  • THE PERFECT PRESENT FOR ST. VALENTINE’S DAY

    Valentine’s Day is less than a month away so it’s time to start thinking of the perfect gift to give your special someone. Officially the most romantic day of the year this is the perfect opportunity to show the person that you care the most about just how special they are to you with a thoughtful gift that marks your adoration and love.  

    St Valentine’s Day originates back to 270 A.D. and has always been on the 14th February as this was the date on which Saint Priest Valentine was executed in Rome.  Saint Valentine was a deeply religious man and wholly believed in the sanctity of marriage. He was imprisoned when Emperor Claudius found out that he was performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. It is said that during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius, and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.  

    The first time that St Valentine’s Day became romantically associated was in the 14th century when courtly love was in abundance. During the 18th century gifts began to be sent on  this special day  such as flowers, sweets and greeting cards which in these times were called ‘valentines’ , and this was the beginning of ‘Valentine’s Day’ as we know it today.

  • CHOOSING A DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING FOR VALENTINES DAY

    Have you have found "The One" and decided that St. Valentines' day, the most romantic day of the year is the perfect day for your proposal? If so, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner you will no doubt have begun to consider choosing a diamond engagement ring to pop the question with that she will love and cherish just as much as she does you.  Here we have prepared a short guide to choosing the perfect diamond engagement ring for a Valentines' day proposal: 

    Style and taste is a very personal thing and it has been said that no one woman will have exactly the same tastes as any other.  Therefore, as her prospective husband to be it is your job to decide exactly which diamond engagement ring is perfect for your Valentine knowing what her likes and dislikes are in jewellery and fashion. 

    Which Style of Setting Will You Choose for Your Diamond Engagement Ring? 

    This is possibly the first decision you will need to make as to which style of engagement ring setting is she going to want to wear for the rest of her life? Broadly speaking the styles of engagement ring settings can be categorised into two main engagement ring styles which are Solitaire and Multi-Stone. 

    Solitaire SettingsAs the name suggest this refers to an engagement ring that is made from one diamond alone.  The Solitaire style is perhaps the most popular choice of engagement ring as it is simple, stylishly classical yet always fashionable, and its beauty will undoubtedly stand the test of time.  If you choose a solitaire setting for your fiancé, it's important to ensure your diamond is of the highest quality as the solitaire diamond will be the focus of everyone's attention that gazes upon her engagement ring therefore we strongly recommend that  you must go for the diamond that offers the best cut, colour and clarity within your budget.  

    Multi-Stone Setting: this is a very general term that describes an engagement ring that is anything but a solitaire and they can be seen as giving you much more freedom to create a Valentines' engagement ring that will stand out from the crowd. 

    One of the most popular of the multi-stone setting engagement rings is a ring with a three diamond setting which is often referred to as a ‘Trilogy’ or ‘Trinity’ setting. This classical design is the perfect choice for a lady who loves her jewellery with a lot of fire and sparkle. 

    This setting has to be a strong contender for the title of "Perfect Engagement Ring for a Valentine's Proposal" as the multi-stone Trilogy engagement ring setting is said to symbolise the story of the journey that a relationship takes.  Many couples view the three diamonds within the ring as being symbolic of their commitment to being “my past, my present and my future”.  The larger middle diamond represents and the smaller stones either side represent the past and future.  

    Which Metal To Choose?  

    Once you have decided upon the setting of engagement ring that will most suit your spouse to be’s taste and style, the next all important decision is which metal to choose for your engagement ring.  Each of our gorgeous diamond engagement ring styles is available in 18ct white gold, 18ct yellow gold or platinum, so your starting point and first dilemma is colour... Is your Valentine a fan of platinum or does she prefer White, or Yellow gold?  Take a look at what jewellery she already owns and then you can decide if you wish to complement or contrast her existing collection with your chosen engagement ring.   

    If you loved one is more of a traditionalist then Yellow gold is likely to find favour as it has long been the choice of metal for diamond engagement rings and its rich burnished colour has been a symbol of wealth and prosperity for centuries. 

    If you think your Valentine is more of a white metal girl, then the choice between White Gold and Platinum can be more complex so here is a quick guide: 

    Platinum derives its name from the Spanish word platina, meaning "little silver."  It is a very dense metal that is more precious than gold.  Platinum is a beautiful metal and its stunning white silver finish instantly brings out the sparkle and shine in any diamond. Due to its rarity, Platinum has become synonymous with the expression of love, becoming the perfect metal for engagement rings.   

    18ct White Gold is the result of combining yellow gold with white metal alloys such as silver and palladium, so as such is not actually a naturally occurring metal.  As gold is naturally a soft metal it has to be mixed so that the jewellery that it forms can withstand wear and tear.  The Carat (ct) measurement indicates how much natural gold is present in your White Gold engagement ring. White gold is very popular with modern fashionista’s as it has a very contemporary look possibly because of its metallic ice-like sheen. It will be a great choice of metal if your loved one prefers a silver finish but your budget will not stretch to a Platinum engagement ring. 

    Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend 

    The final component, but possibly the most important factor, in choosing your perfect Valentine engagement ring has to be the diamond.   There are a lot of factors that combine to make a beautiful diamond and it is very important that you know the basics, the all-important ‘4C's’ which colour, cut, clarity and carat.  We've dedicated a whole section of our website to help you understand quality diamonds. But if all this information makes you head spin, the highly experienced team here at Rêve Diamonds are diamond experts and we are happy to guide you through the process of creating the perfect engagement ring for a Valentine’s Day proposal.   

    We even offer a bespoke engagement ring service whereby we will create a stunning engagement ring to your very own design to suit your budget, after all a Valentine’s Day proposal does demand a very special ring! 

  • THE FIVE MOST ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BLACK DIAMONDS

    In recent years black diamonds have grown massively in popularity to become one of the most popular of the fancy coloured natural diamonds.  The reasons for this may be that the demand for non-conventional engagement rings has grown significantly the styles of which perfectly suits the incorporation of black diamonds. Plus many celebrities are now wearing jewellery and engagement rings featuring black diamonds.   However, even though black diamonds are so popular, there is still a lot that is unknown about them and a lot of misinformation and misconception surrounding these stunning gemstones.  Here are answers to the five most asked questions about black diamonds: 

    1. What is a black diamond? Is it real and what is the difference between black and white diamonds? 

    Black diamonds re MOST DEFINITELY real!  If you ask a variety of experts in the diamond industry what is a black diamond?" this will result in several answers as there are in fact two types of black diamonds:  

    1. Natural black diamonds (also called fancy diamonds or Carbonados). These are quite different than other natural fancy coloured diamonds and for that reason are widely considered to be rarer. The main difference is that natural coloured diamonds get their colour due to impurities that are attached to them during the formation process i.e. boron causes blue diamonds.  Black diamonds are created from an impure form of polycrystalline diamond consisting of diamond, graphite, and amorphous carbon.  
    1. Treated black diamonds. These are regular white diamonds that are usually of extremely low value due to the high amount of inclusions in them. Since they have so many inclusions, as white diamonds they would only want to use them as industry grade diamonds and not for use in jewellery making. However, with the help of treatments such as irradiation or heat they are transformed into "colourless treated black diamonds" also called "black coloured diamonds".  This type of black diamond is the cheapest type of black diamonds. 

    Black diamonds and white (colourless) diamonds are almost the same. The main difference is that the black colour is produced by the inclusion of graphite in the crystalline structure during the diamond's formation, before the kimberlite deposits reached the Earth's surface. Therefore, the only difference between them is that black diamonds have the graphite inclusion and white diamonds do not. They are both formed by high pressure on the element of carbon under the Earth's surface, that produces a repeating geometric pattern in the crystal lattice. Black diamonds are completely real diamonds and almost exactly the same as white diamonds except for the colour.  

    1. Are Black Diamonds rare and are they considered a good investment? 

    Whilst they are by no means the rarest occurring colour in nature, natural fancy black diamonds are indeed more rare than common colourless diamonds and they are one of the most valued for their artistic beauty and dark allure, all of which means that they can command a higher price.  Within the jewellery trade blue, red and pink diamonds are considered the most desirable of natural fancy coloured diamonds for investment (where investment is defined as a diamond whose value rises considerably over time as their supply deteriorates and demand continues to rise).  A natural fancy black diamond would only be considered an investment item if it was considerably large or had a distinctive feature or factor that would make it in high demand in the market.  

    1. Are Black Diamonds Expensive? 

    The answer to this question must be yes and no. Treated or enhanced black diamonds are less expensive and the demand for them is relatively low as many people looking for a piece of jewellery or a ring incorporating a black diamond will prefer to opt for the real thing i.e. a natural fancy coloured black diamond.  Natural fancy black diamonds are in fact quite affordable, but obviously it depends on the size of the diamond and the quality.   Because black diamonds are heavily included and porous, they are often harder to polish.  This can result in blemishes and nicks in the surface that may affect the cut. When buying black diamonds make sure the surface of them is smooth and polished and that the diamond is not porous.   GIA certified natural black diamonds of a good quality can easily fetch $1,500-$3,000 per carat for diamonds weighing 1.00 - 3.00 carats, this is however still cheaper than a colourless white diamond which makes Black Diamonds an excellent cheap alternative to the conventional white diamond ring. 

    1. Are There any Famous Black Diamonds? 

    Possibly the most well know and famous black diamond is the Black Orlov. This was a cushion-cut 67.50 carat diamond brooch. The black diamond was surrounded by 108 white diamonds and suspended from a 124-diamond necklace.  The Black Orlov is also referred to as the "Eye of Brahma" as folklore has it that an uncut black stone of 195 carats was pried out of the eye of the statute of the sacred Hindu God Brahma, from a temple in Southern India.  Other famous black diamonds include the Korloff Noir, the Black Star of Africa, the Gruosi diamond, the Table of Islam and the Spirit of de Grisogono diamond.  

    The largest black diamond in the world is the old Moghul-cut, 312.24 carat, black Spirit of de Grisogono which was mined in the Central African Republic.  The Black Star of Africa is a very impressive 202 carat Fancy Black diamond but sadly it was seen for the last time in Tokyo in 1971.   The Gruosi diamond was a heart-shaped, 115.34 carat black diamond that was discovered in India in 1998 and was cut by the world renowned black diamond cutting specialist, de Grisogono.  The Table of Islam is a Fancy Black square emerald cut diamond weighing in at an impressive 160.18 carats but little is actually known about this diamond. The 88 carat Korloff Noir diamond is currently located with the Korloff jewellers in France and is reputed to bring good luck to the owner. 

    1. Do Black Diamonds Look Good as Jewellery?  

    If you love the allure and mystery that a black diamond possesses then you will no doubt agree that black diamonds, look stunning when used in jewellery and suit both men and women. Black diamonds are seen in many pieces of modern day from necklaces to cufflinks, engagement rings to bracelets and even in wedding rings. Many celebrities wear black diamonds one of the most famous being the black diamond halo ring engagement ring that Mr. Big gave to Carrie Bradshaw in the hugely popular tv show and movie Sex and the City.  Alternative fashion icon Carmen Electra received a black diamond engagement ring and Katherine Heigl, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Evan Rachel Wood, Jennifer Lawrence, Lauren Conrad, and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been seen wearing black diamond earrings   

  • TOP 5 TIPS FOR TAKING AN ENGAGEMENT RING SELFIE

    Congratulations he’s popped the question and you said YES! No doubt you will be bursting with pride and want to shout your good news all over social media, and of course show off that gorgeous engagement ring that your wonderful fiancé has placed lovingly onto your ring finger.  

    Back in the day newly engaged couples announced their happy news with an engagement announcement in their local paper. Nowadays, love them or hate them selfies are THE way to share great news as it's all about shouting it from the rooftops on social media. Engagement ring selfies can be regularly seen plastered all over Instagram and Facebook.  

    For an engagement ring selfie, it is all about making your ring look its very best and showing off that beautiful diamond. Taking a great engagement ring selfie is a bit of an art and if you have ever tried to take a picture of your left hand you will totally understand that it’s not exactly easy. Taken from the wrong angle and you can make your fingers look like stumpy carrots and your beautiful engagement ring look very dull.  So if you are a newly engaged couple here are our five top tips for nailing an awesome engagement ring selfie that will be the envy of all your social media friends: 

    1. The ring is the thing 

    It is vital to remember that in the perfect engagement ring selfie the ring is THE thing.  It needs to be treated like a rock-star and allowed to shine and sparkle in all its brilliant glory. To do this you need to take a very close look at the design of your engagement ring. Decide what is special about it and what feature/s you want to emphasise to showcase this jewel in the crown. Is it a solitaire diamond that is perfectly set? Are there unique and romantic details in the profile view? Is there an engraving somewhere? Is your engagement ring custom made and you have not yet seen another quite like it?  You need to define what makes your engagement ring super special and ensure that the selfie that is taken really highlights this special quality.  

    Experiment with the angle of your shot so that you capture the most amazing qualities of your ring.  But remember, there can be only two best angles to show off the ring - top down and direct from the top. These two angles will give the most real impression of your engagement ring, giving it best coverage in the shot. So for example if you love the ring setting then take a photo on an angle to highlight it.  To show off the shape of the diamond try an overhead shot without the flash.  

    1. Treat yourself to a manicure  

    The ring has to be king in a good engagement ring selfie so do not detract from its beauty by having less than perfect nails that will attract more attention than the beauty of the diamond on your ring finger.  So treat yourself to a really good manicure and get those weather beaten hands looking silky soft and those overgrown cuticles cut short. Have your nails painted in a colour that suits your skin tone but preferably choose a neutral colour that is mild and gentle on the eye as this will make your engagement ring look even more stunning.  

    If your hands are rather veiny, you can resort to the age old trick that many well know models use to make skin look fuller and plumper.  Hold your hand up, above your head for at least 30 seconds which will have the effect of draining the blood from your hand and thus making those protruding veins vanish.  

    If your fiancé caught you by surprise when he proposed and you are overdue for a manicure but he is desperate to make that shout out on social media, then as quick measure put plenty of hand lotion on to soften your skin and get creative with your pose. For example, hold hands with your fiancé and keep your nails just out of the shot or even a fist pump with your nails firmly tucked into the palm of your hand! 

    1. Lighting is everything. 

    If it’s a diamond engagement ring then you will naturally want it to shine like no other diamond has shone before, to do this use light to your advantage.  The best time of day is the short period after sunrise or before sunset as many professional photographers know that lighting during this time makes everything look better. It is very flattering, not only for your ring, but also for your skin and your surroundings.  

    Another reason why natural light is the best for an engagement ring selfie shot is that it will not take over the beauty of your ring.  Nor will it overemphasise the ring or add unnatural gleam to it. It will simply make the beauty of the ring shine out for all to see.  

    If you do not wish to take your engagement ring selfie outside then set up your shot near a window to maximise natural light. If you take a photo with your mobile phone in a dimly lit room, you are pretty much guaranteed to get a blurry photo. Fluorescents and yellow bulb lights aren't much better, you want natural sunlight. Whether you take your engagement ring selfie inside or out, watch out for tricky shadows.  Also remember to take away all the accessories that are not related to the engagement ring. 

    1. Get the right background  

    It is essential that you make sure that your chosen background emphasizes your engagement ring. Using the right prop or appropriate background is a much better idea than going for the sole ring shot. Stay away from cluttered backgrounds and use solid colours keeping a good distance between your hand and the background. Many girls like to use feminine details, like flowers or maybe try to use his hand as a background which is a very romantic gesture.  

    Above all DO NOT use your bathroom or bedroom mirror as mirror selfies are anything but great. 

    Do not use a flash or try to pull in the focus on the ring by zooming in on it as it will only serve to blur the image.   

    1. Camera and Filters

    Photographs taken by mobile phones will never be as good as those taken professionally by a photographer who knows his art. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t take your time to get the perfect one. 

    Firstly do not use the zoom function. If you want to take a close-up picture, with more details, bring your phone closer. Then, tap the screen so that the focus will be on your stunning diamond engagement ring. It is better to avoid filters, but if the no-filter quality doesn’t give you the look that you require then use one. The most commonly used filter is Valencia. 

    It is crucial to try different poses and angles to get that winning image of your engagement ring.  Change the angles and try to see which highlights the centrepiece – the engagement ring. Keep trying until you find the picture that has the perfect shot, expressing your heart and mind. Keep it perfect, soft and romantic.  

  • THE ENGAGEMENT RING TRENDS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2018

    With the flurry of excitement over the royal engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, many couples are now deciding to make a formal commitment to one another by getting engaged. So if you have finally decided to pop the question to your other half this Christmas you will no doubt want to find the perfect engagement ring beforehand.  Here is where it gets interesting!  Considerations such as how much should you be spending, what style of ring to choose, size of diamond…. and many more questions will no doubt be going through your head. But don’t worry we are here to help you choose an engagement ring for your bride-to-be that is on trend and that she will fall instantly in love with. Here are our predictions for the hottest trends in engagement rings for 2018:

    Trilogy engagement rings 

    The royal engagement ring is a stunning trilogy design with a trio of diamonds comprised of two round-cut diamonds and a central cushion cut diamond set on a yellow gold band.  The royal family have a lot of influence when it comes to trends and fashion. Much as Kate Middleton and Princess Diana’s engagement rings sparked a trend, so we expect to see a resurgence in popularity of the three-stone engagement ring.  A trilogy engagement ring is the perfect design to represent your eternal love for your partner as the three stones are said to symbolise friendship, love and fidelity, the necessary ingredients for a happy relationship and marriage. So if you are a couple looking for an engagement ring with a deeper meaning in your the three stone trilogy engagement ring could be just the right choice.

    Yellow gold

    Yellow gold is reportedly Meghan Markle's favourite metal and this was reflected in Prince Harrys choice of a yellow gold band trilogy diamond ring. We predict that this will kick-start a trend with yellow gold rings likely to becoming a popular choice for 2018 much as the Duchess of Cambridge's engagement ring caused an influx of requests for white gold engagement rings.  While yellow gold is by no means new, in recent years it has somewhat lost favour but it is the a very flattering colour for many skin tones and is said to add warmth to diamond rings, with the contrast between cool bright diamonds and the gold band a winning combination.

    The Split Shank

    Trilogy rings are not for every couple and one trend in engagement ring trend that is set to be very popular in 2018 is the split shank ring. This style usually features a solitaire diamond and the band either side is split which leave a gap that shows the finger.  This design gives has a very modern feel to a solitaire ring that is generally considered as a simple and traditional style.

    With the split shank style of engagement ring customisation is a definite option for those that wish to create an engagement ring that is uniquely special. For example, the gap can be made larger on the east and west points and then narrow and closer together at the diamond.  If your fiancé is a fan of all things vintage then a split shank engagement ring will definitely appeal to her as many vintage-inspired engagement rings feature a split shank and the band will often be a French-set or set with diamonds.  In addition for those who love ‘bling’ splitting the band provides more space to add smaller pavé diamonds which give the illusion of added brilliance and sparkle to the engagement ring.   It is also possible to have a variety of diamond shapes for this type of ring.  For example, to create a classic look with an art deco twist why not choose  a round diamond halo style where the split in the band is very subtle and blends into the centre being positioned close to the diamond.

    Many fashionistas and jewellery experts are predicting that this engagement ring trend is sure to dominate in 2018 as vintage fashion is still very much on trend and yellow gold is a great option for this ring style.

    Geometric Silhouettes

    Adding a geometric shape around your solitaire or oval diamond halo ring is becoming very fashionable as many brides-to-be are moving away from feminine lines towards contemporary designs that surround the diamond with a hexagonal frame. The geometric setting makes a very eye-catching statement whilst not detracting from the beauty of the centrepiece diamond.  This style is just perfect for those who embrace cutting edge styles and perfectly complements the 2018 fashion trends for strong metallics and sharp lines.

    On trend shapes

    When choosing the perfect engagement ring for your spouse-to-be it is very important to consider carefully the shape of the centre stone. Pear shaped diamonds are a must have trend for 2018. The elegant cut of per-shaped diamonds will add that extra something to a plain band and give the appearance of slimmer and slender looking fingers.

    Princess cuts are falling in popularity as diamonds with rounded edges are considered the way forward. The oval diamond is very on-trend and it the perfect choice for a look that is far more subtle and has more clarity and depth. Not only do oval diamonds appear larger in a carat by carat comparison with a round diamond, but they also have the bonus of costing less too!

    Fancy Coloured Diamonds 

    Coloured diamonds have become a very popular choice in 2017 and their popularity looks set to increase making it a hot trend for 2018.  If your partner likes to stand out from the crowd why not choose an engagement ring that features a yellow or black diamond as these are set to the stand out colours for 2018.

    Black diamonds are also very much in vogue as they add a slightly frosty feel with a mysterious edge to an engagement ring.  The trend for black diamond engagement rings first became popular back in 2010 when Carrie of Sex and the City was proposed to by Mr Big. Black diamonds are totally natural and offer a very unique brilliance and shine.  They are now being worn by some of the world’s biggest celebrities including Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez.

    Yellow diamonds are reminiscent of warmth and vibrancy and this colour has long been associated with feelings of happiness and positive energy, promoting love and hope.  Yellow diamonds are said to offer spiritual positivity and to provide relief from tiredness and the associated negative emotions.   Yellow diamonds are set to become increasingly popular in 2018 as they are a little different to the brilliant white diamond, and emit more warmth than a black diamond.

    If you decide to choose a coloured diamond for your engagement ring you must be very aware of selecting a band that will complement the diamond otherwise you will end up with a clash of colours.

    The most popular carat weights for diamond engagement rings are between one and two carats. If you are working to a budget then look for diamonds that are just under the popular carat weights such as 1/2 carat, 3/4 carat etc.  As these diamonds fall just under the popular weight, they are often sold at a slight discount compared to diamonds of full weight.  For example, a 0.75 carat diamond will typically cost less on a price-per-carat basis than a full one carat diamond.  Visually, they are difficult to distinguish; in fact a smaller carat weight diamond may have a diameter equal to that of a heavier diamond, making it appear the same size when viewed from above. If you do opt for a diamond that is less than 0.75 carats, consider a marquise cut which, due to its elongated cut, will give the illusion of looking larger than other shapes of equal carat weight.

    Colour buying tips

    To the untrained eye colour grades of diamonds are difficult to distinguish within one grade above or below unless diamonds are compared side-by-side in a controlled environment.  Even when side-by-side, changes in colour are difficult to detect in I colour and higher diamonds.

    Once a diamond is set into a ring and placed in an environment that contains colour (as opposed to the all-white background used in laboratory controlled colour grading) variations in colour become even harder to detect.   For example, an H colour diamond may look as colourless as a D when set in a ring under normal lighting conditions, especially if the two diamonds are not in comparison side by side.

    When shopping to a budget the best value for money in what would appear to the naked eye as a colourless diamond are G-J grade diamonds this is because colour is easier to detect in larger diamonds. Therefore choosing colour grade G-H for diamonds over 1 carat in weight, and I-J for those under 1 carat is the best option.  Once placed in a ring setting set in a ring, these diamonds will look just like higher colour grade diamonds. So rather than investing in higher colour, invest in a higher cut which will ensure that the very most is made of the diamond’s brilliance. As diamonds with more facets reflect more light, they tend to hide colour better than other shapes. So, consider round, princess or other modified brilliant cuts over step cuts such as emerald or asscher if you are concerned about colour.

    If your first consideration is about carat weight, and you are on a budget, then you would do well to consider a yellow gold setting and a brilliant cut diamond in the K-L colour range. The yellow gold will complement the faint body colour of the diamond.

    Another suggestion when looking for a diamond engagement ring with the ‘x factor’ on a budget is to would be to consider buying Colourless (D-F) fluorescent diamonds. These sell at a 5-15% discount to non-fluorescent diamonds since some people perceive fluorescence as a defect, but like anything beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this is only a matter of opinion.  In addition the fact is that the visible effects of faint to medium fluorescence are visible only to a gemologist using a special UV light source and not to the naked eye of anyone admiring your engagement ring.

    As the glow of fluorescence glow is usually blue (which is the complementary colour to yellow) fluorescence can make diamonds of I-M colour appear up to one grade whiter. For this reason, I-M diamonds tend to sell at a slight premium when they possess Medium to Very Strong fluorescence.

    Overall, fluorescence should not be a major factor in the diamond purchase since its effects on appearance are negligible, if not slightly positive. The exception would be to exercise caution in purchasing a diamond with strong or very strong fluorescence in D-H colour diamonds (which do not possess enough yellow colour to offset the blue fluorescence).

    Clarity buying tips

    If you are a perfectionist and really cannot tolerate imperfections, even those which you cannot see, then you will need to select a diamond in VVS2 or better - about 10% of all diamonds sold fall into this category.

    However for those on a budget, the most popular range is the VS1-VS2 diamond. These diamonds appear flawless to the naked eye, and are a fraction of the price of a truly flawless diamond. Almost half of all diamonds purchased fall into this range.

    The next most popular range is SI1, where the inclusions are usually not significant enough to impact the appearance of the diamond to the naked eye.  Many people will opt for this clarity range in exchange for a higher cut or colour grade. This combination often results in a beautiful, lively diamond with imperfections detectable only upon close inspection. In diamonds under 1 carat, the same can be said for an SI2 grade. In diamonds over one carat (where clarity is more important, and SI2 inclusions are often easier to detect), an SI2 is often half the price of a VS1 diamond. About one third of diamonds sold fall into the SI1-SI2 range.

    If your primary concerns are size and price, I1 may be your best clarity option. While the inclusions are visible to the unaided eye, you may well find the sacrifice for what it affords in size to be worthwhile.

    It always follows that the larger the diamond, the easier imperfections are to detect and it is her that Clarity really does become an important factor.  For diamonds over two carats, a clarity grade of VS2 or higher is a wise choice to help you avoid any signs of visible inclusions. In diamonds between one and two carats, clarity grades of SI1 or better will not have inclusions easily visible to the naked eye. In diamonds under one carat, clarity should be considered the least important of the traditional 4 Cs.

    Brilliant-cut diamonds (such as round, princess, cushion, oval, pear, and marquise) hide inclusions better than step cuts (emerald, asscher). When purchasing a step-cut, move up one clarity grade, for example choose a VS2 diamond instead of an SI1 if you desire the lowest grade that has no visible inclusions.

    Cut and Shape buying tips

    Cut and shape are two terms which are often confused by diamond buyers.  The cut of a diamond is the most important part of the equation when it comes to creating an engagement ring’s stunning sparkle as the quality of the cut determines the stone’s overall beauty and dazzle.  A diamond has to be cut to create its shape. But what’s referred to as the diamond’s cut isn’t the same as its shape, they are not the same but do complement each other.

    The diamond’s cut is one way of grading it.  How a diamond cutter cuts facets and angles on a diamond to let the light shine through is vitally important as it has a big impact on the beauty of your diamond in three important ways: proportion, symmetry and polish. These three factors interact with and against each other affecting the way light moves within the diamond.  It is akin to the sun hitting a mirror and reflecting onto another wall, except there are numerous little reflective surfaces and facets bouncing the light all over the inside of the diamond.

    In a well-cut diamond, light enters through the top, or table, and reflects off the angles between the flat places (the facets) on the sides (known as the crown and the pavilion) and exits back out the top. All that light bouncing around within the diamond creates the factors of brilliance, fire and sparkle:

    • Brilliance which is the brightness created by a combination of the white light reflections on and in the diamond.
    • Fire being the flashes of colour you see within the diamond.
    • Sparkle this happens when a diamond or a light source moves.

    These three factors are the reasons that a beautiful diamond catches really catches the eye and why it appears to have an inner glow.

    In a badly cut diamond, the light goes in the top, leaks out through the sides and ends up looking dull.  It may even be a bigger diamond by carat weight (and thus be more expensive), because not enough of the material was cut away to give you the sparkle everyone looks for in a diamond.

    The diamond shape is usually the first thing most people think about when choosing a diamond engagement ring and most women will have a preference. However, if you are unaware of her preference or a liking for a particular shape has been expressed, then consider a round diamond (known as a round brilliant) or square diamond (known as a princess) for the engagement ring. Generally speaking, the round diamond is more traditional and is generally the most popular cut of diamond chosen for engagement rings with the princess-cut running a very close second being a more modern shape for diamond engagement rings.  Both these cuts are known for their higher level of brilliance and sparkle than many other shapes; they accommodate almost any ring setting, and never go out of fashion.

    Length to width ratio has a major impact on the shape of a diamond. Every diamond that Rêve Diamonds sell is shown in its correct length to width ratio so that you can easily see the difference between diamonds of the same shape (e.g. a a square vs. a rectangular princess cut).  If you are not sure about your preferences, search for a shape you like, and then view diamonds of various length to width ratios within that shape until you find what you like. Then, focus your search on diamonds that are within roughly 10% of your ideal length to width ratio (e.g. if you decide that your ideal radiant cut diamond has a 1.50 L/W ratio, focus your search on radiants between 1.35 and 1.65).

    Other options are known as fancy shapes, and include diamond shapes like pear, marquise, cushion and heart. Depending on how these shapes are cut, all of them boast the dazzling sparkle you’re seeking for your chosen diamond engagement ring.

  • HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY WE GIVE AND WEAR DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RINGS? 

    CONGRATULATIONS TO PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ON THEIR ENGAGEMENT 

    Fantastic news this week that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have at last announced the news that the nation has been waiting for – they are officially engaged to be married!  The engagement ring is, as expected, absolutely stunning with Prince Harry thoughtfully choosing a trilogy design with a trio of diamonds. The ring sits on a gold band and the centre stone is from Botswana (where the couple recently holidayed together) and is flanked by two diamonds from the personal collection of Princess Diana, Prince Harry's mother. Prince Harry explained to the press at their official engagement announcement that this ring is ‘symbolic of life’s crazy journey that they are embarking upon together’.   

    Like many couples Prince Harry chose a diamond engagement ring to symbolise his commitment to his future wife.  But have you ever stopped and wondered why do we give and wear diamond engagement rings?   

    The origins of diamond engagement rings 

    There are several trains of thought as to the origins of the engagement ring. Some believe that engagement rings were a custom which begun in Ancient Egypt about 4,800 years ago! The Ancient Egyptians regarded a ring as the ultimate symbol of love and eternity and the central hole signified never ending and immortal love for the woman wearing the ring. They fashioned engagement rings and wedding bands from sedges, papyrus and reeds but as these materials wear away relatively quickly, they were often replaced with a ring made from other natural materials such as bone, ivory or leather or bone. The more expensive the material that the engagement ring was fashioned from signifying the wealth of the giver.  Archaeologists have found several mummies dating around 2800 BC that have been buried with silver and gold rings on the ring fingers of their left hand.   

    The more modern history of engagement rings began back in 1215 when Pope Innocent III established a waiting period between the promise of marriage, and the actual marriage ceremony and the giving of an engagement ring signified the couple's devotion to one another. During this period in history engagement rings would often represent the couple's social and economic position in society with only the very rich incorporating precious metals and jewels. Other less wealthy couples marked their engagement by the giving of an item. In England for example, a couple would break a piece of silver or gold and each of the couple kept one half, cementing the decision by having a glass of wine. Once married the item would be re-joined together to symbolise their joining together in marriage.  In America, some women were given thimbles. Once they got married the thimbles would have the top cut off so they could wear them as rings.  

    The word diamond is originated from ancient Greek translated to mean "unbreakable" - the perfect adjective when to describe the bond of love that marriage creates. At the time, diamonds were thought to be the strongest material on earth, which meant giving your other half a diamond as a symbol of your love and devotion was a truly romantic gesture. 

    The modern era of the diamond engagement ring 

    Our current lover affair with diamond engagement rings has been attributed to Archduke Maximilian of Austria who in  1477 proposed to Mary of Burgundy with a stunning diamond engagement ring comprised of thin, flat pieces of diamonds in the shape of an "M”. He blazed a fashion for diamond engagement rings amongst his contemporary European Aristocracy.  

    Diamond engagement rings did not become widely available though the jewellery industry until the 1870s when diamonds were discovered by miners in South Africa.  Diamonds then began to flood world markets, and people started to realise that they were relatively pretty common (which could have damaged their high price).  So in 1888 several major diamond mines formed together to create De Beers Consolidated Mines, Ltd which allowed them to control the flow of diamonds globally from South Africa. In turn this allowed them to make diamonds appear scarcer and therefore more valuable hence how a diamond became thought of as a rare, inherently valuable commodity.  

    The popularity of diamond engagement rings is all down to clever marketing. Once De Beers had increased the the price of diamonds, they faced a new challenge: the poor economy of the 1920s had led to a massive decline in diamond demand.  To ‘create’ demand De Beers hired an advertising agency N.W. Ayer to help them communicate just one message that would change the history of diamonds and make them an aspirational ‘must have’ item in the eyes of consumers. Frances Gerety, a copywriter working for N.W. Ayer, came up with the slogan: ‘A Diamond is Forever.’ Their marketing campaign focused upon portraying diamonds as a symbol of everlasting love, and made diamond engagement rings the ultimate way to show your commitment and it worked - diamond engagement rings are the number once choice of couples all over the world.

    Why do we wear an engagement ring on the ring finger of the left hand 

    This custom can be traced back to traditional beliefs held before the discovery of the human circulatory system worked. It was believed that a vein, known as the vena amoris or the ‘vein of love’, ran directly from the heart to the ring finger on the left hand. The special connection between the hand and the heart meant that wearing the engagement and wedding ring on this finger symbolically showed the love between the couple.  

    After the discovery of the circulatory system, medical experts realised that the scientific theory was incorrect because all fingers have a similar vein structure.  Married couples from the UK and many other Western countries wear their engagement and wedding rings on their left hand. However, couples from other European countries such as Austria, Denmark and Germany wear the rings on their right hand instead.  

  • WHAT ENGAGEMENT RING WILL LOOK BEST ON MY FINGER?

    Very much like choosing clothes to flatter your particular figure and accent your best assets,  it is vitally important that when choosing an engagement ring that you select the right shape and size to flatter your hand and finger shape, and this is an art in itself.   

    Undoubtedly certain styles and cuts of engagement ring will enhance the best features of your hand and fingers and draw attention away from those that you are less keen on.  To help you we have compiled a guide to assist with finding the perfect engagement ring to best enhance your hand's size and shape.  Don't go shopping without reading our guide!  

    First of all be objective 

    Before even looking at cuts, shapes and styles of diamond engagement rings you firstly need to objectively establish your hand shape, taking into account the width and length and width of your fingers as well as the overall size of your hand.  Also consider carefully if you generally keep your nails long or prefer trimmed short nails. The reason for this is that longer nails naturally have an elongating effect on the fingers.     

    Compare these factors against the shape and size of the main stone in the engagement ring and the width and style of the ring itself, and you will have a very good chance of finding the perfect engagement ring to flatter your hand.   

    When shopping for an engagement ring be sure to allow enough time to try lots of different ring styles on your ring finger as they can often look very different on the finger compared to in the display case. 

    Do not be afraid to ask for advice as purchasing an engagement ring is a significant investment both financially and emotionally, and hopefully this will be a once-in-a-lifetime purchase for you as a couple.  Here at Rêve Diamonds we have advised thousands of engaged couples on choosing the perfect engagement ring and have seen hands of all shapes and sizes so are very happy to suggest suitable styles.   

    Engagement rings for long fingers 

    If you are one of the lucky ones who has long fingers then you will be very pleased to hear that most styles work nicely on engagement rings for long fingers. You can go bold with dramatic designs if that suits your personality and style, or opt for a larger diamond which gives you the perfect excuse to splash out on a real eye popping engagement ring!  Princess and round-cut diamonds set onto a thicker band are particularly flattering on longer fingers as wider bands tend to complement length.  

    Engagement rings for short fingers 

    Short fingers look at their most elegant when the chosen engagement ring gives the appearance of elongating the finger no matter what the width of your fingers. Therefore look for stones with a longer shape such as oval, marquise or pear-cut stones.  A narrower band will also create an illusion of length as will keeping your nails on the longer side if at all possible alongside your lifestyle.  A pear cut with its rounded end and tapered point is universally flattering. It lengthens those who might be shorter in the finger and is a nice balanced shape for those with larger hands. Marquise-cut stones set vertically can also have an elongating effect on a hand as can rectangular emerald-shaped stones as long they are not so big they overwhelm. 

    Engagement rings for slim fingers 

    If you have slender fingers avoid swamping and overpowering them. Choose an engagement ring that has smaller stones set onto a thicker band which can help to make thin fingers appear wider. If your fingers are short but slender you could look for a narrow marquise, or pear cut diamond to elongate as well as widen the finger. 

    Engagement rings for wide fingers 

    It is important with wide fingers that the chosen engagement ring doesn’t make the fingers look even wider or show too much skin on either side of the ring.  Avoid narrow stones as they will reveal too much skin on either side of the ring will further exaggerate the width of your finger.  Choose larger round stones or cluster styles set onto a medium to thick band that will draw the eye in and have a slimming effect. Angular and asymmetrical shapes, like emerald-cut, wide oval, marquise or rectangular engagement rings will help to create the illusion of slimmer fingers. 

    Engagement rings for big knuckles 

    If you feel that you have big knuckles and really do not like them then choosing the right engagement ring will draw attention away from this feature.  Look at thicker, heavier bands which will draw the eye towards the ring instead of the middle of your finger. When choosing your engagement ring, always keep in mind the larger context, it is not just about your finger, but also your hand. 

    Engagement rings for small hands 

    If you have small hands keep the diamond in proportion to your hand size by choosing a smaller round, heart or princess-cut diamond.  Very delicate rings can look out of proportion on larger, longer hands, but smaller stones in any cut really flatter very small fingers.  Small round, princess-cut, oval or heart-shaped stones work especially well with small hands. 

    Engagement rings for big hands 

    For those with larger hands avoid at all costs small designs as they can look like you are wearing a toy ring!  Big, bold designs are perfect for you and don’t be afraid to consider flamboyant cocktail-ring styles as you will be able to carry these off in great style. Look for larger stones in a bezel setting as these are very flattering for fleshier hands and avoid very petite, thin bands. 

    Engagement rings for square hands and fingers 

    If your hand and fingers are square in shape, then the objective here is to soften the angular look by utilising feminine, flowing designs and gemstones with a more rounded cut. Avoid square shapes such as the princess cut and opt for round, oval or pear-cut stones. 

    Whether you are choosing an engagement  ring together with your partner,  or if you are browsing for ideas ahead of a proposal, this guide is simply intended to help you to identify the most flattering engagement ring designs for individual hand and finger shapes. There are no prescriptive rules that you have to follow and, if you have your heart set on a particular stone shape, use that as a starting point and look for the most flattering setting. 

  • HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU SPEND ON AN ENGAGEMENT RING?

    Getting engaged is one of life’s milestone events but knowing how much to spend on an engagement ring can also be one of the most frustrating decisions to have to make to ensure that you get your big moment just right.  Buying an engagement ring is a pretty significant investment, and you need to be 100% sure that the engagement ring that you choose for your loved one is within your means/affordable, and reflects the lifelong commitment and eternal love you hold for them.

    There is no set-in-stone amount that has to be spent on an engagement ring, but there are so many different rules and expectations when it comes to the cost of buying an engagement ring that it can be very confusing so we hope that we some pretty solid answers here to help you on your way to deciding how much to spend on an engagement ring:

    How much of my salary should I commit to buying an engagement ring with? 

    You may have heard the rule of thumb that one month’s salary should be spent on an engagement ring? This was started by the world famous mining and diamond jewellers De Beers when during the 1930s era of the American Great Depression they ran a marketing campaign suggesting that men spend one months’ salary on a diamond engagement ring, and since that time the idea has stuck.

    In the 1980s De Beers ran another advertising campaign suggesting that in modern times an engagement ring should cost two months’ salary, which later on then became three months’ salary, as the price of diamonds rose.  Thanks to this very inventive marketing campaign, De Beers have set the bar that the perfect engagement ring needs to cost at least a few months’ salary and this is almost now expected. However,  if three months wages seems a big stretch financially yet one month seems miserly,  perhaps pick a price point somewhere in the middle which is suitable for you. This could be a good option if you are looking to invest in an engagement ring that will be cherished but won’t potentially wreck your finances.

    Consider ways to make your money go further 

    There are some pretty savvy things you can do to make sure that make your money goes further and that you still get the best engagement ring that you can for the money you have allocated.

    Firstly familiarise yourself with what is referred to as the four C’s of diamonds: clarity, cut, colour and carat weight.

    In terms of clarity, the best diamonds are flawless, meaning that they don’t have any blemishes when viewed under a microscope. Consider opting for a diamond with a lower clarity grade that will cost less as many diamonds look exactly the same to the naked eye, unless you are a diamond expert with a magnifying glass in hand. Alternatively choose a lower carat diamond meaning that it weighs less, or one that isn’t completely colourless can also lower its overall price.

    Another idea to get the most bang for your bucks is to choose a style of engagement ring that gives the illusion of the diamond being larger and more brilliant than it actually. For example, choose an engagement ring with a round diamond halo setting accented with pavé diamonds. Within a halo setting even a smaller carat diamond can look fabulous giving the illusion of looking a lot bigger as the brilliant accent stones add a sparkling unbroken expanse of light so adding to the ‘wow’ factor.

    Why not consider shopping online from retailers such as Rêve Diamonds who offer great deals, have an excellent reputation for top quality jewellery, are widely trusted and offer fully certificate diamond rings.

  • TOP TIPS TO HELP YOU CARE FOR YOUR JEWELLERY 

    If you care and treat your precious jewellery well it will bring you pleasure for many years to come.  We recommend that you have your jewellery professionally cleaned and inspected at least once a year but are also some simple things that you can do at home to help your precious jewellery look its very best for even longer.  Here ae our top tips for caring for your jewellery:  

    1. Always store pieces of jewellery separately 

    Different gemstones have different hardness and can easily scratch or knock each other if stored together so think about how you store items of jewellery.    

    Keeping your pieces of jewellery in separate soft-lined compartments is the ideal method of storage so try to keep the boxes and packaging that it came in as this is the easiest and often the best way to protect your jewellery from dust and damage.  This will not prevent silver from oxidising, so possibly consider storing items in airtight bags to minimise this, while silica gel packs will absorb moisture and sulphur in the air that can cause jewellery to lose its shine. All Jewellery should always be stored away from direct sunlight, damp, and extremes of heat or cold. 

    Wrap gold, silver, precious and semi-precious items in acid-free tissue or cotton to keep them away from dust and moisture. Take extra care with pearls, which are soft and vulnerable to scratches and other damage. Always ensure that any fastenings are closed so items do not tangle or catch each other. 

    1. Wear with care 

    When getting dressed always put your jewellery on last so that your clothes do not catch on it. Apply makeup and hairspray first so that these do not contaminate your jewels, making sure to let everything dry before adding the finishing touches. When your hair is being styled, remove earrings so that they are not caught on combs or brushes and avoid pearl earrings or necklaces if you are having hair coloured, as the chemicals can cause discolouration; remove rings and bangles when having your nails manicured. 

    Be especially careful to remove jewellery before doing any manual work, including housework, as it can be damaged by knocks and household cleaners. Diamond rings in particular may be chipped by a hard blow. 

    1. Beware contamination 

    Some chemical agents and even water can cause discoloration and tarnishing of jewellery. Soap, cosmetics, cooking grease, and natural skin oils can dull any jewellery and should also be avoided. If your jewellery does come into contact with water, or any chemicals, use a dry soft tissue or towel to gently pat them dry.  Household cleaners, chemicals in makeup, hair products and perfumes can all tarnish or damage jewellery. 

    When handling diamonds, other gemstones and pearls touch them with your fingers as little as possible, as this will avoid the natural oils from your skin dulling and damaging them.  In addition, water can damage the threading or setting of jewellery; so avoid getting threaded pearls or beaded jewellery wet, and never wet antique items without getting specialist advice first.  

    1. Gentle cleaning 

    We highly recommend that you occasionally gently clean your jewellery to remove any oils, dust or contamination.  If you are not sure how fragile a piece is, always err on the side of caution and use simple, non-abrasive materials like soap and water, with a soft toothbrush. 

    Be careful not to rub or to over-handle your jewellery. Silver-dip type cleaners should only be used to clean silver jewellery, which must be rinsed and dried thoroughly afterwards. Gold, platinum and gemstone jewellery can be cleaned using specialist jewellery cleaners, as appropriate. 

    1. Make sure that  your jewellery is insured 

    The future cannot be predicted and no matter how well you care for your jewellery like any item it can be liable to damage, theft or accidental loss.  Ensuring that your jewellery is insured not only protects you from the financial repercussions of having to replace or repair that beautiful diamond engagement ring, it gives you peace of mind.   

    1. Visit a professional jeweller at least once a year 

    If in doubt, seek professional advice rather than experimenting. We offer an expert jewellery cleaning service, and suggest that you bring your jewellery to us at least once a year as some pieces of jewellery can be especially delicate or require a specialist’s touch.  We believe that all jewellery benefits from being cleaned and inspected professionally; dirt, marks, blemishes or scratches acquired through age or everyday wear can easily be removed to return a treasured piece to its former glory. It also gives us the chance to check your precious jewellery for any damage that you may not have noticed.
