How To Care For Your Diamonds

Diamonds are durable and strong, but should be cared for as though they were fine breakable china or more fragile gems. They can chip or scratch if you're not careful, and they can get quite dirty with oils from your skin and cosmetics, hair sprays or perfumes.

A Diamond's Clarity

Diamond clarity is one the 4Cs of diamond qualities. It refers to any flaws, or inclusions in the diamond, and how visible or detectable they are. Inclusions can be foreign substances, or minute cracks or flaws. It also refers to the appearance of any surface flaws or scratches.

Planning a Wedding and Keeping Your Sanity!

Planning a wedding is never as stress-free and painless as some imagine. Don't we always under estimate the amount of time and energy it takes to pull anything together let alone a wedding? All things being equal when planning anything and everything the blood, sweat and tears it takes really does depend on the size and scope of the occasion on tap.

The Perfect Diamond Ring

The smart groom-to-be does his research before buying his fiancée a diamond ring! There are more styles and cuts to choose from than ever before. It's not enough to be educated about the four Cs of diamonds - cut, color, clarity and carats. Now there are all types of diamond cuts and settings to choose from.

Are Diamonds Really Indestructible?

Diamonds are among the hardest substances on earth; in fact they use diamonds and diamond dust to cut diamonds. Other gemstones are hard as well, but not nearly as hard as a diamond. Diamonds and other gemstones are measured by the Mohs scale. It runs from 10 (hardest) down to 1 (softest).

A Diamond's Fire

The term fire is commonly used to describe a diamond, but what does it refer to? The ancient Greeks thought that fire in a diamond symbolized the eternal flame of love. Fire in a diamond is the dispersed light that appears as rainbow-like flashes of color.

Engagement Proposal - Put a Ring on it!

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge fan of a great engagement proposal. As Julia Roberts would say HUGE! As it turns out I won't get an engagement proposal or wedding and that's by choice. But I'm a softy at heart and no matter how simplistic or difficult I can't get me enough of a happy proposal.

Color Of Diamonds

When it comes to the 4Cs of diamonds, color, or lack of it, is an especially important characteristic. Diamonds are given letter grades to denote the level of color, starting with the letter D for a flawless, colorless diamond. Why D, and not C, B, or A?

Carats Equals Weight?

Many people equate the term carat with the size of a diamond, and as carat size increases, so will the carat weight. But the operative word there is weight. Carat refers to the weight of a diamond and is equal to roughly 200 milligrams which is less than a ¼ of an ounce.
