Gloria's Featured Piece
Years ago, after buying my mother a near perfect Emerald cut 2CT Diamond, I jokingly told her that would be the biggest stone she would probably ever get from me.
The following year I came across this big stone and thinking this would be the best practical joke, I could set my mother off into the stratosphere as she does not wear large stones as a rule. Finding the ugliest purse, I could get my hands on and to continue with my practical joke on my mother I had the stone set and hid it in the purse.
Laughing gleefully, I felt I had pulled the ultimate prank on my mother and couldn’t wait for her to unwrap the gift at Christmas. ( I had a real back up gift after she opened this one). Much to my surprise my mother LOVED this stone and continues to wear it upon occasion, hence the birth of
286 CT SWISS BLUE TOPAZ
68G OF PURE GOLD SETTING AND NECKLACE
Moral of this story? Never try to pull pranks on your mother. (Not For Sale)
