Bejeweled Roses For Mother’s Day By Steven Singer


Steven Singer Jewelers helps you celebrate Mother’s Day with a special gift that helps you send Mom love while you support local restaurants and healthcare heroes.

The man that everyone loves to hate is spreading love by using a portion of sales from Singer‘s famous 24 karat gold and platinum dipped roses to purchase meals from Philadelphia restaurants and donating them to essential hospital workers and first responders. For owner Steven Singer, this is a win-win that thanks those tirelessly working to treat Coronavirus patients, and to support an industry in crisis during these unprecedented times.

Mother’s Day has traditionally been one of the busiest and most beloved weeks of the year for a local independent jewelry store like Steven Singer Jewelers. This year, the holiday takes on a brand new meaning for the expert jewelers at Singers as it kicks off a multi-month campaign to give back and be a good community partner during the Coronavirus global pandemic.

Starting this week, a portion of sales from Singer’s famous gold and platinum dipped roses will support food orders from recovering restaurants that will be donated to local hospitals. The famed roses are 12 inches in length, and are made from real roses preserved and then dipped and trimmed in 24 karat gold or platinum. Each rose is handcrafted by artisans, so just like snowflakes, each rose is one-of-a-kind. The roses start at $59.95 and feature a lifetime guarantee.

This Year’s Line Up Includes:
Rose Gold (New) – The brand new color for 2020 is ROSE! Singer’s popular, fully dipped classic gold rose now comes deeply dipped in rose gold. Add something new to a previous bouquet or start a new one with Steven’s brand NEW Rose Gold Rose! We recommend that you make it a threesome by pairing this rose with our Classic Yellow Gold and our Classic Platinum Roses for a luxurious bouquet sure to stand out.

  • Royal Sapphire (Blue) – Blue Roses symbolize the ultimate and the unattainable. I’m lucky to have you in my life every single day. A real rose picked at the height of its beauty, preserved, and trimmed in 24 karat pure gold.
  • Sweet Love (Lavender) – Inspired by the love Howard Stern and his wife, Beth, share – Introducing our Sweet Love Rose; a never before seen Lavender color. The perfect gift for any mother figure in your life, whether she’s a sweetheart, family member, or friend.
  • Frozen (White) – Get lost in the moment on minutes of frozen time. This Frozen Rose captures the beauty of a glistening falling snowflake.
  • I Love You (Pink) – Make her blush with Singer’s Blush 24kt Gold Dipped Rose. This soft pink color symbolizes love and admiration. Tell her “ I Love You” with a real rose dipped in real gold that lasts forever. This is the perfect color to start her collection or a must have for her growing bouquet. You can thank us later when she can’t stop blushing.

    **Sorry The Pink Rose is Sold Out but will be restocked after Mother’s Day

On top of dipped roses, Steven Singer’s website also has a host of other ideas to show Mom the love – especially during unprecedented times when we all need the support of our families more than ever. Other gift ideas for this Mother’s Day include everything from diamonds to her favorite jewels, from bracelets to necklaces and everything in between.  While the jewelry showroom on Jeweler’s Row at 739 Walnut Street is closed due to state-wide guidelines, Singer’s team is shipping nationally with free shipping for orders placed by Wednesday, May 6, 2020 by 2:00pm (EST), and overnight shipping as an option for orders shipped by Thursday, May 7, 2020 by 2:00pm (EST).

Restaurant partners so far have included Hungry Pigeon, El Fuego, Bazbeaux Pizza, Milk Boy, Del Rossi Cheesesteaks, New Wave Cafe, Manny’s Deli, Bucharest Grill, Rybread, Sabrina’s Cafe and others.  “We want to brighten the days of nurses, doctors and hospital workers that continue to show up, risking their own safety to keep the public safe,” added Singer. 


Today Get a Tattoo and Pizza for a Year; Or Skip the Tattoo and Get Free Pizza for Lunch

Philly continues to blow up on the food scene as another successful chain moves into Center City. Today The D.C.-founded chain of community-focused pizza shops. &pizza,  known for its devoted ampersand-tattooed employees (The Tribe the owner Michael told me the, handmade pies, and craft sodas. It’s at 1430 Walnut Street or as we like to refer to it as The Cheesecake Factory building. It’s on 15th Street closest to Bookbinders’ er I mean Applebees.


Last night I attended the VIP sneak preview party, and had too much delicious pizza. I have some pixs below, but first the important news. FREE PIZZA On opening day at 11AM, free pies will be given to the first 215 guests in line (a nod to the 215 area code). The first five guests in line who request a tattoo of the brand’s signature ampersand, will receive it gratis, in addition to free pizza for a year. The brand makes the same offer to its employees – the &pizza Tribe – and to date more than 60 Tribe members have signed their allegiance on skin. (It is a cool tattoo I think, hmm pie for a year, it’s tempting.)


Michael Lastoria (r), chief of executive and co-founder of &pizza, the Washington-based fast-casual pizza concept rapidly expanding in the Mid-Atlantic region., with Center City’s GM who’s name in the excitement I didn’t get. But I’d love to have for
my Liberty Press Column next week. Guess I’ll have to stop by again.

&pizza prides itself on serving up experiences in addition to fresh pizza. Guests have the
opportunity to craft their own individual pie (with unlimited ingredients) or choose from nine
signature pizzas, such as the meat heavy Maverick, the egg-topped Farmer’s Daughter, or the
Gnarlic (exactly what you think, but so much better), each one with its own unique flavor profile.
The pizza shop uses fresh ingredients and works with local producers to create its signature
and seasonal menu of pizzas, snacks, craft sodas and artisanal teas. Guests can order ahead
on the app or dine-in. &pizza has created a product that is distinctly their own, and opportunity
for its employees and customers to be part of something greater that gives back to the
community, from its innovative hiring practices to its &CHARITY program.

This is the brand’s 17th shop and first outside the D.C. area. For &pizza, Philadelphia embodies  what their trademark ampersand has come to be represent – a “go anywhere, do everything”  lifestyle.  &pizza also commits itself to each and every new neighborhood it joins. Every shop  is designed to reflect the neighborhood it serves. For &pizza Walnut, the brand partnered with  local architectural firm [BOX]WOOD to bring the shop to life with dramatic Philly flair.

Additionally, through &CHARITY, the brand’s localized charity arm, &pizza will launch its  signature Buy One, Give One campaign for Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15. For  every pizza sold on those two days, &pizza will donate a pizza to either the Philadelphia Mural  Arts Program or The Attic Youth Center, two respected local charities. Pizza

My favorite pie – The OG, but I loved the Meat Lover Pie too. These are the actual sizes of the pies
you’ll get. They’re priced at about $10


Customers customize their own pizzas with unlimited free toppings, except shrimp, there’s a nominal fee for those guys.



Philly known for it’s craft beer, here you can get craft soda. It’s very sweet. The cherry reminds me of a slurpee.hd1_3367-custom
