Consider a Signet Ring in Lieu of a College or High School Ring

Recently I have spoken with a lot of soon-to-be college graduates who are purchasing signet rings instead of college rings.  To me, this is a great idea!  I have both a college ring and a high school ring which sit in my jewelry box and I never wear them.  I’ll probably eventually end of scraping them.  I wish I had had the idea to get a signet ring instead of a college or high school ring.  I know if I had thought of it, I would still be wearing the signet ring off and on and it wouldn’t be sitting in my jewelry box.  Perhaps it would even be something I could pass down to my daughter.

A signet ring is a classic ring that can be personalized with initials, dates, sayings etc.  Here are a few of my favorite signet rings that could serve instead as a high school or college ring.

  1. Large Oval Center Signet Rings For Women
    Large Oval Center Signet Rings For WomenSRRS141 is a ladies signet ring with a solid back measuring about 12.5 x 11.2mm.  I prefer slightly larger pieces of jewelry so this would be my preference.  Personally, I also prefer a slightly rounded or oval look, which this one is!
  2. Gold Monogram Engraved Signet Ring
    Gold Monogram Engraved Signet RingStyle SRRS251 features an oval face that spans across the finger.  This too features a solid back (my preference) and is perhaps a bit more unique than the traditional round or oval face.  You could engrave your initials on the face and your graduation date on the inside to make it even more personal.

If you are considering purchasing a college or high school ring, be sure to consider a signet ring.  A signet ring can be worn and enjoyed for years to come.  You can personalize it with initials, a graduation date or graduation year.  It will be a special keepsake and a reminder of your time in college or high school.  If you need assistance with a signet ring, do not hesitate to call on us!

Garnet Gemstone Information

Garnet is a birthstone for the month of January. Its name originates from Latin word “Granatus,” which means grain or seed, and the gem was called so because of the gemstone’s resemblance to a pomegranate seed. Its reference dates back to 3100 B.C., when the Egyptians used this gem as an inlay in various jewelry. It was believed that the red garnets promote sincerity and relieve anger, promote and preserve health, as well as bring honor and protect in traveling. The family of this gemstone is one of the most exciting families in the gem world, best known for their blood red color. First ever mined in Sri Lanka, this stone is also found in Africa, Australia, India, Russia, South America and the United States.

Hard, durable, often very brilliant, this gem offers a great versatility. It scores 6.5-7.5  on Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Although, most commonly known for its red color, it comes in a variety of other hues, including muted yellows, vibrant oranges, rosy pinks, lime greens, and violet. This gemstone occasionally displays asterism in the form of four-rayed stars. However, star garnets are very rare and generally opaque stones.

Gifting a piece of garnet jewelry is thought to be the symbol of love and the desire for the loved one’s safe travel. Garnets are quite popularly used in the engagement rings, earrings, pendants, and bands due to the vivid color and versatility. I would recommend to concentrate on the quality and not the size of the gem when shopping for garnets. Also, pay attention to the clarity–they should be eye clean. A stone that has many inclusions will look cloudy.

Here are some of my favorite garnet pieces that we sell on our website:

Pink Sapphire Accented Engagement Rings

deBebians designs and manufactures a wide variety of engagement rings, including those that feature gemstones and gemstone accents. We also carry engagement rings that feature fancy colored diamonds, including fancy pink diamonds. However, fancy pink diamonds are incredibly rare and are thus incredibly valuable. However, pink sapphire accents offer a similar look for much less. I wanted to share our pink sapphire accented engagement rings to highlight their uniqueness and beauty.

Sapphire Accented Engagement Ring Designs

Like so many, I also love the combination of blue sapphires and white diamonds.  There is just something about the rich blue color of a sapphire that goes perfectly alongside the sparkle of a white diamond.  This got me thinking about our blue sapphire accented diamond engagement rings.  We offer many styles that feature this beautiful combination.  Today I want to share a few of my personal favorites!

  1. Diamond Three Stone Halo Engagement Ring with Sapphire Accents
    diamond-three-stone-halo-engagement-ring-with-sapphire-accentsThis three stone sapphire accented diamond engagement ring setting is just gorgeous.  You can choose your own center round diamond or moissanite for this engagement ring.  The rich blue color really stands out alongside all the white diamonds.  This is a class three stone halo setting that will always be in style.
  2. Three Stone Engagement Ring with Sapphires
    three-stone-engagement-ring-with-sapphiresIf a halo ring isn’t your style, perhaps a classic three stone sapphire accented ring is! In this particular ring, each blue sapphire is 0.50ct each and is AAA quality.  Please note that if you have a larger center stone, we can always adjust the size of the accent sapphires.  You would just need to call and speak with one of our designers for a quote.  This is a classic beauty!
  3. Halo Engagement Ring with Sapphires
    halo-engagement-ring-with-sapphiresI chose this sapphire accented engagement ring because we recently made it for someone very special to me, and because it’s lovely. This particular bezel set round ring features round blue sapphires surrounding the center diamond.  To me, this is an antique inspired design without being too estate-like.

If you love blue sapphires, be sure to consider adding them as an accent to your engagement ring.  I know many who have done this and their rings are incredible.  What do you think about these settings?  Would you consider adding something blue to your engagement ring?  Be sure to contact us if you have any questions or need a custom quote.  Happy shopping!

Custom Diamond Eternity Rings & Bands

I love designing and manufacturing custom diamond eternity rings and bands.  Clients who call and speak to me always tell me I have the passion to manufacture custom rings.  I always think outside the box and try to come up with the most beautiful design possible.  Below you will see a few custom eternity bands I have designed.

Micro Pave’ Diamond Eternity Ring

 This eternity ring is what I would call a halo eternity ring.  A halo is a ring of diamonds surrounding a center stone.  As you can see in the picture, I designed this ring with very small diamonds surrounding the larger diamonds.  This particular ring has over 100 round brilliant cut micro pave diamonds.  The diamonds on the halo need to complement the center stone and not take away.  I see a lot of jewelry manufactured with the wrong size diamonds that can ruin a piece.

2016-09-28-11-47-53-c 2016-09-28-11-48-43-c

The ring pictured above is another custom diamond eternity ring that was designed and manufactured by me.  The main difference between the ring above and the ring above that is obviously the center stone is a princess cut versus a round but, it is also set in a very fine bezel.

 Cost Effective Custom Eternity Rings

 A lot of people think making a custom designed diamond eternity ring will cost a lot more.  As you can see on our website, we manufacture many different diamond eternity rings.  The picture above is a rose gold ring with aquamarines.  Even though we may call this ring a custom eternity ring, it won’t be that expensive to manufacture because we already have this mold for our diamond version and therefore it can be manufactured for any stone and any metal.  There is no reason to not contact us for a free quote.  It’s totally free so why not? 🙂 I would love to hear from you on your next custom diamond eternity ring or band order.  I love speaking on the phone or you can email me.  Together we can come up with a custom designed eternity ring that will knock your socks off!
