The Perfect Symbol of Love and Commitment

by Bonaci Fine Jewelers
The Perfect Symbol of Love and Commitment Little girls grow up dreaming about their wedding day. It is the one day in a woman's life when everything is about her. By the time the big day arrives, she has planned the perfect wedding, including flowers in her favorite colors, a beautiful gown and the perfect ring. The engagement ring is a bride's pride and joy. It is representative of a couple's love, devotion and fidelity and a symbol of their commitment and promise to marry.

Those of us at Bonaci Fine Jewelers are ready to help you make the right choice in an engagement ring. We have been in business since 1962 and can help you navigate the complex world of settings, stones and precious metals.

Engagement rings have been around for hundreds of years. It is believed that the Italians began the tradition, followed by the Romans. Early Victorians exchanged 'regards rings' set with birthstones. Royalty wore rings made of gold or silver while those in the lower classes wore fewer precious metals. As time wore on, a single diamond became the symbol of an engagement.

The Perfect Symbol of Love and Commitment Today, brides have many options from which to choose. Pink, red and black diamonds are growing in popularity as are unique shapes such as triangles, double triangles and cube-shaped stones. When selecting a ring, it is important to work with a quality jeweler who can help guide you through the difference choices available.

However, color and shape are just two of the choices a couple has to consider. Rings today can even mimic nature like a single or double butterfly setting or flower rings which are traditionally formed in the shape of a daisy. Stones in a circular form are designed to represent eternity with no beginning or end. A plain band can be engraved or come in an unusual metal such as rose gold.

Unusual stones are an option as well. Onyx, pearls, emeralds, opals or blue sapphires are also popular choices. Rings with three stones are said to represent the past, the present and the future. These are just a few of the options available at Warwick Jewelers. Remember, too, that some men also wear engagement rings. In Norway, for example, it is customary for both men and women to wear an engagement ring.

The Perfect Symbol of Love and Commitment Our engagement season begins in November, giving future brides and grooms the time needed to choose the right ring for Christmas gift giving or for a Valentine's Day surprise. No matter what type ring has caught your eye, Bonaci Fine Jewelers is ready to help you. We will ensure that you are choosing the right ring for you.

The Rich, Red Ruby is July's Fiery Birthstone

by Bonaci Fine Jewelers
The Rich, Red Ruby is Julys Fiery Birthstone July2017-Ruby1-62The ruby's name comes from the Latin word “ruber”, which means red. This name is apt considering the ruby's gorgeous primary hue of deep and rich reds. Along with the gem's primary hue, secondary hues such as orange, pink, and purple can occur. Purple is the best secondary hue to occur because it intensifies the ruby's primary red hue, therefore increasing the gem's value.

The rich red color of rubies has always been associated with fire, and therefore, power. The ruby was believed to be the favorite gem of the Ancient Egyptian goddess of war, and ruby rings were worn by Egyptian warriors. The elite of in Victorian England and America proudly donned ruby necklaces and ruby earrings in an effort to display their perceived importance. Even the birthstone poem talks of the ruby's power, stating that those who wear ruby jewelry are “exempt and free/From love's doubts and anxiety”.

While rubies have long been associated with power, they look less than powerful when they are first mined. Rubies naturally occur with a number of flaws and treatments for these flaws have been developed over the years. For blemishes which may occur in the ruby, the gem is heated, which then removes the blemishes. Heating also intensifies visibility of the stone's asterism, or star-like shapes which can be seen within the stone when the stone is passed through a single light source. This treatment also intensifies the ruby's primary red hue. Along with blemishes, fissures may also be present. To treat these, the stone is again heated and melted glass is inserted into the fissures. These treatments increase the ruby's value and are used on almost every ruby in preparation to be sold.
