Take good care of your jewellery!
Gold and silver are both malleable metals that require careful treatment. Always remember to take off your jewellery before you take a shower, do the dishes, go to bed, play sports or are in similar situations where your jewellery may risk damage. Keep your jewellery in a suitable place such as a jewellery case. With time, your jewellery may suffer from wear and tear in vulnerable areas. We recommend that you submit your jewellery to a professional for examination about once a year.
The carat indicates the amount of gold in the material the ring is made of. One carat indicates that the gold weight is 1/24 of the weight of the alloy. Thus, in 18 carat jewellery, the amount of pure gold is 18/24 (75 %).
Diamonds may be hard but they are not indestructible. They can damage or scratch other jewellery, so we advise you to keep your diamond jewellery separately. We recommend that you clean your diamonds regularly so they retain their full lustre.
The quality of a diamond depends upon the colour, the number of impurities and how it is cut. Carat (ct) is a unit of weight for gems e.g. diamonds. The weight of one carat is 200 mg.
Our silver jewellery is composed of 92.5% silver, the rest being copper and other metals. Silver jewellery is subject to oxidation, so the best way to avoid this is simply to polish your silver regularly. You will get the best results if you use a specially made silver polish.
A church wedding is a fantastic event for a loving couple. How can a wedding go to:
The bride's relatives and friends are always to the left of the aisle while the groom sits on the right. At the front is the next of kin. Parents should enter the last before it is time for the bride and groom. If it is the bride's father to send the bride, for he bride at his right hand through the aisle while the groom already find themselves at the altar. Unless the bride is given away by a family member goes the bride and groom in together after a priest and smånäbbar, the bride and groom on the left to the right, to the strains of the wedding march.
If you have a best man, he is already at the altar to the rings. Now the pastor preach about why people get married and what is expected of each one. So the big question - "do you take this ............ "And of course, the answer to this question -" YES! "
This is followed by the blessing and the promise to love each other and be faithful to each other until death do them part. So it's time to the pastor's request to give the bride her ring, or exchange rings if you have one each. Then the priest proclaims that the couple is now married to each other. After vigseltal and hymn, it is time to move out of the church in the reverse order in force for entry.

Quality of diamonds is based on four factors: weight, color, clarity and cut, in English the four C one: Carat, Clarity, Colour and Cut.
Caratvikten is something that most people know. 1 Carat corresponds to 0.2 grams. The word Carat comes from the Arab word for carob tree seeds (kharrub) that the Arabs made use of as weights on their balance scales. They held a weight of 0.195 grams. Diamonds of the same weight can vary depending on how they are cut, they can be low and wide or tall and narrow.
Large diamonds are rarer than small ones, which will affect the price. Small stones with a total weight of 1 carat costs therefore considerably less than if you choose a stone that weighs 1.00 carat total. The weight given in Carat (ct.). Not to be confused with karat (K) to denote the level of fine gold in the metal.
Most diamonds have a slight tint of yellow, brown or blue. Diamonds with a distinct color is one of the rarest gemstones in the world. Very rare is the completely colorless diamonds. In most cases, you use white diamonds, which are divided by color.
Only 20% of the world's diamonds are of such high quality that they can be used for jewelry. The rest is used in industry. To determine the color of a diamond must have a way to compare with known Master Stones. In order to assess the color of the stone can not be encased. Gold color from a rödguldsring can easily confuse the eye in a color assessment of an encased stone.
