For all their exquisite beauty and glittering facets, diamonds are one of the hardest known substances because they have served a two-billion-year sentence in the earth’s maximum-security prison. Pick out a few tattoo-free gems with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 toward fine jewelry and gifts at Vincenté Jewelers in Freeport.
Drawing on the rock-appraising skills of an on-site diamond expert, Vincenté Jewelers constructs custom-made jewelry, bracelets, and watches, setting each diamond within the store’s work area. The faceted jewels, imported from Israel via solid-gold catapult, make up most of the baubles in Vincenté Jewelers’ specialty engagement and wedding rings selection. Fancify the lobiest parts of the ears with a set of colored-stone earring studs ($60–$80) or a gold hoop earring ($100), which fingers can also use to hula back into shape for swimsuit season. Otherwise, encircle beloved noggin pedestals with a silver designer piece necklace ($100) or provoke the seething envy of collarbones with diamond-decorated birthstone pendants ($200).
