Golden Panther Ring: Treasure Hunting in Louisville, KY #LoveGold

IMG_0686 IMG_0708

A day of treasure hunting in Louisville, Kentucky was like a race against the clock! I had only one day, with a few hours of daylight, because no one likes driving home in the dark. Yesterday’s post featured my visit to Merkley Kendrick Jewelers which was a lovely time but I left treasure-less. Next up was Isaacs Gallery, found with a Google search which resulted in this description: specializes in antique and estate jewelry, as well as fine antiques. Sounds perfect! Our ten minute drive over there resulted in a hand written sign that read, “Sorry we closed at noon today.” I could only sadly peer into the window and lust from the outside. Again, empty-handed our next stop was Jordan Clines Jewelry recommended for their vintage watches. Their storefront was in a quaint area of Louisville, which I could tell was growing quickly. We rang their bell a few times, only to realize that on Fridays they were by appointment only! Oh no! Was I going to leave Louisville without any gold rings?!

With the sun setting and time running out, I had remembered a small jewelry shop located in a strip mall plaza that I spotted out my car window while driving to MK Jewelers. With a new attitude of hope, we back-tracked our way there! St. Matthew’s Jewelers was the place I had seen and we walked in ready to look! Right away I spotted a double panther ring in two-tone 14k gold, with the white gold side diamond cut to give it a unique look. Both panthers had sapphires in their eyes! I knew the ring had to be a part of my collection! The owner was super nice and I walked away with a great deal and a fun treasure-hunting trip! Until next time!
