What makes Sarah Cornwell Jewelry so special? Here’s what we think sets us apart from the rest:
1) SCJ makes you feel beautiful.
First and foremost, it is our intent to create jewelry that makes our customers feel confident in themselves. We want them to feel fearless and beautiful all day, every day.
2) We hand pick our gemstones and freshwater pearls ever year in NYC.
We don’t just purchase all of our materials online. Instead we take the time to handpick our gemstones and freshwater pearls in person, to ensure that we’re only providing you with the best ones.
3) Our pieces always have a design twist.
When designing our jewelry we like to give our pieces a surprise design twist, such as an asymmetrical pattern or a gemstone in an unexpected place. We like to shake things up a bit!
4) Our customers are special to us and we want them to know it.
We have a true passion for wanting to understand our customers . We always make it a habit to go out of our way to make sure our customers are happy with the pieces they purchase from us.
5) We’re aware of the trends, but we want you to stand out!
Our awareness of style trends keeps our jewelry designs fresh. However, we don’t like to stick too close to the trends, as some styles are timeless and we want you to stand out!
6) Even the smallest purchase is treated like the most extravagant.
Even if our customers purchase only a small pair of earrings, we treat it like our most expensive pearl necklace. We create each piece with the same amount of dedication and hard work, because we truly believe our customers deserve the best.
7) We do our best to make your design dreams a reality.
We understand that sometimes you may fall in love a piece of jewelry, but that there is one small detail that you would prefer were different. If you let us know what you want to change, we will try our hardest to make it happen.
8) Our 3 daughters (ages 6,7,8) say our jewelry “is awesome!”
Even our kids love our designs, and you know how picky kids can be!
9) SCJ has been in business for over 15 years.
SCJ was founded in 2001 and we’re still going strong!
10) You will get stopped regularly and have people say “I love your jewelry, where did you get it?” or “what is that amazing stone you are wearing!?”
As we said before, we want you to stand out from the crowd! So when you wear our jewelry, you’re practically guaranteed a compliment!
11) Gifting SCJ is always a good choice!
Picking out gifts for all occasions can be difficult, but when gifting our jewelry you can feel rest assured that the recipient will love our special designs.
12) SCJ is a family owned and operated business and all pieces are handcrafted in Doylestown, PA.
We believe in keeping our team tight-knit and in always crafting the jewelry ourselves. This keeps us from getting too caught up in the big picture, and it allows us to focus on the small things, like the hand-stamped details on your necklace.
13) Our designs are always versatile and easy to wear.
You have a PTA event at your kid’s school? Wear SCJ. You have a work meeting at 1pm? Wear SCJ. You’re having drinks with friends? Wear SCJ! Our jewelry is created for the everyday woman. We know life can be chaotic, and we want you to always feel confident and beautiful. This is why we design our pieces to fit every occasion life throws your way.
We hope you enjoyed reading about the 13 Reasons to Love SCJ, and hope that you have few reasons of your own!

One of the most popular questions we receive from customers is,” How do I safely clean my jewelry?” So, we went ahead and created a video that takes you step-by-step through 2 ways to properly clean your jewelry, including how to clean pieces with gemstones and freshwater pearls. Both of the ways we show are completely safe and should leave your pieces sparkling and clean.
Option #1: Wipes/Pads
Safely used on? Sterling Silver and 14k Gold (best used on stamped charms and other metal charms)
Where to buy? Wipes
Option #2: Jewel Brite
Safely used on? Freshwater Pearls, Natural Gemstones, Sterling Silver & 14k Gold
Where to buy? Jewel Brite
When you’re not wearing your jewelry, keep it in a sealed bag or jewelry box to keep it away from oxygen (this with help to prevent tarnishing).
We hope you enjoyed our first Youtube tutorial! If you have any questions or suggestions for future videos, please comment below!

If you have taken a stroll through the streets of Doylestown, PA lately, you may have noticed a lovely boutique called Lotus. The shop sits conveniently on East State Street, right next to Nonno’s Coffee Parlor. Recently, those of us at SCJ had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with the owner of Lotus, Erin McLaughlin, on the photo shoot of our Spring/Summer 2016 jewelry collection. Erin helped showcase the jewelry, by kindly providing the clothing for our models, as well as styling them. We just fell in love with her shop, and Erin was so enjoyable to work with that we felt it only appropriate to introduce her to you!
Erin opened Lotus Apparel & Home about 3 and half years ago, after working in retail for over 20 years, as a manager and buyer. Her experience was gained in the same retail space where Lotus is located today. When the previous owner decided to close up shop, Erin saw it as the perfect opportunity to open a shop of her very own.
The inspiration for her career choice came from watching her mother while growing up, who is an avid lover of fashion and has always had a great sense of style. As one of 7 children, the middle of 5 girls, Erin looked to fashion as a way to express her individuality. Her personal style, which she describes as a, “mix of edgy and feminine with a bit of bohemian,” can definitely be seen reflected in the style and look of Lotus.
For Erin, Lotus has been more than just a shop, it has been a new beginning. As Lotus means “new beginning,” the success of the shop has been symbolic of the fresh start she was hoping for. She thanks the encouragement and support from her family and friends, as well as loyal customers and other local business owners for Lotus becoming what it is today.
Erin likes to start her day at Lotus by checking her email and grabbing a coffee from Nonno’s. The shop is open 7 days a week, so most days you will find Erin there, but her mom, Jane, is occasionally there to offer a helping hand. When Erin isn’t running the shop floor, she is always on the hunt for new clothing and jewelry pieces to offer at Lotus. Erin says,
“When buying for Lotus, I look for well made clothing from both well known designers, to small up and coming designers. I don’t purchase any clothing through catalogs or emailed line sheets, as I like to see everything up close and feel the fabrics. I purchase items I’m hoping customers will grab out of their closets on a regular basis and feel great wearing them.”
As for what can be expected of Lotus in the future, Erin says she is one to live more in the present. She thinks she might want to open another Lotus one day, maybe near the beach, but is perfectly content for the moment with her small shop in Doylestown, as she loves the town and the people in it.
Make sure the next time you’re in town, to go and introduce yourself to Erin and to look out for some SCJ jewelry at Lotus! The shop is located at:
8 East State St
Doylestown, PA 18901
