Our Story

Mission: Miss Em’s goal is to make every woman, no matter what shape, size, height, etc. look nice and accessorize them with beautiful pieces that are at a reasonable price for the everyday woman. Our primary concerns is making women feel beautiful on the inside by accessorizing them and making them more confident on the outside.

Background:

Miss Em’s Fine Jewelry and Accessories was started by Emily Smith (formerly Madden), as a student at The Ohio State University, majoring in Marketing and Fashion Merchandising. During high school and college, Emily worked in an upscale consignment store where she learned about the retail industry and some of the challenges associated with running a retail business. While attending classes at Ohio State, Emily was faced with a project designed to have students create their own business plan in order to learn the essentials of running and sustaining a successful business. Emily’s project idea came from her dream of one day opening up her own jewelry business. She did her research by talking with women who owned and worked in jewelry stores, boutiques and high end retail stores. From this, she constructed a business plan with the realization that what began as a class project could be the opportunity to achieve her dream.

Starting off small, she began purchasing jewelry for friends and family, only to have them pay her back for the items she selected. Eventually after getting so many requests for different jewelry pieces, Emily decided that it was a perfect time to launch her new jewelry business, Miss Em’s Fine Jewelry and Accessories.

What We Do & How You Can Benefit:
The key to Miss Em’s success is that we host jewelry parties in our customers’ homes …we makes house calls! Hosting customers are encouraged to invite their friends, family, coworkes and neighbors to attend their jewelry event!   Many of the events often become reunions!  Our jewelry is often seen in larger department and retail merchanges, but at a fraction of the price.  It is our goal to find trendy jewelry pieces, that won’t break the bank.  We won’t spend $100 for a necklace, so we definitely do not expect you to either!

As a reward for the hosting customer parties, the host receives a credit towards jewelry based on that party final sales amount. If you or anyone you know might be interested in hosting a party, make sure to contact Emily. Jewelry parties are also great fundraisers, woman’s club meetings or conferences, anytime where you have women together and they would like to do a little shopping. Can’t host or make an event?  Shop our gorgeous selection of women’s jewelry, including fashion bracelets, fashion earrings, fashion necklaces and fashion scarves.  The prices are reasonable and the selection is great! If you think you have an upcoming event which would be a great fit for Miss Em’s, just call Emily to discuss.

Thanks for taking the time to understand our story and what we do. We look forward to helping you achieve your ultimate beauty.
