Is it the time now to give things an upgrade between you two? Are you planning now to put a ring on it? If you think this is the right time now, well, congratulations! While you are planning on how to ask her to marry her, you might take a hitch first on what kind of ring would you give to her.
As one of the most important events that you may have in your life, you must make your marriage proposal to be the most extravagant one. But extravagance isn’t equals to expensive, so you don’t really have to spend a lot of money, saving money is always an option.
So how are you going to make that big break an extravagant one without spending much for the ring? Read down below to know more ninja tricks in choosing a ring.
- Sparkly, shimmering and doesn’t tarnish
Gold and diamonds will always be the common type of ring to give, but its not the main choice. Today, a lot of people are looking for alternatives for it, and they have learned that if it is shimmering and doesn’t tarnish it is worth it. So, shimmers don’t actually have to be more dollars to spend.
A good example of what I am talking about is silver rings and Cubic Zirconia Stones. Silver is a great alternative for expensive metals, in fact, if properly handled, its gleam is brighter than white gold. While CZ stones are just as shimmering as diamonds but it is better because it is way less expensive compared to other precious rings. So it is a great option for you to give to your dame.
While you are thinking of a sample, you can take a look on our I Do Solitaire Ring and decide if this design is a good choice.
- Notice how her finger looks like
You can get the perfect ring for her if you know how her finger looks like. It’s all about matching, so if you know what type of ring is great for her, everything will be perfect.
If your girl has short and wide fingers, you may consider her to give her a ring that will make her finger look longer and slender. Rings that have long stone designs are great for her, stone designs such as oval or marquise cut diamonds, but don’t pick large one because it may conceal her finger and make it look shorter. Also, thin bands are perfect for her as it will also contour its finger width.
A good example of ring designs for her is this Her Majesty ring. This ring design is best for short and stout fingers.
If her fingers are slender and long then you may consider giving her a ring that has a small stone yet wider bands. Stone designs such as princess or round cuts are perfect for her finger to make it look wider, wider bands conceal the skinniness and make her finger look stouter.
If you think her finger is that type, then I guarantee you the Crown Ring will be the best one for her.
- Tone color = stone color
Like what I’ve stated, the perfect ring will be based on how her finger looks and by this time we will consider on how she looks. In order to determine the right kind of ring for her, you can choose varieties that will perfectly match her skin color
If your soon-to-be wife has more of a cool skin tone, best to have stone colors that are high contrast, such as sapphire, amethyst or emerald. A great sample of it is this is this majestic Pink Romance Ring. A great warm and contrasted amethyst stone to partner with her cool skin tone.
While if your girl has a warm skin tone, you can pick a stone that is on the other way around. Bright or warm colored stones such as aquamarine, topaz, ruby or peridot are the best choice for them. just like this Azure Spur Ring, a great way to add more glam to her warm skin.
But still, if you aren’t really sure about her skin color, Diamonds are still the best option and can be a great match for each tone. You can look here to see our Luxe collections for more ring designs.
It’s not always about the money when expressing your desire to marry your girl, sometimes being wise at all things sure will save you a lot of time and money without the culprit of disadvantages.

While there are a lot of fashionable jewelry out there, they also have different values. Ever wonder why some are cheaper and some are so expensive? I’ve thought about it too, so I manage to search for the answer and this is what we have learned.
The value of the jewelry depends on how much metal was used to make it and WHICH metal are used to build it. Here is the list of the metals that are commonly used for jewelry productions.
For jewelry, silver is used in the form of sterling silver, which is 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. They are durable and has a longer lifespan compared to other metals. Therefore, silver jewelry are a common type of jewelry in the market. While it is considered a durable metal, it is considered softer than gold, platinum, and titanium. Which why it is cheaper compare to other precious metals such as gold and platinum.
Gold is one of the finest metals used for jewelry. Its intrinsic value is more expensive than silver, because of its characteristics. Gold is more malleable but durable compare to silver and other metals, and it is also hard to find, which is why it is more precious.
The metals used to alloy gold for it to be a jewelry are metals which are harder than it such as copper, nickel, and zinc. The actual gold content of metal is measured in Karats (K) or carats (ct), which describes the proportion of pure gold to the other metals in the material. The larger the portion of gold in a jewelry, the high the value it will be.
The maximum gold content is 24K, but 24k jewelry are known to be softer and easier to break, so today, it is rare to find a 24k gold jewelry. Typical gold jewelry are in a form of 14k gold, 16k gold, 18k gold and 21k gold.
Pure gold is mere yellow when it comes to color. I know you may think where did rose gold and white gold came from. Here’s how are they made.
- Yellow gold is the alloy of pure gold, silver, and copper or zinc. The metals are mixed in a predetermined proportion.
- White gold is the alloy of pure gold and white metals, such as nickel, silver, and palladium. It is grayish in color and is plated with rhodium to give it a whiter look. Today, nickel is not preferred, as many people are allergic to it.
- Rose gold is the alloy of pure gold and a great proportion of copper. The reddish hue is due to the increased of copper in the alloy.
Platinum is the rarest and most expensive of the metals. Platinum metal is hard to find and it will take tons of indigenous soil to produce a pound of platinum. It is incredibly durable, way more durable than titanium and steel.
Costume metals such as iron, nickel, copper, and titanium, are used to make costume types of jewelry. But as stated earlier, these types of metals are used to mix with the precious metals to gain durability and hardness. These types of metals are known to have no intrinsic value, that’s why jewelry that are made of costume metals are way cheaper compared to gold, silver, and platinum.
Titanium, which mentioned, is a metal type that is completely hypoallergenic. In fact, titanium is the most hypoallergenic material known to man. So a titanium made jewelry is good for those people who have terrible allergies to other types of metals.
Aside from that, titanium is also known to be the hardest type of metal. If you are looking for costume jewelry that lasts long, I recommend titanium. However, if you are planning on buying a titanium ring, you should assure that your fingers are fully grown or in its final form because titanium jewelry cannot be formed or even cut offed for a resize.
Stainless steel is an alloy of iron to two or more costume metals mentioned earlier. The term “stainless” refers to the character of the said alloy to not tarnish or corrode. Stainless steel is also used for surgical needles and ear pierces, because it is also known to be one of the hypoallergenic types of alloy used in making jewelry and hospital items.
Some of the metals are quite expensive and most people can’t afford it. But hey! Why not purchase some jewelry that almost looks like the precious ones but affordable and at high-quality? If you think that’s a great idea! Then shop now at vivererosse.com. Where you can find high-class and high-quality costume gold and white gold jewelry and the finest AUTHENTIC 9.25 sterling silver jewelry!
Pearls are considered as one of the most precious stones that are available in the market. But unlike the others, pearls came from the sea, which is produced by a type of organism which is a mollusk. Mollusks are shellfish species, particularly the oyster, they are the ones who produce pearls.
How are they made?
A natural pearl begins its life inside an oyster's shell when an intruder, such as a grain of sand or a bit of floating food, slips in between one of the two shells of the oyster, a type of mollusk, and the protective layer that covers the mollusk's organs, called the mantle.
In order to protect itself from irritation, the oyster will quickly begin covering the uninvited visitor with layers of nacre — the mineral substance that fashions the mollusk's shells. Layer upon layer of nacre, also known as mother-of-pearl, coat the grain of sand until the iridescent gem is formed.
Kinds of pearls
There are two processes of making a pearl: naturally or cultured. Cultured pearls are made in the same way. The only difference is that instead of accidental circumstances, a "pearl farmer" embeds a grain of sand into the mollusk.
The different types of pearls
There are a variety of pearls that is being produced and each one has a different value and grading.
South Sea Pearls
Cultivated primarily in Australia, Myanmar, Indonesia, and the islands of the South Pacific. They are produced by the oyster species Pinctada maxima.
South Sea pearls tend to be both the largest and the rarest of pearls. Their rarity is due to the fact that growing larger pearls requires a great deal of time, during which many things can go wrong: the oysters can die, the pearl can become misshapen, etc.
Thus, South Sea pearls tend to be among the most expensive of pearls, commanding high prices for quality specimens. Their most common colors are white, silver, and gold.
(Grown in Japan and China) Akoya pearls are the classic cultured pearls of Japan. They are produced by sea oysters and they are considered as the most lustrous of all pearls found anywhere in the world.
The Akoya pearl is either white or cream in body color and can have yellow, pink or blue hues. Some Akoya pearls achieve a rosé or green overtone. It typically has an excellent, good or fair luster, which is why the Akoya is such a prized gem.
The most highly valued Akoyas are larger, have excellent luster and clean surface quality. Only one pearl and maybe an accidental Keshi pearl is harvested from one oyster. This is one reason why sea pearls are usually has a higher price compare to freshwater pearls.
The most affordable pearls sold today, freshwater pearls are known for baroque shapes, white and pastel body colors and softer luster than akoya (except in the case of rare metallic).
With natural pastel colors and shapes that range from perfectly round to free-form baroque, freshwater pearls offer a widest range of options.
Common sizes range from 5 mm to 12 mm, but recent advances have led to the development of round and baroque pearls as large as 20 mm.
Sea shell pearl
Sea shell pearl is a man-made pearl from the shell of an oyster. The base of the pearl is the sea shell, which is covered and refined to the finishing shape of the pearl. In order to produce an excellent quality pearl, a key element is what we call a 'mother of pearl bead'. This element adds weight, value and durability to the pearl.
Tahitian pearls grown in French Polynesia are the only naturally dark pearls. Although often referred to as black, Tahitian pearls come in a rainbow of exotic colors.
Round Tahitian pearls are quite rare but other fun shapes like drops, baroque, and ovals are highly-sought and still considered very valuable.
When measured perpendicular to the drill hole, most Tahitians range in size from 8 mm to 15 mm regardless of shape.
Authentic pearls are quite expensive and most people can't afford it. So as an alternative, we have some of it here at Viveree Rosse! you can browse our products and can look for various pearl jewelry here!
