Your Old Jewelry Remodeled Into Bright New Jewelry E VERY one has old family heirlooms mounted in the style of many years ago, generally awkward masses of gold, impossible to wear. The stones, no doubt, are splendid, but the settings are antiquated and no longer considered beautiful. For a fraction of their total value the experienced craftsmen of the Curtis manufacturing establishment can remount these jewels in settings worthy of them. We will be pleased to submit designs of gold or platinum mountings. Our estimates will apprise you of what a moderate expenditure will do in making new and fashionable jewelry out of old jewelry. Now--while yon arc at the seashore or in the mountains, would be a good time to leave your old jewels with us for remodeling. They will be perfectly safe in our large, strong fire-proof Aault, and will be ready for your approval on your return to the city. Quality determines the value of the diamond--not price. Like gold, a diamond has a standard of valuation through quality in color, cutting, perfection and weight. Specks, cracks and other flaws are not visible to the naked eye. This is where confidence in the jeweler's word comes in. Be guided in buying diamonds by the reputation of the store. We have been selling diamonds in Decatur fo t- over half a century. This is a safe store in which to buy diamonds. Our long experience assures fie knowledge of quality. We guarantee every diamond we sell and are always here to make the gu irantee good.
