1. It is not necessary. Really.

2. If you're going to do it, please don't be cheap and do it only because you love her. Not as a way to get favours.

3. Don't buy created gemstones. Pearls are a no-no.

4. 18 carat gold is the minimum standard, nothing lesser

5. Do not allow the sales people at the counter to pressure you or embarrass you into buying something. You do not need to pretend that you're wealthy. Remember, they are just glorified checkout chicks and earn less than you. Yes you can ask them about price (know your gold price/gram before you shop) however don't forget details such as workmanship, setting, suitability for the person you are buying it for.

6. Classic, white gold and diamonds, you can't go wrong.

7. Check out some websites like Harry Winston, Bvlgari, Boucheron, Tiffany's (not great in my book) for ideas and designs before you hit the shops just so you know what's in style.

I have some experience as an amateur jeweller. It's actually quite fun. The biggest problem is having a place to set up facilities... oh and the cost of the raw materials. Shelling out $90-200 just for the silver (I don't even work with gold... hell no... acquiring workable gold today at these prices?) to get started on a slightly larger project is rough.

I've made pendants, cast rings, forged rings, bracelets, and experimented with setting stones. I always admire a professionals' work when I see those ultra tiny diamonds that are used for decoration in jewellery... knowing how hard it is just to set a large stone with a bevel I can't even begin to imagine setting those tiny ones with no bevel at all. At least the big gaudy diamonds have those easy to use (and make) crown settings that are popular nowadays.

My favorite metal to work with is silver obviously. But if you just need practice copper is a good alternative. Just hope that nobody that's allergic to it touches your stuff... or else they'll get pissed at you for turning them green :(

I bought my sister a silver necklace with onyx rounds a while back that I found at a clearance price from a jeweller for $70. It's a really nice piece. She's been bugging me to make her some chandelier earrings to go with it though (I've searched everywhere for a matching set; no go) I can't seem to get the hang of making the ultra-small chain links to set up the onyx placements.

One of these days I'll have the skill to do it.

1. It is not necessary. Really. For decent women, this is true. For shallow slags, it is expected and demanded.


2. If you're going to do it, please don't be cheap and do it only because you love her. Not as a way to get favours.
One of my wife's co-workers asked her why I never send her flowers to work. She said "because he isn't shallow. He brings me coffee almost daily and lunch often, all of which cost more then flowers and come more often then flowers once every six months."


3. Don't buy created gemstones. Pearls are a no-no. I disagree. One of my wife's favorite pieces of jewelry I purchased was a set of Black Pearls and Titanium. I bought a choker and bracelet and a set of earrings.
They were definitely unique and stand out. She likes them, they look great on her and she usually is complimented on them.


4. 18 carat gold is the minimum standard, nothing lesser She only wears silver, white gold, titanium and platinum.
Make sure you know her coloring and preference before purchasing.
The missus does not wear yellow gold. She will wear pink gold as an accent with a white metal, but not pure yellow gold.


5. Do not allow the sales people at the counter to pressure you or embarrass you into buying something. You do not need to pretend that you're wealthy. Remember, they are just glorified checkout chicks and earn less than you. Yes you can ask them about price (know your gold price/gram before you shop) however don't forget details such as workmanship, setting, suitability for the person you are buying it for. Better suggestion, bring in or take a photo of a couple of pieces she likes and try to get something in a similar vein.


6. Classic, white gold and diamonds, you can't go wrong. Pretty much.


7. Check out some websites like Harry Winston, Bvlgari, Boucheron, Tiffany's (not great in my book) for ideas and designs before you hit the shops just so you know what's in style. No.
You just suggested they go with a timless classic piece, then suggest they go for "what's in style"?
Fuck why don't you suggest they buy their gals 15 Swatches with the bitchin' rubbery face guards and 10 lbs of bangle bracelets?

This is unrealistic for most people's budgets. Really. Be realistic.
Buy one nice piece but keep the receipt and be understanding if she wants to take it back for something that is more her style.

In the States, the default metal is yellow gold as opposed to the "White Metals" (raczmbanplz). Walk into any jewelry store near or on Valentine's Day or Christmas and invariably you are to find an ocean of clueless men, last minute shopping for jewelry for their woman (romofobebanplz) needless to say they do a brisk business of 24K yellow gold diamond solitaires that day.

Its a shame they dont put in more effort. I mean, plenty of women can wear it, and like it, but IMO silver metals are so much nicer and wearable.

But hey, my jewelery collection is fairly... narrow. So you probably shouldn't listen to me.

Does the engagement ring count as stuff? Does writing about it on the internet years latter indicate that somehow I've completely dealt with it?

But the kicker is that she wont shop with me, I have to buy it for her and surprise her to indicate that I truly understand her and her tastes.

No, it shows that you care and are trying to do the right thing.

Of course she won't.

Of course you do, that way you prove you notice and pay attention, dumbass.
Make a fucking list. Everyday write down what she wears. The color metal, the stone. Write down if she is wearing earrings, if so how many and what kind.
Necklace? One or two or three......pendant or no-pendant, chain only.
Watch? Bracelet? What kind.
Rings? How many and what kind....stone/color/size.

Then you have an idea about what she likes on a daily basis and you can make your selection.
"That way, your comment can be: I notice you really like *this kind of jewelry* and wear it often and it really looks nice on you...shows off you slender neck/beautifully manicured hands/whathaveyou and thought this would accent that as well."

And make sure you call out one for me.

Snake and Syberia - I only said 'no pearls' because I knew people like Kein and Cullion would have to make a joke. That being said, they better be set well (of course I don't wear pearls because they are sourced from a living creature).

Snake - by referring people to those sites I am hoping they have good taste and can differentiate between heavy/"look at me I'm a bling whore" and classic tasteful pieces.

Point 1 always stands :)

A lot of jewellery I have is inherited or were given as gifts so I can't exactly question their source. However to be on the safe side, some years ago, I told these people that 1) I don't need jewellery 2) that I want my jewellery to be ethically sourced and not animal sourced if at all 3) I can buy my own.

22nd July 09, 10:12 PM
Aside from pearls and leather... there are no animal products used in Jewelry making.

A jeweller will use:
* various steel and carbide jeweller's saws with wooden handles and frames of steel.
* various gems and jewels mined from the earth.
* various metals mined from the earth.
* chemicals to produce flux and solder-metal: borax, ethyl alcohol, boric acid.


Unless you find issue with wood being used (which destroys habitats), mineral mining which causes the most toxic environment hazards known to man, the byproducts of soldering/melting/smelting metals put out in the atmosphere, or the use of wax to produce molds from (virtually every form of casting uses wax and every professional piece of jewelry will have at least 1 cast part in it) due to questionable bee content then you should be good to go with virtually all jewelry.

So your wife likes funky jewelry?

Antique Store/Antique Mall and find something with a unique history.....like it was worn by a woman who fought for women's suffrage? Or was brought over by Russian immigrants?

Something like this is kinda cool:

Shipwreck jewelry brought up from the ocean floor.

Or this, a ring from an antique Greek coin:
http://www.tias.com/cgi-bin/google.fcgi/itemKey=3923246273


Something handmade by an artisian? Like Bullshido's Hedgehogey hand makes "steampunk" jewelry. Hit him up on PM and ask him about his jewelry.

Go to the local college and see if there are any lapidary classes and maybe take a class and make it yourself or see if they sell stuff?

Whatever, stress that it wasn't just "bought off the rack" that you notice she has her own unique style and flair and you wanted something that nobody else had....that would reflect her individuality and personality.

Now, on jewellery. If you have an off-the-shelf wife, then off-the-shelf bling is fine. Hell, it worked with the personalised iPod you got her, right? And the custom Nike + runners. Go straight to that mall, and flirtatiously ask the twenty-something salesgirl for 'something classy'.

If your wife is a little more of a...how to put it...more of a person, then you might have to shop second-hand, or have something made. My wife and I actually made each other rings.

no nothing wrong with metalcraft, we got castles full of awesome metalcraft over here.
it's more like the mushy stuff when you go making your own ring, fooling yourself that somehow it will make it different.

10 years down the road the sexlife will suck, it will be boring and despite and intimicy of having someone who knows you for years you cant keep from wondering how it would have been with another woman.

Jewellery, and precious metals and gems, are the biggest scams known to mankind.

Your average diamond is ridiculously inflated in price through the actions of the cartels and probably has some mine worker blood on it. I can appreciate that some pieces have fine workmanship but beyond that most jewellery is just a particularly silly way to demonstrate how much money you have, or want people to think you have.

DAYoung
25th July 09, 05:35 AM
Some gems or jewellery works are overpriced. This doesn't mean THE point of jewellery is displaying wealth, and more than it's the point of art.

We can distinguish between sentimental or aesthetic value on one hand, and economic on the other.

You might well agree with this, and perhaps you're rightly lamenting the market. I agree.

25th July 09, 06:02 AM
That said there's jewelry for purposes beyond "I'm a rich fucker". There's "Look at my tits" jewelry too, ya know.

I bought my last girlfriend some random jewelry. Shanghainese pearl necklace [with complimentary loose pearl, random]; no doubt artificial but a pretty damn big pearl on it. Also a diamond ring, gold band a few small stones. It was small [I work for a living] but nice.

No wonder she left me.

One of the most hilariously ironic moments in advertising - some years back you may remember a cheapo jewellery chain used Janis Joplin's Mercedes Benz with the lyrics slightly altered to name their own stores in the 'buy me a sweet diamond ring' bit.

In fact I think Mercedes Benz used the lyrics themselves. Just as well she's dead the poor girl.

Your desire for kama has led you unto samsara. Your primordial ignorance has deluded your atman into investing itself totally in maya, and you shall never in your current state know the true Brahman. I recommend a steady course of vedic understanding, in which you will gain only fleeting grasps of the true brahman reality, after which you shall eventually through meditative experience and deep introspection realise that indeed, neti neti, and that your atman is brahman. Once you can discern the falsehood of maya from brahman your rebirth is assuredly halted.

simple jewelry without that many sparkles and glitters will add way more to a woman then this shiny carnavale stuff.

one time i was drinking with a russian ganster at a poolparty in a 5 star hotel.
awesome guy, he says: my name is ....(i forgot actually) and this is Y, my wife, and this is X my girlfriend.

they were sitting next to eachother!
coolest thing i ever saw.

point is, he had no taste, bright coloured blouse,hairy chest, rolex, big golden chain, his women totally hung with over the top jewelry.

trust me it didnt make em look any more prettier or even less ugly.

^this.

perfect example of lack of taste.
the gem itself is beautiful enough, it should be supported by a simple golden frame, so it would bring out the stone even better, istead the idiot who made this thought it would be tastefull to also add an over the top frame to accompany perfection, thus ruining the jewel.

If your ring falls off, it's the wrong size. To be fair I don't wear it everyday since it's been semi-replaced with a platinum every day band. (had the engagement/wedding rings soldered together at the base because they were sliding enough to wear part of one setting away) And if your earrings aren't on securely... um.. you can get those plastic things for hooks and well, posts gotta have secure backs, don't they? I don't allow strangers to kiss my hands or earlobes!

Well, I wouldn't wear women's jewelry, but I would wear his cufflinks. Personally, I find jewelry that's nothing but big rocks pretty soulless. One thing I've always appreciated about his jewelry is its use of color and form as well as just carats.

And sorry FFF, but if you're comparing Schepps to a Yugo then no, you don't know jewelry.

sorry mojo....let me start again. I'm starting to sound like everyone else on this thread. Glad you have your own taste and enjoy the varied ways in which jewellery can be created.

I'll have a look at more of Schepps' designs :)

Eh, and for my part, I'll admit that his work can be a bit out there and may not be for everyone. I'm just personally fond of organic forms and jewelry that is unconventional.

A couple of years back there was an exhibition of his (and others') work a the American Craft Museum in NYC. Some really beautiful pieces. They also had a really stunning example of a VC&A invisible setting (wish I could find a pic)- looked like the piece was covered with a layer of solid ruby.

I don't know jewlery and I can tell you those things def don't make me want to find out what I'm missing.

Expensive ≠ Tasteful.

This is tasteful.

They're cool- I like the dragonfly design, but personally I'd prefer something with a bit more color to it. Diamonds are great for sparkle, and a big one is certainly impressive, but colored stones to me have personality.

Yes, expensive != tasteful, but then again, tasteful != exceptional.

Been searching all over the stupid web for better Schepps designs, but largely all I'm finding is the newer Trianon stuff which is a bit gaudy. Schepps the man is still probably my favorite designer, but I'm really only seeing his stuff in my books.

I have always been a fan of minimalist jewelry, such as Paloma Picasso's work.

Aha- yeah, I can see where our disagreement stems from. My friend Lily (different Lily) used to design stuff like that (though with a more industrial feel to it). Was never my thing aesthetically but it looked good on her.

Well, you know, if I'm wearing the cufflinks and someone says "hey- you've got Seaman on your sleeve" at least I've got a good excuse.
