  • The Rose Cut Diamond Trend – A Deeper Look into a Gem

    Rose cut engagement ring_46-17x1000 Rose cut engagement ring_43-45

    Above, a custom made rose cut diamond engagement ring we just presented to a client. We made a solid base with a design on it and rhodium plated it so it reflects white in a random pattern. Yellow gold adds to its popular appeal.

    What is a rose cut diamond? 🌹

    The rose cut adds a certain unmistakeable and captivating depth and dimension. A transparent light catcher with a rich history.

    The rose cut was created in the 1500’s and could be seen frequently in the Georgian and Victorian eras. Similar to other antique cuts of its time, rose cut diamonds were crafted by hand and meant to dazzle under candlelight, which they did. (Rose cuts performs amazingly in low light conditions.)

    How would you describe the appearance and appeal of a rose cut diamond?

    Rose cut diamonds have a magical appearance, inviting and almost hypnotic. They allow a deeper look into the gem itself.  They don’t have that disco-ball bling of full cut gems but make up for it with a more complex look into the gem itself.

    Rose cuts also have a larger area and appear visually larger than a gem of the same carat weight.

    Why does clarity count when choosing a rose cut diamond?

    Because a rose cut gem is transparent, there is little to distract the eye from flaws and inclusions. When it comes to choosing a rose cut diamond, go for superior clarity rather than a higher color grade. It’s all about a crystal clear look inside the diamond.

    How can I have a rose cut custom design engagement ring like this, please? 🌹

  • Thank you so much for putting together this sweet ring. It made my birthday extra special, and I look forward to years of staring down at this beauty!

    Margie,

    It’s here, and I adore it!

    Margie, the ring is so beautiful! I think the width of the band nestles perfectly between the prongs and is a complementary size for the stone. I LOVE that this chunky little stone fills out its space so well. This is my first time seeing the 4H moissanite in person, and it really is gorgeous. The workmanship on the ring is wonderful, too. I couldn’t be happier.

  • The Magic of Mom’s Jewelry Box

    I still recall routing through my mom’s jewelry box when I was little. It seemed like a treasure chest of highly magical items, only reserved for her intended wear.

    Well…not only. Because I happily piled her beloved pieces and topped it off with a little of her favorite red lipstick. Voila…now I was grown up and pretty, just like her!

    Years later, my mother bestowed her daughters with her jewelry, shortly before she died. I chose an unusual pendant necklace made of 18k gold. The pendant itself looks something like a strange sun setting. Or an octopus. I haven’t quite figured it out.

    Whenever people see it, they ask, “What is that?”

    I never have an answer and ask for their interpretation.

    “An insect?”

    “A Greek symbol?”

    “The spokes of a crooked wheel?”

    It’s not my favorite piece of jewelry. But it’s my mom’s. And on days when I miss her, I wear it with pride. Because it doesn’t really matter whether I like the jewelry or not; it just matters that it was hers. 

    If you believe in this kind of thing, her vibration, her “energy” is still contained within the piece. Many psychics have used jewelry as a divination method, when say, trying to locate a missing person. Because jewelry absorbs a certain essence of us and remains there for a long, long time. I don’t know about all that. I just know it feels right when I wear it.

    As a “grown up” I have a jewelry box of my own now. When I open it, I harken back to that little girl. Sure she’s grown, but she still believes in magical treasures contained neatly in a box.

  • What is a Facet and Why it Matters When you Buy your Engagement Ring

    You’ve heard of facets before but now, as you’re poised to purchase an engagement ring, you feel like you should know more. We get it! So here’s a fast and furious lesson so you can be better informed.

    The short story? Facets are the flat faces on geometric shapes. Gemstones have facets cut into them to improve appearance and reflecting light. Facets are seen in nature as well. Many crystals naturally grow in faceted shapes.

    A faceting machine is used when cutting a gem–an art in and of itself. When its done right, there should a balance of brilliance (internal reflections of light) and dispersion (commonly referred to as “fire”). Lastly, those stunning brightly colored flashes from a gem, termed “scintillation.”

    There are literally hundreds of facet arrangements but the most well-known is the the round brilliant cut, a cut with a long history:

    This first early version of what would become the modern Brilliant Cut is said to have been devised by an Italian named Peruzzi, sometime in the late 17th century. Later on, the first angles for an “ideal” cut diamond were calculated by Marcel Tolkowsky in 1919. Slight modifications have been made since then, but angles for “ideal” cut diamonds are still similar to Tolkowsky’s formula. [Source: Wikipedia]

    Round brilliants cut before the “ideal” angles are commonly referred to as “early round brilliant cut” or “Old European brilliant cut.” These cuts are considered by some as poorly cut, at least by today’s standards.

    Other gem cuts with a long history include the “Old Mine Cut” which is similar to early versions of the round brilliant, but has a rectangular outline. Or the Rose Cut which is a simple cut consisting of a flat back and various numbers of angled facets on the crown, creating a faceted dome.

    Hopefully that gives you a better idea of facets. But we’re here if you have any questions!

     

  • How to Spot Fake Jewelry Using Household Items

    An interesting look at simple ways to test jewelry using household items like a magnet, vinegar, chalk and iodine, among other things. Good video for those who shop at thrift or antique stores frequently and want a quick method to test for authenticity.

     

  • Famous Paintings that Included Amazing Jewelry

    Sure we can look at jewelry found thousands of years ago through museum glass, but there’s something about jewelry used in a painting that gives us a more intimate look. Let’s take a piece from The Jewelry Loupe that uses this example.

    The artist: Dante Gabriel Rossetti (English, 1828–1882).

    The painting: Bocca Baciata (Lips That Have Been Kissed), Oil on Panel

    Isn’t it exquisite? The model (one of the artist’s favorite) is wearing a Revivalist gold necklace and earrings in addition to an earring attached to beautiful head of hair. Apparently the artist collected Revivalist jewelry himself so its no surprise it made its way into his paintings. Perhaps he even loaned several of his pieces to this model, for the sake of his work.

    Revivalist jewelry, popular in the later half of the nineteenth century, consisted mainly of adaptations of earlier jewelry styles.
