People celebrate special occasions by decorating things with baubles, as evidenced by hanging ornaments on Christmas trees and emptying drums of diamonds over winning coaches. Bauble up with today's Groupon: for $99, you get $300 worth of jewelry at JB&B Jewelers in Los Altos.
JB&B Jewelers' more than 10 cases of crystalline gemstones and mirror-finished metals lure passersby searching for shimmering trinkets to adorn their fingers, necks, and earlobes. Store owner Cynthia and resident jewelry sage Gina guide shoppers through the labyrinthine collection of lavish accessories, which include pieces made of silver ($50–$200) and gold fitted with semiprecious stones ($325+) or diamonds ($420–$6,000). The flashy adornments, crafted by local and international artisans, demand attention with onyx, amethyst, moonstone, and tourmaline stones, whose faceted surfaces glint like Mr. Clean's forehead.
