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.

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’.

ring choice?

do you like large eternity bands or solitaire diamonds with a plain band better? i’m trying to decide btwn the two and can’t make a decision. the solitaire and plain wedding band seem too safe, but the estate/vintage style eternity bands seem like there might not be enough diamond presence.

http://geocities.com/sbiv37/marr

i’m already married. been married 4 yrs. just trying to upgrade the original rings.
the reason for the upgrade: my husband and i don’t believe in going into debt for material possessions. we bought the ring we could afford when we got married (i was 21), with the intention to upgrade on our 5th anniversary when we could afford better. we both graduated college and have great jobs. we have saved up and want to upgrade.

Just to address a previous answer…
There is no reason you can’t upgrade any time you like…maybe you are at a different financial status than before, and now you can afford what you really want. Lots of people may have to buy the tiniest little diamond chip, and plan to upgrade later. This may be a great 5th anniversay gift, or whatever.

I think an even more appropriate choice for an upgrade/anniversary gift is the 3 stone ring, with the large one in the center flanked by two stones on the side. They can be any shape, and the ones on the sides can be a different shape than the center one (like a triangle or trillion cut that points down each side of the band).

This represents past, present and future.

Maybe that could be your replacement engagement ring and the eternity band can be your replacement wedding band. The fun part with the 3 stone ring is you can mix diamonds with another stone, if you like sapphire for instance. It could be the main stone, or the side stones.

I really love the eternity ring too but my jeweler seemed to advise against it, you may want to discuss with a certified jeweler at a nice local store (not a chain store in the mall, tho I’m sure they have perfectly valid and certified employees of some kind).

So I chose the 3 stone ring, in all rounds. The wedding band will be a custom band with 5 smaller stones that bows slightly to hug the engagement ring. They will be soldered together after we get back from our honeymoon.

It was a really hard choice….so many styles to choose from and the antique/vintage designs are so ornate and eye catching. But eventually I had to go with my overall style (more modern/simple, classic even) and go for the 3 stone. Mine is in white gold, by the way, I don’t know if you mentioned your preference on the metal/color.

Ladies, how big do you like your engagement diamond?

I just got a 1.25ct heart shaped diamond for an engagement ring I’m building. Is that a good size or should I go bigger? What sizes do you wear?
When I asked what size…I meant the size of the diamond, not the ring, sorry for the confusion.

That’s plenty big! If she loves you the ring is just a plus anyway. She’ll be more excited about the proposal. The fact that you’re building it is even more special. She’ll love it.

What Shape Diamond Engagement Ring Do You Want?

In your opinion, when you see a woman with a heart-shaped diamond engagement ring do you think it’s cheesy? I know some people are into more classic rings. Personally I love them.

What shape diamond ring do you prefer?

Princess Cut has always been my favorite. Heart shaped is nice and original as long as it’s not too big. it would be hard to find a wedding band to match the shape though.

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.
