What a Diamond Ring Means

Fellas, do you know what it really means when you put a diamond on your woman’s finger? Yes, there is a meaning and symbolism behind the engagement ring!  It means you’re telling her you’re going to be her rock.

So apparently the things we post get around! So one day I get a PM from Christian, from Texas, that his wife liked a particular ring we did and could I make something special for his wife Amber? Well heck yeah we could! So far away, sure we can do emails, text, etc and work that way.....or as serendipitous as life can be, they were visiting relatives in Syracuse over the holidays and could they stop in Buffalo to meet with us? Amber had a three stone engagement ring and wedding band that she wanted a different look after the years, to celebrate the two of them and their exciting life as a family. They are moving to Australia for a bit, talk about whirlwind changes! These before and after photos were sent to me by Amber with a series of <3 emojis that the package arrived and the ring was everything she hoped for. Nice when you customers do the work for you, also nice when we make our folks happy! Thank you Amber and Christian taking the chance and, this little jeweler is just proud as punch! ...

Yes, I've missed you too! After a week of the flu, while looking at all the dreary weather it occurred to me a bit of sunshine, color and perhaps a flower or too would help perk us all up. So here you go, a little bit of the last two, plucked from our showcase (can't create the sunshine, alas). All Sapphires, all the time with diamond friends of course. I'm waiting for "the coast is clear" message from those ready to pop the question on all the engagement rings we have been working on, so I can share the stories and the photos with you all. Hope this brightens your day <3 ... See MoreSee Less

To signify her never-ending love for her daughter, Sophia asked to create as ring as a daily reminder for Angela to keep on her finger always. We had to come up with a design that was glove-friendly as Angela is a medical professional. We used the marquise stones from a band, the rounds from an orphaned stud earring, a solitaire pendant, all pieces that Sophia has treasured for so many years. Was she a happy daughter on Christmas morning? Just look at that beaming smile on her face. We always talk about how jewelry tells a story, we love sharing them with you and would love to hear yours too! ... See MoreSee Less

Picking out the Perfect Diamond

Hi, I'm Barbara Oliver and I'm here with you to teach you how to pick out the perfect diamond.

What’s My Favorite Color?

My favorite color? Sparkly!


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.
