Diamond Age

If you’re in the market for diamond jewelry, there are a few things you should know before ever setting foot in a jewelry store or even shopping online. The price of diamonds are based on four categories that are often referred to as the four Cs — carat, cut, color, and clarity. Take a look at each of these categories to learn how they affect the price of your diamond.

Higher Price for Higher Carat Weight

The cost of a diamond increases exponentially as the weight of the carrat increases. This means you can save a lot of money by choosing a center diamond that weighs under 1 carat. Once you reach 1.5 carats, you’ll have to fork over a small fortune because diamonds become more and more rare as their weight increases.

Not All Diamonds Are Cut the Same Way

Diamonds are cut into different shapes for different types of diamond jewelry. For instance, the different diamond shapes includes round, princess, oval, marquise, heart, pear, emerald, trilliant, radiant, and cushion. Most people have a diamond cut preference, so you should try to find out what your significant other likes before buying diamond jewelry for them. The diamond cut is probably the most important category to consider because it plays the biggest role in how a diamond looks.

Each Diamond Has a Unique Color Hue

Diamonds are awarded a value number based on their color. You want to buy a diamond with a letter value of J or higher, meaning J-D. This is because these diamonds have the least amount of color. If you thought all diamonds were clear, you were wrong. Some have a slightly yellowish hue that makes them worth less money. Of course, pink diamonds are more rare, so they have a higher value.

Clarity Can’t Be Detected by the Eye

All diamonds have imperfections, even if they are microscopic. You can get a better deal on diamond jewelry with flaws. This is a great way to save money because these flaws aren’t typically visible to the naked eye. Of course, you should never buy a diamond before examining it yourself first.

Understanding each of these diamond terms should help you make a better buying decision. Although, don’t forget to take into consideration the jewelry itself. Picking out the diamond is only half the battle, but it is definitely an important one.

Trends: Feeling Good


Magnetic jewelry has been said to diminish pain associated with inflammation, such as arthritis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel. This effect is attributed to the magnetic field the jewelry creates near the site of inflammation. Ankle bracelets may be worn to ease discomfort in the ankles, wrist bracelets may be worn for wrist and hand problems, and magnetic necklaces may be worn for neck discomfort.

Quality magnetic jewelry usually contains special kinds of magnets called neodymium or rare earth magnets, which produce a strong magnetic field. This field may improve circulation in the wrist area when the bracelet is worn.

While research has yet to prove or disprove this, many consumers strongly claim that magnetic jewelry does feel good to wear and relieve discomfort. Athletes who need arm and wrist strength for their sport, such as tennis players and golfers, sometimes wear magnetic bracelets.

Aside from feeling good, another reason that magnetic bracelets are trending right now is they look great and go with nearly any outfit. There are solid metal bracelets as well as beaded bracelets that contain beautiful gemstones. Whether you are a man or a woman, you can wear these bracelets in any season. Magnetic bracelets are attractive enough to wear with sweaters, blazers, nice shirts or blouses.

Here are some of the popular styles of magnetic bracelets


Copper is also believed to be helpful for arthritis and is sometimes worn by golfers. You will find plain copper magnet bracelets, as well as woven bracelets at shops such as Magnet Jewelry Store. Paired with either casual clothes or formal attire, a copper magnet bracelet can help you look and feel your best.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel easily retains its shine through light cleaning and stands up to a lot of abuse. Choose from delicate woven bracelets or thick, bold bracelets.

Beaded Bracelets

These beautiful bracelets combine the power of magnets with the beauty of stones such as turquoise, amethyst, hematite, coral, tiger-eye, mother of pearl, and agate. Match the stone colors with your outfit to pull the look together.


Hematite is an interesting stone, with a unique, dark grey sheen. It has a place in history as a stone commonly worn to protect the wearer. As an iron ore, hematite can be magnetized. Bracelets made from hematite have a subdued and classy, low-sheen metallic look. Pair these bracelets with jeans and a t-shirt, or nice pants and shirt.

Sponsored Video: Tudor, The Timepiece of All Time


Among the watches I would like to own, if my budget permits it, are Rolex and Tudor. These two watches are timepieces that we can truly be proud of and can be handed down from generation to generation. Even though they are expensive, we can be sure that we are getting our money’s worth when we buy them. It’s also a good investment because its value doesn’t depreciate. Tudor Watch Company was first established in March 1946 by Hans Wilsdorf, the same man who made Rolex a household name. He wanted a watch that would be more affordable but with the same qualities that a Rolex watch has. The name Tudor was taken from the Tudor period of England. The first logo of Tudor watches was a Tudor Rose on the dial, an emblem of England. In the late 1960’s it was changed into the Shield emblem.

The first Tudor Oyster was introduced in the 1940’s while the Tudor Oyster Prince was introduced in 1952. Its marketing campaign centered on the watch’s durability and showed that it can be worn anywhere, even in extreme conditions. Models that can be worn underwater soon followed. The Tudor Prince Submariner during 1964-1966 and Marine Nationale during the early 1970’s-1984 are more technologically and functionally advanced. The Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph was then introduced in 1970. Along with a new slogan, “Designed for Performance. Engineered for Elegance”, the Grantour Collection was presented in 2009. The Tudor Heritage Black Bay comes from Tudor Heritage collection. It’s exquisitely designed and finely crafted and draws inspiration from the 1954 model.

The latest addition to the Tudor Heritage collection is the new Tudor Heritage Advisor. It was introduced in 2011. It’s a modern version of the 1957 alarm watch equipped with a mechanical alarm clock module. A lot of the original design was retained with a few modern twists to the design. Among the other features are 42 mm titanium and steel case with polished and satin finish, steel winding crown with a Tudor Rose, domed sapphire crystal, a choice of an alligator leather strap or steel bracelet. It’s waterproof up to a depth of 330 feet.

When it comes to innovation, Tudor watches stand out. Its fabric straps are hand-crafted, meticulously done, and comfortable to the wrist. They certainly make the watches more stylish and sophisticated. Tudor watches are made with high quality and has durability in mind. They use only the best materials and these are tested up to the smallest detail. With every Tudor watch is a promise of excellence, durability, and style.
