What Does Jewelry Mean To Me?

Valerie and Manoli Savvenas

After being in the jewelry business for 33 years I asked myself this question. What does jewelry mean to me?  I am around jewelry all of the time and I love it and I understand the investment and intrinsic value but…..mostly…

I remember my MOM buying me my first diamond ring when I was 6…she did this for all of the girls.  We were poor…I guess that is the right word for it, although I didn’t know we were poor.  My parents were divorced and we lived with my wonderful Grandparents.  But that ring was something special.  I lost it many years later but the memory and meaning is still with me.

I remember buying my own real 14 karat opal earrings after I had my first real job at 18.

Manoli & I walked Bergenline Ave in Union City, New Jersey looking for wedding bands back in 1973.  He was a pro. wrestler back then and not back into the jewelry business….yet.  We purchased plain milgrain edged bands for our wedding.  We still have them.

I remember him trying his best to hide my 2 carat diamond ring from me until we could get to Greece and give it to me on our tenth anniversary.  He gave it to me on a balcony overlooking the Agean Sea in Rhodes, Greece.  I still wear that diamond today…28 years later.  I have remounted it a few times since then.

So I remember those early purchases and milestones and I think that is the most important part about jewelry…the memories.

What do you think?  Think about it….and feel free to comment.  I would love to hear your thoughts.

You might ask why you should go to Manoli’s Jewelers in Springfield, MO?

We think these following reasons are important.

1. Manoli and Valerie are a master goldsmith and graduate gemologist team since 1979.

A master goldsmith is someone who is an expert at working with gold and a master with gold can work with silver and platinum, too.

Manoli started his goldsmith career in Greece and worked in Australia, New York and Kansas City before he moved to Springfield, MO where he and his wife, Valerie, purchased a wholesale jewelry business doing work for other jewelry stores.
You get a lot of experience when you do work for up to 50 jewelry stores and you learn to do it right and fast with often a 2 to 3 day turnaround time.

Valerie became a graduate gemologist training with the Gemological Institute of America “GIA”
What is a graduate gemologist?  It is a person who has completed a program that teaches you everything about diamonds and about colored gemstones and gem identification.
Valerie then went on to take jewelry appraisal classes and updates her gem identification skills as needed.

So Valerie knows all about the diamonds they sell and stands behind each diamond.

Manoli and Valerie bought a retail store in 1985 and were the first master goldsmith and graduate gemologist in Springfield, MO.

Manoli and-or Valerie will help you with your jewelry needs.

2. Manoli’s Jewelers offers creative custom designs and have unique jewelry in a warm boutique type store.  “Dare to be Unique”

3. Last but not least, Manoli’s Jewelers offers fair pricing-no gimmicks or fake sales.  Our goal is to offer great value and outstanding work at a fair price.

Bridal Jewelry Made in America

Is it important to you?  To have your jewelry made in America.  I have talked with the primary manufacturer of our bridal jewelry and I have been assured that over 70% of our bridal jewelry is made in their US facilities and that if we request it that everything can be made here in the USA.

As a jeweler it is common to have many things from other countries.  Our watch parts are Swiss made.  Most of our chain is made in Italy.  Our diamonds are sourced from many parts of the world.  We sell lots of jewelry that is made in Greece

But if it’s important to you then your engagement rings are or can be made in America then come to Manoli’s Jewelers in Springfield MO.
