Our final Angel Wing Winner

Our final Angel Wing Winner.  Congratulations Barbara Vosbrink!

I am lucky to have three angels in my life. I have my girls Jessica(18), Brittney(11) and Kimberly(5). They are the reason why I smile!!  Sometimes they test me to see how far they can go. But in the end we always talk and laugh.  I have a very good relationship with all of them. A different relationship for each of them cause of such an age difference.  I like to think that they can come to me with anything. I know they have already and I am grateful for that. But most of all they make me feel special when all they have to do is give a hug and a kiss and they say they love me and I know I'm doing something right. I am so blessed to have all three of them.

We'd Like to Share with You...

We recently received a letter from a customer in the military.  We would like to share it with you.  We are proud of it.


I just received the ring. It is absolutely gorgeous!!!! I love it and I am sure my wife will. The craftsmanship and detail is superb. Thank you so much for your excellent work and customer service. You and your team really do shine as much as the diamond ring you made.

Week 6 Angel Wing Winner.

Here is the week 6 winning entry.  Congratulations Danielle DeBiase!

My Angel story is not about 1 but 2 beautiful Angels in my life. This is the first
Christmas without both of my grandmother's who I know are in heaven looking
down on all of us and smiling as we all share in this wonderful Holiday.

My Grandmother's Elsa & Anita where two of the most amazing, wondeful people you could have ever met. Always looking thier best, always with a smile on thier face. In
my heart I know when the sun is out shining it's them smiling down on me.

From teaching me how to make all kinds of yummy dishes to sitting around playing cards.
My grandmother's where always there either to have some fun with or lend an ear. They
gave me advice that made me the strong women I am today. I was blessed to have these two ladies in my life and so were all the people that knew them. They cared so much for others and for thier families. T…

Week 5 Angel Wing Contest Winner!

Here is the week 5 Angel Wing contest winner! Congratulations Maggie Mignone!

My mother is my best friend and will always be my beautiful angel. She has always carried me through the toughest times in my life. She supported me through each & every difficult decision I have ever had to make. She has shared my tears of joy and sadness. Her tender voice and warm embrace have kept me grounded & focused on the mother that I want to be. A few years ago I had the biggest scare of my life. My mother was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. At that moment our lives began to change. Our roles of mother & daughter were reversed. I began carrying her through the toughest time in her life. I supported her through each difficult decision regarding medical treatment. I wiped her tears and kept mine hidden. My voice became the sound of hope. My warm embraces kept her focused on a brighter tomorrow. Her strength and courage through it all …

Happy Thanksgiving!

What exactly do you think of when you hear the word Thanksgiving?  Do you think of your Mom's famous Thanksgiving dinner?  Do you think of your children devouring every bit of pumpkin pie?  Maybe you think of the mob of people lined up to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
No matter what thoughts Thanksgiving conjures up, we never forget one thing; how very thankful we are for all that we have, all that we are, and all we can do.  The most important thing we can do is remember to be thankful for our dearest family and friends, and everyone who has touched our lives this year.
All of us at Corbo Jewelers would like to wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.
Steve Corbo

Week 3 Angel Wings Winner

Here is the week 3 winning entry! Congratulations Nikki Kelly!


Is There An Angel In Your Life? Yes, there is truly an angel in my life. I do not see him every day, nor do we share words or hugs. He is keeping a promise he made to me, as well as checking in to reassure me that he is fine. My angel is my beloved late father. Prior to his death, he and I made a pact. He had been tragically ill for six years, but he cheated death many, many times during those horrid years. I asked him if we could make a deal that whichever one of us died first, the other would receive a sign, if possible, that he/she was okay. He said yes. And it was possible, because he came to me numerous times. My father, unseen but felt, let me know of his presence via the scent of his Dove soap, the masculine scent of his Polo cologne, the weight on the edge of the bed when I woke that almost caused me to roll off. His visits came at unexpect…

Week 2 Angel Wings Winner

Here is our week 2 winner!  Congratulations Nicole Davis!

There has been an angel in my life for the past 25 years.  She's my best friend.  We first met in 4th grade, back then times were a bit tougher for us because I was the "new girl" in school even though everyone there knew me, I had spent the past two years in a private school.  Most everyone else shunned me because they felt that I was a snob & invading their space.  No one really wanted to reach out to me as the new girl OR as the daughter of a pretty strict teacher that had quite the reputation in our small town.  Becky never was one to stay "inside the box" and she reached out to me.  We made fast friends.  We made it through the "hard times" of pre-pubescence and when we were in 9th grade her family moved to Texas from our small town in Alabama.  In 1989 Texas was a WORLD away f…

Is There An Angel in Your Life WINNER!

Here is our first winning entry. Congratulations Becci Erickson.

There is an angel in my life & I'm lucky to be married to him.  My husband is my best friend & he supports me in everything I do.  Lately life has been very hard for us...he's been unemployed for two years, started & runs his own furniture making business (which isn't making anything right now in this economy), he does my dishes & laundry while I'm at the office.  He takes care of me every day in countless ways...and I can never find enough words to say thank you.  We are moving soon so that he can find a job...but no matter what happens he's my angel every single minute of the day with his smile & patience & love.  I am so blessed to have this angel close to hold me when I need it the most. Becci Erickson There will be a new winner each week until Christmas! Send your entries to Good luck!

Where Did it All Start?

From Naples, Italy in 1898, the Corbo Family has been selling and servicing fine jewelry for their many friends and customers. At the turn of the century Alfonso Corbo took his wife and eight children from their home in Naples to America, settling in Newark NJ. A watchmaker by trade, Alfonso went door-to-door selling his wares and skills to start the tradition of Corbo Jewelers in America.
Six of Alfonso's eight children continued the tradition. Sons Mike, Dick, and Nick chose different parts of Bergen, Passaic, and Essex counties- going door-to-door and selling their wares and making friends along the way. In 1918 the daughters; Julia, Mae, and Pep opened the first store on Warren ST. in Newark, later moving to Bloomfield in 1945.
In 1950, Michael's son Alan joined Corbo Jewelers, and they opened their second store in Clifton. During the 60's and 70's, Alan's brothers, Tony and Mike Jr., came aboard and Corbo Jewelers continued to grow. Stores were o…
