Diamond Jubilee Hallmark – On Diamond Store Jewellery

 

Hallmarks are compulsory marks branded into precious metal to show who made the item, its standard of quality and the Assay Office where it was quality tested and marked.

 

A hallmark is the reassurance of quality and give customers the peace of mind that they are investing in a quality piece of jewellery which has been tested to ensure it conforms to all standards of metal purity.

 

2012 is the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. To celebrate the Queens service of 60 years, the UK Assay Offices have created a special commemorative hallmark.

 

The Diamond Store will be offering this unique, historic, collectable hallmark on all our Full Eternity Rings

 

 

After engagement rings, eternity rings are the most coveted jewellery as the circle of precious stones represents one person’s eternal love for another. Eternity rings are traditionally given to mark special occasions in a couple’s life such as significant anniversaries, the birth of a child or milestone birthdays. Diamonds feature in many of the eternity rings as they have long symbolised love and commitment.

Interesting Facts About Eternity Rings

The endless or eternal loop of the eternity ring has always represented eternal love and commitment, the origin of which can be traced back as far as 4000BC. To accentuate the theme of two lives forever intertwined, many eternity rings are multi stranded or plaited. Some designs take the form of a snake swallowing its own tail.

 

One traditional reason for giving or receiving an eternity ring is the birth of the first child. This is one way that men can empathise and show support for the pain and discomfort their partner has endured during the process of childbirth.

 

Eternity rings are also given to mark anniversaries and milestone birthfays and can either be worn alongside the wedding and engagement ring or can be used to replace the wedding ring.

5 Stone Eternity Ring

When thinking about buying an eternity ring, it´s quite important to consider a few things about the person you are buying it for.  Will it be a diamond ring that will be worn every day or just worn on special occasions.  Are they quite a heavy handed person and use their hands a lot during their work?  It´s important, because eternity rings are beautiful delicate rings, and some people love full eternity rings, some people like half eternity rings and some peoples preference is a 5 stone eternity ring, and there is a right ring for each person.

 

Having had a browse through some of the 5 stone eternity rings that The Diamond Store have for sale, they really are quite nice.  I have never really noticed how many stones are in each ring.  I just thought it was either full or half.  But 5 is a nice odd number and personally I always feel that odd numbers look better when it comes to stones, i.e 1, 3, 5 etc.

 

5 Stone Eternity Rings come in all sorts of configurations.  You can choose White Gold 5 Stone Eternity Rings, Yellow Gold 5 Stone Eternity Rings, Platinum 5 Stone Eternity Ring with diamonds ranging from 0.22ct up to a whopping 1.50 ct.  The decision is yours and obviously it comes down to the amount you would like to spend.  If you are unsure you can always call The Customer Service Department for a second opinion and also take advantage of the payment schemes available.

3 Stone Engagement Rings

What does a 3 stone engagement ring mean?  Well it is meant to represent the past, present and future.  Lately a few celebrities have received 3 stone engagement rings…it maybe for the symbolic reason of their past, present and future, or maybe they are just greedy buggers!    Madonna was given a 3 stone engagement ring by Guy Ritchie.  the popular Kim Kardashian and Mariah Carey have already recived a 3 stone engagement ring, which Im sure will not be their last.  The Engagement Ring Business sure does seem to do well within the Celebrity World. One week engagement and married, the next, the marriage is being annulled.

 

3 Stone Engagement Rings are also popular as anniversary presents.  But like I have mentioned before on The Diamond Store News, there are no set rules and you can use any ring for whichever occasion you want nowadays.  There is not wrong or right, it´s about you, what you like and what you want.
