Biggest Britain Jewel Robbery News : A Million Pound Offered

Wow, the biggest jewelry robbery news! Anybody who has clue on this case will be paid million of dollars..., not dollar exactly, pound! This news came from guardian, read this :

A £1m reward is being offered for information leading to the capture of thieves who pulled off the £40m Graff Diamonds heist, the Metropolitan police said yesterday.

For sheer audacity and criminal cunning, the execution of the robbery was as flawless as the gems the two suited armed robbers scooped from a cabinet in Britain's biggest jewellery raid.

Their identities, hidden behind latex masks, the hostage-taking, the "warning" shots, the chain of getaway vehicles, the stunning swiftness – all seemingly went to plan, a plan undoubtedly hatched months before.

No doubt too that the 43 dazzling necklaces, earrings and bracelets are already out of the country. As diamond dealers across the globe are placed on alert, experts believe they could be headed to east Asia, particularly China.

Wedding Ring : Sterling Silver

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. It’s important to put careful thought into every aspect of your special day.

One of the issues that both the bride and groom will want to consult on is what type and design of rings complement them both. Although gold has been the standard choice there’s a renewed interest in sterling silver wedding rings in recent years.

Sterling silver wedding rings are a more economical choice than gold but their aesthetic value is at the same level as both gold and platinum. Many jewelers are recognizing that some couples have a deep interest in sterling silver wedding rings and they are designing new sets all the time.

Many couples dream of designing their own rings and with sterling silver wedding rings that dream is very attainable. Many jewelers have design experts on site that will sit down with the happy couple and draw out a design of their dream rings.

Every detail including the size and quality of the stones are discussed. The jewelry designer will craft an image of what the sterling silver wedding rings will look like upon completion. This way the couple has a clear view of what they will be receiving. It’s also a lovely way for the couple to have something unique for their wedding day.

If you aren’t interested in having someone design your rings for you there are many sterling silver wedding rings already available for purchase. One of the most popular designs are those in a weave pattern.

In these types of sterling silver wedding rings, each band has a matching design of woven silver. The design can be somewhat simple or very intricate. The reason these types of sterling silver wedding rings are so desirable is that some couples prefer a band that isn’t solid. They want something that has a flow to it and can be captivating even without a diamond. Sterling silver wedding rings with this type of woven design are eye catching.

If you do prefer the more traditional wedding band than you can also find that in sterling silver wedding rings. There are very plain and simple rings available that complement both the hand of the groom and the bride.

The bride might also wear a solitaire along with her band to complete her set. The man will generally just wear a band that matches his wife’s.

Sterling silver wedding rings are perfect for couples who want something different and affordable. They are a true reflection of the love that is shared between the two people wearing them.

Wedding Ring : Jessica Simpson

A 8 carat pear cut diamond ring, with 2 smaller diamonds by the sides. Unfortunately, Simpson divorced Nick Lachey soon after. Nonetheless, she decided to continue wearing her wedding ring as a pendant round her neck, along with a cross her parents gave her and a cross worn also by her mom and sister. A combination of personal pieces with much sentimental value.

Must to Consider Before Buying Wedding Ring

1. Consider your style. Are you classic, artistic, sporty or modern? Going against your personal grain when selecting a ring might make you regret your choice down the road. You’ll also want to be sure that your wedding band matches the style of your engagement ring. If your engagement ring is modern, look for channel-set or bezel-set wedding bands, possibly with a matte finish. If you have a vintage or antique-style ring, milgrain detailing and bead-set or pavĂ© diamond accents will be beautiful stylistic complements.

2. Consider matched sets. For a truly unified visual impact, a wedding band that perfectly matches the style of your engagement ring can’t be beat. Brilliant Earth offers a variety of matched sets. View our engagement settings and accompanying wedding bands for numerous different style options.

3. Consider relevant cultural or family traditions that might influence your wedding band selections. More ornate designs accented by milgrain or engraved details are a staple in some cultures while plain metal bands are the norm in others. In some traditions, the new bride even receives two wedding bands - score!

4. Consider starting your own meaningful tradition. Have your family members recycle jewelry that they no longer wear toward your wedding bands. Your rings will be not only eco-friendly, but will also be a symbol and constant reminder of your loved ones. Contact a Brilliant Earth representative to learn more about assisting guests with recycling their old jewelry for a credit toward your wedding band purchase.

5. Consider keeping metals consistent. If you will be wearing your engagement ring and wedding band on the same finger, it’s important that they be made of the same metal. Platinum, gold and palladium all behave differently over time. Also, more durable metals may cause less durable metals to scratch and wear more quickly.

6. Consider stacking rings and wider bands. If a classic engagement ring isn’t your style, think about wearing multiple bands or one larger stand alone band. Multiple bands can each symbolize different milestones in your lives - engagement, wedding, honeymoon, kids - and can be mixed and matched for varying stylish effects. Selecting a single wider band is another stylish look for those who prefer something a little different from the traditional engagement ring and wedding band combination.

7. Consider engravings. While choosing a beautiful ring for the world to see is important, inscribing it with a deeply personal message makes it a truly enduring symbol of your love. Personal vows, short quotations, or simply the date of your wedding engraved inside your bands will be a private gesture of love and commitment for years to come.

8. Consider whether or not to solder your engagement ring and wedding band together. While it may seem convenient to have the feeling of just one ring on your finger instead of two, once they are fused you will not be able to wear them separately. It may also be worth considering whether or not you will want two rings to pass down to future generations.

9. Consider the durability of your gems. Diamonds and sapphires are the two most popular choices for wedding and engagement rings because they are as durable as they are beautiful. Some precious stones, such as peridot and opal, do not hold up well to wear and tear, and may not be the wisest choice for an item of jewelry designed to last a lifetime and beyond.

10. Consider your budget and your financial future together. When confronted with the many beautiful choices of wedding rings, you might be tempted to exceed your budget. We recommend that you set your budget and stick to it! You’ll want to begin your life together on the right financial foot. Plus, you can also look forward to milestones and special anniversaries for further jewelry purchases down the road.

10 Ways to Save on Buying a Wedding Ring

It’s tough times out there, but you don’t need to sacrifice your ethics in order to save on your engagement and wedding rings. Here are some tips from our jewelry specialists on how to save a bit of green when shopping green.

1. Opt for one special ring in place of both an engagement ring and wedding band. Look for rings with ornate patterns, unique details, conflict free diamond accents, or a more substantial width to serve as your all-in-one symbol of love and commitment.

2. Instead of giving an engagement ring with a larger center stone, give her multiple bands - each with its own meaning - that she can stack. One for the engagement, one for the wedding, another to symbolize your families coming together….The possibilities are endless!

3. Purchase your wedding bands before purchasing the engagement ring. This way you will both have a ring to wear as a symbol of your love for one another. You will have plenty of time together to design that perfect conflict free diamond ring down the road.

4. While platinum is a beautiful choice, you may want to consider the less expensive 18K while gold option, or even alternative precious metals, such as palladium. Palladium is a naturally white precious metal from the platinum family, but costs less than both platinum and gold. All of Brilliant Earth’s rings are also available in recycled palladium- contact us for more information.

5. Select classic, recycled metal wedding bands. They are simple, understated and elegant, and are reminiscent of many of our parents’ traditions. They are also a beautiful, classic accompaniment to any diamond engagement ring.

6. Select an ethical origin sapphire center gem for your engagement ring, which is more affordable than most diamond options. Precious sapphires have been revered all over the world for centuries. They are very durable, and are therefore an excellent choice for engagement and wedding rings. Deep-blue sapphires are most well-known, but they also come in many other colors, including pink, orange, green, yellow and purple.

7. Select recycled metal rings that gleam with light-catching details, such as milgrain and engraving. These brilliant features will make your ring sparkle without the additional cost of diamond accents.

8. Take advantage of upgrade policies! You’ll want to start your life together in a strong financial position, so be realistic about what you can truly afford. Down the road you will be able to upgrade to a larger conflict free diamond - which will be an especially romantic gesture of your growing love.

9. Recycle your gold and platinum jewelry that you no longer wear for a credit towards any Brilliant Earth purchase. By selecting jewelry made of recycled metals, you will help to decrease the global demand for newly mined metals. Contact a Brilliant Earth customer service representative if you are interested in sending us your jewelry for recycled metal credit.

10. Shop online! You won’t be paying the retail store overhead for bright lights and glass display cases. Brilliant Earth will even ship your rings to you with free fully insured next day shipping.

Why the Price of Platinum Jewelry is Expensive?

Why is Platinum Much More Expensive Than Gold?

Platinum is a hypoallergenic virtually pure precious metal. Jewelry stores who sell high quality platinum offer 950 Grade (95% pure platinum) jewelry. Anything less should not be considered either pure or hypoallergenic or of substantive quality.

This means that 95% of the content of a piece of platinum jewelry is pure platinum and 5% is another platinum group alloy such as palladium, ruthenium, or iridium. Most of these alloys are excellent choices to mix with platinum jewelry, but palladium and ruthenium should be considered top choices.

In addition, unlike white gold, platinum does not require rhodium plating for maintenance.

Platinum Purity Compared to Gold

Platinum is 30 times rarer than gold!

Compared to 14k gold (which is only 58% pure gold or 14 of 24 parts gold) or 18k gold (75% pure gold or 18 of 24 parts gold), platinum can cost significantly more due to its purity and value as a rare precious commodity.

Since platinum is a purer and denser metal than gold, it will weigh more than gold (about 60% heavier).

For example, the same wedding band weighing 10.0 grams in gold will weigh 16.0 grams in platinum.

Since the amount of a precious metal (or the gram weight) is a significant factor in determining prices, platinum tends to be more costly than gold, but well worth the difference in price if it meets your budget.

Manufacturing and Labor Costs

Platinum is also more expensive than gold due to the fact that it is slightly more difficult to work with and less platinum jewelry is produced than gold jewelry, thereby effecting the manufacturing and labor costs of platinum vs. gold.

Overall, you can expect to normally pay 3-4 times more for platinum than for gold. Although with platinum prices historically lower than average, you may be able to find platinum jewelry costing closer to 2.5 – 3 times more than gold currently. Still a premium, but a bargain today regardless.

Market Price of Platinum

Platinum is a voraciously volatile precious metal whose base price is directly connected to the metal’s market price. As of today, platinum hovers at $965.00 per ounce (a historically low price that will probably change by the time I finish writing this).

platinum-crossIn figuring out the base price of a piece of platinum jewelry, a rudimentary formula is used to determine the value (exclusive of labor, manufacturing costs, as well as wholesale and retail markup).

Platinum Formula for 950 Grade Platinum Jewelry

Market price of platinum per ounce + 18 / 31.1 = Price of Platinum Per Gram

Taking today’s price of platinum of $965.00 per ounce, this yields:

965 + 18 / 31.1 = $31.60 per gram

(Why +18 and divide by 31.1? 18 is the amount of estimated loss of platinum when the metal is refined into jewelry, and 31.1 is the number of grams per ounce).

Keep in mind that rarely should platinum jewelry’s value or price be determined solely on gram weight alone–there are many factors including design and labor, limited production of a specific piece, whether the item is handmade or mass produced, and many other factors. But this formula will give you an idea of the base price of your platinum jewelry.

For example, a ring weighing 20.0 grams of platinum may cost $1,425.00. If you divide 1,425 / 20 — you will get $71.25 per gram. That is the amount you are paying per 1 gram of platinum in your ring (inclusive of labor, retail markup, etc.).

platinum-paisley-bandApples of Gold has recently reduced the prices on all of its platinum wedding bands–in response to platinum’s current market valuation. Now is the time to buy platinum, before platinum prices skyrocket as they have in times past. (Platinum used to be valued at $2,300+ per ounce just 11 months ago!) It will probably return to such levels again.

The jewelry has not changed–but the market’s valuation of the metal has–for now.
