“I have to tell you a nice story,” announces Silvio as he places a small pouch on the corner of the glass display and reaches in to reveal its contents. “A while ago, a young woman who lives in town lost one of the Citrine and Sapphire earrings her boyfriend had recently given her. She felt really bad.”
“I was not sure I could find a citrine of the same color or the same ‘briolet’ cut, but I did find one through a friend in Santa Fe. The woman was so excited when I called her to let her know.”
