Savannah Store Closing Announcement


SAVANNAH STORE PERMANENTLY CLOSING IN MAY - WEBSITE TO REMAIN OPEN & ACTIVE

2020 was off to a great start until the Corona Virus came along, and now we are all understandably nervous about the future. One thing that I have been sure about for the last several months is that I am ready to permanently close the Savannah store this May, and move the business to online-only. This decision has nothing to do with the pandemic that we are facing, but it has sped up my timeline being that it’s in everyone’s best interest if we all stay at home and shop online!

Beginning today, everything is 20% off in-store and online with free shipping! Use discount code “THANKS20” at checkout.

WHY AM I CLOSING THE STORE?

Owner & Designer, Zia Sachedina

This year Zia Couture Jewelry is turning 15 years old, and I will be celebrating my 40th birthday! As I enter into this new chapter, I find myself with a renewed sense of passion and wanderlust, and I am ready to embark on this next phase of life both professionally and personally.

Over the last several years, we have developed a loyal following online and we will continue to sell our unique jewelry, both the classics and new collections, on ZiaCouture.com. We will also have select collections available in some of Savannah’s newest and coolest hotels and boutiques!

I am extremely excited for the freedom that this change will mean for me. While I plan to keep a home base in Savannah, I will be spending more and more time overseas, continuously sourcing new and exciting jewelry for the online store and continuing to be inspired by the exotic, faraway lands that have so influenced my brand!

I am proud to have started this business as a hopeful 24-year-old, and I am tremendously grateful for your support over the last 15 years! Thank you for all you have done to make this next step in my journey possible!

THE FUTURE OF ZIA COUTURE JEWELRY

Zia Couture Jewelry has always been about telling a visual story and celebrating exotic cultures of far away lands and the accessories that they create. I’ve always strived to help women who wear my jewelry to feel confident, sexy, and exotic! I plan to continue doing just that through these outlets:

Shop online at www.ziacouture.com
Hotel gift store collaborations & other fine retailers.
Occasional pop-ups and art fairs.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram & Facebook @ZiaCoutureJewelry, and don’t miss our email announcements of special sales exclusively for members of our BlingBucks Rewards Program.

While we will no longer have a physical store for you to peruse our collections, I will continue to follow my passion of creating and sourcing unique and exotic jewelry, with the goal of empowering women to look and feel fabulous, all while supporting ethically sourced, fairly traded pieces, as well as growing my own globally inspired collections.
