If you were a diamond, what shape would you be? What shape would your significant other be? We made this rose gold beauty for Josie, it is her family ring. Each stone represents someone she holds in her heart, she is the Marquise shape diamond watching over the family, the baguette is her hubby who keeps them all on the straight and narrow, her daughters-in-law are the Princess cuts and her sons the rounds. The little twinkles are for those little ones to come in the future. Congratulations Josie on your new ring and wonderful family! May you always enjoy them with much happiness. ...

Diamonds form at a high pressure deep in the earth’s mantle and it looked like Jeff’s proposal was forming the same way. He was about to begin his medical residency with long work hours, and wanted a ring to symbolize as Jeff puts it: “My unending love for the most beautiful, loving, caring, and overall amazing woman in my life.” Luckily we helped him find just the right one. Then it all came down to one proposal date (his beloved Samantha recently graduated with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and was a bit busy too): Saturday, July 29th, their first weekend day off together in weeks. But what happens? (This is real life remember.) Their plans for kayaking dissolve as Samantha is feeling a bit under the weather, their Plan B fails as they head for a picnic to Glen Falls only to find every square inch overtaken by the Annual Arts Festival and so Jeff (an extraordinary master of the pressure cooker) devises Plan C on the spot: They go to Clarence Town Park were they find just the right spot for a perfect proposal that ends with a big “Yes!” and starts a lifetime together. Congratulations! ...

Life’s events bring us together in such wonderful and unsuspecting ways. Mike met Katelyn a little over four years ago when he was working an event at a bar in Amherst. (Did either one of them ever think that was going to happen?!) After taking it slowly, they began dating “officially” a year later. It turns out Mike’s cousin is one of our favorite customers and his fiancé is the sister of another one of our fav’s! We were bursting with excitement knowing how happy they would be, but we kept on task and helped Mike select a triple excellent diamond. Then we zipped our lips (It’s a small world after all) and waited for Mike’s email with: “She said yes!” Mike proposed in Fort Lauderdale on a balcony overlooking the ocean on an absolutely gorgeous sunny day. Way to go! We are so happy now to be able to share this good news. Congratulations to a wonderful couple! ...

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.
