  • The Changing Colors of Fall: October's Birthstone(s)


    Opals
    Appropriately enough for a month that usually represents the changing colors of the autumn season, October has two birthstones: opal and tourmaline — both of which can come in several shades of colors.

    Opals are formed within the cavities and cracks in near-surface volcanic rocks and vary in colors from translucent pearly white to black, with intermingling colors such as green, yellow, red and blue.

    Australia is famous for its black opals that have veins of green, blue and red running through them. But opals are also mined in Mexico, the U.S., South America, Japan and Ireland.

    Ancient Romans said opals were a symbol of love, hope and good luck. Arabian tales said the stone made a wearer invisible or was a talisman of thieves and spies. More infamously, medieval Europeans thought the stone affected victims of Black Plague.

    The alternate October birthstone is tourmaline, which is named from the Singalese word “tourmali,” meaning “mixed stones.” Tourmaline exhibits a broad spectrum of colors, such as yellow, green, red, blue, pink, brown and black. The American Gem Society says one prized variety known as “watermelon” features green, white and pink bands.
    Watermelon Tourmaline
    Compared to other stones, tourmaline is a relatively recent discovery and doesn’t have a large number of folk tales that accompany other gems. But some cultures know tourmaline as the “peace stone,” which is thought to dispel fear and keep the wearer calm.

    Tourmaline is mined in Brazil, the U.S., Afghanistan, and across Africa. But as always, you don’t need to travel far to find quality tourmaline or opal stones: Visit your local Cash America store (or the National Jewelry Liquidation Center in Las Vegas to find opals and tourmaline stones of all shades, in both popular and traditional settings!

  • Engagement 101

    engagement ringsClass is in session! We’ve all seen the four Cs of the diamond standards equation — that’s color, clarity, cut, and carat weight, for those who haven’t yet shopped for engagement rings — but your focus should really be on the simple math: there are four Cs but no better deals than the huge assortment of rings that Cash America offers.

    And that’s before you consider our easy layaway program, Free 30-day Satisfaction Pledge, and knowledgeable professionals who can assist you in finding the perfect ring. 

    The days of spending three months’ salary have gone the way of the slide rule. The modern formula is finding a ring she’ll treasure without going into debt that requires a calculator.

    Engagement 101 at Cash AmericaFollow our rules of engagement (rings) to ensure truly blissful beginnings! What to know:

    For her, it’s all about the geometry; before you set foot in the ring section, find out what cut your girl prefers. Study her jewelry box or have her best friend swear an oath of secrecy.

    For the setting, get creative: check out her wardrobe — is she into vintage, tailored or modern? Perhaps she loves a little drama? Some diamonds are raised to show off the sparkle, while larger surface stones (better for those concerned with size) may warrant an inlaid setting. If your intended uses her hands at work, consider a flat mount to reduce the incidence of dings.

    Engagement ringsAs for the metal, platinum offers the benefit of being hypoallergenic and extremely durable; gold gives you more options for color and finish, not to mention a more flexible price tag.

  • Computerworld Tabs Enova as One of 2014's “Best in IT”

    Enova named to Computerworld's Best Places to Work in IT for 2014

    By: Kaitlin Arntz, Enova Public Affairs

    With their annual list of the “Best Places to Work in IT,” Computerworld has once again identified Enova as an enticing spot for IT professionals to land. The list of 100 companies takes into account a number of factors, including key benefits, training and career development. Enova ended up at number 21 on the comprehensive list and ranked eighth in the category of career development.

    “It’s great to be recognized for the second year in a row as one of the best places to work in IT,” said David Fisher, Enova’s CEO. “One of our core corporate values is Top Talent and Teamwork, and we’re proud to have Computerworld recognize our commitment to building a great culture and environment for our employees.”

    While Enova’s growth has been significant in recent years, the company has worked to maintain the atmosphere of a smaller business. For employees, this translates to extensive opportunities for upward mobility, including a number of services dedicated to personal and professional growth.

    “Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees.”

    Enova is a company that prioritizes the success of its team members and recognizes the importance of giving employees all the tools they need to achieve it. With the recognition of industry analysts like Computerworld, alongside the measurable successes Enova has seen in its recent history, it looks as though the Enova approach is paying off.

  • Turn It Loose

    Cash America SuperPawn enters the Phoenix music scene with its first SuperPawn Music Center (SPMC)

    Diverse offerings at the SPMCThe SuperPawn at 4420 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix has long shared a shopping center storefront with a music store, but when the proprietor decided to sell his business, SuperPawn management had an inspired idea: Why not expand its retail offering to specialize in the music scene?

    Store manager Scott Lende then hired a team of pawnbrokers with musical backgrounds and knowledge, all of whom play instruments. For musicians looking to not only get a good deal but also get expert service, SPMC employees can talk the talk and shop the shop.

    SPMC speakers, amps, and musical equipmunk High-end instruments and equipment already appear to be a growing specialty of the SPMC, but shoppers can find a wide variety of instruments and equipment suitable for anyone, from beginners to experts.

    Offerings range from guitars to violas, bagpipes to mixing boards, and drumsticks to unique memorabilia.

    With workshops and talent showcases on the agenda for the future, the SPMC hopes to become as closely involved with the community as SuperPawn already is.

    Guitar wall at the SPMCAs part of this commitment, the SPMC has its own Facebook and managed Yelp pages. New and featured items will be posted throughout the week.

    If you’re in Phoenix, check out our featured items on Facebook, get a great deal at 4420 N. Central Ave., and then tell your friends and family about it by giving us a five-star review on Yelp!

    And stay tuned: The SPMC in Phoenix is only the first of more Cash America music centers to come. In the future we’ll be opening SPMC Tucson and the Cash America Music Store in Austin.

  • We’re Serious: April is the Month for Diamonds

    April is the month of traditional holidays like Easter; well-known modern inventions like April Fools’ Day; and recent, dubious holidays like Tell a Lie Day (April 4) and Ex-Spouse Day (April 14), according to Holiday Insights.



    But for those with a special April holiday of their own — a birthday — it’s also the month for diamonds, April’s birthstone.

    Did you know:
    • Diamonds are one of the hardest substances on Earth — it comes from the Greek word adámas, which means "unbreakable"
    • Diamonds are available in almost any color in the rainbow — typically yellow, brown, gray or colorless, and less often translucent white, pink, orange, purple, red, green, blue, violet, and black.
    • Diamonds were formed billions of years ago through a combination of high pressure and heat deep approximately 100 miles deep within the Earth’s mantle. They are brought to Earth’s surface through volcanic activity.
    It’s no wonder why people like to give diamonds to their loved ones: in addition to being a valuable investment, diamonds are symbolic of love and legends say a diamond brings its bearer a better relationship. Other fables report the stones ability to increase good balance, clarity and abundance.

    Today people traditionally give diamonds in engagement rings, and there’s no better place to find great deals on diamonds than a Cash America store. Visit your local Cash America, SuperPawn or Cashland, or the National Jewelry Liquidation Center in Las Vegas, for an April deal that’s no joke!

  • Greet Spring with the Beautiful Aquamarine

    March comes “in like a lion and out like a lamb,” two attitudes represented by its two birthstones: bloodstone’s bright red and dark green, and the cool and calming aquamarine.
     
    aquamarineThe clear blue-green aquamarine gets its name from the Latin word aqua, meaning “water,” and marina, meaning “sea.” It’s appropriate that this gem is March’s birthstone, as most of the month falls under the astrological sign “Pisces,” which is symbolized by a fish.
     
    In ancient Greek and Roman cultures, the stones were said to bring good fortune to sailors. In old lore, the stones were said to be the treasure of the mermaids and was endowed with many positive properties: aquamarine is fabled to revive the love of married couples, treat lung and eye disorders, and relieve anxiety, fear and restlessness.
     
    Today, the pretty stone is the perfect complement to spring fashions. The blue-green color varies in intensity, with the brightest tones existing in larger stones. The stones are found mostly in Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan and Mozambique.
     
    March’s alternate birthstone is Bloodstone, a dark-green stone flecked with bright red spots of iron oxide.
     
    bloodstoneAncient Babylonian myths tell tales of the stones having healing powers, and it was used to make amulets and seals.  It was also said to heal blood disorders and that simply touching the stones would stop bleeding.
     
    Also called the “martyr’s stone,” some stories say that the stone was created when drops of Christ’s blood landed on some jasper at the foot of the cross.
     
    Today the rocks are embedded in riverbeds as pebbles and are found mainly in India, Brazil and Australia.
     
    But you don’t need to go to Africa or South America to get Aquamarine or Bloodstone: Visit your local Cash America shop or the National Jewelry Liquidation Center in Las Vegas to find the best deals on the best jewelry. Get a beautiful March birthstone piece for a special person in your life today!
