Colorado Snowstorm?  New Engagement Rings Will Keep You Warm!

February, 02 2016

Always designing, creating, and evolving.  Always. 

John graces us with three brand new designs for the New Year.  Rhythm, Reflection and Fantasy. Common to each of these is the all-encompassing embrace of secure gold around brilliant round diamonds.  What makes them different, however, is what also makes them uniquely John Atencio.

Rhythm appears as a variation of a time-honored favorite with a little flair of its own.  The ultimate compliment to the

Season of Engagement

January, 12 2016

I really despise using blanket definitions for blog introductions.  Really, I do.  However, in this case, I will quell those feelings to emphasize my point. 

What is trust?  Trust is defined as ‘reliance on the integrity, strength, and ability of a person or thing’ as well as ‘the obligation or responsibility imposed on a person in whom confidence or authority is placed’. 

John Atencio has been in business for 40 years.  We

Go Big or Go Home

November, 04 2015

It’s not the size that matters.  Really.  It isn’t.  Contradiction to the blog title?  Not exactly.  Going big here is referenced to the commitment.  Commitment to creating the surprise, commitment to making the decision.  Ladies and gentlemen alike, you are in a relationship with ONE other person.  That individual whom you know best.  They are with you for many reasons, but the most important one being that you are the one with whom

Scotch and Rocks

November, 02 2015

Scotch and Rocks was held this last week at the John Atencio Clayton Lane store.  Fifty connoisseurs of the drink (and diamonds!) were in attendance.  Peter Gilbert, the expert presenter of five different Scotch brands, was both animated and informative during the course of the evening.  An educated appreciation for the process was truly enjoyed by all. Peter's wealth of knowledge was a perfect pairing for the invited guests.  The list included professionals in the

Fall is Upon Us

October, 29 2015

Do you know what I love?  I love fall and everything it brings with it.  Walking through fallen leaves on a crisp day, hearing the crunching sound they make with each step.  I love layering in warm sweaters and boots and I love accessorizing with jewelry.  

It’s the week of goblins and ghouls.  Sure, I enjoy dressing up, on occasion, as an old witch or even the most recent superhero to hit the big screen.  But my favorite way to dress for the season

The One

The One


Anticipation. The planning and build up to the big event - the proposal.  It’s a new chapter in your life; an exciting new venture to be shared and remembered for a lifetime.   There are few who can make this as memorable and happy an occasion as the jeweler with whom you choose to help you pick ‘the one’. 

Education and knowledge are important, yes.  But so are the intangible things you cannot quantify.

Press On

October, 11 2015


A big word with an ugly meaning.  The first time you heard it quite possibly was in an educational setting.  You understood the chemistry of it all.  Maybe you heard of it in relation to someone else who had developed it.  It hit closer to home.  Or maybe, its when the doctor told you YOU have it.   It became personal.

The levels of understanding become pronounced when your name is in conjuction with the disease.  A positive
