Indian bangles can have the most elegant look
Glass bangles have been hugely popular for American weddings recently. Not only for bridal jewellery, but they are also popular for bridesmaids as well. Consider that glass bangles had their fashion origins based upon wedding jewellery for brides. Think about how nice it would be to get bridesmaids jewellery that you can actually wear after the wedding!
The hottest look right now is to have every bridesmaid wear a different set of bangles though all in the same colors. Let the bridesmaids choose whether to wear a large set or a small set, glittery or subtle, depending on her personal tastes. Indian bangles can have the most elegant look. Just about every color under the sun is available to create the perfect match for the wedding colors. From dressing up for dinner to black tie events, glass bangles have a place.
Taking care of gemstones
Steam cleaning is quite effective but can result in thermal shock because of the often-quick temperature change. It can result in cracking because parts of the stone are forced to expand at different times. Most gemstones can be immersed in a solution of mild detergent and warm water.
Likewise with pearls; although soaking can result in discoloration, so this should always be avoided. After soaking for a few minutes, gently clean the stone with a soft brush. Pearls should be dried after cleaning, using a soft towel, and air-blown dry. Extra care should be taken to remove dirt from the bottom of the setting, a common place for build-up to occur.
Diamond Jewellery and diamond shapes
Study the variety of diamond shapes online to see which one you like most. Make sure you understand the difference between karats and carats before shopping for diamonds. Cubic zirconium looks like a real diamond, but is not. A karat measures the purity of gold. 24k is the purest gold. A carat measures fine gemstones and the weight of diamonds. Each has its own unique brilliance.
Larger diamonds, such as those on diamond engagement rings, will usually carry a greater weight in carats than smaller stones, such as those found in diamond tennis bracelets. Look for diamond fine jewelry in which the diamond itself has a carat weight. Diamonds may be round brilliant, oval, tiffany, marquise, pear-shaped, heart-shaped, cushion cut , emerald cut, trilliant, radiant, or princess cut. Make sure the diamond is not cubic zirconium.
