I highly recommend that you leave your rings off during this health crisis because they offer places where the virus can hide and impede washing your hands. If you must wear your rings, take them off before washing or sanitizing your hands. First clean the rings, then wash your hands before you put the rings back on.

Think about making your inherited diamonds more valuable ...recut them to improve clarity, cut and even color! By recutting this diamond from 1.25 ct to 1.08 ct. to eliminate the chips, the quality of the diamond improved and it increased by nearly 4 1/2 times in retail value! That's worth looking at!

Repair, repurpose or refurbish? When you've inherited a piece of jewelry that doesn't fit, that's the time to consider repurposing to better meet your style. I took 28 round diamonds from several pieces of a client's jewelry and redesigned them into this gorgeous pair of waterfall earrings. Fit for dressy denim or the Academy Awards!

Love in Diamonds: In just one month, we repurposed the diamonds from an older wedding set my client inherited from her mom. We sold the solitaire diamond and gold to fund the project and transformed the remaining diamonds into a beautiful modern ring that reflects her style. Here’s the before and after. And I handed her a check for the balance! A win-win!

Rich and Merrill attended the ISA Appraisal Conference this weekend in Louisville. We learned about the legal and ethical considerations for appraisals, U.S.made silver service and flatware, oriental rug identification, fine art identification and authentication, gold testing methods and best of all, appraising Bourbon!

We also enjoyed the 30th anniversary of Thunder over Louisville and took a trip to Churchill Downs where we met THE official Kentucky Derby bugler, Steve, who calls the horses to their posts!
