Wait, am I actually writing a blog post about why you should buy my jewelry?
Yes. I am.
We all have doubts when we buy something, right? Specially something new. Something we can’t touch or try on before we buy.
Last year, I spent a lot of time talking (mostly on social media) about Lalou, what I stand for, my jewelry making process etc.
So, I wrote this to kind of summarize everything and help you take the plunge.
I understand that this is my brand, so I am naturally biased. I tried to make this as unbiased as possible so you can make an informed buying decision.
After all, you don’t want to buy something that is not right for you. I don’t want that either. I want super happy customers.
1. Everything bearing the Lalou name is high quality
When I started my brand, the one thing I never wanted to compromise was quality.
You see, I grew up with Cartier being my standard in fine jewelry. Later on in life, working for luxury brands (including jewelry brands) has shaped the way I see, understand and appreciate jewelry. While Lalou is no match to the big jewelry names, I am determined to create pieces that are worth being called “luxury”.
This is something I focus on wholeheartedly every day and in every step of my jewelry making process.
Each person involved in the process is an expert in his/her field. I’ve chosen each of them in a pool of hundred others. Those that I have chosen have decades of experience in jewelry and craftsmanship and contribute to making each piece of jewelry bearing my brand name one of excellent craftsmanship and quality.
Furthermore, in my jewelry making process, there’s a technique that I use (and that a majority of brands do not) that makes a huge difference in the quality of jewelry pieces. What is it? It’s the “lost wax” technique. This is a HUGE secret in the industry that no one will ever tell you about. By using this technique, it allows me to guarantee you consistent high quality in ALL my jewelry pieces.
On top of all this, I personally supervise every step of the process by putting my quality control hat on, to double, triple and quadruple check that everything is top notch before being packed and shipped to you.
PS: If you want to know more about the “lost wax” technique, I covered everything you need to know in this post.
2. Jewelry that breaks the mold
Because aren’t we all tired of seeing everyone we know wearing the same jewelry?
That’s why my pieces are meant for the woman who is not afraid to be different and to flaunt her uniqueness.
Here are a few words that define my jewelry:
Modern. Unique. Different. Bold. Unconventional. Timeless. Colourful. Delicate. Uncommon. Sleek. Elegant. Remarkable design. Details that matter.
3. Embrace gemstones you never knew existed
This past year on my Instagram, I’ve been hosting Q+As about a wide range of gemstones (including birthstones). There are so many beautiful coloured gems that exist, other than the big three, and I really wanted to introduce them to you.
Don’t get me wrong, I love diamonds, emeralds and sapphires, and I know you do too. But, I promise, through the Q+As and the LALOU jewelry pieces, you will get to discover and fall in love with way more than just the big three. Pinky swear.
PS: All the gemstones used in Lalou Jewelry are ethically sourced. For more on this topic, please read here.
4. Proudly Canadian
I have to admit I’ve never really said this out loud. In general, I am not super comfortable telling people where I am from, even though, if you’ve been following me on social media, you can kind of guess. It’s a bit silly, but in this day and age, where everyone gets offended about nothing and everything, I usually like staying quiet and be judged for my jewelry rather than for my origins or place of business. Anyway, the cat’s out of the bag now. So now you know.
What I am most proud of though, it’s that through my dream of making and creating jewelry for all of you lovely ladies (and a few gentlemen), I have been contributing to the growth of small local businesses in the industry. Every artisan and supplier helping me create your beautiful pieces is either a family-owned small business or a woman-owned small business, all based out of Montreal, Canada.
5. Charming and reliable customer service
Also known as ME (enter a big smiley face here). I always make myself available to answer your questions, through email, chat or DM.
6. Hands down the most beautiful gift box
I want you to have the biggest smile on your face when you receive your jewelry piece. I’ve always believed that great packaging was a super important and necessary part of the experience.
So, I created a jewelry gift box that reflects everything LALOU: different and colourful.
I know I am biased, but it’s truly a beautiful gift box. And it makes me so happy when my customers give me positive feedback on their unboxing experience.
7. Fast & Free Shipping
That’s the least that I could do. With my lead times sometimes going over 4 weeks, I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer. So of course, I’m offering you fast and free shipping. And, if you’re in the Montreal area, you have the option of picking it up!
PS: All packages are 100% insured, all the time.
8. Nice to have a little treat every now and then
You are doing amazing at life and you deserve to spoil yourself, not only to celebrate big milestones in your career or personal life, but also to celebrate you every single day!
9. Jewelry makes you thin… and very clever.
All kidding aside, jewelry does make you feel empowered and beautiful. So what are you waiting for?
