The Truth

#1

Atique Logo MarkMost jewelers advertise to men, but most jewelry is worn by women. What’s up with that? 

 

Jewelry stores, that are owned by men, advertise to men. Men then go into those man owned jewelry stores and they buy jewelry, which they give to a woman. Seems like we could use a few more ladies in that chain of events, doesn't it?

The truth of the matter is, women buy jewelry for themselves but as ladies, we're stuck shopping at stores that cater to men. Which is dumb.

And can we also take a quick minute to talk about how gender normative that is? Hey men, guess what? Women can buy jewelry for other women too!

At Atique, we know you don't need a dude in your life to want to own nice jewelry. You know, because you're an adult and you can buy your own damn jewelry. 

Katie Jones, Atique Co-founderI'm Katie. I'm the President of Atique and I'm dead set on NOT catering to men. There are enough stores that do that.

Men want to get the jewelry shopping experience over with as quickly as possible, but if you're a woman who is anything like me you want to enjoy the experience.

So give me a call. We can chat about the jewelry you like, look for other options and just enjoy looking at amazing vintage and antique jewelry together.

Let's tell the jewelry industry who's in charge, Ladies. After all, who rules the world? Girls!

Atique Logo MarkShopping for jewelry shouldn't suck.

Whether you're shopping online or in a store, shopping for jewelry can really suck.

Shopping Online

  • Photoshop and computer-generated images make it hard to even know what you're buying online. From the moment you click add to cart until your purchase arrives, you're crossing your fingers and hoping your new piece of jewelry looks even remotely like it did online.
    (Atique NEVER photoshops files. What you see is what you get!)

Shopping In Person

  • Pushy salespeople can pressure you to spend more than you budgeted when they only have their commission in mind. Even if you go to a store where their staff isn't paid commission, you can still feel pressured to buy after taking up 30 minutes or an hour of someone's time.  
    (Atique does not work on commission. Our year-long return policy drives us to deliver you the best experience and jewelry.)
