Loose diamonds are lovely natural creations the world has gifted to us to enjoy. We certainly enjoy them. Not only are they shiny and magical looking, but they also symbolize romance. Many women wear diamonds that were given to them by their significant others. Some of this jewelry comes in the form of an engagement ring and some comes in the form of earrings or necklaces. No matter what kind of diamond jewelry you have, it is likely one of the most special pieces in your collection.

Your local jeweler will have a collection of certified loose diamonds they will be able to sell you. These loose diamonds come with a certificate that tells you everything you need to know about the stone. This is an important piece of information for your insurance company. Not too many people realize you can put insurance on a piece of jewelry, but you can! It is no different than insuring your house, car or yourself. Anything that is worth any significant value should be insured by a trusted company by paying a small monthly fee, they will make sure your piece of jewelry gets replaced in the event of a burglary or if it becomes damaged or lost.

With all the talk about cash for gold and how precious metals are more valuable than ever, I wondered if the same was true for diamonds. I had some leftover jewelry that I wasn’t wearing anymore and didn’t feel like fixing, but I wanted to see if I could sell diamonds as easily as it seems people sell gold. It turns out I could, but I had to do a little more research to make sure I got the most money.

You see, when a jewelry store buys gold or other precious metals, eventually that metal will be melted down and reformed into something new. Diamonds can’t get melted down, meaning that the size and shape they are now is almost certainly what they will always stay. A few out of every hundred may get cut down to smaller pieces, but for the most part, any jewelry store that is going to buy diamonds will take them for the size they are. That is where the value fluctuation comes into play

Certified loose diamonds get their values based on a certain number of criteria, but that also only goes as far as size. Meaning if I wanted to sell diamonds that were equal size and shape but had different scores for color, cut and clarity, they would be worth two different amounts. Since larger diamonds are rarer, the price climbs exponentially, and there is no hard and fast rule for what they are worth.

The bottom line is what one jeweler offers may not be the same as another. I had heard that the place to get maximum payoff for your diamonds was at Van Scoy Diamonds, but I wanted to be sure so I visited a few other places that offer to buy diamonds. Sure enough, the rumors I heard were right. They were by far the most generous when it came to what they offered, and they even had a program where if you took a store credit instead of the cash (which they offered on the spot), you could earn even more. And I knew I could trust them because you don’t stay in business for over one hundred years by taking advantage of your customers. If I have to sell diamonds in the future, I know exactly where to get maximum payout for my diamonds.

You have probably heard of the many cash for gold stores located in your area. Some of these stores are pawn shops, while others are actual jewelry stores. What better way to make a few extra dollars with your broken or unwanted gold jewelry than with your trusted jeweler right around the corner from your house?

What are you doing New Year’s Eve???

 

Maybe you plan to ring in the new year at home with family and friends, or maybe you’re planning a big night on the town with lots of glitter and glam.  For either extreme – and anywhere in between – this is the one night of the year when we’re free (and encouraged) to be as bold and blingy as we want to be.  So, even if you’ve got a more subdued evening planned to welcome 2017, be sure to take advantage of the occasion and bring your best and brightest self to the party with your most dazzling New Year’s Eve jewelry!

 

What to wear…

 

For more casual New Year’s events, your outfit may be subdued, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enchant the room with dazzling sparkle and shine.  A monochromatic color scheme is easily dressed up by adding layers of texture with your jewelry.  Layered necklaces add interest to your overall look, while bold statement pieces such as a signature pendant or creatively stacked rings and bracelets add that “wow factor” that will turn every head in the room.  Don’t forget some fun and flashy earrings for that extra pop of glam!

 

For a more formal evening of dinner and dancing and champagne toasts, this characteristically dim and demure ambience is your time to shine!  Focus on jewelry pieces that will refract all available light (diamonds, anyone?) and you’ll be the most sparkly guest in the room.  Diamonds and colored semi-precious gemstones are ideal in this kind of atmosphere, as are highly shined precious metals such as white gold or silver – especially when worn as a larger statement piece (think chunky hammered bracelets or shoulder-kissing drop earrings).

 

However you plan to spend this holiday, be bold, be daring, be dazzling… and Happy New Year!

It’s out with the old and in with the new as the dawning of 2017 quickly approaches, and your holiday jewelry statement should reflect just that.  New Year’s Eve is that one night of the year where we all feel free to indulge our desires and show off a fancier side of ourselves.  It’s a night for bold and daring fashion statements and the perfect excuse to break out the finest our jewelry boxes have to offer, or even to indulge in that long-yearned-for statement piece that you haven’t quite been able to justify for “everyday” wear.  But this isn’t an “everyday” event; it’s New Year’s Eve!

The Best and the Brightest – Favorite Jewelry Trends this New Year’s Eve

 

December is the darkest month of the year.  So it only makes sense to balance out the “blah” with brilliance, and by that we mean jewelry.  This year’s holiday fashion trends focus entirely on adding shine, shimmer and sparkle to everything from the dinner table to your jewelry ensemble.  Don’t be shy when it comes to accessorizing, as this season’s jewelry trends also encourage us to be big, bold and blingy, with layering and mixed jewelry textures at the forefront of many a holiday style guide.

 

Even the most modest and subdued of holiday outfits can be made to shine and dazzle with the appropriate jewelry.  In fact, the typically darker colors of the winter season offer a great opportunity to make your holiday jewelry the star of your ensemble.  A hammered metal cuff bracelet adds dramatic shine, while a pair of dangling chandelier earrings introduces a playful element to even the most elegant holiday fashions.

 

Can’t decide which jewelry deserves a New Year’s showcase this year?  No worries!  Perhaps the best part of this year’s jewelry trends is the freedom and versatility they allow us, from uber-casual to dressed-to-the-nines.  Can you mix that classic strand of pearls with a fashion forward stack of metallic bangle bracelets?  Why, yes you can!  Can you introduce today’s stylish natural elements such as wood, stone and shell into your sparkling New Year’s jewelry statement consisting of brilliant diamonds and gemstones?  But, of course!  The sky’s the limit when it comes to freely expression your own, individual style statement through jewelry.

 

The trick to making what might seem like wild ideas work seamlessly together for a one-of-a-kind jewelry statement is balance.  Decide first which pieces you want to stand out, and use the rest as accessories to complement those pieces.  And the grandiosity of New Year’s Eve just the occasion to show off the bolder and more brilliant side of your personal style!

If you’re planning to propose to the woman of your dreams this holiday season, chances are you’ve already got plenty on your mind.  How will you propose?  Who will be there?  And, most importantly (gulp) will she say yes?  Yes, there can be a fair amount of stress involved in planning the perfect marriage proposal.  Fortunately, choosing the perfect engagement ring doesn’t have to be.  Here are a few tips to help you plan the perfect holiday proposal – right after finding that one-of-a-kind engagement ring that will make this a holiday season she’ll never forget.

  1. Know your Budget

The last thing you want to do in the beginning phase of your happily ever after is saddle yourself with a mortgage-like ring payment.  Yes, of course, this is a once in a lifetime investment, so you don’t want to skimp, either, but it’s wise to establish a budget that’s comfortable for you to work within.  Once you’ve established the parameters of your engagement ring budget, it’s time to go shopping.

  1. Be Creative

Be creative with your engagement ring search.  It’s all too common for people to think that the pre-made engagement rings found in so many online “catalogues” are the only options.  While you certainly might find the perfect ring amongst these selections, it’s also wise to consider designing your own engagement ring.  This process is much easier and less expensive than many people initially think, and by designing your own engagement ring you can easily maintain control of your budget, while ensuring that this once-in-a-lifetime purchase is as unique and beautiful as your one-of-a-kind love.

Consider alternatives to traditional diamonds in your selection, as well.  An ever-growing trend among modern engagement rings is the inclusion of colored gemstones, such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds and more, into the overall design of the ring.  These lesser-utilized precious gems – as either solitaire stones or gemstone accents – allow you to bring her favorite color into the mix, for a truly unique and personalized engagement ring.

Planning your Holiday Proposal

Whether you’re planning to propose on Christmas or New Year’s – or somewhere in between – consider her; her preferences, her style.  Will she (and you) be comfortable with a public proposal, in front of family and/or friends?  Or would a more intimate affair be more appropriate for your particular personality types?  Will that perfect engagement ring be stylishly wrapped beneath the Christmas tree?  Or will Santa leave it in her stocking because she was such a good girl this year?  Or will it bubble softly at the bottom of a glass of exquisite champagne, to welcome your new commitment at the start of the new year?

Whatever engagement ring you choose, whatever scenario you choose to embark upon in this monumental next step in your relationship…always remember what’s truly important – your love for one another.

Happy holidays!

The magic of Christmas isn’t just for children.  There are plenty of grown up boys and girls hoping to make the nice list this holiday season, as well.  If you really want to “wow” the grown up “good girls” on your holiday shopping list, look no further.  Every woman wants to sparkle during the holidays (and every other day of the year), so diamond jewelry is a perfect choice, whether you’re shopping for your wife, your girlfriend, your mom, or even your daughter.  In fact, here’s a brilliant jewelry gift idea for each of them this Christmas!

Holiday Jewelry Gifts for your Wife

Diamond jewelry is a perennial favorite among Christmas gifts, and your wife will be delighted to be on the receiving end of such a gesture.  Let her know you’re every bit as much in love with her this Christmas as you were the day you married her with a heartfelt gift of diamond earrings or, for an even more dramatic statement, a classic diamond tennis bracelet will have her eyes sparkling as much as those brilliant diamonds when she unwraps that velvety box.

Holiday Jewelry Gifts for your Girlfriend

Depending on the stage of your relationship, there are many jewelry gift options this holiday season that will show your significant other how special she is to you.  If you’re ready to propose a leap from girlfriend status to fiancée, the holidays are a perfect time; the romance in the air is palpable, and great deals on diamond engagement rings abound.  But if your relationship hasn’t quite reached that level of commitment, a less “formal” gift of diamond or colored gemstone jewelry will make this a Christmas she’ll always remember.  Infinity jewelry is a popular trend among couples this holiday season, symbolizing love that knows no bounds.

Holiday Jewelry Gifts for Mom

Mother’s jewelry is always a wonderful, sentimental choice in Christmas gifts for Mom.  Mother’s rings and Mother’s pendants can be easily customized to represent all her children and/or grandchildren within a single, beautiful piece of jewelry she’ll love to wear every day, all year long.

Holiday Jewelry Gifts for Daughters

Christmas is the perfect time to begin building a sentimental jewelry collection for daughters of every age.  Charm bracelets are an ever-more-popular trend in this category, and one that allows you to add to her collection each year with a new charm, resulting in a very sentimental piece of jewelry that continues to evolve as she grows up.

Ahhhh, the holidays; that wonderful time of the year where we all come together in a bizarre mix of stress and indulgence, culminating in a joyous and spirited period of giving and receiving.  This is a favorite time of year for many of us, and as the holiday party season fast approaches, it’s time to show some seasonal cheer with these favorite holiday jewelry trends for 2016!

Tis the Season… for Shimmer and Shine!

This holiday season is all about shimmer and shine – anything to light up a room, but not necessarily in the way you might think.  This season’s holiday jewelry trends aren’t about the biggest and brightest baubles, but something slightly subtler.  Something more unique and personal.  Something distinctly more… YOU.

Mixing it Up

This year’s holiday jewelry trends do not center around that single statement piece or an overkill of bling.  Instead, this season’s fashion trends encourage us to “mix it up” a bit.  Precious jewelry elements such as diamonds, pearls, gold and silver are paired with simpler natural elements such as shell, wood and stone to create an intriguing variety of texture that makes a statement all its own.  Similarly, this year’s holiday jewelry trends are bold and daring with color – again, not necessarily in one single piece, but by introducing multiple colors into your holiday jewelry ensemble, via practically any medium or element you choose.

Tradition Meets Trend

The “mixing it up” trend this holiday season opens up a wonderful opportunity to bring the traditional and the trendy together into a one-of-a-kind fashion statement.  Breathe new life into that timeless, classic strand of pearls by layering it with more trendy necklaces of multiple lengths and textures.  Revive that beautiful heirloom brooch by using it to fasten a trendy scarf.  Of course, it’s not imperative to mix old with new, but you’ll definitely want to experiment with a creative mix of color, texture and style – and have some fun with it!

Own your Look

The secret to being on trend with your jewelry this holiday season is to be daring and unafraid – to be yourself.  Whether your personal style statement is simple and understated or bold and blingy… it’s your look.  Own it.  Add some shimmer.  And some shine.  (It is the season of good cheer, after all). And know that no other woman in the room will be making a statement quite like yours.
