Diamond Sapphire Wedding
Why was the diamond chosen for the wedding ring? why not something else?

is there a reason why wedding rings have diamonds in them?? (besides being pretty) is there a certain meaning or reason behind it?
and is it a bad thing if i want a sapphire or ruby instead of a diamond in my wedding ring?? i don’t know if it would be a bad thing.. i don’t really like diamonds.. haha.

Good question! lol very interesting it really got me thinking….here’s what I found! This will answer your question about its meaning!

You could have a sapphire or ruby in the ring with diamonds. That would be very unique and pretty. Like these!

Are lab created diamonds as valuable as genuine diamonds?

I know what the difference between them is, but are lab created diamonds as valuable? For example, if I were to buy two identical stones, but one was lab created and one natural and took them to another jeweler, would they be valued as the same?

Lab created gems are way less expensive than natural gems because natural gems take much longer to develope. Lab gems are created in larger quantity and natural gems need the right environment just to develope and quantity is very low which makes them rare and expensive.

A pink diamond ring reflects a creative and artistic personality of the lucky person who wears one. Rare and beautiful, pink hue diamonds are owned by celebrities and the very rich. Those of us not in that category can enjoy their beauty in inexpensive replicas that modern technology has produced. These are known as inspired rings. These synthetic pink diamonds can look so real that it is difficult even for professional jewelers to recognize. It takes special equipment to determine the authenticity of a natural pink gem diamond.

The world’s supply of natural pink colored diamonds is being depleted, so the price will continue to escalate. The Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia produces 90 percent of the world’s diamonds. Pink colored diamonds comprise of only one tenth of one percent of those and officials say that that supply will run out in a few years. The value of a pink diamond is determined by color, clarity, and absence of flaws. The more intense the color, the more expensive the diamond will be. Colors range from a light pink to a purplish red. It is thought that during the hundreds of years the diamond was being formed, certain minerals were present that contributed to the color.

Pink Diamond Engagement Ring

Who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive a pink hued diamond engagement ring? When a celebrity receives one the media is quick to report it. We heard about the 1.2 million dollar pink engagement ring that Ben Affeck gave to Jennifer Lopez. We also read about Mariah Carey’s pink diamond engagement ring. Soccer player David Becham gave his wife a 10-carat pink diamond ring with matching earrings. That must have put a slight dent in his pocketbook.

If you have 10 million dollars to invest, you might check out the Graff Vivid Pink Pear Shaped Diamond Ring or the Harry Winston Fancy Intense Pink Diamond, 10-carat ring. You can find these online. If buying a natural pink diamond on line it is extremely important to deal with a reputable jeweler and make sure you get an authentic certification.

No matter what kind of ring you decide to purchase for the special someone in your life, make sure your motivations aren’t just to find the most expensive, but the one that will truly be special.

what do you think of this engagement ring?

http://www.bluenile.com/pink-sapphire-diamond-engagement-ring_5108?filter_id=1&collection_id=241

I will be adding a round diamond that is 1.3 carats. around 6 thousand dollars. Is the band the goes with this ring meant as the weeding band.

It’s not something I would ever personally want to wear, but is this ring her style? If it is, that matters a lot more than what yahoo answers thinks. And I do like the pink sapphires, because pink is my favorite color. Does your girlfriend really love pink, and is she a non-traditional? If she is than it is reasonable to assume this might be her style.

Have you talked to her family? Her best friend? Do you know that she prefers white gold? Do you know that she prefers round cut diamonds? Do you know that she would want a ring this size? (Yes, there are actually girls who would consider it “too big”. If she has a job where she uses her hands a lot, or works with very small children all day she may actually find smaller and less bulky rings more practical)

You need to talk to someone who knows her really really well, as a person and as a woman. Not a bunch of people on yahoo answers.

How much would a pink diamond ring cost?

Hello.

I am looking at engagement rings and I am thinking about a pink diamond.

How much would a ring like that cost? It can be a solitaire if the diamond is big enough.

Can I get a descent looking pink diamond ring for $1500 or less?

I doubt it, but you might know more!

Pink diamonds are a lot more rare than regular diamonds, so the price tags match that fact.

Here are some examples from Blue Nile … very pricey!

http://www.bluenile.com/diamonds/fancy-color-diamonds/

I am a great lover of pink myself, but my fiance wanted to get my a more traditional engagement ring (with a center diamond). So he custom designed a three-stone ring with a center diamond and pink sapphire side-stones. I LOVE it! And I am the envy of all of my pink-loving friends!

Pink Sapphires are much less expensive than pink diamonds, and you have more selection of the range of pink you can choose. I have also heard that most pink diamonds are artificially coloured, so they aren’t really natural stones. Pink sapphires on the other hand are natural. So a ring with pink sapphires might be a better alternative.

My sister-in-law’s engagement ring is three thin bands that make up the main band … the middle band is pink gold with pink diamonds (pave setting, very tiny chips of diamonds … it almost looks like sparkling dust … it’s very cool). But her setting cost almost as much as her 1.25 carat diamond!

what is the value a fancy diamond yellow?

what is the value of a very intense vivid genuine yellow diamond that it flawless and totally unheated and untreated? how rare are they?

I have just been researching it lately as well. There are many factors but from what I found $20K – $35K per carot. The link has a good article: http://www.amgad.com/YellowDiamondArticle.pdf

Rarety for anything is inversely proportional to your net worth.

Good luck.

The Diamonds in the Smithsonian’s Exhibit

The Smithsonian’s Splendor of Diamonds was a display of seven of the rarest diamonds in the world. The diamonds ranged in size from 5.11 carats to 203.04 carats. The exhibit ran from June 27, 2003 to September 15, 2003. The seven diamonds displayed were the Allnatt, the Millennium Star, the Ocean Dream, the Moussaieff Red, the Heart of Eternity, the Steinmetz Pink, and the Pumpkin Diamond.

The Allnatt is a cushion-cut, Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond, as rated by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA.) It is currently owned by the SIBA Corporation and has a mass of 101.29 carats. Its yellow color is due to a certain concentration of Nitrogen impurities within the carbon structure. The Allnatt’s rarity comes from its size and its color- few diamonds with a mass greater than 100 carats can retain such a vivid color, which makes these diamonds perfect for money back guarantee diamonds, since nobody would want to return such a unique diamond.

The Allnatt Diamond

The De Beers Millennium Star is the sixth largest known colorless diamond of gemstone quality that has ever been found. It is the second largest flawless, colorless pear cut diamond. The lack of color in the Millennium Star means that it is made entirely from crystallized carbon. There are no impurities from other elements, no defects in its structure, no irradiation during the growth process.

The Millennium Star is owned by the De beers company. It originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the early 1990s. The original diamond was 777 carats (155.4 g.) It went to the Steinmetz group three years to laser-cut and polish the rough crystal to its 203.04 carat pear shape. There was some debate concerning whether the diamond was a “blood diamond” or a “non conflict diamond” since it was from an area rich in war diamonds, but this truth was never proven and cleared the Kimberley Process.

The Ocean Dream is a 5.51 carat (1.102 g), Fancy Deep Blue-Green diamond, as rated by the GIA. It is one of the rarest diamonds in the world, for it is the only natural diamond known to the GIA to be of a blue-green color. Blue green is normally seen in synthetic or artificially altered diamonds. In order to achieve such a hue, the diamond color must be altered via irradiation. The Ocean Dream was exposed to millions of years of the earth’s natural radiation- causing its blue-green color.

The Moussaieff Red is a 5.11 carat (1.022 g), trilliant cut, fancy red diamond, as rated by the GIA. Red, especially a deep red, is one of the rarest hues found in a diamond. The Moussaieff is the largest Fancy Red diamond that the GIA have ever seen. It was found by a farmer in Brazil in the mid 1990s, where it was purchased as a rough crystal of 13.9 carats (2.78 g) by William Goldberg Diamond Corp. The crystal was cut, polished, and named the Red Shield. It was bought by the Moussaieff Jewelers Ltd and renamed.

The Heart of Eternity is a 27.64 carat (5.528 g), heart cut, Fancy Vivid Blue diamond, rated by the GIA. This diamond originates from South Africa. It was cut by the Steinmetz Company, who sold it to the De Beers Company. The blue color is due to boron impurities in the carbon structure of the diamond. Very few “blue” diamonds are of such vivid color, for often the boron is only located in certain sections of the stone, or the color is extremely desaturated and mixed with shades of gray.

Like many diamonds, the Steinmetz Pink originates from South Africa. It is owned by Steinmetz Company, has a mass of 59.60 carats, and is internally flawless. The GIA diamond rings Institute (the world’s foremost authority on diamonds) confirmed it to be the largest Fancy Vivid Pink diamond that they had ever seen. It took twenty months to prepare, cut, and polish.

At 5.54 carats (1.108g), the Pumpkin Diamond is one of the largest Fancy Vivid Orange diamonds that the GIA have ever rated. It originated from the Central African Republic, where it was cut and polished by William Goldberg. The Pumpkin Diamond was bought by Ronald Winston for 1.3 million dollars, though it is currently valued at three million dollars. It was set in a ring between two white diamonds for actress Halle Berry to wear to the 2002 Oscars.

The diamond is such a magnificent gem and there’s no denying its magnetic allure. It has been the cause of scandals, robberies and murder down the centuries, such has been it’s drawing power. I’m sure there’s not a woman alive who doesn’t remember what it felt like the first time a real diamond decorated her hand. And yet this natural stunner can be created only under very specific conditions, that is, the exposure of carbon-bearing materials to incredibly intense pressures ranging between 45-60 kilobars and just as dramatically different low temperatures of around 1650-2370 deg F (900-1300 deg C). Our planet has two areas where these conditions occur, the Lithospheric Mantle below comparatively stable continental plates and, strangely, the site of a meteorite impact.

What most people don’t know is that the sapphire is an extremely hard substance and is not only a close second to the diamond in beauty, but also, after the diamond, is the second natural most hardest substance in the world.

The diamond will probably always hold premier position over other gems, but there is an engaging romance we ladies have with pink sapphires. They are quite simply stunning and there’s an association of love and romance with them. One of the first pieces of jewellery created that did credit to this little beauty was the famous pink sapphire double flamingo.

The popularity of this little pink gem has escalated in recent years, making diamond and pink sapphire jewellery in all manor of decorations much sought after. There’s something quite magical when you’ve got ready for that special night out to add the finishing touches with some simple but stunning earrings or a bracelet or a classic watch, etc.

Although we may be used to seeing the rich and famous dripping in hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of diamonds, these days beautiful jewellery is affordable for all pockets. Diamond and pink sapphires make a perfect gift for that special lady in your life or even maybe if you just want to treat yourself. With the credit crunch hitting everyone’s pockets, it’s really good to know there are still ways of keeping costs down.
