Manoli Savvenas can still remember smelling the Aegean Sea air as he tried to out-maneuver his friends kicking a soccer ball made from old rags.
“We didn’t have toys. But it was a very happy childhood. We’d get hungry from playing, so we’d go home and eat a slice of bread. We’d wet it with water and put a little sugar on it,” he says.

Clean jewelry sparkles more. So have Manoli’s Jewelers clean your jewelry and you’ll sparkle for the holidays.

Then we rinse your jewelry off and then steam it using a steamer that produces about 70 to 90 PSI of steam. So that adds the finishing touch to the cleaning. After all of this, we recheck your jewelry to make sure everything is as it should be.
We do this at no charge to you. So come in and get all of your fine jewelry cleaned professionally.

What do you think about using sapphire for an engagement ring-Yes or No?
First of all, sapphire occurs in all colors (when it is red it is ruby). Technically sapphire is a variety of corundum and ruby is the red variety of corundum. Sapphire is all of the other colors (other than red) of corundum.
Sapphire is hard (on s scale of 1 to 10, sapphire ranks a 9) and hardness refers to it’s resistance to scratching and thus it’s durability.
So if you want an alternative to diamond, then sapphire is a good consideration. Customers can choose from genuine sapphires in many colors in our store. We have a rainbow of sapphire colors in various yellows, oranges, greens, violets, blues and pinks.
Here are a few pictures of sapphire in rings that would work for an engagement ring. What do you think of these?
