Buying an Engagement Ring Online vs. In Store

Whether you are buying an engagement ring or have finally asked her and now have to search for wedding bands, the task of finding the perfect diamond can be overwhelming. It is no secret that e-commerce shopping has become the new way to buy everything from groceries to clothing, but when it comes to engagement rings and wedding rings, is it better to buy online or at a jewelry store? Although both options have their benefits, shopping at a traditional store such as Snow’s Jewelers, provides certain benefits that simply cannot be experienced when you shop online. Opportunity to Compare Although you may have a good idea of what diamond shape your future fiancé prefers or what size diamond you are looking for, but it can be extremely difficult to find the perfect engagement ring or wedding rings if you cannot compare several rings with your own eyes. The majority of online stores include photographs with the description, but a photograph cannot capture the true beauty of a diamond. When shopping at Snow’s Jewelers, you will have the opportunity to look at a variety of diamond rings that are within your budget, so you can determine which one is the perfect choice.

Before you begin searching online for the perfect diamond, it is important to familiarize yourself with what these things mean and the role they play in choosing the perfect diamond. Shopping at an independent jewelry store means you do not have to overwhelm yourself with the task of learning what it all...

Fun Facts You Never Knew About Pearls

Outside of diamonds, pearls are the most popular and timeless type of gemstone. Pearl jewelry has been a staple form of jewelry for women for centuries. They are often associated with wisdom and with water and have been seen as a symbol of power, class and sophistication. Pearls also have a vast array of myths associated with them. For example, many people believed that when an oyster would rise to the surface of the water at dawn, it would collect dew drops in its opened shell, which would later turn into a pearl.

Whether you love pearl jewelry or you thrive on a good trivia challenge, here are a few fun and interesting facts about pearls. How Pearls are Really Created From dew drops to sand, there have been several myths as to how a pearl is created, but the fact is, pearls are actually an organic material. They are formed by a living organism known as a mollusk, which creates a pearl when a tiny particle or seed is implanted in the shell. In fact, the pearl is the only gemstone to be extracted from living animals. A pearl can be created by any mollusk that has a shell, but pearls are typically created by mollusks with two shells. Depending on the type of mollusk and the water conditions, it can take anywhere from a couple of months to several years for a pearl to develop. And if you’ve ever wondered what the difference between saltwater and freshwater pearls is, it...
