We came up with a really cool topic this week other than gold jewelry, silver chains or diamond cut earrings. It seemed like a fun topic to talk about overall why women like fashion in general so much. After a lot of thinking past the obvious that it’s just fun to shop online or in stores, something else came to mind. When you think about the fashion industry that includes clothes, models, acsessories and of course jewelry, what else do you think about? Think for a moment about all the excitement and work that is put into items and people looking beautiful by designers and stylists all over the world. The energy alone that is this world exudes is enough to get anyone excited.

Gold Earrings

If you have ever been to a fashion photo shoot that includes models, photographers, makeup, hair and stylists you will realize how it all begins. Look at the magazines on all the racks in the food stores. It’s almost ironic, because here we are reading these magazines leaning on our wagons full of food like potato chips. In the meantime, so many people aspire to be like the people in the magazine that probably are on such strict diets just to give us something unique to look at. Of course most of this is not a realistic look in the real world or way to live, but they do entertain most of us for sure. Anyway, it’s always fun to wear pieces of beautiful gold jewelry such as sideways crosses, infinity necklaces along with beautiful clothes and accessories.

The 4 C’s of Diamonds

The subject of Diamonds is very broad, a diamond’s cost is based on the characteristics known as the “4 C’s” (carat, color, clarity and cut). These are the industry standards utilized by many jewelers around the world. While clarity is frequently assumed to be the most important factor of all the “C’s”, in fact, color and cut (especially cut) have a more profound affect on the visual appearance of a diamond.

Carat:  Translates into the actual size of a diamond. Just like how a dollar is made up of 100 pennies, a one carat diamond contains 100 points, ¾ carat contains 75 points, etc.

The word “carat” comes from the seed of the carob tree pod which is found in tropical climates. These seeds were used until this century to weigh precious gems.

Color: The color of diamonds can range a great deal, the most common range is known as white to a yellow color. Increasing degrees of body color are measured on a scale ranging from no color at all (D) to deeply colored (Z).  The most common range is between D-J.

Clarity: The clarity grade of a diamond refers to the amount of inclusions in a diamond, which are the natural flaws that are in a diamond. Clarity is measured on a scale ranging from pure (flawless) to heavily included (I-3). The final clarity grade is usually determined by how easy the inclusions and blemishes are for the grader to see.

Cut:   Most people refer to this as the shape, but it also explains the proportions of a diamond. Sometimes the forgotten “C”, ensures that a given stone has maximum brilliance and sparkle which would not be the case if the stone was cut for weight alone.
