In addition to our “Brick and Mortar” store in Fairfield our web site is continuing that tradition.

Our name comes from the famous text of the sage Adi Shankara translated as “The Crest Jewel of Discrimination” in which he asked and answered the eternal question:

   “What is the most important thing?” 

“A gift given at the right time.”
