Educate Yourself on the 4Cs of Diamonds

The quality and price of a diamond is determined by four important factors – Clarity, Color, Cut and Carat-weight, aka the 4Cs of diamonds.

Clarity refers to the lack of flaws – internal (inclusions) as well as surface (blemishes). Diamonds are graded as FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2 and I3 in decreasing order of clarity, with FL being completely flawless and I3 exhibiting obvious inclusions.

Color is undesirable in white diamonds as they impede their refractive and reflective properties. GIA devised a scale to grade color in white diamonds that is widely accepted in the industry. It starts with D and progresses alphabetically to Z. D grade diamonds are completely colorless (and therefore rare) while Z grade diamonds exhibit a faint yellowish color.

Cut refers to the reflective quality of a polished diamond. People usually confuse cut with shape, but here it does not refer to that. Diamonds of the same shape and carat-weight can have different qualities of cut. The ideally cut diamond will appear brighter and more brilliant, while a poorly cut stone will not dazzle as well.

Carat-weight refers to the weight of the diamond. Higher the carat-weight, more will be the price of the diamond.

GIA Certification

Most diamond retailers sell jewelry and diamonds certified by the Gemological Institute of America. A GIA certificate provides every relevant detail about the jewelry item, from carat-weight, cut quality, clarity grade, and color to current worth and appraisal. Moreover, a GIA certificate ensures that a diamond is genuine and graded properly.

70’S JEWELRY: HOOP EARRINGS

70s were a little embarrassing, but in a good way. Everybody (and we mean EVERYBODY) was trying out new things. The world was changing. Some of the trends that 70s brought, we are happy to forget. (HINT: chest hair, butterfly collars and SIDEBURNS), but there’s no denying that the decade brought with it impactful fashion novelties.
Of all the trends, the most I’m happy survived is the hoop. Big hoop earrings, yes.

Read this article by Sarah Royce-Greensill that appreciates the hoop’s return to vogue:

The return of the 70’s hoop.

Three cheers for hoop earrings; they’ve finally shaken off their bad rep of the Nineties and Noughties – when they were more often associated with morally-dubious Hollyoaks characters – and have become a staple in the most stylish of jewellery boxes. That’s thanks in no small part to fashion’s penchant for all things The seventies – since hoops the size of dinner plates appeared on the catwalks of A/W14-15, jewellers have embraced the oversized and created ever more bright and beautiful variations on the theme. See full post here:


You know, a 70s style hoop earring that brings your wife or your mom to nostalgic tears of joy might just be the perfect birthday gift! Just saying.

How to Stack Your Rings

Stackable rings is the latest trend to hit the jewelry game and that can elevate your outfit in an instant. Here’re some tips to help you carry the trend.

In the following article by Amanda Holstein, she explains in detail that there’s no such thing as too many rings and inspire you to pull off the latest jewelry trend.

3 Ways to Stack Your Rings

While the arm party had its well-deserved phase, there’s a new party to celebrate nearby. I’m talking about stacked rings. Generally, I’m not one to wear a ton of jewelry. I have my everyday pieces (yes, those include friendship bracelets), my go-to diamond studs, and a rotation of delicate necklaces, rings are quickly becoming a staple as well. While one or two are nice, piling on the rings can really make a statement — one you can pull off on the daily. Find out which look works best for you.

If you want a look you can include in your everyday routine, try this little combination. Choose 4-6 delicate rings, particularly ones that have some meaning to you. The California ring on my left hand always makes me happy (thanks, Tab!). Try a set of 2-3 that you can stack together on one finger, then space out a couple more. For everyday wear, I like to stick to my pointer, middle, and ring fingers. Just make sure not to have a symmetrical look on each hand. See full post here:

Your look will feel more comfortable if you wear your smaller rings on top and your heavier statement rings on the bottom, but it’s just a matter of personal taste.

If you’re one of the thousands planning (or hoping for) to buy a diamond in the near future, don’t head to the jeweler shopping without reading these top diamond buying tips.

In the following article by K.S Anthony, he explains in detail what you should understand about diamonds before you go shopping for one.

4 Things Everyone Needs To Know About Buying Diamonds

The best diamonds are colorless. Fancy colored diamonds — the blues, bright yellows, and pinks — are a separate (and much more expensive) category, so we won’t discuss them here.
Diamond color is graded by professionals certified by various gem certification organizations (The GIA and IGI are two that you’ll hear mentioned frequently) on a scale that goes from D to Z. Grading is done by eye with the stone loose on a bright white background. This is how you should look at the diamond, even if it’s set: on a white piece of paper.
Grades D-F is considered colorless.
Grades G-J is considered near-colorless.
Grades K-M is called faint yellow.
Grades N-R is very light yellow.
Grades S-Z is light yellow.
Most stones in the D-G range are going to look almost identical to an untrained eye. At around H, you may start to see what professionals call “warmth” in the stone: you’ll see a very slight tint. After H, that tint becomes much more pronounced. The yellows here aren’t exactly a desirable shade: the diamonds often just look dirty. See full post here:
