Around Town: West Virginian Wins $20,000 in Tacori from Local Store

Every day at Tacori is a celebration of love and through a partnership with Lewisburg Diamond and Gold, a Lewisburg local has recently won $20,000 in Tacori jewelry. In mid-July last year, Tacori announced they would give away $100,000 in jewelry to a total of 5 winners. The rules for entry included visiting a Tacori dealer, ie. Lewisburg Diamond and Gold; taking a photo of the Tacori jewelry; and lastly, posting the photo to Instagram with #lovetacori. With over a thousand entries, a Lewisburg local beat all the odds and won the $20,000 in Tacori jewelry this past June.

Tacori is a jewelry line that is retailed throughout the United States and Canada. Based in Glendale, California, Tacori is a jewelry design house and manufacturer. Tacori designs are made in the United States and every piece is handcrafted in California. This brand is well known for its association with bridal and fashion jewelry and was founded in 1979 by Haig and Gilda Tacorian, a Romanian couple who both grew up in Soviet-occupied Romania. The company was first based in downtown Los Angeles in the jewelry district and primarily focused on pearls until the early 90’s. With television shows such as the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, the company began investing into the bridal and fashion world. In 2013, they were named “top five most visible brands” in the jewelry category by INDESIGN magazine.

Similar with Tacori’s story, Lewisburg Diamond and Gold is a multi-generation family run business. They say they are thrilled that they were able to fill someone’s dreams with exquisite jewelry that will touch their lives forever. The LDG family invites you to visit them for handcrafted pieces that last a lifetime, including high-end watches, engagement rings, loose diamonds, estate jewelry, and so much more. They carry Makur, Tacori, Le Vian, and True Romance. They are located at 2079 Jefferson St N (across from Walmart). Follow them on facebook @lewisburgdiamondandgold or call them at 304-645-4020.
