ALOR, a designer jewelry collection offered by Long Jewelers at their Virginia Beach showroom, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
To celebrate, the brand has released four limited edition cuff bracelet silhouettes that showcase the unmistakable looks that had shoppers buzzing from the very beginning. Only 40 of each design have been released, as a nod to ALOR’s 40 years in business, for a grand total of 160 pieces available.
In addition to the cable jewelry pieces that has become ALOR’s signature, the brand also offers 18kt gold collections, bridal jewelry, and even Swiss-made watches. Originally founded in 1979 by Sandy and Jack Zemer, the design studio is now led by their sons Ori and Tal, after whom the brand was named.
Sandy and Jack designed their jewelry’s distinctive look after realizing that the industry lacked luxury designer brands. It’s clear to see that their insight has paid off, as ALOR now celebrates four decades of success across 300 points of distribution all over the world.
The brand has a special place in the hearts of the Long Jewelers team as well, as it was the retailer’s first designer brand they added to their showroom almost 20 years ago.
“We were growing rapidly and wanted to begin bringing on designers to enhance our local appeal, but were a little concerned about the commitment as it’s almost like a marriage in a way,” said Jon Walp, the general manager of Long Jewelers. “We found that other store owners were having great success with the line so at the next JCK we approached them. It truly was like courting and took a while to ‘tie the knot,’ but it was successful enough that we began ‘courting’ other brands. The rest is history.”
