Creating Heirlooms

In every new piece, we are creating important family heirlooms for tomorrow. And, remember, there is always new life for old jewelry!

Care of Fine Jewelry

It is so important to have the jewelry you wear every day checked by your jeweler (me!) 3 to 4 times a year. A good habit that can help prevent stone loss!

Any fine automatic watch — Rolex is one — should be serviced every 3 to 4 years. This cleaning, oiling and adjusting process adds life to the movement parts.

Hand Versus Machine Engraving

Hand engraving is sometimes costly, but the timeliness and tradition of it is priceless.

Machine engraving is less expensive and often the best choice when multiple items need engraving.

Logo Jewelry

It’s important to consider your time frame when you want to create logo jewelry. As with all custom design, depending upon the design and metals used, it could take just 3 weeks or as long as 10 weeks to produce.

Gemstones or Pearls?

I’m often asked what gemstones or pearls to purchase on holiday. It’s important to deal with whomever your guide recommends. The price might not be the lowest, but your chances of returning home with a natural gemstone or genuine cultured pearl are much greater.

Please don’t save your pearls for special occasions only! Do remember to put them on after hair and makeup is done.

Consult Your Jeweler

First of all, it’s always best to choose and consult with your jeweler (me!), then let your jeweler (me!) bring you a selection of the best diamonds, gemstones or pearls tailored to your desires.

With guidance, you will be able to make the best choice (and investment) for you and your loved one.
