Travis and Jade
Travis and I met in April of 2007. We both knew right away it was forever! In May he asked me to be his wife and gave me the most beautiful ring I've ever seen. We heard about Donny's Diamond Gallery through our friend that had a custom ring made. She spoke of the great experience she had with Donny in designing it. When Travis decided he was ready to look at rings, he remembered our friend's story, and decided to start with Donny. Travis had in mind what he wanted. He sat down with Donny and told him certain things he was looking for. Together with Trav's imagination, Donny's creativity,experience, and a piece of paper, they designed my "one-of-a-kind" ring! Donny considered each and every idea and desire Travis had in designing this ring. When Travis left the store that day, he said Donny was the most professional jeweler he had ever worked with and had no intention of ever doing business elsewhere.
George and Bobbi Williams
“If you dream it, Donny will create it”. That was on the radio on that Saturday in March, 2008.
We are Bobbi and George Williams. We are not young teenagers in love. We are young sexygenarians in love. We have lived many years of life, experiencing the realities of marriage, family, child raising, job fulfillment, and pretty well have a plan for what we want for the remainder of our lives. We have been friends for eleven years and long ago we referred to our time together as, “Bobbi and George’s Great Adventure”. For young sexygenarians, we were happily on a roll.
We became engaged in Arlington, Virginia, on December 3, 2007 and moved to Huntsville, Alabama. On Saturday, March 20, 2008. We were driving around Huntsville, looking for a jewelry store. We wanted a set of wedding rings; a set that would be unique for us. We had googled the internet for wedding bands with black coral inlays (initial choice) and had talked with a major store in Hawaii about making or modifying rings, but were not satisfied. We had spent time in jewelry stores in Huntsville looking for a custom rings, but just did not find the perfect rings.
But, on that Saturday, the voice on the radio said, “Blah, blah, blah… Donny will create it”. “What did that say”, George asked? “Something about Bob Wallace” Bobbi responded. We waited and there it was again, “If you dream it, Donny will create it. On Memorial Parkway at Bob Wallace Drive.” We were two blocks away.
We found Donny’s Diamond Gallery and met Donny. He had a firm handshake and a big smile. “How can I help you”, he asked. We told Donny that we were looking for a set of Gold Wedding Bands with black coral inlays and we sketched out what we had in mind. Donny showed us his display rings and catalogs with many new designs, but with Donny’s help our concept of a wedding band design evolved differently.
We decided on a heavy, 9mm wide gold wedding band with alternating blue sapphires and diamonds. Bobbi wanted an engagement ring; something to show that she was “Spoken for”, but we didn’t want a traditional diamond ring that would not blend well with the wedding band. So Donny helped us design a 5mm wide gold band with the sapphires and diamonds for Bobbi for an engagement ring, and Donny would have two 2mm gold bands soldered to the outsides of the engagement ring just before the ceremony to create the final wedding band for Bobbi. They were perfect. They are beautiful. They are uniquely George and Bobbi, and the Adventure continued. We were married 29 November 2008. Donny and Fatemeh attended. Life is good.
Our next stop is to talk to Donny about our new idea: One ruby for each year we are married. We envision adding one small ruby to each ring on each anniversary so we do not lose count. We will have the “Unfinished Wedding Bands” to signify our unfinished marriage.
Bobbi and George wholeheartedly recommend Donny’s Diamond Gallery for your unique jewelry needs. If you can dream it, Donny will create it.

Jewelry is to be worn and enjoyed. I had jewelry I inherited from relatives and was given in past relationships, which I no longer wore. I couldn't bear to sell this jewelry because it was part of my family and personal history.
My husband decided to give me a jewelry make-over for Christmas 2007. I drew my design for my pendant to symbolize our love for each other and our hobby, ballroom dancing. Donnie was able to use all my stones from my old jewelry and create a new masterpiece at a reasonable price. I now have a one of a kind piece of jewelry that I wear daily. Thanks Donnie!
Dear Mr. Maleknia,
Thank you so much for the dog and cat charms. They are so cute! It was so nice of you to get them for me. The dog charm looks like my dog. The cat is so pretty with the flowers.
Thanks so much!
