  • Choosing Your Wedding Ring

    If you’re reading this post, you’re probably either engaged or about to be engaged— congratulations! The time between your engagement and your wedding is a special period in your life. It’s a time to bask in the glow of your impending marriage and, of course, plan for your wedding. One of the most exciting parts of wedding planning is choosing your wedding rings. But with so many wedding ring options, how do you know which to choose? Read on to learn everything you need to know about choosing your wedding ring!

    You Don’t Have To Match (But You Can)

    A classic metal band is a common option for couples who decide to match their wedding bands.

    When you’re shopping for your wedding rings, you have two rings to find. While you can choose a matching set, you should know that it’s actually much more common today for the bride and groom to choose separate designs. There’s no right or wrong choice here, you can choose a set or go with different styles— choose what’s right for you. But you should decide this early so you know whether you’re searching for one or two designs.

    Pick Your Style

    Once you know whether you’re looking for one or two wedding band styles, it’s time to move on to picking your style(s). If you’re going to match, you will likely want to pic a more simple style. But if you’re going to choose separate styles, you can choose whatever each of you likes the most.

    There are many different styles of wedding rings. There are simple classic rings, sleek modern options, ornate vintage designs, and glamorous diamond studded rings.

    Do a little browsing and see what you’re drawn to the most. Do you want something simple? Something eye-catching? Something that will complement your engagement ring? Once you know what you’re most interested, you can start narrowing in on the exact ring that’s right for you.

    Budget

    wedding ring
    A wedding ring without diamonds, like this swirling rose gold design, is an affordable, yet still beautiful option.

    Just like when shopping for an engagement ring, it’s a good idea to have a budget in mind before you shop. Wedding rings have a wide price range, with simple metal bands at the lower end and diamond or gemstone bands on the upper end (more, larger, or higher quality gemstones will increase your price). Also, different precious metals can affect a ring’s price, as platinum and 18k karat gold are more expensive materials than 14k gold.

    14k white gold, used here in this intricate diamond set wedding ring, gives a similar look to platinum, but at a more budget-friendly price.

    There’s no rule on how much you need to spend on your wedding bands. Just consider what the style you’re interested in usually costs and how much you want to spend, then decide on a budget that’s right for you as a couple.

    Find the Right Precious Metal For You

    A yellow gold wedding band is a traditional precious metal option.

    Wedding bands come in many different precious metals, like platinum, yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold. When choosing your precious metal, you’ll want to consider two things: style and your lifestyle. Different precious metals can drastically change up the style of a ring. For example, yellow gold is has a classic look and platinum is quite modern. So, know that your choice of precious metal will have an effect on the style of your ring.

    This tungsten carbide wedding band is durable and sleek.

    However, for many people, considering lifestyle is also important. Why does this matter when choosing a precious metal? Certain metals are more durable than others. If you’re a highly active person, you might want to consider choosing a ring made of stronger materials, like platinum or tungsten carbide. Or, if you have your heart set on a gold ring, go with 14k gold instead of 18k gold, as 14k gold is more durable. Of course, if you know you’ll be careful when wearing your ring, you can choose your precious metal solely based on style. All precious metals are durable (even 18k gold), some are just more so than others.

    When it comes to buying an engagement ring in a major city like Los Angeles, there are many places to shop. However, just as with engagement rings, not all jewelers are created equal. When searching for the best place to buy your engagement ring, there are some things to keep in mind, like the reputation of the jeweler and what services will come with the ring. To help you make a great choice when searching for an engagement ring jeweler, we’ve put together this list of things to look out for during the buying process.

    Prioritize Quality and Certification

    Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 5.02.13 PM

    A dazzling double halo Amavida engagement ring from Bridal Rings Co.

    One of the most important things to look for when buying an engagement ring is high quality, certified materials. This, of course, includes the center stone you’ll be buying. Most people choose a white diamond for their engagement ring, but colorful gemstones are also becoming popular choices. But for both diamonds and gemstones, you’ll want to make sure that your stone comes with proper certification. You should never buy a stone that doesn’t come with official certification from an accredited institution, such as the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). At Bridal Rings, all of our gemstones come with official certification, so our customers can feel comfortable knowing the exact specifications of the gemstones they select.

    Additionally, the quality of your stone is important. Diamonds are graded according to the 4Cs: carat, color, clarity, and cut. Which qualities are most important to you will depend on your personal tastes. One thing that’s important to know when choosing a jeweler is that they should help you understand these qualities and guide you to a stone that you will love. Which brings us to our next point: you should expect nothing less than excellent service from your jeweler.

    Expect Excellent Service

    Buying fine jewelry, such as an engagement ring, is unlike any other buying experience. And for many people, their engagement ring is the first major fine jewelry purchase they’ll make. Buying fine jewelry comes with many considerations, like how durable the materials of the ring are, what the exact quality of the ring is, and what styles are available. Your jeweler should guide you through the buying process and help you easily understand your options, as well as help you find styles you like.

    At Bridal Rings, excellent customer service is our top priority. We take great care to make sure each of our customers has the best possible shopping experience. Each of our staff members is a trusted diamond expert who strives to give our customers a concierge experience. We fully guide our customers through the buying process, helping them with everything from selecting their ring to teaching them how to care for it. Additionally, we also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, free lifetime cleaning and maintenance on all of our products, and even include a complimentary insurance appraisal for all of our customers.

    Know Your Jeweler’s History and Reputation

    Another important thing to consider is a jeweler’s history and reputation. It’s crucial to buy from a reputable dealer who has experience in the business and a trusted reputation. If you buy from an unknown dealer, there are many variables that could end up being disastrous. You could end up with a poor quality ring or be unable to get help with any problems you may have with a bad ring, which is simply something you don’t want to risk with something as important as an engagement ring.

    At Bridal Rings, our team of expert jewelers are experienced and responsive. We are a family owned company that has been in business for more than 35 years. Located in the world famous LA Jewelry District, we’ve been providing impeccably crafted jewelry and excellent service to our customers for decades. Additionally, Bridal Rings is also proud of our excellent reputation on Yelp, where we have a five star rating and hundreds of positive reviews.

    Buy From Somewhere With a Great Selection

    Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 5.05.59 PM

    When shopping for an engagement ring, it’s also important to buy from somewhere with a great selection. There are many different kinds of engagement rings, so it’s important to buy from somewhere with good variety so you can find something that is not only high quality, but also suits your tastes. At Bridal Rings, we’re proud to carry a wide selection of engagement rings from excellent brands, which span an array of styles. We have rings from excellent companies such as Coronet, Gabriel & Co, Artcarved, and more. Additionally, since we also handcraft jewelry in house, we’re able to create custom rings for our customers.

    Get the Best Price

    Lastly, let’s talk about getting a great price for your engagement ring. When it comes to higher priced items like fine jewelry, it’s always a good idea to consider buying from a smaller, family owned jeweler. This is because jewelry from “big name” jewelers often comes with a major mark up. Instead of merely paying for the quality and craftsmanship of a ring, you’re also paying a huge mark up for the name brand of the ring.

    Additionally, in Los Angeles there are some excellent options in the LA jewelry district where, instead of paying for a marked up ring, you can get a wholesale price. At Bridal Rings, we save our customers money by buying our materials wholesale. We directly import materials, saving our customers on middle men costs, to ensure that we can offer excellent prices that are 30% to 70% below retail.

  • Tips For Buying an Emerald Cut Engagement Ring

    Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 4.46.34 PM

    Emerald cut engagement rings have a classic glamour. This flashy step cut diamond shape has long been a favorite of glamorous celebrities, from old Hollywood stars like Elizabeth Taylor to modern day icons like Beyonce. If you’re thinking of selecting this gorgeous diamond shape for your own engagement ring, keep in mind that buying an emerald diamond requires some special considerations. To help you make the best pick, check out our tips for buying an emerald cut engagement ring.

    Understanding the Emerald Cut

    The first thing to know before buying an emerald cut diamond is what exactly qualifies as an emerald cut. Emerald cut diamonds have a distinctive look. From the top, they look like a rectangle with cut corners and they feature unique step facets. Step facets are different from the more common “brilliant” style cut, which is what most round diamonds are cut with. Instead of having many varying shaped small facets, step cut shapes like the emerald have larger, rectangular facets that are arranged in parallel lines. These lines reflect and refract light in a “flashy” way, in contrast to the more shimmery effect of a brilliant cut. They also offer a more clear, pure view of the diamond itself, allowing the true beauty of the diamond to shine through.

    The emerald cut is not to be confused with radiant and asscher cuts. Radiant cut diamonds have the same overall shape as an emerald cut (a rectangle with cut corners) but they have smaller facets designed to create sparkle, rather than the flashy step cuts of the emerald diamond. Asscher cuts also have a similar shape to emerald cut diamonds, a square shape with cut corners. Asscher cuts have step cuts like the emerald cut but they also feature a distinctive “X” pattern on the top of the diamond that creates very different light patterns.

    What To Look For When Buying an Emerald Diamond

    Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 4.22.03 PM

    Now that you know the definition of an emerald cut diamond, let’s talk about what you should look for when buying one. Like all other diamonds, looking at an emerald cut diamond’s 4Cs (clarity, cut, color, and carat) is important. But, due to the unique step cut of the emerald diamond, certain aspects of the 4Cs are more important when considering how they reflect on an emerald diamond’s beauty.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Clarity

    Clarity is incredibly important for emerald cut diamonds. While lower clarity can often be concealed by shimmering brilliant cuts, the step cut of an emerald diamond shows imperfections more easily. That makes it important to buy emerald diamonds with high clarity ratings. We’d recommend choosing emerald cuts with VVS1 clarity ratings or higher. The VVS1 rating means a diamonds inclusions (imperfections inside the diamond) cannot be seen by the naked eye. So, your emerald cut diamond will look perfectly clear as long as you choose a VVS1 diamond or better.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Cut

    The cut grading is a measurement of how well a diamond was cut. Something unique about the emerald cut is that it actually does not receive a cut grade when it is evaluated and certified. Instead, they are assigned polish and symmetry grades. So, when considering how well an emerald diamond was cut, know that excellent polish and symmetry grades mean that the diamond has better sparkle.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Color

    Color is one area where evaluating an emerald cut diamond is the same as with any other diamond. Like all white diamond shapes, the color grade of an emerald diamond is a measurement of how little color it has, with D colored diamonds being the most colorless. You don’t have to choose a D (or even an E or F) grade diamond to get a beautiful gemstone, however. How much or how little color you find beautiful is really a matter of personal preference, so go with what looks best to you when considering emerald cut diamond color.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Carat

    Diamond carat is a measurement of its weight. Carat is not a measurement of quality, it’s more a way to help you understand the size of the diamond you’re getting. Additionally the higher the carat, the more expensive the diamond will be. When shopping for an emerald cut diamond, consider your budget and quality desires, then see which carat weights would be best for you.

    Luckily, emerald cut diamonds look larger per carat than round diamonds, due to the large surface area on the top of the shape. So, you will be able to get a larger-looking diamond for the same carat when compared to round diamonds.

    Special Emerald Cut Consideration: Proportions

    With emerald cut diamonds, the 4Cs are an important way of determining quality. But there’s another factor to consider when it comes to a diamonds quality and style: an emerald cut diamond’s proportions. The ratio of an emerald diamond’s length, width, and depth affects both how it looks and how well it reflects light. Ratios between 1.45 and 1.55 are usually considered ideal, but which ratio you prefer is really up to you. Higher ratios create longer, slimmer diamonds, while shorter ratios create more square cuts. Take the proportion of the emerald cut diamond into consideration when shopping and decide which look you prefer.

    Emerald Cut Diamond Settings

    Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 4.23.38 PM

    Emerald cut diamonds can be put in a variety of engagement ring settings. The one you should choose depends on your personal style. Solitaire and halo settings tend to be the most popular choices, as they let the beauty of the emerald cut shine. Vintage style settings are also popular pairings, giving the emerald diamond a classic and romantic look.

    How To Pick Your Emerald Diamond Engagement Ring

    When deciding which emerald cut diamond is right for you, it’s really a matter of personal preference. All emerald cut diamonds have a sophisticated, glamorous look. When choosing yours, simply consider which factors are most important to you, then choose the diamond you love most.

  • What does your Bridal Ring say about you?!

    Engagement and bridal rings come in all shapes and sizes. Ever wonder what your ring might be saying about who you are as a person? An engagement ring can suggest a lot about your sense in fashion and wedding style. Here’s a glimpse of what your ring might be indicating about you.

    Diamond Cut

    Round Cut

    31-V571ERW-E_ANGLE

    The cut of a diamond refers to the center stone’s shape. The round shape is the most popular of cuts. With this cut ring, you’re probably leaning toward a more traditional wedding (you know, the one you’ve been dreaming about ever since you were a little girl). You’re also not much of a trend setter, but more of a vintage kind of gal.

    Emerald Cut

    31-V728GEW-E_TOP

    The emerald cut ring suggests you have a simplistic, yet elegant style. You take more of a minimal approach and have an interest in things that will outlast trends.

    Ring Setting

    Halo Setting

    mes749q_a

    The setting of a ring refers to how the center stone is positioned or held together. The halo is described as a very feminine setting, so we’re picturing a total girly-girl. And diamond are a girl’s best friend (how fitting)!

    Three-stone Setting

    31-V694EEW-E_ANGLE

    The more the merrier! With a three-stone ring, you’re truly a one-of-a-kind woman and a fan of eccentricity. You don’t mind waiting or looking for that special or unique item. You also appreciate the complexity behind things.

    Metal Type

    Rose Gold

    artcarved_31-v743errr-e_420x420_white_front

    The metal portion of a ring refers to the material makeup of the band. A rose gold band usually suggests you gravitate toward warmer tones. The pinkish hue of this color indicates that you’re a romantic.

    Yellow Gold

    31-V733ERY-E_FLAT

    Yellow gold is another warm tone, but with reining popularity. One who goes with a yellow gold ring can typically be described as fashionable and one who goes for more of a classic style.

    Color

    Gemstone

    ER6002W44SA

    Colored diamond rings are known for making bold statements. Gemstone rings, however, shows that you’re one with an appreciation of history and tradition. There’s generally a notable amount of meaning attached to a gemstone ring. Therefore, you’re more than likely very intuitive, as well.

    Colored Diamond

    31-V550HVA-E_ANGLE

    A colored engagement ring means you’re definitely not a fan of keeping things conventional. You don’t mind being the center of attention and you thrive off your creative side and independence. We’re picturing an exotic destination wedding in your near future.

Every February, millions of people rush out in droves to buy chocolate, flowers, and jewelry as they get ready to exchange gifts and spend time with their partners. Most people make an effort to make their loved one feel special on Valentine’s Day. While it is of course, wonderful to have that special day to celebrate your love, it’s important to remember that showing your partner how much you care should be something you do all year long.

    Making sure your partner feels loved and valued is key to keeping the spark in your relationship long term. So, how do you do this? Well, the most important thing to do is consider the things your partner seems to like. For example, have you noticed that they always seem to want more time with you? Or maybe they are elated when you have surprised them with a nice gift, like jewelry.  Figuring out what makes your partner feel loved is hugely helpful in a long term relationship. Here are the five different kinds of actions you can take to show your partner how special they are to you:

    Quality Time: If your partner always seems to want to spend more time with you, they might fall into the quality time category. For some people, spending time with their partner, whether it is at home or out in the world, is the most important thing. Spending time simply being together can get difficult when you have busy schedules. But it’s important to carve out this time for one another so consider scheduling it if necessary. Setting aside time to go out on dates or have nights in together can make a huge difference in your relationship.

    Physical Touch: Physical touch doesn’t necessarily have to be sensual touch, though that is certainly included in this category. Touch can be anything from hand holding, a back rub, or giving your partner a kiss on the cheek as you head out the door. If this is what makes your partner feel most loved, remind yourself to show them some kind of physical affection every day.

    Words of Affirmation: This one is essentially a fancier way of saying “compliment your partner.” This includes things like, “you look beautiful,” “thank you for helping me with that,” and “being around you makes me happy.” Some people simply want and need to hear you tell them your feelings.

    Receiving Gifts: Once you know that getting gifts is important to your partner, this is one of the easiest things to do. Some people love having a physical representation of love. If this is your partner, you can get them traditional gifts like jewelry and flowers, or give them personal gifts that show you have been thinking of them.

    Acts of Service:  “Acts of service” means lightening your partners load. Everyday things like doing laundry, taking out the trash, or running an errand can make a world of difference for some people. This is because it makes people feel thought of and helped. A simple act like doing the dishes can truly bring you closer to your partner, as it can show how much you care about them.

    Thinking about these five things can be a huge help to your relationship. Keep in mind that many people want a combination of these kinds of actions so you should consider doing things from every category. And, if you can’t tell what kind of things make your partner feel loved, there’s a simple solution: you should ask them. What makes your partner feel loved doesn’t have to be a mystery. Communication is the bedrock of every great relationship so make sure you understand how your partner is feeling. Then, you can take the time in your everyday life to make sure they know how much you care about them.
