Diamond and jewellery go together like no other kind of modern jewelry. Diamond jewellery necklaces in gold and platinum are something every you girl dreams of – perhaps a tiara set with precious gems. Designs of diamond jewellery, good designs anyway, will make the most of the gem- they will not be overshadowed by the metal work – the stone will jump out a t you and say – “notice me”.
A good jewellery diamond will not be too big – which is not how most people would think it should be – a very large gemstone makes for a nice talking point, but is often very difficult to wear, the larger the diamomd the deeper the cut, and in a ring this can be a draw back. A good jeweller will ask about diamond size and match it to your size, a woman with very small fingers will find it unpractical to wear a 2 cart diamond on her finger, as much as she may want to – it will often not work. A gold diamond ring or a platinum diamond ring needs to be carefully designed around the lifestyle and the tastes of the wearer – an active woman should not wear a claw ring as an engagement ring – a diamond engagement ring is supposed to be worn all of the time – and any woman who gardens or cycles will soon stop wearing it every day. The best diamond is the one that matches the woman, her lifestyle and her budget.
Mixed colors in jewelry add a lot to the design, think about adding emeralds or rubies to a necklace – stay away from emeralds in a ring – if you like green, then Tsavorite is a good option, Emeralds are brittle and will break in a ring. Sapphires are good choice when it comes to a gem that will last, like rubies they are hard and durable. Stay away from opals and iolite – both very soft. Earrings are a great accessory and having several pairs in different colors does not have to be expensive – using combinations of diamonds and semi precious gems gives you many options when dressing in themes – gemstones come in just about any colour you can think of – pink tourmaline, blue topaz, black diamonds, yellow topaz, orange moonstones and many others. Set into the matching color of gold, red gold, yellow gold or white gold, gemstones add that extra color to and diamomd ring or necklace. When buying as a gift make sure you know your partner of friend – there is nothing worse than spending a lot of money on a gift idea only to find she does not like blue – and if your partner is not direct with you she may wear it just to please you. I have met woman who, after 30 years, finally come out and say how much they hate their marriage ring, but did not say anything because they did not want to hurt their husbands feelings. Modern couples usually shop together, but if you want to do the proposal the old fashioned way, down on one knee and as a surprise – I suggest you buy just the diamond and propose with that only, or buy an inexpensive setting and allow your bride to be involved in the design and choice of the setting.
The best diamond jewellery is not only found in high end jewelry stores. If you look around you will find the best, most original diamond and jewellery comes from small jewelers. Designs of diamond jewellery vary tremendously, but many of the high end stores concentrate on the more popular designs, losing sight of originality and sacrificing style for profit. How many woman really want to wear the same ring as hundreds of other woman – in my opinion woman will choose originality anytime – but where does one find unique diamond jewellery necklaces and rings? Diamond and jewellery designers can be found in the small workshops scattered around the world – find a manufacturing jeweler who makes original jewellery, even if his or her specialty is not gold diamond jewellery, and ask them to design something for you. If you are open to newness you are sure to get something special. their workshop may not be about about diamond jewellery, but if a jeweller is original, and does quality work you will end up with the ring of your dreams. The jewellery diamond trade is filled with designers who just regurgitate the same old styles, year after year – while this method makes money, it does nothing for the creation of new jewelry. Good advertising and branding helps to maintain the quality of designs, and because the industry is worth so much, it is unlikely anything will change. Often you will see new styles at fashion shows but in many cases these styles never reach the shelf – so I suppose it is up to the public buyers to make the right choices and search out smaller designer jewelers.
