Diamonds have long been the traditional stone for engagement rings with sapphires coming in as a clear second. But why follow the curve when more unique and affordable alternatives can be just as priceless and better fit your personality?
Rule #1: It has to fit your PERSONALITY!
Rule #2: This has to be THE Ring you will LOVE to wear everyday for the rest of your Life!
Rule #3: Looking at other stones, refer to the MOH chart - basically meaning it's durability and resistance to scratching . Aim for nothing lower than 7.0.
Rule #4: Anniversaries are meant to upgrade your ring - whether by adding bands or enhancing the mounting!
The Cardow Virgin Islands Pro-Diver is a stamp of luxury, adventure, and cultural appreciation upon the wearer. Dating back much further than any, amongst the myriad of stores on Mainstreet, we have had to establish an elevated standard for our service and products. Cardow Jewelers has maintained a level of quality and reputation synonymous to excellence and precision. These, same, standards are obvious in the VI Pro Diver Collection.
After having been commissioned by the Carnival Committee and Governor John P. DeJongh, Jr. to create a piece of jewelry, commemorating the 60th anniversary of St. Thomas Carnival, the original United States Virgin Islands timepiece was created. Cardow wanted to create a watch that would incorporate the essence of three of our most popular local pastimes, fishing, sailing, and diving in the case of a fashionable timepiece. Each watch demonstrates in great detail the islands of St. Thomas, Water Island, St. John, and St. Croix. Often used as diplomatic gifts amongst our local and visiting politicians, the VI Pro Diver has become a significant part of the Virgin Islands’ current and recent history.
Equipped with a unilaterally rotating fluted bezel and a screw down crown, this watch can securely accompany you scuba diving at extreme depths or, simply, slowly swimming at the surface of Magens Bay. With a water resistance of over 656 feet, the Pro Diver surprisingly embraces the countless gazes directed towards it because of its detail and elegance. The beauty and precision of the Pro Diver make it ideal at a black tie event, while fostering the spirit of the adventurer. Every detail of this watch, from the Sapphire Crystal to the Superluminova markers, have been added, reviewed and improved for the sole purpose of creating an affordable and precise luxury sport timepiece.
