Loose Champagne Diamond

Loose Champagne Diamond

Cubic Zirconia (commonly referred to as CZ) is a man-made synthetic gem that is created by scientists in labs. While CZ does occur in the natural environment, the ability to create the gem in labs means that the supply can easily meet the demand of the jewelry market. If you are a jewelry maker or own a jewelry store, you most likely want to buy your cubic zirconia in loose form so that you can make whatever type of jewelry your customers tend to like. Most online wholesalers offer CZ and other synthetic gems in loose form in bulk so that you have the option to make many different pieces of jewelry. If your customers are happier with gems of a different color, do not worry.

There are two different shades of purple cubic zirconia gems: amethyst, lavender and violet. The amethyst CZ is a deeper shade than the lavender. The lavender cubic zirconia is very light lavender, adding just a tint of color to an otherwise white gem. This light, pastel color is very sophisticated and classic. The violet cubic zirconia is a deep shade of blue-purple that many women find complimenting. Many jewelry lovers fall for blue-colored gems, and there are plenty of CZ gems that come in blue shades. The aqua cubic zirconia is a light blue-green color and dates back to 1937, as it can be found in various natural places. This aqua CZ is perfect for summertime. The tanzanite cubic zirconia is a deeper blue shade and, like its aqua counterpart, dates back to 1937. Lastly, the sapphire CZ is rich in color, comparable to royal blue.

It is made from corundum, a material that is virtually indistinguishable from real gems. If your customer prefers shades of yellow, there are two different shades available: champagne and citrine yellow. Champagne cubic zirconia has become very popular in the market, as has the champagne diamond. Its tinge of yellow/brown is subtle yet very classy. The citrine yellow CZ is a brighter yellow and is perfect for those who want to make a statement. If you are in the market for cubic zirconia gems, try one of the colors listed above, or one of the other colors which include: emerald, garnet, padparadschah, peridot, and pink. There is a color and shade to match every customer’s preference! Purchasing loose CZ gems through a wholesale dealer is economically sound and smart.

· Guidelines for Buying Natural Color Diamonds

Diamonds are bought on the basis of the 4 Cs: Cut, Clarity, Carat, and Color. But the value of the natural color diamond usually depends on the rarity of its color than on any of the other 3 Cs, including carat weight. This is because some colors occur in a wide range of sizes and shapes, while others are rare even in the smallest sizes.

Since natural color diamonds come in such a wide range of colors and no two are identical, it is difficult to develop a grading system that can capture the special character of each individual stone. Experts at both the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the International Gemological Institute (IGI) have three parameters by which they describe color for these exquisite diamonds:

· Sunshine in a Stone

Yellow diamonds is cherished for their subtly dramatic appeal. The glow of a yellow stone illuminates a woman with an aura, no matter which shades she chooses.

1. Origin

Light to vivid yellow diamonds are found in different countries, but most large and intense yellow have been discovered in South Africa.

2. Fast Fact

The first diamond ever to be authenticated in Africa was the Eureka, a pale yellow stone weighing 10.7 carats. It was discovered in 1866 by the child of a Boar farmer, in a small hole probably made by a Bushman digging for roots.

· Earthy Beauty

From subtle champagnes to rich cognacs, brown diamonds are the new classic. Their golden tones make them a softer, gentler alternative to the colorless diamond; and their natural color makes the perfect choice for timeless jewelry with a contemporary feel.

1. Origin

Champagnes and cognac diamonds are found throughout southern Africa, Siberia and Australia, where the Argyle Diamond Mine is the worldÂ’s largest producer of these stones.

2. Fast Fact

About $5 billion of champagne and cognac diamond jewelry is sold annually throughout the world, easily making these stones the most accessible of all natural color diamonds.

· Red-Hot Pink

Fashion forward and beguiling, pink diamonds are considered the treasure of treasures. A pink diamond is the ultimate symbol of love, grace and femininity.

1. Origin

Pink diamonds have only been found in a few mines around the world. India, Brazil and Tanzania all produced notable pink diamonds in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, the Argyle mine in northwestern Australia is the only mine in the world to produce a consistent volume of pink diamonds.

2. Fast Fact

A whole year of ArgyleÂ’s intense pink diamond production can be held in the palm of one hand. Once a year, Argyle issues a special release of its finest pink diamonds to an exclusive clientele. These stones are so rare, Argyle must produce 1 million carats of rough diamonds to come up with one carat suitable for sale in this special Tender.

· Glamorous Blue

The powerful color of the sea and the sky meet in these exceptional gems. Blue diamonds are considered extremely rare, and each shade is exquisite.

1. Origin

The Cullinan mine near Pretoria is the worldÂ’s only notable blue diamond producing mine.

2. Fast Fact

The most famous diamond in the world is probably the Hope diamond, an extraordinary deep blue stone of 45.52 carats. It was brought from India to Europe in the 17th century, and sold to King Louis XIV of France. Due to a string of misfortunes surfaced by its subsequent owners, the Hope Diamond became a legendary symbol of bad luck. It is now part of the Smithsonian InstitutionÂ’s National Gem Collection.

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.

V. Montague is a self professed nut over blue diamond jewelry. She scours the internet and the Caribbean for all the latest styles in blue diamond jewelry and other kinds of jewelry. Keep abreast of some the jewelry trends for blue diamond rings. She also has some great ideas for blue diamond engagement rings as well.

April’s birthstone: The diamond. What color is the rarest of them all?

Natural color diamonds are extremely rare that for every one natural color there are 10,000 colorless ones that made the trip to the earths surface…

*Yellow diamonds – are caused by the presence of nitrogen and shade range from very light to vivid canary yellow.
*Blue diamods- the presence of boron will give a blue shade to diamond ranging from deep to blue sky.
*Pink diamonds- are created when tremendous pressure abnormally compresses the diamond structure during its formation in the earth..
Other natural colors include brown,purple,green and orange, but what is the rarest?-so rare in nature that most jewelers and diamond dealers have never seen a natural one before???

Hey oxo_07,

Who wears chocolate diamonds? How about: Phra Bat Somdet Phra Poramintharamaha Bhumibol Adulyadej Mahitalathibet Ramathibodi Chakkrinaruebodin Sayamminthrathirat Borommanatbophit. That is the full title to the King of Thailand (easy for you to say). King Bhumibol (for short) was presented the world’s largest faceted diamond in 1997. The Golden Jubilee, as the stone is called, weighs 545.67 carats. It is officially graded as “fancy yellow-brown”. Chocolate, or champagne diamonds have been worn by royalty and people in authority for centuries. Cardinal Jules Mazarin, the chief minister of France, was a collector of these stones.

Nowadays, check any “red carpet” event and you are likely to see some gorgeous brown jewelry on display from some of the best jewelry designers in the world. Jennifer Lopez wore a combination of shades of champagne and peach diamond earrings to the Academy Awards. Both the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress winners in 2007 wore champagne diamonds. Helen Mirren featured a 62-carat brown and white diamond brooch while Jennefer Hudson wore a champagne diamond on her right hand. Previous Academy Award winner, Hillary Swank, wore a 20-carat champagne diamond in her hair.

It is no exaggeration to say that Hollywood is infatuated with chocolate diamonds. Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Cate Blanchett, Jessica Simpson and Halle Berry have all been seen with dazzling chocolate diamond arrangements. E! reporter, Maria Menounos, captured everyone’s attention wearing a gown embroidered with 2,000 champagne diamonds. A set of gold and champagne diamond earrings were recently worn by Eva Longoria and E! News host, Giuliana Rancic. Singers Kathleen “Bird” York and British pop star Natasha Bedingfield have been seen with champagne earrings and necklaces respectively. The feelings extend across the globe to Japan where the movie star, Mari Natsuki, is a collector of chocolate diamonds.

Everyone, from carriers of the most luxurious high-end jewelry to the local mall retailer, is embracing the hottest jewelry fashion on the planet, champagne or chocolate diamonds. Because of the unique color design options and blending with earth tones, there is room for unlimited design creativity and variation. The affordability of chocolate diamonds allows for price points to be dependent upon the artistry of the design and not just the value of the stones themselves. This creates greater selection and accessibility on the part of purchasers from one end of the economic scale to the other.

Kenner Beckley is driven by the mission statement to “create aha!” and is always looking for spiritual connections in the commonplace. He has a site devoted to the stunning beauty and affordability of brown chocolate diamonds at: http://chocolatediamondsforever.com/

Whats the best way to find out what kind of diamond engagement ring to buy my girlfriend.?

Im making it a big surprise by proposing to her at the cincinnati reds game.

People forget what a jeweler really is.

Don’t propose with a ring. Go to the game, declare your undying love for her, and the cheers from those around you will be the crowing touch on the moment.

Then… go to a jewelers. No, not the kind in the mall. A real live jeweler who does diamonds for a living. He will have a store where you go and sit down at a table. He will ask you how much you have to spend (or tell him ahead of time) and will give you diamonds in your price range. You can pick out the setting together, the diamond together, and he will make up the ring for you.

This is how you begin to get resources for your marriage and future family. This man will become your jeweler. He will be who you trust to clean the ring, to get it checked, the guy you go to when you want to buy a necklace for her first Mother’s Day, the place you go to buy her a 10 year anniversary ring. This is so much better than relying on Jennifer, the girl who works on commission at the mall ring dealer.

You can make it much more than picking out the ring. You can show her your class and style by letting her know you are thinking of her now, and in the future.

Make the appointment with the jeweler on a Saturday. Take your future bride to lunch. Talk about your future together, give her a rose. Then go pick out the ring. It will be a moment you will always treasure.

As a gemstone collector, I can say that I would never, ever even consider buying a diamond from an ebay vendor (especially a foreign vendor) without a GIA certificate. Even then, I’d be hesitant.

There are a lot of frauds selling gemstones on ebay. You may have difficulty making a profit.
