Surprisingly Mothers’ day is actually a great time to buy an engagement ring!  Although I’ve never seen diamonds go on sale…. Ever!… there are a couple times a year that the settings will go on sale.  

The time has come! Everything in my top 10 is at 25% off starting May 1st, as well as the engagement rings – Shop James Allen Engagement Rings Here

If you haven’t read “The Art of Buying Diamonds online Part 1 and 2”  have a look! These quick reads will give you a solid understanding of how to buy diamonds online and where to find them.

With that said, sometimes we need a little color. We may also have a weakness for Morganite, Tanzanite and Rubies…. And sometimes Emeralds with a dash of Velvet Blue and Pink Sapphires! haha! Shop for James Allen Colorful Gemstone Jewelry Here

I’m sure myself and Sam are not the only ones that have mothers out there that miss us terribly.  We miss them too!

Sam’s parents are only a 20min drive from Downtown Vancouver, so we are there for dinner every week like clockwork.  My parents are a bit more of a trek up the coast from the city by ferry. We make weekends out of it about once a month. Not right now of course!  We are homebound like so many of us.

I think it’s fair to say that it’s harder on the mothers than anyone right now.  They are either at home, not able to see their grown-up kids and grandkids, or they are at home having had to transform themselves into a full-time domestic goddess, mom and teacher, all while possibly trying to fit in a career. 

Growing up, I would always pick out an extremely cool piece of jewelry for my mom, sister and grandma every year.  I had an eye for it!

Even if I just had $50 to spend, I would somehow find something that looked like a million bucks.  Just writing this I’m realizing that every time I went to see my Grandma, she was always wearing a piece of jewelry I had bought for her. .

She would say “Jason, do you recognize my earrings?” ”Of course Grandma!”  and then we talk and talk about when she got them. She always remembers if it was Christmas 1999 or Mothers Day 2004.  That’s what jewelry does, it captures memories every time.

Now that me and Sam are all grown up and pushing 40, I think we can afford to step it up hard core this year, bring our Mothers’ Day “A” Game and spoil the women rotten!

Remember this!

Although we will sometimes hunt out the best deals,  we will never cheap out on quality.  It’s like having a very fun couple as your personal shoppers who just happen to know a lot about jewelry and watches, with very high standards.

We will never recommend poorly made jewelry. We want the best cut stones, ethical sourcing, the best quality and lifetime guarantees.  That’s what you can expect from us as a standard. 

It’s not a lie that diamonds have a special place in our hearts but like I mentioned we are also exotic gemstone experts and lovers.

We have travelled to the Tanzanite mine in Tanzania, shopped for Emeralds in Columbia and spent years working alongside some of the most talented and famous jewelry designers in the world in New York.  We have so many stories to share with lots of really valuable info, the latest designs, classic looks, rare diamonds, exotic stones, drop dead gorgeous looks and of course, if the girls get their bling, it’s all about the watch for the boys! 

Stay tuned and keep on shining bright!
