"We are celebrating the strength of that pledge by having couples rededicate themselves to their partner. At the same time, we intend to surpass the Guinness World Records 1,087 couples record."

"The Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel provides an extraordinary romantic backdrop and atmosphere for married couples to enjoy such an important moment in their relationship," said Milstein. "We couldn't be more delighted to make this happen for so many couples which is why I came up with the idea."

Milstein, a Graduate Gemologist GIA), is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Wyatt Austin Jewelers owned and operated by her and her late husband, Jeff Milstein. The company, whose slogan is "Making Jewelry Dreams Come True," fulfills the needs of its clients, especially brides' quest for the perfect diamond engagement ring.

Milstein is one of a few jewelers in the Chicago area with state-of-the-art CAD-CAM equipment that helps create a computerized, custom, virtual ring – the "perfect ring" – costing from hundreds of dollars to six figures.

Milstein also gives back to the community via various local and regional organizations that help those in need. She said she continues to achieve the level of strong ethical standards, expertise and recognition that few independent jewelers accomplish.

The Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel, located at the intersection of Thoreau Drive and Meacham Road just north of the Jane Addams Tollway, offers 48,000 square feet of event space dripping in Swarovski crystal chandeliers and natural light. It hosts both grand receptions and intimate gatherings.
