Engagement Ring Shopping – Don’t Go It Alone

A few words of advice from Ryan Krasner, Third Generation Jeweler - There are a couple of trends I have noticed with shoppers as of recent, and in particular, customers shopping for engagement rings. Something you may not immediately consider as an obvious thing to do, but is quite common these days, is coming in to shop as a couple. You may feel nervous about the idea of it or think it will be awkward, but I am here to tell you that you shouldn’t. Why not? Because it is the most informative process in terms of figuring out what your partner likes and it gives you the advantage of learning all of the intricacies and information regarding fine jewelry in terms of trends, manufacturing techniques, stone setting techniques, and other current information.

Vintage Engagement Rings On The Rise

Everything old is new again. Antique and Art Deco inspired engagement rings are rising in popularity with our brides to be, and today I wanted to share with you some of the reasons why antique engagement rings are becoming so popular and to educate you in the nuances and subtleties of their value. These engagement rings tend to capture the imagination of modern brides with their old world styling, attention to detail and beautifully cut diamonds. Each of these heirloom style pieces have their own unique history, stories to tell, and unique design elements. Antique engagements rings remind us of simpler times, before automation and computers when a diamond cutter was commissioned specifically to cut a particular diamond. Each of the stones were hand selected and methodically cut to highlight the unique sparkle of the diamond, their dedication to their craft is evident simply by looking at the beautiful designs. Every cleave of the diamond cutter’s hammer tells a unique story, not sim
