Timeless at Adler’s
On the heels of one gift-giving season, Adler’s is preparing for another. February called for the locally owned jewelry store to stock up on engraved items and silver fashion jewelry for Valentine’s day, and now March signals time for Easter, First Communions, graduations, Mother’s Day and other spring occasions. The influx of spring merchandise includes Easter and religious gifts. Decorative crystal crosses and Adler’s Rosary cuff bracelet, that dates back to the 1940s, are among the most popular items. Suggested selections for Mother’s Day include Waterford crystal vases to complement a spring bouquet or Adler’s 100-pearl necklace for $100 along with matching pearl stud earrings. Boasting the status as a “New Orleans Tradition Since 1898,” Adler’s has secured a place in local’s homes and jewelry boxes. Although the business has evolved over time, co-owner Tiffany Adler says that Adler’s is committed to keeping its products “classic and timeless” while incorporating trends and excellent customer service. “We try to accommodate the customer’s needs and desires based on fashion, but also try to provide long-term value while keeping within the class jewelry and gift-giving parameters,” she says. “It’s all about value, service and style.” She also adds that Adler’s has a comprehensive Web site, available for bridal and gift purchases.

Rohm Gallery: Viewing and dining
With contemporary art by regional and national artists, Rohm Gallery is stocked with abstract art pieces that range in size. Lindsey Rohm, who owns the gallery, studied art history in college and felt that “opening an art gallery seemed to be the logical combination of skills and interests.”
Each month, Rohm selects a featured artist. This month, works by Mira Lehr will be shown, while in April, Rohm will display works by Katharina Chapuis.
Situated Uptown, the gallery is a personable experience; Rohm makes sure to develop friendships with her clients. For local clients who are interested in a purchase, Rohm offers to hand-deliver and hang the pieces in the clients’ houses.
Additionally, Rohm offers a light supper at her gallery openings, which are held on the first Saturday of each month. Gallery-goers can dine on jambalaya, macaroni and cheese, red beans and rice, and sip on beer or wine as they peruse the art.
