A couple was holiday shopping at the mall, and the place was packed. As the wife walked through the mall, she was surprised to look up and see her husband was nowhere around. She was quite upset because they had a lot to do. Because she was so worried, she called him on her cell phone to ask him where he was. In a
calm voice, the husband said, "Honey, you remember the jewelry
store we went into about 5 years ago where you fell in love with
that diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you
that I would get it for you one day?" The wife choked up and
started to cry and said, "Yes, I remember that jewelry store."
He said, "Well, I'm in the bar right next to it."
So I don't have a bar next door to my jewelry store but I would still encourage you not to upset your significant other this way.
By the way, the opal ring posted in my last article is sold already. This time of year you have to be fast if you want to get some of my best pieces. The necklace pictured above is 22k gold with Lazare Diamonds in it. The center stone is a .75 ct. diamond. This piece is not for sale but I have a similar necklace in 18k gold without the diamonds available.
I've been making and selling jewelry for 40 years. For 20 years I was one of the partners of Spirer Somes Jewelers. In 2004 I opened my own store with my wife Kathy. I have a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America. Everything sold in my store I make myself.
