Tennis, Anyone?

Diamond Tennis BraceletA classic tennis bracelet, once called an eternity bracelet, is an in-line bracelet with a pattern of symmetrical and individually set diamonds with the clasp. Although the tennis bracelet was not designed to be a fashion accessory for match play, it was the game of tennis that gave the bracelet its name. The name ” tennis bracelet” came about after an incident at the 1987 U.S. Tennis Championships involving tennis champ Chris Evert. She was wearing an expensive diamond bracelet while playing one of her matches, and the clasp broke. The diamond bracelet slipped off her wrist. She requested to stop the match in order to find the bracelet. Since then that bracelet became known as a diamond tennis bracelet. The incident led the way to a whole new trend in diamond tennis bracelets. Other players like Serena Williams and Gabriela Sabatini are among those who were seen wearing expensive diamond bracelets in years that followed. The incident also influenced manufacturers to include a safety chain along with the clasp, which made it more secure.

Modern tennis bracelets come in a variety of gemstones color, sizes, and designs appropriate for every occasion from every day to formal wear – and even sportswear. Over the years, the bracelets have become an elegant fashion statement and make great gifts for anniversaries, graduations, birthdays or any special occasion. Tennis bracelets are typically lightweight and flexible, making them less likely to be damaged during any activities.

Please, check our website for the variety of the tennis bracelets that we offer. We can create any custom design as well if you would like to request a custom jewelry quote.

Moissanite Solitaire Engagement Rings

Moissanite has only grown in popularity since we first introduced it to the deBebians website. We carry both Forever Brilliant ® and Forever One from Charles & Colvard. You may see which options are available for your desired engagement ring setting by clicking on the “center stone” drop down menu. If you have questions or if you’d like to inquire about a different shape or size moissanite, please contact a deBebians jewelry expert at your convenience or fill out the “customize it” tab on the product page. Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite solitaire engagement ring settings that are available with a moissanite center stone.

1. Infinity Style Solitaire Engagement Ring

Forever One Solitaire Engagement Rings

Style # SE-22

This engagement ring has a width of 4mm and may be purchased in 14 kt gold, 18 kt gold, palladium, or platinum. We offer your choice of a round brilliant cut 6.5mm Forever One or a 6.5mm Forever Brilliant ® moissanite center stone.

A 6.5mm moissanite is equivalent to the size of a 1.00 carat diamond.

2. Solitaire Hand-Engraved Engagement Ring

Forever Brilliant Solitaire Engagement Rings

You may choose between a round brilliant cut Forever One measuring 6.5mm or a round brilliant Forever Brilliant ® measuring 6.5mm.

Pear Shape Jewelry from deBebians

Pear shape jewelry is quite popular these days.  Here at deBebians, we sell pear shape engagement rings, pear shape morganite rings and other styles of pear shape jewelry.  Today I want to talk more about pear shape jewelry vs actual pear shape diamond engagement rings.  A very important thing to remember when shopping for pear shape jewelry is that the length to width ratio is critical to the overall look and feel.  If the overall shape of the pear is off, so will be the design of the piece.  You can see in the photos below that we select the proper proportions when hand picking our pear shape gemstones.

These are a few of my particular favorites that we sell here at deBebians.

  1. Sapphire Pear Double Halo Necklace
    Pear Gemstone Necklace

    Style # PDH-01

    This beautiful diamond double halo sapphire pear shape drop necklace is a one-of-a-kind piece.  The center pear sapphire weighs 1.00ct and is AA quality.  The center stone is surrounded by approximately 0.45cttw white diamonds pave set into a double halo mounting.  If you are searching for something larger or smaller, or perhaps this same style but with a different center gemstone, please let us know.

  2. Morganite Pear Drop EarringsPear Gemstone EarringsThese morganite pear shape diamond halo drop earrings are gorgeous. With these earrings, you get 3.00cttw pear morganites and 0.50cttw white diamonds.  Perhaps these aren’t an ‘every day piece,’ but you can wear them out on the town for that special event!
  3. Tanzanite Pear Drop Halo Necklace
    Pear Gemstone and Diamond Necklace

    Style # PDDN-03

    I absolutely love tanzanite. It’s probably my favorite gemstone!  This is a similar style design to the morganite drop earrings above but as a drop necklace.  The center pear shape tanzanite here is 4.00ct and is surrounded by 0.50cttw white diamonds.  With tanzanite being a softer gemstone, it will be totally safe to wear in a necklace.  Love this piece!

With pear shape jewelry becoming increasingly popular, know that deBebians has you covered.  If you do not see what you have in mind or if you would like to customize a piece, please let us know!  Happy shopping!

Flush Set Engagement Rings

What is a flush set engagement ring?  A flush set engagement ring is an engagement ring that a wedding band can sit flush or next to the engagement ring without any gaps.

deBebians Engagement RingsOne of our most popular diamond accented engagement rings is style number HE255, which is our Diamond Accented Diamond Engagement Ring.  This particular ring is very popular in style “B,” which has accent diamonds on the under halo or bezel.  If you look at this ring very closely you will see the prongs sticks out from the band, which will make a wedding band push out from the ring and not sit flush.  In my professional opinion I don’t like changing the design of the engagement ring so a wedding band can sit flush but, I understand it bothers some clients and that why I can manufacture almost any engagement ring into a flush set engagement ring.

Engagement Rings

In the picture above I designed style number HE255, our Diamond Accented Diamond Engagement Ring, as a flush set engagement ring.  As you can see from the CAD rendering, I tucked in the legs so a wedding band can sit flush next to the engagement ring.

Radiant Engagement Ring

As you can see from the pictures above, we started out with style number HE286,which has a beautiful diamond encrusted basket. I modified it to a flush set engagement ring with a diamond encrusted basket.  Now, this particular customer can wear a wedding band flush next to her engagement ring and she will not see a gap between her engagement ring and wedding band.

At the end of the day the ring is on the clients finger and I will do everything I can without compromising the integrity of the rings I design to make my clients dream a reality.

Proper Research & Buying Certified Loose Diamonds

deBebians diamonds

A deBebians jewelry expert shows off an assortment of GIA certified diamonds. Photo Source: deBebians

Recently, I was assisting a customer with a GIA certified loose diamond search and it really got me thinking.  She had done a lot of research online and had read all types of things about what to look for in your perfect diamond.  After chatting with her, I realized she was pretty much only concerned about getting an excellent cut grade round brilliant diamond with excellent polish & excellent symmetry. This type of diamond is often referred to as ‘triple X’ or ‘triple excellent’.  I also realized she had read so much online that she was scared about clarity and was only considering VS1 or higher clarity diamonds.  She was convinced that any round diamond less than VS1 clarity would definitely have eye visible inclusions.  Believe me, I am all for helping each customer get exactly what they want (or what they think they want).  However, as a GIA graduate gemologist and someone who has been in the business for 16 years, I sometimes find it interesting (or disheartening) what my clients read and learn about online.  You have to remember that there is a lot of misinformation out there and that you should consult an actual gemologist or diamond expert when you are looking to make a loose diamond purchase.  Even consult with more than one to get multiple professional opinions. I have noticed that some ‘expert’ advice you find online is from people who have perhaps done some research on their own, purchased a diamond and now feel they are qualified to give ‘expert’ advice.  My advice is to pay attention to these ‘experts’ and take everything they say with a grain of salt.  You may find some very good information out there from non-gemologists, but you may also come across some information that isn’t accurate.  Do your research and talk to some real experts before making such a large purchase.

Blake Lively Inspired Engagement Rings

As a jewelry designer, I really enjoy manufacturing engagement rings.  Blake Lively’s engagement ring is a ring that comes across my desk all the time.  I always tell my customers if they want an engagement ring exactly like Blake Lively’s engagement ring, they should get it from the designer who designed her ring.  But, I am always willing to use a ring as inspiration and make it even better than the original design. I have realized that clients today really know what they want and I make sure I can design the ring and manufacture the piece.  I always give my clients my professional opinion.  If I feel the custom design aspects in a ring is not pretty I always tell them.

Blake Lively Inspired Rings

The picture above is inspired by Blake Lively’s engagement ring.  As you can see in the picture, this particular ring has a cushion cut center stone. However, it can be manufactured for any shape or size center stone.  This particular ring was designed with diamonds going up the legs of the ring and on the basket.  I wanted to make this ring with as little metal showing as possible.

Blake Lively Inspired Engagement RingsI know Blake Lively’s engagement ring doesn’t have a halo but, halo engagement rings are very popular and I thought it would be nice to design a shank (ring portion) like Blake Lively’s ring and add a halo.  This particular halo is not your regular single halo engagement ring.  This halo has a beautiful two row curve.  The curve on the halo compliments the shank in my opinion.

As you can see, we can design anything your heart desires.  I can make your dreams into a reality.  If you would like a custom engagement ring quote please request one by filling our our custom ring request form.  I will be more than happy to help you design the most beautiful custom Blake Lively inspired engagement ring.

Celebrating a wedding anniversary with fine jewelry is a tradition for many couples. deBebians specializes in many different types of jewelry that is appropriate for a wedding anniversary, including five stone diamond rings, diamond eternity bands, and diamond stud earrings. One of my favorite gift ideas is a diamond necklace. A necklace can be dressed up or dressed down and may be worn alone or layered with other necklaces to create a distinctive look. Below are three recently purchased diamond necklaces that will make any wedding anniversary unforgettable.

1. Rose Gold Heart Diamond Halo Pendant

Heart Diamond NecklacesOur heart diamond pendant is shown here in 14 karat rose gold. It was set with a GIA certified 0.71 carat heart shaped diamond that had F color with VS2 clarity. This necklace is also available in 14 karat yellow and white gold and may be set with any heart shaped diamond that weighs between 0.30 carat and 2.00 carat. The necklace features approximately 0.20 cttw of pave set diamonds and is completed with decorative hand engraving.

2. Custom Oval Halo Diamond Pendant

Custom Diamond NecklacesWe custom designed and manufactured this antique-inspired diamond necklace. The east-west set oval was EGL certified and features F color with SI1 clarity and weighed 0.51 ct. The necklace was designed with a diamond halo that featured 0.17 cttw of u-pave set diamonds. The rim of the bezel, which securely holds the center diamond in place, was completed with milgrain detail. Please contact a deBebians jewelry expert at your convenience if you would like to design a bespoke diamond necklace.

3. Diamond Riviera Necklace

Graduated Diamond ChokerFor an absolute work of art, we have a diamond riviera necklace. The total carat weight in this piece is approximately 10.00 cttw with the diamonds having G color with SI clarity.

Men’s Wedding Bands

Now that the female finger is all blinged up, it is time to choose a men’s wedding band for the groom to wear after the vow exchange. It is the undervalued cousin of the bride’s gorgeous engagement ring and usually the last thing the groom thinks about. Many men assume it will be easy to find a wedding band quickly. But, the groom should really think long and hard about what wedding band he will put on his finger, since it most likely will be the only piece of jewelry that men will wear for years to come. To help you in your quest for a unique men’s wedding band, we can offer you to explore the different wedding band materials, styles and designs available on our website and give you stunning men’s wedding band inspiration to help you narrow down your selection. Another important thing is figuring out correct finger size, since most men don’t ever wear rings prior to getting married, they all tend to feel “ claustrophobic” with the band hugging their finger. Therefore, they choose a larger size, which leads to losing it soon after the wedding. Believe it or not, the majority of the wedding bands lost are on the honeymoon trips. Most of our bands are made with the comfort fit inside, which makes a band sit snug on your finger but at the same time is very comfortable to wear.

Here are some of my favorite men’s wedding bands:

Hammered White Gold Ring

Hammered White Gold RingThis handmade band is offered in 14K white, yellow or two tone gold, and is proudly made here in the United States. The hammered finish gives it a very masculine rugged flair , that is very popular among the young men nowadays. It is offered in a 6 mm width, but it can be customized to feature a different width as well.

Traditional Rose Gold Wedding Band

Traditional Wedding Band in 14k 5mmIf you think rose gold is only appropriate for women, think again. Thanks, especially to adventurous celebrities this year, combining rose gold with different metals or just plain rose gold has become a very popular trend in men’s jewelry world. We can customize the width and finish for you as well. My most favorite design for a rose gold men’s band is having it brushed to give it an “aged and passed on through the generations” look.

Titanium Wedding Band

6mm Titanium Wedding Ring Step Edge Brushed FinishInexpensive, light weight, durable titanium is a great alternative to a precious metal wedding bands. The grayish, gunmetal color of it looks very attractive on a man’s hand. Aircraft grade titanium does not change color over time, is resistant to corrosion, and is hypoallergenic as well.

We can customize most of our men’s wedding band designs to what you have in mind. Give us a call and a member of our knowledgeable team at deBebians will be happy to assist you with any questions or requests.
