PRLog - Aug. 1, 2012 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland, OR: Brilliant diamonds have been Shreve & Co.’s tour de force for 160 years.
Bostonian by Hearts On Fire®
In keeping with that tradition, Shreve will present a dazzling collection of hundreds of loose diamonds in all cuts and sizes; diamond engagement rings, wedding bands and mountings for the event.
The fiery brilliance of diamonds has been cherished and coveted by men and women for millennia. The ancients wore them as talismans of good fortune, and thought they were tiny splinters of falling stars. Today, diamonds are worn as symbols of enduring love. “Every diamond is as unique as it’s wearer,” said Vance Schiffman, diamond buyer and co-owner of Shreve & Co., “and once a diamond is set in its mounting, it becomes a symbol of the wearer’s personal style – whether its the simple elegance of a classic solitaire, a 3 stone ring or a vintage-style diamond pavé setting.” The Brilliance Event will showcase diamonds and mountings from Christopher Designs, Hearts On Fire®, Harry Kotlar, Precision Set, Shreve Signature Diamonds, Steven Kretchmer and SUNA Brothers
We’ll trade you...
Those who own a diamond ring, but dream of something new – a larger stone, a different cut or a finer quality stone – are encouraged to bring their old diamond in for evaluation and trade. Shreve will make an offer, and if agreeable, issue a credit to be used towards the purchase of a new diamond. Those who love their diamonds, but want a glam new look, can select a new setting for their gem from the hundreds of mountings featured at the event or have one custom designed.
The perfect setting for a proposal...
Customers, spending $5,000 or more during the 2 day diamond event, will receive a complimentary 3 night cruise on Carnival Cruise Line courtesy of Shreve & Co.
A breathtaking collection of loose diamonds and beautiful mountings will be featured at the Brilliance Diamond Event at Shreve & Co., 640 SW Broadway, on Friday, August 17th and Saturday, August 18th For more information or to make an appointment for a private showing, call Randy Harris at 971.295.5555.
Shreve & Co. was established in 1852, just four years after the discovery of Gold on the West Coast and a year after Portland was incorporated. When the Shreve’s opened the doors to their jewelry store in downtown San Francisco they showcased fine timepieces, high quality gold and silver jewelry, diamonds and precious stones. Then as it remains today: the service was impeccable, the merchandise of the highest caliber and the designs trendsetting – “must haves” for city’s most affluent residents. The oldest retailer and jeweler in California, Shreve & Co.’s flagship store has been located at the corner of Post Street and Grant Avenue in Union Square since 1906. The firm also has a store at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto,
