Stop by Versant Saturday, April 20th, for our spring Sorrelli Trunk Show! Just in time for bridal and prom season, our Sorrelli representative will be bringing both classic collections as well as limited edition and one-of-a-kind styles!
Designed locally in Kutztown, PA, Sorrelli Jewelry is made with beautiful Swarovski crystals in bold styles.
A favorite for brides and their bridal parties, Sorrelli has a color collection to complement any wedding palette.
With tiered discounts for purchasing multiple pieces, it is a great time to grab your gals and do some accessory shopping! We will be serving light snacks and sparkling rosé bellinis to make girls’ day out even more fun.
Sorrelli Jewelry is also a beautiful way to accessorize for prom! From amazing statement earring and necklace styles to more minimal collections that still have a touch of sparkle, they bring something for everyone.
We love the beautiful jewel tones of their Mahogany collection and soft pinks and champagne hues of their Neutral Territory and Satin Blush pieces!
You don’t always need a special occasion to add some sparkle to your life at our Sorrelli Trunk Show! We love the soft pastel and bright pink pieces to bring some spring into our wardrobe.
With Easter the next day, maybe you will find the perfect piece to dress up your Sunday best!
In addition to our tiered discount for the show, we will be hosting store-wide specials and raffling off a beautiful Sorrelli piece!
Valentine’s Day is almost here! Need some gift ideas for that special someone or some fun things to hint at for yourself? We’ve made it easy this year with our top ten picks to bring the love this Valentine’s Day. Flowers wilt within the week and chocolate gets eaten as soon as it is opened, but jewelry will let your love sparkle on all year long!
Compass Rose- Let Love Guide the Way
We love our beautiful Compass Rose necklaces and bracelets. Not only are they elegant, but they have a lovely meaning as well. Keep the sentiment that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home” or choose one of our custom cards tailored to different relationships and occasions. We are particularly fond of the new two-tone necklace with rose gold for the romantic-at-heart.
Pandora Bracelets- Charm Her
Pandora is a classic choice for a memorable and meaningful gift. Not only is it alluring, the thought that goes into choosing a charm makes it a personal experience. We love some of the new bracelet styles that have been introduced in the past year. Not only are they a great way to start a Pandora bracelet for someone who is new to the charm world, they are a wonderful way to give life to an old collection of charms. The new open bangle has become one of our best-selling bracelets, and for good reason. Not only is it easy to take on and off, but it comes with spacers to keep your charms in place and fits more naturally to your wrist than a round bracelet. The new heart lock bracelet is also a stunning addition to the collection.
The great thing about the curated collections that are released for Valentine’s Day is that they are designed around a common theme. This makes it easy to add some beautiful jewelry pieces that coordinate with the charms to make a well-rounded gift! We love the “Love Locks” pieces from this years collection. The “You & Me” ring is also a sweet piece for a young girl.
Sorrelli Jewelry- Sparkle Your Way Into Her Heart
Does your girl love to sparkle? Sorrelli Jewelry will help her shine! Crafted with Swarovski crystals, this locally designed jewelry line (from Kutztown, PA!) makes both statement pieces and everyday gems to help your special someone get her glitter on. Even better- until Valentine’s Day, purchases in Sorrelli Jewelry of $100 or more will receive a beautiful pair of blush stud earrings for free!
Stacking Bracelets- Create a One-of-a-Kind Collection
Does your special someone celebrate every day with her own arm party of stacking bracelets? Let us help you create a coordinated stack to express your love and fit into her personal style and personality!
Thortiuda- Call Her Angel
Our Thortiuda pendants are a staff favorite- they are one of the pieces of jewelry we get the most compliments on! Classic in style but unique enough to stand out in a crowd, these necklaces open to allow the chime inside to be interchanged for different colors. Named for the Thai word for angel, the necklace is designed from traditional necklaces meant to call your guardian angel. Each colored chime has a different meaning- choose one that best captures your sentiment for the season!
Pandora Rose- For the Romantic
The vintage color of rose gold is popular with the bohemian and romantic personalities alike. Pandora Rose, a proprietary metal blend that combines sterling silver and copper, gives the beautiful hue of rose gold without the price of a solid rose gold piece. This year’s Valentine’s Day collection has some fun new additions in the Pandora Rose. We love the typography-inspired “I Love You” dangle charm. Combining both silver and the Pandora Rose, it is a great way to start on a two-tone bracelet!
WinterLemon- You are my Sun, My Moon, and All My Stars
We love the celestial pieces in our locally-made WinterLemon jewelry, which are handmade from precious metals and genuine gemstones. We think they are a stylish way to express the heavenly nature of love. Not only do they let you show your love for your special someone, they let you show your love for you community as well be supporting a local artist!
Diamonds Are Always a Good Idea
Elizabeth Taylor once said “Big girls need big diamonds”- and for good reason! A girl may have dreams of silver and CZs, but give a woman a diamond! One of the strongest materials on earth, diamond jewelry is an investment piece made to last. Unlike silver fashion jewelry which is not meant for everyday use and will not stand the test of time, giving a gift of gold and precious gemstones means giving a gift that can be worn for decades with the same sparkle.
Alex and Ani- A Gift for the Gals
Celebrating Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends? Drop them a sweet treat with one of Alex and Ani’s new Valentine’s Day bangles! We love the new “Mon Amie” bangle as a way of celebrating friendship- it translates to “My Friend” from French. Add a sparkling Swarovski bangle or one of the new beaded pieces in the shiny rose finish for an extra touch of sparkle!
Chase & Wonder- Humor Her
Does your special someone always tell you that one of her favorite things about you is your sense of humor? Check out some of our fun tongue-in-cheek gifts from upstairs in Haven! Does she always have an overflowing armful of things as she heads out the door to work or school? Get her one of our Chase & Wonder “Foxy Lady” totes!
Is one of your favorite times of the day the early morning when you sit side-by-side reaching optimal levels of caffeine together? Get a matching set of His and Hers coffee mugs. Fill them with some chocolates or a gift card to her favorite coffee place to add an extra treat!
The Gift of Choice
Are you feeling overwhelmed this Valentine’s Day? Give her the gift of choosing her own perfect gift with a Versant gift card. If you want to have something fun for her to unwrap, pick one of our fun (and affordable!) Katie Loxton pouches or wallets to hide the gift card in- when she opens it up she will get an extra surprise.
Stop by Versant to see all of our picks and person! While you are here, save yourself some time (and tape)- we will gift wrap your treasures in our signature wrapping for free. As always, thank you to all of our wonderful customers for choosing to #shopsmall with us and support our local small business.

There is a new designer in town and they have really brought the sparkle! Our featured designer this month is a new arrival at Versant, Sorrelli Jewelry. Locally designed in Kutztown, PA, Sorrelli is known for their gorgeous pieces adorned with semi-precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals.
Sorrelli’s Local Beginnings
Sorrelli was founded in the early 1980s by Kutztown University graduate Lisa Oswald. After moving to New York, Lisa began designing jewelry she could wear to friends’ parties in downtown Manhattan. She began her jewelry enterprise out of her Brooklyn loft, where she made each piece by hand on her kitchen table.
At the time, her twin sisters helped with the sales and marketing of Lisa’s creations. The three sisters come from a strong Italian-American heritage; Sorrelli is an appropriation from the Italian word for sisters, sorrel. In the late 1980s, Lisa and her husband Kermit moved to back to Pennsylvania where they converted and 18th century barn into their jewelry design studio and started a family.
Lisa & Kermit still live in Pennsylvania, and continue to produce the signature designs for which Sorrelli has become known and adored around the world. Sorrelli remains a family business, with the second generation of Oswalds joining the ranks at the company headquarters in Kutztown, PA.
Sorrelli graces the jewelry boxes of celebrities, career women, and jewelry lovers of every background. The Sorrelli devotee ranges in age from her teens to her 90s (and certainly beyond). Any woman who loves a generous helping of glamour and glitter in her life is naturally drawn to the beautiful handcrafted pieces in Sorrelli’s many collections.
Each piece starts out as a metal silhouette. The base metal of most designs is brass; each piece is plated in an antique gold-tone, antique silver-tone, bright gold-tone, bright silver-tone, or gunmetal finish.
Each collection features a unique mixture of semi-precious and synthetic cabochons and crystals. As a Swarovski® crystallized elements brand partner, Sorrelli uses genuine Swarovski® crystals in the majority of its jewelry. Semi-precious cabochons like desert jasper, reconstructed turquoise, freshwater pearls, and tiger’s eye are also used in their bold, beautiful pieces.
Within the main collection, Lisa Oswald has her own signature collection that features a more casual, bohemian aesthetic. These pieces are great to add a touch of sparkle to your everyday look.
Beyond their core collection, Sorrelli designs limited collections featuring unique color combinations to create the perfect palette for every season. We love this year’s holiday Black Onyx collection!
We strive to seek out unique pieces with a local footprint, and Sorrelli is a wonderful addition to our jewelry family. Stop by to see all of the new pieces in person!
