Gemstones used in jewelry, due to their high value, are usually small in size and weight. For example, a small round-cut diamond with a diameter of 2 mm weighs 0.006 grams, measured with a highly accurate scale.
You might wonder why this unit is used instead of another from the decimal metric system.
Pure gold is called "24 carats" and when a piece is said to be 18 carat gold, it means that in its composition there are 18 parts of pure gold and 6 parts of other metals. 18 out of 24 is the percentage of pure gold in the final alloy.
Weddings have changed a lot throughout history; in our culture, the role of the maid of honor didn't exist as such. We could say that her role was played by a younger sister or a family member who took care of carrying the bouquet of flowers.
Have you ever wondered how this tradition has made its way to us?
Wedding rings are the visible symbol of your love, they accompany you in the most special moments and remind you of unforgettable moments in your life.
When we make wedding rings, we do it with love, from design to the final finish, and we want you to enjoy them throughout your life.
Here are five small recommendations we give you:
Certainly, on some occasion, you've probably seen, without paying much attention, advertisements or posters for a wedding fair. We'll explain what you'll find if you go.
Our company exhibits at fairs, and it's a perfect opportunity to get to know us and see that there are plenty of possibilities for models of wedding rings, beyond the classics that everyone knows.
The wedding ring is the iconic symbol of love and commitment, whether it is worn on one hand or the other can vary according to cultural traditions and beliefs. Although this practice may seem superficial or simply a matter of aesthetics, there are several reasons why some people choose to wear the ring on one hand or the other.
We'll explore these deep and meaningful reasons: One of the most influential factors determining which hand the wedding ring is worn on is the culture and traditions of the region or religion from which the couple hails.
Trends in wedding ring collections are constantly evolving.
On one hand, there is a shift towards more delicate and narrow ring designs that can be worn alongside the engagement ring. And on the other hand, top "premium" brands are focused on new combinations of materials and colors.
In the 21st century, there are no societal rules that hold true. Women can propose to a man, just as it is more common for it to happen the other way around.
The Irish tradition established by Saint Patrick in the 5th century stated that women could propose marriage to men only on February 29th, that is, in leap years. But if Sandra Bullock proposed to Ryan Reynolds in 2009 in the movie "The Proposal," who will limit your ability to ask for his hand any day now?
Is it in the spring? Taking advantage of a special date for the couple? A holiday? During the day or night of New Year's Eve??
Those of us who believe in love know that it is present 365 days a year, whether being caressed by it on a warm summer night, taking a walk through the forest enjoying the beautiful colors of autumn, lying on a couch under a blanket on a winter day, or witnessing the explosion of flowers in spring.
Such a decision needs to be pondered upon and reached the conviction that it is a good time to do so. If you pay attention, you will see that there are a series of signs to know if the time has come.
There comes a point in a couple's relationship where love is thriving, and one of the two, most often the man but not always, decides to ask their partner's hand in marriage to take a step forward and formalize their relationship.
Surely you have seen it in many movies, and you may have even encountered this "spectacle" on the street. One member of the couple kneels down and offers a ring to the other. It is the most common way of proposing marriage.
Let's explore its possible origins: There is no agreement on the origins of this gesture, as there are no historical records of the beginning of this tradition. However, there are some theories that can explain it.
