Diamond Band For A Special Someone

Now that you know more about your diamond, you probably wonder how to sell the diamonds without getting scammed. The best thing to do, would be selling your diamond inside the family or to your friends. This works for all jewelry and promises you a safe transaction which relies not only upon the value of your stone, but also on sentimental value and look value of the jewelry.

A ring with a pave setting has smaller diamonds encrusted all around, or sometimes partially around the ring. The ring is literally ‘paved’ with diamonds. The halo setting is when a number of smaller diamonds are set around the circumference of the center stone, thus creating a ‘halo’ effect around the central diamond. Both of these settings with their bordering diamonds allow more light to reflect off the center diamond, making it appear much bigger than it actually is.

Keeping in mind the 4Cs, in my opinion it’s best to look for the best quality cut of diamond as opposed to the best color or clarity. A diamond with an excellent or ideal cut, with excellent symmetry will sparkle more incredibly than a poorly cut, flawless diamond. So what you’re looking for is a balance between the best quality of diamond internally, cut by the best craftsmanship of jeweler.

Diamonds, because of their properties, were lifted high to where they are right now. Many of us may not agree to it, but as time and tradition have it, we can’t just break them. We might find some of them funny, but taking a closer look at it, they have come to appreciate the gem the way they believed it to be–indestructible. They were made symbols of almost everything.

Choosing an engagement ring requires more than knowledge of the 4 Cs. Perhaps even more importantly is the preference of the intended recipient. Most women will look at hundreds of rings in catalogs, magazines and jewelry stores before deciding which style is perfect. Some women prefer other precious gemstones and opt for emeralds, sapphires, rubies, or some other favorite gem. Part of the process of selecting which ring to buy is determining which ones are the most appealing to HER.

If you are looking for an unique and fancy cut diamond, the most unique form to choose from is the heart shaped diamond. This shape certainly stands out from other popular diamond settings. Living up to its name, the heart diamond has become synonymous with love and affection, making it an excellent choice for an anniversary ring or a wedding ring alternatives.

Ashley and Chris discuss the fact that there is a lot she wants to say that she really can’t divulge yet while the show is still airing. Chris jokes that most of what she’d like to say about Bentley can’t be said on tv anyway, and she laughs as she agrees. Hebert shares that watching all of Bentley’s antics so far this season on The Bachelorette has been really hard and very humiliating. She says she took Michelle Money’s warning with a grain of salt, and based her opinion on him on what she saw personally. She readily admits now that she completely misjudged Williams and she is paying the price with her humiliation.

Platinum, like gold, is marked by its purity. The US Federal Trade Commission, or FTC, distinguishes the amount of pure platinum in parts per thousand. Any piece of jewelry that is marked at least 950 parts per thousand of pure platinum is allowed to be called “platinum.” If the piece of jewelry only contains 850 or 900 parts, it will be marked with a “Plat” or “Pt.” If the other “part” of mixed metals is at least 500 parts per thousand, it will also be indicated on the piece.
