All the fact you need to know about White gold.

Twig Ring by Ralph Jacobs

One of the most popular metal choices for jewellery and more specifically engagement rings is white gold. It’s a beautiful shade of gold, very subtle and not as bright as a yellow gold.

White gold is a mixture of pure yellow gold and other metals that make the resulting alloy harder giving it its white colour. If you’re concerned that white gold is not as durable is gold, you have nothing to worry about. White gold is quite durable, yet you should keep in mind that its hardness also depends on the material’s purity and what other metals are mixed in with the pure yellow gold.

As you now know, your choice between white gold and yellow gold should not be affected by durability but simply personal preference. The only aspect that could influence your white gold decision is the fact that white gold jewellery needs to be replated after a certain period, which usually ranges from 1 to 3 years.

Whether you go for the traditional diamond, or a sparkling Moissanite, white gold will always be a classic take on metals for an engagement ring.

If you are concerned that white gold isn’t real gold, you can rest assure that it is indeed still real gold. It does contain alloy metals, yet white gold is made from real, pure gold. You’ll be able to verify that your white gold jewellery contains real gold by looking at its hallmark.

Below is beautiful and unique white gold engagement rings. Keep scrolling for some engagement ring inspiration.

The oval shaped engagement ring is a symbol of a forever promise. This unique and classy ring celebrates the creative mind and kindred-spirit. The other beautiful symbolism behind the oval ring is that this shape represents the promise of a happy family and many children.

Ralph Jacobs | 4 Reasons We Love Oval Shaped Engagement Rings | Jewellery

The oval shape diamond is not quite a simple circle and it steers clear of the harsh-lines an emerald or other squared-shaped stone encompasses. The oval stands as a sign of uniqueness and a zest for life. The word oval comes from the Latin words ov or ovum, meaning egg. This shape represents rebirth, fertility and even immortality. Which is why this engagement ring promises a life filled with laughter and happy children. An oval engagement ring is a beautiful way to begin a new life together.

Whether you set the center stone with a Diamond or a Moissanite, the end results are always stunning.

1. Timeless Classic

The oval engagement ring is the perfect choice for the bride that’s intrigued by something that’s a little different than the norm, yet remains classic. The oval engagement ring is very popular amongst celebrities these days. Many celebrities such as Blake Lively, Haily Bieber and Julienne Hough have said the big YES to an oval shaped engagement ring.

2. Illusion of Long Appearance

This is perhaps the biggest advantages of an oval shaped engagement ring. The shape itself with its length gives an appearance of longer, more slender fingers to the wearer.

3. Appears Large

On top of the illusion of longer, slender fingers, another benefit to this stone shape is that it tends to look larger than say a round, in the same carat weight. The reason behind this is because ovals often have greater surface areas than round diamonds of the same weight.  

4. Amazing Shine

The oval shape is a brilliant cut, which means they have amazing shine and do not cost more than rounds diamonds and moissanites when all other factors are the same.

Engagement Rings inspired by this winter season.

Ralph Jacobs | Winter Inspired Engagement Rings | Jewellery

The month of May is finally here, and with it comes a lovely cold breeze of winter in all of its wallowing pride. This is not considered the most romantic season for all, but it could certainly be extremely romantic for the perfect couple. If you have the ideal proposal in mind and the ring to match, why not pop the question in the middle of winter with a winter inspired engagement ring? This blog will give you many winter inspired engagement ring ideas.

Winter is usually associated with colder colours, such as blues and greys, however, if you prefer to go the warmer route that is also encouraged. Warm reds and oranges gives the illusion of heat during the cold. Because of this we are going to look at the different coloured stones, best suited for a winter inspired engagement ring, as well as which metals work best with winter.

Rubies & Rose Gold

According to Gia, “Ruby is the most valuable variety of the corundum mineral species, which also includes sapphire.” A ruby with his beautiful moody red colour is ideal for a winter proposal. We are a few months early with regards to birthstones, as the ruby is July’s birthstone. However, if you are considering a winter proposal, hold on to that ruby red engagement ring for another two months and pop the question during her birth month with her winter inspired birth stone engagement ring.

The alternative to ruby, which might be slightly expensive, is a red moissanite from Evermore Moissanite – The Moissanite has a brilliant shimmer to it and will resemble a red ruby to perfection.

The ravenous red ruby gemstone actually works well with any metal band, however to stay in tune with the winter inspiration a warm rose gold band works splendidly with the red ruby. Keep scrolling down to see some winter inspired engagement ring examples.

Sapphires and White Gold

For the lady who prefers the gloomy mood and enjoys the colder winter days, the blue sapphire along with a white gold band is the ideal combination for her winter inspired engagement ring. Noticed how we said blue sapphire, yes, that’s because you do get other coloured sapphires, such as pink. However, if you are loving the winter inspired engagement ring look, the blue is definitely the option to choose. Sapphires, along with rubies, are leaning towards the more expensive side of gemstones. Even if you simply choose a blue coloured gemstone for your special person’s winter inspired engagement ring it will make her day.

Ralph Jacobs | Winter Inspired Engagement Rings | Jewellery

The alternative blue gemstone is the amethyst. It does appear more purplish, but it will still make for a perfect winter inspired engagement ring. The amethyst, also known as the Katela, as wonderful healing properties. And according to many sources, this stone can assist in overcoming addiction.

Diamonds
Diamond Engagement Ring by Ralph Jacobs

The diamond, composed solely of carbon, is the hardest gemstone and can be cut only by another diamond. Diamonds form about 90 miles deep in Earth.

It is believed that the first engagement ring that contained a diamond was given in 1477 by Archduke Maximilian of Austria to his fiancée, Mary of Burgundy. Today, diamonds are the most popular choice of stone for an engagement ring.

The largest known diamond is 2,500 miles wide and weighs approximately 10 billion trillion trillion carats.

Diamond symbolizes everlasting love. It was also once thought to protect against poison. It is believed that the person wearing a diamond will be protected from negative energies and brought peace.

Naturally, with everything that is going on in the news with Harry and Meghan Markle we had to jump in on the band wagon and look at some of the most extravagant royal engagement rings throughout history. Starting with the most loved, Diana.

Princess Diana

Princess Diana had the opportunity to choose between a few engagement rings from a selection presented to her by Garrard Jewelers when Prince Charles proposed. And of course a lady with her grace and style chose an 18-carat oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds. 

Queen Elizabeth II

Prince Edward surprised Sarah Ferguson with a beautiful, one-of-a-kind ruby engagement ring from Garrard Jewelers. A small tale about this royal engagement ring is that he chose the colour because it matched her hair. So sweet!

Princess Eugenie

Did you have to do a double take? Yes, Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring looks awfully familiar to Sarah Fergusson’s, because it was designed to resemble her mother’s royal engagement ring. Princess Eugenie announced her engagement to longtime love Jack Brooksbank in January 2018 and showed off her lovely pink sapphire royal engagement ring in their official engagement portrait. Princess Eugenie’s pink sapphire stone is also surrounded by diamonds and it is the same cut and colour as the ring her mother received from her father Prince Andrew.

Princess Grace

The loveliest of emerald-cut engagement rings.  Princess Grace Kelly received two engagement rings from Prince Ranier III of Monaco. The first royal engagement ring that she received was a Cartier eternity band of rubies and diamonds  and the second was a 10.5-carat emerald-cut Cartier diamond ring flanked by two baguettes (which is pictured above).

Emerald cut diamonds or Moissanites have a square face and stepped facets. It is these crisp edges and the bold rectangular shape that makes this a stunning choice for an engagement ring.

Sadly, some of these characteristics the stone has tends to make the stone a little bit less brilliant, however it does allow the stone to show off great depth and drama as the light and dark parts of the facets play off each other. If you are an undecisive bride-to-be, the benefit of the emerald cut engagement rings is that it works well with any type of metal, including gold, platinum, or silver.

The Origin of the Emerald Cut Engagement Ring

Ralph Jacobs | Everything Emerald Cut Engagement Rings | Jewellery
www.quora.com

It all started with the Sumerians – some of the earliest records of people wearing emerald rings on their left ring fingers were from them. They believed that emeralds had an anti-inflammatory effect, especially on the eyes. Over time and all over the world, emerald engagement rings have been popular.

What are Emerald Cut Engagement Rings?

The emerald cut basically refers to a rectangle-style stone. A unique aspect to this stone is that it is long and flat. This style gemstone usually has layered corners and long facets. A fun fact is that these gemstones are called the hall of mirrors, because of the way that they are cut, they often create illusions of light. This remains a very unique gemstone to have as an engagement ring, and even though they have grown in popularity it’s not every day you see someone wearing an emerald cut, which makes it an even more enchanting choice.

Different Emerald Cut Styles

If you have decided that emerald cut is the way for you and there’s no other way, then it is time for you to start picking a style. Emerald styles can include many options such as vintage, classic, and unique.

Emerald solitaire engagement rings are definitely at the top of the list of most popular emerald rings. Because of its simplicity, with classic single emeralds on white gold or platinum band allows for the classic beauty of the emerald to shine through all the other elements. If you are a sparkling loving girl, then adding accent diamonds to an emerald solitaire ring will surely add some extra sparkle to that classic appearance.
