Halo Engagement Rings

Featured

A halo setting features a center stone, which can be either a diamond or a colored stone, encircled by twinkling small diamonds. Halo engagement rings can feature a center diamond of any shape, however round, square, and oval diamonds are the most popular.  The outline of small diamonds can also be of any shape but round and square are the most popular.

With so much customization and sparkle, halo engagement rings have become the preferred choice of brides-to-be. The unique thing about halo settings is, a smaller center diamond creates an illusion of a larger size center diamond, adding more sparkle, while a larger center diamond creates a striking balance of being both delicate and bold.

There are endless ways of customizing halo engagement rings. You can add double row of diamonds to add double sparkle; this setting is commonly known as a double halo. Choosing right setting for your halo will make lot of difference in how your ring will look. A prong setting (classic setting) or bezel setting goes well with halo. One of our designs includes pink gold weaving around the center to create an unconventional look. Our split shank halo engagement ring can be customized with two-tone gold to give it a distinct look.

Solitaire rings with a big center rock are every bride-to-be’s fancy but not everyone can have it; a halo engagement ring does the trick and provides a bigger and bolder look with a smaller diamond.

Featured

Gold along with Silver and Platinum are trading multiyear lows while we are writing this article. And we always see this as an opportunity for our customers to come by our stores and buy what they have either been planning or have desired to have.

Gold hit its lowest level since February 2010, after a low of $1088 an ounce yellow metal recovered a bit and was trading at $1105 an ounce.

Platinum was even worst hit and sunk below $1000, its lowest in the last six years. Reason sited for this is a perception that supply was increasing while demand was low. At day’s end it was traded at $980.

Silver was trading at $14.83 which is the lowest price for silver in the last six years. Silver seems to have been affected in general by the weakness of precious metal and commodities.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our store. We have a huge selection of bridal rings, engagement rings, earrings, pendants etc.

3D Printer For Your Next Piece Of Jewelry

Featured

Chuck Hull in 1984 created first working 3D printer. Its a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.  Imagine a machine that could disassemble old unwanted objects, and use the materials to print new objects — all in the comfort of your own home. Though the technology is 30 years old, it has now come into light due to falling price of the printer.

Recently people began to use 3D printers for creating anything they like, this includes  iPad stands, guitars , board games, shoes and clothes, jewelry, even guns. You just need to design the product you want on computer and just print it in 3-D printer. You can refer below video on how 3D Printing works by  Marina Mellinas.

It’s still rather niche, but 3D printers just got backing from one of the biggest vanity items around – jewelry.

Making jewelry with a 3D printer is important to the overall 3D printer ecosystem. The main benefit of manufacturing jewelry through 3D printing is that companies can make custom jewelry for clients for low cost.

Jewelry with minute and filigree designs require a workshop where liquefied metal are pored into molds and costs Dollars$$$, whereas the same piece of jewelry can be prepared with comparatively low cost using these printers. Although the resulting pieces often appear to be complex, the process of their creation did not need to be time-consuming.

The use of 3-D printing to make really precise, miniature pieces of items in jewelry, and availability of mass production, may also drive up interest for 3D printing among the average consumer thus leading to even faster adoption.

3D- Printing technology have also proved as boon for fashion lovers, it helps designers turn intangible ideas into tangible attire by giving them a means to create their dreams.

Dutch designer Iris van Herpen debuted two 3D-printed outfits, a dress and cape/skirt combo in Paris Fashion Week this year. She did it in 2010 and again in 2011.

Not only fashion and Jewelry industry, 3D- Printing is spreading it’s roots in almost every field and the day is not far when it will become hard to imagine what else is 3-D printing good for !

Mother’s Day, is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society that is observed in different forms throughout the world.
The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914

Anna’s mother Ann Jarvis had founded Mothers’ Day Work Clubs in five cities to improve sanitary and health conditions. Their Clubs also treated wounds, fed, and clothed both Union and Confederate soldiers with neutrality. On May 12, 1907, two years after her mother’s death, Anna held a memorial to her mother and thereafter embarked upon a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday. She succeeded in making this nationally recognized in 1914. The International Mother’s Day Shrine was established in Grafton to commemorate her accomplishment. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts.

Mothers have the most challenging and the most rewarding job in the world. It’s almost a full time job that starts right from the existence of child inside her. It takes real commitment and hard work to be a mother. Being a homemaker, she handle raising children, by starting out in the morning to feed a child and throughout the day handle the children; feeding them, giving them naps, cleaning up their messes, teaching them how to read, write, do math, and other life skills.

Mother is an inseparable and important part of life. She is a teacher to teach ethics and values of life, She is a friend to whom we can turn any time and share all our feelings with a trust that she will back-stab us, She is also a good Advisor because, she is one who teach us not to give up when things get hard and also punish on wrong doing, but will not anyone else harm her Baby.
To be a mother means commitment and sacrifice, the greatest of commitment and sacrifice. Being a mother and homemaker is the greatest and noblest thing that any woman can do. They are energetic and strong woman who has given us the right direction of life. She has a kindly heart to tolerate our mistakes and give us endless love but ask for nothing in return.

She, in real sense is our SUPERMAN.

There are no words in the world that can describe her or everything that she has done for us. But we can definitely try to thank her. We cannot do it by giving her gifts, money, land or anything, the only way to thank her is to give her love, care and happiness.

Whether she’s your own mom, the mom of your children, or just a mom you love and admire, be sure to tell her how important she is to you with a meaningful Mother’s Day gift.
