Not sure about the 4 C’s? Leave the Cut, Clarity, Color and Carat to Christina Termine, owner of Key Biscayne’s jewelry salon, Diamonds On The Key. “I’ve been doing this for 35 years and am thrilled to share my experience, knowledge and tricks of the trade,” she says. “My clients should be focused on celebrating their happy moments — I’ll take care of the rest!” A Boston native, she arrived to Miami more than 16 years ago after earning a Graduate Diamonds Diploma from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), regarded as the world’s foremost authority in gemology. “Forming a reliable and trusting bond with your jeweler is just as significant as the trust you’d develop with a doctor, real estate agent, lawyer or financial advisor,” she says. “My aim is always to provide the very best services at the very best price for every budget.” Whether you want to spend $100 or $1 million, consultations are always complimentary at Diamonds On The Key. “I’ll professionally guide you through the diamond or gemstone selection process, settings, materials, custom jewelry creation, heirloom makeovers and everything in between,” she says. “I’ve also developed quite a knack for helping my clientele select the perfect gift for any occasion.” The proof is in her stellar track record. “I’ve been honored to have provided engagement rings for so many happy couples throughout the years — I’ve even assisted them on how and where to pop the question. So far, the answer has always been YES,” she says. “Perhaps the sweetest thing is that now I’m creating engagement rings for the sons and daughters of some of my closest friends…kids I’ve held since birth, watched them grow up, fall in love, get engaged and eventually walk down the aisle with their whole bright future ahead of them. It’s truly a blessing and one of the greatest joys of my career.”;
