Adjusting to a temporary ‘new’ normal

The world has turned upside down and not sure when things will return to normal. We hope and pray that everyone stays healthy and safe during this difficult time. We are open today until 6pm to help anyone that may need our assistance or pick up jewelry/watches that we have repaired. We are offering curbside service and just need to call us (303) 834-8981 to let us know you’re outside. Tomorrow it looks as we will have to close temporarily to comply with Boulder County health regulations until April 17. Our thoughts are with you and look forward to seeing you in a few weeks. If you need to get in touch with us during the down time, please text us at (970) 440-7566.

Now accepting Estate Consignment jewelry for our Vintage showcase

We are happy to announce the launch of our new showcase of Vintage and Estate Consignment items for sale.

Swing by often as the showcase will be constantly changing.

Our Estate showcase contains a collection of hand selected fine jewelry that we have acquired from estates and also brought to us by local clients and sold through us on consignment. Usually you can find great deals here with most items marked 30-40% off retail appraised value.

If you are interested in selling a piece of jewelry, bring it in and let us evaluate it and if it has potential for our estate case, and we can explain our consignment process.

If for some reason it is not a fit for consignment, we are always willing to buy it for its weight in gold and we also purchase any diamonds that are ¼ ct or larger for the wholesale market.

Please see our gold and diamond buying page for more details.

Here are some items featured this month:

18K Tacori Diamond wedding set , Classic Crescent Engagement ring with 1.20 GIA certified Princess center diamond and matching eternity band– Gorgeous! Perfect for a Valentine proposal! Excellent condition in original box. Rings can be purchased together or separately.

Vintage Diamond ring – Beautiful stone and setting; VS2 Marquise Diamond with hand engraving – one of a kind and rare find. MUST SEE in person!

When your anniversary gemstone is also your birthstone

We just celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary, and although it’s an odd number there is actually a corresponding gem to commemorate the 16th year…peridot.

I got excited because this is also my birthstone (August). It must mean something special when the two coincide, just like your golden birthday when someone turns the age of their birth day (e.g., someone

born on the 25th of the month turns 25).  Peridot is a symbol of undying love and devotion. It’s also a beautiful shade of green.

A happy marriage is one of the most beautiful treasures in life. As the years pass, you can celebrate your union with gifts that outlast the passing of time. And jewelry set with the perfect wedding anniversary gemstone is the perfect choice for these special occasions!

For your reference, below is a list of gems for wedding anniversaries.

It’s National Proposal Day! Tell us your story…

Yes, March 20th is actually National Proposal Day. Who knew?

Some get excited that there is actually an official day to pop the question, but also this day is one that puts fear into some guys.

National Proposal Day is observed on both the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes, and is an opportunity to let the loved one in your life know you are open to a marriage proposal. But when subtle hints have not worked, a more direct approach may be required.

My husband proposed to me only after 5 months of dating! It was romantic and unexpected during a friends wedding at the Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa.

Use the hashtag #NationalProposalDay to post your story on social media.

Burmese Rubies fit for a Queen

I just finished watching Season 2 of “The Crown” and absolutely loved it!

It’s made me think of Queen Elizabeth II, her life, and her famous Burmese Ruby Tiara — one of the most symbolic and personal pieces created for Her Royal Highness.

The 96 rubies mounted in the tiara were originally given to the Queen as a wedding gift from the people of Burma.  According to traditional Burmese beliefs, rubies are meant to protect their owner from evil and illness, and there are 96 diseases that can affect humans.

It includes formations of diamonds and rubies set in beautiful rose motifs inspired by the symbol of Britain, the Tudor Rose.

Gift idea #7 . . . a “push” present for that special mom-to-be

Do you know someone who is expecting soon, or has recently given birth?

Consider a Push Present.

The popularity of the push present has soared recently. So what exactly is it?

Wikipedia defines “push present” as a gift a partner gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child. In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room.

A recent survey of over 30,000 respondents by BabyCenter found that 38% of new mothers received a push present, and 55% of pregnant mothers wanted one, though fewer thought it was actually expected. About 40% of both groups said the baby itself was already a present and did not wish an additional reward.

It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the new mom.

Some ideas for push gifts include jewelry with the gemstone of the month the baby is due, a gold, silver or platinum disk with names, initials or birthstone. A delicate diamond pendant, pearl necklace or earrings.

The trend has generated a backlash, as some couples dislike the implicit materialism of push presents, and would prefer increased help in chores or baby care, or save the money for the child’s education. Anyway you decide to help the new mom, she deserves some extra love and attention.


According to etiquette expert Pamela Holland, there are no set guidelines for push presents. “The standard is that there is no standard,” she said. “It does make sense to have etiquette around wedding or baby shower gifts because you’re inviting other people into it. But this is far too intimate to have a rule.” In general it is the woman who lets her man know about push presents, not the other way around, although there can be peer pressure from friends to buy one on either the man or the woman.

Diamonds were the most popular gift in the form of an eternity ring, but also tablet computers, charm bracelets and designer watches and handbags were also popular gifts to celebrate a new arrival.
