What Is The Best Way Wear Layered Necklaces?

A great way to start a layered look is with a versatile diamond solitaire necklace. A solitaire pendant worn alone is elegant, classic look, but when paired with multiple other necklaces

A trend we’ve be seeing recently is symbols like diamond accented crosses or initials set asymmetrically in mixed metals like white and rose gold. This gives off a charming, effortless effect while being perfect for layering. One pendant can sit off to one side while the other necklaces are centered.

Adiamor’s new bracelets and necklaces are an ideal way to try the layered look. Featuring symbols like crosses and pyramids, the new styles come in white, yellow and rose gold.

All of the necklaces featured at left are under $500.00 at Adiamor.

Continuing the Vintage love, some of the hottest diamonds right now are Asscher cuts; these distinctive diamonds feature it’s signature X in the center, and their tiered faceting creates a Hall of Mirrors effect that is simply irresistible! Adiamor recommends sticking with a high clarity grade when selecting an Asscher cut diamond engagement ring, as these cuts showcase the clarity and transparency of the diamond much like an Emerald cut.

We’re seeing TONS of peonies as the bloom of choice to use this year, and brides are mixing it up in a big way by incorporating feathers, wheat, succulents and even kale into their bridal bouquets. The perfect finishing touch is wrapping your stems in ribbon or lace and finishing with a special charm such as an antique brooch, cameo or other item that has special significance.

Trendy Engagement Rings: Right or Wrong?

Pegging the style of your one true love is a pretty nifty trick, and one that most guys have a difficult time nailing, especially when it comes to choosing the one piece of jewelry she’ll wear for the rest of her life. And one question is particularly plaguing: should you go trendy or timeless when you purchase an engagement ring? You’re going to have to consider not only what she likes right now, but what you think she might like down the road (unless you are okay with an upgrade every few years to stay on top of current trends). However, there are a couple of tricks to help you decide whether trendy is the right choice for your special someone.

In truth, you can have the best of both worlds if you do a little research. As it happens, fashions tend to recycle themselves. If you look at wedding rings over the last hundred years, you’ll see that styles that are in vogue today have likely gone in and out of fashion several times. In fact, many rings that are considered modern and fresh have actually been recycled from decades past (although possibly tweaked slightly). Because of this “everything old is new” mentality when it comes to engagement rings, you can get a good idea of which trends seem to stick.

But what if she loves a trend that is tacky? While you can’t really go wrong with a diamond, you may be reticent to purchase a pink or yellow stone just because it is popular now. Or you might find modern settings hideous. Don’t worry too much about things like that.

In short, you really have to consider the sensibilities of your soon-to-be fiancé when you set out to buy her ring. If trendy is what she wants, then you may be best served to show you pay attention to her fashion sense. On the other hand, if you get down on one knee and offer her a gorgeous, classic, Tiffany-style solitaire, what are the odds she’ll refuse to put it on her finger?

Classic or Trendy: Which Engagement Ring Style is Right for You?

When it comes to buying an engagement ring, women have many different criteria. But when contemplating the basic style, there are those who lean towards classic, while others gobble up every passing trend. If you’ve surveyed your girlfriend’s jewelry box but you’re still unsure about what to get her, there are a few things to consider before you buy the ring she’ll wear for the rest of her life.

The most important thing is the stone. Obviously, you’ll want to get a diamond. The setting, including any the band and any accents, are really only there to display the central stone, so that’s what you should focus on first. So you must address the four Cs. Color is a good place to start. While colored diamonds (pink, yellow, blue, even black) have become very popular in recent years, and they can be extremely beautiful, there are a few problems. For one thing, they can be rare and subsequently, carry a heftier price tag. In addition, they will most likely go in and out of fashion, so you can’t expect them to hold their value. Even beyond that, color preference is subject to individual taste, so if you’re considering this as an heirloom piece that will be passed on to your daughter or granddaughter, you may want to ensure that it’s something any woman would wear. Of course you should take your soon-to-be-fiancé’s feelings into account. If she has her heart set on a pink diamond, you’d better get her what she wants. But if you’re unsure, you really can’t go wrong with the traditional, classic, colorless diamond.

If you do decide to go classic, it will probably give your budget a little wiggle room, so use your extra cash to go for a larger stone (higher carat), or better clarity, which will ensure the stone holds its value over time. As for cut, there are several options, but deep, round-cut diamonds offer the most brilliance, which is why they are the staple of the diamond solitaire ring. As for setting, you can go modern or traditional, with a simple band or loads of baguettes, depending on her taste, since it is easy enough to re-set the stone if she changes her mind.
