  • Another Gems From The Heart Story Contest Entry

    My boyfriend and I were planning a day trip to NYC to go to
    Central Park and see Rockefellar Center, the skating rink and all the
    Christmas decorations. He had picked where we would eat, and I picked
    the date we would go up, so it was a joint effort. We took the
    chinatown bus up from philly and surprisingly my boyfriend seemed to
    know exactly where to go, he led us from the subway station to the
    park, and we were walking through and he led me up to this beautiful
    bridge called "bow bridge" in central park. I told him I loved the
    bridge, it had such beautiful detail. While we were on top of the
    bridge admiring the view he told me he had a surprise for me, so he
    told me to turn around and close my eyes. When i turned back around to
    face him, I found him down on one knee with a beautiful princess cut,
    white gold, engagement ring in his hand. He asked me to marry him, and
    I said yes. Little did I know that he had the ring for over a month,
    and that two weeks prior to our trip, he came up with friend to scope
    out the route to get to Central Park, and he came to Central Park to
    find the "perfect" place to propose. After we got engaged I returned to
    my mom's house where I was living at the time and another gift awaited
    me…it was a wrapped, framed photograph of the bridge where we got
    engaged. He picked it up when he was in NYC planning it all out. It was
    a perfect day!

     It may sound corny, but I have always had a special
    place in my heart for jewelry.  I consider myself lucky, as I have some
    very special pieces, connected with special  times and happy
    memories.  When I became engaged to my husband, my in-laws gave me
    beautiful diamond earrings as a gift.  My wedding ring, was
    actually designed with my husband's grandmother's diamond.  When my
    oldest son, was in first grade he purchased a large, gaudy dragon pin for my
    Chanukah present at the school store.  I couldn't have loved any gift
    more.  It was beautiful, even when the  dragon's glass eyes proceeded
    to fall out the next day.  Jewelry  is truly the way to my
         I believe I was about eight years old, when my
    Papa Marty took me to a fancy jewelry store in Downtown Detroit.  He
    presented me with the most beautiful sterling silver charm bracelet, any girl
    could ever want. It  had little hearts between the links. I felt
    like a princess that day and the salespeople treated me like royalty. Thus,
    also began my grandfather buying me charms for special occasions (
    like getting an egg beater charm when I got the girl scout cooking
    badge) or buying charms just for fun.  My wrist grew heavy and so does
    my heart with memories of this special gift and love for my Papa
    Marty.  He has been dead for over forty years, but he charmed my
    life.  He was the 'gem' of my life.

    When my husband and I got married, in 1972, we were
    completely broke.  We used a ring he had given me while we were dating – a
    white gold band with Love on it. 
    For our 25th Wedding Anniversary, he surprised me
    with a gold duplicate of that ring, but it has a diamond in it.  Not a big
    diamond, but the thought was incredible!

    My fiance and i were young and since we were both teachers we had little money.
    I wasn't even sure I'd receive an engagement ring.

    But I did and my first thought was, "That's the ugliest ring I ever
    saw!"  (I was pretty sure the tiny "diamond" was cubic zirconia and
    there were a lot crudely wrought traceries and rosettes around the
    stone that gave the ring a certain dime store air).

    But of course I didn't voice my feelings.  He looked so sweet and pleased with himself.
    He put the ring on my left hand.  When family and friends asked to see it I did my best to respond with pride.

    Over the years we built a good marriage and became financially
    successful.  My husband presented me with jewelry over the years but I
    never took that engagement ring off.  It came to represent our love
    story, a small beginning investment that led to many happy dividends
    over a long life together.

    He's gone now and yes, I still wear that ugly little ring.

    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.

    My Special Jewelry Story:
    My wonderful husband proposed to me in a very sweet way!
    He arranged to have his parents and me meet for dinner at
    Our favorite German restaurant. We were seated at our table and I noticed a very pretty floral arrangement in the center of the
    Table. There was baby's breath and a few roses. Everyone
    Was chatting and I happened to notice that one of the roses
    Was actually a velvet rose bud, not fully blossomed! Every
    Now and then I would look at other peoples' tables to see if
    They had the same kind of floral arrangement at their tables,
    But I couldn't really tell because it was crowded and the roses
    And baby's breath arrangements were looking all the same.
    I kept stealing glances at the velvet rose bud but I didn't say
    Anything to my fiance or his parents. After our meal, a little
    3-man German band came to our table and played and sang
    "Edelweiss", my favorite German song! And then a waitress
    Dressed in German clothing came to the table with a gorgeous
    Mini 3-layer cake decorated with red roses!! Then my fiance
    Plucked the velvet rose from the centerpiece, got out of his
    Chair, all the while the band was singing "Edelweiss", and he
    Took my hand, opened the velvet rose bud and there was a
    Gorgeous diamond engagement ring!!! Then the band finished
    Singing and my fiance proprosed to me!!!! Through tear-filled
    Eyes and a huge grin, I said "Yes!!"  Everyone in the restaurant
    Clapped and cheered!! It was one of the most special moments
    In our lives! We recently celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary! Thank you for this wonderful contest!

  • Memories of “Mr. Schubach” – Another Gems From The Heart Story Contest Entry

    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.


    A few
    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.
