Princess Eternity Diamond

Diamond is a popular gemstone for all kinds of jewelry. Its incomparable hardness, superb luster and brilliant fire make it the most highly priced of all gems. Diamond is made up of pure carbon, however, it often contains traces of impurities such as nitrogen. Diamond is formed deep beneath the earth’s surface, at very high pressures and temperatures. Its name is obtained from the Greek word “adamas” meaning untamable or unconquerable. The name reflects very well the gemstone’s outstanding ability to withstand scratches. Diamond is the hardest natural substance known on earth. It is also known to be a good conductor of heat. This quality makes it cool to the touch.

Diamond has a very high refractive index as well as high dispersion. These characteristics of the diamond, which are further enhanced by skillful cutting techniques, contribute to the superb brilliance and fire it is known to possess. A well-cut diamond optimizes this refracting ability to maximize its brilliance. Hence, a finely cut faceted diamond gem is extremely beautiful and highly valuable. Furthermore, through the development of better cutting and polishing methods, diamond is constantly improving its brilliance as well as popularity.

Diamond’s quality and value are determined by four factors, which are called the “four Cs”. They are color, clarity, cut and carat. Diamonds are found in a variety of colors due to the presence of impurities. The pure white or colorless diamond is the most valuable and highly priced. Colored diamonds are called fancy diamonds. Their colors include yellow, brown, green, blue, pink and red. Pure, colorless diamonds are rare as most diamonds show some trace of yellowish or brownish tint. The more yellow a diamond, the less it is worth. The clarity grade of a diamond indicates how clear the diamond is. It shows the extent of the presence of flaws in the diamond. The flaws are mainly very tiny imperfections which can only be seen through magnification. The flaws can be internal or external. The internal flaws are called inclusions while the external ones are called blemishes. The clarity grade is based on the number, size, visibility and location of these inclusions and blemishes of the stone. The cut of a diamond is important as it affects the sparkle of the diamond. There are several cutting styles the cutter can choose to use. The choice of cut depends on the particular diamond and how the cutter thinks that the brilliance of the stone can be maximized. If a gemstone is well-cut, the beauty and worth of the gemstone is increased. Cutting may affect the toughness of the stone. Some errors in cutting may increase the stone’s vulnerability to break. Carat is the unit of weight used to measure the weight of a diamond. Diamonds are sold by the carat. The larger the diamond, the more costly it is. Diamonds are graded by the four C’s and these grades determine the cost of the diamond.

Diamonds mainly come from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Sierra Leone, Australia, Russia, USA, Brazil and Canada. It is reported that only about 20 per cent of mined diamonds are suitable to be used as gemstones. The rest are used for other industrial purposes. Diamonds are useful in other industries because of its quality in hardness. They are used in saws, dentist drills, surgical scalpels and as coatings for lenses. Due to its good heat conductivity, it is also used as heat sinks in electronic industries.

According to history, diamonds were used in suits of armor for great knights, and crowns of kings and queens. This gemstone was considered as a symbol of courage and invincibility. Besides, diamond was known to have magical powers. It was believed that the wearer of this gemstone would be endowed with superior strength, bravery and courage. In the past, diamonds were also regarded as talismans that could enhance the love of the husband for his wife. Nowadays, diamond is known to symbolize love, loyalty and courage. Most commonly, diamond is believed to represent eternity and love. Hence, many people usually choose this gemstone for wedding and engagement rings.

Gemstones are considered beautiful, rare and durable. The beauty of a gemstone is undiminished with time. A gemstone could sparkle as brightly many years from now. It has lasting value and is well liked by many. Hence, beautiful pieces of gemstone jewelry are created and widely used for personal adornment as well as gifts for friends and loved ones. Presenting these beautiful items as gifts is always well loved and cherished. Some people buy gems for the purpose of collecting them. They find these gems fascinating and enjoy having a collection of the pieces that they like.

Diamond is the birthstone for the month of April. As such, a piece of jewelry with this gemstone makes a perfect elegant birthday present for those who were born in that month. Diamond is also the anniversary stone for the 10th and 60th year. A piece of jewelry with this gemstone can also be a great anniversary present in these years. You will be amazed how this beautiful gemstone can be made into different jewelry items such as rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, brooches and pendants.

Looking for a Tin ring for a 10th Anniversary Present….?

….does anyone here know where I can find (online or in-store) a Tin ring for my Wife on our 10th Wedding Anniversary in a few months time.

I’ve already bought her an eternity ring for it (a really nice gold, sapphire & diamond one) but would also like something traditional to reflect our 10th year of marriage.

I’ve tried a few search engines to date but all I can find so far are cake tins, which I don’t think (know) would go down too well.

Thanks!

I think tin is too soft of a metal to make jewelry out of. You may want to consider something else.

Are you getting a plain wedding band, diamond one or enhancer?

My engagement ring is yellow gold with brilliant cut solitaire.

I’m getting a plain yellow gold wedding band to go with it.

What about you?

I’ve heard that “enhancers” are really popular instead of wedding bands. They go above and below the engagement ring.

Interesting!

If you have enhancers – is this instead of a wedding band?

But if you already have enhancers, then you can’t get an eternity ring?

Confusing!

Enhancers are popular but I don’t like them… they take up so much space on your finger, especially if you have small fingers. They seem too catchy and flashy and tacky (at least the ones I’ve seen). I want to get a band with channel set diamonds but not eternity (all the way around). I only want it about halfway around because no one will ever be looking the back of the ring, including me.

Getting your wedding band and engagement ring banded together?

I’ve been having the most difficult time with my rings sliding around my finger. My wedding band is a 1/2 eternity band (diamonds only on the front, metal around the back) and when it slides, it doesn’t look nice because the metal band is scratched and dull (lots of wear and tear!). My engagement ring has three diamonds on either side of the main diamond in the middle…so when they are both aligned, it looks nice. Problem is, they hardly ever stay aligned to look that nice!! :)

So, has anyone gotten their rings banded (soldered?) together? Yay or nay??

Your ring sounds identical to mine…LOL! I have wondered about getting mine soldered as well. The jeweler where my hubby got my rings told me that it will not stop the sliding around. I didn’t understand so he just put a little metal band on them to strap them together temporarily so I could see what he was talking about. Now instead of just my band sliding they both slid to the side and I was finding myself still adjusting them. He said this was because they are top heavy and that it may help if I get them soldered and sized a little smaller so they fit very snugly. I can’t stand my rings to fit snugly so I haven’t gotten mine soldered yet. If you want to know what it is like wrap a small wire or yarn around them to see if it makes it better for you if they are soldered. Also if you have a warranty on your rings you may be able to get the metal refinished. My hubby purchased mine with a lifetime guarantee/warranty on the diamonds and the metal so I have get mine refinished every 2 years and they look brand new again. Something to check into. Hope this helps some. Best wishes!

What is the name of an engagment ring where the main diamond is set above a row a smaller diamonds?

I like the “quad” ring but wanna know what that setting is called

Ty!

I heard they called it “river style” where the center diamond is suspended over a row of channel, prong or pave’ set diamond under it.

Some people also call it suspension style almost like a bridge.

Take a look at this photo to see if that’s what you are looking for:

Don’t freak out. I want to have a frank discussion with you about diamond anniversary rings. I know you thought that after purchasing the engagement ring, you would never have to go through the expensive, laborious process of buying another diamond. There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that tradition dictates that your 60th wedding anniversary is your “diamond” anniversary and therefore should be celebrated with the gift of a diamond. So tradition is on your side. The bad news is that many women will definitely want to see more bling before they have been married to you for 60 years. Plus, if you go buy the modern list, you’re due to buy her diamonds by the 10th anniversary. In case your wondering, here is the entirety of the traditional and modern list of gifts you are supposed to get in accordance with each anniversary date:

Traditional Modern

Year 1: Paper Clocks

Year 2: Cotton China

Year 3: Leather Crystal

Year 4: Silk/Flowers Appliances

Year 5: Wood Silverware

Year 6: Candy/iron Wood

Year 7: Wool/copper Desk sets

Year 8: Bronze/rubber Linen

Year 9: Pottery Leather

Year 10: Tin Diamond Jewelry

Year 11: Steel Fashion Jewelry

Year 12: Linen Pearls

Year 13: Lace Textiles

Year 14: Ivory Gold Jewelry

Year 15: Crystal Watches

Year 20: China Platinum

Year 25: Silver Silver

Year 30: Pearl Pearl

Year 35: Coral Jade

Year 40: Ruby Ruby

Year 45: Sapphire Sapphire

Year 50: Gold Gold

Year 55: Emerald Emerald

Year 60: Diamond Diamond

(ThereÂ’s really no need to go by this list unless you want toÂ…Joel and I definitely have not). Anyway, hereÂ’s some more info on diamond anniversary bands in case you are interested in finding out. Typically, diamond anniversary bands are in essence eternity bands, meaning bands that symbolize that your commitment will last until eternity. How this is symbolized in the jewelry world is usually through a precious metal band with small diamonds surrounding the ringÂ’s circumference. The diamonds can be itty bitty chips or big olÂ’ studs depending on your budget and desire for flash. Other gemstones, such as you womanÂ’s birthstone are often used as well, either in isolation or alternating with the diamonds. A ring with small diamond chips will set you back a few hundredÂ….big diamonds will obviously cost a lot more. In any event, most women would love to receive a diamond anniversary ring, so it may be worth shelling out the cash for her delighted response.

The author just celebrated her one year anniversary and sports a beautiful ascher cut ring. She and her husband put together the website: http://www.ultimate-engagement-ring-guide.com to help you find the perfect ring.

Is it common for diamonds to fall off eternity bands?

YES! I have worked in the jewelry industry for quite some time and that is the number 1 reason I wouldn’t sell eternity bands. The bottom of the ring takes so much abuse that you will be constantly replacing stones that have fallen out. I suggest a ring that has stones 3/4 of the way around so it appears to be an eternity band and can be sized but has no stones on the bottom.

http://www.whiteflash.com/Wedding_Bands/Diamonds-for-an-Eternity–3-4-_1069.htm

The 2nd reason I didn’t sell them was “how do you size the ring” it really can’t be sized and your finger will most likely change sizes at least 2 times in your life.

Which setting makes a diamond look bigger, channel or grain?

Which setting for an eternity ring makes the stone look bigger, brighter. I have 7 .20ct stones and want to make into an eternity ring – which is best setting – want a traditional setting but that show cases the diamonds as well as possible, perhaps to wear as wedding/eternity ring.

Any ideas would be great or good websites to look at – Many thanks

I believe a Grain Set Diamond would look larger due to the diamond being more exposed(would not recommend a grain setting for an eternity ring!

Try a Tip Set Ring to enhance the look of the size of diamonds.
A channel set ring is more secure and clean looking too.

Good Luck!

Is it too good to be true?

Hi Guys
What do you think of this ring it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for at an excellent price but I’ve never bought off this website before do you think it’s for real (metal & diamonds) and safe?

http://www.ampalian.com/jewellery/product/SK35Q1103/platinum-diamond-eternity-ring/

DON’T buy it! There can be problems with diamonds falling out of even very well made eternity bands. I am a jeweler, and this one does not look well made, the diamonds do not look like they are set very well. As the saying goes…You get what you pay for. The price is low, but do you want to have diamonds falling out?
