  • Buying Yellow Diamonds in Melbourne: Here Are 3 essential tips to help you.

     

    Yellow diamonds, which were earlier reserved for royalties, or worse considered as low quality substitutes for white diamonds, have now become incredibly popular and highly sought after in modern times.

     

    According to Melbourne jewellers, the ever rising prices of white diamonds and the increasing desire of colored diamonds, has given a huge boost to yellow diamond sales.

     

    If you’re planning to buy yellow diamonds for your engagement ring in Melbourne, here are a few things to assist you along your journey.

     

    GIA color grades for yellow diamonds

     

    Yellow diamonds aren’t really yellow, but adorn a canary color, which the GIA calls “Fancy Yellow.” These diamonds are among the rarest and come in 4 main qualities:

     

    The lighter grade – Fancy Light Yellow
    The medium grade – Fancy Yellow
    A strong grade – Fancy Intense Yellow
    The rarest – Fancy Vivid Yellow

     

    Radiant, Cushion, Pear and Oval Cuts are the best for Yellow diamonds

     

    Whenever people buy diamonds, the ‘sparkle’ is the biggest consideration, who often choose the round cut specifically for this reason.

     

    But why it is that we never see yellow diamonds cut round? The short answer is that the radiant and cushion cut are known to show much better color than rounds. This means a fancy yellow diamond will not look as yellow in a round as it would in other shapes.

  • This concept piece is a celebration of life and success...

     

    Featuring a 2ct Natural Colombian Emerald set in 18ct Rose Gold, with premium Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds in a micro pave setting, individually handset in 18ct White Gold. With it's defined geometric lines following the natural shape of the Emerald, it makes it a truly unique piece.

    Here's another classic example of a timeless collection of bridal jewels that we have recently crafted for someone. The central is a 2.50ct Round Brilliant Cut Diamond, carefully handcrafted in 18ct White Gold.

  • How to Crack the Best Deal on Diamond Rings

     

    We all love our diamond rings to sparkle, but when it comes to the actual purchase, we’re not willing to blindly part with our hard earned money. Many will say if you know more about the 4C’s of diamonds, cracking the best deal on them wouldn’t be a problem. Let’s find out how:

     

     

    Diamond Carat

     

    The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. The bigger the diamond, generally the more pricey it will be.

     

    Here’s a smart idea to keep in mind when you’re on the hunt: Let’s say you’ve always wanted a 2ct Diamond. First establish: Do I want the look of a 2ct Diamond, or do I want to tell everyone I have a 2ct Diamond?’ If the look is more important to you, you can opt for a 1.8-1.9ct with excellent proportions that will help it look like a 2ct Diamond, without paying the premium. This will save you a bundle, and applies to other popular carat weights too.

     

    Please feel free to ask us any questions about this too.

     

     

    Diamond Color

     

    The color of a diamond is measured by how close it comes to being white. The color of a diamond is rated alphabetically - D, E, and F being higher on the scale and Z being lowest. Colorless diamonds are the most expensive because they allow the greatest reflection of light and give maximum brilliance.

     

    Grades like H, I and J may have less shimmer, but they will still look good, and the price can come down by a whopping 25-30%.

     

     

    Diamond Clarity

     

    Diamonds have blemishes inside and outside, which may impact on their clarity. GIA, a world authority on diamonds has prepared an 11 grade scale to measure the clarity. On this scale, F stands for “Flawless” and you only find the rarest of diamonds meeting this criterion.

     

    Other options on the scale include:

     

    IF – Internally Flawless

    VVSI-VVS2 – Very Very Slightly Included

    VSI-VS2 – Very Slightly Included

    SI1-SI2 – Slightly Included

    P1-P3 – Visible Inclusions Without Eye Loupe

     

     

    Diamond Cut

     

    You may compromise on any of the above C’s, but not with the cut. It is the cut which gives the diamond a brilliant sparkle. From the GIA scale for cut, opt for “excellent” or “very good”. Opting for “good” also means a lack of luster in the diamond, but of course, a big money saver.

     

    The only instance where this doesn’t apply is when it comes to natural Yellow Diamonds. You can opt for a ‘good’ cut with them, as the even distribution of Colour is what’s most important.

     

    I hope this helps you along your journey, and if you have any thoughts or questions, please feel free to contact us!

  • Engagement Rings Are For Brides Who Are Bold, Elegant and Self-Assured

     

    An emerald engagement ring is a semblance of confidence and prestige. An emerald will look gorgeous on brides who are strong, self-assured and yet like things simple. Anyone who considers themselves to be more shy and demure seems to not feel as comfortable with emerald jewellery.

     

    What are your thoughts?

     

    Emerald is Elegant But Has No Sparkle 

     

    Unlike the traditional Round Brilliant Cut Diamond, the Emerald Cut is not associated with sparkle and luster. Consider this option only if your bride prefers boldness and elegance over loud sparkle.

     

    Every Emerald Cut Diamond has anywhere between 50 to 80 facets that adorn a step cut pattern. Because its crown and pavilion are shallow, the Emerald will not exude a great luster.

     

    Ring Setting For Emerald Jewellery

     

    The truncated corners of the Emerald keep it secure in most settings. See here, which setting will be best for you:

     

    Claw: A four claw setting is ideal as it gives maximum light and exposure to the Emerald Cut, helping in bringing out its natural beauty.

     

    Pave: A Pave setting will add extra bling over the ring and will not contrast as well with an Emerald. Such a setting is more ideal for Round Brilliant Cuts, Princess Cuts, Cushion Cuts etc.

     

    Three stone: A popular option for the Emerald is the three stone setting. The most timeless, classic diamond rings will comprise of two smaller Emerald cut diamonds perfectly in proportion on either side of the centre Emerald.

     

    Lastly, if you’re price conscious, but of course still want something precious for the bride to be, an Emerald is a fantastic option as it is one of the most affordable diamond engagement ring cuts that are available.

  • 5 Reasons Why Women Love Diamonds

     

     

    Regardless of whether a man is chivalrous or a beast, he can win the heart of a woman he desires with diamonds. Diamonds are gorgeous, expensive, and for many of us a once in a lifetime investment. Even in societies where bridal wealth is frowned upon, a woman will not be able to resist touching and enjoying the looks of the precious stone... Women are biologically attracted to bright, shiny things!

     

    Here are 5 other reasons why women belonging to any culture, love diamonds:

     

    It Shows How Serious A Guy Is For Them

     

    Girls always love being spoilt. If a man is willing to forgo a respectable amount of his salary solely on a diamond engagement ring, it shows he’s serious about his intentions. There may be other means of showing your love, but we bet there isn’t a better way of proving it.

     

    She Can Always Show It Off To Her Friends

     

    If your girl has a normal circle of girl friends, be assured they’ll judge you by your purchasing power. This is when she’ll be very proud of flaunting her diamond ring to her friends and also make them envious of your love and commitment for her.

     

    Diamonds Are Forever

     

    Any man presenting his girl with a unique sapphire or emerald engagement ring signifies that he sees her as part of his future. The presentation of a personally selected diamond is also a symbolic action of his feelings and intentions, the diamond is a symbol of their journey together, to last forever.

     

    It Makes Her Feel, She Deserves the Best

     

    The hype about diamonds being a girl’s best friend emerged from the historical advertising campaign by DeBeer’s in the 1930s. They created diamonds to be the symbol of eternal love. Ever since then, women have felt more worthy of receiving diamond rings. Let’s be honest here, if a woman isn’t interested in diamonds, she’ll certainly want something equally expensive, like Emeralds or Sapphires!

  • 6 of the Smartest Tips for Buying Engagement Rings

     

    You've finally found who you believe is the “one” for you. You may have asked a family member for their approval in marriage and may have even planned the perfect proposal. Nice work! But hey, what about the engagement ring?

     

    Finding the perfect engagement ring in Melbourne can be an overwhelming task. After all, there’s tremendous pressure on this specific purchase. It’s the ultimate symbol of love for your partner, and also a token of your willingness to take this relationship to the next level. Plus, you cannot help but consider that your fiancé will be flaunting off their engagement ring in front of family and friends.

     

    For many people, engagement rings, whether diamond rings or sapphire rings for their love will be their first experience in the world of jewellery. So, to help you avoid getting intimidated with new terms and concepts from jewellery stores out there, mentioned below is the ultimate guide to help you purchase an engagement ring in Melbourne to help make your partner will flip over.

    Let’s get started!

     

    1.       Establish Your Price Point

    This is the very first thing you need to sort out before stepping into a jewellery store in Melbourne or any other place for that matter. Generally when someone walks into a jewellery store to purchase an engagement ring, sales people tend to do a cheeky thing – they make you believe that the amount you love your partner is tied to the amount you spend on a ring. (This is ridiculous in our opinion)

    Well as they say, follow the standard rule of saving your three month’s salary. However this old rule doesn't really apply these days, whatever you feel you wish to allocate towards your special purchase, there is something out there for you… There’s no need to spend beyond your means.

     

    2.       Certification Matters

    The top three diamond certification bodies are GIA/HRD/IGI. Diamonds ( loose diamonds in retail or wholesale, for example ) sold under any other certification body may cost substantially less but they may not be respected in the Diamond industry. Also, they may not be as strict in their grading standards.

    We mainly deal GIA certified Diamonds, as their grading system is of a higher standard.

    It’s always advisable to be aware of the Jewellery houses and wholesale jewellers in Melbourne that sell Diamonds under their own in-house certification as these may not be independent. So, don’t forget to check the certificates and ask the question before buying your dream engagement ring.

     

    3.       Consider All C’s

    The four vital C’s – Cut, Color, Carat and Clarity – each affect the price of the diamond and should therefore be considered individually. According to the experts, Cut is the most important of all the four, as it brings out the fire and brilliance of the Diamond. A great cut can provide flexibility on the other C’s, making color and clarity less desirable.

    In fact, even the stones graded Sl1 (seven levels below flawless) can seem perfect to naked eye if the Diamond is cut exceptionally well, or if the inclusions are in the ‘right spot’. Respected jewellery artisans believe that the overall ring setting also helps in concealing many Diamond imperfections.

     

    4.       Watch Out For Fluorescence   

    After the four C’s, experts always recommend considering other essential factors such as fluorescence. It generally refers to reaction between Diamond and Ultra Violet (UV) light. Fluorescence can make a diamond appear milky on a sunny day or blue under artificial UV light.

    In fact, there is a scale of fluorescence – nil, slight/faint, medium, strong and very strong. Experts recommend that you should always prefer Diamond with nil to medium as prices generally drop with stronger fluorescence.

     

    5.       Prefer a Fancy Shape

    Round Diamonds are the most popular choice for engagement rings and this is also one of the reasons they have a higher price compared to other shapes. You can save significantly on your dream engagement ring by opting for alternative shapes, such as Cushion Cuts, Emerald Cuts in Emerald Jewellery or famous Oval and Pear Shape designs in Sapphire Jewellery.

     

    6.       Platinum versus White Gold

    One of the golden questions you will have to make throughout your journey...

    White Gold is slightly lighter than Platinum, and has a great memory. Meaning it can take a few good knocks and still bounce back to its original shape… Platinum on the other hand is heavier, and malleable. After a few knocks, you need to work the metal a little more to bring it back to its original shape.

    Platinum’s colour turns to a more dull gun-metal grey within a very short duration of its wear. Although some jewellers promote Platinum over White Gold, this has nothing to do with its properties. Platinum being the most pure metal, makes it much more expensive than Gold. You’ll find a majority of jewellers and designers prefer White Gold as their choice for engagement rings, and dress pieces.

     

    Please feel free to ask us about the premium mix of White Gold that we work with too.

  • Most Classic Engagement Ring Styles

     

     

    When it comes to purchasing an ideal engagement ring in Melbourne or elsewhere, endless choices and possibilities can sometimes make the whole exercise confusing and difficult. But you can narrow down your search by brushing up your knowledge on some of the most popular ring styles.

    Let’s take a look at some!

     

    1.   The Solitaire

    A widely accepted timeless and classic engagement ring style, the Solitaire is an elegant and slender band featuring a single and distinguished centre Diamond.

    Solitaire is a Latin word, where ‘sol’ means single, thus making it symbolic reflection of ‘one true love’. No wonder the Solitaire Engagement Ring is a favorite amongst many.

     

    2.   Fancy Shapes

    There’s an abundance of fancy shapes in Coloured Gemstones, or Premium Diamonds to suit the most individual and particular of tastes.

    A classic yet distinctive piece would make for one perfect engagement ring, or celebration jewel.

    You can also opt for the second most famous shape, the Princess Cut; either in Emerald Jewellery or Sapphire Jewellery.

     

    3.   The Halo

    Halo rings have been gaining widespread popularity amongst the bride’s-to-be for quite some time now. For they help lift the brilliance and presence of your central stone and also give it a timeless, feminine touch.

     

    In fact, many wholesale diamond sellers in Melbourne are largely promoting the sought-after look of the Halo engagement ring styles, as many women instantly fall in love with the idea of getting a slightly bigger look out of their jewel.

     

    Featuring a beautiful centre stone, the classic and gorgeous Halo Rings are artfully accented featuring individually hand set smaller Diamonds.

     

    When on your journey for rings or diamonds in Melbourne, make sure to shop around, and get a feel for whom best understands you, and what is important to you.
