Valentine’s Day

Legend has it that St. Valentine was imprisoned, fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and sent the first valentine greeting, a love letter signed “From your Valentine.” Today, Valentine’s Day is one of the most celebrated holidays, giving lovers the opportunity to display their devotion to one another. To signify love, many purchase diamond jewelry as the ultimate token.

Valentine's Day Hearts

There are many ways to give your heart in celebration of this year’s Valentine’s Day. Expressions of love in giving heart jewelry can be displayed by showing your personality and style. Designs range from geometric to classic, extravagant to colorful, and are available to fit any sense of style.


Hearts in gold, silver and platinum create a simple, elegant look. For a more detailed look, many women prefer gemstones set in the hearts– diamonds, rubies, sapphires and more. When paired with birthstones of children, these pieces have significant sentimental value. Pearls are often times set in hearts to give a feeling of nature and the delicate demeanor of the human heart.


Hearts can be suspended from a chain around the neck, as a pendant or locket. Pins and brooches can be worn to “wear your heart on your sleeve.” Heart earrings to frame the face are also a popular gift.


As you choose the expression of your emotion this Valentine’s Day, think of the unsaid words a heart can speak. Visit Casa D'Oro and let your heart speak through the lasting significance of our jewelry.

Mother's Day - Value Her

You may have taken different paths and directions on the incredible journey of life, but always remember from whence you came. Be sure to value the dedicated moms who have made a significant impact on who you are today. Giving a special gift of jewelry shows how much you care.


The first observance of Mother’s Day was in 1910 and credited to Anna M. Jarvis. After her mother’s passing in 1905, Jarvis began a campaign to declare a national holiday for mothers. She hoped this would increase the respect for parents and strengthen family bonds.


Strengthen these bonds of love and respect by choosing a gift such as: a mother’s ring, a locket, gemstone jewelry, diamonds or pearls, but always remember to choose a gift from the heart. This way, the receiver will know the significance of your thought, care and genuine love.


Men's Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday shopping can be stressful and time consuming, especially when trying to find a gift for the man in your life. Why not give him the gift of time? Keep him running on schedule with a new wristwatch and he will never need an excuse for being tardy. However, there are many things to consider when choosing a watch for your loved one. In order to get a perfect match, you will need to take into consideration his lifestyle, personality, and hobbies.


When Queen Elizabeth I was presented with the first known wristwatch in 1571, the watch became a symbol of status. In the eighteenth and nineteenth century, craftsmen made the watch a work of art while improving its efficiency. Today, modern technology has brought the watch to a peak of accuracy and beauty.


Men adorn themselves with wristwatches, not only to tell time, but also to display their personas. Whether it is sports, fashion, dress, Swiss or chronograph, there are watches available to appeal to any man's style.
