Karen is a longtime customer and one of our favorite peeps in the entire world. She brought in her father’s diamond ring to be remade into a new ring for her son Earl, on the occasion of his 30th birthday. It’s a heartfelt and moving tribute to the permanence of family love, spanning three generations. The center stone is a gorgeous 1.4 ct. colorless diamond nestled in a 14K w. gold setting. The two infinity symbols framing the stone represent, in this design, the never ending love of a mother for her child. Grandpa’s diamond coupled with mom’s thoughtful and loving design; we’re certain it’s a birthday milestone marker that Earl will cherish for the rest of his life. ...

Will told us that he would be getting an engagement ring from us for his girlfriend Tori, and that he would like to help us write their love story for our FB page when the time came. We loved the idea of a DYI posting, and yesterday we received a beautiful note, outlining how they first met and how Will proposed. Here is their story in Will and Tori’s own words:

How We Met (by Will): “At a friend’s Christmas party, Tori’s beautiful eyes and gorgeous smile caught my attention from afar. I knew that I had to talk with her before the night was over. But as the night progressed my opportunities were dwindling away. I had to take immediate action before I went back home the next day, not knowing if or when I would have another chance".

"I saw a guy talking to Tori (who seemed to be uninterested in the conversation) so I swooped in and took the chance to free her from the clutches of the other guy. We started to converse, and we immediately got along & laughed a lot together. At the end of the evening we exchanged phone numbers and began to text each other. After what seemed like thousands of text messages and hours of phone calls, we had “The Night”, which consisted of talking from sun down to sun up about our lives; our favorite colors, our family tree, what we like to do in our free time, etc. It was then we started to grow the love we have for each other today”.

The Engagement (by Tori): “With a fog cloud looming over our hotel in Huntington Beach, our initial plans to soak up the rays and lounge by the pool were derailed. We decided to take advantage of the hotel amenities and rent two beach cruisers. Will's plan all along was to convince me to go for a secluded bike ride in the morning. He knows that I love going for bike rides, and we thought it would be sunnier down by the water, which it was”.

“After riding miles along the bike path next to the ocean, we parked the bikes and romantically strolled to the coast to see how warm the water was. The water was cold, but we can say we officially dipped our feet into the Pacific Ocean! After walking back to the bikes, Will said he looked forward to doing spontaneous activities like this with a family; building memories and sharing laughs. He then stated that it was time to start the family of our dreams, and get married. I saw him in the corner of my eye as he got down on one knee. I turned around and saw a black box with gold trim. I didn't know what was happening at first, until I realized he was proposing! He said "Victoria Ann with an "e", will you marry me”? Of course, I said yes”!

Barbara’s Editorial Comment – never doubt that where there’s a Will, there’s a way! Thank you to this wonderful couple for sharing their story & pictures, and for including us in this milestone in their life. We wish Will and Victoria Anne (with an "e') many years of health & happiness.

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.
