Who wants to hear a classic Buffalo love story? We thought you might :-). Joe is a Buffalo cop who met Jennifer, a Buffalo teacher, while they were mingling at a local bar. They’ve been a couple for about 6 years now, and during the March snowstorm Joe proposed to her in front of Niagara Falls. That’s 100% prime Buffalove right there, I say. Here’s how Operation Bended Knee went down:

Several years ago "Joennifer" met a couple from Philadelphia while on vacation. The Philly folks had been invited to visit the area, and naturally they wanted to see Niagara Falls. Jennifer didn't think that standing in the mist of Niagara Falls on a cold & windy day was the best sightseeing option available, but Joe and the visitors insisted. If you’re from this area, you know that chaperoning out-of-state friends and family to see the Falls (no matter the weather) is part of your civic duty, so Jennifer braved the cold like any good Buffalo gal would do. A chilly Jennifer warmed up quite a bit, however, when Joe presented this 1.2 ct. excellent cut diamond engagement ring (with another ¼ tcw of side stones), while their Philadelphia friends photographed the moment. Congratulations to a wonderful couple, we wish you many years of happiness & health!.

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. ...

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.
