Do you like jewelry? Of course you do! Get ready for a one-of-a-kind jewelry pop-up event that’s coming to Fayetteville in September!
Roberson’s Fine Jewelry will host a Cynthia Ann Jewels pop-up event featuring the designer Cynthia Ann herself, at Glo Limited in Fayetteville, on Sept. 19 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
According to Trish Roberson, owner of Roberson’s Fine Jewelry in Little Rock, the event will feature a large selection of Cynthia’s work . This pop-up event will be a great opportunity for customers to see more jewelry than is typically possible in store. “When I do go to market, I never buy and have this much inventory to show somebody. It’s just impossible,” Roberson says. “So, to be able to see that much inventory at one time is really unique and really special.”

Roberson loves the intimate connection she develops with her clients when picking out jewelry, saying that she gets to play a role in the “best moments of [her] clients’ lives.” Selecting a piece of jewelry is a personal interaction, and one that Roberson considers fulfilling.
This personal connection is even greater with Cynthia Ann jewelry, Roberson says. Cynthia Ann-designed pieces are centered around historical artifacts, such as coins, medallions and crosses, that have been collected from around the world and are often hundreds of years old.
Cynthia Ann began collecting historical objects after making an overseas trip in the wake of her mother’s death. Her collection eventually inspired her to create jewelry centered around these singular items.
Because many of the artifacts are so old, they are one-of-a-kind. Sheryl Roncketto, a Roberson’s Jewelry salesperson, says the uniqueness of each piece draws people to Cynthia Ann’s jewelry. The artifact designs range from saints to animals to images of Christ, she says, and people gravitate towards pieces that “speak to them in some way.”

Some of the historical objects date back as far as 800 A.D. “This is some of the most beautiful jewelry in the world. All of it has a historical significance, and it is all very personal and meaningful,” Roncketto says.
While many designers might reproduce the objects before putting them into jewelry, Cynthia Ann uses the original item in each piece. As a result, no piece of Cynthia Ann jewelry is alike. “A lot of designers, I think their pieces look like the next piece and the next piece,” Roncketto says. “All of her pieces are one-of-a-kind.”
Roberson encourages anyone interested in jewelry to come to the event to see the available pieces and hear Cynthia Ann speak. If a piece strikes your fancy, she suggests seizing the opportunity while it’s available due to the rarity of the centerpieces. “There’s no guarantee that if they come back that it’s going to be there because they’re truly one-of-a-kind,” she says.
During the event, Cynthia Ann will be on-hand and will tell the story behind her jewelry and what drives her as a designer. Both Roberson and Roncketto agree that hearing Cynthia Ann will be a highlight for any jewelry fan. “To get to meet the actual designer and owner of the company, you don’t get to do that every day.” Roncketto says.
The pop-up event will be held in Fayetteville at Glo Limited, which is located at 577 E. Millsap Road.
