Yesterday was National Sponge Candy Day. It’s a holiday I think we can all get behind, especially here in Buffalo where the melt in your mouth orange confection was perfected, according to local lore. I grew up loving the stuff, as did our good friend Paula. She inherited this gorgeous 3 ct. pear shaped diamond from her mother, and we custom designed this split shank “right hand ring” around it. When she picked it up yesterday, she brought us a treat. Paula took home the eye candy & we got the sponge candy. Now that’s what I call a sweet deal. ...

Our good friend Tina never really loved her original engagement ring band because she felt it didn’t properly showcase her beautiful 1 carat emerald cut center stone. We plucked this band from our bridal stock, and now she’s ecstatic about the cleaner design that gives her diamond well deserved front (and center) billing. Now, what to do with the original band? After rummaging around in Barbara’s Big Box o’ Gems Tina decided on this blue sapphire, which is also her (September) birthstone. We popped it into her original band, where it looks very much at home, and Tina celebrates her birthday this month in a totally awesome way. ...

Four years ago Eric met Ilenia in front of the Ellicottville Brewing Company (EBC). Well, things progressed quite nicely, and they decided to get married. All that remained to "make it official" was for Eric to give her the darned ring. They went to Ellicottville for a day trip, and Eric dragged her around to various places, but still no ring. Illenia was fuming, but said nothing. As the day wound down Eric blandly announced he was famished and suggested they grab something to eat at EBC. At last, the stage was set. At the exact spot where they first met Eric got down on one knee and presented this 14 k. w. gold ring “rocking” a 1.55 ct. Asscher cut diamond. It was a special moment, made even better when both families, who had secretly assembled for the big occasion (while Eric bought time meandering around Ellicottville), popped out of hiding to join the happy couple in an engagement celebration. ...

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.
