Women’s Gift Amorosa Watch

This watch was given to me as a gift. My grandmother bought it at Zales shop, and it was pre-owned, 1st of all, they didn’t tell her it was pre-owned. I checked the ticket because the steel around the sphere was scratched. When we went back to the store to exchange it, she bought me a new one, I wore it right then, and at the end of that very same day (I wore it for like 2 hours), it already had two scratches! And all “physical action” I did was drive (if you can call that a “physical action”). I really do take good care of it, I wanted it to last years because it is a gift; now I don’t know if maybe it’d be better to return it! When I went to exchange it, I couldn’t exchange it for another model because I just fell in love with the Amorosa model, but what’s the point of having a beautiful watch if you know that in tops, 1 year, all of its stainless steel will be scratched and unshiny…

Ring is awesome, shipping was a drag….

14k White Gold Princess Cut Center w/ Round Side Stones RingI purchased this ring for my wife. The website stated that her size would be a 1-2 week wait for the ring to be sent out. That wait ended up being a 4 week wait. I will credit the shop for bumping up the 2 day shipping I requested to a Next day shipping for free and reimbursed my shipping expenses due to the added delay.

Now, about the ring. It’s exquisite. The princess cut diamond was near colorless, and it has an S1 rating which meant it is almost flawless under scope. For the price, the ring was a better quality gold (18k), and the diamond was much larger (1/3ct) than I could have purchased locally. I saved atleast $200-300 dollars alone from what I would have spent here. The settings are secure, and everything simply glimmers in the light.

Would I order this ring from fine jewellery shop again? Absolutely.

The ring came with an IGI certificate with appraisal information. I will have it appraised and certified locally of course, but that was an added bonus.

This beautiful ring is a romantic way to recognize an engagement, anniversary, or any other special occasion. The 14k white gold cathedral-style band is wide with shoulders that reach up to rest right below the diamond’s girdle. These two branches extend beyond the band’s diameter and each one holds three small round-cut diamonds in a channel setting. The gorgeous centerpiece princess-cut solitaire diamond is held securely in a 4-prong setting and has a 1/4 carat total weight. The entire band has a high polish finish and makes a regal statement when viewed from the side.

The center diamond has great brilliance and sparkle. Unlike the promotional quality offered by many retailers, which often have visible inclusions and opaque or yellow-brown color, this diamonds is near colorless, with a minimum color rating of I, and appears white to the eye. It has a clarity rating of at least I1, meaning there are small inclusions that are difficult to see with the unaided eye. Set in mountings, the diamond appears clean.

The cut, proportions, and symmetry of diamonds, characteristics which determine their brilliance, are fair to good. Most of the light that enters through the table, or top facet, of the diamond will reflect back out, creating the deep brightness, or brilliance, that gives diamonds their special appeal. The table percentage for these diamonds, meaning the width of the table compared to the diamond’s total width, is 53-90%, and the depth percentage, or total height of the diamond compared to its total width, is 57-85%. Optimal table and depth percentages maximize a diamond’s ability to reflect and refract light, but they also require a great deal of the diamond to be cut away, leaving less carat weight. While the table and depth percentages here span a broader range than those of higher quality diamonds, they still allow the diamond to handle the light well, and they have the advantage of providing the largest size of diamond for the value.

14k White Gold Princess-Cut Blue Topaz Station Necklace

Simple Sparkler
What a pretty little necklace. This necklace also comes in Peridot, which I will purchase as well. The stones are beautiful, they really sparkle. They are described as light blue, but they are more a light swiss blue and very vibrant. The chain is fine, but NOT superfine. There are 8 stones stationed set in this necklace. It gives off a lot of sparkle, all around every portion of the front and sides of your neck. It’s a lot of “look” for such a dainty, but strong necklace.

Eight princess-cut blue topaz stones are arranged along a gleaming white gold cable chain in this pretty station necklace. Held in simple four-prong settings and angled for a diamond shape, the sky blue topaz stones radiate with eye-catching color and combine beautifully with the icy cool tones of the white gold. Show off this pretty necklace with a scoop neckline or strapless dress. The 14 karat white gold chain measures 18 inches and fastens with a spring ring clasp.

Claddagh ring

I’ve been looking for a good sized Claddagh ring for some time now all over the internet and I’m so glad that I decided to go with this one! The ring is a good size, not too large for a woman, and the design is beautiful! I love it! It’s a fantastic ring, with a fantastic price!

I got this ring for my girlfriend as a birthday present, and she loved it. The only problem she had was deciding what finger to wear it on. I also really liked how the order came with a catalog and a business card for future orders.
There are many stories about the Claddagh ring. Claddagh itself refers to a small fishing village just near Galway city.

The Claddagh ring supposedly originated in this area. The ring has a design of a heart being encircled by a pair of delicate hands with a crown above the heart. In earlier times this design was the symbol of the “Fishing Kings of Claddagh” meaning ‘in love and friendship let us reign’. In the 17th century the symbol was first depicted on a ring which became the fashionable exchange of friends or lovers.The hands signify friendship, the crown loyalty, and the heart love. The ring has become popular outside Connamera since the middle of the last century- its spread being helped by the vast exodus from the West during the great Famine in 1847-49. These rings were kept as heirlooms with great pride and passed from mother to daughter. Today, the ring is worn extensively across Ireland, either on the right hand with the heart turned outwards showing that the wearer is “fancy free” or with the heart turned inwards to denote that he or she is “spoken for”. The pride of place is on the left hand, with the heart turned in, indicating that the wearer is happily married. 1/2″ long this ring is a size 6
