Elegant Diamond Pendant

Okay, so you’ve got this special occasion coming up such as a birthday, anniversary, or Christmas and you want to get the special lady in your life a gift she will absolutely love. What are you going to get her? Your thought to buy Diamond Pendant Jewelry is always an excellent idea.

So you go to the store looking for the ideal necklace. The sales clerk walks you over to the jewelry case and shows you the selection. All of the designs look like great options but the prices range from $99 to over $900.

Question…which one are you going to choose? Which one is going to be the perfect choice based on design, quality, and price? Do you know what the characteristics are of high quality diamonds? How about the precious metal casing the diamonds are housed in? If it comes with a necklace, what makes for the most desirable chain?

These are valid questions. And obviously the answers to those questions not only impact the price you pay for the diamond pendant jewelry but they also play a huge role in the jewelry you choose.

So to help you find the perfect piece of jewelry for your special girl AND your pocket book, here are 3 things you can look for in finding high quality diamond pendant jewelry.

  • Determine diamond quality – first you need to know about the 4 Cs of diamonds. They are cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. The great thing is that you don’t have to be a gemologist to know what to the quality of a diamond is in a piece of diamond pendant jewelry. Simply look for the descriptions of each of the Cs. For example, you want a “good” cut stone. The color is best when graded as D-F and diminishes in quality from there. A best quality clarity grade is F. That level decreases with an IF, VVS1, VVS2, and so on. For diamond pendant jewelry, a grade of I1, I2, and I3 still works well since flaws are not easily seen. And carat weight is based on your preference for diamond size. Understanding that one carat is a pretty good sized rock, .20 carats and above are notable sizes as well.
  • Precious metal encasing the gemstones — themost common precious metals are gold, silver, and platinum. All three in their purest state are soft metals for practical use and are mixed with other metals to add strength and allow for easier shaping for jewelry design. The grades of these metals are based on their part of the whole metal content using a 1,000 point scale. For gold, 24k equals 100%. From there 18k equals 75%, 14k equals 58%, and so on. Pure platinum is 950 parts per 1,000. The grade reduces as the parts decrease. And pure silver requires a minimum of 925 parts per thousand of the jewelry content. As I’m sure you know, the price of the metal will decrease as the grade decreases. Of the three metals, platinum is naturally the most expensive.
  • Necklace quality features — for the necklace you simply want to make sure that the design or cut of the chain is complimentary to the diamond pendant. Make sure the metal type and grade of the chain is the same as the metal type and grade of the pendant. The length of the chain should be considered for display of the pendant as well. And the clasp on the chain is important too with the lobster claw being a fan favorite.

With these three thoughts in mind, you are sure to choose the perfect diamond pendant jewelry for the woman you love. And you can make the decision knowing you got the best quality for the money you spent.

Here is an option for diamond pendant jewelry that many women have found to be elegant, classy, and very affordable. Plus, its design and quality represents today’s fashion taste. View for yourself this Diamond Floating Heart Pendant and see if it’s not the perfect choice for your special lady.

The colors of the gemstones are what make them look so dazzling and alluring. The most dazzling gemstones are the precious stones. Emeralds, rubies and sapphires are known primarily for their bright green, red and blue colors. While sapphire is also available in colors like pink, green and yellow. Nevertheless, all gemstones have beautiful colors, which increase their exquisiteness. For instance, pearls are white, pink, red, aquamarine is bluish green, amethyst is purple, garnets are green, red, purple, and topaz is yellow and orange in color. Gems also come in different shades of colors, like blue, green or red.

You can choose your gemstone according to the color you like. The deepest or richest colors are the most valuable and expensive stones. Emeralds have different shades of green, but the most popular shade is the bluish green, which is the richest color. Sapphires too are found in pink, green, yellow and different shades of blue. However, the rich blue color is the most valuable and popular stone. Rubies are also found in different shades of red, while the color known, as “pigeon’s blood” is the darkest and richest red available, which is very powerful. This deep red ruby is mined only in Myanmar.

When precious stones are found in mines, they do not look as attractive as they should be. Stones are usually polished, carved and cut into different shapes and sizes for it to acquire its beauty. According to the polish of the stone, the value increases.

It is a common notion that the deeper and richer the color of the stone, the more precious and valuable it is. For instance, bright white pearls, green garnets, royal purple amethysts, yellow topaz, deep red corals are the most precious and valuable gem stones existing. A lighter colored gemstone, like a light green garnet isn’t as precious as a parrot green garnet.

It is very difficult to obtain the richest color of a stone, as they are very rare. Thus most of the people settle with lighter colors, as they are easily available and very affordable. These days, people prefer a lighter garnet, or a lighter purple amethyst, as it is next to impossible to afford or find the “perfect” green or purple. As long as the gemstone is powerful and attractive people are content.

However, it is strange that diamond, which is the most expensive and exquisite gemstone, is valued by how colorless it is. Diamonds are rated according to their shine, and neutral color. If the diamond is white or pale pink, it is regarded as a low grade diamond. But if the diamond is known as a pink diamond, or a canary diamond then it is considered worthy. The most high priced diamonds are oddly, colorless.

Sapphire and Diamonds… What matches best?

I’m trying to find the best combination necklace & earrings for my wife. But I cant decide at all on what will match the best, and I know next to nothing about how to properly match jewelery, etc… At first I wanted to go with a sapphire necklace and matching sapphire earrings, but I thought that if she was going to wear a sapphire necklace that it should be the focal point, and the earrings should be more-so something like diamonds. So, out of the three option below, which seems like the best match?

1. Sapphire necklace, with two small diamond rounds and sapphire earrings of the same design.

2. Sapphire necklace, with small accent diamonds and diamond stud earrings.

3. Solitaire diamond necklace and sapphire earrings.(I have no idea if this even matches, but it’s an option I’m considering.)

Thank you for any and all help!

I would suggest that you go to a jewelry store and consult with them. They can show you matched sets or individual pieces that would compliment each other.

Personally, I would prefer a necklace with earrings of the same design. The earrings are usually smaller, but take one or two elements from the necklace.

I have a necklace and earrings set that my husband bought me. The earrings and necklace complement each other because the design matches, but the necklace is still the focal point.

Would it be offensive to melt down an ex’s diamond necklace to use for our engagement ring?

I have a diamond necklace from an ex I never got around to selling. I am having a hard time knowing what to say about what I want as far as engagement rings go, and although I want something beautiful I don’t want my husband to be to spend too much on it you know? Its hard because I want both. But anyway, would it be wrong to suggest this as an idea to make the ring more affordable but still pretty? The necklace has 3 good size diamonds and 6 diamond bezel things. I am pretty sure my ex got it at a pawn shop!
I just realized its probably ridiculous to even think of that. I will just have to find something I like that doesn’t cost too much! lol…

Thats weird and creepy. I dont care how much it saves you. Are you really going to suggest this to your bf? Omg, id be so mad if my husband suggested that. I’d rather go ringless than wear a tainted one.

color changingg diamond?

i have this 35 point vs 1 diamond but i dont nkow what the color is even the jewelers i took it to didnt know right know it looks like a very faint yellow color and in other lights its dark champagne color other times it has a very faint pinkish look to it right know at this veryt moment it looks like a q color diamond but in the dark it look schampagnish and dark yellowish could this be a color changing diamond or some oother rare type of diamond?

No, the color of the diamond does not change. There are very very few diamonds that are “pure white” or colorless. They can come in many different colors and are due to the chemical impurities embedded in the diamond or structural defects in the stone.

A diamond is a crystal and will absorb and reflect different kinds of light differently much like stain glass giving you the illusion that the stone itself changes color. It is best to look at a diamond under regular sun light because even florescent light comes with different tints. The stone has a reflective index almost like our finger print that is unique from other crystals or precious gems. Shine a beam of light through and it will bend the light at a specific angle. Take you stone to the jeweler and see if they have a machine.

Cut Antique Diamond

Looking for info on antique diamond ring….?

I have come across a beautiful ring that is dated to the 1800′s. It is the original platinum setting and the original diamond, it has never been altered. The diamond is around 1.3 carats and is European cut (that indicates it was cut before 1908) and has diamond detail going down the band. It is very intricate and definitely hand made. The number ’23′ is hand carved on the interior band- I’m told this is the signature of the original jeweler. Does anyone have any information on this jeweler or, more importantly, a reasonable market price for an item like this??

I don’t know, but this site may be able to help

Three stone diamond rings became the next big diamond promotion item for De Beers after diamond bracelets were all the rage back in the 80s and became known as tennis bracelets ever since Chris Evert Lloyd lost hers on a tennis court while playing a championship match. The match was stopped and did not re-start till she had found her bracelet with the help of some of the ball boys. Since then diamond bracelets became known as tennis bracelets and kicked off a worldwide trend in diamond jewelry popularity. De beers’ success with creating another diamond marketing sensation like the venerable tennis bracelet came in the form of the 3 stone diamond ring. This style of diamond ring began very slowly but soon became very popular in the 90s and many women got their first taste of larger diamonds through this style of ring.

Every time diamond jewelry manufacturers felt that the 3 stone ring was on its last legs in the jewelry market along came a new style or look that re-popularized this ring style format. The popularity of yellow diamonds as center stones for engagement rings translated to the three stone ring and soon every woman who already had a 3 stone white diamond ring now wanted one with a mix of yellow and white diamonds. The more popular style was with the canary yellow larger center diamond flanked by smaller matched white diamonds on the sides. We are now at the end of the first decade of the second millennium and blue diamonds have now revitalized the 3 stone diamond finger ring not to mention the many blue diamond engagement styles of ring that you see on young women nowadays.

Rings designed with blue diamonds continue to be popular with women as anniversary gifts and even as engagement rings in lieu of the traditional solitaire diamond ring. Because blue diamonds cost as little as a third to a half of the cost of white diamonds their inclusion in a 3 stone anniversary ring brings down the selling price substantially. This makes it a jewelry style that is readily affordable, beautiful and still qualifies as diamond jewelry. The 3 stone diamond ring continues to be a hot seller because of its simplicity, beauty, range of styles, and its continuance as a classic style of diamond rings steeped in tradition and meaning. The use of blue diamonds has made the style more popular and more available to women of all backgrounds.

Keep abreast of some the jewelry trends for blue diamond rings. She also has some great ideas for blue diamond engagement rings as well.

As we are all (hopefully!) aware we have a physical body. We also have an energy body. This energy body is sometimes called an aura. In our energy body we have seven main energy centres or Chakras.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word literally meaning wheel or circle. In a deeper sense the word describes whirlpools or vortex like wheels of energy located along the central axis (spine) of our bodies.

Chakras have been known about for thousands of years they are mentioned in both ancient Chinese, and Ayurvedic medicine. It is thought that a blockage in one particular chakra can manifest as physical illness if it were to remain untreated.

Each Chakra resonates with a certain energy vibration, this correlates with a particular colour, sound wave, or perfume. If a Chakra is out of balance it requires re-balancing and healing with an energy, whether that be Reiki, Colour Therapy, Crystal Therapy, Aromatherapy, or Music, or indeed combination of the above.

For example a chakra blockage could be treated with the following;

Crown Chakra, Colour – White, Crystal – Quartz, Aroma – Lavender, Sound – Note B.

Third Eye Chakra, Colour – Indigo, Crystal – Amethyst, Aroma – Basil, Sound – Note A.

Throat Chakra, Colour – Blue, Crystal – Blue Lace Agate, Aroma – Chamomile, Sound – Note G.

Heart Chakra, Colour – Green, Crystal – Aventurine, Aroma – Rose, Sound – Note F.

Solar PLexus Chakra, Colour – Yellow, Crystal – Citrine, Aroma – Peppermint, Sound – Note E.

Sacral Chakra, Colour – Orange, Crystal – Carnelian, Aroma – Jasmine, Sound – Note D.

Base Chakra, Colour – Red, Crystal – Obsidian, Aroma – Frankincense, Sound – Note C.

The above list is by no means exhaustive.

There are many ways to become in tune with your Chakras, to know when they are balanced, or require healing. Again one of the most effective ways is by visualisation.

In a quiet room, where you will not be disturbed, carry out your grounding and protection routine. Once that is complete sit somewhere comfortable with your feet firmly on the floor, and close your eyes.

Imagine energy rising up from your feet into your Base Chakra. Once it is there see your Base Chakra as a red flower. Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Move the energy up from your Base Chakra to your Sacral Chakra. Once it is there see your Sacral Chakra as an orange flower. Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Move the energy up from your Sacral Chakra to your Solar Plexus Chakra. Once it is there see your Solar Plexus as a yellow flower. Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Move the energy up from your Solar Plexus to your Heart Chakra. Once it is there see your heart chakra as a green flower. Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Move the energy up from your Heart Chakra to your Throat Chakra. Once it is there see your Throat Chakra as a blue flower.

Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Move the energy up from your Throat Chakra to your Third Eye. Once it is there see your third eye as a purple flower. Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Move the energy up from your third eye to your Crown Chakra. Once it is there see your Crown Chakra as a pure white flower. Watch this flower opening in your minds eye. How does this flower feel? How does it open?

Once this process is completed and you feel happy to do so, begin at your crown chakra and slowly close all the petals of the flower and repeat each process as you move down the chakras to ensure that your chakras are now closed and safe. If chakras were to remain constantly open all the time, they may become un-protected, this can result in feeling lethargic and tired. Once you have completed the process make a note in your logbook about how you felt, anything you noticed?

Chakras are integral to any form of psychic work, from healing right through to doing a reading. Your Chakras need to be clear, and your energy needs to be working freely in order for you to help others either by healing, or any other type of energy work. If blockages remain these can adversely affect your performance in whichever activity you choose to undertake.
