Mother’s Day is almost here, and if you are shopping a bit last minute (it’s not the timing, it’s the thought that counts anyway), don’t sweat it.
The local independent jewelry store, Steven Singer Jewelers is currently offering a deal to purchase something special for the most important woman in your life that also simultaneously supports local restaurants and healthcare heroes. According to a release, a portion of sales from Singer’s famous 24 karat gold and platinum dipped roses will go directly to purchase meals from Philadelphia restaurants that will be donated to essential hospital workers and first responders. The items are perfect for those looking to purchase something quickly as well. While the jewelry showroom on Jeweler’s Row is closed due to state-wide guidelines, Singer’s team will be shipping nationally with overnight shipping as an option for orders shipped on Thursday, May 7, by 2 p.m. (EST) or on Friday, May 8, by 2 p.m. (EST with an overnight rush charge.)
The popular independent jewelry store decided to start its charitable initiative to honor those who keep us safe while also supporting local restaurant businesses who have been hit hard by the current pandemic. The multi-month campaign with Singer’s dipped roses kicked off this week, and already many have jumped on the opportunity to lend their support and purchase something special for Mother’s Day. In fact, according to the release, from the Mother’s Day roses purchases to date, Singer and local restaurants supplied hundreds of free meals in Philadelphia, Detroit and Indianapolis to a variety of hospitals including Pennsylvania Hospital, Penn Presbyterian, Temple University Hospital and Jeﬀerson. Restaurant partners so far have included the Hungry Pigeon, El Fuego, Bazbeaux Pizza, Milk Boy, Del Rossi Cheesesteaks, New Wave Cafe, Manny’s Deli, Bucharest Grill, Rybread, Sabrina’s Cafe and others.
“Steve Singer Jewelers is spreading a little love starting this Mother’s Day for all the hard-working moms right now and also to our heroes on the front lines,” said owner and jeweler Steven Singer in a release. “My heart breaks for the world. It breaks for those that have lost loved ones, those who are ill, small businesses, independent restaurants and everyone affected by this ugly virus. We are unable to make masks or sanitizer, so we came up with an alternative way to say thank you to the unsung heroes on the front lines. For starters, we have scheduled over 2,000 meals to go out — and that is just the beginning. We want to brighten the days of nurses, doctors and hospital workers that continue to show up, risking their own safety to keep the public safe. We challenge other businesses that are in a position to do so to join us in giving back.”
The famous gold and platinum dipped roses being offered span 12 inches in length, and are made from real roses preserved and then dipped and trimmed in 24 karat gold or platinum. The best part? Being handcrafted by artisans, each rose is truly one-of-a-kind and unique. The roses also come with a lifetime guarantee and can be purchased for $59.95.
The roses come in four different sets: Royal Sapphire (Blue), Sweet Love (Lavender), Frozen (White) and the new Rose Gold. The products also make a great annual gift, each rose can be added to a bouquet yearly. However, Philadelphians can also purchase other items for this Sunday from Singer’s site as well including diamonds, jewels, bracelets, necklaces and everything in between.
By purchasing an item from Steven Singer Jewelers, Philadelphians will not only be providing a special memory and Mother’s Day keepsake while simultaneously helping first responders and restaurants in need, they will also be aiding Steven Singer in its mission to continuously supply hand-crafted and top-notch products. Being a local small business itself, the jewelry store has also been hit hard by the effects of COVID-19.
“Our showroom is closed and we’re working from home to help customers, who we consider our extended family, through phone, text, chat and Zoom video appointments,” said Singer in a comment. “Even though we’re a small family business, we’ve been selling online for almost 2 decades and helping customers across the United States, so helping long-distance is not new for us. However, closing our showroom is new and we are adapting to that change. That’s why in addition to feeding front line hospital workers, it was important to me to support the local restaurant industry. It’s a scary time and I challenge anyone that has the resources to spread love and support our community.”
