Hi Everyone!

     I just booked my yearly flight to Antwerp Belgium!  We are leaving Saturday October 6th.  This year is my 16th year going to Antwerp and fourteen of the fifteen years prior I have gone around the 19th give a day or two.  Why am I leaving two weeks earlier this time?  Well my wife is going to accompany me on her first trip.  She's recently retired and so excited to go!   I must say I'm a little woried, not about the trip but about the size of the diamonds she's going to want me to buy her! LOL. 

     We are traveling to Antwerp the Diamond Capital of the World where because I'm a member of the largest buying group in the industry I'm able to buy directly from the cutters.  When I make this trip I can presell you diamonds at what I normally pay for them here in the United States.  I can save you 26 - 45 percent off the showcase prices for engagement rings, diamond earrings, pendants, and bracelets.

     So start saving - some people save all year for my trip - and stop by to talk about what you woud like for me to get you.  I'd be honored to pick you the most beautiful diamond(s) I can find at the best possible price!

Joe

In 1940, billionaire banker David Rockefeller married Margaret "Peggy" McGrath, and during their 56-year marriage the couple collected magnificent works of art and fine jewelry. Yesterday, 19 jewelry items from their massive collection hit the auction block at Christie's, with most far outperforming pre-sale estimates. An aquamarine and diamond “Leaves and Flowers” bracelet was estimated to sell for $40,000 to $60,000. When the hammer went down, the bracelet had fetched $250,000 — more than four times the high estimate. More auction highlights at our blog... http://bonafinejewelers.thejewelerblog.com/
