Avril Lavigne ROCKS her Diamond Anniversary Ring from Chris Kroeger

Avril Lavigne’s hubby, Chris Kroeger, sure knows how to up the bling factor!

Chris presented his wife of one-year with a sparkly 17 carat Emerald cut Diamond Anniversary Ring – that is a whopping 3 carats larger than the massive 14 carat Pear cut Engagement Ring stunner he proposed to her with.

The Anniversary gift left Avril speechless…

Last Thursday (in a tweet that’s since been removed) Avril shared this adorable picture of the pair and THE RING with her Twitter followers, captioned… 

“I still can’t believe my 1 year anniversary gift, 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby.”

The Engagement Ring Hot List – Issue 2

Welcome to the second edition of the MiaDonna HOT LIST – a selection of favorite Engagement Rings and Wedding Sets from MiaDonna Personal Shopper, Linley. 

If you missed the first edition with CEO and Founder, Anna-Mieke Anderson, click here to read it.



Linley: MiaDonna Personal Shopper

 

Linley

“My style is a blend of Antique and Classic. While I like the look of a delicate design, I prefer something more metal heavy and sturdy to keep up with my active lifestyle. For a wedding set, I prefer a non-matching engagement ring and wedding band so each could be worn separately but still look beautiful when worn together.”

 

1. Coco Engagement Ring – Starting at $2,165

 

Coco Engagement Ring

“Normally, halo style engagement rings are not my personal style. However, with the oval cut blue sapphire center stone the ring was transformed into more of an antique look reminiscent of Princess Diana’s ring which I absolutely love.

This ring would be perfect for special events or a night out with friends.”

2. Julie Three Stone Engagement Ring – Starting at $1,415

 

Julie Three Stone Engagement Ring

 

“This is by far my favorite three stone ring. There are so many great details; hand carved filigree on either side of the band, channel bead set diamonds, and the ability to choose any size or shape center stone.

My favorite version of this ring is with a 1.5ct princess cut Diamond Hybrid® center stone.”

 

Shop this Ring

 

 

3. Hayley Accented Engagement Ring – Starting at $2,337

 

Hayley Accented Ring

 

“The Hayley is a classic design that looks beautiful for any occasion. It has a secure basket setting to hold the center stone and any band could be paired with this ring.

I also love the fact it has a timeless setting that will never go out of style.”

 

Shop this Ring

 

 

4. Infinity Wedding Set – Starting at $2,443

 

Infinity Wedding Set

 

“Of all our wedding sets, the twisted shank on the Infinity catches my eye the most. The wedding band both compliments the engagement ring and enhances the overall design.

In particular, I love this set with a band on either side for a little added “bling”.”

The Engagement Ring Hot List!

With so many beautiful rings to choose from, how on Earth can you choose just one. From stunning Solitaires to beautiful Bridal Sets, there are hundreds of stunning rings only a click away.

We know ring shopping is no easy task, so to help you narrow your selection down we’re sharing our HOT LIST for 2014.

This weeks HOT LIST comes from MiaDonna CEO and Founder, Anna-Mieke. 

We hope you enjoy!

 



Anna-Mieke: MiaDonna Founder & CEO

 

MiaDonna Founder & CEO

“Trying to pick just a few rings from MiaDonna is a difficult task! I have designed hundreds of rings and they all have a special place in my heart.  The great news is that we no longer have to stop at one ring. The price point of the Diamond Hybrid lets you have multiple rings, one for every outfit :)”

 

1. Kat Engagement Ring – Starting at $3,462

 

Kat Engagement Ring from Miadonna

“I love how romantic and elegant this ring is. The oval cut center stone is so vintage and it is spectacular in the two toned rose and yellow gold. I would also not wear a band with the Kat. I would have a completely separate band for those times that I need something smaller. I like an eternity band like the Baby Tyra.

Shop this Ring

 

 

2. Novu Wedding Set – Starting at $2,508

 

Novu Wedding Ring Set

 

“The Novu Wedding Set is inspired from the Novo tiffany set, but so much better because it is conflict free and about a zillion dollars less expensive.

I love the classic lines of this ring and the versatility of the center stone shape. Since it has a prong head you can set it with any shape center stone and in a few years when you want a change we can set a different diamond shape in the ring for you.”

 

Shop this Ring

 

 

3. Heirloom Antique Engagement Ring – Starting at $1,687

 

Heirloom Antique Engagement Ring

 

“The Heirloom with a radiant cut Diamond Hybrid as a center stone is just stunning. You can get lost staring into this diamond shape. So beautiful!”

 

Shop this Ring

 

 

4. Reflection Three Stone Engagement Ring – Starting at $1,597

 

Refection Three Stone Engagement Ring

 

“This ring is a head turner! The amazing color and clarity grades of our Diamond Hybrid is something you do not see very often in an emerald cut earth-mind diamond.”

The MiaDonna Guide to ‘Choosing the Perfect Diamond Size’ for your Engagement Ring

Have you picked out the perfect Engagement Ring or Wedding Ring Set for your loved one, but found yourself asking…

“What diamond size should I choose?”

First, keep in mind that how big the stone size or carat weight does not determine how much you love your significant other or are loved by your partner. It might be hard to image, but at MiaDonna we feel that BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER – choosing the best stone size is relative to personal style, stature, hand size, setting preference and budget. 

 


 

Here are a few of our favorite tips for ‘Choosing the Perfect Diamond Size’ for your Engagement Ring

 

MiaDonna Diamond Sizes on Ladies size 6.5

? TIP #1: The standard size…

  • The 1.0 carat center stone used to be the standard “desired” size, now we are seeing the 1.50 and 2.0 carat center stones gaining demand.

? TIP #2: Consider the following…

  • Does your partner have an active lifestyle or career? For example, someone who works with their hands or enjoys active hobbies may be better suited for a smaller center stone.
  • Does your partner wear any other jewelry? If they do then they might prefer a larger center stone, however, if they don’t then something more understated may match their personal style better.

? TIP #3: Think about your budget…

  • Does your partner like diamonds? Many eco-conscious consumers might like the look of a diamond, but not the conflict associated – so options like MiaDonna’s Man Made Diamonds, Diamond Hybrids® and Lab Created Gemstones would be the perfect choice for your eco-bride-to-be.
  • The great thing about the affordability of MiaDonna’s Man Made Diamonds and Diamond Hybrids® is that you won’t likely be stuck compromising your preferred stone size because of budget restraints.

? OUR RECOMMENDATION ?

  • If you have hands smaller than 6.5 ring size you might want to consider a 1.0 carat or 1.5 carat. If you have hands larger than a 6.5 ring size you might want to consider a 2.0 carat. We don’t normally recommend anything over a 2 carat, but again, stone size is about personal preference.
  • Keep in mind that the smaller the finger, the larger the diamond will appear. A 1.5-carat diamond solitaire looks much larger on a size 4 finger than a size 8.

Man Made Diamonds

White Lab Created Diamonds are the hardest color to produce and also take the longest to grow. The largest Man Made White Diamonds being produced today get upwards of nearly 1.30 carat. However, the average size available and the average size offered by MiaDonna is typically between 0.50 to 1.0 carats, mostly in the Round and Princess shapes. If you prefer colored diamonds MiaDonna also offers Fancy YellowBlue and Pink diamonds, ranging in sizes up to 2.0 carats. Learn more about Man Made Diamonds

Diamon Hybrids®

The world famous MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® is the most affordable, beautiful and scientifically advanced, diamond infused, diamond alternative ever created and is available for only $358 per carat, no matter what size or shape you choose. Each stone is individually cut by hand, guaranteed to be a D-F in color, VVS1-VS2 in clarity and available in sizes up to 6.0 carats depending on shape. Learn more about MiaDonna Diamond Hybrids.

The 4 C’s of Man-Made Diamonds

Like snowflakes, no two Man Made Diamonds are exactly alike and learning how to tell the difference between them can be daunting and stressful. However, if you take just a few minutes to learn The 4 C’s, purchasing a MiaDonna & Co. Man Made Diamond can be a very positive experience.

Mid 20th century, the GIA created the first agreed-upon standard by which diamonds could be described and judged by their Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat Weight. Creating The 4 C’s meant that diamond customers could now know exactly what they were purchasing and that diamond quality could be communicated. Today, the 4 C’s of Diamond Quality is the universal method for assessing any diamond, anywhere in the world.

Man Made Diamond Cut Diagram

1. Color

For colorless diamonds there can still be a variation in color. On a scale from D (colorless) to X (light yellow). A “colorless” rated diamond allows more light to pass through the stone making it sparkle more and increases the overall value. Fancy colored diamonds are not graded on the same scale as colorless diamonds and are rarer, making them more valuable and expensive.

Man Made Diamond Color Scale

2. Carat Weight

Carat weight measures how big the stone is. Appearances may be tricky, while two stones may look equal in table size, or looking down on the stone, their carat weight may be different because of their depth. Alternately, two stones may have equal carat weights, but one may appear smaller when looking down at it (the table size). For help on determining the appropriate carat weight or stone size click here.

3. Clarity

The relative measurement of a gemstone’s inclusions and blemishes. Sometimes clarity is referred to as purity; in Europe, quality. Most diamonds contain some inner flaws, often referred to as inclusions, which occur during the formation process. The visibility, number and size of these inclusions determine what is called the clarity of a diamond. The better clarity of a diamond delivers greater brilliance and increases the value or price of the stone. Diamond clarity is measure on a scale from Flawless (F, IF) to Included (I1, I2, and I3).

Man Made Diamond Clarity Chart

4. Cut

Probably the most important quality of a diamond, yet least understood of the 4 C’s. Cut is imperative in determining how light passes through the stone – creating the fire, brilliance, and sparkle. Not to be confused with the shape the cut includes the shape and the entire anatomy of the diamond and refers to the combined optical properties of a diamond; the proportions, symmetry and finish.

5. The 5th C -MiaDonna’s Passion

At MiaDonna & Co. we consider the 5th C to be MORE important than ANY other consideration when purchasing a diamond or precious gem.

The 5th C refers to “conflict-free”. A diamond is considered “conflict” if its profit is used to fund war, or it is mined or produced under unethical conditions. At MiaDonna and The Greener Diamond we define a conflict diamond as any diamond that is unsustainable, thereby contributing to a negative impact in any or all of the following ways;

Environment: The mining and production of earth-mined diamonds.

Ethical: Diamond mining communities held captive to a life of poverty and violence through their dependency on the diamond trade and consumers who unknowingly contribute to the power and proliferance of conflict diamonds and are subjected to exorbitant prices as a result of illegal price fixing.

Economy: A monopolized industry with a supply chain that is neither fairly equitable to the communities purveying earth-mined diamonds or to the consumers purchasing them.

Diamond certification processes came to fruition as a way to quell consumer concerns and to help stop the trade of conflict diamonds. Buyer beware: Unfortunately the problem persists and many “Diamond Certification” claims cannot be guaranteed. For a guide on buying conflict-free click here.

TheGreenerDiamond

Here at MiaDonna, we strive to teach our customer’s as much as possible in preparation for their shopping.  A knowledgeable customer will be much more confident about this purchase and happier in the end.
