Custom Shop Platinum Ring Features Rare Blue Diamond

Jewelry designer/television personality Robert Manse recently teamed with Novell Design Studio’s Custom Shop to create a personal, one-of-a-kind men’s platinum ring. Specially made to celebrate his twenty-five years in the jewelry industry, the solid platinum contemporary style showcases the brilliant “Manse Diamond.” One and a half carats in size, it has been Robert’s mission to find a perfect fancy intense blue diamond to set in his own custom creation. Not only has such a stone been discovered, but it is set for life in the worlds most precious metal!

What is a Blue Diamond?
Naturally blue diamonds have been found in mines of South Africa, Australia and India. Colored diamonds are a lot like snowflakes – no two are exactly alike. Blue is among the rarest colors in the diamond family. In fact, they are more rare than pink diamonds, and quite valuable. Their appearance is caused from boron trapped in the crystal’s structure.

Why did Robert Choose Platinum?
Platinum is considered to be the best precious metal for protecting expensive diamonds. Platinum is 100% hypoallergenic and naturally white in color, so it never needs to be rhodium plated (unlike white gold). It goes extremely well with colored stones. In fact, platinum holds them more secure than any other metal in the marketplace. Diamonds are the hardest gemstones and platinum is the most superior precious metal…a perfect combination.

A surprise proposal in New York’s Bryant Park.

Proposal in Bryant Park.

Exactly six months to the day after old high school friends Jamie Brickwedel and Christopher Barlo reconnected on a chance bus ride, Chris surprised Jamie with his proposal in New York’s Bryant Park.  During the December 2, 2010 Christmas tree lighting ceremony (and soon after Jamie had serenaded her soon-to-be fiancé with Whitesnakes’ “Hear I Go Again” Karaoke-style while Rock of Ages performed it live on a nearby stage), the gentleman drew a ring box from behind his back containing a platinum engagement ring (Novell’s SE2459-LC) set with a 1 karat cushion-cut center diamond. The young lady was pleasantly surprised, and recounts the experience fully in the post The Big News on her blog The Island of Reality.

The future-bride is a Medical Editor at IMC-2 (pronounced “IMC squared”), while the future-groom is a Senior Electrician at Electronic Environments.

Why choose platinum for your engagement ring? Simply put, platinum is a durable naturally white metal that ages very well. And since platinum’s price point is now very similar to gold (and white gold is not naturally white and turns yellow over time), platinum is worth the investment for engagement rings, wedding rings and jewelry.

Platinum wedding bands positioned differently to both sexes.

When it comes to platinum wedding bands or even jewelry in general – do men and women really think the same way?Platinum wedding bands. Well, American wedding band manufacturer Novell does not necessarily think so. Novell’s simple yet timeless platinum wedding band ad, “What You Deserve,” presents the benefits of platinum separately to both women and men in a unique yet equal manner. Throughout the years, many wedding band advertisements position the precious metal with particular words and characteristics that are specifically aimed towards the woman; while it’s more masculine attributes often are understated or ignored. Therefore, with “What You Deserve,” Novell illustrates both sides to the platinum wedding band story. For her, platinum represents the pure expression of love shared. It is precious, rare and eternal. For him, platinum is a magnificent, distinguished and resilient mineral that separates the man wearing it from those that do not.

“What You Deserve” started running  in select wedding magazines (Wedding Dresses, The Nest) during 2008, and was also seen in the jewelry trade publications Modern Jeweler and In Store. All in all, Novell’s positioning of platinum to each of the sexes is classic and can translate well with the future wedding band buying generations to come.

On January 6th, 10th and 11th 2010, LA Times included several ads featuring one of Novell’s upcoming platinum engagement ring styles. Novell is extremely excited about the preview press we have been able to receive from LA Times and look forward to launching the new bridal line in the very near future. While newspaper circulation overall is suffering in the United States, longstanding titles such as the LA Times, NY Times and Wall Street Journal still have their solid audience. In particular, special Sunday supplements dedicated to weddings and events like The Academy Awards perform extremely well. The Los Angeles area can also be considered a region of trendsetting consumers, so it makes complete sense that new products should be presented to future brides and grooms in this valuable area.  This platinum engagement ring will soon be available through an authorized Novell retailer.

Video shows that tungsten wedding bands can not be sized.

Have you been looking into choosing tungsten for your wedding band? Well, if you are, then you might wish to take a look at this demonstration video.

The  video illustrates that precious metals will indeed bend. Therefore, should you need you ring resized down the road, then this can be accomplished. And let’s face it – most Americans tend to gain or lose weight over their lifetime, and some may fluctuate quite a bit. So if you like to remove your wedding band but gain a few pounds over time, a precious metal wedding band can be adjusted. And precious metals can be refinished to look close to new as well.

Tungsten can not bend, although it can shatter. You can not size your tungsten wedding band. This is such a shame due to the fact that history shows that trends change quite a bit in the jewelry industry, and the manufacturer of the tungsten wedding band that you purchased may or may not be around in five or ten years. The same goes for any online wedding band website that may have sold you the ring. You should ask yourself a simple question – who will honor their exchange policy (if they have one) should I need a new tungsten wedding band in the future?

Wedding bands are symbolic of love that should last forever. And shouldn’t you be able to keep that original symbol of your love on your finger forever? A lot of consumers choose to upgrade their wedding bands over time, but many decide to keep their original wedding band on their hand for as long as possible. So protect your wedding band investment, and perhaps choose one created with a precious metal. After all, love is precious, and so should wedding band.

If price is really an issue during this tough economic time, then you may wish to consider palladium for your wedding band. Palladium is a naturally white metal that currently costs much less than white gold. While platinum is the premium metal for jewelry, palladium is a strong choice if platinum is not an option.

Should the relative price point of a tungsten wedding band be attractive, then why not consider Argentium Sterling Silver? Argentium Sterling Silver is easy to care for and does not tarnish easily. It is an attractive – if not somewhat new – option for your wedding band when looking for something that costs even less than palladium, but might be priced similar to the tungsten wedding bands seen on many popular websites (starting at $149.00). Spending a little more now is definitely beneficial over the long haul.
