Top 3 Engagement Styles

Having trouble choosing the perfect engagement ring for your fiancé? If you are not familiar with the myriad of styles and settings available, you are in for a treat. There are styles to fit every girl and every personality type. Whether she is fun and outgoing or more the silent type with depth under the surface, there is a ring for her out there! See below for a list of engagement ring choices to suit your gal.

1. Diamond Halo Solitaire: This ring emits elegance in every curve. With the decorative band on the side matching the halo perfectly, this ring is usually chosen for the classier woman with a refined, chic taste in jewelry. Motek Diamonds would be more than happy to assist you in choosing the right metal and casting affect for your Solitaire Diamond.

2. Oval Cut Diamond: The oval stone cut engagement ring usually relies on a left to right setting. This solitaire look makes the ring even more stunning and interesting than the regular round cut. A perfect option for a woman who has a little flair but is not looking for anything too audacious.

3. Pear Stone Diamond: This ring receives rave responses for any woman wearing it. A pear stone is sure to catch the eye of everyone around the owner. Many say the different shape speaks of sensuality. With the recent surge in vintage engagement ring styles, the pear has had a huge comeback.

Color

 fancy-color-diamonds_2281.9dfcd

When a customer thinks about diamond color, they think about the color grade and how close the diamond is to being 100% colorless.  As a diamond jeweler, it means something a little bit different.  Let me explain.

diamond-central-chart-of-diamond-colors

It is common for diamond labs to grade a diamonds color from D-Z

In general the closer a diamond is to being colorless the more valuable it is because it is more desirable.  However once the diamond exceeds the Z color grade, it is known as a fancy color.  Fancy yellow is the most common and are extremely expensive and rare.  They look neon yellow in person and are quite exquisite.

What color range should I buy?

To the naked eye D-H are indistinguishable.  At Motek Diamonds we provide free diamond cleaning, ring cleaning, and prong tightenings for life.  You would be surprised at just how dirty rings can get from lotion, dirt, oil, etc.  Even when they clean them at home with kits, they never clean the ring and diamond returning it to it’s original brilliance.  The reason I say this is that one week after a new purchase or a ring cleaning, the true color of the diamond isn’t visible from the naked eye making the range more like D-J all looking the exact same.

Diamond rings, especially wedding rings and engagement rings are timeless.  No matter the cost and design, there is sentimental attachment to jewelry because it’s something that is often passed on generation to generation.  The Christmas holidays are nearing and now is the perfect time to buy a piece of diamonds jewelry for your loved one.

For a lady, a classy man can benefit from diamond cufflinks.  The beauty about diamond cufflinks for men is that they aren’t as expensive as they look.  They stand out like thunder and will make you a happy lady.

Diamond Polishing

diampolish-file3

Imagine for a moment that you are walking in the middle of the forest and you happen to look down and see small clear glasslike stones at your feet.  They look insignificant so you might just kick them aside and go keep walking; and yet this insignificant-looking thing might easily be a diamond of great value.

Diamonds found in nature are not that impressive.  They aren’t always clear and don’t sparkle.  It is in polishing that a goodly part of the price of a diamond is acquired; for the art of turning a rough diamond into a glittering brilliant is a long process requiring a superlative degree of skill.

Diamonds are roughly shaped to maximize it’s value and must be finished by producing facets which give sparkle to the diamond.  This is known as polishing.

Diamond dust, mixed with olive oil, is used held in contact with an edge of the diamond for several hours to produce one facet.  Diamonds can have 58+ facets and this process can take up to one week.  This slow shaping of the diamond keeps it’s shape intact without affecting splintering into smaller pieces.

As you can see diamond polishing has more to do with creating the 58+ sides of a diamond than “wax on – wax off” polishing your car.

And as always, http://www.motekdiamonds.com has the best selection of loose diamonds, wedding rings, and engagement rings.
