Five Steps to Buying a Diamond

Buying or selling a diamond? Here are five steps to buying a diamond (and info on how to sell diamonds too), from the experts themselves. round cut diamond
Nothing says eternity like a beautiful expertly cut, high quality diamond. In many cultures the diamond represents the symbol for eternal love. Diamonds can be set in any type of jewelry such as solitaire rings, eternity style rings, pendants, broaches, necklaces, earrings, belly button rings, nose rings, and much more. Regardless of what you plan to do with a diamond, we’ll walk you through the 5 steps to buying one Step 1: The first thing you’ll need to when buying a diamond is to decide upon a budget. Diamond prices can vary from very cheap to extremely expensive, depending on the particular quality of diamond that you plan to purchase. Therefore it is important to consider the diamond valuation to adjust its price correctly. If a diamond is flawless or high grade, then it can cost tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Step 2: Next, you will want to decide what size of diamond you want to purchase, and how many. The size of a diamond is measured in carats. The larger the carat the diamond is, the more expensive it will be. Step 3: You will also need to decide which color of diamond you would like to buy. Diamonds come in a large variety of natural colors, such as pink, yellow, blue, green, red, purple, black, and the more common, plain white. Colored diamonds can also signify different meanings, for example pink diamonds generally represent love, whereas purple diamonds signify undying loyalty. Step 4: Once you have decided upon your budget and what type of diamond you want, the next step is to decide on an insurance policy. Diamonds are very expensive and are often times lost or stolen. Insuring your diamond means that your investment is covered in the event that a worse case scenario occurs. Step 5: The last step you want to decide upon, is where to buy your desired diamond. It is highly recommended that you buy your certified diamond from a highly trusted source. Buying a diamond from an untrusted source could mean that you’re either getting far less diamond for your money, or you could even end up buying a counterfeit diamond without even knowing it.

New York City Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls Events: A Case for Love

Last month we had the pleasure of helping Daniel create the perfect marriage proposal for his lovely (at the time) girlfriend, Megan. Daniel and Megan met in college and while he fell in love almost immediately, it took her a little more time to realize what a catch she had found. They dated throughout college and after graduation Megan went into law school. When Daniel first called us and inquired about our services I right away knew this guy was our ideal client. His passion for creating the perfect moment for his love was so clear. Now normally when a client fills out our “Package #1 questionnaire” it ends up being about 3 pages long of answers and cute stories, etc. but not Daniel’s! His questionnaire was 7 pages long and made me tear up reading it! This guy LOVES his fiancé. Being that both of these lovebirds have a strong love language of “words of affirmation” we knew we wanted to somehow show Megan all of the wonderful things Daniel wrote about her in the questionnaire. So that’s where the idea of a customized book came into play. The title “A Case for Love” came from the inspiration of Megan currently being in law school. We filled nearly 200 pages with stories, memories, photos, and quotes from Daniel’s questionnaire and created a beautiful bound leather book (just like in the fairytales that Daniel wanted Megan to be reminded of)! Congratulations you two, we are so thankful to have been a part of your beautiful proposal!

Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Do you remember last year when we talked about Pantone announcing emerald as the color of the year for 2013? Well they just announced the color for 2014 – Radiant Orchid! I have been swooning over this beautiful color ever since I heard the news and I just had to share some of my favorite finds with y’all!

“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health” (From Pantone’s website)
