I was adopted as an infant and grew up in New Albany, Indiana. My adopted mother lovingly instilled in me the idea that all things are possible, and the amazing thing about every day is we create it. In this site you will find wonder, imagination, and the secrets to create your own success.

In honor of my adoptive mother and the birth mother I have never known, I established the Why Mom Deserves a Diamondยฎ contest. Every year, thousands of kids submit words of love and appreciation for the chance to win a diamond or other gemstones to give to their moms. Today the contest is in honor of all moms.

I am the author of Moon Over Mountains- the Search for Mom, The Legend of Why Mom Deserves a Diamond, Tales of Imagination- Everything is Real, and many other books.

I am a GIA gemologist and the founder of Gallery of Diamonds jewelers in Orange County, California. If you live far away, you can order my creations from www.GalleryOfDiamonds.com.

If you would like to see the Why Mom Deserves a Diamond contest grow, please join me. There are many ways you can become a contest supporter. Call me at 714-549-2000, or email me at info@galleryofdiamonds.com.

Have a Diamond Day,
Diamond Mike Watson

  3. Thank you for stopping by and following my blog. I’m glad to see you’re still around and still doing the contest. My daughter won a ruby for me when she was 8. She’s now the 15-yr-old known in my blog as Nerdy Girl.

  10. Hello, Diamond Mike. I’ve surfed your blog and I must say, you are a man of many talents. And your self-deprecating humor is endearing. Thanks for dropping by my blog, by the way. My hubby and I are empty nesters. We like to travel, among other things. I started blogging as a way to engage in this discourse around the globe. I hope we’ll keep crossing paths in cyberspace!

  11. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today Mike. So glad you liked “A Splash of Color” and are now following. So impressed with your work. I have several friends who have adopted little ones and friends that are on the wait list for a child. Such an important cause you are working with! Thank you!
