Pearls are such a classic and timeless addition to any wardrobe — I just got a bunch from my grandma’s estate and I remember her wearing them 30 years ago! Amazing that they’re still just as in style! Hope to see you at this event! Maybe you’ll find something to pass on for generations to come! 🙂

Lots going on at Krombholz Jewelers these days! (I would be celebrating too if I was turning 75 years old!) 🙂 They’re having their Annual Vendor Sale Dec. 5.

I loved going to this event last year, and got some GREAT deals. Basically, Krombholz invites all the jewelry brands they work with to host a trunk show to liquidate that season or year’s collection. So, you’re going to get the best deals of the year at this sale and get the items before they’re gone! Oh, and enjoy light bites and drinks while you’re shopping…doesn’t get much better than that!Invite

Great Gatsby Film Inspires Cincinnati-based Jewelry Designer

Krombholz Jewelers showcases designs, new and vintage, inspired by the Gatsby era


The new “Great Gatsby” film is inspiring more than just movie ticket sales. Fashions inspired by the Roaring 20s era are rushing to racks across the nation.


Cincinnati-based Krombholz Jewelers is no exception. According to owner and lead designer, Lee Krombholz, this art deco era is one that’s always inspired him and been featured in-store. Now, because of the film, designs from the 20s and 30s are being showcased at Krombholz Jewelers more than ever.


“Krombholz Jewelers is very excited for the release of the new Great Gatsby movie which is directed by Baz Luhrmann,” says Krombholz. “In fact, the movie and jewelry store even have some parallels. While the movie maintains its classical appearance in clothing and dĂ©cor, the soundtrack has taken on a modern spin including artists like Jay-Z, The XX, Florence + the Machine, Lana del Rey and many more. While Krombholz Jewelers sells and creates modern jewelry, over half of our cases are filled with antique and vintage jewelry. A shopper might also notice a current alternative rock soundtrack being played in store.”


Krombholz says you can look for the following jewelry trends in the movie:


Flapper Fashion

The story takes place in 1922 which was known as the prime of the “Roaring Twenties.” As women gained the right to vote in 1920, they felt that they had more freedom. Dresses were shorter, make-up became more prominent, hair was cropped into a “bob,” and the look of the flapper was created.

Art Deco

Art Deco style was everywhere, in both architecture and jewelry. Popular stones embellished in these art deco settings were emerald, ruby, marcasite, pearl and ivory.


Jewelry Accents

Jewelry was used to pull the whole look together, to compliment the dress and to soften the look of the short hair. Dangling earrings became immensely popular as well as long strands of beads and stacks of bracelets. It was all about glamour so crystals and rhinestones became trendy.


Accent pieces were added to dresses to make them flashier. In Krombholz’s store there several examples of this:

– Filigree buckle, that is Edwardian and ornate with detailing you would see beginning in the 1910s and continuing through the 20s and 30s.

– A dress clip, originally a pair, these clips would have been symmetrically placed on a dress. Both baguette and marquise diamonds were used in design to give the piece an art deco feel. The absolute flashiness of the piece reflects a time of opulence and glamour, which the movie portrays.

– A jade and diamond broach. About a decade earlier, Asian influences became very popular in jewelry. This carried over to the 1920s and this piece displays ornately carved jade with platinum deco embellishments.


“Recently we began to carry a new line of jewelry that reflects a modern vintage look. The designer is Cristina Sabatini,” explains Krombholz, noting that the earrings pictured are made using rose gold plated sterling silver with colored resin and CZ’s. “Fashion magazines like Vogue have already picked up many of the trends from Gatsby so this look may become more common with the release of the movie. Come by Krombholz Jewelers to see even more featured pieces in our very own Gatsby collection.”


The Great Gatsby film, based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, will be in theaters on May 10. Krombholz Jewelers is located at 9399 Shelly Ln  Cincinnati, OH 45242. More information available at www.krombholzjewelers.com.

Night in White Recap


On May 3, my Cincy Chic team and I hosted our fourth annual Night in White event at 21c Museum and Hotel! It was such a HUGE success!

We selected a new venue (it’s been at Krombholz Jewelers for the past three years), and it was fabulous! If you haven’t been to the 21c yet, I highly recommend it! It’s actually free to view the museum and it’s open to the public 24/7!

Click here to see photos that the Cincinnati.com photographer snapped at the event, and click here to see all the fun photobooth photos!

Also, True Artists Studio got a sneak peek of Cincy Chic’s 2013 Night in White event as Heyman Talent Models were fitted by FashionCincy.com at Alligator Purse, Curate Boutique and Krombholz Jewelers for their looks at this year’s fashion show. So, if you missed the show – or even if you were there, and just want to see all the fab fashions again – this is a great video showcasing all the styles in the show. Enjoy!

Who said you can’t wear white before Memorial Day? Cincy Chic is not only making it fashionable, but also philanthropic as it hosts its fourth annual “Night in White” event on May 3, from 8-11pm, at the 21c Museum Hotel downtown.

At this event, guests will enjoy cocktails, desserts, gourmet coffee, photo booth, fundraising activities, silent auction, a viewing of the new 21c art gallery, and a spectacular fashion show sponsored by Krombholz Jewelers and styled by FashionCincy.com.  All proceeds will benefit the Eight Days & One Hour Foundation’s Stephen Jason Morsch Nursing Scholarship, which was founded by Stephen Smith and his Cincinnati-based family.

“We started the Stephen Jason Morsch, 8 Days and 1 Hour Nursing Scholarship as a memorial to our late grandson Stephen in 2006. We were so touched by the generosity, care and compassion provided by the nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital during his stay. They all were truly inspirational angels on earth,” says Smith.  “Following Stephen’s passing we wanted to give back to all of those whose vocation was to help others through the nursing profession. To date we have given seven scholarships to the wonderful student nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital Nursing College. Night In White has become our largest fundraiser over the last few years — helping us to fully fund the endowment that we created at the Good Samaritan Foundation. We thank all of the sponsors and staff that have made this yearly event possible.”

This year’s Night in White event will take place at the 21c Museum Hotel, located at 609 Walnut Street. Tickets are $35 dollars for general admission and VIP tickets can be purchased for $65. Donations are also welcome. Tickets may be purchased here online.  Dress for the evening will be “white cocktail chic” with statement jewelry.
