Love is in the Air at Long Jewelers

Happy couple gets engaged

Long Jewelers had come highly recommended to Randy Barnard, so he knew that is exactly where he would go to find the perfect engagement ring for his fiancée Michele Van Moppes. Michele had a vision of her perfect ring. Long Jewelers owner Steve Long took her vision and turned it into her dream engagement ring.  Steve Long knows, and has witnessed over the years, "The right diamond will talk to a woman," and that was certainly the case with Michele.  Randy was just as excited to see the look on her face as she was to see her ring!

"When I saw the ring for the first time I knew it was "the one.' I immediately got goose bumps and actually began to cry- happy tears of course- because it was so breathtakingly beautiful! Absolutely one-of-a-kind!"
