In New York City on February 20th, the media went crazy over the baby shower for Meghan Markle. Co-hosts, Serena Williams and Genevieve Hillis didn’t hold back on any of the frills at this intimate event. It was a two-day shower held at The Mark Hotel which included a flower arranging lesson, a dessert tasting and a scrumptious over the top dessert table. All were dressed to the nines in fashion-forward ensembles, including a knock out red jumpsuit worn by Amal Clooney.
Traditional Baby Shower Gifts are our Specialty – Argo & Lehne Jewelers
- Baby Cups & Feeding Spoons – remain the most popular gifts of all our baby goods items.
- Monograms everywhere!! May we make a suggestion? Our favorite monogram font for girls is the intricate Interlocking font and for boys is Roman 4.

Purple – combining the passion of red and the calm of blue – conveys balance and bliss, and a hint of mystery. Those of us who love it see it as a powerful color. Think of the purple robes and amethyst jewels of royalty. Amethyst was once up there with diamonds, emeralds, and rubies in rarity and preciousness, and thus was considered crown jewels material. Then in the early 19th century, a large deposit was discovered in Brazil and suddenly, supply and demand being what it is, amethysts became more plentiful and less valuable. We see that as a plus – amethysts haven’t changed. If anything, they are better with more from which to choose. But now they’re not just for royalty and the wealthy but are readily available to all of us!
Color is the sublimely beautiful main attraction of the amethyst. It is always purple, but can range from a light lavender or even purplish pink to very dark, almost black purple, and also reddish to a more bluish hue. Hue, tone, and saturation determine the color quality. Hue is the basic color (i.e., reddish purple); tone is the darkness or lightness; saturation is the amount or intensity of the color, or what Bob Argo calls “juiciness”. Stones fetching higher prices are medium to dark but not too dark, slightly reddish purple and highly saturated. However, some prefer the lighter, more delicate pastels, which are very lovely in their own right.Continue Reading
It’s that time of year again to give back! Each year we have selected a new cause that resonates with our customers and our community. This year we were introduced to Amethyst, an Alvis recovery program for local women and their families, by a dear customer and friend, Priscila Teixeira.
We are excited to announce that Argo & Lehne showcase the paintings of local Columbus artist, Frances McEwan Monfort…again! If you aren’t familiar, Frances’ exhibit here in July 2016 was a huge success. Our customers were blown away by her paintings and have requested her return. Frances has been creating more works and we will see her paintings in the showroom beginning January 5.Continue Reading
