Susan Carton has created this exciting new business titled True Romantic Jewelry Spa & Boutique. Susan just happens to be my second cousin and although we live far apart, social media has enabled our widespread extended family to keep in touch. Sharing our experiences, good and bad, is easier than ever!
Much like myself, Susan quit her corporate job at the age of 52 to pursue her own dream. Creating her own jewelry, promoting other designers she admires, repairing and cleaning jewelry is much more rewarding and exciting. I am so proud of her for joining the freedom 52 club.
What Services does True Romantic Provide?
Who better to explain just what the business is all about than Susan herself:
Where is True Romantic Jewelry Spa & Boutique Located?
Although currently located in Scranton, Susan is moving her business to a bigger and better location in Pawtucket, both located in Rhode Island. Of course the spa services and cleaning/repairs while you wait would have to be done if you happen to physically be that vicinity.
Online Shopping Option for Jewelry and Gifts
For those of us not located anywhere near Rhode Island, True Romantic does offer online shopping for unique jewelry and gift items with delivery services anywhere in the world.
If we have improved at one thing throughout this pandemic, it has to be online shopping! I am no exception. As long as you are aware of the potential for scammers and less than quality items offered online, it can be very convenient.
My True Romantic Plans
I have two ancient rings that my husband purchased for me way back when. One is (was) an opal surrounded by garnets, the other is a cluster style, diamond engagement ring. I also have a so called wedding band, but it is not something that can be worn alone as it fits into the diamond ring. Another problem? Most of the stones are chipped or missing. I am horribly brutal on any kind of jewelry, that’s why I barely wear any these days.
I would love to get a simple wedding band made, something I could wear while working in my gardens, as well as a fancier ring for social events. That is if we ever get to attend social events any time soon.
This is one of Susan’s bands I am contemplating, a sterling silver, rope twist stacker:
For the fancier piece, I would love to incorporate the gold and stones that do remain on my old rings and/or birthstones of my grandchildren. Combining all of these elements might just be too complicated, so I will rely on the expert to give me advice.
