Dear Alvaro and Caroline,FINALLY,  I opened Cheryl’s special gifts. The earrings display a first- time gift for a young bride to embrace and show after 50 years have swiftly gone by. Majestically her wedding confetti has turned to Gold. A stoke of genius has hammered the shards of her wedding ring into perfect, majestic confetti which showered down upon her and her groom. Wasn’t it just yesterday?

Around her Princess neck a special memento, gift, treasure will adorn her multiple layers of significant, unique and splendid memories which reach from the past, transcend time, and glow in the present. They are THE PRESENT… special, tender, sacred, meaningful. All made possible by the groom and a posse of gifted, insightful, and compassionate, Angels.I Salute you in your passion, generosity, focus, perception and creative genius.This more than art. This is life, passion, love and cosmic genius.And so I shall say.Good Night.

3/22/2016 – Caroline and Alvaro,

I want you two to know I am falling in love with this ring more and more every time I look at it. I can’t stop pulling it out of the box and staring in amazement at the craftsmanship and design. Words won’t be able to describe Margaret’s reaction when she sees it, I am absolutely certain.

From the start, I knew that the creation of this ring had to be an artistic and painstaking process and one that transcended just the diamond. I didn’t ever want to doubt in my mind that the creator of this ring didn’t work hard and imaginatively to execute something special. As a layman with no idea about this process, I never imagined that I would find someone to accomplish that. You all completely took me by surprise and I can’t describe how fortunate and lucky I am to have found you. The fact that Alvaro needed to tear it down and rebuild it immediately reminded me of all of the times I’ve done that for something I’ve made for Margaret for no other reason but that it simply had to be done. That having transpired during the making of this ring was truly special to me and I will always be thankful for your refusal to sacrifice your artistic integrity, for I was the beneficiary.

I can’t wait to get back and talk about the wedding band and I can’t wait for you to meet the wearer of your creation. It is without question a special piece. I hope your new plant friends bring you many seasons of joy.

Thanks again and much love,

Chris Epes

P.S. I’ve already handed out all of the cards that you gave me.

December 30, 2016 at 11:42pm -I’ve be meaning to write this for some time but time flies when you have youngins. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my home town, Ashland VA. I love it for many reasons but one in particular would be the local stores and their owners. Ashland has some amazing businesses and I consider several of the owners good friends. Alvaro and Caroline Coronado are two of my favorite Ashland business owners and people. I have known them for many years and they have always been so loving and lively. Recently I was in a bind because I was going to a black tie wedding and I needed batteries for my nicer watches, that I never wear. I needed the batteries the next day, a Sunday. I reached out through a FB post to get suggestions. Caroline responded and the rest is a story I’ll be telling for years to come. The Coronados came to my rescue in spectacular fashion. Through several PMs we coordinated a last minute drop off/pickup (they were out running errands and headed back to their office to help me). I had decided the watches I had weren’t really tux worthy anyway. When I told Caroline this she immediately offered to let me borrow one of Alvaro’s fancy watches. The perfect finishing touch. The next day Alvaro had repaired three of my watches and made them beautiful again. I found out later that this was an extremely busy time for them and they fit me into their already overbooked schedule. I am very grateful and pleased with Alvaro, Caroline and Alvaro Coronado Inc and I am so glad they chose my hometown for their business.
