Meet the Fox’s
I met Gary, via Phone conversation last year around Thanksgiving! He came as a referral from his son in law that I had never met but had just finished an engagement ring for just one year earlier. He was very nice and already very confident in my ability to help him with the sweet and daunting task of gifting his wife her “dream ring”. What a pleasure it was, taking the very diamond Gary had worked so hard to put on Sandy’s finger, and working it into the ring that represented how far they had come together spiritually, financially, and even stylistically. I worked closely with Sandra via many emails and phone conversations to put together all the small pieces she knew she wanted and work them into what she had never seen! At the end of the process we all gained a beautiful gift. This blog is all about introducing you to a side of fine jewelry that you didn’t know: the intimate and personal representation, the beauty and elegance, and the joy of your personality pouring out of each and every thing you do.
From the client:
Gary and I met on the third day of freshman orientation week at Penn State. On the first two days, my roommate and I ate dinner in the dining hall (which we shared with the guys’ dorm across the street) with other girls from our dorm hall. When we got back to our room after the second night, my roommate threw her purse down on her bed and said, “We’re never going to meet any men this way.” So, on the third night, she set out to find us some men. I followed her through the dining hall, food tray in hand. She spotted Gary and his roommate at a table and whispered, “There are a couple of prospects.” We sat down to eat with them and then went to an outdoor concert together. Gary asked me out the following night. We dated through our four years of college and got engaged at Christmas of our senior year. Gary saved the money from his summer jobs to buy me a beautiful solitaire engagement ring. We were married during the summer after graduation and started our married life in West Virginia. The next thirty-three years brought us three wonderful children, two fantastic sons-in-law, and two precious granddaughters. Gary decided that he’d like to get me a nicer ring, but I did not want to give up my original diamond, so we turned to Lindsay with Giador Fine Jewelry, who had made our daughter’s beautiful engagement ring. Lindsay’s a great listener, and she designed a lovely three-stone ring, using my original stone. The ring is perfect, not too flashy, yet beautiful from every angle. Gary had given me an anniversary band one year, and it did not match my new ring, so we called Lindsay again. She used the diamonds from the anniversary band to make Gary a great new wedding band. To me, the rings represent the success of our lives together to this point, and the promise of a bright future with the love of my life and best friend.
