The Choice of the Engagement Ring: From Classic Solitaire to Originality!

Engagement Ring

Abandoned somewhat in recent years, the engagement returns back to the front of the stage. In the tradition and the collective imagination, the engagement is inseparable from the ring of the same name. But what are the criteria for buying the engagement ring?

Engagement Ring

Ask yourself the right questions

Engagement is undoubtedly one of the most important moments in the life of a young couple since the lovebirds together make the decision to engage with each other. In ninety-nine percent of the cases, it is the boy who makes his request, often surprised, to the chosen one of his heart. But for it to be possible, he needs the engagement ring. A jewel today available in a myriad of variations of shapes and materials, as you can see at Edenly.

The first thing to do is to define the amount you want to spend on this precious jewelry. The budget level will indeed depend on the characteristics of the ring. Be careful though, because the most expensive ring is not necessarily the prettiest, even if you bought it at a great jeweler. Between five hundred and one thousand euros, you can easily find “the rare pearl”. That’s why some men do not hesitate to save money before buying this ring.

The metal and the precious stone

Once the amount is fixed, you can finally devote yourself to the material of the ribbon of the jewel, more precisely the turn of the finger of the jewel. And not surprisingly, yellow or pink, gold especially the eighteen carats is still as successful with future fiancées. Alternatively, there are also whites and grays. However, to the extent that this metal is ninety-five percent yellow gold, their beautiful colors may fade over the months.

Nevertheless, if you can afford it, the ultimate is platinum. Highly resistant, this metal is the most valuable material used in the making of engagement rings.

Otherwise, people with a limited budget can always move towards silver, titanium or steel. And for what is now the precious stone, symbolizing eternity, the diamond is the gem of this ring. However, we see now, more and more, set with sapphire, emerald, rubies, pearls, even stones.

Other criteria to consider

What will happen to the shape of the jewel now? Many of you will probably immediately think of the loner. It is not surprising at all, knowing that nearly fifty percent of women dream of being asked to do so with the classic diamond solitaire .

However, to change the usual standards or in order to stand out from the crowd, nothing prevents you from opting for a completely different style, provided you retain a model that corresponds to his tastes, of course. When in doubt, ask for advice and opinions of friends and family. Otherwise, in order not to make odd, you can always leave to the principal interested the choice of the ring. Here, unfortunately, you have to put an end to the effect of surprise.

Polo, the Best Way to Get Uniformed and Feel Comfortable in the Office

Polo, the Best Way to Get Uniformed

Originally, these shirts were invented to play Polo, an Argentine sport consisting of two teams made up of four players, who mounted on horseback should try to carry a small ball to cross a rival goal.

During the decade of 1970, the famous designer Ralph Lauren designed a collection called “Polo” with these shirts being the main protagonists. From that date, polo style garments are indispensable in everyday fashion, especially in corporate dress.

Polo, the Best Way to Get Uniformed

What is the reason for its success? The polo garments are made with cotton, so they are comfortable, durable and also limit the excessive sweating of those who wear them.

Comfort: thanks to the diversification of the dress codes, comfort is one of the main needs of employers and collaborators.

Versatility: it is one of the most versatile garments of business fashion: it can be worn with jeans, with dress pants or with khaki. Of course, remember that it will always be less formal than a shirt.

  • Dry Polo
  • Elite Polo

Great Tips for Finding the Perfect Birthday Gift

Anniversaries are a time of joy, but everyone knows how to find the perfect gift can be secretly stressful. Even if you have known the boy or the birthday girl for a very long time, there is no guarantee that you will know what to offer him when that special day comes. Take a look at these wonderful tips that greatly facilitate birthday gift shopping – and save money and time to get started.

 Perfect Birthday Gift

Ask for ideas

It’s good to ask for help! Friends or family members may be able to give you good ideas or point you in the right direction. At the very least, ask others what they plan to offer – if the person who is going to celebrate his birthday has one or two important interests, finding him a birthday present should be easy for you.

Buy for the person in question, not for you!

If you stop for a minute, you can probably think of times when you let your personal taste influence the gifts you buy. Instead of trying to tame his wild tastes by buying a simple necklace, show him that you appreciate his style by offering this bold bracelet that you will love.

Buy something useful can be better

People love to give fun birthday gifts such as works of art and home decor. However, if the gift only takes up space, it is best to give something that the recipient will actually use. If you give an article that is usually posted, make sure he or she will really like it. Otherwise, it will be used to collect dust and create a clutter. If you are unsure, it is safer to use an article that a person can actually use.

Enjoy the season

If you do not know what to buy, consider seasonal products. Seasonal items can be used immediately and can not be forgotten or forgotten. If it’s winter, go for a scarf. If it’s summer, look for a sun hat or a baseball cap. This also facilitates shopping as seasonal items are readily available in season.

Consider the number of candles

Consider the number of candles on the cake and buy a birthday gift appropriate to his age. Your teenage nephew might love a book about his teens, and a fun movie about girls in their twenties might be a great gift for your niece who is twenty. Older men and women are more likely to appreciate household items, while gift cards may be more suitable for students who do not want to accumulate a lot of things.

Zoom on the diamond

Zoom on the diamond

Seriously, what passionate jewelry and gems do not crack on precious stones especially diamonds?

I admit, I have been fascinated by this gem for years. That’s why I decided to devote an article in my blog.

Zoom on the diamond

The gem of excess

Even before I could afford my first diamond solitaire , this precious gem was already the subject of all my attention. Regularly, I even went to visit jewelers to admire and touch the stone. Why so much craze? First, the exceptional beauty and clarity of this gem, especially if the diamond has shades of colors such as pink, blue, green or yellow.

Moreover, at an auction organized by Sotheby’s on November 13, 2013 in Geneva, the most expensive diamond in the world was awarded at a colossal price of $ 83 million, namely nearly 61 million euros. Beautifully set on a ring, the Pink Star is a rare 59.60 carat pink diamond from one of the De Beers mines in Africa. Weighing 11.92 grams, the Pink Star has a thickness of 1.36 centimeters, with a measurement of 2.60 centimeters by 2.69 centimeters.

But if I have so much fascination for this precious stone, it’s because this natural mineral composed mainly of carbon is only 150 or even 1000 kilometers below the earth’s crust. Indeed, a temperature around 1200 degrees, associated with a pressure of 4.5 GPa are the conditions sine qua non to the formation of the diamond. Hence its rarity and its very expensive cost.

What you need to know when buying a diamond

If one day you want to become the lucky owner of a diamond you must take into account these 4 evaluation criteria. More specifically, the 4C will intervene in determining the price of this precious stone. The first is the Carat which as its name indicates defines the weight of the gem. So the more the gem is heavy, the higher the price. And if my memory does not fail me, only diamonds cut with more than 0.5 carats can be qualified as rare.

The second criterion is the Clarity which specifies the purity of the gemstone based on the number of inclusions present in the gem. These imperfections may be in the form of crystals or gaseous clouds. Otherwise, once examined from every angle, the stone will be classified according to its purity. And for information, in the purity chart, a diamond is qualified perfect when the gem is categorized Internally Flawless or FL.

The diamond on my engagement ring is on the scale of VS2 or Very Small Inclusion, a very appreciable purity. But now let’s talk about the Cut . This third criterion concerns mainly the size, the symmetry and the shape of the diamond and will be defined according to four essential elements which are: the breech, the crown, the table and the rondiste. Finally, the fourth, and not least, criterion is the color of the gemstone or color .

Here are all the tips to choose your diamond!
