Hello, darling! I’m glad you’re here.
I’m Becky Stone, the lady behind all the books and bling. I’m a life-long jewelry lover and a professional Writer and Editor with a passion for all things written and/or bejeweled.
I started Diamonds in the Library in 2013 and made it my full time job in 2015. Now I spend my days writing about jewelry here and for Instore Magazine, as well as working with private jewelry clients to craft the perfect written materials for their brands’ needs.
I love all kinds of jewelry, from inexpensive costume pieces to cutting edge haute couture, both vintage treasures and cutting edge contemporary creations. I’m an enthusiastic supporter of diversity in the jewelry industry and I’m always interested in ways to support Black & BIPOC creators and showcase brands and stores who feature diverse models in their editorial photography.
I also believe that jewelry should be sustainable and created using responsible practices whenever possible: we need to care of our world and each other while making our art.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel the country and the world seeing extraordinary jewelry, visiting some of the finest stores and designers in the world, from New York City to Paris Fashion Week to the legendary industry-only trade shows of Las Vegas jewelry week, and it is my greatest joy to share that jewelry with other people who will love it as much as I do.
If it’s your first time here, you might want to check out some of my all-time hits, like How to take Great Jewelry Photos with your Phone, How to Pack Jewelry for a Move, my series of jewelry under $300, or the time I tried on Marie Antoinette’s jewelry.
