~ Treasures ~

“I chose Vivian Wise to be a Valobra Treasure because she is outrageously passionate about anything she pursues. She is driven and relentless as only a true survivor could be ~ a mighty fighter coiffed in pink, oozing of style and sensuality. Houston is lucky to have her and I am honored to call her a Treasure!”

What was the first piece of jewelry you ever received or purchased for yourself?

The very first piece I actually bought for myself was from Valobra. I wanted to treat myself for my 40th birthday. I had just called off my wedding and used the scheduled reception as a 40th birthday party. I went to Valobra the next week to buy an all diamond bracelet. Bought it all by myself for myself.

Tell us two of your qualities that make you a gem.

I can’t give you just two! I’m gregarious, irreverent, indomitable, loyal, and some would say downright hilarious.

Rubies, sapphires, or emeralds? And Why?

None of the above, the gems of my choice are pink diamonds. Diamonds as an element are indestructible. They can cut glass. They originate from carbon and they turn into something beautiful, unique, and brilliant in their scintillation.

Share with us your pearls of wisdom.

If you could click your ruby slippers together and transport to a vacation somewhere, where would it be?
