Expert Tips for Selecting a Pearl Jewelry

Friday, June 27th, 2008

While you are buying pearl jewelry, have you ever thought it is really worth the dollars you spend? If you want to be able to estimate the value or price of a pearl jewelry, you have to learn that what makes up of a jewelry piece, how much the components are worth and how to combine them. Thus the widely-used components that should be taken into consideration are pearls, metal work, decorations, crafts and brands. Pearls are firstly identified by quality standards from A to AAA grades (although the A’s description of AA grade may be a little different from that of B’s). For instance, all are of AA+ grade in quality, south sea pearls are as valuable as Tahitian pearls, then Akoya pearl are worth less, and other saltwater pearls and freshwaters are the most affordable to people. In size, the larger a pearl is, the higher its price can be. Also, a round pearl is better than an off-round or a drop pearl. Lastly, white, pink, golden and black are dominating pearl body colors; but the rarer overtone really make a pearl be more expensive. In short, a 10-12mm, AAA, pink freshwater pearl may be very close to an 8-9mm, AA, white south sea pearl in price in spite of the above facts. Precious metals such silver, gold and platinum are often used to set with pearls jewelry. The unique make or exquisite fabrication of metal let a pearl jewelry be not only more valuable, but also more fashionable. However, metal itself is of great value. It is well known that platinum can bid higher than gold in price. And gold is also worth much more than silver. More specifically, gold is divided into 14K, 18K and 24K. The bigger K number is, the more expensive gold is. Frequently, other gemstones like diamonds, jades, crystal-rocks, even and kinds of pearl imitations and decorations are hired to have/get pearl jewelry decorated, well matched and interspersed. These precious gemstones push the price of pearl jewelry up, while they are enhancing pearl jewelry charm. More often, consummate craft and unique design ideas create a brand for a pearl jewelry, which add much value to and make pearl jewelry really luxurious goods. So a pearl jewelry piece finished by a famous designer or come out of leading company is inevitably sort of high-end product on market.

Engagement Rings: For You My Love

Friday, June 6th, 2008

These reasons emphasis on the point that your would-be-bride is the right buyer for her and for a long-lasting love, you should respect her sentiments. But if you still want to buy the dream engagement ring on your own for your would-be-bride, then you should pay attention to certain points which I am going to suggest below: Number 1: Pay 100% attention Your girlfriend is the person where your true love dwells. She is your passion and desires. You want her to be with you for the rest of your life. So, paying attention to her jewelry likes and dislikes is the first big step towards finding her the perfect engagement ring: What metal color does she wear now? If she loves white gold or platinum, don’t even look at a diamond or other stone mounted in a yellow gold ring setting. Check out what style of jewelry does she wear now? If you are an excellent observer, I am sure you will be able to gift her – the best engagement rings…diamond engagement rings, pearl engagement rings, gold engagement rings, silver engagement rings or platinum engagement rings. Number 2: Has she ever mentioned her likes and dislikes? This is one crucial point, if you know here likes and dislikes already; then make it a point to buy – her favorite engagement ring. If she loves diamond, pearl or any other gemstones, get it studded on her favorite metal…gold, silver or platinum. Number 3: Check out what looks good on her hand? My suggestion is whatever you buy should look good on her hand. It should enhance the beauty of her hand. I have observed that an elongated diamond can make short fingers look more sleek— but be careful not to overdo the look or it could have the opposite effect. Women with long fingers can easily wear bold ring styles. A setting that’s extremely delicate could get lost on large hands. Be careful. Number 4: Right Shape and Setting Matters Right shape and setting can make your engagement rings really look beautiful. Fancier shapes are a big hit among the new generation. Round diamonds are the number one shape preferred by brides. Number 5: Her Lifestyle Buy an engagement ring that fits her lifestyle. Give her fancy engagement ring if she is colorful or a sober engagement ring if she is a working woman. Number 6: Her Ring Size Get one of her rings secretly from her friend or family members. You need her ring to buy a perfect engagement ring from jewelry store. Number 7: Consider a loose diamond Loose diamond gives her the option to get it studded on her favorite metal and even shape it to her favorite design. Another advantage is that loose diamond gives you both a chance to shop for the perfect engagement rings.
