Heart shaped diamonds are the epitome of love and romance. The heart shaped diamond is a unique shaped diamond that creates a feminine look. They are proving to be very popular at the moment and they feature in the category of ‘fancy shaped diamonds’.
The heart shaped diamond has a ‘cleft’ at the top and a ‘point’ at the bottom that creates the heart shape. They vary incredibly in shape being chubbier or thinner depending on the cut. They also exhibit high levels of brilliance and fire. It is the perfect stone for someone who likes to break tradition and make a statement.
They can be contrasted with yellow gold and rose gold that makes an even more feminine feel, or they can be found on white gold or platinum bands for an equally beautiful but different feel.
Named after the colour of the sea, aquamarine is a beautiful pale blue to light green stone that makes a beautiful stone for jewellery. It is available in larger sizes which is great for statement pieces. According to the International Gem Society, aquamarine is said to protect sailors, fishermen and travellers in general as it is linked to the sea. To find out more about vintage aquamarine rings visit their site here Aquamarine Value, Price, and Jewelry Information.
For a gorgeous vintage aquamarine ring choose our Vero Aquamarine Ring. This ring features an octagon shaped aquamarine often sourced from Brazil. It is surrounded by a halo of round brilliant diamonds and the mount and band have milgrain detailing on them. As with all of our gemstone rings you can choose the quality of the centre stone, you can choose from ‘very good’ ‘excellent’ and ‘superior’. This selection will also determine the hue of the stone.
This ring would make a beautiful Valentine’s Day gift for her or the perfect diamond ring for your proposal. Contact us to make your purchase today.
Tanzanite is found as the name suggests in Tanzania, specifically near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, and is a relatively newly discovered stone. It is a blue violet stone. Tanzanite is the birthstone for the month of December and the stone for the 24th wedding anniversary. It is often heat treated to get the amazing blue colour.
The deeply saturated colours are the most popular and thus the most expensive. Tanzanite is found in a range of shapes, but cushion cut and oval cuts are the most popular.
A popular choice of metal for tanzanite is a platinum tanzanite ring because the violet blue shade contrasts beautifully with the ice white of the platinum band. But however, as you can see below, the yellow gold band looks stunning too against the tanzanite and diamonds. The choice is yours.
For a platinum tanzanite ring for your girlfriend’s Valentine’s Day gift, choose our Everest Tanzanite Ring. This special ring is impressive and contemporary. It has a vintage yet modern look and features a striking octagon shaped emerald cut tanzanite at the centre. The band has split shoulders and contains 32 diamonds for added shine and sparkle. This is a distinctive ring; a perfect diamond ring for a proposal and a lovely ring for your girlfriend on Valentine’s Day.
Rubies are Red...
If red is your thing then rubies are the gemstone for you. The ruby is the red variety of the sapphire and it is one of the most popular traditional gemstones to date. They are used to celebrate July birthdays and the 40th wedding anniversary. They are said to symbolise love and happiness.
Most rubies are found in Myanmar and Mozambique. Those found in Mozambique are noticeably different in colour, being darker but clearer. However, those found in Myanmar are seen as the highest standard of ruby. Rubies are coloured sapphires that are pinkish red, purplish red all the way to orangish red.
Choose our Vintage Ruby Halo Ring for a ruby and diamond vintage ring she’ll adore. This ring is vintage inspired with its halo of diamonds surrounding the centre stone and its milgrain detailing. This ruby and diamond vintage ring can be customised to your requirements by choosing the quality of the centre stone. Choose this ring for your girlfriend on Valentine’s Day or choose it as a diamond ring with ruby for your proposal.
