This Spring’s Jewelry Fashion has been revealed and will start hitting the stores soon if they haven’t already. There are many fashion tips to enhance your look this spring. In case, you aren’t privy to the fashion blogs, this spring jewelry collection will be fun, colorful and bold.
Jewelry fashion is just as important as fashion is. Jewelry is used to accentuate outfits and bring them to live with complementing designs or vibrant pieces. If you haven’t caught a glimpse of this season’s collection, don’t worry we have some tips for you.
Colorful Jewelry is IN!
Forget about the basic gold or platinum pieces. While many of these pieces are timelessly classy, this spring is about color. The more color the better! Have some fun with our Amethyst or Topaz jewelry. Not only are they vibrantly beautiful, but they also fit right into the trend this Spring.
The SOLO Earring
This Spring season is all about being different and trying something unoriginal. The Solo Earring was featured in a lot of top designer fashion runways, like Marc Jacobs. Wearing a singular earring is a statement regarding the bold and trend decision to consciously only wear one earring that is enough for two. A simple diamond stud just won’t do here.
The Bigger The Chain, The Better
Chains are going anywhere, anytime soon, in fact, they just got bigger. Drastically big chains are in. Wearing a simpler outfit in order to let the chain shine, is what you will see this Spring. These exaggerated chains also have a sort of design or focal point to present a softer tone and feel.
Pearls and Spring are Besties
Pearls are always fitting for Spring. They tend to be a common Spring favorite, but how they are worn changes with the new season. From classic designs to bold abstract, Pearls provide a softness to the designs of this season. You will never go wrong wearing pearls in the Spring.
Big Hoops are Back
Did hoop earrings really ever leave?! It is a question that many of us are asking, but just like the pearl, hoops are favorite that continues to evolve with the time. These are big hoops like you haven’t seen them before. Gemstone encrusted, Chunky, plain or thin hoop earrings continue to be a monumental trend this Spring.

Whether you are shopping for diamond jewelry, a diamond engagement ring or just loose diamonds, knowing what you are looking for within the 4 c’s looks different in person than on paper.
Once you have located a jeweler you can trust, who sells conflict-free diamonds, and you narrowed the diamond search down to a GIA approved, triple excellent diamonds (excellent polish, excellent symmetry, and excellent cut), and a carat (weight) range of your choice. How do you tell the authenticity? How do you examine diamonds properly?
The most educated way to evaluate the diamonds you have chosen is to view them under an ideal scope image. An Ideal scope image will show you just how much light the diamond is reflecting. When examining the image pay special attention to all areas especially red, black, and white.
What do the different colored areas represent?
The Dark red areas are parts of the diamond’s face that reflect lots of light; that’s good. That’s what you want to see. But don’t be confused by the light red areas as being the same as the darker red. The light red areas reflect less light than dark red areas which means the less light red areas than another is more desirable.
Black areas are parts of the diamond that reflect no light. Depending on their arranged pattern, the black areas could indicate the diamond has attractive contrasts. Attractive dark areas may include, for example, narrow, symmetrical star patterns. The borders of these said dark areas should be blotchy, but precise. Precise borders in dark are more attractive contract on the face of the diamond. The Diamond’s brilliance stands out with little to no contrast to the diamond’s face.
White areas are not the ideal color. White areas are not good because that means they don’t reflect any light. The more white areas the less brilliance and vibrant shine the diamond will have. Rather the opposite of our assumption.
This is basic knowledge when using an ideal scope and apply it when you go to make a diamond purchase. Any jeweler that you can trust will be more than happy to show you an Ideal- Scope image. Diamonds and diamond jewelry is a big purchase you want to be sure about. This is one to ensure you are putting a visual on your knowledge.
Diamonds are one of the most popular and classic gemstones. They are considered precious for a reason and provide a classic, chic style. Aside from their exciting appeal, diamonds are great for jewelry because they are sturdy. People love to have diamond jewelry as they generally believe it is alright to wear every day without much wear and tear. This is relatively true as diamonds are strong, in fact, when colliding with other hard materials, with the latter being the one breaking. ( However, this isn’t a theory we suggest you test.)
But while diamond accessories are tough and resistant, they will not last forever and are still treated with care. Diamonds will get chipped or crack. Without careful scrutiny, diamonds are sold with existing inclusions, thin girdles, and shallow crowns. Some are even poorly proportioned which increases the risk of physical damage when subjected to sufficient force along with daily wear and tear.
Let’s check out a few tips for about basic diamond jewelry repair:
Clean Your Diamonds with Safe, approved methods
Clean your diamond jewelry with warm water, approved cleaning solution (mild detergent soap, if you don’t have) and a soft bristle brush. This will help reach the dirt and grime in hard to reach areas. Don’t forget to wipe dry with a microfiber, soft cloth.
Keep diamonds away from harsh chemicals
Diamonds are not invincible and harsh chemicals like household cleaning products, are their kryptonite. While diamonds are tough against hard substances, they tend to lose against chemicals. Even basic household chemicals like ammonia and bleach can damage diamonds. Remember to remove your diamond jewelry before cleaning or using any substance.
Bring it in for an annual cleaning
Get your diamond jewelry cleaned professionally once a year. This will help keep your diamonds bright, shiny and in tip-top shape. Professionally cleans are so important to maintaining your jewelry to ensure they keep their vibrancy. It provides detailed cleaning that can’t be done or seen with the naked eye. You don’t want to deal with an emergency repair that could have been prevented.
Emergency Diamond Ring repair
If you noticed that something isn’t right with your diamond jewelry, get it fixed asap. Don’t continue to wear the piece. You want to minimize the need for re-cutting or re-polishing your jewelry. This could cause a major change in the diamond’s appearance and reduction in carat size. It is up to you which diamond jewelry repair you choose. It can help if your diamond jewelry has insurance to cover up the cost.

The diamond derives from a rock. Most diamonds on the market today, derive from deep in the Earth’s mantle after a long patient process over nearly 1 to 3.3 billion years. 87 to 118 miles under the Earth’s crust, with temperatures ranging from 650 and 2,370 °F mixed with pressures forty-five thousand to sixty thousand times atmospheric pressure if just enough energy to turn carbon into diamonds.
Most diamonds are created when carbon becomes trapped in the planet’s interior at the time of its formation. However, some diamonds are created organic material that naturally gets pushed down from the Earth’s surface to the depths perfect for a diamond to form.
These great depths contain rocks called xenoliths, these are what diamonds are formed in. An earth-changing even must take place in order for these rocks to come to the earth’s surface. Deep volcanic eruptions, transfer the xenoliths to the earth’s surface. These types of eruptions are rare and create deep but thin craters called volcanic pipes. When the volcano erupts, the volcanic pipes open up and eject material to the surface of the earth. Within volcanoes’ igneous rock, you will find xenoliths that will naturally becomes surrounded by rocks and debris from surrounding areas through wind, rain, and erosion.
Natural diamonds form under very high temperature and pressure. These high temperatures are only achieved within the earth’s mantle(90 miles (150 kilometers) below the surface @ 2000 degrees Fahrenheit (1050 degrees Celsius))
Harzburgitic, is a type of diamond that is formed from inorganic carbon and found deep in the Earth’s mantle.
Eclogitic diamonds are different as they are organic carbon from organic detritus that has been crammed down from the surface of the Earth’s crust.
Diamonds are very rare and precious due to the years and the extensive process it takes for a diamond to be formed and brought above the earth’s surface. Knowing how a diamond was made is just as important as knowing where it came from. Diamonds are formed all over the world, each unique to its destination.

In honor of our ‘”Fall Fire” event that is taking place for the whole month of September, we would like to share a few tips on how to pick the perfect loose Diamond or Gemstone for you. As a jeweler you can trust, understanding and feeling comfortable with your purchase is part of loving your piece of jewelry. At Master Jewelers, we understand that jewelry is a representation of a moment or feeling in time. It is more than a material item.
Buying loose diamond and gemstones comes with a meticulous process. In fact, after 20 years of experience in the jewelry industry, we have perfected selecting loose diamonds and gemstones. All of our diamonds and gemstones receive a thorough and intricate examination before making their appearance in our showroom. Quality is everything! You can also rest assured that all of our diamonds are conflict-free. Here is further reading on how we select our diamonds and the importance of conflict-free diamonds.
Knowing key information about buying loose gemstones is important, but so is knowing what you want and like. While you can somewhat rely on the jeweler’s expertise to ensure the quality of your purchase, only you know what is right for you.
Here are a few things to consider when buying a loose diamond.
- Know what “Carat” weight range you are looking for: This should be the first consideration for you. It is essential to understand that a carat’s weight heavily affects the price of the diamond. Picking the size of the carat is the main element to your design. Not all gemstones will be measured in carats, but size is as equally important. Size of any gemstone weighs in heavy in regards to price.
- Chose your ideal color and optimal clarity grade: This is another price indicator for all diamonds and gemstones. Color and clarity of the grade both dictate the authenticity of the stone. The size doesn’t matter without the value of the stone.
- Diamond shape: What diamond shape best represents you? The shape of the diamond is all about personal taste and the design you are trying to achieve.
When it comes to diamond shopping, there are a lot of buzz words that are often tossed around that you may hear. Shape, clarity, cut, color and more add to the unique vocabulary of jewelry shopping. Many jewelers often boast that they sell ethically-sourced diamonds. “Conflict-free” is another term you might hear while deciding on an engagement ring, diamond necklace or something in between. Between all of the lingo you might come across either on a website or in a jewelry showroom, it can be hard to decipher just what everything means and how exactly jewelers are using these terms to define their product offerings.
Diamonds have been a highly valuable commodity for hundreds of years. In countries where diamonds are mined, diamonds can play a part in civil wars and internal conflict, as people fight over control of these valuable, precious stones. Diamonds can be a cause of civil war and significant division and bloodshed within a country. It is important to ask questions when it comes to the diamond you are considering buying. Without asking questions, you may indirectly be supporting unsafe, unethical mining practices and political unrest in foreign lands.
So what questions should you ask when considering purchasing a diamond? Without getting into the weeds, there are a couple simple questions you should ask that any honest, reputable jeweler will be able to answer. First, ask your jeweler if the diamonds they are selling are ethically sourced. When a diamond is “ethically sourced,” it means that the diamond has been mined in conditions that aren’t affiliated with civil war and bloodshed. Many jewelers sell diamonds that are not ethically sourced because they may be able to get them cheaper or have lowered standards when it comes to quality. Diamonds that are not surrounded by violence are considered to be ethically sourced.
Ethically sourced diamonds also meet labor laws and environmental standards. Ethically sourced diamonds cannot be mined using child labor or pose serious environmental threats. A second question to ask is if the diamonds are conflict-fee. While they are similar, “ethically-sourced” and “conflict-free” describe two slightly different aspects of the mining and sourcing process. The term “conflict-free” describes specifically when diamonds are not financing a war or a rebel group within a country.
It is important to talk with your jeweler about what types of diamonds they sell and how they were sourced. At Master Jewelers, we strive to purchase only “conflict-free” diamonds and source precious metals from “environmental-conscious” foundries. We sell Bright Crystal Diamonds, a premier and exclusive brand of diamonds that follow a clear path, coming directly from the mines, passing an extensive testing and refining process and ending up in a stunning diamond ring.
At Master Jewelers, we care not only about the experience of our customers, but we care about our jewelry pieces from start to finish as well. We follow along with the journey our diamonds take, from the mine to your hands. Stop by our showroom in Indianapolis today or take a look at some of our one-of-a-kind collection online. Discover the difference about what makes our diamonds unique and unlike any other. Besides being ethically sourced and conflict-free, they are some of the brightest diamonds in the world.
