appropriate for the grad in your life.

IMG_3731

Striking yet streamlined, our in house design is made of solid sterling silver. At Hitchcock we think of the Signet ring as a jewelry wardrobe essential. It is something to be passed down to future generations. It will never go out of style. We put a twist on the classic Signet design with an oxidized frame and gave it a more substantial weight.

IMG_3720

For the “girlie” grad this Loren Stewart Baby Signet is so sweet. It is solid 14k gold with diamonds encircling the face – so special.

signet1

There are several font options for engraving (above is a more masculine font). After the ring is engraved we slightly oxidize the monogram which pops on the shiny silver face. The darker letters also coordinate with the black frame. This is a small touch that makes a big design impact.

signet2

A more scrolling font brings some femininity to the strong style of Signet. Engravings can also be etched on the inside of the ring… a simple note of love or the graduation date are unique and sentimental ideas.

The Hitchcock signet ring is available in sizes 6 through 11 to accommodate men and women.

If you are not sure what your grad would like engraved we encourage gifting a plain Signet ring and coming back into the store to discuss the options.

XOXO

Team Hitchcock
