These last few weeks have seen many of our Washington, DC neighbors under the strain of the longest federal shutdown in American history. From our home in the nation’s capital, we’re proud to count among our clients the men and women who support the running of our government – from our nearest Foggy Bottom neighbors at the State Department to the many other agencies and departments around town. But this same DC metro area we love so much, including Northern Virginia and Maryland, has felt the effects of the shutdown more acutely than most. As roughly 800,000 federal workers go unpaid, we find ourselves in a unique position to lend a hand.
Life won’t wait for the government to reopen
Because birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings won’t wait for the government to reopen, we’re stepping up to help. If you are one of the furloughed and otherwise unpaid federal workers, we understand how sad, angry, and frustrated you may feel. We also understand that, even though your paycheck has been held back, a lot of life is still happening. You may be getting married (and need a perfectly lustrous look for the blushing bride), you may be celebrating an anniversary or birthday (and need a delightful gift for a loved one), or you may have just welcomed a new baby into the world (and need to show your love for mom with a gift of pearls). No matter the moment, Spey is here!
For government workers on furlough, we’re offering special purchasing programs, delayed payments, discounts on our collection of exquisite ready-to-wear pearl jewelry and little luxuries, and continuing our tradition of free gift-wrapping and free shipping on all orders. Simply get in touch to discuss your pearl dreams with our team. We’ll work with you to select the perfect piece of jewelry or unique gift for the loved ones in your life – even if finances are a bit constrained at the moment. Everyone deserves the luster and fine craftsmanship of Spey pearls. We’re proud to do our small part to support the federal workforce in this way.
