As International Women’s Day approaches, I found myself thinking of the many influential women in our business that have astounded me with their talent and determination. One woman in particular is Sharon Wei, a local Columbus jewelry designer who focuses on freshwater pearls from her home country of China.
In 2004, a beautiful, vivacious and visibly pregnant young Sharon walked through the doors of Argo & Lehne with no scheduled appointment. As a side note, when Sharon walks into a room she has a happy glow that is truly infectious. Of course we were drawn to her persuasive personality, but when she showed us the quality and design of her workmanship we were hooked. She landed her first big account and we landed one of our hottest lines and a friend for life.
We have collaborated to introduce Sharon Wei Designs to bold women who enjoy working together to support other women’s growth. So, as we enter into March, why celebrate just one day? We will be celebrating the entire month! Join us in our support of 4 powerful local organizations (Dress for Success, the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, Choices and Freedom a la Cart) that encourage the growth and strength of women!
Each week of March we will highlight one of these 4 powerful women’s organizations. We will educate you on their cause, ways to donate and, best of all, how your purchases at Argo & Lehne can make an impact! Follow our Shine for a Cause event site to learn more.
Shine for a Cause!
Step One! Select an Organization that really resonates with you. If you purchase a Sharon Wei piece anytime during the week the organization is highlighted we will give 10% of the purchase to their cause.

If you bring in a requested donation item on the Tuesday night of the organization’s event you will receive 15% off all new Argo & Lehne in-stock jewelry and 10% off in-stock giftware! In addition, we will give back 10% of all in-stock purchases to their cause!!
Let’s Get Together. Be Bold. And Support Women!!!
