Where has the time gone? 25 years ago, at the age of 18 I started working for DGJ. I didn't know much about jewelry or anything at that point . I was scared but very eager to learn . I have had the pleasure of working for some of the finest people in our industry , Maria,Joe,Tony, and Suzanne D'Ortenzio. I am who I am today because of the guidance you have given me over the years. As far as all of my past and present coworkers, I love all of you and it has    been an absolute blast working with you.

Engagement ring history

We looked at the engagement rings and it's origins in the first part of this blog series. We looked at how the ancients used rings as a business agreement more than love and we learned about the first diamond engagement ring. If you missed the first part of this topic, you can find it here. In this part we are going to pick up where we left off and talk about the modern engagement ring that we all know and love!
