What’s the Buzz this Summer at Argo? The “B” Collection by Gumuchian

It’s arrived and just in time for the summer! Love at first sight, we fell head over heels for this exquisitely crafted bee inspired line by the high-end designer, Gumuchian. And of course, we couldn’t resist when we found that a portion of the sale goes back to the bees!

Being in the industry for years, we know fine jewelry when we see it. Gumuchian is just that. Their name has earned a well-established reputation in the diamond and jewelry industry due to their superior craftsmanship and spectacular design. Just holding a Gumuchian piece is a delight, you immediately notice the high quality the moment you interact with the jewelry.

This bee-inspired collection is available in 18 karat yellow, white and rose gold as well as platinum. Many of the shapes are hexagonal to reflect the bee’s hive. The way the diamonds contrast with the beautiful metals and the negative hex space is just striking! Below is just a sample of the rich and bold designs of the “B” collection. View the whole Gumuchian collection here.

Argo Approved: Oakland Interiorscapes

Oakland Nurseries, so much more than a horticulture nursery, offering wedding and event decor.

Oakland Nurseries; a family owned business that has been around for almost 80 years, has always been my “go to” plant store with one of the widest selections of plants. On the rare occasion that I’m unable to find what I’m looking for, they’ve always been more than willing to order it. I love the neighborhood feel and the customer service has always exceeded my expectations. I even had a sales associate reach out to me asking how I was enjoying the fountain I purchased. In my experience, this just doesn’t happen at every nursery.

I was aware that Oakland had services such as landscaping experts for commercial and residential spaces but didn’t realize that they have an Interiorscapes division that is dedicated to special events and custom décor. The Oakland Interiorscapes offers a wide selection of plant material for rent as well as many other green elements to make your wedding unique and magical. I can attest to their gorgeous designs, as I recently saw their work at the Garden Party Event at the Columbus Museum of Art. (more…)

2019 has been ringing in new and unique trends for the year!  From unusual diamond cuts to mixed metals, you’re sure to make a statement with these pops of colors and Boho styles! 

Fancy Diamond Cuts

Engagement rings with fancy diamond cuts have been trending with celebrities and social media.  Popular diamonds that we have been seeing are Pears, Trillions, and Marquise. These diamonds make for a unique, one of a kind ring that stands out from all of your friends’ and family’s rings!

Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-Grown diamonds have been on the rise, and more people are beginning to jump on their lower prices.  Lab-grown diamonds are ethical, eco-conscious and do not require any mining. Everything about these lab-grown diamonds is real, the only difference is that they are grown in a lab, not mined.  No one can tell the difference, because YES they are real diamonds! Have you always wanted that Two Carat diamond, but figured you could never afford it, ask about Lab Grown, you will be pleasantly surprised about what you can get for your money.

The Family Business – a wife’s perspective, by Glenda Argo

“From Berkshire Hathaway and Wal-Mart to small stores everywhere, about 90% of all U.S. businesses are family-owned or controlled by a family. Family businesses generate over 50% of the US Gross National Product (GNP).”  – Forbes.com

“Our business is about people, not status or bling per se, but marking moments and milestones in relationships with beautiful, well-made works of art. Whatever the importance of the event or size of the gift, the icon and presentation must be special and unique.” – Robert Argo, owner

My first introduction to the Argo family was when Robert, now my husband of 40 years, took me home to present to his parents as his bride-to-be. I was terrified! I had heard so much about this prominent, illustrious family. The family business, Argo & Lehne Jewelers, was an incomparable icon in Columbus, Ohio. I grew up on a farm in Iowa, far removed geographically and culturally from this world. Or so I thought.

Art at Argo’s – Viewing the Village: the art & artists of German Village

This poem was written in June of 1967, describing the essence of the village then and still today.

This small neighborhood, just south of downtown is a destination for many Columbus residents. There are quaint homes, brick streets and just something about the flickering gas lighting an art lover can’t resist.  Some have nestled into the neighborhood calling it home with their studios, while others simply enjoy painting the picturesque views of the streets & parks.
