As you wear fewer layers of clothing, you can put on more layers of gems, silver and gold! Some summer essentials that you weren’t able to show off in the winter months are toe rings and anklets. As you switch from boots to sandals, make sure to accessorize accordingly. You can go with simple silver or gold anklets, or spice things up with mixed metals, fun gems and charms! Another great summer accessory is nautical themed jewelry. Nothing says “summer” like the ocean on the horizon and the sand beneath your toes. Look for jewelry inspired by the open ocean with popular sea life motifs or designs with sailboats, rope patterns and anchors.

If your colors are bright, you’re doing it right

Remember that summer is all about bright colors, so opt for yellow gold and colorful gemstones. Keep your jewelry selection light and fun. Yellow gold bangles, rings and necklaces will really bring out your newly sun-kissed skin after a long, cold winter. Say goodbye to the dark and pale tones of winter, it’s time to get excited about colorful gems. If you really love to sparkle, look into gem clusters. They offer a variety of stones and colors all in one piece!

An Unexpected Source Of Diamonds?

If you’ve ever seen the movie Blood Diamond, you may be under the impression that Western Africa is the leading producer of diamonds in the world.  In fact, we asked our intern today who she thought the leading diamond producer was, and she immediately said “Sierra Leone”.  As of the end of 2014, Africa has been surpassed by a country that most people wouldn’t think of when speculating where a diamond comes from.  Russia is actually the leading producer of diamonds in the world both by volume and by value, beating out number two producer, Botswana, according to KPCS.  Over the past year the global output of diamonds grew by 4 percent as the average price jumped 8 percent to $116.17 per carat.  Despite these numbers, overall global diamond production, in terms of volume, fell to 124.8 million carats.  

 

Like any number of other things, the price of diamonds is controlled by the market and the principle of scarcity.  There are a finite number of diamonds and a lot of people that want diamonds.  A number of additional factors are attributed to the final cost like cut, clarity, and so on, but everything begins with that one raw stone.  The next time you see light dancing off of that multi-faceted diamond, remember that every diamond has a story to tell and the most important one is yours.  Right now, you can take advantage of Hemming Plaza Jewelers’ Summer Savings Diamond Blowout and start telling a story that endures for generations.
