Vintage Square Emerald Cut Diamond Rings

Made most popular during the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s, the square emerald cut diamond rings in vintage styles are making a huge comeback in recent times. Highly preferred as precious gifts, engagement rings or part of the wedding jewelry trousseau, these antique styled rings bring with them a touch of romance and classic elegance. Unique and enticing, the emerald cut has a charm much different than that of the princess cut or the round brilliant cut. Due to its square shape and step cut design, the facets are square in shape and appear arranged in parallel lines on the stone, while the distinct clipped corners of the stone gives its top face an octagonal shape. Since most emerald cut diamonds are found in a rectangular ratio of length to width, it can be a bit tricky to find perfect square emerald cut diamonds at retail jewelry stores.

It may be wise to find a reputed diamond company online and schedule an appointment to find your ideal stone. Although, it might help to know that if you are keen on a square shape in emerald cut, you could consider widening your search to include the Asscher cut as well. In fact, the asscher cut is identical to the emerald cut, except that asscher cut diamonds are near square in shape and is sometimes even referred to as the square emerald cut. Hence, if you go in for an asscher cut diamond for your ring setting, you can rest assured that the ratio of the diamond’s width and length is close to 1:1, which on the other hand is something, you will have to ensure while procuring an emerald cut diamond from the market.

One of the most important factors in acquiring an emerald cut or asscher cut diamond ring is the clarity grade of the diamond. In view of the fact that both these cuts emphasize any flaws and inclusions the diamond may possess, selecting a diamond that is rated high on the clarity grade scale is advisable. Such cuts look beautiful in fancy colored diamonds as they are ideal to showcase the diamond’s color, as well as the model colorless wherein the cut accentuates the shine, brilliance and natural clarity of the stone.

If you are looking for square emerald cut diamond rings in vintage styles, be sure to choose diamonds that are of decent carat weight. Even though emerald cut and asscher cut diamonds appear bigger than their rounder counterparts, such diamonds look best when they are a carat or more. Especially, if you are buying the ring for a loved one or in order to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, wedding or anniversary.

Solitaire Pendant Designs & Diamond Engagement Rings

Jewelry design creates the difference between mediocre pieces and exclusive ones. Designers spend days on end to come up with designs that stand apart from the rest. While diamond jewelry is always considered special, regardless of design, items like solitaire pendant designs and diamond engagement rings are the ones that make the wish-list of every modern day girl from around the world. Such jewelry designs may be the simplest or the most elaborate, but they have a common factor that steals the show every single time, the diamond. In both these items the vital element is the beauty and brilliance of the diamond involved, and for this reason choosing the ideal diamond for solitaire pendant or engagement ring settings is of utmost importance.

There are two ways to go about buying such jewelry. You could either buy a great diamond and then get it set in the design of your choice, or buy a ready retail piece from the jewelry store. While the second option may appeal to a lot of you, it may not get you the exact piece you want. And since solitaire diamond pendants as well as solitaire diamond engagement rings are both items that are exclusively bought to mark a special day or celebrate a special relationship, it is only fair that the piece of jewelry be as personalized as it can be. If the first option of choosing every aspect of the ornament appeals to you, there are a few tips given below that may help you buy the perfect gift for the love of your life.

You will first need to have a rough design of the jewelry in mind. Solitaire pendants or rings look best when kept simple in design, as it lets the beauty and elegance of the stone shine through. Then decide on the shape of the diamond. This can be round, princess (square), radiant (square with clipped edges), emerald (rectangular), teardrop (pear shaped), oval, heart, marquise, or asscher (similar shape to the radiant, but having a different cut). Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed by the many choices. You will be naturally drawn to a particular shape and cut, so rest assured your personality will make the choice for you.

Things get a lot simpler once you have made your choice about the shape and cut of the diamond. All you have to do to get the perfect diamond for solitaire pendant designs or solitaire diamond engagement rings is pick the highest grades in color and clarity. And of course, try and procure the biggest carat weight you can afford without compromising on the rest, as no solitaire can truly be called one unless it possesses a decent size. For such setting a diamond more than 1 carat is just what the doctor ordered.

Big Diamond Platinum Engagement Rings

The engagement ring is probably one of the most important pieces of jewelry in a woman’s life, coming second only to the wedding ring. The importance of choosing the perfect engagement ring is a responsibility that can be described as overwhelming, for many. Many men feel absolutely stumped about this task, but nowadays thanks to the Internet and some companies that provide one-on-one guidance for the process of buying big diamond platinum engagement rings, these men can now buy the woman they love a wonderful ring without any hassles.

The internet provides a lot of information on procurement of diamonds and diamond jewelry that one can read up on. For any man out to acquire an engagement ring, there are two distinct choices. The first is for him to buy a loose diamond or diamonds and then get it set in a design of his choice. The second and more popular choice is to buy a ring from a well-known retail jewelry store. Even though the second option may sound simpler, it fails to deliver the absolute best. And, the absolute best is all you want when it comes to buying the only piece of jewelry that is going to be worn by your girl, for the rest of her life.

You can find the ideal loose diamond of your preference by browsing online or requesting an appointment and visiting a diamond dealer to pick out one yourself. It is wise to choose a diamond possessing decent carat weight for an engagement ring setting, meaning at least close to or more than one carat, a high grade in clarity and color, and a cut that compliments your love’s personality, as well as your chosen design for the ring. Once you have chosen the diamond and know how you want the ring to look, it is time to decide whether you want the ring to be in yellow gold, white gold, or platinum.

Diamond platinum engagement rings look beautiful and are most popular for their elegance and style. Such diamond platinum rings come in a variety of designs from a classic simple solitaire band to the most elaborate settings having a series of small diamonds around the biggest diamond in the center. Choose a design that she will love to flaunt all her life.

It is exciting to be shopping for big diamond platinum engagement rings, but be sure not to rush into it. Ensure that the diamond is conflict-free, carries a certificate of authenticity and does not carry any visible inclusions or defects. It is also better to buy your diamond engagement ring from a reputed source that assures quality of the product and security of the money transaction

Diamond Solitaire Pendants

Diamonds have always been prized items, even for the elite. Owned only by the wealthy in the early years, today these sparkling stones can be spotted on everyone, regardless of class, gender, or community. Considered the ultimate symbol of love, diamonds make great gifts for loved ones, no matter what the occasion. From graduation to Christmas, diamond jewelry such as diamond solitaire pendants, solitaire earrings, delicate diamond studded bracelets, and the like are popular and appreciated throughout the world. If you have a special occasion just around the corner, and you want to buy something exclusive as a present for a loved one or for yourself to wear, remember that diamonds truly are forever.

Contrary to popular belief, diamonds are not all that expensive. In fact, even if you want to buy any particular diamond jewelry like a diamond solitaire pendant, chances are that you can find a perfect pendant within your budget if you do the right kind of research, shop right, and buy the item from a reliable source that assists you through the whole process. There are quite a few companies that may come to mind but knowing exactly what you want is important, before you approach a jeweler or manufacturer.

First of all, when shopping for a diamond pendant you should have a rough budget in mind. This will help you focus on your selection better while sticking to the amount pre-decided. Secondly, decide on a design you think will look good. The simplest designs also look the best, but choosing a design according to the personality and style of the wearer can also be a good idea. Thirdly, choose the metal you want the diamond to be set in. This may be gold, white gold or platinum. The fourth aspect you need to decide is the shape and cut that you like most. While round solitaire pendants are most popular, contemporary princess cut solitaires, asscher cut solitaires, or teardrop or pear shape solitaires look beautiful with the perfect coupling of a graceful chain. Having mentioned this, one can always just decide on a budget and leave the rest for your heart to decide when you see the exquisite stones.

Diamond solitaire pendants can be worn at formal occasions as well as to work or play on a daily basis. Versatile but always complimenting the attire, this jewelry item is fast-making to the list of must-have for every girl. If you are out to buy a solitaire for someone special in your life, you should make sure that the diamond has a great sparkle and it is a decent size to be worn as a solitaire. If your budget is a little tight, you could go in for a cluster of diamonds to make an amazing looking pendant or a pendant that has a few smaller diamonds instead of a solitaire. But if you want to buy a gift that will be cherished and remembered for years to come, buy a diamond without worrying about either the carat or price.
