James Avery Announces Exciting New Blue Bell Partnership
Two Texas Companies Collaborate to Create the Sweetest Charm
KERRVILLE, TEXAS—James Avery Artisan Jewelry, a family-owned jewelry retailer based in Texas, is excited to announce the launch of its new Blue Bell® Ice Cream Charm. Featuring intricate details and a mixed-metal style, the charm is designed after a classic Blue Bell carton of ice cream.
“We are excited to partner with Blue Bell and craft an artful design that speaks to so many Texans,” says James Avery CEO John McCullough. “James Avery and Blue Bell fans alike will be able to purchase the first charm in this iconic Texas partnership.”
The charm is crafted from sterling silver and bronze, representing the iconic look of a half-gallon carton of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. In partnership with Blue Bell, James Avery artisans worked on enhancing every detail on the carton, like the recognizable Blue Bell cow and girl logo on the front and on top of the charm.
“We are honored to have James Avery create a Blue Bell charm,” says Ricky Dickson, Blue Bell CEO and president. “Watching our charm come to life has been a fun experience. James Avery is known for high-quality jewelry with amazing attention to detail. And we are excited to share this collaboration with everyone.”
With these beautiful details on the carton, this is the ideal style and design for James Avery charm collectors or someone with a sweet tooth. It’s also a great gift for someone celebrating a warm memory or love for all things Texas!
“Our designers focused on what makes Blue Bell unique, while creating something special that also speaks to what our customers look for in their favorite charms,” says Sarah Herr, Vice President of Merchandising and Design at James Avery. “We are always striving to create jewelry with beauty and meaning, and Blue Bell’s care of creating delightful flavors that remind us of special times is what ties the two brands together.”
