Diamond Ladies Wedding

Diamond Ladies Wedding

If you are planning your wedding, you know how much work and preparation is involved with creating the perfect ceremony and reception. Choosing your wedding bands should be one of the most pleasant and fulfilling parts of getting ready for the big day.

You may have considered choosing a handcrafted Celtic wedding ring that serves as a connection to your past. If your ancestry is Irish, Scottish, or Welsh, you will enjoy wearing the ancient symbols of the Celtic people at such a special time.

If your bride or groom-to-be is also interested in Celtic jewelry, choosing matching wedding bands can add a lot of style and elegance to your wedding outfits and to your wedding day photos. As well, the truly timeless beauty of the distinctive symbols found on today’s Celtic wedding bands will bestow your rings with deeper meaning and value.

It’s not too difficult to find a matched set of Celtic wedding rings once you’ve decided on a style that works for both of you. There are many fine options for matched sets, including Trinity Love Knot bands, which feature delicate, three-pointed figures crafted in the style of traditional Celtic interlace (knot work). There are also wedding bands that feature warrior symbols that were first discovered on the sixth century Ardagh Chalice. You can also enjoy the whimsical, romantic charm of Irish Claddagh Rings, which feature two tiny hands, clasping a crowned heart.

Celtic wedding rings come in a variety of finishes and style. You can find sleek, sophisticated pieces that have a subtle richness, or select bolder, more individual styles that are unique and unforgettable. Precious metals such as white and yellow gold may be combined with the pinkish glow of rose gold for a dimensional effect.

Sometimes these wedding bands feature the addition of gemstones, such as diamonds, emeralds or rubies. Choosing rings with tiny pave diamonds can add a lot of richness and glitter to even the simplest band. Emeralds are rare and precious, and they evoke the beauty of Ireland. Rubies are an enduring symbol of passion, and they have represented love for centuries.

For the budget-conscious shopper, silver Celtic wedding rings can provide a white-gold look for an affordable price. Since the artisans who craft the rings spend years learning how to recreate the ancient symbols, they offer heirloom quality and exceptional beauty, no matter what material they are made with.

Once you’ve chosen the perfect bands for you and your partner, you might want to consider adding some other Celtic touches to your wedding day. There are many ways to honor the spirit of your ancestors when you get married. Consider pretty wedding invitations that feature borders of delicate interlace, or perhaps an ornate shamrock in ivy green and gold. For the ceremony, there are many wonderful traditions you can call upon. Irish blessings and Celtic music and dancing are lovely ways to get in touch with the rituals of the past.

Finding the perfect matched set of Celtic wedding rings can be an exciting journey through the cultural history of the Celts. It can also be a memorable way to show your love for one another.

Enhanced Diamond Engagement

Enhanced Diamond Engagement
Question about my engagement ring? What would you do…?

Ok, I first had a solitaire ring that I got from my fiance when he proposed. Well recently he bought me an enhancer to add more diamonds to it. I’ve been wearing this for a few days. Well, I’ve been reading that the enhancer should be used as the wedding band. I just thought the enhancer was to enhance the engagement ring. So, if I buy a separate wedding band, I want it to be just a plain thin simple one because I don’t want that much bling, but I don’t know.

So I guess my question is.. would you just use the enhancer as the wedding band when getting when getting married? (considering I’ve already been wearing the enhancer) OR get a seperate plain wedding band?

Two options.

1) I think you posted some pictures when you asked this the other day and they were really hard to see. It would help if we could see pics.

With my ring:

I’m getting one of these:

http://www.helzberg.com/product/engagement+%26+wedding/diamond+wedding+bands/1-2ct+tw+round+diamond+ring+1674478.do?sortby=priceAscend

And I’ll use one of them as my engagement ring and then I will probably ask for a second one for our one year anniversary.

That’s why I ask for a picture. Is the enhancer something that you could add a second one? So it would be enhancer – engagement ring – enhancer.

Then, you could wear the one you have now and have a second one as your wedding band.

2) You could just take off the enhancer for now and use it as your wedding band. Then you don’t have to spend any more money!

Good luck!

how gold and diamond jeweleries are priced for 18K yellow and white hand crafted items?

Actually the pricing principles are different from one to another. Several factors would be taken into consideration, 1. the price of mental or diamond on international market, which the main cost of a jewelry piece; 2 the cost of craft work, varied in different nations as some have cheap labor cost; 3 Other cost incurred when making these jewelry pieces; 4, the setting prices of other brands or stores, most sellers will compare other jewelry’s and then set price.

Did we get my engagement ring for a good price?

I’d like to know from people who have either bought or investigated engagement rings and prices, if you think we got a good price for mine. My ring is a princess cut, on a white gold cathedral setting, with pave diamonds on all 4 sides. The center stone is .73 ct. I color, I1, (it’s a fairly good I1) and the diamonds on the ring are .5 ct. The diamond is about $2000, and the ring about $1500. The total price is around $3500.
Thank you so much for your input. It’s bad to second-guess, so I really appreciate you guys humoring me. The fact is, I’m in love with my ring almost as much as I love my man. And what’s special about it is that we picked it out together.

Plus he wants to upgrade my diamond every few years, and the place we got it from offers 100% trade in value, in addition to life-time warranty for the ring.

Thanks again.

The only way to know is to take it to another jeweler and get a rough estimate of the price. Don’t give him any information. Or, get an appraisal by the company that sold you the diamond or someone independent. That will cost some money.

The ring sounds beautiful. It’s value is in how much you love it and the love between you and your fiance’.

Good websites to purchase diamond earrings?

Looking to purchase princess cut diamond earrings online. Whats a good website with a decent price?

Don’t look for cheap though, cause you’ll get what you pay for. And, the whole point of buying diamonds is that they are expensive. But whatever you get, be sure to take it for appraisal to make sure that it is real, and worth as much as you payed.

Loose Diamond Ring

What is the best way to go about buying a loose diamond for an engagement ring you already own?

My boyfriend was given a ring that belonged to his stepfather’s late wife. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but the stone was removed. We are working together to become engaged, and we want to find a diamond together. Where do we start with all the appraisals, rock shopping, resizing, etc?

When buying a loose diamond only buy certified diamonds. GIA, ASG, DCLA are good labs, EGL and a few others are a bit dodgy (not as accurate/specific)…
First thing for you to do is get some education on diamonds and what all the acronims mean and what is decent quality for which cut.
Long story short I suggest you go for:
Colour: D – G anything after that is faint yellow and will not hold its value as well.
Clarity: Flawless – Slightly Included 1 for most cuts (round brilliant, princess, cushion) Or flawless to Very Slightly included 2 for more open fancy cuts such as the emerald or baguette
Cut: Find out what the dimention angles and percentages for the specific cut shape you are going for and compare them to the Certification dimentions. This links tells you what they are for which cuts. Depth and table are the most important
Round http://diamonds.pricescope.com/round.asp
Princess http://diamonds.pricescope.com/fnc1.asp
Emerald http://diamonds.pricescope.com/fnc2.asp
Heart, pear etc http://diamonds.pricescope.com/fnc3.asp
Dark bands or triangles show areas where light is leaking from the diamond.
When choosing the cut always go for the one you like to look at, thats the most important part after all.

I then suggest you go to a reputable private jeweller and ask if they sell loose stones (most do). You tell them what you want and they do the leg work. They will order the stones in for you to see, you should not pay any money at all to the jewellers just to see the stones (some try to scam you like that, it doesn’t cost them more than a few $ to get them in). Always look at 2 or 3 stones next to each other so you can compare.
Get the details and compare the prices online (which are retail prices despite them saying things like “wholesale direct to public”), remember that shops do have overheads though and they will be slightly more expensive, but 200% additional or more is ridiculous (I have seen heaps of jewellers do this). Do your research and go with your gut on whether it seems to much for the size and quality.

You will also have to take the setting in with you as they really can’t be altered all that much, you will have to go with a stone close to the size it was already set with, with a little leeway bigger or smaller.

It is also a good idea to go to many different jewellers for differernt quotes, you will see the huge price range you get for the same thing.
Also try private/independant jewellery artisans as they are sometimes the most competitive.
