postheadericon You Need To Know About Gold Jewelry for Beginners

fashion gold jewelryMany of us have found some form of gold jewelry, so we know even a little about them. It’s an interesting thing, and probably one of the most popular types of jewelry. There are different types of gold jewelry and if you are a beginner, then I suggest you continue to learn so that you are well informed before you make your first or next purchase.

First, there are different types of gold. Many people are familiar with the usual yellow colour jewelry, but there is also less popular with white gold and rose gold are even less common. Gold colour beyond the three I just described but is much less common and many people do not even know about them. The first thing to note about the colour that is different is that you do not have to judge the value of gold or rust colour. The colour does not in any way indicate the amount of gold in it. A rust shows the amount of gold present in every piece of jewelry but the colour results of alloys that make up the rest of the gems.

Red and white gold also reached based on the same principle, while the alloy involved affects the display. Gold itself is not strong enough to be used by itself, and that is why 24-carat gold, which comprises approximately 99.9% of the gold is not the strongest you will find. It is much more expensive than say a 18-carat gold but much less durable, and that is the reason why other metals added to provide strength and durability of gold. Another reason why other metals are added to gold to affect the colour.

Another gold plated jewelry is a common but a cheap alternative to pure gold, in this case the metal electrolytically. Full of gold pieces tend to be the better choice, because there is a thick layer of real gold on the outside. Gold plated layer may involve a very delicate layer of gold, which often goes away over time. They fade with time and are not durable.

Another important feature of the hardness of gold, though you will not notice the difference, gold varies in hardness depending on the amount of gold present and also alloys are present, this is not very important but it is just something to know, it will not affect the characteristics of your gold.

Gold jewelry is a popular addition to any jewelry box, whether it is found in an elegant necklace chain or vintage diamond ring. If you are in the market for gold jewelry, there are a few things you need to know about gold so that you can get a piece of good quality for the price. Check the basics you need to know about the hidden gold in your jewelry box.

postheadericon Jewelry Online Shopping is no Longer Scary Hobby

Depending on your perception, there are both advantages and disadvantages of shopping for jewellery online. If you had asked people a few years ago if they were willing to buy their jewellery on the internet, a lot of them would have told you no. However, just like with everything else, things change over time. And when it comes to online shopping, many people are slowly starting to warm up to the idea.

Is it because they feel more comfortable with making purchases online or is it because this kind of shopping experience is starting to become the norm? Quite frankly, it could be due to a combination of the two. As more people shop online, they see that it is not such a bad thing. The bogeyman is not standing on every corner of the internet waiting to steal your money. Yes, you have to be careful about the types of websites that you purchase your jewellery from. Unfortunately, this has to be done if you want to successfully shop on the internet.

However, all of the fears that were once in place years ago are starting to fall along the wayside for many people. The fear that is associated with Jewelry Online Shopping is just like any other anxiety that you might have in life. Once you do it a couple of times, it no longer overwhelms you.

Why is there such a difference in attitude when it comes to jewellery shopping on the internet? It could be because a lot of people are starting to see how beneficial it is to shop online. The following are just a few reasons why online jewellery shopping is gaining in popularity.

First, shopping online for an engagement ring is very convenient. It is just a matter of going to a website looking at the various rings and picking the one that you like. You don’t have to walk though a mall that is the length of three or four football fields just to find a ring. You can shop in the comfort of your home and find a diamond ring that your girlfriend will love.

Second, there is a large selection of diamond rings to choose from. This is not the same when it comes to the average brick and mortar store. When shopping online the selection is almost endless. If you do not see what you want at one website, then move on to the next one.

Third, prices for jewellery are normally much cheaper when shopping online. This is because online stores do not have to worry about the normal expenses that are required for regular brick and mortar stores. These savings are passed down to you.

In conclusion, jewelry online shopping is just as safe and rewarding as shopping at your local mall. Once you make a few purchases and nothing goes wrong, this just solidifies your belief that online shopping is safe. You will probably start out with smaller purchases and move on up to the larger purchases such as jewellery. But, the same person who was squeamish about purchasing a $10 audio book a few years ago will not have the same problem when shopping for $3,000 engagement rings today, which is a good thing.

postheadericon Buying Jewellery As A Gift – Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend

We all know diamond rings are a girls best friend so what better way to show your love (and get into her good books) than by buying your lady that special piece of jewellery.

So how do I choose something that she will adore and get me into her good books?
Sometimes even the simplest of decisions can often become the most difficult ones to make. Like choosing that special piece of jewellery for that very special someone in your life.

Allow me to take some of the pressure off you and take some advice from a man who knows. (25 years marriage to the same woman and still counting!)

For women it’s often the case that they want something unique, extraordinary, a piece that they know won’t be at a party worn by a friend.
As a woman they want to feel special and that they are worth the effort, that you know their hearts and minds and by giving them that unique piece of jewellery that everyone else loves and only they have. Trust me the choice you make in your ladies present will say so much to her and of course you want to say all the right things with this amazing gift.

It could be a stunning solitaire diamond ring, an exquisite sapphire and diamond necklace with matching bracelet. A bespoke piece may well be the answer. Whatever your choice it simply has to say my darling I love you and appreciate you.

A beautiful piece of jewellery will make your loved one understand exactly how important you think they are and will tell your special someone just how much you love them.

The time and effort taken to choose the jewellery is nothing compared to the appreciation you will receive because she will simply adore it and fall in love with that gift time and time again, happy in the knowledge that every other woman will want it and only your lady has it.

So how do you make sure you choose the right piece of jewellery?

Chances are if you pay attention to anything she has to say then she has probably already told you! Listen to you loved one, women in my experience have this annoying habit of ‘hinting’ (nagging) at men until they succumb to the inevitable and take the hint! However men have an inbuilt defense mechanism which enables the m to turn the volume down on a woman’s nagging whilst they are still able to nod and grunt convincingly to give the appearance of paying attention! Well trust me guys occasionally it is quicker and less painful in the long run just to pin those ears back and listen to you gal as she will get her own way eventually anyway – listen to what she has to say and buy her what she wants!

Another tactic I use when figuring out what jewellery to buy is ask her mum, a good relationship with your mother in law can pay dividends. Obviously it is always better to build such relationships with in laws ‘long distance’ but never the less still a useful tactic!

Another often underrated tactic is to have a look in her jewellery box! What is in there that she never wears? Guess what don’t buy anything like that again!! Stick to what she is wearing and get her something similar or complimentary.

If none of these methods work then how about this one, ask her what she wants!

I have always found that saying it with jewellery is far more rewarding than saying it with flowers! Your lady would much rather have a nice Diamond Ring than a bunch of flowers that will be in the bin in about a week.
After 25 years of happy marriage I believe that spending my hard earned cash on my special lady with a nice piece of jewellery is the way to go for anniversaries, birthdays etc.
