When Valentine’s Day rolls around it can be tempting to just grab some chocolates or jewellery from the nearest big name department store. But there are benefits to shopping locally — it strengthens Victoria’s economy while keeping our communities healthy and happy. Here’s a list of some of our favourite ~*~romantic~*~ local offerings.
Pristine Gemstone’s website is sparkling with images of their beautiful jewelry and gemstones, available through their online store. Rogerio Graca, gemcutter and wholesaler of 20 years, offers wholesale loose gemstones and finished jewelry to the public.
What would Valentine’s Day be without a little bit of flash and glam? Pristine Gemstones offers a wide selection of gemstones and jewelry, either pre-made or custom sculpted to order. Shop online or give them a call at 250-661-0967 to arrange a viewing.

(Pristine’s selection doesn’t carry quite what you’re looking for? Try Fortner custom jewelry or Susan Koch’s beach glass collection.)

Vanessa and I recently went for a short trip to Mexico to visit her parents. They have a condo in Ixtapa on the west coast. Great weather and relaxation was just what I needed after my mountain bike accident, so this little 10 day trip could not have come at a better time. Part of every trip includes a day out on the water in search of Big Game fish. This year we hired the same boat and crew that we had two years ago when I caught a nice big sail fish. This year was no different with Jose and Armando duplicating the feat of hooking me into a 100lb sailfish again.
Armando with the fish, Dan with the glory
