Earrings are often the most exciting pieces a jewelry designer could work on. Their close proximity to the face make their every little detail easily noticeable, and the way they are hung instead of wrapped around allows infinite possibilities of 360-degree sculptural designs – a freedom that could not be enjoyed by artists with the more restricted rings or bracelets. Diamond jewelry specialist A. Link loves to take these creative liberties to evoke beauty and elegance through its many notable earring pieces. The Figaro Chandelier Earring, part of A. Link’s Opera collection, lends an air of drama and timeless romance to the wearer’s visage and highlights her lovely features with a dazzling diamond backdrop. The image of the elaborately designed pair of diamond earrings cascading down to the neckline creates a lovely whimsical and sophisticated impression that makes a beautiful face difficult to forget.

Diamonds are a girl's best friends. But let's face the brutal fact – a woman does not typically understand the technical details of a cut diamond, nor does she really care much about it. Never mind that an A.

She will have no real grasp of paved setting nor tell the difference between an emerald and an asscher cut. In fact, she won't understand half of what had just been written. The one thing that will really speak to her is the A. Link’s dazzling sparkle of the gem when her man slips it on her finger; it’s the ring’s exceptional brilliance even under the least amount of light, and his loving effort in finding her the best diamond engagement or wedding ring there is.
Bring her the ring with a brilliance that speaks for itself and let A. Link help you out with that. Visit Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto and ask for A. Link’s alluring diamond engagement and wedding rings.
