Finding Great Jewelry

When I started thinking more seriously about heading into the professional realm, I realized that I needed to update my jewelry. I had been wearing fun costume jewelry for years, but it wasn't resonating with the people that I worked with or my clients. It was really frustrating, so I decided to head shopping to update my collection. It was amazing to see how big of a difference a nice new necklace and some conservative earrings made. This website is all about finding great jewelry that fits within your budget and your wardrobe. Check out this blog for more information.

Tips For Wedding Ring Shopping


The big day of your proposal is coming, but you do not know what type of ring that you should get. This is a problem that many individuals experience. Some decide that they will take their future spouse ring shopping at a jewelry store, others want to do it the more traditional way. If you are wondering how to pick a good ring, there are a few things that you should know. This article is going to help you with your quest to buy the perfect ring for your future spouse. 

5 C's Of Diamonds

There are five c's that you should be aware of; carat, clarity, cut, color, and certification. The carat is weight where one carat is the equivalent of 1/5 of a gram. The clarity is the amount or lack of blemishes that are present in the diamond that were not purified during the crystallization process. The cut of the diamond is simply the shape of the diamond and there are a lot of different shapes to choose from. You may have heard of a chocolate diamond, well the color of a diamond is also something that you need to consider. The last C that is important is the certification that comes with each diamond which is referred to by diamond grading laboratories as a grading report. Each of these C's needs to be taken into consideration when buying a diamond. Remember there are a wide range of diamonds that are available on the market, and you can find a beautiful diamond without starting off your marriage with tons of debt. 


Gold was all the rage, and now platinum or white gold is in style. The simple fact of the matter is that you have your pick of precious metals. If you want your proposal to be a surprise ask your future spouse a couple months in advance if she likes a specific ring, and then ask why. She will likely tell you what she does and does not want for her band.


You will no doubt find that there are many beautiful rings available, but do not forget that many different jewelers are going to have the ability to design a custom ring. If your future spouse has shown you a few different rings that she likes, then you can take pictures to the jeweler and ask to make a combination of the ring. Often the jeweler will make a wax mold before making the actual ring. Do not doubt yourself when it comes to customization of the ring, because you do know your future spouse the best.
