We believe in giving you back your money when somethings not right and we can't fix it.
We believe in asking for forgiveness when we screw up.
We believe in unexpected gifts at unexpected times.
We believe every woman deserves a beautiful diamond.
We believe in conducting ourselves honestly in all things.
We believe quality should be affordable.

"I'm old enough to know better, but young enough to still do it anyways!"
Tell us a little about what you do? Being a small store, we all wear a lot of hats. I’m constantly working on our website trying to improve our customers shopping experience. I am a coin expert which is actually how I started in this business. I also love designing custom jewelry, lately featuring ancient Roman coins set into hand carved engraved settings. Throughout the years, what I have consistently loved most is getting to visit our clients and swap about life stories.
What do you like to do in your free time? When I’m not in my office you can find me out riding my horses, planting flowers, or listening to live music at a honky tonk.

Tell us a little about what you do? I am a Graduate Gemologist (GIA) and member of National Association of Jewelry Appraisers.

My greatest passion though is finding our antique & vintage pieces.
What do you like to do in your free time? I love riding trails with my horse Sahara and hiking in the great outdoors.
