The name Caro74 is derived from the Italian word Caro, meaning “beloved”, and the seventy-four facets used in the cutting of their diamonds. Each diamond used in a Caro74 setting has a patent-pending 74 facet cut, versus the common 58 facet diamond. These incredibly brilliant stones create sheer radiance in every setting. With a commitment to excellence, each Caro74 design is uniquely crafted with the bride in mind. Each setting and matching band contains a small “kiss” diamond on the side of the shank. When paired with a matching Caro74 wedding band, the diamonds will “kiss”, representing the sacred unity of marriage.
In the late 1920’s a young boy followed his dreams in what was to become, one of the world’s preeminent crystal growers. Carroll Chatham took his avid interest in chemistry and pursued his dream by endeavoring to duplicate nature’s process to create a diamond after creating a lab in his family’s garage at the young age of 12. One attempt resulted in an explosion that rattled his San Francisco neighborhood, as well as the police. To calm the police and his parents, he shifted his focus to growing emerald crystals, hoping a crystal formation would not require immense pressure. Many years passed with nothing to show for his on and off again attempts. In 1931, Chatham entered college, leaving his latest efforts in his family’s garage still running in his absence. As fate would have it, Chatham’s father turned off the power supply to his science project. This simple action caused his emerald crystals to grow in the crucible, and the legacy was born. After creating emeralds in 1938, laboratory grown rubies, alexandrites, blue sapphires, and orange sapphires all came to fruition over many decades of research in the hands of Carroll Chatham. A few years after his passing in 1983, his lifelong dream of diamond cultivation finally became a reality for his son, Tom. Today, Chatham is still recognized as the leader of created gemstones, creating beautiful stones with the same chemical makeup as those found in nature. The company’s unbeatable Lifetime Warranty and Certificate of Authenticity assure reliability and long-term value.
Claude Thibaudeau traces his roots in jewelry back to 1872 when his great-grandfather, Ulric Thibaudeau, opened up a small jewelry boutique in Montreal. The company stayed in the family and continued to grow and expand, becoming Ed. Thibaudeau et Fils Inc. In 1983, at the age of 25, Claude took on a major challenge by designing his own jewelry collection in the basement of his home in Châteauguay, a suburb of Montreal. The Creation Thibaudeau line entered the U.S. market by 1992 and made an international debut in 1998. In 1993, for the line’s 10th anniversary, Claude Thibaudeau created the Pure Perfection Collection (Platinum & 24kt) and The Inseperables (two-piece intertwined bands). Again in 2007, celebrating 135 years of family tradition in the jewelry business, Claude Thibaudeau Designs launched their latest and greatest collection: European Micro-Pave, exquisite hand created masterpieces set using a microscope by Claude’s handpicked craftsmen. Through all of his beautiful collections, his unique pieces are recognized all over the world for their unsurpassed quality and incredible attention to detail.
