Walk In the Footsteps of “Saint and Sinners”
The French Quarter Phantom Ghost Tours, 666-8300, FrenchQuarterPhantoms.com
The French Quarter Phantom Ghost Tours has recently launched a new walking tour called “Saints and Sinners,” which claims to show the side of the city where “God and the Devil shook hands so the party could go on.” The tour, for which you have to be 17 or older, spills the “dirty secrets of the city” with stories of witchcraft, voodoo, conspiracy and magic. As with all their tours, the guides are licensed master storytellers, and this new tour has already earned a Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence Award.
New L’Amour Crisscut Diamond at Boudreaux’s
Boudreaux’s Fine Jewelers, 701 Metairie Road, Metairie, 831-2602, BoudreauxsJewelers.com
Boudreaux’s Fine Jewelers, with three locations in Louisiana, which has been owned and managed by the same family since 1933, is carrying the new L’Amour Crisscut diamond, the patented cut of diamonds developed by Christopher Slowinski. The higher number of crisscrossed facets on the diamond increases the brilliance, scintillation and light dispersion of the stone. With 50 facets, the Crisscut sizes 40-50 percent larger than a comparable emerald cut diamond, and offers significant value for its size. The new L’Amour ring has two straight sides and subtle curvatures at the top and bottom for a brilliantly mirrored reflection.
