synthetic diamonds

A synthetic diamond — also called an artificial diamond, cultured diamond or cultivated diamond — is a diamond produced by an artificial, human-engineered process, as opposed to a natural diamond, which is created by a natural geological process. Synthetic diamonds are commonly referred to as HPHT (high-pressure high-temperature) diamonds or CVD (chemical vapor deposition) diamonds after the two most common production methods.

There’s nothing wrong with synthetic diamonds, if that’s what you’re after. But the real danger lies in believing that you’re buying natural diamonds when you are instead getting synthetic ones, which are significantly less valuable.

What Synthetic Diamonds Are Not

Synthetic Diamonds

Synthetic diamonds are sometimes incorrectly referred to as imitations or simulants. Diamond imitations such as cubic zirconia and synthetic moissanite — which only look like diamonds — have very different chemical and physical properties from diamonds. This is what allows trained gemologists to recognize them more easily. Synthetic diamonds, however, are much harder to detect.

Synthetic and Natural Diamonds are Made of the Same Thing

Synthetic Diamonds

While most people associate the term synthetic with imitation products, artificial diamonds are actually made of the same material as natural ones (pure carbon, crystallized in isotropic 3D form). In the U.S., the Federal Trade Commission is working to make the naming distinction more clear. It has indicated that terms such as laboratory-grownlaboratory-created, and [manufacturer-name]-created “more clearly communicate the nature of the stone.”

How to Avoid The Synthetic Trap

Synthetic Diamonds

Gem-quality synthetic diamonds are more available than ever before. The process for making them has improved, and consequently, so many good synthetic diamonds are entering the market that customers can inadvertently purchase a synthetic diamond without knowing it.

There is certainly nothing inherently wrong with buying a synthetic diamond. But they are less valuable than natural diamonds, and they can easily be passed off as natural by untrustworthy jewelers and merchants.

To that end, the importance of working with a jeweler you know and trust simply cannot be overstated. A good jeweler will have the expertise and equipment to determine synthetic diamonds from natural ones.

Synthetic Diamonds

The bottom line is: If you’re going to invest in quality diamonds, you should do so from a reputable, authorized dealer like Eiseman Jewels.

David Webb

Known as “America’s Quintessential Jeweler,” David Webb was a creative visionary whose bold, beautiful statement pieces have been highly sought-after by everyone from socialites to movie stars. Long after his passing, Webb’s legacy continues to make an impact on the jewelry and fashion worlds.

When Webb was just nine years old, he was introduced to metalwork and quickly developed a passion for jewelry-making. He eventually apprenticed at his uncle’s factory, and at 17, he moved from South Carolina to New York City to pursue his craft full-time. At 23, he opened the doors to his flagship store on Manhattan’s Madison Avenue. It would go on to become one of the greatest luxury jewelry houses in America. Just two years later, his jewelry was featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine. And the rest, as they say, is history.

David Webb

Best known for his animal designs, Webb’s jewelry was recognizable for its decorative, bold use of color and impeccable attention to detail. His design influences ranged from his boyhood memories of the South to his explorations of faraway places and ancient cultures. He excelled in his use of yellow gold, diamonds and semi-precious stones to bring the creations of his imagination to life.

David Webb

Webb’s iconic jewelry has been worn by everyone from Hollywood A-listers to American royalty since the brand was founded in the late 1940s. Some of his clients included Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly, Estée Lauder, Lana Turner, Jackie Kennedy and even generations of Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. Elizabeth Taylor featured four pages of David Webb jewelry in the photo book of her famous collection, “My Love Affair with Jewelry.” And Diana Vreeland, the legendary editor of Harper’s Bazaar, was rarely seen without her favorite David Webb zebra bangle.

More recently, you’ll spot stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Eva Mendez, Jennifer Garner and Cameron Diaz wearing Webb’s jewelry to Hollywood parties, award shows and galas.

There are a lot of factors that go into choosing a wedding band. The quality, the materials, the price — they all play a big part in the decision. But what matters most is the emotional connection to the ring. Does it make the bride’s face light up? Does the groom beam with pride when he wears it? When you find the right one, you just know.

Engraving a personalized message of love on the inside of a wedding band makes it you unique to you and your spouse. Your wedding date, special nicknames you have for each other, a sentiment that means a lot to you both — these are just a few engraving examples that can add a special touch to your rings. Yes, an engraved wedding band is a romantic gesture, but it’s also a lasting expression of love between you and your new spouse. Your rings will likely become family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

Engraving and Personalizations Options from Furrer Jacot

Since 1858, in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen, Furrer Jacot has produced made-to-order individually crafted wedding bands and jewelry according to the highest standards of Swiss craftsmanship. The FJ trademark stamped into every piece symbolizes this traditional company’s dedication to and responsibility for the quality and authenticity of the materials used and the workmanship of its products.

Below are the different engraving options offered by Furrer Jacot, as well as a few ideas for what to engrave on your wedding bands.

Hand Engraving: There was a time when all engraving was done by hand, but today the art is known only by a select few. A hand-engraved ring preserves the hand of the artisan, so no matter the message or sentiment, it truly remains one-of-a-kind.

hand engraving Schreibschrift

Laser Script or Block Engraving: A laser burns your personal message into the surface of the ring in script or block lettering. This cutting-edge technology provides unsurpassed detail and depth.

A Message in Your Own Handwriting: Take your ring’s customization a step further by engraving your personal message inside your spouse’s wedding band in your own handwriting. The moment they see their wedding band with your handwriting on it, they will know that ring was made just for them.

Engraving laser handwriting

A Poem: A poem or any other short writing piece that is special to the two of you can also be engraved inside your wedding bands.

Laser Fingerprint Engraving: Engraving your fingerprints inside each other’s rings is a new way to show your love and make your rings entirely your own.

computer-aided design

In the early days of jewelry making, designers would sit down with paper and pencil to sketch out a design, drawing and re-drawing until it was perfect. The drawing not only had to capture the beautiful design, but it also had to be completely accurate so it could be used in the process of hand-making the jewelry. If the designer wanted to create a slight variation on their original design, they would have to start the process over and create a new model from scratch.

Today, thanks to cutting-edge design technology, things are very different. CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer aided-manufacturing) are tools that generate traditional technical drawings on a computer and then manufacture the items designed on those computers. CAD creates three-dimensional models that allow designers to examine intricate designs up close from any angle, rotate and manipulate models onscreen just like a physical model, and even “weigh” the item before it’s constructed. CAM uses computer software and machinery to manufacture the products designed by CAD models.

computer-aided design

What does all that have to do with jewelry design? A lot, it turns out. Here are some of the key benefits of using CAD/CAM systems in jewelry design.

  • CAD technology helps create designs that are both precise and complex — many of which would be almost impossible to do by hand.
  • With CAD, we can design pieces specifically for certain gem sizes, which helps increase accuracy, decrease errors, reduce production time and minimize the cost and waste of materials. In many cases, it minimizes the time taken up by trial and error and speeds up each step of the process.
  • If you aren’t happy with the way a piece of jewelry is progressing in the design stage, alterations and modifications can easily be made before the design is carried out. In the same vein, CAD allows us to see realistic images of virtual jewelry in its finished state before execution, making sure we get it just right.
  • It also gets you involved in the design process in a much more intimate way, which translates to a higher degree of personal expression in the custom-designed finished piece.
  • If your specially designed piece of jewelry happened to be lost or stolen, it can easily be recreated with your saved CAD file.

To explore the possibilities of designing your own jewelry via CAD/CAM with us, visit Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center in Dallas.

At Eiseman Jewels, we travel the world to bring you the very best in jewelry and timepieces. And every summer, our travels take us to the luxurious Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, where the Couture show hosts the who’s who in the luxury jewelry and timepiece industry. This is the only venue in the United States to present a curated collection of more than 200 preeminent designers and brands, and more than 4,000 buyers from the world’s most distinguished retailers attend the show each year.

Here are some of the strongest jewelry trends we spotted at this year’s Couture show.

1. Tassels

Our collective fascination with tassels showed no signs of stopping at Couture. They continue to lend effortless flair to earrings, necklaces and bracelets — especially those with an Art Deco influence.

2. Pearls

The recent resurgence of pearls has gone a long way toward shedding this jewelry staple’s prim-and-proper reputation. There are a ton of artful designs that bring this classic into the modern age.

3. Pastels

A palette of soft, delicate hues such as light blues, greens and pinks was everywhere at the show. Even if you’re not big into pastels, you can rock this trend with a big pink cocktail ring.

4. Fan-Shaped Earrings

SJE2555W (L)

Fan-shaped jewelry, like these from Sutra Jewels, was another huge trend we saw at the show. Earrings make a natural fit for fan shapes, which can be quite dramatic when strands of stones hang from them.

5. Engagement Ring Trends

The Solitaire

The epitome of simplicity and sophistication, the classic solitaire continues to be a popular choice, regardless of the shape of the center diamond. Instead of spending a majority of the budget on the ring itself, many brides are opting to place all of the emphasis on the star of the show: the center diamond.

The Three-Stone Ring

A three-stone engagement ring features a (usually larger) center diamond framed by two perfectly matched side diamonds. The most classic three-stone engagement rings feature round brilliant diamonds, but this durable, long-wearing style looks beautiful with any diamond shape, metal or setting.

crown jewels

The Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom — a singular, world-famous collection of sacred and ceremonial objects, including crowns, robes and other items — have been stored at the Tower of London for over 600 years. With the world abuzz about Prince Harry’s impending nuptials to the American former actress Meghan Markle, speculation regarding the crown jewels she will wear during the May 19 ceremony is rampant.

Since the 1930s, almost every royal bride who has married in Britain has worn a tiara on her wedding day, so the odds are that Meghan will, too. Here are a few of the possibilities for Meghan’s wedding day jewels.

crown jewels

The Strathmore Rose Tiara

While there aren’t official rules governing which types of tiaras can be worn to a wedding, they historically tend to feature a floral motif. The Strathmore Rose Tiara, which is fashioned of pavé-set diamonds set in silver and gold in the shape of a wild rose garland, was originally purchased as a gift for Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (who would later go on to become the Queen Mother) from her father for her wedding to the Duke of York, the future King George IV.

The Queen Mother’s Cartier Bandeau

Sleek, modern and packed with diamonds, this Art Deco-era royal heirloom consists of three of a set of five gem-set bracelets, which can be worn on their own on the wrist or on a bandeau frame as a tiara. If Meghan — who tends to favor simple, elegant jewelry — chooses to wear this piece on her wedding day, the connection to the Queen Mother (who first owned it) and Queen Elizabeth II (who owns it now) would make a lovely touch.

The Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot

crown jewelsWith its romantic name, storied past, and jaw-dropping beauty, this quintessentially British tiara is a little more than a century old. It is one of the best-known tiaras in the British royal family’s collection, mostly thanks to it being a favorite of the late Princess Diana, who wore it often. Unlike some other famous royal pieces, the stunning diamond-and-pearl creation is part of the family’s private collection and currently belongs to Queen Elizabeth II.

The Spencer Tiara

Although it’s not in the royal collection, the Spencer Tiara, which was worn by Princess Diana at her wedding to Prince Charles, is another wedding-day option for Meghan. However, many consider it a long shot. Not only is it a Spencer family heirloom, not a royal one, but it will also only invite more comparisons to Diana — something Meghan and her future sister-in-law Kate get enough of already.

Something New

crown jewelsMarkle may also have something new commissioned for the occasion — either a refashioning of other jewelry in the royal collection or an entirely custom piece. She might also opt to skip the tiara altogether and wear another kind of jeweled ornament in her hair.

Other Famous Crown Jewels

The most famous royal sapphire is the engagement ring given to Lady Diana Spencer by Prince Charles in 1981 — later slipped on Kate Middleton’s finger by Prince William on their engagement day in 2010. It features an 18-carat oval blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds.

The Cullinan Diamond

The Cullinan Diamond, named after mine chairman Thomas Cullinan, weighed in at 3,106.75 carats when it was discovered in South Africa on January 26, 1905.

After being presented to King Edward VII on his 66th birthday, it was cut into several polished gems, the largest of which is known as the Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa. At 530.4 carats, it is the largest clear-cut diamond in the world. Cullinan I is mounted in the head of the Sovereign’s Sceptre with Cross. The second-largest, at 317.4 carats, is Cullinan II or the Second Star of Africa; it is mounted in the Imperial State Crown. Both diamonds are part of the Crown Jewels.

Although you’ll have to travel to England to view some of these and other royal jewels, you can browse our stunning collection of new and vintage jewelry at Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center in Dallas.

 

diamond cuts

When a diamond comes out of the earth, it is rough and unrefined. It takes hours of cutting and polishing to turn a rough diamond into the beautiful stone we know and love.

Not to be confused with diamond shape (such as round, pear or oval), a diamond’s cut refers to its symmetry, proportioning and polish. A diamond’s cut has an enormous impact on everything from its beauty and sparkle to its value and appearance. Here’s a guide to the various cuts you may encounter when shopping for a diamond.

Old Mine (Cushion)

cushion

With its rounded corners and curved sides, the old mine cut (also known as the cushion cut) is simply breathtaking. It has 58 facets — the same number as the modern round brilliant diamonds produced today. The cut’s name comes from the fact that hundreds of years ago, most diamonds came from India or Brazil. After Africa became the diamond capital of the world, diamonds that preceded this new era were said to be from the “old mines.”

Popular throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, old mine cuts are essentially the great-grandfathers of modern brilliant cuts. There are few good examples of old mine cuts around today, so demand is high for these vintage beauties.

Old European

european

Old European cut diamonds were handcrafted from 1890 to the 1930s, and were very popular during the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco eras. This cut’s 58 facets take the shape of thick triangular blocks, as opposed to the thinner facets found in modern round brilliant cuts. Old European cuts also appear round from the top view as opposed to old mine cuts, which have a more squared-off top view. The 58 facets make the old European another predecessor of today’s modern round brilliant cut.

Rose

rose

A rose cut diamond echoes the petals of a rose by imitating the narrowing spiral of the flower’s petals. Rose cut gems have anywhere from three to 24 triangular facets that come to a point at the top and a flat bottom that creates a larger surface area to enhance the stone’s brilliance. The rose cut was popular in the Georgian and Victorian eras of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Asscher

asscher

Invented by the Royal Asscher Diamond Company in 1902, the Asscher cut is one of the very first patented diamond cuts in the world. However, it didn’t gain widespread popularity until the Art Deco era of the 1920s. Distinctive and understated, its vintage-inspired style is a favorite among brides who envision their rings becoming future family heirlooms. The Asscher cut is typically more brilliant than its cousin, the emerald cut.

Emerald

emerald

Stonecutters initially created the emerald cut for emerald stones — hence the name. It became popular partly because of the fact that its shape helped prevent chips from occurring in the emeralds during the cutting process. Diamond cutters took notice of this new shape and began to use it on diamonds as well.

The emerald cut boasts a stunning “hall of mirrors” effect, and while it’s understated, it’s also very glamorous. Its subtle elegance is associated with royalty, which may be why emerald cuts have remained one of the most popular choices for engagement rings and other jewelry pieces since the Art Deco era.

Marquise

marquise

The marquise has one of the most interesting histories of all the modern diamond cuts. Named for the Marquise De Pompadour, the mistress of French king Louis XV, the marquise cut was created to resemble the shape of Madame de Pompadour’s mouth, which Louis believed to be perfect. The marquise cut is made to maximize carat weight and features 58 facets and an elliptical shape with pointed ends.

Round Brilliant

round brilliant

Invented early in the twentieth century, this versatile and sophisticated cut has become incredibly popular in recent years thanks to its sparkling brilliance and elegant symmetry. The round brilliant’s 58 facets are cut in such a way to increase the light bouncing off it, giving it unparalleled fire and radiance. It’s the cut of choice for brides seeking a thoroughly stylish, up-to-date and eye-catching look.

pearlmaster

The Rolex Pearlmaster 39 is Rolex’s consummate jewelry watch. Featuring the softly curved lines of the Pearlmaster design, it is characterized by a uniquely rich dial and exquisite gem settings of diamonds in 18-karat Everose gold — an exclusive 18-karat pink gold alloy patented by Rolex and cast in its own foundry. The Aubergine dial — designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection —features diamond-set hour markers that shine brightly. Both sensual and sophisticated, the solid gold Pearlmaster bracelet is always fitted with a concealed Crownclasp.

Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the Pearlmaster’s new generation 3235 movement is a certified Swiss chronometer. And of course, we can’t forget one of the most distinctive and recognizable Rolex features: the Cyclops lens. It enhances the date aperture, magnifying the date display for easy reading.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 II

yacht master

Rolex set its Yacht Master 40 II in iconic gemstones for the first time ever. A crown of multicolored jewels graces the rotating bezel — 32 sapphires, eight tsavorites and one diamond, to be exact. It also features an 18-karat Everose gold case, a glossy black dial with oversized white lume plots, and Everose surrounds. The multicolored bezel pops against the black Oysterflex rubber strap and 18-karat Everose Oysterlock clasp. Though gems have graced Rolex’s Yacht-Master bezels before, they’ve never been on the 40 mm model, and they’ve never been this vibrant. Water resistant up to 330 feet, this is the perfect summer watch for the Rolex connoisseur.
