Knockout Picks for Gifts for Under $200

Tiffany & Co. BoxThe countdown is on for Christmas and I have some knockout picks for gifts for under $200 that are perfect stocking stuffers, or just little something’s to fill the gaps under the tree this year.

It’s a win-win!!

Over at the Jonathan’s Fine Jeweler’s blog, we published a Gemstone Gift Giving Guide, which I encourage you to all go and print out, but let’s just talk about the emerald.  The emerald is the birthstone for May, the Zodiac stone for Virgo and the traditional wedding anniversary stone for the 20th and the 55th anniversaries.  [Read more...]

Warning! Don’t Clean Your Jewelry!

Antique PinThis is a busy time of year as a diamond and gold buyer. With the price of gold and diamonds still climbing, it seems that everyone wants to cash in, especially now that it is the holiday season.  After all, it’s easy money to turn your old gold or diamonds into cash so you can then have the funds you need to buy those gifts that make your loved ones so happy during the holidays.

It’s a great idea to sell your gold right now, especially if it is broken or you just aren’t wearing it anymore. But, before you pull out the jewelry cleaner – STOP! [Read more...]
