In April It's Raining Diamonds

Diamonds are April's birthstone.

Diamonds make a wonderful gift as they are the hardest material on earth: 58 times harder than anything else in nature. For this reason, a diamond should last a lifetime. Diamonds are also used to celebrate the 60th and 75th wedding anniversary. 

Movies have been named after them, "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend"; songs titled after them, "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and there is even a diamond plant, Pandanus candelabrum, that prefers to grown near kimberlite pipes. Kimberlite pipes are columns of volcanic rock that extend deep into the earth and are the source of most diamonds found today.  

Diamonds can of course be set in so many different ways. They can be used in large clusters, single solitaires or grouped together in a three stone ring. Diamonds are used in many different styles of pendants, rings, earrings and bracelets. Diamonds come in every quality and price range. Using the 4Cs developed by the Gemological Institute of America  - cut, color, clarity and carat weight, you can find the diamond that fits your taste and budget. 

We carry an magnificent inventory of diamond jewelry, modern and vintage. We have been lucky to buy some beautiful estates and have accumulated a delightful selection of heirloom diamond jewelry. We are also creating unusual designs in our on premise jewelry studio. If you have diamonds from the past, we love to combine them to make a new piece of custom jewelry for the future. It is fun to be able to wear a piece of jewelry with diamonds from past generations. Here is an example of some of the vintage diamond jewelry we have in stock. 

We have a wonderful selection of modern diamond jewelry perfect for an April birthday or wedding anniversary. 

Creating custom jewelry is of our specialties. In our state of the art jewelry shop using the talents of a Master Jeweler, we can create beautiful one of a kind diamond jewelry. We like to craft jewelry that creates a jewelry moment. A moment like this is one that is talked about for years to come. Pieces of jewelry created in this fashion will be around to give to your children and grandchildren in the future. We specialized in taking your dreams and turning them into reality. The process usually starts with listening to your ideas, transforming them into a thumbnail sketch and then making a model for you to approve. The model is then cast in the appropriate metal, diamonds are set and before you know it you have a beautiful one of a kind piece of jewelry. We would be proud to work with you on a custom project that would give you years of enjoyment.  

We still like to suggest buying the simplest form of diamond setting - the solitaire. Whether it be a solitaire ring, pendant or earrings, this style of setting sets the diamond off to it's simplistic elegance. A solitaire setting lets the diamond stay the center of attention and allows everyone to see its true beauty maximized.
