Type of Jewel
The type of jewel you want is of course a very personal choice, but we are here to advise you in case you want. If you need inspiration, you can have a look in our jewelry gallery, where you’ll find many examples of rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets that we have made for our clients.
Choosing the Right Metal for Your Jewel
It is important to have the color of the diamond in mind when choosing the gold color for your jewel. Some natural color diamonds will look beautiful set in gold of any color, whereas other are more complicated.
White gold for example, will enhance the color of blue diamonds, but can reduce the intensity and beauty of a pink diamond. In many cases it is a matter of taste, for example an olive diamond set in a white gold band, will look sophisticated, alluring, and display lime undertones. By comparison, when set in yellow gold, this colour of diamond looks beautiful in a completely different way, appearing warm and soft-toned, with mossy and bottle-green nuances.
For pink diamonds, on the other hand, we strongly advise to set them in rose gold, which will naturally add to the stones natural color. For similar reasons, for yellow diamonds it is advised to set them in yellow gold, to add to the diamond’s color intensity.
We are here to advice you on this, and keep in mind that it is always possible to adapt the jewel to the diamond. If you want a pink diamond in a white gold ring, and still want the color to be enhanced, it is possible to make just the setting closest to the stone in rose gold and the rest in white gold, for example.
We understand that finding the perfect fit for your jewelry is essential for both comfort and style. Whether you're shopping for rings, necklaces, bracelets, or earrings,we will assist you in selecting the ideal jewelry piece that suits your preferences.
When it comes to rings, it's important to determine your ring size accurately. We recommend using our ring size guide or measuring a ring you already have.
Necklaces come in various lengths, and choosing the right length is key to achieving the desired look. Consider your neckline, personal style, and the occasion when selecting the appropriate necklace length.
Bracelets should fit comfortably around your wrist without being too loose or too tight. To determine your bracelet size, use a measuring tape or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your wrist.
Earrings come in various shapes and sizes, and it's essential to consider both the earring style and your personal preferences. You can take into account your hairstyle, face shape, and the occasion to choose earrings that complement your overall look.
Remember, each jewelry piece may have specific variations in size, so be sure to refer to the product description for any additional size information or contact us for recommendations.
Type of Setting
The type of setting that you choose for your diamond is important – it can completely change the way your diamond stands out. Here below is a list of different settings, and examples of jewels that we have made for our clients.
The prong-setting is very commonly used for different types of jewels, and being a simple, elegant setting it will leave all the attention for the diamond. Prong-set diamonds can be linked together in a bracelet or a necklace. It is also the setting that is used when we make our eternity rings and cuff bracelets.
Bezel-setting is a setting that completely encircles the diamond. It is beautiful for any diamond, but can be especially interesting if you have chosen a small diamond, as this setting will make the diamond appear larger.
A pavé-setting is a magnificent way to set small diamonds. An incredible sparkle and life is created when many small diamonds are set together.
- Tension setting:
This is a gorgeous way to make your diamond stand out. A tension setting gives the impression that the diamonds float freely in the setting. It looks fragile, but when properly done there is no risk of losing or damaging your diamond.
- Drilled Diamonds:
It is also beautiful to makes jewels with drilled bead diamonds. They can be threaded like a pearl necklace, or mounted sole in earrings or other jewels. Both rough and polished diamonds can be drilled and used as beads.
- Incrusting a Diamond in a Jewel:
This is a setting that is especially beautiful for rings, and which makes it possible to set a diamond by incrusting it directly in the metal. It gives a very graphical, modern look to the jewel, and beautifully merges the jewel and the diamond together.
- Adding a Halo:
A halo of smaller diamonds can be added to your jewel, to create a frame embracing and enhancing the center diamond. It can be made in a contrasting color, or in the same or a similar color as the center stone, which will make that diamond appear larger. Here below is a photo of a pendant with a double halo in a similar nuance to the 0.40 carat center stone, which looks much bigger than its weight.
