Robinique came in recently with a friend to look around and kick a few engagement ring tires, in anticipation of boyfriend Omar one day popping the question. It came sooner than she had even hoped. Within days Omar called us, having heard all about a 14k w. gold ring with 1 tcw. of side diamonds, bedecked with a 1.02 Emerald cut center stone. Apparently Robinique knows how to drop a very specific hint :-)

Omar lives in Chicago so we went back and forth by e-mail & phone to get the ring ready for a Friday evening proposal. He arrived Friday morning to pick it up there was just one small problem – he didn’t know where to take her that night to make the proposal. We're a full service jeweler, so we called Russell’s, and miraculously they had a 7:00 opening with seating in a private booth. Omar’s proposal went off without a hitch (well it ended with a hitch, but you know what we meant) and Robinque is over the moon with her newly adorned left hand.

The voice of the Buffalo Sabres, Dan Dunleavy, recently visited us to pick out an engagement ring, accompanied by the love of his life, Brenda. The ring was ready; now it was time to draw up a play that would catch Brenda by surprise. We recruited our friend Broderick, an usher at Shea’s Theatre, to make the assist. Let’s pick up the play by play during intermission at the Nutcracker on Saturday:

> Broderick goes into the corner – he’s digging for the gift bag from under the tree… Dunleavy’s moving into position on the right wing … he’s being closely watched by Brenda…
> Broderick carries the bag out.. he’s looking to pass it to Dunleavy… Dunleavy’s wide open!...
>Dunleavy has the ring… he whirls around and drops to one knee… he FIRES off a proposal!...

The experience of making, what some would say, the biggest purchase a lifetime was such a delight with Barbara and her associates. She makes it very comfortable and not scary during the whole process. She made sure that I knew what I was buying, and also educated in what I was buying. We were able to get the most perfect ring, and was/is willing to work with any budget. My now fiancé said it is the most perfect ring, and wouldn’t want anything else. Now it’s time to pick out wedding bands!!!!!

I AM TRULY SPEECHLESS!!!! Can’t say enough about Barbara and her staff!! She helped me upgrade my wife’s wedding ring diamond for our 20th Anniversary. Barbara really took the time to sit down and discuss options with me, not from a sales person’s point of view, but from a “family member” point of view. Extremely warm and personable, someone who really cares! Thanks again Barbara, I gave the ring to my wife today and she was in tears!! Truly a day to remember!!

The experience we had in Barbara Oliver’s, was second to none, from the minute we walked through the door. We sat in a relaxed and comfortable setting and discussed our plan for a bespoke design. It seemed so much more personal than just standing across a counter, like most large chain jewelers. Barbara explained in detail, the process which made it easier to select the perfect stone and design the rings we wanted. At this point we knew we were in excellent hands with the right gemologist.
