After days of shopping at the ""big chain"" jewelry stores with no results, walking in to Barbara's shop was a breath of fresh air. From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable, as if I was an old friend of Barbara's. Bottom line: Barbara treats you like an actual human being and isn't out to empty your pockets. She's out to educate, and get you the best piece of jewlery for your money. Barbara will be your jeweler for life!
