For the metal, Neil Lane wedding rings can create the ring that can either be made of yellow gold, white gold, silver or platinum. Gold and silver are the typical metal used in jewelry decades ago. You can even choose to have a band which is dual colored or tri-colored. With the advent of platinum, it became the choice metal of today since it is noted for its durability.
Much of the perception of size depends on the shape of the diamond. Traditionally, people prefer round diamonds. But fancy shaped diamonds look larger than round diamonds. Elongated shapes like marquise, pear and oval make the rock look bigger than it actually is.
The first thing I do, is go over to staples and have about two sheets of wallet sized photos printed in color. It costs about .59 cents, and is much cheaper than using your printer.
Platinum, the most stylish, expensive and hardest metal truly signifies endurance and love for ages. It is not mixed with other cheaper metals as the gold making it ideal for those allergic to other metals.
Basically, you have to separate them from your Jewelry new, necklaces and watches. You can seal each bangle inside separate plastic bags so that they won’t scratch one and the other. After that, you should store them inside your jewellery boxes or inside a faux velvet pouch. By doing so, you will be able to protect your bangles from getting cut by sharp edges.
Look for a stone that scores high on colour and cut, without worrying so much about clarity. There will be imperfections there, but use a loupe (it’s a strong magnifying glass) to check out the stone before you buy it. The carat, of course, refers to the size of the diamond – and the bigger it is, the bigger the price. Don’t be swayed by such comments as “total carats” as it may just be a piece made from a lot of little, low value chips, rather than one solitaire.
Auctions are the prestigious way to sell estate jewelry. There is an air of sophistication in liquidating jewelry through a major auction house. The nationally known auction houses like Christie’s, Sotheby’s and the like have pricey set up costs and standards. High end jewelry is best suited for these auctions. There are many regional and local auction houses that can sell estate jewelry in the mid range. Auctions can be very risky, because the end price is unknown, but the risk can bring a very positive selling price. The keys to selling your estate jewelry at auctions are finding the right house for your particular jewelry, knowing the best time to sell, and luck.
