Throwback Thursday: Does Carat Size Matter?

It’s that time of the week again; Throwback Thursday. This week we are throwing back to an “education” blog. We know an engagement ring is a huge investment; an investment that you will wear every day for the rest of your life. We at A. JAFFE want to do our best and make sure you are more than comfortable with your ring/diamond purchase. “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” – Leo Robin Does size really matter? That is the question many people ask themselves when starting to shop for engagement rings. Of course every girl wants a rock of her very own, but what really matters is the sparkle and brilliance that the stone delivers. The value of a diamond is determined based on several factors. These factors are referred to as the 4 C’s: color, clarity, cut and carat. The combination of all four factors determines the value of the diamond, not just the carat weight. Color: Refers to the white appearance of the diamond. Diamonds with a whiter appearance have the look of a hi

Fashion Friday: Spotlight on Nina Garcia

“My advice to people who want to get into fashion is this: Get into fashion, follow your dreams. If you really are very passionate about it, you’re going to find a way to do it. Meet and network with as many people as you can, make phone calls, knock on doors, don’t give up. Do the internships, be informed, learn as much as you can about what you’re passionate about. Look around you, because fashion is influenced by so many other things — art, movies, literature. Especially for people who want to be designers — be informed, soak it all in, go to museums, and again, be an intern, network, and don’t give up. You have to be very tenacious to make it in this industry.” –Nina Garcia What is fashion? Nowadays anything new and fresh created becomes a trend and we call it fashion. Popular to contrary belief trends influence our day-to-day lives. Wearing the latest and getting things in style is key to being considered fashionable. Fashion can be seen not just in clothing but

Femininity with a touch of Edginess

“It is beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.” – Oscar Wilde As people evolve, our society constantly changes and it’s a necessity to cultivate fresh inspirations to usher in the next level of self expression.

How do you know if she is the one?

We typically assume that marriage is the last stop on the male brain train. I mean, is any man truly ‘on board’ this ride; and if so at what point does he realize she’s the One? Just as women have created their list of standards for, not only dating the right guy, but also recognizing when they have found their prince charming, do our better halves share this tactical trait or live by a ‘go-with-the-flow’ code? As a woman who has been blessed with an entire brood of males in my very own immediate family, I can vouch for the major points we know to be true when recognizing THE ONE. 1. She gets along with your friends – it’s tough to find a woman who not only accepts your quirkiness, but also, embraces the package deal that is your bromance. If she can handle her own among your circle of friends, she’s a keeper! She gets along with your friends 2. You trust her completely – Its 3am and you haven’t heard back from her last text that she was meeting up with her hometow

What Your Favorite Ice Cream Flavor Says About Your Wedding Style

“My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it’s on your plate.” Thornton Wilder “I will skip the giant scoop of vanilla ice cream covered in thick, gooey, warm chocolate fudge,” said no one ever. Everyone loves ice cream. In fact, it’s one of the most popular desserts in the whole world. It’s that kind of treat which can be enjoyed year round. After indulging on a hot fudge sundae or a double scoop of your two favorite flavors (of course you can’t decide on just one), you can’t help but wonder what your favorite ice cream flavor has to say about your wedding style. Check out our “Ice Cream Flavor Wedding Maker” to see what your favorite flavor has to say about your wedding theme. Butter Pecan Vintage: You are a little old fashioned and a little conservative.

The Great Gatsby

“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.” F. Scott Fitzgerald In honor of The Great Gatsby winning, Best Costume Design last night at the Oscars, we decided to repost our original blog that paid tribute to the classic story. The Great Gatsby may actually be one of the most popular classics in modern American fiction. Since its conception in 1925, Fitzgerald’s masterpiece has become a timeless classic for generations to come. The story of Jay Gatsby’s desperate quest to win back his first love depicts the temptations of wealth, importance of honesty, and the struggle to escape the past. Through Gatsby’s power to transform his dreams into reality—is what makes him “great”! During the era of the Great Gatsby around the 1920’s fashion was very meaningful. It ex
