About Men's Jewellery Designers
Nowadays, men are becoming as enamored with jewellery. Jewellery designers have well woken up to the fact and are now offering exclusive and extensive men's range of jewellery. This jewellery is ranging right from diamond-studded watches to chains, bracelets and pendants.
This trend is further accentuated by the portrayal of men supporting flashy pieces of jewellery in cinema. Accessories as they are with cars and gizmos. In the past the passion for jewellery rested with women alone. From the mafia kings carrying extravagant neckpieces, to the young lover wearing a kinky bracelet gifted by his fiancÚ, men across all channels are being quick enough to adopt the trend. In this section, we take a look on the latest developments in this trend along with the major newsmakers in this aspect.
A diamond is a form of carbon
A diamond is a form of carbon that was created deep within the core of the earth more than 3 billion years ago and brought to the surface by volcanic eruption. In diamond, each carbon atom is bonded to four other carbon atoms in a tetrahedral structure, like a pyramid. Each link or bond is the same length, and the tetrahedral formation is therefore completely regular.
Theoretically a perfect diamond crystal could be composed of one giant molecule of carbon. After the magma cooled, it solidified into kimberlite, where the precious rough diamond is still found today. It is the strength and regularity of this bonding which makes diamond very hard, non-volatile and resistant to chemical attack.
Diamond Jewellery and diamond shapes
Study the variety of diamond shapes online to see which one you like most. Make sure you understand the difference between karats and carats before shopping for diamonds. Cubic zirconium looks like a real diamond, but is not. A karat measures the purity of gold. 24k is the purest gold. A carat measures fine gemstones and the weight of diamonds. Each has its own unique brilliance.
Larger diamonds, such as those on diamond engagement rings, will usually carry a greater weight in carats than smaller stones, such as those found in diamond tennis bracelets. Look for diamond fine jewelry in which the diamond itself has a carat weight. Diamonds may be round brilliant, oval, tiffany, marquise, pear-shaped, heart-shaped, cushion cut , emerald cut, trilliant, radiant, or princess cut. Make sure the diamond is not cubic zirconium.
