Let Your Wedding Band Complement your Engagement Ring

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings, Wedding Bands | No Comments

Did you receive a gorgeous vintage engagement ring during your proposal? Or was it a sleek, modern and contemporary ring? Whatever the case, Randor can help you find the perfect wedding band to complement your engagement ring. These two rings should sit in harmony along your finger for the years to come. Here are some tips to consider when choosing the right wedding band.

If you have a solitaire design wedding ring with a princess, round or emerald diamond, avoid matching the ring and opt for a band that will bring out its best features: the diamond. This style is one of the easiest to work with because it has one main attraction!

Our Pavé set diamond wedding ring could be an excellent choice in this scenario. It features a set of three rows of round cut brilliant diamonds on an 18kt white gold band. This would add a little texture and shine to the duo without taking away from the bauble.pave1

Our Bezel-Set Band  made of 18kt white gold could also be a great option for a solitaire ring or even for a bezel-set diamond engagement ring. Its unique use of shape between round cut and princess cut diamonds makes it the perfect addition to add texture or flare to simpler wedding rings or to support larger unique standout pieces.

If your engagement ring is quite decorative, you might want to opt for a wedding band that has more solid features to strike a nice balance! Our Channel-Set wedding ring is a solid 18kt white gold ring that features seven round diamonds in a channel.

We can also custom design your wedding ring for you. This is a great option if you have an engagement ring that has specific requirements. We will examine its features, curvature and how it sits on your finger and design a wedding band with your needs in mind.

What Should You Look for in a Diamond?

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings | No Comments

Diamonds are forever, or so says popular culture. We all feel something when we look at a diamond: awe, love, a feeling of luxury and permanence. Diamonds are a status symbol, a symbol of eternal love – and an economic investment.

However sentimental a diamond might make us, ultimately choosing a diamond is also an economic choice which should be entered into with knowledge of the practical aspects of diamond quality. Choosing a diamond is more complicated than choosing a setting and style. Jewellers who specialize in diamonds and other diamond experts know that not all diamonds are created equal; some stones just shine a little brighter than the rest. So, what do the experts look for?

In the diamond world, there are four characteristics that are examined in a diamond.

The 4 C’s:

  • Clarity
  • Colour
  • Carat Weight
  • Cut

How is Clarity Evaluated?

Clarity is evaluated according to two characteristics:  a diamond’s internal features, called inclusions, and surface irregularities, called blemishes. These two types of features are called clarity characteristics.

Examining a diamond’s characteristics affects price (generally a diamond with higher clarity has a correspondingly higher price). However, these characteristics also allow true diamonds to be separated from false diamonds, and clarity characteristics can allow individual diamonds to be identified. Note: Truly flawless diamonds are incredibly rare.

How is Colour Evaluated?  

Diamonds come in many colours. Usually they range from colourless to yellow or light brown.  Colourless diamonds represent the high end of the price scale. All diamonds are graded on a colour scale that ranges from A to Z and is established by the Gemological Institute of America.

Evaluating Carat Weight

The connection between diamond weight and price is quite simple; the larger the diamond is, the more it costs. However, you may be surprised to find out how miniscule the differences can be. Diamonds are weighed to a thousandth (0.001) of a carat and then rounded to the nearest hundredth, or point.

Cut

Think of a cut as being the quality of the diamond’s designer. You may have excellent fabric for a dress, and a good colour, but if the dress is not designed or made well, it will never look good on you. Cut refers to a diamond’s proportions, symmetry and polish, all of which can have a huge effect on the appearance (and worth) of the diamond.

Our most popular Channel Wedding Rings

By | Engagement Rings, Wedding Rings | No Comments

The joining of two people together in holy matrimony is one of the world’s oldest institutions. Professing your dedication to each other both spiritually, and in the eyes of the law is the final cap on all of the hard work that you’ve put into your relationship over the years.

Here are our most popular Channel Wedding Rings.

Why Are Diamonds Used in Engagement Rings?

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings | No Comments

“I do”. Those are the famous words uttered by countless couples who’ve joined together in holy matrimony in one of the oldest and most sacred institutions in human culture. But long before these words are spoken, a promise is made that signifies a couple is ready to take the next step.

An engagement ring is the method of choice for the happy couples that decide to make the promise. It is worn around the finger as a symbol of marriage until the bond is actually set in stone. The ancient Romans used to exchange betrothal rings made of iron, and later of gold.

In the middle ages, aristocrats in Europe devised a plan to present an “engagement” ring to their betrothed while waiting for the day when they could marry them. After all, there is a lot of planning and waiting for a wedding ceremony, and they didn’t want their fiancés to fall for someone else!

Using engagement rings have always had an interesting history, but using diamonds did not occur until the Archduke Maximilian of Austria gave one to his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy, in 1477. Despite this display, diamonds as an engagement ring still did not catch on mostly because diamonds were not a part of the world market at this time, and were an exceptionally valuable and rare gem stone.

A Tradition is Born

It wasn’t until the late 1870s, when South African diamonds began to enter the market, that the stones became a viable option for engagement rings. In 1888, the top dealers came together and formed De Beers Consolidated Mines, Ltd., that soon controlled the majority of the industry. At this time, diamond engagement rings began to be quite popular because of the De Beers marketing campaigns in the late 1930’s.

Americans fell in love with the thought of owning and wearing a diamond by seeing Hollywood stars and fashion designers featuring diamonds of their own. Diamonds became a must-have. In 1947, the phrase “a diamond is forever,” was coined through the De Beers advertising agency, and they continue to use it today.

An engagement ring is a symbol of more than the love between two people. It is the continuation of an age-old tradition that unites a couple together in a sacred bond, and legally binds them together in holy matrimony.

With the proliferation and availability of diamonds, a beautiful engagement ring is affordable to any and all who wish to take part in this timeless tradition. If you wish to learn more, we here at Randor have just the right fit for your tastes.

What You Need to Know about Engagement Ring Sizes

By | Engagement Rings | No Comments

You have memorized your shoe size, hat size, and even the length of your inseam, but do you know your ring size? Chances are the answer is no. There is also a very good chance that you have no idea about the ring size of your soon-to-be fiancée, either. You should know that this is one of the most important details that you will need when purchasing an engagement ring.

Unfortunately, if you want to surprise your loved one with the ring, figuring out her ring size may be easier said than done. Here are some tips that will help you along:

Grab Another Ring

Does she wear rings every day? If so, you can grab the one she wears on her left ring finger. However, if she will see it is missing, you will not be able to take it with you to the jeweler, but you can press it into clay or soap so you have an outline of the size.

Use String

Another option is to tie a piece of string around her finger and tie a knot at the proper size. You may have to be sneaky about it, but you will be able to use the string to determine the size she wears.

Ask Her Friends

You can enlist the help of her friends to find out her ring size. Ask them to pass around their rings for her to try on and see if any are the same size.

While the majority of rings can be sized up or down as needed, you don’t want this sizing to be so significant that it is noticeable. Also, there are a number of materials that are more difficult to size than others, so you should keep this in mind when you are shopping. The ideal situation is to get an accurate measurement of the ring size you need.
