So no need to worry.

 

Here are some recommendations that match personality traits with various styles of engagement rings:

TRADITIONAL & ELEGANT

Do you love the traditional simplicity of a solitaire engagement ring? A classic solitaire setting is timeless and showcases the center diamond without any distraction, A true focal point for your eyes. Solitaires, which are the rings that have only one center diamond, are the most popular style for engagement rings and always will be. The most traditional solitaire features a plain metal band. If wanting a touch more of sparkle, add a row of diamond accents on the band or consider peekaboo diamonds (which are diamonds that are not visible from the top). Three stone engagement rings are another traditional choice from to the traditional solitaire. Three stones represent the past, present, and future of you both <3

 

STYLISH & OUTGOING

If you have a partner that loves sparkle!, she might love a setting that holds her diamond higher, or perhaps one that features sparkling pavé-set diamonds on the band. Halo engagement settings are also very popular. Halo settings add a circle of diamonds all the way around the center diamond to add sparkle and make the center diamond appear larger.

OUTDOORSY & NATURE LOVER

Is your significant other a nature lover or someone who loves being outdoors? Ring settings with organic elements in their designs such as leaves, vines, and flowers may be her version of the perfect engagement ring. For an active outdoorsy women, consider a setting that holds the diamond lower to the hand. A bezel setting, or a thin metal band that hugs the diamond all the way around like a circle, is also great for keeping a diamond protected. Click the link to see more engagement rings of this style:

ROMANTIC & TIMELESS

Does your partner love vintage? Consider ring settings that have intricate milgrain details, filigree or scrollwork patterns. I would even recommend dainty bands. View our diamond engagement rings featured in our Antique & Vintage Collection. Or, if your partner loves unique one-of-a-kind engagement rings from the past, consider an authentic antique engagement ring.

MODERN & CONTEMPORARY

Does your beloved appreciate a modern, fashion-forward style?

How To Choose A Diamond

1529dce0-d410-4ddd-a13e-12fc07159978

It takes diamonds….. billions of years to form from basic molecules of carbon into the hardest substance on earth and one of the most popular and precious stones on the planet. With attributes diamond carries of strength, durability, and beauty, diamonds mimic the very qualities that draw us all to love, because it is a substance that contains the hardest blond structures in the world – making it the perfect stone to represent your bond as a symbol of your love for eachother

The 4 C’s

Cut

The cut of a diamond refers to the precision and quality of the actual cutting of the diamond, so it is best to use our trained diamond specialist who can show you the polish and symmetry grading of your diamond.

Clarity

A diamond’s clarity is determined by how many inclusions are within the diamond. Whether they can be spotted by the naked eye or only under a jeweler’s microscope determines how high the clarity grade is, the more inclusions a diamond has in it the lower its value. The Gemological Institute of America’s (GIA) grading scale, from best quality (and most valuable) to lowest quality (least expensive):

  • Flawless (FL)
  • Internally Flawless (IF)
  • Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS)
  • Very Slightly Included (VS)
  • Slightly Included (SI)
  • Included (I)

Color

Grading for the color of diamonds starts with the letter D, which is the best, all the way down to letter Z, Think of the alphabet when looking at diamonds but start with D instead of A. Diamonds are graded from Colorless to Near Colorless to slightly yellow or brown…all the way down the alphabet to Cloudy diamonds which will actually look slightly off-white, yellow, or even slightly brown. If you’d like to come by our store or give us a call, we can help you select the best diamond for the best price possible!

Carat

A carat is the unit used to measure a diamond’s weight. The bigger the carat, the larger the diamond, We recommend anywhere between a 0.75ct-1.50ct as the center stone, but honestly it all goes with your personal preference! We have every size and diamond shape there is, if you’re in the market for a diamond then please give us a call 352-377-8787, we have the best quality at the best price possible and will be happy to assist you in your search!

Conflict Free Diamonds

Conflict Free Diamonds

Conflict Free Jewelry

As a trusted member of the community and a producer and seller of jewelry, Govind and Sons Fine Jewelry takes its responsibility to carry only ethically sourced materials very seriously. We have strong principles we have followed since we first started buying jewelry and strive to ensure our integrity and commitment to excellence in quality and conflict free guarantee.

we strive to ensure all materials are 100% conflict free.

What Does Conflict Free Mean?

To be conflict free means a stone or metal must come from an operation in a region that is free of all violence.

To ensure the diamonds and other precious metals and stones used in our jewelry are 100% ethical and conflict free, we use the trusted Kimberly Process.

We Promise to Deliver you the Quality You Expect

 

22007906_1662404083792052_2212511495317831958_n

Purchasing a diamond from a conflict free region does not mean you will need to compromise on quality or size. Diamond quality from mines in Canada, Botswana or Namibia is extremely high and there are more then enough options that we can match to your desires and budget. We also work closely with our family who live at these sources personally to utilize recycled metals and stones in our jewelry to minimize the need for new mining operations that can contribute to the cost of conflict-zone operations.

Jewelry Care

Congratulations! You have own a beautiful piece of jewelry that will last for generations. Here are some tips and guidelines so that you can keep your jewelry perfect over time.

 

General Maintenance Info for your jewelry:

Jewelry is constantly exposed to wear and tear. For example, think of these scenarios: How many activities do you do using your hands every day? Or, consider a pendant swinging back and forth that could possibly come in contact with other objects or get pulled on. Metal expands and contracts depending on the earth’s elements and temperatures throughout the days , so how can you keep your jewelry in excellent shape? No need to worry! It’s easy!

The most important advice we can give to you is to consistently bring in your jewelry at least every six months for a free cleaning and inspection. Then, we can check and tighten any loose gems and give you a full report on your jewelry’s condition.

Do:

  • Bring in your jewelry for a free inspection and cleaning every 6 months.
  • Have your rings sized perfectly to you. (This will ensure it never falls off)
  • Place jewelry in the same place every time when you get home
  • Enjoy your beautiful jewelry!

Don’t:

  • Don’t wear during exercise, yard work, dish washing, or heavy lifting. Just as a precaution!
  • Don’t let jewelry rub against other metals or rough and hard surfaces.

12191296_1049545311744602_8183314170157246504_o

Insurance

We highly recommend having your jewelry insured, either through home insurance or a jewelry insurance company. Ask us for more info. We recommend Jewelers Mutual!

Jewelry Safety

To keep your jewelry in perfect condition, keep it from rubbing against other metals or any hard or rough surface. When you’re not wearing your jewelry, keep it in a jewelry box or special designated place.

Do not wear your jewelry when doing extreme workouts or sports, yard work, or other rough activities that could risk you losing or damaging it. Finally, remove your rings when you shower or put on lotion as the prevents your diamond or gemstone to get some of that on it, which will keep it from getting dull.

When traveling, keep your jewelry from tangling together. Many people purchase inexpensive travel wedding bands so they don’t have to worry about losing their expensive rings! We have lot’s if you’re interested!

 20900671_1615053168527144_2492564952622661795_o - Copy

Home Cleaning

You can clean most jewelry at home with warm water and a dab of liquid dish soap.

Basically all you gotta do is soak your piece in a bowl of this solution for a few minutes and then gently wash with a soft toothbrush and then towel dry. Make sure to keep your jewelry away from the faucet! Don’t wanna risk it falling down the drain.

Ultrasonic cleaning is a great way to clean your jewelry, but never have this done without an inspection first, we offer free professional jewelry cleanings in our store 🙂

 

Gemstones

Gems tend to loosen over time due to normal wear and tear when in jewelry settings. It is important to have your jewelry inspected at least every 6 months to make sure your gems are secure.

 

Pearls

Do not expose pearls to heat or chemicals, because these may alter the color of the pearl as well as loosen the glue holding it in the piece which is in most pearl jewelry nowadays.

Pearls are also very soft, so beware of rough surfaces.

 

Eternity Bands

Eternity bands need special care because the stones go all the way around the band. There is more increase of risk of losing a stone because there are so many from all angles, so be especially aware of risky walls or surfaces when placing your hand there and make sure to have your ring consistently inspected.

 

Metals

Platinum

Platinum is the most precious metal in fine jewelry and the strongest for holding gemstones. Platinum will last longer than any other metal, I have seen platinum vintage rings 100 years old and still in good shape!

White Gold

One thing to know with white gold jewelry care, white gold isn’t a natural color of the gold metal. White gold is yellow gold that has been plated with rhodium, so the white color will eventually wear down over time, but it is a easy fix, just take it to a jewelry store or us to get it re-rhodium plated whenever you start seeing yellow gold hints in your ring.  Many clients of ours re-plate their ring one a year.

 

 

 

The bottom line and most important thing to remember is to always enjoy your jewelry! Remember, stop by or mail your jewelry to us at least every six months so we can keep it beautiful for you, free of charge. Feel free to contact us if you ever have any questions.
