By Judi Kipner Wolf , Monday, March 12, 2012
You’ve got the man of your dreams and you’re wearing that amazing big diamond of your dreams! You’re feeling on top of the world! It’s the rock that gets oohs and aah’s wherever you go. The one that makes you sit up straighter, walk taller and distracts you when you drive! Go ahead and flash that bling proudly and enjoy every minute of it, but above all, keep it safe and secure. There may even be occasions when you will want to tuck away your huge diamond ring and a beautiful eternity band would be just the ticket. Some people feel that big diamonds are not appropriate to wear for their particular job or when doing extensive traveling.
In addition, there are some activities which are definitely not conducive to big bling bling. If you’re very active, work out, or garden that’s great, but not the best time to wear huge diamond engagement rings. Watch out when you are washing dishes or taking showers. We have heard some sad and tearful stories of precious jewelry going down the drain, never to be found again. I speak from painful personal experience on this one! Believe me; the idea of your treasured big diamond being swallowed up in the city sewage system is not a pleasant thought! Also, excessive heat and cold affects the size of your fingers and should be considered when wearing huge diamond rings.
Some of us just don’t want our precious huge diamonds to be out of sight, and for those times a possible solution could be to put it on a chain around your neck. Also, if you work with your hands a lot then we suggest some settings where big diamonds will sit lower on the finger, such as the Legato, knife-edge, or basket mountings. Our experts at Whiteflash can suggest these and many other setting solutions to make you feel more secure when lugging around those gigantic sparkling baubles. Hey, it’s a tough job but we know you can do it.
“Beauty versus Practicality”, common sense rules the day. So enjoy wearing that huge diamond, it’s a gorgeous symbol of eternal love. Keep it and enjoy it forever. No matter what changes life may bring, your diamond engagement ring will be there through all the years and will it never lose its magic.
