Astounding quality and service – I was in a real fix when a jeweler I had contracted for an engagement ring flaked on me after months of assuring me the ring would be ready by Christmas. I went into Beyond Tradition on a prayer. I explained my situation to the owners and they immediately recommended an artist who surpassed all my wildest dreams as far as quality (a certified master goldsmith from Germany), and personal care (he had the ring ready in a week, three days before Christmas). This is the kind of quality and professionalism that Beyond Traditions represents and brings to the public.
As a side note, the jeweler that took my deposit and did nothing for several months but lead me on has work displayed at a neighboring 2nd St. jewelry store. Until now I had no idea the major differences that exists between each boutique in the downtown area. Some stores carry nice things while other stores carry exceptional artistry and accountability. Beyond Tradition is certainly a store of the second variety and I recommend stopping in, at the very least to see some of the finest quality jewelry in Austin, made by local artists.
Unique and affordable designer jewelry! – Really great store, owner Kappi Bliss, is so easy to love. She really knows how to pick unique and true artists to be represented in her store. I recently went to one of your great jewelry cocktail hours (get on her mailing list for these!! you don't want to miss them!) and I bought an awesome and unique bracelet by local Austin designer Sarah Scott, the bracelet is made with actual Chanel Chains that Sarah got from the old Chanel Warehouses! Is that not so Austin! It is truly a great piece and I love telling the story behind it. Thats just part of what makes this store so cool. Not to mention I love buying local and supporting other Austin small business owners! Kappi, also has some of the most beautiful turquoise and semi precious stone jewelry you will ever see. She also has a great line from Italy, that will really impress you (truly some of the most ornate and detailed metal designed jewelry I have ever seen) I mean take your breath away beautiful. If you want unique and conversational pieces, at affordable - dont break the bank prices. This is the local Austin store you need to check out! I stop by whenever I'm downtown, just to see what new pieces Kappi has brought in!
Amazing Jewelry and Fabulous Service – Stumbled into this hidden treasure while on vacation. Kappie treated us like guests in her home. When she didn't have what I wanted she took my information and contacted the artist directly. In less than 2 weeks I have custom made pieces at a very reasonable price. The place is great and Kappie is a true gem!
Genuinely personal service – Looked all over town for the perfect birthday gift for my girlfriend and found it at Beyond Tradition. Kappie the owner immediately felt like a good friend, and her service alone was enough to make my experience memorable. The earrings were perfect and designed by a local artist which was important to me. My girlfriend loved them and Beyond Tradition is now on my short list of gift destinations.
Editorial Review – Beyond Tradition is Austin's favorite boutique for eclectic one-of-a-kind jewelry.
Fabulous collection – Wonderful jewelry showroom; lovely pieces by local jewelers, reasonably affordable. Unique pieces of jewelry, most importantly, the owner is very friendly and attentive, it made me want to shop there. She showed me several pieces, even though I was hesitant to make an impulsive decision on a bracelet, she assured me that I could come back any time, and to think about the item, rare with many Austin boutiques. I did buy a beautfiul pearl and gold bracelet for a friend, who absolutely loved it!!! I will definitely go back for future jewelry purchases.
One of the most eclectic collections of jewelry – Kappie's wonderful shop on 2nd street has one of the most eclectic collections of jewelry I have found in Austin. Priced to fit in every budget too! She knows her artists first hand, and can chat up a storm about the details of each collection. She has trunk shows at least monthly, often more frequently, with designers on site to meet and greet. I highly recommend the shop if you are seeking unique pieces for yourself or someone special!
Your great great grandchildren will fight over this unique jewelry! – Kappie's knowledge of her designers' pieces was impressive. She is a great voice for the designers and obviously shares their passion of handcrafted, unique, and quality heirlooms. Your shopping experience will be non-pressured and one of the highlights of your day. Tibetan pieces. Turquoise. Hand crafted silver. Stop by... you'll fall in love with Kappie and her jewelry!
Beyond Tradition has the BATs beat in Austin! – Beyond Tradition has the BATS beat in Austin!
Enjoyable, no stress customer experience when talking with delightful owner Kappy (she is indeed a happy Kappy) about the luxurious items for sale many with an elegant and stylish Texan twist. The silver and turquoise jewelry is fabulous--come prepared for quality and to be oh-wowed! Cowgirl boots, too. Being a small business, Kappy really appreciates your patronage and shows it. Go!
