We all at some point in our life have watched WWE.

Cena dropped to one knee and presented Bella with a beautiful engagement ring !!

While you gasp at the size of the stone that sits atop that beautiful ring, lets get a bit of background about the happy couple.

In real life, John Cena and Nikki Bella have been dating since November 2012. It’s not one of those situations where there is a fake romance between WWE characters but not between the people portraying them;this is real and it is happening!

This proposal had been heavily telegraphed on WWE television for months in advance, with Cena engaged in a storyline in which his girlfriend is repeatedly mocked because she wants to get married while her boyfriend, John Cena, does not.

All we at The Wedding Planners Diary can say is, we wish the newly engaged couple the best and hope their journey together is as exciting as their job!

All you need to know about a Solitaire Diamond!

The engagement ring is a dream most women have had since they were little girls, and while they do come in all materials and styles, the most popular and desirable by far is the solitaire ring. That lone diamond that commands presence and beauty and symbolizes the love of a lifetime.

But as romantic as the notion of that ring may be, choosing one can be equally confusing! We recommend doing a bit of research before entering your jewellery store, to avoid last minute confusion or a purchase that you later regret. After all, this is one ring that will be worn for a lifetime!

And when it comes to solitaires, there’s no escaping the technical basics of the 4Cs. Here we list them out for you to make a more informed decision.

The Cut

Diamond-Cuts-1

While the round diamond is by far the most popular, there are multiple other shapes in which a diamond can be bought, and more importantly, the price gets impacted by your choice as well. The round shape also happens to be the most expensive cut available in the market. You may want to try out something different, such as the Marquise, Princess cut, Pear, Heart or Emerald shape to see what suits the bride’s finger and looks the best.

Carat

We keep hearing the term carat used loosely regarding your jewellery’s quality, but what does this really mean? While a lot of people believe it has to do with your diamond’s size, it’s actually a measure of the weight of the stone. Hence, a 1 carat diamond would not come in a standard size, but varies on the basis of the cut and shape as well. Based on the carat measure of your diamond, you could be shelling out anywhere between Rs. 50,000 to 2 lakhs for your precious stone!

One of the methods to bring the ring of your dreams a little closer to your budget is to shave off a tiny amount of cents (1 carat is made of a 100 cents) from your diamond. 10 cents reduced does not affect the size or look of your diamond significantly to the naked eye, but definitely impacts the price at which it is sold.

Colour

Believe it or not, there are multiple colour ranges for your diamond, and not all are pure white and sparkly! The range starts from D, which is the rare absolutely colourless range, and heads all the way to Z, the latter of which have a slight yellow tinge. Not surprisingly, D-F are the most expensive range of diamonds and the price goes down as the colour changes. Makes sure you ask your jeweller exactly what colour range your diamond falls in!

Of course, this colour spectrum does not include the extremely rare pink and blue diamonds, which cost much more than a D diamond!

Clarity

Last but not the least, the fourth C – Clarity, is something inherent to a diamond, and cannot be altered by human intervention. As with the colour chart, there is also grading of clarity starting from FL-IF, VVS1-VVS2, VS1-VS2, SI1-SI2, I1, I2 & I3. The clarity grade depends on, if the diamond is flawless without any inclusions (FL-IF), and the amount of imperfections visible under magnification of the naked eye, with I2-I3 standing for an imperfect diamond. Again, an FL diamond would by far be the most expensive, with your price range reducing with each grade. Rings can fit a little better into your budget by a small change from VVS to VS, which might not really show as much of a difference in quality to the naked eye, but makes a much bigger difference in price!

The Ring

Some people prefer selecting their diamond separately, and then having it set into a ring of their choice. Either way, the band is also an important choice along with the diamond. While gold is beautifully classic, platinum is classy and new-age. Do think about what you prefer, in terms of your skin tone and the look of your ring. Moreover, the design of the band can completely define how your ring looks. Whether you want a plain band or a prong setting, do see different catalogues to get a better idea of your dream ring.

 

Certification

We would also suggest looking for a certified diamond, to ensure quality of purchase. There are multiple agencies such as the IGI & GIA who offer certifications, so make sure you ask your jewellery store manager for this!

So put on your research hat, decide your budget and see what specifications you prefer, because the final price of your ring is going to be dependent on all the qualities mentioned above. Moreover, ensure you know what you’re buying, and don’t get duped into purchasing a lower quality product for a higher price!

Put a Ring on It! – Why Engagement Rings Mark the Beginning of a Glorious Journey

Put a Ring on It! – Why Engagement Rings Mark the Beginning of a Glorious Journey

If you wish to pop the question, you need to do it right. A proposal symbolizes a commitment to your better half and promises the coming of many wonderful things. An engagement ring is the essence of a proposal, so you need to pick one she won’t be able to refuse! Let’s have a look at some breathtaking styles trending this season.

The Diamond

Let’s begin with the most obvious. Diamonds have been the most popular choice of ring doers for decades now, and these sparkling rocks aren’t scheduled to go out of fashion anytime soon. For all the old-school charmers out there, nothing says ‘Marry Me’ like a diamond-studded proposal. Do it the traditional way with a splendid solitaire or cushion-, emerald-, pear- or oval-cut ring. However, if you’re looking for a fresher feel to kick-start your marital voyage, try a flower-shaped or rose gold ring to showcase your love. Whether you go classy or trendy, you can’t go wrong with a diamond!

The Halo ring

Halo rings are an upcoming trend that’s here to stay. They’re basically made up of a center stone surrounded by a circle (or ‘halo’) of small diamonds. The most popular among these rings are sapphire-encrusted halo rings, made famous by the Duchess of Cambridge. They are a stunning alternative to diamond rings and are an opportunity to truly mix and match your taste for fancy gems. Another very popular fad of the new year is to combine the halo and cushion-cut styles for a truly regal-looking ornament. Yet another variation is the double halo ring, which has two circles of diamonds surrounding the centre stone. These styles are a really good choice for those who wish for a dazzling proposal weapon that’ll also go easy on the pocket.

Rose gold

Rose gold rings haven’t reached they’re peak in popularity yet, but they’re definitely gaining favor among brides-to-be. This lovely pink metal is attaining fame for adding an antique element and unexpected twist to contemporary-styled rings to make them truly exquisite. It can be paired with pinkish hue diamonds; it’s bound to make your fiancé-to-be swoon! However, for a truly memorable combination to earn you some serious brownie points with the better half, we suggest you pair rose gold with the pretty morganite, a pinkish gem (literally) of a beryl. Rest assured that these timeless drops of beauty are sure to remain in vogue for a long, long time.

Antiques

Antique rings are for women who appreciate the intricate things in life. If your partner is one with the times yet traditional, if she’s individualistic yet likes to be pampered, if she believes more is less and minimal is classy, antique rings are your stairway to heaven! Not only are original antique rings show stoppers in every right, they usually have a fascinating story attached to them for added appeal. They’re financially viable yet classy options, a truly amazing gift for women who have an appreciation for history.

There’s so much mixing and matching and searching and combining you can do to make your proposal ring unique. Engagements are a prelude to your partner of what your future will be like, so show her you care in the best way you possibly can. Be it modest or extravagant, an engagement ring is a thing of value because of the love invested in it. So in the wise words of the Beatles, always, always remember that money can’t buy you love! Happy shopping.

Wedding Rings

Wedding Rings

Wedding rings today are a billion dollar sentiment of love, but no one can really say for sure when this age old tradition actually started. Some believe that the oldest recorded exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt, about 4800 years ago.

The circle is the symbol of eternity, and to give a woman a ring signifies never-ending and immortal love. According to  a tradition believed to have been derived from the Romans, the wedding ring is worn on the left hand ring finger because there was thought to be a vein in the finger, referred to as the ‘Vena Amoris’ or the ‘Vein of Love’ said to be directly connected to the heart.

We picked up some of our personal favorites from the types of bands doing the rounds in the wedding circuit.
