We have a LOT of fun with our sponsor Joseph Jewelry. Did you catch Ariel's latest sparkly romp in their Seattle storefront on our Instagram Stories?
Clearly, Ariel was shocked and delighted by their HUGE AF gemstone rings, so I thought I'd share some of them with you for your perusing pleasure.
Beyond gawking at the stupendousness of these bad boys, we can also talk about ways to make gemstones or make a diamond look bigger. (I mean, we already covered how to make a diamond look smaller.) Or perhaps you've inherited a massive diamond or gemstone from your partner or your family, and you're wondering how to have it re-set. Joseph Jewelry DEFINITELY has some inspiration for you. They can make virtually anything you can dream up.
SO, let's talk about how to go big today…
The easiest way to make a diamond look bigger is to use a halo setting — the one where small diamonds encircle the center stone. (Extra big points if the halo setting stones match the center stone.) See how the 3.09 carat oval pink sapphire goes from big to WHOA Big with the matching halo of pink sapphires.
Here's a classic diamond halo setting. It works with all shapes and sizes.
Okay, here's the thing about our sponsor Gemvara Jewelry: it doesn't matter if you're in the market for wedding rings or not -- their website... Read more
Or you can go really wild with your halo and have Joseph Jewelry custom make it look more like a giant bird's nest.
Add extra prongs
I am so in to six prong settings. The more prongs you have, the bigger the stone will seem.
Three stone rings
You're looking at a 2.79 emerald with two side stones that total 1.39 carats. That's a lot of emerald cut bling for your ring.
Lab grown diamonds and gemstones
Lab grown diamonds and gemstones are a great way to get more carat for less money. And Joseph Jewelry can totally hook you up with lab grown gemstones in any shape, size, AND color. Check it out.
Design your own ring
This is not only one of the biggest rings Joseph Jewelry has ever made, it's also one of the coolest and most intricate. It's a perfect example of how they can literally make anything you want (I mean, within reason).
I know from real life experience that you can bring Joseph Jewelry your ideas, or some inspiration pictures, and they can create photo edits and sketches of what you have in mind. Then, once you're satisfied, your dream ring becomes a reality… a beautiful reality.
Clearly the folks at Joseph Jewelry love getting creative and making super offbeat and totally original rings. So if you have big dreams of even bigger rings, or even if you have small #ringgoals, you should reach out to Joseph Jewelry to create anything (anyring?) you want!
