Monday For Men: What do the 4 C’s mean?

Photos from 4 diamonds. Stop by there more details on the four C’s.

Engagement ring shopping? Here are a few questions to ask the jewelers.

1. What is the jewelers exchange/return policy? It is good to have a back-up plan just in case your fiancee (or you) wants to exchange her ring. This is especially important if you aren’t going engagement ring shopping together and plan on totally surprising her with your ring pick.

2. Ask to view your diamond under their microscope, so you can see any and all blemishes. This will help you compare and understand the clarity (one of the 4 C’s) of the diamond so you make the best decision.

3. Does the jeweler offer custom ring designs if you already have your diamond? Some jewelers, such as Tiffany & Co., have brilliant, quality diamonds but do not offer any customization of rings. Therefore, if you already have the diamond look for family-owned jewelry stores who specialize in custom settings.

4. What are you options for payment? Every store has a different payment policy so do not assume, ask.

5. Who does the appraisal? Many jewelers require you go through them for the appraisal. Therefore, if you want to go elsewhere, double check their policy. After you get your appraisal, make sure you get the ring insured as soon as possible.

6. Get the ring insured! You don’t need to ask the jewelers because you can do this through your own bank but it’s SOOO important to get her engagement ring insured.

I hope this makes ring shopping a little less stressful and a little more enjoyable. These are just a few items to address. A Feel free to email us or comment below if you have a good question/suggestion for our soon-to-be engaged couples. Have fun finding that perfect fit!

Friday “Rocks”!

Ok, so not only am I super stoked it’s Friday… but because of the engagement rings I found for this week! When I came across Sasha Primak pieces, my mouth dropped in complete awe… the pieces are seriously insane, I was blown away. I know I say this often, but some of my favorite rings of ALL time! I wish I would have found this jewelry line sooner- AMAZING, absolutely gorgeous! It was hard to narrow it down to just a few of my favorites… but I hope this leads you to check out the many other beauties in this collection! Check them out…

Curvilinear Triple-Shank Pave Round Diamond Side-Stone Ring

I love the technique and creative elements… plus all the mini diamonds that coats the piece!

Emerald-Cut Diamond Three-Stone Ring with Step-Cut Trapezoid Diamond Sides

The sleek and modern cut is a clean mix with the vintage emerald stone… beautiful!

Double-Halo Split-Shank Marquise Diamond Side-Stone Ring

This ring is so unique, not only is the marquise center stone rare but so is the double halo… giving it a much larger appearance (which is never bad). Very much an original ring!!

Pave Diamond Arched Cathedral Round Diamond Three-Stone Ring
Designed to convey the universal message of your past, present, and future, this Round Diamond 3-Stone Ring is traditionally crafted with a delicate yet prominent accent of Pave-Set diamonds embracing each side. Each carefully selected diamond represents the memorable stages of your enduring relationship, from now until forever. 

It reminds me of a small bouquet of flowers :) So shiny and lovely…

Getting That Guy To Ask You Out

Before you ever get to a proposal, you have to go on a first date right? This article goes out to the single gals out there who hope to get the attention of that great guy!

If you think it’s tough sitting on the sidelines with your girlfriends waiting for a guy to talk to you, think about the situation from a guy’s perspective. He has to walk over and make contact with you while you’re surrounded by your girlfriends. I know I wouldn’t want to have to do that!

You have support – he’s going it alone. If his approach works, he wins. If he fails, he has to endure the snickers of your girlfriends and walk back to the smart remarks by his guy friends.

To make matters worse, every time he gets rejected, he relives that awful moment in junior high school when he was embarrassed at the school dance. It’s a wonder guys even try. But enough sympathy – women have their share of dating issues, too. Just keep in mind that it takes courage for a guy to approach you.

The point is – what can you do as a female to be more approachable for the right kind of guys? Help them out a little. To begin with, you can start a conversation. Not a female version of a pickup line, but a real conversation.

Getting That Great Guy To Ask You Out

If you’re stuck in a long line at the grocery store, talk about what’s around you. “Can you believe how the price has gone up for a good steak?” or something like, “Before you buy that detergent, did you know that another good brand has a two for one sale?”

As simple as that sounds, it says, “Hey, I’m willing to talk to you” in a nice, non-threatening way. Admire his car at the gas station or his mountain bike at the park, but don’t get personal about clothes or anything that screams “pickup.”

By keeping the conversation neutral, you get the chance to find out if you’re interested in taking it further. Even if a guy opens the door for you, instead of just mumbling “thanks,” look him in the eyes and say, “Thank you, I appreciate it when a guy opens doors for me.” That’s flattering, which immediately gets his attention and gives him a chance to join the conversation if he’s interested – or say, “You’re welcome” and move on if he’s not interested.

Maybe this helps you start to think of places and situations where you could throw out a non-sexual opening line for a guy to follow and start a conversation. Since you spoke first in a gracious manner, he has some assurance that you’re willing to talk, which makes it easier for him to follow your lead without feeling like he’s being manipulated.

Is this just manipulation? No, it’s not – as long as you offer sincere comments and have an open mind about getting to know him. Can you start a conversation with a man on the street or in a restaurant without a reason?

Yes, you can – no one is going to report you to the Manners Police. Think about where you are and what’s going on around you. Starting a conversation with a man in a crowded bar on Friday night is likely to be interpreted differently than making small talk while you’re in the same airport waiting area with him.

Place and time has a lot to do with whether you appear approachable and interesting or desperate. And if you aren’t willing to strike up the conversation, at least be inviting for men who have to work up the nerve to talk to you first.

Also watch your own body language. Make sure your arms aren’t folded in front of your chest or that you aren’t rolling your eyes and scowling at everyone and everything around you. Be pleasant and smile and even if he’s not your type, that doesn’t mean you can’t be friendly to someone who took the time to try to get to know you. Keep a friendly demeanor and you will have a first date with that great guy before you know it!

Love,

Renting Props for your Wedding/Proposal

The Yes Girls recently took a trip to Paso Robles to help Lindsay pick out final details for her wedding. In her ceremony area she really wanted to create an enclosed area that makes you feel like you are walking into a intimate space/room instead of a large open field. We got creative and decided renting trees to create a wall and doorway was not only more fitting and beautiful in the setting but more cost effective then renting or building doors. This is a perfect solution on how to create an private space in an outdoor area for a marriage proposal too!

Here is a little video explaining more about renting these trees:

 

It’s safe to say we had such a fun weekend us girls and our moms enjoying the Paso Robles sun and combining all our creative juices so the future Mrs. Meister has one unforgettable wedding day!

Twitter Tuesdays: #weddingprops. Tweet some of your favorite #weddingprops you’ve seen or you’ll be using yourself!

Love,

The Yes Girls
