Jewelry made its place in our society centuries ago. Back in the day, different necklaces and earrings were used as currency and much like today, one’s jewelry could be used to distinguish between different economic classes.

There is a quite a large difference between hand-crafted jewelry, diamond inlaid jewelry, types of metal (gold, silver, platinum) and basic gold plated jewelry. If you are looking for a piece that will last a lifetime, you can choose from a variety of accessories such as, diamond studs, yellow gold necklaces with diamond charms and unique bracelets that are made of high-quality silver or platinum. The options are truly endless.

If you’re deciding which pieces will make it to your jewelry box, here are some factors to take into consideration:

Budget

Before you even start browsing the internet or physically going to well known jewelers, make sure you know how much money you would like to invest. Start with the type of metal you want – silver, platinum, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and so on.

For example, lets say you want a 14 carat yellow gold  bracelet. The average price for 1 gram is around 30 USD, so a bracelet that weighs 10 grams will cost you 300 USD – and a 10 gram bracelet is not exactly mind blowing.

After you chose the metal type, decide if you want to include diamonds. If so, how many carats would you like? What is the clarity grade? Which shape is your favorite? All of these factors can drastically change the price so make sure you are able to stick to your budget and adjust as necessary.

Style

Jewelry and fashion go hand in hand. Therefore, you should think of your style and about what you wear on a daily basis/ more upscale events. Obviously, there is a big difference between the two and when selecting the right jewel, it’s always a smart move to find the middle ground.

Keep in mind that there are classic styles, modern, vintage and so on. Don’t be afraid to play around! On top of that, selecting the right length, width and size of either your necklaces, bracelets or diamond earrings is also important as it can greatly impact the look of your fine jewelry piece.

All In all, if you’re thinking of purchasing hand crafted diamond earrings, bracelets or necklaces, be sure to check out our new collection here at NatureSparkle and choose your favorite jewel with a simple click of a button.

Shopping for an engagement ring can be quite a complicated task. There are many things you need to take in consideration while purchasing the special ring. First of all you need to choose to main stone and determine what is the shape, carat, color and clarity. After that, you need to match the type of metal to the center stone and you can choose from yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, silver and ct.

Except those regular elements you must pay attention too, you can also choose from a verity of wedding bands that will complete the over look of your gorgeous engagement ring. The band itself is ring without a main stone and usually it has several smaller diamonds mounted to it. By having a wedding band you create a prestige look that everyone around you will notice.

The quality of the band

In order to make sure you purchase high quality wedding band, you should really go on a market research and meet with some trusted and well known jewelers. Most people assume that when you purchase a quality ring from a trusted jeweler it means that they will have to spend a lot money – well that’s not the case.

Purchasing from a trusted business gives you a certificate of authenticity and guarantee that the ring is high quality. Another important factor you should know of when buying a wedding ring from a known jeweler is that you get a non-conflict diamond or in other words an ethical diamond.

Type of metal: gold, platinum or silver?

Choosing the perfect metal for you depends on your own personal taste, but after a lot of experience in this area we can say that gold is the most popular metal and that is because it can really match any style of diamond. Platinum is mostly common with men, and this metal is quite heavy and strong. Last but not least is silver which is most of the times the affordable option and doesn’t cost as much as the other types of metals.

And what about matching the style?

As we purchase a wedding band we definitely think of matching it to the engagement ring. You should always think of the stone size and shape so it can really have a matching style with the main stone. Other than that, if you chose a specific color of metal, it is recommended to get the wedding ring with the same type of metal.

Besides the fact that you should match the styles between the engagement and wedding ring, you can think of also matching the style to your partners ring. Also, while you can choose to get a plain ring, you have the option to mount diamonds into it or even gems, either way always remember that the band shouldn’t take the spot light from the engagement ring.

In case you haven’t decided on the wedding band you want to get, we offer you a verity of stunning hand crafted rings that we make here at Nature Sparkle. All you need to do is browse around and you will definitely find the one for you and your partner.

Thinking of purchasing an engagement ring for your soulmate? Don’t know which shape, size or color will be the best? Well, rest assured you are not alone. Choosing the perfect ring and diamond can be a complicated task and therefore you should conduct a thorough survey to make sure you are aware of all the stunning options you have out there.

Here at Naturesparkle, we handcraft all of our jewelry. Being in the diamond industry for many years, we can honestly say that a 2 carat oval diamond ring is one of the most popular and famous stones worldwide.

What Should you Notice When Purchasing an Oval Cut Diamond?

You are probably asking yourself, how did this shape become so popular? Well, the reason this stone is so desirable among many people is because of its unique cut. The cut is the shape of the diamond and in the oval cut you can find a brilliant combination of a round cut diamond and a pear cut.

Another reason the shape is so popular is due to the fact that oval shaped diamonds tend to look bigger than the round cut, and as we know – the bigger the better.

Finally, who wouldn’t like to have a diamond that elongates shorter fingers? This shape is super flattering on any hand for that reason.

While understanding the reasons for this shape’s  popularity is important, knowing how to purchase the right stone is an art. When you decide to purchase an oval cut diamond make sure that you deal with an authorized and well known brand that can really give you a peace of mind when you are purchasing.

In regards to the diamond itself, the correct and most proportional size is 1.33-1.66 (length to width). However, in case you’re considering adding some more side stones or changing your setting you should think of getting a wider center stone.

Another important factor you should really pay attention to is the bow-tie effect. This term refers to the specific area in the stone where the sparkle is diminished and the diamond has a bit of dullness. All ovals will have a tiny bit of bow-tie effect but you want to avoid it as much as you can. Nature Sparkle is well known for our flawless shapes, incredible shine and with limited to no bowtie effect in our diamonds.

Different Styles for Oval Diamond Engagement Rings

When choosing an oval shape diamond, you should be aware that unlike other stones, this one can really fit with both classic, modern, and even vintage engagement ring designs. In regard to the type of metal, you can easily choose yellow gold, white gold, platinum or even rose gold. The oval shape will look wonderful in any of these options.

If we dive deeper in order to find the perfect size, we can see that the 2 carat oval diamond usually has the best measurements and therefore it has quickly became very popular with a lot of people. If you come to a conclusion that the oval cut diamond is for you, we welcome you to check out our engagement ring’s page and contact us so that we can help you find the ideal oval shape you’ve been dreaming of.

Every year a new trend emerges from the diamond realm. For decades, the round shape diamond stayed at the top, being the most popular because of its classic look and the ability to adapt to any style. Whether it has a more classic design or modern.

While most people tend to be more  conservative with their style, the connection to the round shape is quite obvious. Even though the round shape continues to be one of the most beloved diamond cuts, we’ve been starting to notice a rise in popularity of emerald, radiant and oval shapes. More and more people are looking to purchase one of these stunning diamond shapes, and specifically the elongated variations.

What is an Elongated Shape?

Some shapes such as emerald and cushion cuts can appear longer and elongate the finger at the same time. For example, an elongated emerald shape is basically a longer and more elegant version of the basic and proportional stone.

Standardly, the most common measurements of cushion cut diamonds have a  length-width ratio of 1-1.05 for the square variations and a ratio of 1.15-1.30 for the rectangular cushion cut diamonds. The elongated version comes in larger length to width ratios. At  the end of the day, it is a matter of personal preference.

The Emerald Cut Diamond

An emerald shaped diamond is notorious for its geometric shape that immediately captures the eye.  This fancy cut diamond is glorious, and with the right color and clarity we are most definitely talking about one of the most stunning rocks out there.

The same as with every diamond, choosing the perfect size is all about personal taste but there is an average size of  1.10 – 1.70 which is highly recommended. The emerald shape is gorgeous by itself, but an elongated version will be sure to attract admiring glances.

The Perfect Oval Diamond

The oval shape is truly unique and is famous for being a perfect combination of the classic round shape and distinctive pear shape. If you look at an oval diamond you will see that its elongated shape and two rounded edges  give it an overall sophisticated look.

The rising trend can be credited to celebrities like Hailey Baldwin who boasts a 10 carat oval diamond engagement ring.  Scarlett Johansson who has an oval diamond worth $400,000 and Blake Lively who has a stunning 12 carat diamond worth $10,000 dollars.

The Incredible Radiant Diamond

If you feel more connected to square shaped diamonds, there is no doubt that you will love the radiant cut. The radiant cut is a combination of cushion and princess shaped diamonds and will be sure to pop on an engagement ring if it has some beautiful smaller square side stones around it.

You can’t deny that there is a special feeling on Valentine’s day. It seems as if the sky is painted pink and the air is filled with the smell of fresh flowers. Sounds like a perfect environment to pop the question doesn’t it? We can all agree that Valentine’s day is magical, but what is the best way to propose? There isn’t one way that will suit everyone so it’s important that you consider your partner’s personal preferences. In order to help you understand which way will be most suitable for you and your partner – here are some great and creative tips from our love doctors at NatureSparkle:

  1. Keep it simple – While some people love a huge event filled with glitter and unicorns, others may want a simple moment of intimacy with their partner. It really depends on the true nature of your partner and assuming you really know each other, you can easily determine if he or she would like to have a “grand fiesta” or a simple moment of peace and quiet.

  2. Pick the right place – Location is definitely one of the most important factors you should take into consideration. There are gorgeous indoor venues where you and your partner can share your special moment with your loved ones and a fulfilling cozy vibe.

    On the other hand, you can always choose an outdoor location like the beach, the woods or any other special place that you both have a strong emotional connection. Either way, make sure you know exactly where that place is  ahead of time, so you don’t get any unwanted surprises that can “kill” the moment.

  3. Family and friends – having your closest family and friends can create a truly happy moment for you both, but having those surroundings aren’t for everyone. It’s perfectly fine if you and your partner want to share this special occasion just the two of you and announce the engagement more privately.

  4. Choose the perfect engagement ring – remember that at the end of the day you are going to propose with a diamond that you have chosen, the design you thought of and the moment you have been preparing for so long.

    There are many different options you can choose from, starting from the shape of the diamond, the size of it, the clarity and so on. Besides the main stone, you need to think of the design of the ring itself and the type of metal (yellow gold, platinum, white gold..)

    If you’re not sure of how to choose the specifics of the ring, we recommend that you check out our ultimate guide to selecting the right diamond engagement ring.

Remember there are many creative ways to propose to the love of your life and bottom line, you are the only one that can make the perfect decision for you both.

There is no doubt that the diamond industry is booming and the variety of different shapes, carat, clarity and color might be a bit confusing for those of you who are not sure how to choose the center stone for your engagement ring.

Instead of confusing you more and writing a detailed guide that won’t give you the answer you’re looking for, say hello to a specific and super gorgeous 2 carat cushion cut diamond ring that became very popular in the past decade.

First comes first, what is a cushion cut?

A cushion cut diamond has a shape of a pillow and it is a perfect cut for any engagement ring. The design itself is geometric but the edges are curved and super soft so adding an additional smaller diamond to the setting or combining an elegant wedding band will give the ring an impressive appearance.

While you can choose a different carat weight for the main diamond, we believe that a  two carat diamond makes a real statement without being too over the top (if there is such a thing). This weight gives you a nice volume for the stone but still remains classy and stylish.

What is the difference between size and carat?

The carat of a diamond refers to its weight, while the size only refers to the measurements (width and height), therefore you can find two diamonds with the same carat weight but different sizes and that depends on the way they are cut. On the other hand, you can have two diamonds of the same size, but different carats.

What about the cost?

Needless to say, the carat weight has a major part in effecting the total price of the diamond – therefore the same stone (color, clarity, shape) with different carat weight will cost accordingly. If you choose a 2-carat cushion cut diamond, know there are certain measurements for the stone that are ideal. We recommend having a 7.34mm x 7.34mm Surface for 2 Carat Diamond.

Cushion cut Vs. Emerald cut diamond

While the emerald cut diamond has its glory and exudes a certain kind of elegance a 2 carat Cushion cut diamond has much more sparkle and a flashier finish. What you will get from a diamond that size and cut will is be for a lifetime.

By the way, Kim Kardashian had a major influence for the rise in popularity of this amazing cushion cut shape when she got A 15-carat D, flawless cushion-cut diamond for an estimated price of $2 million USD. With the huge publicity that appeared all over the media we see that the demand for this unique cut is increasing rapidly.

No doubt the cushion cut is famous for its stunning shape and overall design.  If you are thinking of surprising the love of your life with a mesmerizing diamond – the cushion cut is most defiantly the right choice for the job.

You have said yes and now it is time for one of the most important purchases of your life, an engagement ring. This is one of the most exciting types of shopping but much like buying a luxury handbag or a car, that is well above your budget, diamond engagement rings also have a vocabulary of its own. You need to know about diamond carats and types, clarity and shapes to be happy with your choice. You don’t need intensive research to select the ring you need, just our guide that will empower you in your decision.

The Four Cs in Diamond Engagement Rings

The qualities that determine the diamond’s value and appearance are the color, cut, carat, and clarity. This is what these 4Cs mean:

Color: A diamond that is structurally perfect, has no hue and the colorlessness of a white diamond is also graded from D to Z. A colorless diamond is of the highest quality while a pale yellow hue, for example, is lower quality. A D grade is incredibly rare, but G and H grades are very close to being colorless but lower priced than a D, which makes them outstanding value diamonds. As you move towards Z the grade is lower and the yellow hue will be more apparent. As well, I-J grades are most suitable for yellow gold and rose gold. You also have colored diamonds but they are just as rare with only one in 10,000 with natural color, which makes them the highest valued diamonds.

Cut: The cut of the diamond refers to the facets of the stone and the way light reflects on it. The shape is also closely interrelated to the cut. You have a myriad of shapes that can run gamut from square, emerald, oval or teardrop and brands like Brooklyn Lilly tailor diamonds to your preference. Designers embrace unique shapes and go outside the typical shapes to include anything from a rose hexagon to an elongated lozenge. Therefore, take into consideration that the cut isn’t the shape or size but the proportions and angles. While nature determines the rest of the Cs, this is an important decision as it will determine the internal and external brilliance.

Carat: The carat of a diamond is the weight measurement, irrespective of the cut. The carat is certainly the most important consideration as the increased carat size indicates rarity and price. An important factor that you need to know is that the actual size does not necessarily mean it is a higher carat. When you have a diamond with a shallow cut and a lower carat size, it could be larger in appearance compared to a deeper cut and bigger carat size. A diamond’s size appearance will also depend not only on shape but the mounting and design that you choose. For example, an emerald or pear-shaped design will give the appearance of a larger diamond with the larger surface area as well as a halo will also give the appearance of a larger diamond when it is indeed small.

Clarity: You could have heard of a flawless diamond, which is extremely rare and also graded like color. A diamond with fewer inclusions or impurities is more expensive and clearer. For example, SA1 is 100% eye clean. The diamond’s inclusions are natural and happen during its formation in the earth and crystallized under pressure and heat. When you get a diamond graded in SI1 and SI2 ranges their imperfections could be visible to the naked eye.

We trust that we made it easier for you when you shop for diamond engagement rings and keep in mind that your jeweler choice is just as important as choosing your diamond.

White gold is very popular among many people that are looking to find a unique yet elegant appearance in their jewelry. The prestigious metal alloy has many characteristics you should know about before purchasing it.  In this guide you will find great tips and important information you should take in consideration when looking at white gold jewelry.

So, what is white gold?

While most of us look at the shiny metal and think to ourselves that it has a diamond color more than gold, the truth it is yellow gold combined with other different metals. When the basic yellow gold is mixed in a proper way, the alloy becomes more durable and sustainable and the white effect comes to life.

The process of making white gold

As mentioned before, the process of creating white gold requires mixing yellow gold with different metals like copper, nickel, silver and others. With each and every single metal we can get a different shaded result that creates the white alloy. Another important factor that affects the finale look of the yellow gold to seem whiter is the amount or proportion between the materials.

The reality indicates that the final product will appear yellowish and in order to create a complete transformation, there is a need to plate it with rhodium. Without this critical stage of plating the gold piece with rhodium, you will not get that glorious famous look for the alloy.

The rhodium plating also makes the alloy long lasting compare to standard yellow gold.

Is white gold pricy compare to yellow gold?

Well, because of the process and transformation that white gold needs to go through, usually it is more expensive than yellow gold. The 2 main reasons are the type of metal that has been used for the mixture during the process and the fact that the alloy becomes more durable which increases the item’s value.

Additionally, the rhodium coating also has its impact, price wise. It is considered an expensive process that most white gold items must go through.  So, if you are planning to purchase white gold engagement ring for example, expect a higher price if the ring has rhodium coat.

While white gold is more expensive than yellow gold, it is less expensive than platinum. The alloys of both metals indeed look the same, but actually white gold was created as a more affordable alternative to platinum.

Maintenance of white gold

Compare to yellow gold, white gold actually need more attention and maintenance in order to have its bright and shiny color. The alloy needs cleaning once in a couple of months, and the rhodium must be preserved. It is important to say that quality deep cleaning needs to be done by a professional but you can use “do it yourself” methods that can help the overall appearance of white gold engagement rings and other fine jewelry.

White gold is available in 14K and 18K purity. The difference between the two is that 14K white gold is 58.3 pure and 18K is 75% pure.

Why should you choose white gold engagement rings?

The white gold has amazing qualities that makes it affordable, elegant and a unique sparkle to it. If you seek for luxurious look but you prefer not to invest too much money as in platinum, the white gold is a perfect match for you.

Besides that, the color of the metal blends well with other jewelry and it is very fashionable. While having said that, white gold engagement rings are noticeable and super popular among people that would like to emphasize their own style.

If you look for a gorgeous piece that has tons of style combined with elegancy, white gold is definitely the right choice for you and you can look at Nature Sparkles beautiful catalog that will inspire you with other ideas.

Pear shaped rings are made with a stunning “cut” that fits smaller or larger hands, and it can’t be worn unnoticeably. This shape symbolizes a versatile look while in one perspective it has a natural and classic look, and on the other hand it can be super sophisticated and modern.

Pear cut solitaire diamond ring has the perfect structure for an engagement ring, basic ring or even different jewelry like necklaces and earrings. When searching for the impeccable stone, there are a few things you need to take in consideration:

  • Parameters of pear cut stone – the pear cut is gorgeously designed to be the middle ground between classic round and marquise cut. Mostly, this special cut has on average 58 facets, and sometimes much more.

The ratio (length & width) reflects directly on the symmetry of the stone, and that’s why most people prefer to purchase a diamond that ranging between 1.50 – 1.75.
