Why Talking Is a Good Idea
Buying jewelry online is intimidating. We should know. We've been selling online for 17 years.
We've taken a totally different approach. A personal one.
Remember how experiences used to be intimate? Jewelry buying should be an intimate experience.
It isn't about having the largest selection, or selling the cheapest (i.e. low quality) jewelry. We’re not aiming to be the Amazon of jewelry. We are a family-owned jewelry store in Modesto (California) that is very picky about quality and design. That's been our calling card since 1989.
Beautiful jewelry should stir the soul. Before selecting a piece for display we ask, “How does this design make me feel?”
In a world of infinite choice, it’s nice to slow down and appreciate the work of master craftsmen.
Don’t use your credit card to buy this. Not yet.
It’s 5:40 AM in Modesto right now. Call us and see why we fell in love with this piece. One shouldn’t ever have to buy jewelry online without asking all your questions first. Oh, that’s right, that’s what makes us different from the thousands of online jewelry sites out there.
When you call you aren’t talking to an agent in a call center. Your talking to either Ron Yates, Ashton Yates-Woolley, Marissa Stewart, Mechelle Yates, or Justice Carillo at our Modesto store location.
Don't you just love the allure of antique cut diamonds? This .91ct Old European Cut, circa 1910-1930, is a beautiful diamond about 100 years old! Old Euros, as they are also called, are noted for their fire (color dispersion). They are easily recognized by their small table, open culet and noticeable facets.
This one has exceptional clarity - VS2. Even with a jewelers loupe, it is very difficult to see anything inside the stone. The color is K, which is at the higher color end of the color found in diamonds this size, from this era. It's interesting that Old Euros face-up "whiter" than round brilliants of the same color. Because of the way they are cut and faceted, their apparent color is typically 1 to 2 grades higher than their true color. The diamond faces up near colorless!
We recommend setting this diamond into either a vintage setting or a vintage-inspired setting to keep the "antique" vibe going.
