Hello again! Codee here (one of JTV's newest interns), and I have some great news to share with you! I have recently become engaged, and shopping for engagement rings has become all the rage around the office! What an excellent place to be working at a time like this, right? Now that my very own prince charming has swept me off my feet, it’s on to the next big thing--choosing a ring!
Before I worked at the world's largest retailer for gemstones, I thought I had an idea of what I wanted in an engagement ring. However, I started talking to some in-house experts to see what JTV had to offer, and there are so many options!
Since I was in love with so many styles (and since my left ring finger was yearning for bling), I turned to Diamond Design Gallery by JTV (diamonddesigngallery.com) to help design the perfect ring! Jewelry Television’s Diamond Design Gallery contains all the materials you need to design your own ring--great for people like me who like a variety of styles or for creative people who want a custom design. But Diamond Design Gallery isn't just for brides-to-be! You can also create earrings, pendants, bracelets and Mother's rings. Now back to the task at hand...engagement rings!
In the Diamond Design Gallery by Jewelry Television, you can pick your specifications on your diamond. On Diamond Design Gallery, there are more than 50,000 diamonds in ten different cuts. You can use the sliding scale to choose what range of criteria you are looking for in your diamond. On a budget? Slide the scale to fit yours. Looking for a certain color? Create a range and Diamond Design Gallery will find a diamond you are looking for. (Not familiar with the 4 C’s--color, cut, clarity and carat? Neither was I, until I visited JTV’s Learning Library. This source has an abundance of information on what to look for when searching for your sparkly piece of jewelry.)
DiamondDesignGallery.comDesigning the ring of your dreams is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3 with DiamondDesignGallery.com!
Step 1: One of the many cool things about Diamond Design Gallery is that once you have specified your criteria, an array of diamonds will be listed that match your choices. You can analyze the specifications on the diamonds--even compare multiple ones--then choose the stone that you like before you move to the next step--picking a setting for your diamond!
Step 2: This is where the fun begins! Once you have the perfect stone picked out, you can choose a setting that fits your personality and style. You have a choice between a solitaire or side stone engagement ring, and you even have the option of selecting a coordinating wedding band. Both the settings and the bands come in a variety of metal--14k and 18k white and yellow gold, platinum and palladium.
After you have decided what will best dazzle your left hand, add the ring to your cart. Follow the simple payment plans, and voila! You are one step closer to wedded bliss!
I fell in love with pave diamond band with a halo around the center stone. This is such a classic look--traditional, but being able to design it myself gave it a unique twist.
We were fortunate enough to have samples of the many different designs that you, yes you, can design on Diamond Design Gallery. Check out the gorgeous styles that are available at your fingertips.
This round center stone goes perfectly with side stones and matching wedding band.
Nobody said this job would be easy, but someone has to do it! :) More photos of the rings I loved are shown below.
The detail on this ring is absolutely beautiful.
