Which Metal Gets the Medal?

by Jenny Bryde 12. July 2015 16:27

Walking into a jeweler's recently, I noticed that there seemed to be a lot more choices when it came to picking out the material of wedding bands, namely the metal.  We are no longer limited to only golds, which are great, don't get me wrong.  But maybe gold isn't a great option for a person who is very hard on their jewelry due to a job or hobbies or lifestyle.  There are a number of options available, and they vary widely when it comes to physical properties, price, and aesthetics.  Let's take a closer look.

A great place to start is this chart published by Fred Meyer Jewelers.  It breaks down all the most commonly found metals in jewelry and gives you a snapshot of their traits.  Click here to go directly to their page where they provide even more detailed information about each metal.  

 

 

Here is another graphic I found giving a visual for the hardnesses for each metal.  

 

So think about your hands.  Think about your budget, lifestyle, and personal taste.  I hope the info in this article helps you to make the best choice!

Engagement Ring Trends 2015

by Jenny Bryde 7. June 2015 16:50

What in the world is going on on our left ring fingers?  The classic solitaire reigns as the go-to favorite of the ring shoppers of the world, but in 2015, ring selection has become a little more varied and a lot more fun!  Check out some of these fun ring trends of 2015.  

How about these wildly fun bands?  Nothing boring here.  Stackable or individually worn, they are all very stylish.

Who says you have to party solo?  In this setting, a larger diamond is surrounded by other smaller stones.

A stone for every color.  Don't be afraid to experiment with colors outside of the norms!

Diamonds that go all the way around!  Love it!

I saved my favorite ring find for last but not least.  This beautiful yellow stone-studded ring is such a lovely spin on an old favorite design.  Beautiful!
