Coast Diamond Announces Sponsorship of Rings of Strength, a Jewelers for Children Event in Las Vegas

Coast Diamond is excited to announce our sponsorship of this year’s Rings of Strength event in Las Vegas. TEAM COAST will be getting up bright and early to run in the event, which takes place on Thursday, May 28, 2015. Please join us in supporting Jewelers for Children by joining “Team Coast” and/or donating through FirstGiving. Simply follow the link below to donate:

Rings of Strength began as a result of a beautiful story between two young children, Maggie and Odie, each battling cancer. Maggie gave her friend Odie a “ring of strength” as a reminder that she was supporting him in the fight for his life. After Odie sadly passed away in 2011, his mother presented Maggie with the same ring to encourage her to be brave. Over $100,000 has been raised by jewelers and supporters since this incredible event started in 2013, with funds going to children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Many thanks for your support – and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate or join!



Coast Diamond Engagement Ring of the Week: Rare Platinum and Demantoid Green Garnet Halo Ring


Coast Diamond 1.17 Carat Demantoid Green Garnet Platinum Halo Engagement Ring

Do you love the look of a spectacular and romantic halo ring, but also desire something different from a traditional round diamond in the center? Consider a rare demantoid (meaning “diamond like”) green garnet, set in a platinum halo of brilliant diamonds. According to the International Colored Gemstone Association, this “star of the green garnets” has incredible fire and brilliance, and is even reported to glow in the shade. The demantoid green garnet is one of the rarest gems in the world, and even more precious is this demantoid with the famous “horsetail” indicative of stones from Russia, set in a Coast Diamond platinum halo engagement ring setting. The horsetail inclusion in this green demantoid green garnet that weighs over a carat is highly sought-after by collectors. Coast Diamond is thrilled to offer this one-of-a-kind green garnet, rarer than a diamond and most other gemstones of comparable size, in this week’s featured engagement ring.

Due to the rarity of this ring, it is available only by special order and can only be seen at a Coast Diamond authorized dealer. Ask your local jeweler for Coast Diamond ring LSK10089-DG in platinum.

This ring is a one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Other rare gemstone rings are available in the Coast Diamond Signature Color Collection.

Bay Area couples searching for the perfect designer ring know exactly where to shop: Classic Rock, one of San Jose’s favorite jewelry stores for engagement rings, wedding bands, loose diamonds and fine jewelry.

Classic Rock has an impressive five star average on Yelp, and this recent Yelper’s review sums up why:

“I Love this place! There isn’t anything else I can say that hasn’t already been said by dozens of other pleased reviewers.  But I do know this, being from Texas I tend to miss the Southern hospitality, and all the fine people at Classic Rock exemplify that wonderful Southern charm. Finding this place was surely a blessing for me, and my new fiancé, she loves her ring!” 

Brides on Wedding Wire also give Classic Rock a solid five stars. Here are a two comments posted on the Wedding Wire website:

“The Classic Rock is a great jewelry store. We got my promise ring, my engagement ring, and our wedding rings through them. The staff is very friendly and they even gave my husband a little lesson on diamonds =)”

“Great team at Classic Rock. Jeanne will work tirelessly until you have exactly what you are looking for.”

Halo diamond engagement rings are trending now at Classic Rock. The first popular ring style, a unique Coast Diamond princess cut diamond halo ring, has two bands of delicate prong-set diamonds on each side of the halo:
