Warm Up The Winter With Diamond Earrings

One of the most challenging parts of winter is that all of the fun stuff happens early. Winter isn’t even a week old when Christmas rolls around. New Year’s Eve follows just a week later and then – BANG – that’s it. Unless you’re a sports fan or a fanatic about Presidential birthdays, there really isn’t anything to help get you through a long cold winter. That is the perfect reason to surprise her with a gift of diamond earrings.

The most romantic reason to buy anyone a gift, especially a gift for that special someone in your life, has nothing to do with what the calendar says. Certainly, there are expectations to fulfill on birthdays and Christmas that are the perfect occasion for gold jewelry and diamond necklaces, but it is the unexpected gift that means the most. The pure surprise of an unexpected gift is a reward unto itself, and when she asks you why, you get to give her the best two word answer ever: “Just because.”

 

Just because: you love her and want her to have something special. Just because: you know how much she has always wanted a pair of diamond earrings. Just because: it’s been a long cold winter and you want to see her smile. Just because: she wore that new dress last week when you went out to dinner and you knew that a brand new pair of earrings would complete the outfit perfectly. Just because: you want to tell her thank you for sharing her life with you.

 

Diamond stud earrings are one of the most iconic pieces of jewelry out there. They are wildly versatile, going great with everything from jeans and a sweatshirt to that little black dress. They are, in fact, probably one of the few ideas, jewelry or otherwise, that a person could feel comfortable buying for their loved one without having to worry if it will be something they like or will go with what they already own. Love and passion are emotions of impulse and creativity. They are filled with surprise and wonder. Show her how deep your love is by surprising her this weekend with a beautiful new pair of diamond earrings.

 

 

Bargain Shopping For The Perfect Christmas Gifts

The holiday season is the perfect time for you to splurge on gifts for those people in your life you care most about. It may seem a bit difficult to choose gifts for each and every single person on your list this year, but as long as you spend the time to do a little shopping and brainstorming, you will find something that is just right for each of them. Finding some sales should be very easy, especially if you get an early start on your shopping! There will be many Christmas jewelry specials going on in jewelry stores all over your town. The best time to begin your shopping is right after Thanksgiving. Black Friday has turned into an absolute madhouse that starts on Thanksgiving Day instead of Friday. This is a heated debate topic among retail stores and their employees. No one wants to work on Thanksgiving Day because they should be spending time with their loved ones instead. However, now this is the biggest day ever for retail stores all over the United States. These huge chains can find employees to work since people are anxious to save up money for the holidays.

Probably the most important gift you will buy every year is the one for your significant other. This could be the perfect opportunity to get her that very special gift you have been thinking about for quite some time. If you are ready to take your relationship to the next level, then you will certainly be able to find some great deals on engagement rings and maybe even custom design jewelry. It all depends on your gal’s personal taste. If you do not have any idea what kind of ring she would like, you can always enlist the help of one of her close friends. They should have a good idea about what kind of jewelry she likes. The engagement ring is very important because she will wear it for the rest of her life. However, if you are not able to afford the ring she has always dreamt of wearing, you can always buy it later down the road as an anniversary gift or another special occasion. As long as you treat her with love and respect, she will be happy with whatever jewelry you buy her.

 

If you are not ready to take the plunge and get her a wonderful piece of jewelry then you can always get her a nice necklace or bracelet or earrings.

Diamond jewelry has always been very sentimental, romantic and special. There is just no better way to show your love for another person than by giving them a gorgeous pair of earrings, bracelet or even a ring. In modern society, it is very common for a man to give a woman a diamond ring when he asks for her hand in marriage. Couples typically exchange diamond wedding bands on their wedding day, as well. Marriage is the pinnacle of romance, love and commitment, so it says a lot that diamonds are involved in this process.

In case you are not planning on getting married in the near future or you are not even close to dropping down on one knee and proposing, it does not mean you cannot splurge this Christmas. Everyone has a mother, some have sisters, and these ladies would certainly love a piece of jewelry that means so much to them. Some women wait their entire lives to receive a piece of diamond jewelry, while other women never receive any at all. The most meaningful jewelry is always from someone you love and care about, no matter what. In this crazy world in which we live, sometimes that means family only for some people. Family is very important and should be because they are your support network throughout your life. If you cannot rely on the people you have known for your entire life, then who can you rely on? The moral of the story is, there is always someone to buy diamond jewelry for.

 

 

Find Some Colored Loose Diamonds For Your Holiday Jewelry

Loose diamonds come in a variety of colors. Your jeweler will likely have many of these colored certified loose diamonds on display when you enter their store. Depending on the kind of jewelry you are hoping to design, you will have many choices when it comes to the colored stones you will use to decorate this item. These colored diamonds make perfect accents to some holiday jewelry.

Loose diamonds are formed deep within the earth by Mother Nature herself. These beautiful rocks endure some pretty extreme conditions before being thrust toward the earth’s surface via volcanic eruption. It is hard to believe something so gorgeous can be the result of such treacherous conditions. Extreme heat and pressure no living being could ever withstand are to be credited with the formation of these stones. Carbon atoms form very cohesive bonds when exposed to these conditions. Their intricate lattice bonds make them the hardest naturally formed material on the earth. The atoms for a protective layer around them and are called rough loose diamonds. It isn’t until a professional diamond cutter gets his or her hands on the rough diamond that the stone becomes cut and polished to sparkle in all of its beauty. Then the diamonds are sold to distributors who will, in turn, sell them to you and me.

Now that you know how the loose diamonds are formed in the earth, we will now explore how these stones become colorful. Most people prefer white diamonds. A perfectly white diamond is colorless. Flawless and colorless diamonds are extremely rare and boast an expensive price tag. Most of the white diamonds you see on your friends’ jewelry and in the jewelry store has some tint of brown or yellow even if you cannot see it with your own two eyes. Essentially, colored diamonds are flawed diamonds and are not as valuable as their colorless counterparts. However, when it comes to loose diamonds, it all depends on your personal taste.

The color of a diamond is determined during the formation process when the diamond is deep under our feet. For example, if the carbon atoms are exposed to boron during the formation process, these loose diamonds will take on a blue tint. Depending on the levels of boron, the diamond will be very blue, barely blue and everything in between. Another example is a black diamond. These diamonds are not typically black the entire way through. The reason they are black is because of the many imperfections within the stone.

 

 

Diamond Earrings Are The Ultimate Accessory

A game that a lot of people like to play is a variation on “The Desert Island” motif: if you were stranded on a desert island, what is the one (fill in the blank) you would bring with you? Obviously this is a game of fantasy, because if I was stranded on a desert island I would me more worried about how to survive the island, if not escape, than I would be what music I would be listening to or what one food I had to eat. That being said, if I were stranded on a desert island and I could only have one piece of jewelry with me, what would it be? That’s easy. The same type of jewelry I would want no matter where I am: diamond earrings.

Diamond Earrings

To understand the practicality behind my choice, instead of thinking about a desert island, imagine you have to pack quickly for a weekend get-away. Your husband or boyfriend comes home and surprises you, telling you that you’re leaving in thirty minutes. Other than yes or no to a bathing suit, he doesn’t give you any other clues what to bring. This means you need to either pack every piece of fine jewelry you have, or pick the one diamond accessory that you know will work no matter where you wind up.

 

I like all types of diamond jewelry, because no matter what the occasion, there is a diamond bracelet or diamond necklace that matches it perfectly. It could be a fancy Friday night on the town or a casual Sunday morning brunch, a long day at the office or an afternoon running errands, and there is undoubtedly some piece of fine diamond jewelry in my collection that will fit. However, if I had to get rid of all of it and just keep one item, the perfect item for everything, from my little black dress to my favorite jeans and T-shirt, is a simple but elegant pair of stud diamond earrings. I’ve discovered that they go so well with everything that I will put them on first thing in the morning, just in case I don’t have time to accessorize later. That way I know, if nothing else, my ears will always look great.

8 Great Things About Fall

Wear the colors of fall with golden citrine earrings from Amidon.

 

 

Fall has officially fallen. Instead of missing the warm days of summer, it’s time to look ahead and anticipate the chillier pleasures of fall. So let’s turn our attention to the fun and the colors of turning leaves. Hey, they look kind of like rubies, citrine and topaz!

 

Time to get cozy.

Shake out your sweaters, find your favorite gloves, drape a soft scarf around your neck. Boot weather is here! If you have a fireplace in your house, stock up on wood.

 

The raking workout.

Who needs the gym when your yard is full of leaves? Get out your rake and feel your shoulders getting stronger. Plus you get that wholesome rosy glow on your cheeks from exercising in the cool air.

 

Apples! Pears!

It’s harvest time. Celebrate with fresh apples, pear sauce, or a mug of hot cider. Don’t forget the cinnamon and cloves.

 

Smells of autumn.

The crisp air and turning leaves bring along that special fall smell. It’s a mixture of leaves, rain and wood smoke. Breathe it in.

 

As the leaves turn red, wear this sparkling red garnet ring from Amidon.

 

 

Family times.

As we enter fall, the holiday season draws near. Think about the fun things you can do to celebrate with your special people, be they family or friends.

 

Goodwill towards humankind.

Maybe this is the year you’ll volunteer to serve a Thanksgiving meal to the needy, or organize a gift drive for a battered women’s shelter. Everybody can find somebody less fortunate to help. Sharing your love just makes your love grow bigger.

 

Halloween.

Whether you celebrate Halloween or harvest festival, it’s a time of year for games, treats and costumes. Explore your alter ego. Bob for apples. Play games at a harvest festival. Get lost in a corn maze.

 

Celebrate fall colors with rubies.

 

 

Letting Go.

As the leaves fall from the trees, maybe you can let go of a few things, too. Do you have too much stuff in your house? Donate useful goods to your favorite charity. Do you have negative patterns in your life that no longer serve you? Animosity or resentments towards people? Let that fall away, too, so you can lighten your heart and let more love and happiness in.
