How-To Propose With Custom-Made Confidence!

Sunday, March 5th, 2017


Since the perfect proposal begins with the perfect ring, the fear of choosing the wrong engagement ring can be debilitating. While you may find the exact engagement ring that you’re looking for displayed in a showcase, opt for custom design if you want to have a surefire confidence that your intended will love the ring you present! With custom design, you’re more in control of both the original concept as well as the finished product. It’s also a way to ensure that the ring you present reflects the uniqueness of your loved one and the bond you share together.

GET THE DETAILS: Having an idea of what your intended likes ensures that you create a ring that will be pleasing no matter your budget range. Have you been given any hints about the diamond shape, setting, metal type and carat size that would make the perfect ring? If so, listen; because you are now equipped with one of the most important “Honey-Do” lists you will ever have.

Knowing what you want will also make your meeting with a jeweler more productive. It’s not absolutely necessary, but, if possible, bring in a picture or drawing of your desired ring. Remember what they say: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”Because the ultimate goal is to create a ring that she loves, other than getting a “No” when you pop-the-question, there’s nothing quite as bad for you and for her as presenting a bad ring that will never get worn.

GET THE LANGUAGE DOWN: Before beginning your engagement ring journey, be sure to familiarize yourself with the “Four C-s”(Carat, Cut, Color and Clarity). These are the absolute diamond basics that every shopper should know. Set aside a bit of time to do your “Four C’s” research BEFORE heading out to make your ring purchase. And, consider this; there’s also a “Fifth C” Coined by the experts at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, the “Fifth C” stands for Cost. Here’s where that comes in…

GET THE BEST FOR YOUR BUDGET: Cost will naturally be more of an issue for some than others. If budget and cost figure very heavily into your plan, then consider opting for a higher quality diamond that may be smaller in carat size but is of a higher quality. You can always up-size the diamond later; and, a quality diamond will be worth more when you’re ready to trade up. An expert jeweler can advise you on choosing the highest quality diamond that fits within your budget range. Another good idea – whether or not you have budget constraints – is to work with a jeweler who is also a direct diamond importer. Doing this ensures that you are not paying extra money for the scouting services of a middleman.

Choosing the right jeweler will make all the difference in the impact that your ring will have. The right jeweler will not only help you to create the best and highest quality ring for the budget that you indicate, but, also, he or she will include you in every step of the design process – even presenting you with a wax model of your desired ring before setting the stones or casting it in the metal of your choice. This “no-surprises” step in the custom design process ensures your satisfaction with the final outcome of the ring – thus boosting your pre-proposal confidence.

There’s something to be said about those who wear custom designed jewelry. They’re unique, unlike anyone else — because custom pieces lend an air of distinction that mass-produced pieces simply cannot.

For your next fine jewelry purchase, tell the world something special about you or the person you’re buying for, with a one-of-a-kind custom piece. And, forget the myth that custom design is always more expensive. It can actually be much more affordable than you think!

Your choice of jeweler makes all the difference in the beauty and the cost of your brilliant new piece. Direct your search to lead you to a jeweler noted for excellence in both design and price. Take a look at their featured collections to make sure that he or she designs with the sort of flair and details that appeal to you. And – most importantly – find out what previous customers are saying about them.

One smart and highly-reviewed choice is the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, voted “Favorite Jewelry Store” by the L.A. Daily News. In business for more than 40 years, they offer one of L.A’s largest selections of certified diamonds, with discounts often at 50-75% below retail. As the exclusive home of the Signature “Johnny N” Designer Line – and – known as the “engagement ring superstore,” the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City showroom offers clients 1000s of stunning showcase choices. But, for those looking for something truly special, their reputation as custom design specialists has made them a sort of go-to hub for those who want true masterpiece design at surprisingly affordable prices. In fact, customer referrals are their number one form of business. Here’s why:

#1. They Skip The Middleman. You Save. Being a direct diamond importer means that they are skilled and experienced enough to scout, source and hand select diamonds themselves as opposed to buying them from a middleman. That also means that they can pass those savings onto you. Typically, custom design work can cost up to three times more than manufactured pieces, but, the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City offers certified diamonds, precious gemstones and custom design labor services to clients for 50-75% below retail pricing.

#2. Expert Work Takes Less Time. You Save. Depending on the intricacy of the piece and the expertise of the Jeweler creating it, a beautifully-designed piece can take anywhere from one week to six weeks to complete. The expert team at Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City uses their more than 40 years of design experience to cut down that time and pass the labor savings directly on to you.

#3. They Put You In the Driver’s Seat. You Save. Some say custom design is risky because you will not see or have access to the piece to make changes before the final outcome. At the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, the designers work with you during each phase of design to make sure it meets your approval before completing the finished piece, including wax mock-ups, length adjustments and re-sizing, when appropriate. It’s not all about the nickels and dimes. Staying in control also saves you from the headache of worrying about the final outcome of your piece!

September Birthstone: Precious Blue Sapphire

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

The richly blue Sapphire is the birthstone of those fortunate enough to be born in September. Giving gifts of jewelry in signature birthstone gems is an age old tradition. Have you ever wondered when it started?

As far as we can tell, the first century Jewish historian Josephus introduced the idea of an association between the twelve stones in Aaron’s breastplate and the twelve months of the year and their zodiac signs. Also, in the eighth and ninth century, Christian religious documents associating a particular gemstone with an apostle were written as a nod to the book of Revelation reference that “their name would be inscribed on the Foundation Stones, and his virtue.” Eventually, it became common to keep twelve stones and wear one a month. The tradition of wearing only a single birthstone, as is commonly done today, is thought to be only a few centuries old, and now is more a matter of aesthetics as opposed to anything with religious overtones.

No matter your birthstone, whether it’s a diamond, a pearl or an amethyst – be sure to wear it with pride, flair and style. Here’s a bit about the September birthstone – beautifully intense Sapphire.

Magnificent sapphire gemstones are most prized for their beautiful hues of dark blue. However, this exquisite stone comes in a rainbow of other colors, including yellow, pink, orange and purple. The lovely blue color of the sapphire is associated with feelings of sympathy and harmony, friendship and loyalty. Sapphires are one of the “precious four,” a set of highly valuable gemstones that includes diamonds, rubies and emeralds.


No matter how far away their exotic origins, you can find all of your favorite gemstones much closer to home at the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City, located in the beautiful red carpet district of Studio City, California. The beautiful showroom offers its clients stunning diamond, colored stone, gold and platinum pieces designed to fit a range of fine jewelry budgets from large to small.

Voted “Favorite Jewelry Store” by the Los Angeles Daily News, the Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City carries one the largest selections of precious colored stones and EGL & GIA certified diamonds anywhere – often at more than 50-75% below retail. This highly-reviewed store also guarantees their stones to be “conflict-free,” a detail which is increasingly important to today’s consumers.
