You’ve heard “Diamond’s are a girl’s best friend,” right? Well, no one knows that better than Krombholz Jewelers (aka the venue of our Night in White event next Friday!).
Well, diamonds and the Krombholz family will be the new BFFs of one lucky local lady. That’s because Krombholz Jewelers (a 70 year old company!) just snagged a great gig with the ABC network. The producers of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” gave Krombholz the honor of designing an engagement ring for the Dickinson family of South Carolina.
So, not only will the couple, along with their 6 children, get a brand new beautiful home, but India, the wife, will also get a specially crafted diamond ring, featuring the birthstones of each of their 6 children. As if this show wasn’t already a tear jerker! With only a matter of days, the jewelers at Krombholz designed a ring with a retail value of $17,000, but the sentimental value means so much more.
India’s husband, Bill, has served in the US Marine Cops for 17 years and is currently deployed over 7,000 miles away in Afghanistan. Because of his deployment and financial hardships, their home was hard to keep up with and was at the point of being inhabitable, so with the help of Ty and the design team, along with many South Carolina donors and volunteers, a new home was built in a week and the ring was presented to India by Bill, live via video chat, which meant a lot to him because he never had the chance to buy his wife an engagement ring.
Because of the great honor and recognition they have received because of this, Krombholz wants everyone to come celebrate with a viewing party, which will take place at Stir, across from their jewelry store in Olde Montgomery, on May 1 at 7 PM. Even though the public is invited, they are requesting RSVP’s by April 28, so be sure to contact them beforehand so you won’t miss out on the airing of the episode, along with a surprise video chat with India that is being planned for that night!
Most of us are well aware of the heart-wrenching series, so why not come shed a tear or two (or a million) while sharing some drinks with other Cincy Chic’ers? It will be a great time and a memorable moment for all who attend. Hope to see you there! (For more information on the event, check out Krombholz newsletter here.
