Women are made for jewelry! This is a statement much like which came first the chicken or the egg? To those of us in the world of today, who really cares, as we now have both and it doesn’t really matter. Little can set off the beauty of a woman’s face like a well chosen necklace and earrings and one does not have to be endowed with an inordinate amount of wealth to score a “10” with the judges. As we trend towards things that sparkle, the diamond is our natural choice of what we think of as being beautiful.
The sparkle that we select for that special woman can be accentuated by taking care in the choice of the setting for the stone and the color of the background. Always remember to understand what the lady considers as being pretty before committing yourself to the project. Many women consider the simple stud as being the only choice for them while others like to have a little dangle in their diamond.
As bad as it might sound women notice other women’s bling and before long it has made the rounds to the center of all good gossip, the powder room. Conversations will then continue well outside the powder room and by the end of the evening, the inappropriate jewelry could well become the next international crisis. The one way a woman can protect herself is to not be overly jeweled for the event. A trip to the local Sonic would not be a good outing for the nice diamond studs that you received last Christmas
The new champs are named and Dallas has good reason to be proud of their team. This is one of the best things that has happened to the community in a few years and now comes the fun part of making memories of the series and making a group of old men the heroes of the year. As a man, I did enjoy the series, but I enjoyed seeing what game six brought out in the form of diamonds on the rougher sex. The women were of course no big surprise but the men got to strut their stuff, in style.
Without giving names and getting into a my bling is better than his bling thing, let me just say that the diamond rings supported by many men left nothing to be desired. We were able to see everything from the huge and fancy to the little pinky ring on our roosters of the midway. Good color was seen in the diamonds sported by the athletes of the teams who did not make the big game but found themselves before the cameras giving their take on the game. Some of the rings made expensive statements of style and wealth while others were a little more normal in size and weight.
Also apparent were the diamond bracelets being sported by many men. Some of our finest actors left nothing to be questioned by their choice of wrist enhancing displays of their successes. These same bracelets were found throughout the well endowed sitting behind the benches and of course during the interviews after the game. Diamonds look good on whoever decides to wear them and there is little doubt as to the quality and reality of the item being displayed by some of our more successful men game attendees.
Watches seem to make a big showing as well. Some of the watches looked like the crown jewels of a little country. Gold and diamonds were everywhere on the watch and band and one might wonder how much they weighed to carry around, all day. “Dainty” was not the word de jour for the evening but regardless of that fact these gentlemen had time “a plenty” on their wrists and hands.
Men, “ya” did a good job keeping up with the women and even running a bit ahead of some of the women, in the audience.
If you have never looked for diamond jewelry at an estate sale, you are really missing out. Unique, rare, and valuable pieces are often intermixed with other various items of no discernable value. But when it happens, when you find that one-of-a-kind piece, it is well worth the effort!
How do you know you are buying quality diamond jewelry at an estate sale? The first step is to become knowledgeable about the types of diamonds, their cuts, and how clarity affects them. (If you have no prior knowledge of these important diamond details, consider reading a book or searching online for information.) Once you feel that you are knowledgeable in telling the difference between junk and treasure, find an estate sale in your area.
Estate sales can be advertised in the newspaper or online. Sometimes, estate sales are even hosted by companies specializing in inventory liquidation. Check in your local area to find an estate sale that interests you. If you see diamond jewelry at an estate sale, ask to see a jewelry certification. Occasionally, the family or company running the estate sale can provide appraisal documentation on the piece. If they cannot provide any to you, there is no guarantee that the piece of diamond jewelry is actually worth anything. However, this lack of certainty does give you a way to bargain the price lower.
Once you have purchased a piece of diamond jewelry at an estate sale, take it in to have it appraised. Sometimes, you will be pleasantly surprised by the value of an item you thought was not worth very much. Shopping for diamond jewelry at an estate sale takes time, patience, and luck. But sometimes, in the end, you can end up finding one-of-a-kind pieces you would not be able to find anywhere else!
There are many different types of precious and semi-precious gems that are used in jewellery these days, each boasting unique beauty and sparkle. However, when it comes to the popularity of precious gems that are used in different items of jewellery diamonds will always be hugely popular. There are many reasons why people tend to choose diamonds as their gem of choice for items of jewellery, and some of these are listed below:
Beauty and radiance
Diamonds give off a unique fiery sparkle that really radiates from the stone and catches the eye of anyone that is around. These precious stones are both beautiful and extremely elegant. Diamonds have a classic and timeless beauty about them, which has universal appeal.
Diamonds are one of the most sentimental gems, as they represent purity, romance, love, eternity, and innocence. They are the ideal choice for jewellery being given as a gift. Whether you are buying jewellery for a partner for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or a birthday, or whether you are buying something like a Mother’s day gift, diamonds are a fabulous choice that will go down a treat with the recipient.
One of the great things about diamonds is that they are very versatile and they look great with anything. Diamonds will go with any colour or style of outfit, adding class, style, and elegance to it. These precious gems are also versatile enough to look great in any precious metal. So, you can choose gold, silver, white gold, palladium, or platinum, and these gems will look stunning encased in any of them.
We’ve all heard the saying ‘diamonds are forever’ and this is pretty much true. A good quality, well looked after diamond is something that will go on and on. As it is designed to stand the test of time you can enjoy the beauty of the diamond forever, and you can even pass the jewellery down to your kids or grandkids, turning it into an heirloom that could go on for centuries.
With so many precious stones to choose from it can be difficult to decide which one may be the most suitable one for the person you are buying jewellery for. However, with diamonds being a girl’s best friend you really can’t go wrong with these precious stones. Any woman will be thrilled to receive dazzling diamond jewellery as a gift.
Have you ever heard the saying, “for luck, every bride needs something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue?” Well, this is certainly true when it comes to the options she has available for her wedding ring!
Vintage wedding rings are still quite popular. From designs of the 19th century to those from the 1960s, antique jewelry is still enough to make even the pushiest of brides swoon. If you are trying to find the perfect vintage ring design, check with local estate auctions or antique jewelers.
Of course, a new ring is always acceptable. Many jewelry retailers offer the latest in diamond ring trends. Or, consider logging online and creating a custom style for the bride-to-be. Trust us, she’ll be happy you took the time to create something that is quite unique!
If a budget is of great concern, consider renting a wedding ring! Many retailers and online companies are allowing brides to rent stunning designs for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. You decide how long to keep the ring, but the wedding photos with bling last forever.
Colored stones are also making their way into diamond bridal jewelry. Whether you are searching for a blue diamond, brown diamond, or pink diamond, your local diamond retailer most likely has it.
