Williston jewelry store gets Hollywood customer

Posted: Updated:
WILLISTON Vt. -

A small, fine-jewelry shop in Williston just got some big exposure from a very big star.

"We know a lot of people getting engaged," said Jayson Argento of Argento Laraine Fine Jewelry.


Designing rings means Argento knows a lot of secrets...people about to pop the question.

But the secret's out now about a ring his wife, Krista, recently designed at their store, Argento Laraine Fine Jewelry.


"It's rose gold and morganite," said Argento.

This stunner is for Hollywood star, Debra Messing.

The Emmy award-winning actress spotted a similar ring that Argento Laraine posted through social media and reached out to the Williston business. She wanted it!


"Somehow Debra Messing found the ring. Loved it. They started talking and then and before you know it she asked Krista to design one for her," said Argento.

So, Argento Laraine got to work designing the ring just for Messing.

Messing's career soared during her hit television show Will and Grace. Since then she's made movies, appeared on other TV shows and miniseries and became a fashion icon with flair for fine jewelry.


And Messing is clearly mad about her latest piece. What she called an early birthday present. The ring was designed right here in Vermont.

She tweeted and Instagramed photos, saying "LOVE it all!!!"


And sent a personal message to the designer saying "OH MY GODDDDDD!!! Soooooo Gorgeous!!!! The ring is spectacular Beyond beyond. Thank you so much. Xxx."


The company wouldn't say what Messing paid for the ring, but since the actress started posting pictures of it online; Argento Laraine has already been contacted by two other actresses, and actor Luis Guzman, who lives in Vermont, shops there too.
