Our deepest condolences. A dear friend of my parents, who bought nearly every piece of jewelry from him. I also spent time talking to him and getting an anniversary band from him. A kind man, my dad will definitely miss him. Praying for him and your family. The Qazi family.

Al designed my grandparents wedding rings, my parents wedding rings (among other jewelry) and I knew when I got married I wanted him to design my rings.
