Valentine's day cards, gifts, Oro de Rey, Gold of the King, Gary King, love, romance, gifts, Winnipeg Custom design jeweller

It’s bitterly cold outside today.  A perfect day to stay inside next to the fire with a good book in hand and your favourite music playing.

I’ve been taking pictures of Valentine’s Day cards my mother in law has saved through the years.  Her favourites are from the Victorian Era  conjuring up silk, satin, lace, cherub like faces and flowers.  I’ve heard the expression “the flowering of affection” used to describe that era of cards.

Very different from how affection and love might be expressed today.


I’m working on 3 custom design projects right now – engagement rings for 3 very different people and what a pleasure it is helping them design the perfect ring for them.

Each has a different life style, different income level, different idea of what their rings should look like.  There are different gemstones that will be the centrepiece for each ring.  All will be absolutely beautiful,  custom design rings representing the commitment to the love each of them has for the other.  All of them will be unique – because each of them is.
