The Different Kinds of Rings

If you’re on the threshold of a major turning point in your life and are making a commitment that should last a lifetime, whatever kind of ceremony you’re planning to formalize, this step will symbolize the intent of a lasting relationship.

Engagement Rings

Choosing the right engagement ring is one of the important life decisions you will ever make. Whether you are choosing a ring for a surprise proposal or your fiancé is choosing an engagement ring with you, we think you will be delighted with the engagement ring collections we have available. Each features diamonds, rubies, emeralds or many other gemstones that have been chosen for their beauty.

Wedding Rings

Weddings can be as elaborate or as simple as you wish. Similarly, wedding rings can also be as simple or as flashy as you wish. But the fit should be just right. We offer a stunning range of wedding bands and bridal sets that will ensure you seal your love in true style. Whether you are looking for a simple gold or platinum band or something a little more opulent, we can help you to find the perfect wedding ring.

Eternity Rings

There are certain times in life where it is important and desired to show your undying love for that special somebody in your life. An eternity ring is one of the most beautiful gestures you can make especially when you choose a striking eternity ring. Eternity Rings are rings that have same sized gemstones embedded all around the ring. These rings are usually in a claw or channel setting. If the stones only go half way around, then it's called the half eternity ring. Our exclusive range of eternity rings offers something for everybody and we would be delighted to help you find the perfect style.

Dress Rings

A dress ring, dinner ring, cocktail ring or fashion ring can be worn every day and for any occasion. Although dress rings are typically large and vibrant, set with glittering precious and semi-precious gemstones, some dress rings are subtler and reserved with plain bands and simple designs.

Wishbone Rings

The wishbone ring takes its name from its likeness to the chicken wishbone. It is similar to a circular ring, however has indentations. The wishbone ring is also known as an “M” ring or “W” ring, depending on how it is worn. Wishbone rings can be plain or contain gemstones and are popular with women as their unique shape can be flattering and appear to elongate the hand. Wishbone rings can be interlocked together to create a beautiful and glamorous effect.

Bands

Bands are the simplest form of ring you can find. Normally it's a flat piece of metal made into a circle.

Solitaire Rings

Solitaire Rings are rings that have a large gemstone in the center which stands out. Depending on the shape of the stone, the rings are called round, oval, square, cushion, etc.

Cluster Rings

Cluster Rings usually consist of gemstones in a cluster setting as the centerpiece. This gives the illusion of one large stone from a distance. Sometimes the cluster setting could also contain one large stone and several stones surrounding it.

Three Stone Ring

Three Stone Ring as the name suggests, this ring contains 3 gemstones, often one larger than the other two and set in the middle. This type of setting is largely popular when combining diamonds and gemstones.

Five Stone Ring

Like the three-stone ring, this ring contains 5 gems set in a row, with or without a combination of diamonds.

Fingerprint Rings

Fingerprint rings are one of the best gift ideas that lasts forever. Whether you want to engrave your fingerprint or get your name engraved on fingerprint rings, they are the best way to express your feelings.

How to Buy the Perfect Engagement Ring

The symbol of the ring and the exchange of the rings during marriage is a symbol of eternal togetherness, happiness and love. Picking the right ring for a proposal or an engagement cannot be an impulsive decision since you're probably looking for something special and affordable at the same time. You can look at different shapes other than the traditional round like the oval or pear shaped which also looks larger than the round shape. It makes for a fabulous gift for any occasion and symbolizes forever, just like its own life as a precious stone. Whatever may be the way you choose your ring, here's a bit of help and advice on making the right purchase.

1. Fix Your Budget

The foremost task you will need to accomplish before stepping in to a jewellery store is fixing a budget. Once you've got an idea of what your budget is, your shopping instantly becomes easier since the out of budget buys get automatically filtered out. Also, if she's hinted or told you what kind of ring she's looking for you can then choose the setting and gemstone accordingly.

2. Educate yourself

If you're planning to surprise her, factor in enough time to research and buy your ring so nothing is hurried about this decision. Make sure you're thoroughly informed about the buying guides for gemstones and diamonds so you get lots or frustrated along the way. Choose something that is timeless and of high quality so the ring remains a symbol of your love forever.

Popular metals for engagement rings are Rose Gold, Yellow Gold, White Gold and Platinum and Gemstones combined with Diamonds. Using her birthstone is an effective idea although make sure you choose the right gemstone since this is a ring she will be wearing every day.

Deciding on carat size is really about striking a balance between size and quality. If she prefers larger jewellery items, and you are working within a budget, you can still find a larger diamond of excellent quality by selecting one which is graded slightly lower in terms of colour and clarity.

Think about what sort of setting will hold the diamond. You'll have to be sure that the setting you choose is made to fit the carat weight of your diamond.

3. Quality

Once you've finalized on the right ring, make sure you check its quality. With the growing popularity of online shopping, quality checks become essential and should not be compromised on. Certifications and Return Policies are crucial. Look into those too.

4. Her Preferences

What colour does she like? What setting would she like? Would she prefer something simple or something with a little more sparkle? Does she have a favourite gemstone? Or a favourite metal? Observe the jewellery she's currently wearing to get an idea of her preferences.

5. Her Personality

Is she social and gregarious? Or shy and reserved? Also, don't buy her something she's already got in her cupboard, this one needs to stand out from the rest of her collection.

6. Custom Make

There are also options where you can design your own engagement ring. We suggest you look at those options too but make sure you do your homework on the 4C's of gemstone or diamond buying. Sometimes a better cut or colour may be the right ring, even though the clarity isn't too high.

7. Ask questions

You could always team up with a friend who knows her to help you out, or better still, ask her to come along and choose her own ring!

8. Know her Ring Size

A lot of men make great mistakes while figuring out the perfect ring size for their lady's finger. You might buy a ring that looks amazing but that does not always ensure the perfect fit. Things can be even more awkward when you get down on one knee and the ring isn't fitting on her finger. A good way to go about this is to get a ring that your future bride is not wearing and get it measured at the jeweller. You have to be sneaky regarding this if you want to surprise her; you can ask one of her friends to pocket the ring while she is not watching.

Once you keep all this in mind while buying the ring, your engagement day is sure to be a special one. Make sure you enjoy the experience of buying and owning a diamond.

What is the Right Fit?

A wedding ring is meant to be worn throughout your life. Make sure that it fits comfortably and stays on. That can be a measure of your care and commitment to this most important relationship.

When you are buying your ring online, you need to know about ring size charts. Read on to get a few tips on how to find a ring that is comfortable to wear and does not slip off.

Finger Size

Note, it is the finger size not the ring size. Fingers have a tendency to swell and slim down over the day. One rule is to take a ring size measurement at the end of the day, when the finger size is considered to be at its widest. This will ensure that the ring is comfortable to wear throughout the day

The Knuckle

When being measured for ring size, you generally feel that if the ring slides easily over your knuckles, it is a good fit. But, if the ring slides too easily over your knuckle, it might actually be a loose fit. It might keep constantly turning around and round on your finger and get banged about. It might even slip off your finger.

The knuckles need to be taken into careful consideration. The ring should fit snugly over your knuckle but should not be loose. It should not be too tight as this might cause problems when you have to slip it off and put it on again. Larger knuckles might require a slightly looser fit while slimmer knuckles can accommodate tighter rings.

The knuckle should stop your ring from falling off. So, once the ring is where it should be, give it a slight push. If it stays on and does not slide over the knuckle you have probably found the right size. Just make sure the ring does not squeeze your finger when it stays on.

Just be sure of basic facts about measurements. If the person for whom you are buying the ring cannot come to the jewellery shop, take care to find the right finger size. Another suggestion would be to find an older ring that he or she uses and use that as a reference. Then, consult the jeweller to pick the right sized ring.

 

What’s your hand type ?

Everyone is unique and so are their physical appearances. Although, hands and fingers are never given so much importance as the face, they make quite an impression if you wish to flaunt the ring on it. The length of the finger coupled with its width lets you find the perfect match. There’s a ring type that flatters even the hand and fingers. In such cases, even the nails become a vital aspect in choosing that dazzling ring.

Longer and slender fingers can easily sport wide bands and princess or round diamond cuts. Slender fingers have an added advantage as they tend to make the centre stone appear bigger than it already is. Cluster rings and asymmetrical designs suit the wider and broader fingers.

Short fingers need to look at options like Marquise or Pear cut diamonds and gemstones that elongate the length. Always look for simple and elegant rings and sleek bands that make the fingers seem slender too!

Even your hands are important. If you have small hands, it is best to keep the size of the ring demure and petite. If you have knotty hands or big knuckles, it is best to wear a ring that draws attention to it than to the knuckles. Heavier rings with wide bands do the trick for such finger types.

How to Secretly Find Her Ring Size ?

For a lot of men purchasing an engagement ring might be their first venture into the world of jewellery and can also be a quite intimidating one too. Even more, you want to go that one step ahead to show your commitment and surprise her with a beautiful engagement ring. Here are a few tips on getting her ring size without her knowing about it. The options range from the straight forward to the sneaky.

The Easy Methods - Get the information from someone close to her.

Ask Her Family

If you have a good rapport with her family, go to them. Make sure the person you choose can keep a secret. See if they could help you in getting the right measurement.

Ask Her Friend

Ask her best friend. Maybe she has recently accompanied your girlfriend/fiancé to a jeweller as she bought a ring. Maybe they have shared their ring finger measurements with each other, just in case. With friends, anything is possible.

The Stealth Methods - If her family can't help and her friend does not know the right size, what are you to do? Don't despair, there are still a few more avenues open to you.

Borrow One of Her Rings

If your girlfriend/fiancé regularly wears different rings, try and borrow one without her knowing. Try to get a ring that she wears on her left-hand ring finger and show it to the jeweller, to let him determine the right size. If that is not possible, note down on which finger she does wear the ring you have borrowed. Make sure that you take a ring that she will not miss for some time.

Measure One of Her Rings

You have tried to borrow one of her rings, but you have failed. Well you can settle for measuring her ring, instead of taking it with you. Pick the ring that is closest to the measurement you want. Make an impression of the ring on a wet cake of soap or a piece of modelling clay. Take this to the jeweller to get the right fit. Note down on which finger the ring is worn.

Measure Her Finger

While your girlfriend is sleeping, get a thick strip of paper and wrap it over her ring finger and note down the measurement. Keep in mind though, that this is not a very good way to get the right measurement.

With a Little Foresight.

Early on in the relationship, when you are sure that the bond is heading in a serious direction, take her to a costume jewellery shop and get her a nice ring for the correct finger. Tell her it is a symbol of your relationship. Be sure to note down the measurement when you find the right size. You don't want to end up asking if you can borrow this ring when you go shopping for the real one.

Things to Keep in Mind

Note down for which finger and which hand you have got the measurement. No two fingers are alike. The hand matters too. The dominant hand tends to have finger sizes that are a half size larger. Make sure you have noted down all the relevant details before you purchase the ring.

If you are buying a wide band ring, get a bigger size as that will be more comfortable to wear. Also keep in mind, some kinds of rings might not be resizable. If the rings have elaborated stone settings or intricate filigree work, it will not be possible to resize it.

It is meant to be worn and shown off. So, take care that you get the most accurate measurement you can before you set out to buy it.

If none of the above conditions work; this will surely work!

Using Gauges

The engagement ring is a statement of your serious intent, your love. So, the element of surprise is not important. Take your bride-to be or groom-to be to the jewellers and have their finger measured for a right fit. Jeweller’s generally have a set of gauge rings that they try over your finger to find the right fit.

If you want to find the fit yourself, some jewellers can lend you a set of plastic gauge rings to take measurements at home. You can also order a set of gauge rings online.

Choosing the Right Chain

Chain Types

While choosing the right pendant is important, it is also important to pick the right chain to accentuate it. There are plenty of variety of chains to choose from depending on your pendant and the final look you're aiming for. While the cable chain is the most popular, you could also look at Box Chains, Rope Chains, Figaro Chains, and Curb Chains.

Box Chain :

It is made from round wire which is rolled flat and then folded into square links that form open boxes or cubes. This gives a sturdy, yet classically smooth, sleek and uniform appearance. This chain will look great with a pendant hanging from it.

Curb Chain :

A curb chain is when the links interlock with each other when laid flat. Most open-link curb chains can only be distinguished by this method. This style of chain has the greatest variety of widths available, from a few millimeters to over two centimeters. With large, substantial links, curb chains are an excellent choice for men's jewellery. Women's curb chains are typically slimmer and have curving shapes instead of flat planes and beveled corners.

Cable Chain :

This is the most common type of jewellery chain and is a much-reduced version of the large chains used on board ships. It is formed of individual oval or round links interlocked in a uniform pattern, with each link lying at ninety degrees to the next. Each section of a cable chain is identical throughout, giving it a simple but classic look.

A single row chain :

The channel of black beads forms a single row chain. These are commonly used in mangalsutra.

Double row Chains :

The two channels of black beads form the double line chain. These are mostly used for mangalsutras.

Chain Clasps

The different clasps that hold a chain are the Lobster Claw Clasp or the Spring Ring Clasp both being easy to handle and a safe way to secure your necklace. Make sure you also store your jewellery well so they don't lose any of their luster. The safest bet is to keep them in the box they came in and not to stuff too many necklaces together in one box. Also make sure your necklaces aren't bent as these weaken the clasps.

Choosing the Right Chain

A chain can be worn to classy evening affair or to work every day depending on the design and the pendant. While longer chains suit closed necks, shorter chains are best suited for longer necklines or summer dresses. Remember that these are timeless pieces so make sure you pick the one you like the best.

A quick guide to picking the right chain is below:

Collar Style, best suited for low necklines or off shoulders used largely for a formal evening or a special day

Chokers, best suited for strapless tops which could be casual or semiformal

Princess, suited best for high necklines but can be worn with anything

Matinee, best suited for very high or very low necklines

Opera, best suited for a formal evening event

However, the pendant and chain and the length of the chain depends on where you'd like the pendant to rest so roughly measure your neckline and then decide on the right chain.

Bracelet & Bangle Buying Guide

The wrist is the perfect place to wear jewellery.

Tennis Bracelets

The in-line thin diamond bracelet that features a symmetrical pattern of diamonds is called a tennis bracelet. In 1987 Chris Evert, the former World No. 1 woman tennis player and the winner of 18 Grand Slam singles title swore an elegant, light bracelet, made by George Bedewi, which accidentally broke and the match was interrupted to allow Chris to recover her precious diamonds. This "tennis bracelet" incident sparked a new name for the item and sparked a huge jewellery trend.

Charm Bracelet

A charm bracelet carries personal charms: decorative pendants or trinkets which are signifiers of important things in the wearer's life. Recently, Italian charm bracelets have become trendy. While traditional charms dangle, Italian charms feature individual pieces soldered flat onto the surface of the link.

Bangle Bracelets

Bracelets that are in firm, solid form are referred to as bangles or bangle bracelets. They can be smooth, textured or set with stones.

Link Bracelets

These bracelets are made from connecting or linking various or similar components or jewellery findings. Link bracelets can be made of a variety of materials included metals and gemstones.

How should you choose the Bracelet or Bangle that suits you best?

Here are a few things you should keep in mind when you’re about to buy bracelets/bangles online :

* As a thumb rule, always buy bracelets or bangles that are 1/2 to 3/4 inches larger than the size of your wrist.
* The standard women's bracelet length is 7 inches. Women's bangles are 7 inches in length with a 2.5-inch diameter. Longer and shorter bracelets are also available. A bracelet that fits well will drape around the wrist without slipping onto the hand or getting in the way.
* In case of diamond bracelets or bangles, choose diamonds of a higher quality and grade.
* Since these jewellery items are usually used for daily wear, choose a setting that is durable and helps keeps the stone in place.
* In case of bracelets, always check the clasp so it doesn’t slip out unnoticed. Ensure the hinges are closed before you put it back in to the jewellery box.
* While picking jewellery designs and metal colour, remember that a great design will attract more attention if it complements your skin tone.
* If you have long slender arms and wrists, chunky bracelets/bangles and cuffs will highlight them. If you are bigger boned in the arms and wrists, wired styles will slenderize them.

Hoops use a tube kind of backing which attaches one part of the circle to the other, called the saddle or latch backing. In hoops where the circle is not complete, normal backings (such as those used for studs) are used.
Hoops are stylish and complement any kind of clothing. They undoubtedly look their best when worn as part of an evening wear outfit. Perfect for any special occasion, hoop earrings are classy, seductive and beautiful especially when encrusted with the finest gemstones.

These are light weight and easy to wear. For this type of back post the earring stem has screw threads so that the back post can easily be tightened. This type of screw is durable, easy to clean, hygienic and is worn mostly by younger generation and children for continuous usage.

South Screw / Screw Back:

South Screw is considered the safest form of posts for earrings. These function like a screw that needs to be inserted into the stem with internal threads and tightened in place. It is considered as the safest mechanism because it cannot unscrew on its own. However, this type of screw may not be suitable for all, as the stem in this case is thick and may be difficult to insert. It is on the expensive side & difficult for quick usage. This type is mostly used by higher age users for continuous wear.

Just follow these simple tips and you will surely attract all the attention of everybody and be the center of attention.

Determine the Face Type

What is your face type, or how do you find out what it is? The answer is quite simply to stand in front of a mirror and trace your face outline on the mirror with a lipstick. Make sure your hair is secured away from your face before you do this. Study the outline and determine the main contours to identify the basic shape of your face. Once you've identified your Face Type, it becomes easier to select jewellery to suit it. Sometimes your face could be a combination of different face types so it's always better to identify the Face Type before choosing your jewellery. Earrings help draw attention to your best features and often complements your style and taste.

Some of the main Face Types are:

Round Face

Generally wide at the cheekbones and in the shape of a circle, often called the baby face due to the soft lines of this face shape. The best suited earrings for a round face tend to be long danglers to take the focus away from the dramatic cheekbones. Square and Oval shaped earrings or Diamonds could also be well suited.

Oval Face

Shaped like an Oval, this face type tends to be wide at the forehead and narrow at the chin, often called a 'long face' as well. This particular Face Type is suitable to any design and is also called the 'ideal' face shape for women. From danglers to studs, the Oval Face Type can carry off any pair earrings with style.

Square Face Type

Square faces are so called because they tend to be proportionate in width and length. A square face would normally have a wide forehead and strong jaw line as well which can often be balanced by a pair of oversized round earrings or large drops or danglers.

Diamond Face Type

A Diamond face is similar to the Oval or Round face type i.e. the cheekbones are the most prominent feature of the face, and narrower at the chin. This versatile face type is suitable for any earring design from smart office studs to lovely evening danglers.

Rectangle Face Type

A Rectangle Face Type has a large and prominent forehead which is its most dominating character. Also known as the Oblong Face Type, a rectangle face would be much longer vertically than horizontally. Since rectangle faces are long, long earring designs should be avoided. On the contrary, earrings that accentuate the cheekbones and take the focus away from the length of the face are recommended like small drops or chandelier earrings.

Jewellery that matches your Skin Tone

India’s diverse climate and geographical terrain has led to Indians developing varied skin tones. Northerners may have cooler skin hues and as we move from north to south, closer to the equator, skin tones appear to change. Skin tones, textures and hair colour become important features that let you decide what metal colour suits and highlights the colour of your skin.

The tone of your skin can be complimented by the right gemstones and metals.

Determining your skin tone is simple. Locate a body area where veins are visible - the wrist serves the purpose. Based on the colour of the veins, skin tone is generally classified as cool, warm or neutral.

Cool Skin Tone:

If you identify bluish coloured veins and pink or rose red undertones, then you have a cool skin tone.

You can play it safe with white gold, platinum and silver jewellery. Diamonds and pearls work best, as do gemstones of pink, purple, blue, red and magenta.

On the other hand, earthy tones such as brown, gold, oranges and turquoise colours paired with either yellow gold or rose gold metal complement this skin tone.

Warm Skin Tone:

Green veins and yellow or yellow or golden-apricot undertones against a white background define warm skin tone.

Choose gold jewellery or gold toned pearls over white gold or platinum. Gemstones with earthy tones in brown, orange, green, yellow, peach and turquoise are a good choice.

Neutral Skin Tone:

This is characterised by predominant pink, yellow or olive undertones.

Lucky for you! Gold, platinum and white gold can be worn, but try to avoid too much yellow or too much blue. Gemstones in white, green, rose pink, brown, soft grey can all be worn without any hesitation.

Jewellery Makeover

Our exclusive Jewellery Makeover Service lets you decipher what style and design of jewellery really complements your face structure, skin tone and personality. Our Jewellery Makeover Consultant would be happy to guide you through the jewellery trends and various options available at your disposal and help you choose styles and designs that would be perfect for you.

Often, women wonder why one piece of jewellery looks stunning on someone but the same style may not suit their own face. Choosing the right design and style of jewellery is as important as buying clothes that suit your body type. Many a times, coloured gemstones complement your eyes and skin, just as how some coloured outfits look better on you. Whatever be your choice of jewellery, it is meant to reveal your inner diva. Chances are you’ll intuitively know what suits you and what doesn’t! Faux jewellery can easily be borrowed from friends but how do you experiment with real jewellery and buy the one that really brings out your best features?

Here are a few tips that would help you effortlessly pick the styles and designs that are perfect for you.

Let’s get started with a face type

To determine your face type, pull back your hair into a bun or tight pony. This will help you accurately figure out your face type. Stand in front of the mirror and identify your face type as one of these shown below. You may not find an exact match, so look for the shape that is closest to your face type.

Oval Face

You’re lucky if you have an oval shaped faced! Considered as the ‘ideal’ face type, the Oval face is well balanced, not overly angular or rounded. The face structure is the widest near the cheekbones and narrows slowly as you go down the jaw line.

Being a soft face type, most jewellery styles like circles, hoop or drop earrings and chokers necklaces look great!

Square Face

Once of the most common face types, the square shape appears to be sharply angular at corners. The jaw is seemingly sculpted and sharp just like Hollywood Actress Lucy Liu or Singer Rihanna.

Drop earrings help in creating an illusion of added length which suits this face type well.

Round Face

Widest at the cheekbones, this face type looks exactly as the name suggests. Typically, this shape is wider than the oval shape.

To add length to the face, tear drop earrings or long necklaces are styles that accentuate the features.

Triangular Face

Similar to the shape of a triangle, this face type is longer at the cheekbones and chiselled at the jaw line.

Button style jewellery and shorter necklaces suit this shape quite a lot.

Heart Face

Heart shaped faces are wider at the temple and narrow at the chin. The cheekbones usually attract attention as they have soft curves at the jaw.

To balance the narrow chin, this face type requires earring styles that are wider at the bottom. Studs, Button Earrings and inverted triangles add some poise to the face.

Diamond Face

Quite uncommon and angular, this face type is characterized with narrow temples and jaw. The face is structured in such a way that the length is widest across the cheekbones. Since the face is very sharp, it can carry more stunning and dramatic designs.

Cut crystals look gorgeous on this face type.

Once you’ve found your match, we’ll bring to you a wide range of earrings and necklaces from our own collection that will complement you and your outfits.

As you must have realized, jewellery makeover is a crucial aspect that helps accentuates the features you love and draws attention away from those features you’d prefer to downplay.

How to Choose Your Wedding Jewellery

It's the most important day of your life and everything has to be just perfect - including your wedding jewellery.

There's sure to be a spring in your step and happiness in your heart as you shop. Given the rush and lack of time, at times shopping for wedding jewellery becomes a rather hurried affair. If you are clear in your mind about your requirements and budget, shopping for your wedding jewellery can be an easy task.

You could also take professional help while buying your wedding jewellery. However, if your budget is tight and you prefer to make your own decisions, here are a few tips on buying the right wedding jewellery.

Selecting the Jeweller

It is important to buy your wedding jewellery from a reputed dealer. This not only ensures quality but you will also be able to pick and choose from a wide selection. Do a bit of research amongst your friends and on the net before narrowing down on potential jewellers. If your family has a favoured jeweller, buy your wedding jewellery from him - you may get better discounts.

Get the Style Right

Be sure that your wedding jewellery co-ordinates with the theme of your wedding. It should also look right with your wedding outfit and hair-do. For example, if your bridal dress is elaborately designed, then simple but elegant wedding jewellery will be perfect. Your jewellery should complement your dress and not overshadow it. Also decide on what kind of hair-do you will be sporting for the wedding. Most women prefer chandelier earrings with an upswept style. For more fussy hair-dos, an elegant pearl or diamond stud will be ideal.

Select Jewellery That is Timeless

Fashion trends will play an important role in the selection of your wedding jewellery. But some fashions are simply timeless. It makes sense to invest in jewellery that will always have allure. After all, you could pass it on to your children as a family heirloom.

Let Your Wedding Jewellery Speak for You

You not only have to look good on your wedding day, you also have to feel good. This is possible only if you are totally comfortable with the jewellery that you have selected. So, select pieces that are in tune with your personality. If you normally prefer the simple look, then your wedding jewellery should reflect this philosophy. If you go against your instincts while shopping for wedding jewellery, you may end up with some beautiful pieces that don't really appeal to you - and this can detract from your glow on your wedding day.

Buy Only What You Need

Weddings can be a financial strain as they often go over budget. Be careful when you shop for your wedding jewellery. Make a list of what you actually need to complete your look. The range of bridal jewellery is wide extending from rings, necklaces, tiaras, bracelets and other specialty pieces depending on which part of the world you live in. But you do not really need to buy everything. Decide on the budget, make a plan and stick to it.

Be Smart!

The days of buying heavy jewellery to wear on your wedding day and then locking it up forever are long gone. Most women now prefer to buy jewellery that they can use time and again.

Buying Jewellery Online

Buying jewellery online is ideal as it does not burn a hole in your pocket and makes the shopping process easier. Whether you are an e-shopping veteran or a first timer, e-shopping has its own charm and advantages.

Speed: Select; click; enter information. This is how easy buying diamonds over the internet can be, and all this when you're just sitting at home.

Convenience: Online shopping eliminates the pain of waiting in traffic, struggling to get a parking space, enduring pushy salesmen and other factors that can exhaust you completely.

Selection: The options available online for purchasing are way wider than what you would find in stores. Shopping online also helps you compare diamonds from different brands and see their pros and cons.

Parameters That Should Make it to Your Checklist

The following checklist will be of great help while choosing the right online store for your shopping plan, because you'll need to gauge the authenticity of the jewels sold and the terms and conditions involved with the purchase.

Customer Service

This can be a major life saver when doubts plague your mind regarding the purchase. The advantage of shopping online will be incomplete without a customer care. Check whether the store from where you are buying the diamond has a customer care service. This matters a lot as you can just pick up your phone and dial if you have any problem.

Return Policy

Read through the site's return policy meticulously. It is vital to know and understand the policy before you buy the stone. Some sites may have a 30-day money back policy, but they might have included a re-stocking fee. It is ideal to go for a site that has a 30-day policy.

If a site doesn't have a return policy mentioned; it would be best to move on without spending much time there.

Nature of Shipment

This might not be a critical issue for cheaper pieces of jewellery, but if you are making a huge purchase online, you should go for a store that provides insurance during shipments. This is one factor that can make a big difference.

Diamond Certificates

A variety of labs offer diamond certificates. However, GIA and AGS are the two renowned labs whose certifications are accepted all across the globe. Ensure that the store that you choose sells diamonds that comply with these standards.

Privacy Policy

If the purchase requires you to give out your personal details, make sure that the site has a privacy policy. This is the only way in which you can safeguard your personal information, which can otherwise lead to problems like identity theft.

Product Images

It is always preferable to go for jewellery items that have good images. High definition images are used by professional jewellers and have their brand indented on it too. So, the next time you buy a piece of jewellery online, see if the image appeals to you as it would give you a fair idea about the product too.

Pricing

Check the pricing of the product you want to buy on many online platforms; this gives you a fair idea about the price difference for the same product. The price for branded jewellery varies from one website to other. Make sure that you are not spending more than you are supposed to.

Conducting your research before making a purchase and comprehensively going through the above parameters can help you in the long run. You can go for a site through word-of-mouth too, as good sites are often reputed and known for their efficient services.

Options while buying Solitaires:

Research tools: Bullet Filters to narrow down results

With access to thousands of diamonds it becomes a daunting task to zero in on the diamond you like. Choose from among various criteria like shape, colour, clarity, carat weight and price. Try various combinations to help you shortlist the results to a few.

Bullet Comparison

You can also view all the diamonds shortlisted in a single view using the Compare button. Just check all the diamonds you are interested in and click compare present at the bottom and top of the list. You can compare upto 4 diamonds at 1 go.

Bullet Advanced Search

Even a narrowed down list can run in hundreds. This is where the advanced search will help you further refine your search. You can use symmetry, polish, fluorescence, Certification lab among others.

Inventory Less Retailing

Retailing has evolved over the years but inventory always continued to hurt retailers. Even with sophisticated supply chain systems in place, a retailer would have to find ways to get rid of old inventory like season end sales, discounts and buy-one-get-one-free offers.

Here the web retailer doesn’t hold the thousands of diamonds in its inventory but offers various research tools to help find a diamond of their choice and budget. The retailer also plays the critical role of educator and after-sales service provider.

Certified Diamonds

A diamond has so many characteristics which affects its value that there is a need for independent body to correctly record them and communicate it to the customers. If any diamond is incorrectly labelled, it could greatly reduce or ‘bump’ its value. Hence it is important that you buy only certified diamonds and that too of certifiers with highest integrity. At Jewelroof, we carry diamonds only by the most reputed certification houses like GIA and IGI.

A certification house lists all the characteristics of a diamond after carefully inspecting them in their labs by trained gemmologists. These characteristics are noted on a uniquely identified report which comes along with all the diamonds you purchase from us. Infact these Unique numbers are laser-inscribed on the girdle of a diamond to ensure the diamond and the certificate match.

Top 5 Mistakes to avoid while buying Jewellery Online

While people often assume that buying the right jewellery just involves showing up in a popular store and picking out the prettiest piece, there's more to buying jewellery than that - here are five mistakes that you should avoid while spending your money on carats and cuts!

If you think that taking the decision to buy jewellery is the tougher part, just wait till you actually start looking through collections - you're sure to be buried under tons of advice that your friends and family members will pile on you, eager to dish out their experiences from the past.

Men, in particular, are more likely to be clueless while buying jewellery for their partners, so here's a quick list of common mistakes that you can learn to avoid while spending your hard-earned cash on sparkly gifts for your companions.

Jewellery Myth #1 - 'More Expensive Is Better'

It's easy to mislead by the assumption that bigger is better', so people (read: men) often end up choosing jewellery based on the price rather than the style of the piece. It's better to fix a budget while buying jewellery as price points in the market can differ widely. In many cases, you might find cost-effective jewellery that looks splendid, so make a mental note never to pick a ring just because it's the most expensive of the lot!

Jewellery Myth #2 - 'Jewellery Transcends Occasions'

Yes, occasions do matter. Proposing to the love of your life with earrings in your hand might not exactly pan out the way you would have imagined it to. Know the occasion and pick your jewellery accordingly. Engagements call for exquisite rings plainly because they can speak volumes about your love and send out a signal that you're in it for the long haul. If you have a knack for steering clear of commitments, diamond studs and earrings will send across the right message.

Jewellery Myth #3 - 'All Jewels are Attractive'

When you're picking up jewels as a surprise gift, ensure that you know the person's tastes and preferences beforehand. You can't jump to the conclusion that your girlfriend loves gold earrings just because she owns three pairs - look closely and see what she prefers to wear on social occasions.

Studded stones that bring out the colour of her eyes might seem like a great idea - till you receive a plastic smile when she excitedly opens the box.

Jewellery Myth #4 - 'What's in a Cut?'

Traditional jewellers often display diamonds of different cut qualities together, just to sell the best available option that they possess. You might miss out on the diamond that has the best cut if you go for the one that looks best. The better the cut, the more brilliant your diamond will be!

Get your facts and needs straight when you decide on buying jewellery, as this will help you make the best purchase rather than the easiest one.

Jewellery Myth #5 - 'Just Drop In and Shop for One'

Jewels are expensive, so get a good idea about the intricacies involved before going jewellery shopping. If you're buying a diamond, you need to look for the 4Cs - Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat. If you're buying gemstones, you should have a good idea about the colours you're looking for, and what you're trying to convey to the person you're gifting it to.

If you're confused on what to buy, don't hesitate to ask for help; you can consult anyone ranging from your mom to experts who know their jewellery. Keep these common mistakes in mind when you pick up jewellery the next time - have fun shopping!
