Astrological Blue Sapphire

Blue sapphire is a Gemstone of Saturn or Shani. As indicated by Medic Astrology, Saturn relates with hard-working and devoted people. It isn’t right to say Saturn gives you success without hard work. In fact, people who are not hard-working can’t get the great power of these gemstones; This Gemstone gives great power to only hard-working people. On the off-chance that you are not afraid of hard work, you can wear these gemstones to get the endowments of Shani. Only hard-working people get the great power of Blue Sapphire on this planet.

It was also said that it gives supremacy to the wearer immediately. In my own point of view, it isn’t right; the reason is that Saturn is the slowest planet in Zodiac. It takes no less than years to finish the circle of twelve Rashes. The planet Moon takes only a month to complete the circle of twelve Rashes, which means it is the fastest planet. To be candid, a Gemstone can take months to give results to the wearer.

Cross Necklaces

Many multiple forms of these necklaces can be discovered in the present times. There are the plain cross pendant necklaces, the classic or orthodox crosses, the Celtic cross and crucifixes. There are certain pendants that are meticulously handcrafted with the help of designers, though there are many that are made on a commercial scale.

The structure is changed from time to time too, for adding variation in the conventional shape. The sterling and gold, silver cross pendants are essentially being common ones.

Gift The Fashion Rings

Face it, a diamond is a way to a woman’s heart. You can call it her weakness. You can call it her Kryptonite. Women love diamonds – the sparkle, the beauty and the stunning design – can melt her heart. Diamond rings – solitaire or otherwise – are known for their delicate brilliance and the eternal love it evokes. If you want the traditional diamond rings, you will check out a ring with a big princess-cut diamond, enhanced by the small and radiant diamonds around. If you have the rebel spirit in your heart, you may love the two tone rings with the fancy coloured diamonds of different colours – each symbolizing different meaning. It is a gorgeous way of conveying your feelings – without saying it out loud.

Gemstones need to be very specific. If someone believes in their astrological value as birthstones, it could be very thoughtless to gift a ring with a gemstone that is not appropriate. For the unconventional divas, a birthstone ring could be just as inappropriate. Fact is, if you get it right, it could be very thoughtful and expensive gift. Now, any man, who has ever bought a gift for

Armor Ring Jewelry

As a piece of jewelry the armor ring has attracted a fair amount of attention of its own just lately with some of Hollywood’s A listers having been seen wearing more than one or two on a number of occasions.

To be honest you can hardly fail to notice a fantastic finger covering that reaches from the base of the finger to just under the nail bed or second knuckle even when a mega star like Rhianna has one on. In fact, if she can wear one and it still attracts comments then you know how much of an impact they make.

It may seem like these rings are a relatively new design but, in truth they have long been favored by people who embrace the Gothic style of dress and they have other names such as full finger ring, Gothic ring and medieval ring to name but a few.

But, their secret is now out and with the likes of iconic designers such as Vivienne Westwood putting her own unique spin on them and bringing out her own version on this particular theme then the lid has been well and truly lifted and people

Metal For Engagement Rings

Since you are buying one of the engagement rings in a jewelry shop for your bride-to-be, first know about her choice. She may be more interested on traditional metals for the occasion as against your choice of the metal. As you enter a jewelry shop, the jeweler will show you the rings made white gold, yellow gold and platinum. These are three major metals used in making of today’s rings.

Yellow gold gives the rings its traditional look and is preferred in many cultures across the world on weddings. It provides a classical touch to the rings and this is the reason that the gold is a preferred choice for the wedding jewelry. When shopping for it, know that typically yellow gold rings are available in different carat sizes, typically 9k, 14k, and 18k, indicating purity of yellow gold and other metals in making the ring.

Thus, 18k yellow gold engagement rings mean that the metal has more yellow color than 9k. This also means that 18k is a bit harder and is more suitable for working women who have to wear the ring daily. For budget people, 18k ring is of greater cost as compared

Celtic Engagement Rings

When you’re looking for something with meaning, Celtic jewelry has the answer. In any aspect of fashion, there are sources of inspiration for each and every piece. The inspiration can come from a number of sources such as the natural world. Flowers, trees, gardens, fish, animals, landscapes to name a few can all act as catalysts for design ideas.

Other sources of inspiration can be color, shape, texture or material. Yet more can be from our youth, education, likes, dislikes and history. In the case of Celtic engagement rings, it’s history. Each design draws on two thousand years of culture and history. From before the time of Christ, the Celts were creating works of art for their own benefit, and for trade. Celtic art is still being produced to this day, with much of the original influence still present. That makes it one of the longest lived artistic movements around.

It is a very particular influence that uses specific characters to signify it’s Celtic origins. Shapes such as the Celtic cross, knot, Claddagh, love knot, inscriptions, pentacles and even plain metal rings. There is always a specific signature such as flowing lines, endless lines, and bold

Jewellery Appraisals

Components of many jewellery pieces trade on global markets. As a result, they are subject to significant fluctuations in their value over time. Changes in gold prices, the dollar, laws and taxes can all impact the value of your precious pieces.

In a worst-case scenario of loss or theft, it’s vital that you have regular, accurate jewellery appraisals. Insurance companies – like their counterparts around the world – need up to date opinions on the quality, design, authenticity and replacement value of the jewellery covered by your policy. By making a point every two to three years of scheduling jewellery appraisals, consumers can rest assured that their insurance coverage truly reflects the current replacement cost of their valuables.

And if you should forget, don’t worry. Your insurance company will be more than happy to remind you.

If you still have them, you can bring along copies of your most recent jewellery appraisals. Couples should also take any relevant certificates that relate to their items. While many people think that declared value is the most important aspect of an appraisal, obtaining a proper description of jewellery design and components (metal and stones) is crucial for establishing

White Gold Engagement Rings

White gold was developed as a more affordable choice to platinum. It was patented in 1915 by a German chemist, Karl Richter, but with the advent of World War I, production did not go ahead there and his patent was forgotten. A few years later in New York, the Belais brothers were awarded their patent for the metal using zinc and nickel as alloys. As platinum was restricted during the war, it meant that there was now a beautiful and affordable alternative to platinum. Their marketing campaign was so successful that their white gold engagement rings saw a huge rise in popularity in the 1920s.

There are advantages and disadvantages between choosing platinum or white gold. Engagement rings made from platinum are hypoallergenic but, although it is a hard metal, it is prone to scratches. As the ring ages, the platinum acquires a patina, which is duller white in appearance. This has the effect of making the diamond appear to sparkle brighter, which is one of the main advantages of platinum.

White gold, on the other hand, is harder as it is an alloy. It is also lighter to wear (platinum is a very dense metal)

Pendant Jewellery Trends

These shorter necklaces are super chic and ultra trendy! They usually hit the collar bone and come in innumerable styles. Whether it’s the pave beaded collars, multicolored necklaces or geometric shaped neckpiece, these chunky collars lighten up even the dullest outfits.

Tips: Not everyone can carry off the big bauble necklace. A collar for women with shorter neck is a big no-no. This will just make you look chubbier. This necklace suits best for women with longer necks. Also, if you are of slight build, opt for delicate chains rather than these heavy ones.

Avoid these chunky collars on heavy outfits. Mixing up different necklaces with a collar will just give you a messier look. Let the chunky collar do all the talking.

Chunky collars work best with open neck tops and dresses. A bright colored or neon collar on a simple white tee and a pair of jeggings is a simple yet a pretty look.

Pendant necklaces are back with a bang! From butterfly wings pendants, trinkets, hearts, flowers, geometric shapes, these pendants are the easiest way to add a bit of twist to your outfit.

Spot A False Diamond

The first thing you might try when testing a diamond for authenticity requires a sheet of glass or sandpaper. Real diamonds will leave a scratch on any of these surfaces, so if the shiny stone you are holding does not so much as make a dent, you may want to reconsider your purchase. Alternatively a magazine will do the trick, and if you are able to read the print through your ‘diamond’, return it to the vendor. A real diamond will distort the print and make it impossible to make out.

If these little tips have not convinced you one way or the other and you are still wondering if that stone you bought is real or not, there are a number of more specialised tests that you can run. For instance, real diamond engagement rings will not show up in an X-ray, so if anyone you know happens to be a radiologist, you can ask them for help. Similarly, you can try weighing the stone against another type of gem and compare their weights, as a real diamond should be lighter than your average alternative gemstone of the same size.

Finally, you may buy a

Loose Diamonds

The cut of certified loose diamond determines not only the overall shape of the stone, but it also includes the many facets that are cut within the stone. These facets are what give the diamond its luster and sparkle that catch eyes wherever you go. There are professional diamond cutters in the world who take rough diamonds and make them beautiful. A rough diamond is one that has just been excavated from the earth and is not very pretty at all.

The color of a diamond is determined by which elements it was exposed to underground while it was being formed by the earth. Boron, for example, makes diamond blue. Of course there are many variations of white loose diamonds. The whiter the diamond, the more valuable it is.

The clarity of a diamond deals with how perfect or flawless the diamond is. Loose diamonds are made by the earth under extreme conditions, so it makes sense that they would get a little scuffed throughout their journey to the surface of the earth. These scuffs take away from the value of the stone, but most of the time, they cannot be detected by the human eye.

Popular Diamond Shapes

Round Brilliant Cut – Brides who prefer traditional things should opt for round cut diamonds for her engagement ring. This cut is most popular for the reason that it is designed to produce maximum sparkle. Round brilliant cut has been popular since 1920.

Princess Cut – It is the most popular fancy diamond shape. Created in 1990, this diamond shape is known for its ability to radiate fire and brilliance. Princess cut diamonds are pyramid shape and have square top with pointed corners. Rings encrusted with princess cut diamonds are modern alternates to traditional brilliant cut diamond rings.

Emerald Cut – Also called as step cut, the clipped corners of an emerald cut diamond helps the prongs to hold the stone in a perfect way. This cut has few facets as compared to round and princess cut and lay emphasis on a diamond’s clarity. This cut is perfect for women looking for unusual, unique, stylish and sophisticated diamond for their engagement ring. Diamond with this cut has flat rectangular top with chiseled corners.

Oval Cut – This cut has the same fire and brilliance of a round cut diamond but with a contemporary edge. Created

Identifying Antique Rings

Victorian rings are a top choice coming from the 1836 to 1901 period. These antique rings usually join flowers, bows and hearts and are romantic and feminine. Opals became a popular stone choice during this period and you will find a wide choice of rings designs complete with opals to make a spectacular and memorable impact.

Another very popular choice when it comes to rings is art Noumea. The art Noumea period ran from 1890 to 1919 and included beautiful designs with a choice of stones. This was a very unique period that when wearing one of these rings, you are guaranteed to make a statement. It is important to note that not everyone is going to like this period or the pieces from this period. It is a unique taste which can be welcomed when looking for something completely different to what everyone else has.
