Shopping Tips for Precious Stone Jewelry

8/27/2013

Hello beautiful ladies! Haven't you been mesmerized by precious gemstones? Gorgeous, colorful, stunning and of course, precious, these gemstones are popular for various reasons. We commonly recognize diamonds, sapphires, rubies and other such rare stones as Precious stones. Since antiquity, these gorgeous gemstones are crafted into beautiful jewels such bracelets, rings or pendants and are worn by both men and women. Needless to say, even today every woman wants to own a precious stone jewelry collection of her own.

Never before has buying gemstone jewellery been so accessible. Gemstones and gemstone jewels are not only found in stores across the globe but also at online retail websites. Great, isn't it? This means more and more women can make their dream of owning precious gemstone jewelry come true. However, like everything, this story also has two sides.
While wider accessibility has its advantages, it also gives rise to more sellers who aren't reliable. With increasing demand, chances of artificial or fake gemstone jewelry also arises. It becomes very important to shop carefully and responsibly. After all, it's an investment and you wouldn't want to be fooled into buying artificial jewelry, especially when making the purchase online.


Here are a few tips to keep in mind - 
1. Ask Questions -
Questions show that your purchase is not a frivolous one and that you'd like to know more about what you're buying. Ask all types of questions, about the make, the origin, the price, the actual name, everything you might need to know about the gemstone. When shopping online, make use of the 'Live Assistance' service offered by most websites.
2. Loose Gems -
Most conventional jewelers/websites have their precious stones set in a way that makes it difficult for an ordinary buyer to spot imperfections. To avoid such instances, you can always opt for loose gemstones. For instance, a ruby stone or emerald stone which is a colored gemstone, cannot be inspected well if it is already mounted in a ring or pendant. Their shape, color and carat size can easily be determined if they're bought loose. You can always have them mounted separately after a thorough inspection.
3. Reliable Dealer - 
A good, honest and reliable dealer is what makes a huge difference to your purchase. First, remember to shop with someone you trust and secondly, make sure the dealer/seller is someone who is looking for a satisfied customer and not just profit.
Your dealer should also provide you with gem certification from recognized gemological labs, including statements of origin. These are essential in establishing the authenticity of precious stones like Ruby Stone. An online gemstones shop should also provide a reasonable return policy, avoid retail websites that do not have the same. A vendor should recognize your right to evaluate stones and return them if they don't meet your requirements.
Buying precious gemstones jewels won't be all that daunting if you keep in mind the basic tips suggested above. The more you know about what you're buying, the better your experience will be.

A Pandora charm bracelet is not a fashion item – it is a personally designed piece of jewellery that tells a unique story. In 1999, the iconic PANDORA bracelet concept was created. The first 15 charm designs went on sale in Denmark in 2000, and after two short months stores were nearly sold out and demanded to order more. Ten of the original charms are still part of the collection today, including the silver strawberry.

Un brazalete de dijes de Pandora no es un objeto de moda, es un diseño personalizado de joyería que cuenta una historia única. En 1999, el iconico brazalete de PANDORA fue creado. Los primeros 15 dijes estuvieron en venta en Dinamarca en el año 2000, y después de dos meses ya no quedaba ninguno en las tiendas. Diez de los primeros dijes siguen siendo parte de la actual colección, incluyendo la fresa de plata.

Final NokiaLVK

12/14/2012
pauline oh my dior

Not many of you know but these days I have been enjoying my life moments with the
Nokia Lumia 900 which happens to be an excellent phone, it takes amazing pictures and videos, and
the quality is supreme. I want to thank @NokiaConnects for letting me taste this fantastic phone!

Nokia planned a contest where you had to post the mood boards you create with their cell phone,
the inspiration was the great jewellery from @LeivanKash, a beautiful girl who creates unique
pieces you will love. I love her unicorns rings

I choose to be inspired by her collection named FLORA combined with unicorns because it
reminds me of the magic that fairies in the woods have. Sometimes we forget about
the little ladies that live in the forests, I imagine them with orange, burgundy and gold
pixie dust spreading their love flower to flower.


No muchos de ustedes saben pero estos días he estado probando mi nuevo teléfono, el
Nokia Lumia 900 , lo recomiendo al cien por ciento es un teléfono que toma
fotografías y videos de la mejor calidad. Quiero agradecer a @NokiaConnects por enviarmelo.

Nokia realizó un concurso en el que tenías que postear la inspiración que obtuvieras con
tu celular, el tema era la joyería de @LeivanKash, una chica preciosa que crea
piezas preciosas, mis favoritas son los anillos de unicornio

Decidí inspirarme en su colección llamada FLORA combinada con los unicornios porque me recuerda a las hadas del bosque. Pudo imaginarlas con su pixie dust naranja, burgundy y dorado esparciéndolo por todas las flores.

magic blog

All the photos from these boards I made were taken with the Nokia Lumia 900, I love the quality
and the effects of them. I literally take pictures every where I went, everything that inspired me and 
remind me of the floral magic.

I decided that a great idea will be to create a unique collection that combined the magic with the nature, 
I can imagine ethnic but shiny pieces with unicorn horns and gold accents.


Todas las fotografías de estos boards fueron tomadas con el Nokia Lumia 900, me encantan 
los efectos que pude darles. Literalmente me la pase tomando fotografías a todos los lugares
a dónde iba. Encontré mucha inspiración de magia floral.

Decidí que una gran idea sería crear una colección que combinará la magia con la naturaleza.
¿Se imaginan una colección que sea étnica pero con un toque mágico? tal vez ponerle algunos
cuernos de unicornio o toques dorados.

ohmydiorblog

Another thing that inspired me was that I became a redhead did you know that many fairies
have red hair? it just feels magical to have that colour in your head.

Unicorns like my hair! I actually made a photoshoot with one you can see here.


Otra cosa que me inspiro fue convertirme en peliroja, ¿sabían que muchas pelirojas llevan este color de cabello? ¡Hasta a los unicornios les gusto! Hice una sesión de fotos con uno de ellos la pueden
ver aquí

unicorns

Look at this beautiful sunset picture I took with my Nokia, it looks amazing such magical colours!
Unicorns will and always be my favorite animals they are unique as LeivanKash pieces, the rose ring
from her floral collection is amazing, don't you think?


¡Vean esta fotografía del atardecer! La saque con mi Nokia Lumia, ¡me encanta por sus colores mágicos!

Los unicornios son y serán siempre mis animales favoritos son únicos como los diseños de 
LeivanKash, vean este anillo floral ¿no es precioso?

#nokialvk

I took more inspiration from Christmas and my daily life. I'm so excited to be living one of the
best moments of my life, you will find about it soon in my blog.


Tome mucha inspiración de la navidad y de mi vida diaria. Estoy viviendo uno de los
mejores momentos de mi vida, pronto lo verán en el blog.

oh my dior blog

In the end I was so inspired that I made some illustrations inspired in jewellery and unicorns.

Finally don't forget to take a look at Stylesaint one of the places where I get more of my fashion inspiration.


Al último estuve tan inspirada que realice algunas ilustraciones de unicornios.

¡No se olviden de checar la página de Stylesaint que esta llena de inspiración muy fashion!
