your 1st and 3rd option looks the same, same thing happens with your 6th and 7th option; and if u look at your 2nd and your 4th option, it looks also the same, but only with a different background and price. The 2nd one is cheaper than the fourth one; and if u look at your 6th option, it looks like a bridal necklace and earrings, and it I guess it won’t fit for your cousin as she is not to be married, yet.
So, now we have your 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 8th option.

According to me,
The best one is the 1st, then 2nd, then 8th, and the last 5th.

*Be aware of diamonds,,,
they can be fake as we can make diamonds easily out of carbon.
You should check carefully, and if needed, ask someone who is an expert in diamonds, to check them.

Hope this helps!

What’s the difference between round diamonds and princess cut diamonds? Why is the princess cut cheaper?

Diamond shapes
Round diamonds, princess diamonds, marquise diamonds, oval diamonds or pear-shaped diamonds? What to think about before buying a diamond of any particular shape.

We’ve said that the shape of a diamond is a matter of personal taste. While a round diamond may appeal to a more traditional woman, a heart shape has greater appeal to the hopelessly romantic. But there are other considerations to take into account before making your final selection.

First, how will the shape of the diamond look on your hand? A woman with a small hand may prefer a round or princess shape diamond; whereas, a woman with long, slender fingers can wear a marquise, pear or oval shape diamond without having it cover too much of her finger to look elegant. The setting – or mounting — for a diamond also plays a role in how the diamond looks on a woman’s hand. A heavier, more elaborate setting, for instance, would not appear graceful on a smaller hand. Certain settings also enhance the beauty of a particular shape of diamond better than others.

Second, how important is size? Diamonds are measured in carat weight, but shape contributes to the appearance of size. A one-carat emerald shape diamond with a larger surface area (table), but less depth, may appear larger than a two-carat round diamond with a smaller table, but greater depth in the bottom portion of the stone (pavilion).

Finally, what shape catches the eye? If you’re looking for a diamond that will attract a lot of attention, you’ll probably prefer The Leo Diamond®. Whatever shape Leo Diamond you prefer, you’ll be wowed by its superior brilliance when compared with other diamonds of comparable quality.

Beautiful diamonds, like beautiful women, come in all shapes and sizes. It’s truly a matter of personal taste which shape holds the greatest appeal for you.

What shapes do diamonds come in?
There are eight diamond shapes that are most commonly offered by fine jewelers:

Round diamonds

Princess diamonds

Marquise diamonds

Oval diamonds

Pear-shaped diamonds

Emerald diamonds

Radiant diamonds

Heart diamonds

Asscher

Of these diamonds shapes, the most popular by far is the round diamond, which takes center stage in the classic engagement ring – a round, solitaire diamond set either in yellow gold or platinum. Shapes other than round are called fancy shapes.

See The Leo Diamond Collection

Diamond shape vs. diamond cut: what’s the difference?
Since you’re learning about diamonds, it makes sense to know the correct terminology. The terms “shape” and “cut” are frequently confused. People refer to an emerald cut diamond, but emerald is really the shape of the stone, not the cut. The shape is the geometrical form of a diamond after a diamond artisan cuts and polishes it.

Cut is another story altogether. Cut is one of the 4Cs – or characteristics of a diamond — that determines the value of a diamond. A well cut diamond is one that maximizes the beauty and brilliance of the stone.

Whether a diamond is well cut or poorly cut depends entirely on the skill of the artisan. Cutting a diamond requires experience, artistry, and precision. Each individual facet must be precisely carved and placed in a symmetrical pattern to capture and reflect light brilliantly. See how Return of Light affects the value of diamonds. A perfect example? The Leo Diamond. It’s handcrafted for superior fire, sparkle and brilliance by the master artisans at Leo Schachter.

You can recognize a well cut diamond by its fire and brilliance; but to be absolutely sure you can ask your jeweler for a GemEx report – a scientific measurement of Return of Light taken with a BrillianceScope™. It’s an additional diamond certification that comes with every Leo Diamond, by Leo Schachter.

Other factors to consider when choosing a diamond are:

• Certification

• The 4C’s

• Beauty and brilliance

• Branded Vs unbranded

• How much you want to spend

• Which setting you should choose

• The best place to buy a diamond

Crystal Interchangeable Earring

Crystal Interchangeable Earring

Funky designer jewelry can be purchased from a department store, online store, eBay or you can even make your own. People who are drawn to funky jewelry are the people who like to be unique. Funky jewelry is noticeable, quirky, stylish, colorful, exotic. The type of jewelry you wear is reflective of your personality.

Dressed to the nines may not be enough if you don’t complete your outfit with just the right accessories. Jewelry is the ornament on the tree, it captures and reflects light and makes you look dazzling. It’s a good idea to have as many interchangeable pieces as you can, with an eye toward matching and complimenting your current wardrobe. If you are fond of wearing browns and tans, brown leather cording and coordinating pendants look quite nice. If you like blacks, silver is exceptionally pretty.

Funky Designer Jewelry: The Bangles

Bangle bracelets have become more and more popular throughout the years. They might be in the form of many thin bracelets jangling together on your wrist, or they might be one big heavy thick bracelet. Depending on the outfit, both are perfectly acceptable and fashionable. Some bangles are so thick and large they are referred to as “cuffs” because they are nearly the size of a cuff on a shirt. These tend to be quite ornate, studded with amazing stones and perfect with a sleeveless or halter dress.

You can find bangle bracelets made of nearly every material, and of course, in the traditional sterling silver and gold. They can also be made of velvet, wood, porcelain and nearly anything that can be affixed to a basic plastic bangle (like small felt flowers, ribbons, etc).

Funky Designer Jewelry: Pendant Necklaces

Nothing says “Look at me!” more than a gorgeous pendant necklace. In days past, a pendant necklace would be the focal point of the necklace. But now, with variations creeping up in all the designers fashions, even the necklace portion itself may be adorned with beads, charms or various crystals.

Pendant necklaces, when worn with no other jewelry, can make a statement for you without you even saying a word. Choose your pendants wisely, again, base it on what catches your eye, what speaks to you, like your birthstone, your favorite gem, your favorite color, or a combination of all three that truly is funky.

Funky Designer Jewelry: Earrings

Earrings may be the boldest of all funky designs to wear because being closest to your face they are the most noticeable. Many earring designs relate to certain holidays. Black cats, pumpkins and candy corn for Halloween. Christmas trees, tiny wrapped presents and candy canes for Christmas. If celebrating the holidays via your ears is not your style, you can purchase or make your own earrings in the shapes of hearts, flowers or any number of interesting designs. Funky earrings usually take on many different elements of color and material. Metal combined with crystal, high quality plastic combined with wood.

Funky jewelry is a fun way to convey your personality to the rest of the world. Stock up when you spot sales, as it’s also fun to mix and match pieces and to make them into truly your own style.

I bought my wife a Diamond Tennis Bracelet for a wedding gift and she has only been able to wear it 6 times.?

I bought the warranty and I am so glad I did. Each time she wears it a diamond falls out. So we take it back every time and they keep it for about 2 weeks and replace the diamond that falls out. Each time she gets it back she wears it for a few days and another one falls out. Well this last time we got it back and the yellow gold is now almost “wearing off” by the clasp and the diamonds that were replaced look darker and not as clear. I am fed up and want to just return, but am worried they will try to give me store credit or not take it back because to fit my wife’s wrist they had to take a few links out. Any suggestions on what my approach should be with them?

check and see what the return policy is first, then check the wording of your warranty (THEY HAVE TO MAKE IT RIGHT!), and your last chance of hope could be if you used your credit card to make the purchase (some c/c carry there customer satisfaction policy for goods purchased.
My husband bought me wedding set from Friedmans Jewelry and after i wore it for 7 months one of the smaller stones fell out of the engagement ring, had to pay to replace it and the stone they replaced it with was a crappier stone also AND the white gold now has a yellow tint to it. So now my wedding band is shiny white gold and the engagement ring has a tinge of yellow gold to it. I didn’t say anything about it b/c my husband would have thrown a fit all over the manager and besides it is a beautiful set and noone else notices the difference (not even him)!!

Sterling Silver Diamond

Sterling Silver Diamond

Silver jewelry is simple but yet beautiful and has been worn for many years by all different types of people. What makes it even more attractive to all kinds is the fact that you can obtain exquisite pieces of silver jewelry at a fraction of the cost of it’s golden counterpart. When comparing the price of silver jewelry to that of white gold that almost looks the same, it is found that the price of silver are about an quarter of the price you will pay for white gold.

It should also be pointed out that silver jewelry is easier to wear casually as well. Silver also has a tendency to enhance almost any skin tone. Although silver jewelry does not have the durability of stainless steel jewelry, it is still strong and durable enough for the purpose it needs to serve.

Durability

Its durability comes from the addition of copper. Not too much copper is added to the alloy. Only enough is added to enhance the strength of silver in order to produce durable jewelry.

Purity

The principal concern when shopping for silver jewelry is to certain of the quality of silver piece you are buying. Because silver is a particularly pliable metal, alloys are added to harden and strengthen the silver. The minimum concentration of silver required in silver jewelry in order to be regarded as true sterling silver is 92.5%. Silver used for coins, consist a 90% silver concentration, while any base metal that is plated with a thin layer of silver is regarded as plated silver and not pure silver. When buying silver, marks such as “sterling”, “sterling silver”, “ster” or “925″ imprinted on the jewelry itself indicate the purity thereof.

What is Sterling Silver?

Pure silver is soft, too soft to create durable jewelry, so it’s mixed with other metals to enhance performance. One popular silver mixture (also called as an alloy) is known as Sterling Silver.

Sterling Silver Markings and Descriptions

The FTC (US Trade Commission) demands that all sterling jewelry sold in the United States can only be marked with silver markings or be presented as “silver”, “solid silver”, “sterling silver”, “sterling” or with the abbreviation “Ster”, if it hold at least 92.5% pure silver. The minimum silver content can also be stated as 925 parts per thousand of pure silver, so you might see the figures 925 or 92.5 used to designate silver content.

What to consider when buying Silver Jewelry?

Earrings is a good place to start when buying sterling jewelry. Silver earrings are available in many different shapes and sizes to suit many different occasions. Hanging silver and cubic zirconium (cz) earrings may be perfect for a more formal type of occasion, while silver hoops or even studs may be a better choice for wearing at the office. Necklaces are good pieces to consider when buying sterling jewelry, as there is sure to be a type of silver necklace to go with every outfit. For example, a silver dog tag pendant on a leather cord may be great with jeans and casual wear, while a silver and cz (cubic zirconium) pendant on a silver chain can look very elegant with formal wear like an evening dress. The length of a necklace is an key concern when buying your silver jewelry. Choker length necklaces looks better when wore with a blouse, and longer silver chains goes better with low-cut necklines.

Bracelets are also popular options when buying sterlingjewelry and just as unique in their diversity. You can obtain silver bracelets from being wide cuffs to thin, unpretentious linked silver chains. When looking for a timeless classic gift for a special person, then an engraved silver identity bracelet will be an excellent choice.

How to wrap a crystal without wire?

I have been wanting to wrap a crystal without wire to make a necklace. I know that sinew can be used, but i have none, and am unsure how to get ahold of any, and to be honest, not really sure what to do if i got some. Does anyone know a substance other than wire or sinew that could be used to effectively wrap a crystal that wont come apart (so like no string) or how to wrap a crystal using sinew, and wherei could find some, or a webste with all of that ainformation? Thank you in advance for your wonderful answers.

The reason sinew works is that when wetted it stretches and when it dries it shrinks and gets fairly hard. To use it you soak it in water. It will feel sort of rubbery and a bit slimy and be hard to handle. Pull on it as you are wrapping and tying it. Straight leather including leather shoe laces will do the same thing.

Who says bridesmaid dresses have to be big, frumpy, or downright unattractive? Many brides are treating their bridesmaids to dresses that are hip, fashion forward, and fabulous enough to be worn to their next cocktail party. These are some of the things to look for in the coolest, trendiest bridesmaid dresses.

The first thing to do is forget about a floor length dress. The hippest bridesmaid dresses are knee length or even a bit shorter. (Yes, bridesmaids can wear mini dresses if they are not too mini, and they are done in good taste. Think on the beach, not in a cathedral.) Color is very important, as well. The most modern dresses are not done in the traditional pastels, but rather are in sophisticated striking colors such as deep purple, pewter, and navy.

It is the cut that sets a hip bridesmaid dress apart from the pack. Look for interesting, fresh-off-the-runway details. Good choices include one shoulder dresses, strapless, bubble hems, and deep sexy v-necks. These bridesmaid dresses will have unique designs, such as a combination of chiffon and satin, tiers, or a baby doll style.

Fabrics for updated bridesmaid dresses typically are flowing and fluid. You will definitely not find any petticoats! Popular choices include chiffon, charmeuse, and tissue taffeta. Stiff and formal fabrics do not work when you are going for a modern and updated look.

The right accessories will make all of the difference in the finished effect. To keep the bridesmaids looking hip and current, you will need to take care with their accessories. If you add a traditional strand of pearls to a deep-v dark aubergine dress, you will ruin the effect. When you are shopping for bridesmaid jewelry gifts, your mantra should be unique, stylish, and hip. The jewelry gifts that you give to each bridesmaid should be pieces that they will want to wear again, such as long crystal earrings and pendants. For the perfect finishing touches, think about strappy sandals, beaded or fabric clutches, and a wrap in case it gets chilly.

The bridesmaid dresses that you choose should naturally suit the general tone and style of your wedding. Hip and trendy dresses are ideal for weddings in places like urban lofts or outdoor locations. They would not suit wedding spots that are formal, traditional, or very conservative. Keep in mind that the dresses you choose should also suit your bridesmaids – all of your bridesmaids. If your friends are fairly young and trendy themselves, then these chic and updated styles will suit them to a “t”. On the other hand, if your attendants are normally more country club than city chic, they might end up looking and feeling ridiculous in really cutting edge dresses.

Ultimately, the bridesmaid dresses that you choose are a reflection of your personal style and taste. If you gravitate towards what is cool and modern, then your bridesmaid dresses should also be hip and stylish. The right bridesmaid dresses will add a fresh and fashionable edge to your wedding party.

Laura is interested in wedding planning and wedding trends including jewelry, receptions and gifts. Gifts of bridesmaid jewelry are especially great when they are handcrafted just for your wedding.
