New Year's Day is a time when we look forward to the future by giving a New Year’s Resolution. A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. 

Every year religiously I make this resolution (even though I know I will break it)   

" I WILL NOT GAIN ANY MORE WEIGHT ……."  

This year I modified my resolution .... because I realized Losing weight is such a hard goal , so I figured why not make it easier. First maintain weight, then figure out a way to lose it   

WHAT IS UR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION ???

Confused about White Gold !!!

December 15, 2014

Are you also confused about White Gold same as what i was 

What is white gold ... is it real gold....How is it different from yellow gold ....is their a difference in pricing for them ....etc etc

Below r a few facts to clear the doubts  

White gold has the same properties as yellow gold, but it has been mixed with different metals to give it a white color. Instead of the copper and silver used in yellow gold, white gold contains such metals as nickel, zinc, or even platinum.

However, white gold should not be confused with platinum, which is much rarer than gold and hence more valuable. The karat weight system used in white gold is the same as that used in yellow gold. 18K yellow gold and 18K white gold contain the same proportion of gold; only the remaining 25% of the alloy is different.

Sometimes, white gold is plated with an even whiter metal, such as rhodium (a very rare member of the platinum family), to enhance its appearance. White gold was developed to give a different look to jewelry. The white color is an excellent setting for very white diamonds, and when used side by side with yellow gold, it creates a striking effect. Jewelry using both white and yellow gold is called "two-tone."  

With a much clearer approach lets c some more collection of White Gold on

STORY of Kazanjian RED DIAMOND

November 11, 2014

This stone belongs to an extremely small – and select - group of diamonds. It is one of only three red diamonds known to exist in the world today weighing in at 5 carats or more

   

The Kazanjian Red is a 5.05 ct. short emerald cut, originally discovered in the 1920s in Litchenburg, South Africa . The rough weighed 35 cts. At the time, a diamond dealer paid 280 British pounds (eight pounds per carat) for it, and shipped the rock to Amsterdam to be cut and polished by the Goudiv brothers. the stone had a wild ride for years . Many mistook the stone for a ruby because of its blood-red color 
It was this challenge the Goudvis Brothers faced when they tried sending the red stone to New York to be sold. The reaction to this magnificent red diamond was at best indifferent and it was recalled to Amsterdam. Later, when Tiffany & Co. in New York expressed an interest the stone was sent out again. An offer of $100,000 
 was made but the brothers wanted $150,000 and they recalled the stone once again.

    

During World War II   , the Nazis took all the valuables from the country , including Goudvis Brothers’ jewels were confiscated  . The red diamond - along with countless other gems – was sent to the Nazi stronghold at Berchtesgaden, Germany to be stored with other seized war booty. It would remain there for the duration of the war, awaiting liberation by Allied forces. With the conclusion of the conflict, the Goudvis Brothers’ red diamond was returned to them 

   

Unfortunately, the war left Goudvis Brothers’ estate was in bad financial straits . To pay off its debts, the estate sold the red diamond   to broker George Prins. Prins then in turn sold it to Sir Ernest Oppenheimer. From Oppenheimer it went to the Royal Asscher Diamond Company, Ltd. They sold it to a private collector in 1970, reportedly in New York.Since then the stone went MIA   ( missing in action ) for nearly 37 years …and finally purchased by Los Angeles-based Kazanjians Bros. , diamond jewellers. They renamed it the “Kazanjian Red Diamond,” and is on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City 

Wow, another incredible adventure of Rare Diamond.

Topaz Jewellery This November

November 04, 2014

I present , the esteemed and historical topaz.

Most authorities agree that the name topaz comes from Topazios, the old Greek name for a small island in the Red Sea, now called Zabargad. (The island never produced topaz, but it was once a source of peridot, which was confused with topaz before the development of modern mineralogy.) Some scholars trace the origin back to Sanskrit (an ancient language of India) and the word topas or tapaz, meaning “fire.”
 
The ancient Greeks believed that topaz gave them strength. In Europe during the Renaissance (the period from the 1300s to the 1600s) people thought that topaz could break magic spells and dispel anger. For centuries, many people in India have believed that topaz worn above the heart assures long life, beauty, and intelligence.

 
The name for imperial topaz originated in nineteenth-century Russia. At the time, the Ural Mountains were topaz’s leading source, and the pink gemstone mined there was named to honor the Russian czar. Ownership of the gem was restricted to the royal family.

One of the main reasons that Topaz has gained so much attention over the years is due to the mystical properties that it has to offer. The gemstone’s healing properties especially have gained it a lot of popularity. It is believed to ward off colds, enhance the breathing process, and help those with insomnia sleep better at night. The Bushmen of Africa, who are well recognized for their ability to heal, have been known to use Topaz.

There are many other mystical properties that Topaz is believed to offer aside from healing powers. It is also believed to get rid of mood swings, relax the mind, and help one think more realistically about things. As previously mentioned, Topaz is also believed to provide the mind with wisdom and knowledge. Since ancient times, the gemstone was also thought to work as a censor for poison. When it is near food or drink that has been poisoned, Topaz is known to change colors.

The stone given in celebration of the 4th and 19th anniversaries of marriage. Topaz is a symbol of love and affection, and has been said to be an aid to ones sweetness and disposition.

Yohooo topaz calling ……
