If you have were fortunate enough to have been given a gift from a loved one that may well have passed and it simply oozes with history and sentimental value. Your holding in your hands a piece of “your” history. But it may well be damaged, missing a diamond or just does not suit you, as a person. However you know it carries great worth due to the person leaving it to you, so what do you do?
In this day of technology and creativity, help is always on hand.
Just last week I had the pleasure of meeting a lady who presented a Emerald cut diamond wedding ring that she had been left and although the ring was very old and broken she wanted to have it re-made so that she could wear it on her wedding day, you have to admit that’s extremely touching and filled with love.
She went to her local jeweller but they quoted her an exorbitant amount, partly because they did not fancy doing the job and
Spring is in the air and so are the showers, the buds and the blossom on the trees.
After what seemed a very long winter, we set about the famous spring clean of our homes and if you are anything like me you will be amazed at what you will find in the draws and cupboards, things that you had completely forgotten about and more likely never used.
This year my array of finds have included, old remote control boxes for appliances that I no longer have, out of date beer bottles, and clothes that are no longer worn, gold tie pins, cufflinks and broken chains. Now all packed and ready for the Charity shops, and the remotes and the beer cans to the local dump. But the gold, well that’s a different matter unlike all your other finds they still have a value.
I really do love spring, it that time of year where we can brush away the winter blues, the buds start to push through and start to blossom, surrounding us with blue bells, daffodils and tulips such beautiful fresh colours. Longer days and sunshine puts that extra bounce in our steps, a wider smile on our faces and the air is full of positivity.
The other great thing about this time of year is winter clothes can finally be locked up and replaced by beautiful prints and fresh spring colours. From a jewellery design prospective this allows us to be far more creative with the coloured gems that we can use in our designs.
As I have mentioned in previous blogs I have a real passion for beautiful vibrant coloured gems and the spring season really allows us to offer you an array of choice to really finish off the outfit, I thought it would be quiet cool to give you some insights to the possibilities that are available and take a look as lesser know stones.
Golden beryl is also known as Heliodor, which is named after the Greek words for sun "Helios" and gift "Doron". The sunny yellowcolour of this beryl lives up to its name. Although it isn't well known, Golden beryl has an illustrious pedigree.
Like people, gems come in closely related
On the face of it the answer might well be yes until you dig a little deeper. Firstly the online store will bombard you with the information that they want you to know, they will write about the colour and the clarity might even mention a little about the symmetry and the polish.
But what does that all mean to you?
Buying a diamond on a certificate and the above information will totally confuse you and might actually mean you spending much more money than you need to.
I have having been selling diamonds for more than 30 year and I am still learning, yet it ceases to amaze me how by visiting a few web sites any one can become an expert. It is just not true, You need to sit with a personal jeweller who will be able to show you samples of different colours, clarity’s and sizes of stones then taking into account not only your budget but information about the person you are to present they will be able to help and advise you so that you can make a conformed choice.
A diamond is the most beautiful and romantic purchase that you will ever make it is not a commodity that should be bought on price.
Seek out your own personal jeweller and let them put romance and mystique back into this special purchase.
You might just save money as well
Everyone should consider having their own personal jeweller. Someone who will listen to you and your ideas. Then when the time is right be there to explain in “plain English” what the right diamond is for you and your partner and the pricing options.
When you have the right person at hand, they will be able to explain the differences between diamonds in the market place today, how best to design and wrap the diamond with your imagination and yes all mixed in with a little bit of science with the 4 C’s
No matter what we talk about, I am passionate about your designs, love to share ideas and make dreams a reality. But bumping back down to earth for a moment, allow me to give you a little piece of advice, remember your eyes do not lie you need to see before you can buy, a diamond is the most precious purchase you can ever make. Never go into this lightly.
For anyone, any age that is looking for their first diamond, instinct takes you to stores and the internet to gather as much information to make the right decision, you can be so overwhelmed with information that in fact leaves you frustrated, unsure and could result in you spending far more than anticipated. To me it’s simple, I don’t want to see you getting the wrong diamond and design.
Sometimes, just knowing you have your own personal jeweller on hand to guide you can take away so much pressure. My aim is to free your mind of the technical jargon and open up your ideas with a better understanding to the right diamond for the right design and ultimately the right gift to WOW your partner or loved one.
I would welcome the chance to simply sit down and chat with you about your decisions, diamonds and designs, something that should be a fun experience and not a sales pitch.
