Published

on

Getting engaged is one of the most special and memorable moments in life. And the perfect ring is the cherry on top!

However, with so many styles and designs out there, it can be hard to know what you should choose. The old rules have gone out the window – today, it’s all about the individual and the engagement ring that reflects their style, taste, and values. There is also a sparkler out there for every budget. So if you’re planning to propose or need to give your other half some ideas on what to buy. Keep reading our article for amazing engagement ring tips.

 

Finding Out The Style Of Ring

An engagement ring is intended to be worn everyday for life. It should make the wearer’s heart sing. That said, it’s time to put your own tastes aside and find out what style she prefers. The easiest way is to ask her, but if you want to protect the element of surprise there are other ways of finding out. Observe! What style jewelry does she wear most often? What color metal?. Go shopping for jewelry together. Pay attention to what draws her to a particular piece of jewelry. Her style might be classic if she has a refined look and loves to surround herself with things that have an old-world elegance.

 

Picking The Matching Metal For The Band

The type of metal you pick for an engagement ring band affects the overall look of the piece. White gold and platinum have been popular for a number of years, and both make for a sleek, modern look. They are also good choices for diamonds graded in the colorless to near-colorless ranges to color scale. Setting one of these diamonds in yellow prongs would cause the diamond to look more yellowish in appearance. If you love the color of gold, consider that white metal prongs or bezels are often integrated into yellow gold bands to create contrast with the diamond. Rose gold is trending, has a warm and soothing appearance.

 

Choose The Setting Of The Stone

In an engagement ring, a diamond is held in place by a setting. The setting has two jobs: to highlight the beauty of the diamond, and to protect it from damage. Different settings offer different degrees of protection. When prongs are used to secure a single stone, the ring is often called a solitaire. In a bezel setting, the thin metal strip is pushed or hammered around the gem to hold it in place. Tiny diamonds encircle the center stone in a halo type of setting. A halo will definitely add more sparkle to an engagement ring and make the center stone look larger.

 

Pick Some Side Stones To Enhance It

Engagement

Side stones are a dazzling way to dress up an engagement ring. They bring a dash of elegance, creating a look that’s simply sophisticated. Popular choices include channel or pavé set diamonds along the shank of the ring, diamond baguettes on either side of the center stone, and colored gems in any number of configurations. If you want diamond side stones that complement the center stone, choose ones that grade close to the center diamond in color, clarity and (if round brilliants) cut. Choosing side rings will enhance the beauty of the ring.

 

Customize The Piece

Engagement

Custom feels more special than just walking into a store and picking something. Generally speaking, a lot of people now want something that walks the line between vintage and modern. It’s not so much about a big diamond anymore they want quality oversize, or a unique shape, like a rose cut. And a lot of people are ditching diamonds altogether. Whether it’s a proposal, exchanging vows, giving a gift, or commemorating something special, try to make a personal statement that will surely make the day memorable and cherished forever.

 

Get The Size Measured Correctly

Engagement

This may seem obvious, but make sure you get the ring finger properly measured. You don’t want a ring that’s cutting off your circulation or even worse so loose it’s at risk of falling off. It should feel snug but comfortable. If you’re not shopping for engagement rings together, you can go get sized at a jewelry store on your own and then casually mention your size the next time the topic comes up. Another idea is to wait till she’s out of the room and then borrows a ring she owns and trace the inner circle on a piece of paper, or press the ring into a bar of soap and make an impression.

 

Always Buy Certified Diamonds

Engagement

Buying an engagement ring is one of life’s most expensive purchases, so take your time to shop smartly. When you finally find the dream ring, make sure you are buying a certified stone from an accredited laboratory such as the Gem Society or the Gemological Institute. Diamonds certified by the other labs can have inflated grades, giving the customer the illusion of getting a great deal, when in reality they’ve only gotten a lower quality diamond. In fact, this is the biggest trick jewelry stores play.

The Existential Crisis Of Fashion Industry

Published

on

The words Covid and crisis are going hand in hand since the past few days. Similarly, the situation has brought an Existential Crisis to Fashion Industry. Read the how and what about it in this post.

The Existential Crisis Of Fashion Industry

What is an Existential Crisis?

It is a phase when an individual questions the purpose, meaning and values of their life. In this case, it is the whole of fashion industry who is facing this crisis. It is not necessarily a negative phase. However, it comes close to depressive disorders and conditions.

Why is there an Existential Crisis In Fashion Industry?

In the pandemic and post pandemic era, a lot of things are being questioned and believes are in process of refining themselves. The essential industries are in demand at the moment and things like fashion are not really the concern right now. Therefore, the priorities of people are changing.

More and more people who are providers of fashion are having a similar complaint. For example, No one wants to buy new clothes or be up to date on the fashion trends while they are locked in their homes. In addition, other major changes in the fashion industry are that the productions have stopped, the shops are not opening, there are no buyers even if you are willing to provide. The overall demand of fashion gone down. 

In conclusion, all of this has brought an existential crisis to the fashion industry.

In addition, talking particularly about India, people here are obsessed with the quality and durability of fabrics. This of course, cannot be known without touching and feeling the fabric. So, there is little substitute for the physical buying and shopping.

Being in Style

All fashion lovers will agree that there are somethings that will never go out of fashion. However, in this industry, most things are those which go out of fashion. There is a specific time for each fashion trend. Just like people don’t go shopping for sweaters and shawls in winter, people may not buy the existing fashion produced after the lockdown is open.

The returns

Rather than gaining nothing, retailers are putting the existing stocks on sale at heavy discounts. Though there are some gains, the losses are a lot more. Therefore, the returns that people are getting against fashion products are too little.

Change in Choices

There is a change in the kinds of apparels that buyers now prefer to have. Purchases in the lounge wear section have increased a lot. On contrary, those mass produced due to high demands are left in the warehouses. Since the sales have gone down and there is a lock- down, brands have reduced advertising or completely stopped it. Therefore, there is a crisis for advertisers as well.

Newer Ways of Promotion

The industry and its stakeholders are coming up with new ways to keep the consumers engages. For instance, check out The Best Of Met Gala Challenge.

In this way, stakeholders are making sure that though fashion consumption has gone down the craze of fashion remains intact.

New Accommodations

The industry to keep its existence intact is accommodating newer things. For instance, coming up with new ideas of sustainable fashion. In addition, most brands are getting in production of masks and safety essentials that are currently the need of the hour.
