There are only a few ways to encapsulate the mood and the theme of your wedding before the actual wedding. It helps your guest dress appropriately for the event, and it helps reveal your personalities. It is simply through THE INVITATION. The invitation is a teaser, a short glance for what is to come. In the past there have been very little options but as people steer away from conventional affairs, the horizon broadens. There are better selections for papers, the type style, printing method, format and the additional effects. When you are creating the invitation think about the type of mood you are trying to create, the formality, indoor or outdoor. Every detail matters.

A very good designer knows the effect of these items collaborating together in creating a distinct and personalized invitation. With that being said, we thought we should show off the designs of one of our favorite designers.

The ring is a symbol of your unending love. Traditionally, the diamond is the stone used in most engagement rings and the most popular classic shape is round. However, there are other options which include princess, emerald, oval, cushion, pear, and marquise cuts. The diamond solitaire (a single stone set on a plain band) is the most traditional style for engagement rings. However, over the years there has been a demand for antique or retro style rings. These designs often have a small side stones and décor around the entire ring. Remember when choosing a center stone for engagement ring, it is always best to choose a natural stone. Some people choose sapphires or rubies, which gives it a little uniqueness.

The stone needs to be secured and this is done through prongs. Prongs are the part of the setting that actually come in contact with the diamond and secure the stone to the band. If the prongs are not secured, there can be a chance that the diamond may fall out. The number of prongs on the ring will vary depending on the shape of the diamond you choose. Make sure the prongs are attached correctly, because they protect your investment in the diamond.

In terms of engagement bands, white colored metals, such as white gold and platinum, are commonly used today. About fifteen percent of people have allergies to the nickel alloy used in white gold. Thus, if a white metal is preferred, platinum or palladium (a soft silver/white metal with characteristics similar to platinum) are good choices.

Row 1: Round Cut Diamond; Loose Diamonds; Diamond Ring

Row 2: Canary; Round Cut; Dover Jewellery

A Little Tip

Cut: this is what gives the sparkle effect because the cut controls how the light enters and exits the diamond.

Clarity: which refers to relative freedom from blemishes. It is rare to find a diamond without any imperfections at all.

Color: there are 300 known colors of diamonds found in nature. Diamonds that have a color other than clear are called “fancy colors” and demand top dollar. As for white diamonds, the best ones are the ones that are close to colorless. The more yellow it is, the less the diamond will shine.

Carat: this refers to the actual weight of the stone. Although carat weight alone does not determine the value of a gem.
