One chapter was when my Mom first took me to one of my (now) favorite stores in Kansas City. I remember walking past the windows and seeing the bright, colored stones and the sparkling diamonds. Naturally, nothing makes an impression quite like diamonds! As I grew up and my tastes continued to be shaped and refined, one thing never changed - I still loved going into Tivol!

And...I knew that there I would find the perfect, classic piece. What's more classic than a diamond solitaire necklace? Only a diamond solitaire necklace in platinum! To this day, it is still one of my most favorite pieces. It represented an ideal that I somehow developed as a child of the quintessential, classic woman. Not to mention, it goes with everything!

Mine is set in platinum & is a staple of my wardrobe.

It is .51 carats & matches the diamond in my wedding ring exactly. I have always loved cushion cut stones.
