Policies, please visit our primary About
page on the main Mrs. Gottrocks Ballerina Cowgirl Fine Jewelry website.
Mrs. Gottrocks was a custom jewelry design and jewelry repair
service in Manassas, Virginia, which is now changing its name to
Ballerina Cowgirl Jewelry to match our own design line of jewelry
currently in production design. It was established by Sheryl Suko,
a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) graduate with a GJG degree
(Graduate Jeweler Gemologist), the highest degree awarded to jewelers.
Ethical conduct and reasonable pricing was and is the cornerstone
of Mrs. Gottrocks customer services, including our internet websites.
The domain names gottrocks.com, gottrocks.net and mrsgottrocks.com
were briefly sold as Ms. Suko retired from active sales to begin
designing her own line of jewelry, but have recently been bought
back by Ms. Suko in order that she might return the informational
pages to the web (and add to them for fun), and return the 40,000
item Jewelry Catalog, which is made available to jewelers through
a leading American jewelry manufacturer with a stellar reputation
for ethical business practices and customer service - AND those
discount prices we have all come to LOVE.
Ms. Suko is currently being featured
in a Jewelers of America Careers in Jewelry brochure as an example
of someone making a midlife career change into the jewelry field.
She was quite honored to be selected, and although she has retired
from shop sales, still encourages the public to investigate the
jewelry industry as a potential career choice.
Mrs. Gottrocks Fine Jewelry and Gifts was initally
created as a personal buying service, bringing together the full
service aspects of a jewelry store with the personalized attention
of a Jeweler Gemologist usually reserved for only the wealthiest
of customers. The vision of Ms. Suko was to create the persona of
"Mrs. Gottrocks" as someone who would make our customers
feel like they have a relative in the business, who would always
give them a fair deal and honest information - and often the kind
of information which would save them money in the long run and provide
heirloom quality jewelry. Previously located in Old Town Manassas,
Virginia, where we performed jewelry repair and sales, due to illness
Mrs. Gottrocks is currently operating only on the Internet for jewelry
sales through our affiliation with Jewelers Services, and our affiliations
with Grower Flowers and MakesParties, among others. We encourage
you to make your purchaes through these affiliations to help keep
this informational site on the web. We have investigated and posted
their policies to ensure you will receive only the best money-back
guarantees and only the finest products and customer service.
The spirit of the Ballerina
Cowboy is in each and every woman - the beauty and the strength
each one projects and inspires in the world around her. The freedom
to be what you are, and what life deems you to be - a glorious blend
of the expected and the unexpected. Ms. Suko is currently designing
this line of jewelry to iinspire the Ballerina Cowgirl in you or
the woman in your life - from child to mother to mentor to friend.
But where did the name come from?
When Ms. Suko began to design a personal line
of jewelry, she looked for a name which would express her tendancy
to mix media and express her creativity in additional artistic hobbies.
She was reminded of a children's song she wrote by a family member.
The song was based on a conversation between two little girls playing
dolls. One child, to be greedy, announced that HER doll was going
to be BOTH the Ballerina and the Cowgirl, and the other child, without
skipping a beat, countered that HERS would then be a Rock Star Astronaut.
The copyrighted song was called Ballerina Cowgirl, and the chorus
"I'm a Ballerina Cowgirl, Rock Star Astronaut,
Life is very simple when you know what you're not,
Just a Ballerina Cowgirl, Astronaut Rock Star
Life is very simple when you know what you are." ©
It seemed the perfect name for jewelry created by someone
with such diverse creative endeavors, so Ballerina Cowgirl it became.
We were in development of a small Ballerina Cowgirl website when
the opportunity to re-purchase the gottrocks domain names was presented,
so instead we've blended the two to save duplication of effort.
Once the line of jewelry is actually produced, we will open the
Ballerina Cowgirl website for sales to the public.
