Barbara's Favorite Things

There's still time to submit YOUR entry in our "Favorite Things Contest" for a chance to win $1,000 in prizes. There's also a random draw for anyone who enters, so everyone has a chance to win regardless of how many "Likes" you get.

Here's my final piece of jewelry, and it's one that scores high on the sentimental value scale - Gramma Merle's butterfly brooch. It's vintage costume jewelry and quite heavy, and she wore it proudly on the lapel of her suits for as long as I can remember. It now resides in the drawer of her treadle sewing machine which I also have, nestled among the stretchy waist bands from my Grandpapa's underwear which Gramma, always one for thrift, thought might come in handy one day :-).

Barbara's Favorite Things Part III

This is one of my favorite pendants, a designer piece by Bulgari in white gold with diamonds and sapphires galore. It's a beautifully made piece, and coordinates with pretty much anything I decide to wear, which makes it my "go to piece" whenever I feel like adding a little color to my wardrobe.

We're extending the "My Favorite Things Contest" Until Friday, October 28th at 5:00 PM

Good afternoon, FB friends. I've been away from the shop for a few days due to the death of my mom. Needless to say, I've been a little preoccupied. We're going to extend our "Favorite Things" contest until this coming Friday, October 28th. For those of you that have already submitted your wonderful stories, this is an opportunity to garner more "Likes" for your submissions. If you wanted to join in the fun but thought it might be too late it's an opportunity to share YOUR favorite piece of jewelry with the Barbara Oliver Jewelry community. Good luck everyone, and thank you for all the love and support that has been extended over the past four days.

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.
