Designer Spotlight: Steven Ruse

Jewelry is something eternal in a wardrobe. It doesn’t get ripped or torn, rarely does it get worn out. If it gets too big or too small, it is easily adjusted at a jewelry store. Among handbags and shoes, jewelry is something to splurge on during one’s life. If you think about it, you get the most for what you spend.

Rings have always been one of my fascinations; I’ve always have had the best of luck with them. I have tiny wrists so watches and bracelets always need to be resized, and let’s be honest, how often do I get around to taking them to a jewelers to get fix? Rarely to never. But rings are ideal for me because I have small, skinny fingers and usually the tiny sizes are what is left at stores.

Recently, I got an internship at a local art gallery in Pleasanton, California. During my orientation, I noticed this display on the counter of rings. Instantly, I was drawn to them. Yet these rings were nothing like I had ever seen before.

MT#4: Secrets of a Bargain Hunter

Love shopping at Ross and Marshalls? Here are some tips for the best steals and deals from!

The Treasure-Hunt:

Shopping off-price is a treasure hunt – try not to limit the experience by being too specific. Sometimes we get great deals on items that do not go to all stores. If you go looking for a specific item, you may not find it. Keep an open mind and your flexibility will pay off.

Shop Often:

The number one way to discover the best deals is to come often. Shipments arrive at our stores 3 to 6 times a week. At Ross there’s always something new.

Early Bird Catches the Deal:

Stores get busier as the day goes on so shop as close to opening time as possible to avoid “competition.”

Snatch It Up:

If you see something you like, buy it. More than likely, it won’t be there when you come back.

Buddy System:

Bring a friend. Another set of eyes increases your chance to spot a bargain.

Going, Going, Gone:

Shop clearance sections for even bigger savings. Price reductions are taken every week and are marked on the ticket. Look for the red and yellow clearance signs.


It’s actually easy to remove those seemingly permanent price tags off a picture frame, vase, etc. Rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, mineral spirits (a solvent available at hardware stores) or Goo Gone® easily do the trick.
