Avoid Getting Coal in Your Stocking This Holiday Season

How can you avoid getting coal in your stocking this year? I know! Shop with deBebians.com for all your jewelry needs for that special someone on your list and you’ll be good to go!

Holiday gift shopping for jewelry is easier than ever when you shop at deBebians.com. No matter what type of jewelry you are looking for this holiday season, we have it! Diamond studs, diamond necklaces, diamond bracelets, gemstone earrings, signet rings, morganite jewelry… we have you covered.

Here a few of my top picks for this Holiday Season!

1. 14k Diamond Stud Earrings

diamond studs

Style # ERS9014

Diamond studs should be a part of every woman’s wardrobe. I chose our 0.90cttw option because they are very close to 1.00cttw, but they are priced lower. Currently our 0.90cttw H-I, SI studs are priced at $1989 while the 1.00cttw option (same color and clarity) is priced at $2363. Price-wise you notice a difference, but you really won’t in terms of overall size.

2. Floating Diamond Solitaire Pendant Necklace

Diamond Pendant

Style # DSPR20SI-4

A diamond solitaire pendant is a classic piece that can be worn with everything! You can truly dress this up or down. Personally, I think the 0.50ct or 0.75ct option is just perfect. Grab this and put it under the tree for Christmas morning.

3. Morganite Stud Earrings

Rose Gold Earrings

Style # MSE-01

I feel like you see morganite and rose gold everywhere which means that the special lady on your list has seen it too! These morganite studs are 6.5mm each (similar to the size of a 1.00ct round diamond). Set these in rose gold and the peachy pink color comes to life.

You will not get coal in your stocking if you pamper your loved ones with jewelry from deBebians. We look forward to assisting you this year for all your holiday fine jewelry needs.

Tips for International Customers

debebiansAt deBebians, we do our best to work with customers living both here and abroad. We understand that there are Americans living overseas (for example, in the military). There are also international buyers that are looking to purchase an engagement ring, but it is too costly or impossible for them to find in their own country. Whether you live in the UK, Australia, or Afghanistan, the deBebians staff will always do our best to assist you in any way we can. Below is the basic information for anyone who is considering purchasing jewelry from us while living abroad.

1. All international customers must pay with a bank wire transfer. A bank wire transfer allows us to ship to any receiving address as we understand some locations are too difficult or remote to deliver to, for example an APO address. APO addresses requires the shipment to go through the post office which can take a long transit time. FedEx is our preferred method of transit. Paying via a bank wire also allows you to ship the package to a family member or friend if you are unable to receive the package. All purchases with a bank wire transfer will receive an additional 1.5% discount towards their order. deBebians does not accept international credit cards.

2. There is no complimentary shipping on international shipments. We charge $65 for FedEx International priority shipping or $45 for FedEx Priority Shipping to Canada. This is something that needs to be factored into the budget when selecting an item from us. For items that ship via Postal Service Priority Mail, there will be a shipping fee of $15.

3. There is no US sales tax on international purchases. However, there are import duty and taxes when the package enters its final destination. Every country has a different import tax, but this is very important to know before making a purchase. Import taxes need to be paid prior to pick up. International duty and taxes can be as high as 20%, so it is very important to look into this before making a purchase! If you are unaware of how to find out what your country’s tax might be, please contact your local tax authority.

Please review our shipping policies before placing your order. We look forward to assisting you and helping you through the process!

Solo Wedding for Singles?

I saw an article posted about this the other day where there is a special tour trip that this travel agency in Japan has where single women can plan their own solo “wedding” experience as a treat for themselves.  It was interesting and sweet and reaction to it has been mixed.

The trip is a two day trip where basically you go out to the travel agency’s office in Kyoto and talk to them about the kind of wedding you want.  You get to choose the type of gown and accessories you’d like to wear, the wedding style, flowers, and so on.  You don’t even *have* to and reportedly this is an option that no woman who’s taken the tour has done, but they can have a male model there posing as a groom for you as well.  You’re not actually getting married or anything and you just get to pose in the pretty gown and get dolled up like a bride does on her actual wedding day and then a photographer takes pictures of you much like how a wedding photographer would capture sweet moments the day of an actual wedding.

For people who have a loving relationship or even are cynical, this might seem like an incredibly strange idea for a vacation package.  Some comments have been along the lines of saying that it’s for women who “give up on love” or that the women who participate are “lonely” among other things, but it actually doesn’t seem to be true.  Weddings themselves have mostly in practice been about the bride and her big day and her dream wedding.  The groom does sometimes take more of an interest in the planning as a more recent trend, but most wedding planning sites are for sure geared more toward the bride’s dream wedding day.  For some women though, they are single by choice because they’re busy and have careers or maybe they’re not single, but have a complicated relationship and don’t want to pressure their significant other into an extravagant ceremony that is costly.  Perhaps if they decide to tie the not, for practicality they would just do a civil ceremony, so the bride would miss out on the traditional pampering of a wedding ceremony.  A trip like this is a great way to give them the experience of feeling that kind of “special” treatment when reality otherwise wouldn’t allow them to have it.

Marriage is also a commitment and significant part of a relationship, but the fancy dress, scenic setting, photos, etc. that are part of a wedding aren’t indicative of the quality of the relationship, so something like this can be a nice treat for someone who doesn’t yet have that quality partner or just has no time to find one.

For me personally, I thought it was a little strange at first, but also really intriguing as an alternative business venture for companies that specialize in parts of wedding planning.  Realistically, why can’t single ladies just treat themselves?  Sometimes the complexities of real life get in the way and we have to make tough choices, so if you can have a special day without burdening your significant other why not go for it?

This particular tour offers accessories and jewelry that you can borrow for your special tour package photo shoot, but if we’re talking a way to treat yourself, why wait for a guy to give you a ring?  There are plenty of designs out there for him to pick a special one that is meaningful to the both of you as a couple if you meet Mr. Right, but part of a healthy relationship is also a certain amount of self-love and self-appreciation so if you’re treating yourself to a little dream trip like this, why not spring for a nice sparkly memento as well?

For whatever your jewelry needs though, deBebians has a wide range of fine jewelry options and really, sometimes it’s nice just to treat yourself and not wait for a loved one to get it for you.

Solange Marries in New Orleans

A photo posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson tied the knot this weekend. The wedding took place Sunday at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans. The wedding weekend started off on Friday with an exclusive screening of Mahogany, which is a 1975 film that stars the great Diana Ross. Solange and Ferguson watched this movie on their first date, which adds a lovely personal touch to the weekend.

The bride’s sister, Beyonce, shared a photo of the happy couple all dressed in white. In another artistic photo, the singer shared a photo of the entire Knowles family also all dressed in white for the celebration.

This is the second wedding for Knowles, who is a model, singer, and songwriter. Knowles, 28, was previously married to Daniel Smith from 2004 until 2007. Ferguson, 51, is a music video director who has directed videos for the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado, Jay-Z, and others.

Solange wore a floor-length gown by Humberto Leon, which included an attached cape and gold wrist cuff accessories. With her bold sense of style and strong personality, I can’t wait to see what the bride and groom have chosen for their wedding bands.

New Pink Sapphire Accented Engagement Rings

Due to popular demand, we recently added a few pink sapphire accented engagement rings as a more affordable alternative to our fancy pink diamond accented engagement rings. Pink sapphires, a durable and beautiful gemstone, show a stronger pink color than fancy pink diamonds and also cost thousands of dollars less.

We offer two styles in a two-tone metal combination of rose gold and the white metal of your choice (white gold, palladium or platinum) and one style with an all-one-metal-color design. These new Bel Dia Collection styles also feature pave set white accenting diamonds.
pink-sapphire-halo-engagement-ring-for-cushion-diamond-3
These designs offer a taste of what is possible with our ability to customize just about anything when it comes to our engagement ring designs. We can customize any design for you or create an entirely new design utilizing a variety of metal types, diamonds and/or gemstones. Sometimes clients even ask us to match a particular pink color with our pink sapphires, such as “bubble gum pink” or “dark pink,” which is another way to make it your own.
pink-sapphire-two-tone-pear-double-halo-engagement-ring-3
Incorporating pink sapphires into an engagement ring adds another special layer of meaning, as pink sapphires represent love, forgiveness, passion and romance. The pink color is also associated with October birthstones and anniversaries.
pink-sapphire-cushion-halo-engagement-ring-3
Our pink sapphires are diamond cut, AAA quality, and “eye clean,” meaning there are no inclusions visible to the naked eye. Pink sapphires measure 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, one notch below diamond, and are akin to rubies. The only difference between a pink sapphire and a ruby is the color saturation, as both are varieties of the mineral corundum. The varying shades of red is caused by the presence of the element chromium.

Please click on any ring above to be taken directly to the product page. Also, as of this posting, we’re offering an extra 10% off all of our engagement rings. Use coupon code “save10″ during checkout to claim your discount. Sale ends Nov. 24, 2014.
