Joys of Jade

A symbol of all that is good and precious in some cultures, jade is different than other types of valuable gems or precious metals. It is a metamorphic rock made up of tiny interlocking mineral crystals. The term “jade” actually refers to two separate gems: nephrite and jadeite. Modern gemologists use jade to describe both.

Jadeite comes in a wide range of beautiful colors: shades of green, yellow and reddish orange in addition to white, gray, black, brown and lavender. Nephrite’s colors range from translucent to opaque and can be light to dark green, yellow, brown, black, gray or white.

Ounce for ounce, jade is more valuable than gold — and that’s before you take into account the value of the piece’s antiquity. Jade is always appreciating in value.

Joys of Jade

Jade in Chinese Culture

“Gold has a price; jade is priceless.” —Chinese proverb

Nephrite was the first jade discovered in China, and it has been a symbol of status, spirituality, health and purity in Chinese culture for 9,000 years. Today, Chinese nephrite deposits are all but depleted, so most jade traded in modern China is jadeite. In a nod to tradition, however, every winning athlete’s medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics was embedded with a piece of pure nephrite jade.

Why We Love Jade

The way it interacts with light: Jadeite’s structure scatters light. If properly cut, a white piece with a small green spot will make the gem appear completely green if lit from behind.

The way it differs from other gems: Due to the way jade interacts with light, it is rarely faceted. Even semi-transparent jade is usually fashioned into cabochons, beads or other styles. It’s soft enough to carve yet durable, so the stone can be cut in unusual ways. Add this to the fact that rough jade can be quite large, and the result is often unique designs you won’t find in other jewels.

The way it rings: Nephrite rings like a bell when struck. Artisans have created chimes, xylophones and gongs from melodically resonant jade.

Joys of Jade

The Three Cs (and Two Ts) of Jade

  • Color: For both jadeite and nephrite, green is the most valued color. The finest jadeite — almost transparent with a vibrant emerald-green color — is known as “imperial jade.”
  • Cut: While jade is rarely faceted like other gems, plain as well as intricate jade carvings are judged by their artistry.
  • Carat weight: Jadeite is generally sold by the piece rather than by weight. For top-quality imperial jadeite, slight size differences can make for large value differences.
  • Transparency: Jadeite’s transparency ranges from completely opaque to semi-transparent. The best jadeite is semi-transparent.
  • Texture: Jadeite has a smooth, even texture that makes people want to touch and hold the gem.

KPR 375-2

KPR 375-2Who doesn’t love the scene in When Harry Met Sally when Harry (Billy Crystal) races to tell Sally (Meg Ryan) he loves her on New Year’s Eve? (“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”)

Best. Marriage. Proposal. Ever.

New Year’s Eve is a wonderful time to ask the love of your life for her (or his) hand in marriage. The specialists at Eiseman Jewels have come up with five ideas to help you pull off the perfect NYE proposal.


If the two of you will be ringing in the New Year at the Big D NYE in Victory Park or the Fort Worth Sundance Square NYE Celebration, work your proposal into the crowd’s big countdown to 2015. As everyone begins to yell, “10, 9 …,” start saying why you love her/him so much with each count and then end No. 1 with a simple, “Will you marry me?”

Enlist Friends & Family

If you’re planning a New Year’s Eve party full of friends and family, instead of yelling “Happy New Year!” following the countdown to midnight, have everyone shout, “Will you marry me?” At which point you’ll be down on one knee with a ring.

Take It Easy

If your future fiancé hates crowds or parties, enjoy a celebration for two at home in front of the fireplace or at a luxe hotel such as the Omni, Ritz-Carlton or Gaylord Texan. Have champagne in a bucket cooling as well as some caviar or chocolate-dipped strawberries on hand. Then, at the stroke of midnight, pop the question.

A Surprise Inside

If you’ve made reservations at an elegant restaurant such as The Capital Grille, The French Room or Del Frisco for New Year’s Eve, enlist the wait staff to help with your proposal. It doesn’t have to entail the tried-and-true hiding the ring in a glass of champagne. Often an experienced waitperson has helped facilitate multiple marriage proposals in the past and will have creative ideas for surprising your soon-to-be fiancé.

Make a Resolution

Tell your future fiancé that you want the two of you to make resolutions for the New Year. On New Year’s Eve, find a quiet spot where each of you can share them. After she/he tells theirs, that’s when you read your list, making each one about your future fiancé, with the last one being, “Spend the rest of my life with you.”

Now that you have some ideas for how to propose this New Year’s Eve, make sure you have the perfect engagement ring from Eiseman Jewels at NorthPark Center in Dallas ready to dazzle. Cheers to 2015!


The holiday season is a festive, happy time, perfect for announcing your engagement. One creative way to broadcast your news is to tie it in to your holiday card.

The specialists at Eiseman Jewels have come up with a few ideas to help you add a new layer of excitement to your annual holiday greeting.


Double Duty

Many couples design a unique holiday card that has both their holiday sentiment and the engagement announcement in one place. If you decide to go this route, be sure the card has some holiday flair and is distinct from a typical engagement announcement or save-the-date card.

Something Extra

If you wish to send a traditional greeting card, you can just insert the engagement announcement inside. To take the engagement message a step further, consider inserting a photograph of the two of you with your Eiseman Jewels engagement ring visible or include a save-the-date refrigerator magnet. Inserting the announcement is an ideal solution if you only want select people to know about your engagement.

Surprise Inside

Another clever way to announce the engagement is to create an online video of you and your fiancé. Add the link to the card with a tease that is sure to get friends and family to go online. Write something to pique their curiosity such as: “We have a big surprise!” or “You won’t believe what Mary said next!”

The Right Wording

There are a variety of ways to announce your engagement and by combining it with your holiday card, you have the opportunity to have some fun with the wording and make it unique. Lovevsdesign.com has examples for a holiday engagement card wording:

On the first day of Christmas

My true love proposed to me!

I said yes! Now we’re getting married!

You’ve decorated the house,

Trimmed the tree,

Hung the stockings,

Now save the date!

Let’s all raise our glasses

To the coming new year

We’ll toast to this holiday season

With friends and good cheer!

We’re engaged!

Sending you lots of warm wishes

From the soon to be

Mr. & Mrs.!

There are a variety of ways to get out the good news about your engagement. Check out tinyprints.com and minted.com for more ideas. Congrats!


’Tis the season—engagement season, that is. The specialists at Eiseman Jewels have come up with a few ideas for a Dallas-area marriage proposal guaranteed to make this holiday season especially magical.


12 Days of Christmas at the Dallas Arboretum

Victorian Proposal

There are a variety of picturesque spots at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden to ask your best girl to marry you, but if you want to tie it into the season, consider planning a proposal during Holiday at the Arboretum: The 12 Days at Night. Running November 16 through January 4, the event features an elaborate collection of illuminated 26-foot gazebos filled with Victorian-costumed characters and whimsical animals made famous by Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” What better time than to get down on one knee for a traditional proposal? You might even think about seeing if you can incorporate the live carolers into your proposal. And don’t forget to ask someone nearby to take a picture of this special moment for both of you.

Stage Proposal

If your future fiancée loves theater or dance, think about planning a proposal at either the Texas Ballet Theatre’s “The Nutcracker” (November 28 through December 7) or Winspear Opera House’s “A Christmas Carol” (November 25 through December 27). Both performances will take place at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. See if you can get in touch with the stage manager to propose after the cast’s curtain call, or inquire about placing a special advertisement or note into the playbill.

Harmonious Proposal

There are number of great concerts coming into the Dallas area that would be perfect for making a proposal to any music-loving lady. At the American Airlines Center, The Black Keys play November 16, while Justin Timberlake and Usher will perform back-to-back on December 3 and 4, respectively. If it’s a Texas sound you want, try the Old 97’s at the Majestic Theatre on December 13, or the Holiday Showcase at The Kessler featuring Dallas native Madison King on December 14. It doesn’t hurt to try and get in touch with the band’s or venue’s management to see if they can help make your proposal extra-special.

Wild Proposal

If your girl is a nature lover, think about proposing at the Dallas Zoo or Dallas World Aquarium. Try asking if the zoo staff at one of the Wild Encounters Animal Presentations would participate in your proposal, or maybe enlist the help of the one or two of the divers at the aquarium to put on a proposal show with a waterproof “Will you marry me?” sign inside one of the largest tanks.

Proposal Hunt

Recruit some of your girlfriend’s friends and ask them to help send your fiancée-to-be on a treasure hunt that will end with your proposal. Get clever with your clues and how you deliver them, and then send her through Dallas to revisit all of the places the two of you hold close in your hearts, as well as some new spots like the Nasher Sculpture Garden and Turtle Creek.

Proposal in the Sky

Let everyone admire your proposal by hiring a pilot to fly a banner or write your question across the sky. There are a variety of business that offer this service in the Dallas area. To find one, just do a search online for “aerial advertising.”

And finally, don’t forget to stop by Eiseman Jewels in Dallas’ NorthPark Center to pick out a ring that will ensure her answer to your proposal will be “Yes!”
