Hollywood and Blood Diamonds

Warner Bros. is gearing up to release The Blood Diamond, a movie staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Connelly. “The story that is going to be told is a true story, and we applaud that it is going to be told”, said World Diamond Council chairman Eli Izhakoff. The movie is said to focus on the illicit diamond trade that funded the civil war in Sierra Leone.


There is a special case at Curt Parker Jewelers that’s stocked with one-of-a-kind antique and vintage jewelry. 

You can never predict what Curt will put in there or how favorably he’ll price it. It’s his personal playpen, stocked with surprising pieces at very surprising prices. 

Some people here (we’ll refrain from naming names) think that Curt has lost his mind. But he thinks it’s fun to gleefully shock our best clients with unexpected bargains.  

What’s in Curt’s Vintage case today? You’ll be delightfully surprised... if you stop by. If you just can't wait you can see the jewelry by clicking on the surprise picture.


There's a new water boy in town! Curt Parker

I would like to say how excited we are about our new private label designer water, which is a major strategic step in our brand development,” said Curt Parker. It’s all about design, our private label designer water will help get our message out that we are the jewelry store who understands design.  

In a recent interview Curt was asked if he had a name for his designer water. I love our label so much I call it “Diamond Water”, clean and pure as diamonds and it taste good. CP water has no calories, fat, sodium or sugar. CP water keeps your body healthy and can be served ice cold or room temperature. Some say it is a conversation piece and a work of art. Come in today and try it. Best of all it's free!


Birthstone for August

Often called the “volcanic gem,” peridot usually forms in the rocks created by violent volcanic activity. On rare occasions, peridot also has been found in meteorites that have fallen to earth. No matter the source, whether from Mother Nature’s fiery depths or rocks that are truly out of this world, peridot has caught the attention of humans for thousands of years. Ranging from a light yellowish green to darker, richer shades of olive, peridot conjures images of young spring grass or the greens of a rich, dark forest at twilight.
