Jewelry That Tells a Story

Jewelry That Tells a Story

Sparkle, Shine and Meaning

Jewelry is one of the easiest ways to tell a story. Each precious piece has its own tale, whether it’s your radiant engagement ring, which speaks of a future together; or the pendant you inherited from your grandmother, which carries memories passed down through the generations. When you select a new item of jewelry, you look at its shimmer, the brilliance of its stones . . . and listen to the way it whispers a particular story especially for you. While we can’t pinpoint those pieces for you, we can tell you about some special jewelry and the stories it expresses.

Permanent Jewelry

Permanent jewelry tells the tale of everlasting connections between loved ones. If you share an enduring bond with your sister, daughter, mother or friend, permanent jewelry is the perfect way to share that relationship. Permanent jewelry is simply a claspless metal chain which is fitted perfectly to your wrist and then welded together by a specially trained Bremer associate. It’s a fun and completely painless process, leaving you with a glittering treasure that commemorates your cherished connection. Make an appointment today and get linked forever at Bremer. 

Estate Jewelry

Previously loved jewelry evokes a certain nostalgia and emotion. It belonged to someone else and held their priceless moments and memories for a time. But when you buy it, that piece is transformed. Its history lends it value, its continuing beauty makes it shine and now your precious moments and memories will sparkle in it. Capture this feeling with an estate piece of your very own from Bremer. Check out our selection online or by visiting us in-store at Peoria and Bloomington. 

My Brightest Star

Since the dawn of time, humans have looked to the night sky and crafted tales about the patterns they’ve found in stars. You can capture some of this celestial story-telling in Bremer’s My Brightest Star Collection, which features diamond and gold pendants in the shape of various Zodiac star signs, such as Aries, Virgo, Scorpio and more. With these glimmering pendants you can tell your own astral story and even layer them with other significant necklaces from your collection to create an even deeper narrative. 

Three-Stone Rings

While it’s true that each engagement ring has its own unique story, the three-stone style ring has special additional meaning. The three stones represent the past, present, and future of the engaged couple. You can add further significance to this ring setting by using colored side-stones. Blue sapphires, denoting loyalty, are a big favorite, as are rubies, which symbolize passion, and emeralds, which represent enduring love. No matter how you mix up a three-stone ring, the tale it ultimately tells is of everlasting love. 

Custom Design

If there’s something you desire but can’t find in our cases, it’s time to try custom design. Custom design is a perfect way to tell your story through a piece of jewelry. In a simple, three-step process, we take your initial ideas and dreams and turn them into a stunning reality. Custom design can also be extremely affordable, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank. Contact us today to start your project. 


Stacking your jewelry is not only trendy, but a fantastic way to create meaning. Through layering your rings, for instance, you can tell your one-of-a-kind love story. Beginning with your engagement ring, you can layer on a diamond wedding band. On other fingers you can add stackable bands which denote special milestones and events like the birth of a child or a particular anniversary. The same is true for stacking bracelets, necklaces and earrings. You can make unique textures and visuals through layering while also crafting a symphony of stories.
