We, as one of few full-service jewelers, endeavor to meet all your jewelry needs, from simple in-stock purchases to sizing & appraising to building a ring from scratch, design to delivery. What makes us unique is the attention, care and detail we give to each client, no matter how major or how simple the project. Whether a new bride-to-be or a married couple interested in updating their rings, we know that each person is one of a kind and we are here to help each one express her own uniqueness, with kindness and respect. The best part is how much fun we have doing it! Here are three of our bridal-related services:

Custom Design

If it’s important to you that your jewelry expresses your unique style and creativity and that it is exactly what you envision, custom design may be for you!

Rachel recently had the pleasure of working with Jen and Nick on their engagement ring. This couple is lively and spontaneous. They wanted a one-of-a-kind ring and the fun of participating in its creation. The collaboration produced this beautiful piece, combining strong lines with a delicate lacy quality, with a beautiful oval center diamond surrounded by smaller full cut diamonds.

A Wedding Story – Kasey & Andrew

True love in the time of COVID-19

The Proposal

Kasey and Andrew met at a bar, Bodega, through a mutual friend. From that night on, their story has been nothing short of a fairytale. Their love carried them through eighteen happy months until one day, Andrew decided to propose. 

With the help of close friends Shawnee & Palmer, a surprise beach proposal was planned in Wilmington, NC. 

“The main idea was to tell Kasey we were all getting dinner disguised as celebrating Andrew’s first time meeting them. Before dinner, Shawnee, the wife of Palmer, told Kasey she needed to take some aerial beach shots for a client of hers.  From there we would head to dinner.  We arrived at the beach, and I walked Kasey away from Shawnee’s photo area. While leading Kasey away, she jokes, ‘What if you proposed to me right now?’ I replied, ‘What if I am?’ and got down on my knee and asked her to be my wife.”

Plans Meet With COVID19

They began planning their dream wedding, but little did they know, a big change was to hit the world in the coming months. As COVID-19 forced us all to social distance, their plans of a wedding with all of their family and friends soon had to be surrendered. They didn’t let that stop them from having a beautiful ceremony, though, as they gathered in their yard to exchange vows and toast to happiness!

Dating in the City: An Interview With Nicci Sprouse-Grosso

Too often in the jewelry business we speak about those that are in love and ready to make big commitments, like engagements and celebrating milestone anniversaries. However, many of our customers are independent women who are making self purchases,  and some of those women are in relationships, but many are not. Our customers are the CEO’s of businesses, volunteers of local organizations, moms showing their daughters what it is like to be a confident woman and so much more. The point is, our customers are mainly women in diverse situations all with a common bond of individual style.

So, this Valentine’s we thought it might be interesting to share a different spin on love. Just like our customers have different stories, so do their dating experiences. We have seen and heard enough love stories to know many things work in finding the right person and if your heart is ready, there is someone out there for everyone. And if you choose to not find that person that’s ok too. Love comes in many different forms including things we are passionate about. Just be you and be happy.

But for those looking for a new way of dating, we interviewed someone we thought had a really interesting story and professional background in connecting love matches.

Meet Nicci Sprouse-Grosso.

She has a great love story of her own, years of executive matchmaking experience and a new venture with her husband which is a social club for singles. (more…)
