Sparkling with an internal fire all its own, diamond is one of the world’s most sought-after and adored gemstones. Those born in April are lucky enough to call this scintillating gem their birthstone, a symbol of clarity and strength. Diamond is so strong, in fact, that its name comes from the Greek word "adamas," which means “invincible” or “unbreakable.” The timeless charm of diamond was cherished long before it became the April birthstone, and the places where diamond comes from are as fascinating as the lore that surrounds it.
We like to keep an eye on trending colors in the fashion world. After all, the jewelry business is in the fashion business. The colors that we wear for our clothing has an influence on the color gemstones and the color of the precious metals that we wear. I feel these colors lend themselves well to rose and white gold, not to yellow gold. In gemstones I feel that topaz, citrine, blue sapphire and perhaps turquoise will pair well with next year's clothing. And of course diamonds match well with everything!
Evans told Today's Gadi Schwartz that she was having an exciting, action packed dream about a cargo train and some villains. "It was very James Bond," she said. "And in my dream my fiancé told me that I needed to swallow my engagement ring in order to protect it, I guess." While still in a dream like state, Evans slid the diamond ring off her finger, put it in her mouth and swallowed it with a glass of water. When she awoke the next morning, the 29 year old Jenna noticed her ring was gone and she had a very good idea of where it could be. "I couldn't help but laugh at it, and then I had to wake my fiancé up and tell him that I had swallowed my engagement ring," the frequent sleepwalker told Schwartz.
★★★★★ My husband read the reviews online and said they have really good ratings and we should check them out. So we did. We were going with intentions of looking at wedding bands. The store was nicely laid out, sales men and women greeted you with genuine welcome rather than an aggressive salesman approach. Ian our salesman was very knowledgeable about the jewlery, but most importantly listened to what I was looking for. His patience did not go unnoticed and his weekly follow up phone calls to keep me notified of delays, problems, or status of the work was impeccable. I had some custom work on my engagement ring done so I could pick a wedding band I liked rather than custom make a wedding band to fit my engagement ring. The work and quality is amazing. I purchased my wedding bands from them and couldn't be more satisfied. Customer service and honesty is something they value and I would recommend anyone to check them out. ★★★★★ I know nothing about jewelry. I walked into Family & Co. with a very vague idea of what I wanted. Craig patiently walked me around the store and guided me to the perfect piece of jewelry. I will be returning to Family and Co. for my next purchase. Thank you! ★★★★★ Couldn’t be more happy with how smooth buying an engagement ring was for my fiancé’. Ian was so great and so helpful, I went back to him and got the matching wedding band as well! And my fiancé got my band from him as well! Their name says it all you will be treated like family!
