One of the most exciting aspects of jewelry is passing it from generation to generation. At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler one of our specialties is restoring and reinventing heirloom quality jewelry.
Diamonds are unusual in their brilliance and hardness that holds a polish unlike any other stone. They add sparkle to any design and since they are neutral in color they are the perfect feature in an everyday piece of jewelry. In one well cut stone you can see all the colors of the rainbow or just pure white brilliance.
One of the sweetest engagements is one that includes a family diamond as an accent or featured in a new design. We just completed a custom ring design by incorporating diamonds from both parents and both grandparents into her ring. Those diamonds were given to each of those individuals on a special day in their lives and now they are combined to celebrate again. A diamond once given may go through style changes. Since design is our specialty we see many family stones used in new ways to celebrate new milestones.
You have the opportunity to create a new family heirloom when you give her a diamond. In a disposable society where items are made to wear out or become obsolete next season, a diamond will endure through all of life’s celebrations.
