I turned 18, my mother took me to the jewelry store to buy a diamond,
white gold cross necklace. After picking it out and purchasing it, I
put it around my neck. I have worn it everyday every since. A few
times, I missed the large link to connect the fine chained necklace.
The necklace has been lost at various public places twice. Each time,
it was found by someone and returned back to me. I wear it now because
it reminds me of my faith, my family and I believe it brings me good
luck. I even shower with the necklace. I will likely be buried with
this necklace. It does mean so much to me.
my aunt used to buy a lot of good jewelry when
she worked in a mill back in the 1940's. once she needed some cash and was going
to hock an opal gold ring, my mother bought the ring from her. My mom gave
me that ring when i graduated high school. it is worth quite a bit of money and
it means so much knowing its history.
when i was in high school, one of my classmates was
named Jack LaViano….nice guy but after we graduated lost track of my former
classmates…..zoom ahead 8 years, and when i was about to get engaged, my
future fiance asked if i knew a local jeweler to help select a diamond
engagement ring…mentioned that i thought Jack LaViano's family ran a local
jewelry store…we went in, and there behind the counter was my former
schoolmate….wonderfully helpful, and he helped us a pick out a perfectly
beautiful engagement ring……end of storybarbara mccallum

I was a kid I used to ride my bicycle to Tower Plaza Mall. I didn’t
have much money to spend, but there was a video arcade a few doors down from
the Schubach Jewelry Store. When I had exhausted my allowance, I’d
look into the windows of the store, fascinated by the watches and jewelry.
years later I became a client. Well, sort of. On my 16th
birthday my mother gave me a 14kt gold serpentine necklace (they were actually somewhat
popular then!). Being a teenage boy, I wasn’t always very careful
with it. It was easy to kink, and I would take it to Mr. Schubach for
repair, not wanting my parents to know how careless I had been. I still
didn’t have much money, and Mr. Schubach would always charge me a
ridiculously low repair fee.
the years progressed I’d take watches and other items to Mr. Schubach
whenever I managed to mangle another gift from my parents (which always came
with a speech about responsibility). As I began to earn money, first
delivering Penny Savers, then working at Cloth World as a stock boy, and eventually
my big move to Mary Coyle’s as a busy boy and waiter, I started
purchasing inexpensive gifts for Mother’s Day, birthdays, Christmas,
etc., from Schubach’s.
I remember most about that small storefront at Tower Plaza
is how well Mr. Schubach treated me, with the respect one might a high-dollar
customer. I was an awkward, insecure teenager, and wouldn’t even
enter the store unless Mr. Schubach was working, knowing that I’d be
treated like an adult, in spite of the fact that I had such limited spending
recall my mother losing a favorite earring – a lapis lazuli drop in a 14kt
filigree setting. She was devastated, as it had been an especially
meaningful gift from my father. I took the remaining earring to Mr.
Schubach, who scoured his catalogues in search of a replacement. He found
a similar pair, which I purchased, and which my mother still wears today.
the Schubachs decided to leave Tower
Plaza I felt as thought I
was losing a friend. I’m thrilled to know that Joe has continued
the family tradition, and look forward to becoming a client once again.

Definitions of Citrine:like a citron or lemon; of a lemon color; greenish yellow.But the elegant, energetic quartz Citrine comes in a variety of colors, ranging from pale yellow to brown to orange to reddish brown. Natural citrine (one of the most rare of of the quartz family) is a pale champagne yellow or orange.Citrine is reputed to be one of the most powerful of the quartz family as well. It is often called the "Kundalini quartz" because of its ability to fully activate and spiral all of the energy between your chakras.It is also one of the few minerals on the planet that transmutes rather than absorbs negative energies as well as being considered an "emotional balancer."And if that isn't enough, it also is rumored to help the heart, kidney, digestive tract, liver and muscle, promote creativity and eliminate self-destructive behavior.

Joseph Schubach Jewelers – Custom Designed Bobby Pin
The humble bobby pin was invented in 1922 as a way to keep the latest “bob” hairstyles in check. The bob haircut was popularized in the 20’s with silent screen stars like Colleen Moore (below.)
And while the bobby pins of yesteryear were a remarkable bargain…
Joseph Schubach Jewelers has upped the ante a little and created this dazzling blinged out bobby pin made from sterling silver with a genuine turquoise, diamond and 14kt white gold trim. (It’s a little more than a dime but well worth it.)
This remarkable one-of-a-kin bejeweled bobby pin will be the centerpiece of any hairdo, adding a sense of grace and finesse.
And in a pinch, you could pick a lock with it.
…. on the other hand, you may just want to call a locksmith.
My husband gave me a pink saphire ring when I gave birth to my daughter. It
is the most treasured piece of jewerly I own- it symbolozies mw becoming a
woman and also the birth of my my first baby
Ever since I was a little girl, I have been a huge fan of the Pink
Panther. Peter Sellers was so fantastic in that movie. He made me laugh
so hard. I watched every Pink Panther movie that came out. But, even
better then his performance was the magnificent Pink Panther. Not the
cartoon character, the diamond. Oh how I dreamt that one day I would
marry someone as rich as Richard Burton and he would buy me a big pink
In 2006 the new version of the Pink Panther with Steve Martin came out.
I am a huge fan of Steve Martin. Not only is "Roxanne" one of my
favorite movies but I also have read his books. I was so excited to go
see the movie and my husband and I talked about both versions after we
watched the new one. I told him about my dreams of having a big pink
diamond. So, last Christmas, even though money was tight, my husband
bought me a 3 carat pear cut pink sapphire. Even though it was not a
diamond, it was gorgeous!
I couldn't believe that he remembered my childhood dream. Now I have my
very own pink panther. And he is way better than Richard Burton!
