    Heart Shaped Engagement Rings: Romantic and Beautiful

    A heart shaped diamond makes a unique Valentine’s Day engagement ring. The heart shape is actually a modification of the brilliant cut. These are beautiful stones to consider for a Valentine’s Day proposal.

    The technical name for this stone is the “Heart-Shaped Modified Brilliant.” These stones commonly have 59 facets, although this can vary. The length/width ratio can vary producing hearts that are fatter or skinnier depending on the natural character of the rough diamond. Symmetry and a distinct cleft are two things to look for in addition to the 4-Cs in a heart shaped diamond.

  • 2017 Jewelry Trends from GDS

    It’s a brand new year, with a series of new jewelry trends making a splash in the Jewelry industry. Each year brings a host of innovative new styles and jewelry trends and this year is no different. 2017 has arrived and we’re taking a look at the best trends for the year. 

    Vintage Inspired Designs

    It’s clear that vintage inspired designs are here to stay. Designers are creating radiant pieces which draw on inspirations from the past while incorporating contemporary materials and design elements. It’s an elegant marriage of classic and cutting edge producing stunning new jewelry with  heirloom sophistication.

    Juleve 1.26ct Ruby Pink and White Diamond Pendant

    Brilliant Jewel Tones

    The classic diamond is no longer the only stone taking center stage. Brilliant "exotic" stones such as Morganite, Fire Opals, and even Sapphires and Rubies are taking the lead. Color allows buyers to put their own personal twist on either an engagement ring or a pendant necklace. Alluring gemstones of all kinds are being used to create bold, eye-catching pieces. Using brilliant colors allows designers and buyers alike a whole new dimension of expression and emotion in their jewelry.

     18K Ruby & Diamond Ring

    Earthy Jewels

    Fun jewelry pieces that remain closer to the original stone produce designs that incorporate rather than overtake natural gemstones. The resulting pieces are earthy and beautiful. Our Juleve Collection has been a leader in this trend for years. Often what Mother Nature creates needs little improvement.


    Juleve Fire Opal & Diamond Slide Pendant

    Drop Earrings

    Drop earrings can do wonders and take years off a woman's face.  They elongate the neck and bring color and beauty to a woman's eyes. Sexy and playful, they can also be sophisticated and glamorous.  Whether you're sporting an up do, french bun, braids, top knot or a relaxed ponytail, big earrings make a big statement in 2017.

    Yael Designs Emerald & Diamond Earrings

    Gold and Diamond Source in Clear Water  has all the latest jewelry trends for 2017 and we are excited to show them to you!
