When a diamond is presented, it means commitment, devotion and gratitude. “The carat weight, cut and cost is unique to each individual and occasion,” says Christina Termine, Owner of Diamonds On The Key. “The common denominator is the desire to give something from the heart.” As the island’s only full-service jewelry salon, Termine, who is celebrating 10 years in business on Key Biscayne, offers her exclusive clientele not only a large selection of GIA certified diamonds but also fine gemstone jewelry designs, appraisal services, expert repairs, custom designs and “jewelry makeovers.” She believes that the small size of the island combined with strong community values makes Key Biscayne an ideal setting for her business. “I truly love what I do,” she says. “I greatly enjoy sharing my knowledge and expertise in diamonds, especially with those individuals who entrust me to design their engagement ring or reset a precious gemstone that has been handed down for generations.”; DiamondsOnTheKey.com.
Nostalgia is in the air as we re-introduce you to a few Key Biscayne mothers we’ve profiled over the years to see what it was like raising their kids on the island now that they are all grown up.
When we first profiled Barbara & Tino Peña and their family 11 years ago in a wildly popular “Super Parents!” feature, their four children ranged in age from 10 months to 8 years old. Today, the parents are the wiser for it and their kids have grown up right before their very eyes.
