You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

October 27, 2017  |  Bridal Jewelry, Gift Ideas, New Arrivals
This holiday season you don’t have to believe in magic to bring
a little sparkle with you wherever you go!

They say “seeing is believing,” but I can tell you right now, even once you see Patty’s new collection of Cubic Zirconia jewelry, you still won’t believe they’re not diamonds.

cz_comp-1_blog_web_border

Pictures hardly ever do these beauties justice, but the quality of these CZ are top of the line. Anyone who knows Patty personally, knows she loves her diamonds, and she has a seasoned, trained eye when it comes to these, so you can rely on her to only put out the very best.

Not only are they great treats to give to yourself, these babies are gonna be hot items for the rapidly approaching holiday season. Their affordable price points and wide appeal of the different styles makes it easy for you to find fabulous gifts for women 18 to 80.

The designs Patty has created for this dazzling new line are so perfectly classic that they will instantly become a staple of your wear-everywhere, wear-anywhere jewelry collection. With varying sizes from the most delicate, understated, tiny touch of diamond to a fuller, more substantial CZ pendants, these timeless styles are equally suitable for everyday wear as they are for special, formal occasions.

The new CZ line is currently available at Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry in New York City and is coming this weekend to Circles in Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany.

Big Hearts Bring Big Help

As Valentine’s Day approaches, Patty Tobin is putting her heart into a very special private Trunk Show.
Hosted by Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP).
The event will benefit two inspiring Capital Region non-profits: Family Promise of the Capital Region & The Bus Stop Club.

This Thursday, February 9thPatty Tobin will showcase her beautiful handcrafted semi-precious gemstone and pearl jewelry collection from 11:30AM – 1:30PM for a private trunk show event at CDPHP‘s main office in Albany (visit our events page). For those unfamiliar with CDPHP, it is an award-winning, not-for-profit, physician-founded and doctor-directed health plan provider based up in Albany (where we’re from). The philanthropic arm of the company, CDPHP The Foundation, has earned a reputation for being an excellent and very active benefactor in the communities in which it operates.

Our work with CDPHP has highlighted one aspect of the company’s mission, which I think is particularly distinguishing and progressive. The Foundation goes above and beyond the bounds of what’s “normally” provided by your health care company by actually stepping out and investing real time and real money IN your community.

Logos of philanthropic partners participating

Their efforts “to support civic and cultural activities in CDPHP communities,” are genuinely felt in the communities they serve. This Thursday, for instance will bring together many different philanthropic persons and organizations to work collectively to raise monies for two unique organizations:

Family Promise of the Capital Region (recently named the Charity of Choice for 2017 by CDPHP) helps homeless families stay together and assists them with everything from food and shelter to helping them get back on their feet, find a job, and secure a home for their family in a way that is sustainable. 

The Bus Stop Club, is the second, and it devotes extra time, attention, support — and oftentimes just “fun” — in safe, supervised environments for the siblings of children diagnosed with chronic illness or developmental, physical, or intellectual disabilities; situations which often leave those kids inadvertently neglected or overlooked by parents and family members trying to cope/manage their other child’s all-consuming illness; leaving this child vulnerable to early onset depression.

These Rose Amethyst stones offer a rare shade of lavender…they are translucent, and yet, they still hold varying degrees of rich to pale purple with warm glimmers of honied yellow
that appear and disappear with
the light as you move.

Patty Tobin donation necklace to CDPHP's local Albany Charities

This is the gorgeous Rose Amethyst necklace Patty Tobin is donating to CDPHP for this event. The necklace, a $795 retail value, will be “raffled off” during Thursday’s event and ALL proceeds will go to Family Promise and The Bus Stop Club.

Patty has worked with, participated in, donated to more charitable organizations than any individual or business I’ve ever worked for — and I worked in fundraising for years. Like many Americans, she is a small business owner, bootstrapping her way through these challenging and uncertain times, and as such, I can attest to the fact that donating not only one’s product, but one’s time and energy as well, is no small thing. But, regardless, I have never seen Patty turn her back to any person or group in need of help. Indeed, for being such a tiny person, the woman really does have the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever met.

Gifts Husbands Have Come To Believe In

Happy customers like Ro (pictured below) and her husband Bob are what make our Holiday Season so delightful at Patty Tobin. We met this lovely couple during one of our Bloomingdale’s Trunk Shows in Huntington, Long Island this past December. Ro instantly fell in love with our Abalone Torsade and her husband Bob was right behind her to say, “Let’s get it for you!”

PT customer_ro

As with many of our customers, Ro needed the length of the necklace customized, which we were happy to do. Being able to make slight adjustments like lengthening and shortening necklaces or replacing a clasp to suit a customer’s taste, often translates into some of our  most rewarding customer service experiences. I think this is because it often gives us the opportunity to follow-up with our customers one-on-one outside of trunk shows or other busy events, which always seems to add a real personal element to the process.

In this case, Patty and Ro’s husband Bob were in touch via email throughout the customizing process from the time they left our Huntington show to the time they received Ro’s finished necklace. Not only were we able to adjust Ro’s necklace in time for the holidays, but Patty, of course, took the liberty of beautifully packaging and gift wrapping it, so it was already wrapped, bowed and ready to go for Bob to give to his lovely wife for the holiday.

Our relationships with our customers rarely end at the point of sale. Maybe it’s because we’re a family company, maybe it’s just because Patty and I are both friendly extroverted types, but whatever the reason, we do seem to make friends with our customers quite often. It’s like a little extended Tobin family. And I love that about us. We may just be in the business of selling jewelry, but I must say with the utmost sincerity that meeting people like Ro and Bob, and getting to see first hand how just a little bit more work on our part can go such a long way to making them super happy in the end…it truly is the most gratifying part of our job.
