Emerald Cut or Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring - How Do You Choose? Auctions

Emerald Cut Diamonds

The ‘Emerald Cut’ was originally developed for cutting emeralds, not diamonds.

The Emerald Cut is a very bold and solid feeling cut. It can be absolutely stunning because of its long lines it tends to be less fiery than a round brilliant cut. It also tends to have broader, more dramatic flashes of light. The trim lines of emerald cut diamonds lend an elegant, sophisticated air to both the simplest and most elaborate ring settings.

The Emerald Cut is rectangular with cut corners. It is a step cut as opposed to a brilliant cut. A step cut diamond has sloping, four sided facets that are cut below the table and run parallel to the diamond’s girdle. There are fewer facets in a step cut diamond than in a brilliant cut diamond but they tend to have more facets than baguettes. The most preferred Emerald Cuts are those with the length-to-width ratio being 1.30-1.65:1.

When purchasing an emerald cut diamond, it is extremely important to pay attention to quality and to select the highest grade stone you can afford. Flaws and color weakness are more noticeable in Emerald Cut Diamonds than in other cuts. Because they don’t look as good as brilliant cuts, emerald cuts normally sell for less than a brilliant cut of the same quality. The emerald cut diamonds are not as “traditional” as round brilliant or as trendy as the princess cut, in which case people who prefer their jewelry to be quieter and more understated would prefer emerald cut.

The recommended proportions that should be checked for when purchasing the Emerald cut include, ‘G’ color, VS2 clarity, 58% to 69% depth range. This can be guaranteed when purchased from a certified Diamond merchant.

Princess Cut Diamonds

The Princess Cut is relatively new. It is a very attractive cut that gives out maximum brilliance from a square cut. It is effectively a square version of the round brilliant cut and is known as the square modified brilliant cut. The square or rectangular cut was invented about 30 years ago by Basil Watermeyer from Johannesburg. It was then known as the Barion cut. This was a style with extra and improved so as to obtain maximum brilliance from the diamond.

The square stone are better for certain design application such as eternity rings, as they can be set in one continuous line with no gaps between them such as would be with round stones.

The Princess Cut diamond is more forgiving of diamond flaws. Any inclusions are less visible and any slight yellowish color is less noticeable. Also because of the extra faceting, princess cuts are naturally more brilliant and sparkly than ordinary square diamonds.

What to watch out for is that the setting for your princess cut diamond protects the four pointed corners as these are the points prone to chipping. A recommendation for a good princess cut diamond is having a depth percentage range of 58-80% and table of 58-77%.

While not the traditional selection, princess cut engagement rings are becoming very popular either as a solitaire or with accent stones.

Is Your Body Seeking Simplicity? Quiz


Are there messages coming from your body and the way you are living in the right now that may be telling you that your life is not as simple as your body needs it to be, in order to maintain optimum health for all your cells.

Like the lights on your inner dashboard, there will certainly be indicators coming from your physical, mental, emotional or spiritual self, warning you that change is necessary.

Here is a test which will help you to recognize some of those warning signs. The author calls it the Sick Canary Test because the miners, in the old days, used to take a canary down the mine with them. If there were toxic fumes, the canaries would die, alerting the miners to evacuate immediately. Are you splitting off from your body and its needs, cycles, and rhythms? Take this test and see:

Score 2 points for each "yes" answer.

1. Do you watch TV because you are too tired to do anything else?

2. Do you get less sleep than you really need?

3. Do you skip meals because you are too busy to stop?

4. Do you feel overwhelmed by your tasks and obligations?

5. Do you ever need a stimulant, such as coffee, to get you through?

6. Do you ever curse your natural rhythms (your menstrual cycle, your “slumpy” time of day, your energy fluctuations?

7. Do you turn to fast food and instant meals because you are too busy to cook?

8. Do you dread mid-life, menopause, old age, baldness, turning fifty, drooping breasts?

9. Do you drive everywhere because there isn’t time to walk or catch a bus?

10. Do you tend to skimp on exercise or meditation whenever something urgent needs doing?

11. Do you find yourself saying “Hurry Up!” to your partner, your kids, your friends, your dog?

12. Do you feel a pressure in your chest or gut at traffic lights, in queues, waiting for things to download on your computer?

13. Do you go for hours without laughing?

14. – or without singing?

15. – or without stretching?

16. Do you postpone going to the toilet because you are busy with something else?

17. Do you forget to drink plenty of plain, filtered water as well as other drinks?

18. Do you suffer from tension headaches?

19. Do you go for days without cuddling another human or other live creature?

20. Do you spend more than two thirds of your waking hours indoors?

0-10 = you’re doing well
11-20 = check your priorities;
20-30 = you may be a sick canary;
30+ = it’s time to call the vet!

Millions of people in our industrialized, Western culture would score somewhere between twenty and forty on this test. So if you, too, scored high, you are probably closer to our culture’s “normal” than someone living a really simple, healthy life.

If your score was high, you might consider starting a meditation, yoga, or stress management program. Or just do the opposite of everything you answered "yes" to!

    Will Travel For Food


    I recently blogged about culinary tours (from wine-tasting to beer-tasting to gelato tours in Italy and other culinary delights). And after a recent two-week boat trip where one of the biggest daily agenda items was, "What shall we eat next?" it got me thinking. How many people travel for food?

    Culinary tours and cooking classes seem to be sprouting up everywhere. When I travel, food is one of the first things that comes to mind. While boating recently, my skipper and chef caught nine Dungeness crabs for us to feast on. We got creative with fresh crab dipped in butter, crab cakes, melts, salads. You name the recipe, that crustacean was on the menu.

    When traveling to a new place, I always ask friends who have been there: "Where's the good food?" Since we all need food for sustenance, mealtimes seem to bind us together when traveling. It becomes an activity all its own. One of the great pleasures of the trip.

    One of my favorite meals of all time was an insalata caprese in Piazza Navona in Rome. I was with my dad. At the time, I'd never had more flavorful tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. The food simply tasted better in Italy. The sweet memory of the meal probably had more to do with the company, the intoxicating energy in the piazza, and its historical buildings surrounding us than the ingredients. But who can tell? No matter. The memory is still etched in my brain.

    Do you travel for food?

    About the Author - Jocelyn Milici

    Jocelyn blogs about group travel on TripHub's Group Trip Advisor.
    Travel has been in my life since I was old enough to book my own ticket (and, of course, on family reunions and trips). My first trip abroad (other than to Canada) was across the border to Tijuana, Mexico on spring break my senior year of college. Does that count? Probably not.

    Real travel began for me when I journeyed alone to South and Centra America, deciding never again to travel solo - it was lonely, isolating, not nearly as much fun as being with travel companions, friends, or family.

    After 8+ years in the online travel industry, I'm blogging about group travel with tips, advice, resources, ponderings, and more for family travel, girls getaways, weddings - all types of group travel. The blog is connected to TripHub, a group travel planning site with free tools for organizing small to medium-sized group trips.

    Have a look! Happy travels,

      Hello and thanks for the opportunity to read and post on your blog.

      I’ve just posted an article related to travel tips for seniors on my blog and I thought maybe you’d be interested in reading it. Here is short preview of some of the areas I covered:

      - Prefer a backpack on wheels instead of a suitcase, you could pull it behind you when your back hurts or you are exhausted.
      - Consider checking your bag in with the airlines, because it would become an unnecessary burden to be dragged all over the airport or the city if you are going to have a short visit.
      - You could stay outside the city, in a hostel maybe, because it is cheaper, less crowded and the air is much fresher, but you have to walk or use the transport more, to get in the city or to the station.
      - Most museums, some concert halls, railways, airlines, bus lines, ferry and shipping lines have a discount policy for seniors.
      - Electronic devices are useful but sometimes they can give you a lot of headaches. You could help yourself with a micro-tape recorder to record your notes. It would be easier than to write and you would put them down on paper later, to share your notes with your family.
      - If you bring a camera with you to keep the beautiful images alive along the time then make sure you know how to handle it or you might fail to record them not only on that camera but also in your eyes.

      For more resources on travelling to Europe you are welcome to visit my blog, where you can also get acces to some excellent maps of Rome and maps of Berlin, together with information on hotels and restaurants.

      Best regards,

      Michael R.

    Our Obsession With Perfection (Jarden Direct)

    When I was younger, one of my biggest dissapointment was that I was never ever going to be one of those skinny asian girls. As I grew older, I realized that I have to be happy with what the Good Lord above has given me. Muscles, Tone and definition. And heck, I was voted best legs in high school by my peers. Still, I'm just being human, given the chance, I still would love to be one of those skinny asian girls. Size 0? Anyone?

    Today, we have Nicole Ritchie. Paris Hilton. Victoria Beckham. They are so skinny. They are even skinnier than most asian girls. They have shoulder blades smaller than my wrist (And I have tiny ones since I am a concert pianist). They are a size of their own. No wonder couture designers are making their mark this world dressing these celebrities.

    And again, ask me who I have pinned up on my refrigerator. Angelina Jolie, of course.

    Not the Angelina Jolie, Tomb Raider. Angelina had to gain weight and muscle mass to do this movie. But the Angeline Jolie, Mr and Mrs. Smith. The skinny supermodel.

    Okay, so maybe I'll never be that size. I dont think I even want to be that size. But given if technology could put me in a capsule and I come out as size 0, please sign me up. Can I pay more to get ahead of the line?

    A recent TV Show Extreme Celebrities explored how and why women in the public eye have become so slim. And what their lasting legacies will be to the general public. It talked about how you can get really sick - hair loss, osteoporosis, heart disease.

    Well, we have to pay for it somehow.

    Nothing in this world is for free.

    And for those skinny capsule makers, book mark me. I will pay a lot of money. I just dont want to kill myself getting there.

    Nearly 20% of the Population Aspires to Have Cosmetic Surgery in the Future, Do You?

    American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Announces 2006 Consumer Perception Survey Results

    The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) is announcing the results of its 2006 Consumer Perception Survey. The survey was conducted on behalf of the Academy to gauge current consumer perceptions as it relates to celebrity "must-have" features, cosmetic procedures and consumer misconceptions on practitioners' education, qualifications and training.

    The survey showed that cosmetic surgery is something that only 6% of the adult population has done, but that almost 20% of the population aspires to do at some point in their lifetime. The survey also provides insights about the perceptions and myths surrounding cosmetic surgery. For example, the results show that only about half of consumers are aware of the difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon -- which emphasizes the need for patient education surrounding cosmetic surgery.

    Additional highlights of the results report include:

    An overwhelming five out of six consumers believe that personal appearance is key to professional success.

    When asked how open they would be about a cosmetic surgery procedure, 33% of consumers said they would tell only those who asked, while 18% said they would tell only close friends and family.

    The two most wanted celebrity features, according to the survey, are Jennifer Aniston's eyes for women (46%) and Nick Lachey's abs for men (51%).

    If there was disposable income to be had, 46% of consumers say they would forego an expensive vacation or luxury car to pay for cosmetic surgery.

    About 12% of the men surveyed believe they will have cosmetic surgery at some point in the future.

    Only 18% of consumers cited fear of pain as a reason for foregoing cosmetic surgery. Instead, the cost is what would discourage 54% of those surveyed from having a procedure.

    About 20% of consumers are unclear on what a cosmetic surgeon is.

    The AACS Consumer Perception Survey was conducted by Synovate, Inc., and included a total of 1,510 representative interviews. Additional survey methodology and statistics can be obtained by contacting the Academy.

    The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery is a professional medical society whose members are dedicated to patient safety and physician education in cosmetic surgery. Members of the AACS are dermatologic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons, ocular plastic surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons or other surgical backgrounds -- all of whom specialize in cosmetic surgery. AACS is an organization that represents all cosmetic surgeons in the American Medical Association through its seat in the AMA House of Delegates.

    Teaching Kids To Read For Dummies

    You're thinking of teaching a child to read. What a great idea! Now all you need is exactly the right blueprint. This easy-to-follow book is written with two people in mind; you, and the child you're thinking of teaching. Mother and children’s reading specialist Tracey Wood gives you all the down-to-earth, honest information you need to give a child a happy, solid start with reading.

    Teaching Kids to Read for Dummies is for parents of young children who want to give their kids a head start by teaching them to read before they enter school or to supplement their children's school instruction, as well as teachers and caregivers of young children. Filled with hands-on activities that progress a child from sounds to words to sentences to books, this friendly guide shows you how to:

    Prepare a child to read, Sharpen his listening skills, Correct her errors graciously, Choose the right books, Have kids read out loud, Find help if you need it

    Whether the child you want to teach is two or twelve; fast paced or steady; an absolute beginner or someone who’s begun but could use a little help, this empathetic book shows you how to adapt the simple, fun activities to your child’s individual needs. You'll see how to make activities age appropriate, how to add more challenge or support, and how to make gender allowances if that’s relevant.

    Plus, you'll discover how to:
    • Lay the foundation for good reading skills
    • Tell the difference between a reading delay and a reading problem
    • Help your child build words from letters and sounds, advance to short and long vowel words, and conquer syllables and silent letters
    • Select entertaining workbooks, recycle them, and make up your own reading activities
    • Get your child ready for sentences
    • Keep your child reading - with others or on his own
    • Complete with lists of word families, phonics rules, and reading resources, Teaching Kids to Read For Dummies will help you make learning fun for your child as he or she develops this critical skill!
