Diamond Shopping-Where do I Even Begin?

What goes hand in hand with weddings and engagements? Jewelry. The very act of giving jewelry from one to another is almost as timeless as love itself. It’s not just the gesture of giving a ring but it’s what the ring represents-you’re undying affection and care for your soul mate, right? Obviously the importance of the ring you choose cannot be underestimated. But where do you even start? What do you look for in a diamond?

Diamonds Are For Everyone

LONDON—London’s streets are no longer paved with gold, they’re paved with diamonds.

Fuelled in part by style icons like footballer David Beckham or hip-hopper Missy Elliot, as likely to wear sparklers with sports gear and jeans as they are at awards ceremonies, the increasing popularity of diamonds has turned them from a "nice-to-have" into a "must-have."

Over the last year or two, London’s retail jewelry market has come to reflect this trend—notably with the arrival of new diamond specialists like Wint and Kidd and DeBeers.

The Bracelet" a world war II story!

Early on the morning of Sept. 16, 1944, a B-17 bomber left an airfield in Iceland, climbing into zero-visibility conditions in an attempt to escape the grip of notoriously vicious weather and unforgiving terrain.

The bomber was not alone; that morning more than 100 Flying Fortresses left Meeks Field at Keflavik en route to join thousands of others that had been ferried from the United States to the flak-filled skies over Europe at the height of World War II.

The Metals of Jewelry Making

The three basic metals of jewelry making are identified primarily by color. Silver, of course, is known for its shiny "silver" hue when used in its polished state, but also is gaining popularity in a duller matte finish or a combination of the polished and matte. When you are purchasing sterling silver look for the stamp of "925" which indicates the item has a silver content of almost 93 percent silver. The seven percent alloy gives the silver hardness and durability. Without the alloy, the silver piece would be too soft to wear.

Beloved...Bejeweled...Be Careful! What to Know Before You Buy Jewelry

Planning a gift of jewelry? Whether it's for sweetheart or yourself, build in time to compare prices and quality. A gift of jewelry can be expensive. If you're not familiar with any jewelers in your area, ask family members, friends or co-workers for recommendations. Also, when ordering online and you've never heard of the seller, check on its reputation with the Better Business Bureau or the state attorney general's office. When you're shopping, ask your salesperson to write down any information you might rely on to make your purchase. And before you buy, ask for the store's refund and return policy. When ordering online, keep printouts of the web pages with details about the transaction, including refund and return policies if you're not satisfied.

Nineteenth-century Navajo and Pueblo silver jewelry

Anthropologists and others have frequently expressed more interest in Navajo and Pueblo pottery, weaving, and even basketry than jewelry. Commentary usually focuses on the skill of the Indian silversmiths, armed only with rough tools and improvised forges [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED]. In the early 1880s Washington Matthews, a surgeon in the United States Army, reported to the recently created Bureau of American Ethnology that "the appliances and processes of the smith are much the same among the Navajo as among the Pueblo Indians." But he found the Navajo silversmiths "quite fertile in design."
