Moissanite Stud Earrings

We are proud to introduce a new line of Charles & Colvard moissanite stud earrings featuring Forever One™.  When you think of stud earrings, you typically only think of round brilliant stud earrings.  However, we didn’t stop at round moissanite studs.  We also introduced princess cut moissanite studs and cushion cut moissanite studs in a variety of sizes.

Round Moissanite Stud Earrings

We offer these beautiful Charles & Colvard round moissanite earrings in a traditional four prong setting and three prong setting.

Blue Sapphire Accented Engagement Rings for September

The birthstone for the month of September is the blue sapphire, which is a popular addition to bridal jewelry. Sapphires are hard and they score a 9 on Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness, making them an ideal gemstone to be worn every day. Blue sapphires add a unique touch of color to a setting and can also have a special meaning for a couple. For instance, if your anniversary is in September, including this gemstone is a beautiful nod to the beginning of your relationship. Below are just a handful of blue sapphire accented engagement rings that we have available from deBebians.

1. Halo Engagement Ring with Sapphires

Sapphire Halo Engagement Ring

Style # HE297-BS

This sapphire engagement ring is one of my favorite designs due to its antique-inspired elements. The halo is set with round brilliant cut blue sapphires. We use AAA quality blue sapphires that will have an approximate total carat weight of 0.44 cttw.

2. Five Stone Engagement Ring with Sapphire Accents

Sapphire Accented Five Stone Ring

Style # HE199-SBS

Five stone engagement rings are popular designs, but this classic has a distinctive edge. The blue sapphires are modern and complement the center stone beautifully. The AAA quality blue sapphires will weigh approximately 0.60 cttw. We used a classic shared prong setting to showcase the sapphires.

3. Art Deco Diamond Engagement Ring with Sapphire Clusters

Style # HE248-SBS

Style # HE248-SBS

Three round brilliant cut sapphires are set into a cluster on either side of the center stone in this Art Deco-inspired design. The ring is completed with milgrain and pave set diamonds along the band, giving the ring an overall antique look and feel.

We have a huge collection of sapphire engagement rings and sapphire accented engagement rings from which to choose. Please browse our entire collection below to see additional designs and setting styles.

Natural Colored Diamonds

colored-diamondsDiamonds come in virtually all colors of the rainbow, from violet to shades of blue, brown, grey, orange, green, red, etc. But natural colored diamonds are very rare and precious. They are created by nature in the same exact way that the colorless diamonds are – under high temperatures and pressure. Let’s learn and  see how the Mother Nature mixes those colors in.

Yellow diamonds are also known as “canaries.” Mother Nature’s  addition of nitrogen atoms sprinkled into diamond’s lattice can cause a yellow color. That, plus temperatures over 1400 degrees Celsius agitate the nitrogen atoms to “dance” around, forming groups of yellow. A top of the line 1 carat canary diamond can easily run $30,000.

Pink diamonds have been used in jewelry for hundreds of years, dating back before 15th century. However, it wasn’t until the opening of the Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia in the 1980’s that there was a sufficient supply to market them on a worldwide scale. The color of the pink diamond is due to a microscopic imperfection at the atomic level. No trace of the ingredient here, just an irregular growth pattern at a submolecular level. Fancy pink diamonds will go for $ 100,000 per carat and deeper pinks can easily reach over $250,000 per carat.

Blue diamonds – the secret ingredient behind some of the world’s most renowned diamonds, like the Hope Diamond in Washington D.C’s Smithsonian Institute, is boron. Just as nitrogen added to a mix for a canary, boron gas turns a white diamond blue. Blue diamonds are one of the rarest colored diamonds fetching prices from $100,000 to $650,00+ per carat.

Green diamonds, as we continue to climb the scale of the world’s most valuable colored diamonds, come in at second place. With prices ranging from $500,000 to $750,000+ per carat, green diamonds owe their beautiful color to high-energy gamma or neutron radiation.

Red diamonds are at the top of the chain when it come to the world’s most expensive baubles. They are priced at $1 million+ per carat. Like the pinks, their atomic structure is imperfect. But if Mother Nature hadn’t gone amok, we wouldn’t have the handful of samples available to study. There are some private collectors that have been waiting in line for over 15 years for the next red that will hit the market.

Now, “cognac or champagne” diamonds are a by-product of plastic deformation of the atomic crystal lattice structure of a diamond. They are relatively inexpensive and have little or no secondary market value. Black diamonds are typically black because they have been irradiated by man. It is possible to find a black natural diamond (carbonado), but many of the diamonds that are for sale have been treated. Just like brown, they are very inexpensive and should serve only novelty market.

Well, whatever color of the rainbow you will choose to wear on your finger… we are here to help you with finding a perfect stone for you 🙂 Please, call us at 1-213-627-1300 or visit deBebians.com with any questions.

Estate Jewelry in Los Angeles

Vintage Filigree Engagement Ring 18kt Gold 0.50ct Old Miner CutGrowing up in a house that looked like a museum wasn’t too easy on me and my brother or my parents for that matter.  A few things may have broken along the way, sorry Mom and Dad! 🙂 My father was an antique dealer so from an early age, I developed a love and understanding of antiques.  This is why I am so passionate about estate jewelry.  I love appraising and repairing estate jewelry and most of all, I love the stories behind estate jewelry.  I specialize in estate jewelry for 1880 all the way to the present.  My favorite era of jewelry is from the Art Nouveau era.  However, I also appreciate the Edwardian era and even the Art Deco era jewelry.  All estate jewelry in my opinion is special.  Even a piece manufactured 10 years ago can have a history and a story and this is why I appreciate estate jewelry.

Fast forward from when I was a little boy and here I am today. Not only am I the co-owner of deBebians.com, but also the head jewelry designer.  One of my specialties is incorporating different design aspects and making a one of a kind piece.  With my love of estate jewelry, I often times find myself trying to incorporate these details into my designs.  Some examples would be adding hand engraving, milgraining or filigree into my designs.  If you are like me and love estate jewelry or the want to incorporate some of these design features into your engagement ring, we can absolutely do that for you!  You can fill out our free custom quote request form and we’ll get the process started.

Three Stone Radiant Diamond Engagement Rings

Diamond accented engagement rings can range from intricate designs, such as halo rings, to more classic styles, such as three stone engagement rings. Today, I wanted to combine the look of a three stone engagement ring with one of the most popular diamond shapes, the radiant cut. Radiant cut diamonds have brilliant faceting. A radiant cut diamond can either be rectangular or square, depending on the ratio of the diamond. Below are three of our most popular three stone engagement rings that feature radiant cut diamonds as the center stone.

1. Radiant Three Stone Engagement Ring with Baguettes

Three Stone Radiant Diamond Ring

Style # HE167

A radiant cut diamond is set into this setting and flanked by two baguette cut diamonds. The accent diamonds are tapered, giving the ring an elongated and elegant look. We choose G color VS clarity diamonds that will have a total carat weight of approximately 0.26 cttw.

2. Diamond Three Stone Ring with Trillions

Three Stone Engagement Rings Radiant Diamond

Style # HE176

I love the addition of trillion diamonds in a classic three stone setting. The shape angles of the trillion diamonds enhance the look of the center stone. The diamonds that we select will have G color VS clarity diamonds. The diamonds will have an approximate total carat weight of 0.50 cttw.

3. Trapezoid Three Stone Engagement Ring with Pave Band

Radiant Three Stone Engagement Ring

Personal Diamond Shopper

Our staffed GIA graduate gemologists and diamond specialists find the perfect diamond for our clients all the time. On a weekly basis, our team impresses our clients and even me with the diamonds they find.  Just recently, one of our diamond specialists found a beautiful 3 carat emerald cut diamond I would never have believed unless I had seen it with my own eyes.  Our diamond specialist found a 100% eye clean SI2 clarity emerald cut diamond.  Because emerald cut diamonds have step cut faceting, you can see easily inside of the diamond without a microscope.  Therefore, we generally never recommend an emerald cut diamond lower than VS2 clarity.  After years of experience, we have learned how to find the perfect diamond that our clients are seeking.  This is why the Personal Diamond Shopper is the best way to find a perfect GIA certified diamond.

Loose Diamond Search

If you want to search yourself for a loose diamond, our interactive loose diamond search is the best way to find the perfect GIA certified diamond.  You can search by shape, color clarity, carat weight and even cut grade.  Within the results you can see each individual GIA certificate.

What sets us apart from other online diamond companies?

Since we don’t own our diamonds, we only care about one thing–finding the perfect diamond for our customer.  This is really our only goal.  When a customer purchases a diamond, we always have our diamond specialists or GIA graduate gemologists personally examine the diamond to ensure that it fits our high standards.

If you need assistance with finding a loose diamond, please do not hesitate to call on us.
