  1. Spotlight on Yellow Gold Engagement Rings

    This halo style engagement ring features a rectangular halo with a 1 carat emerald cut center diamond and 0.875 carats total weight of round brilliant accent diamonds.

    We're all about yellow gold! Known for its warm, rich glow, it has been lovingly used to create jewelry and engagement rings for centuries. It is perfect for a timeless look and for couples seeking a vintage-inspired engagement ring.  Is a yellow gold engagement ring right for you?

    All About Those Karats

    Confused about the difference between karats and carats? Karat denotes a metal's purity, and carat measures the weight of diamonds and gemstones. The most common yellow gold that you’ll come across is 14kt and 18kt gold.

    • 14kt gold is 14 parts gold and 10 parts alloy, making it 58.3% gold.
    • 18kt gold is 18 parts gold and 6 parts alloy, making it 75% gold, making 18kt gold purer than 14kt gold.
    • 18kt gold is an ideal gold mixture because it combines durability, purity, and beauty.
    • 24kt is considered to be pure gold, but it is typically too soft to use for jewelry.

    Yellow Gold and Diamonds

    A yellow gold setting will help hide the color of a faint diamond, so you can go lower on the diamond color grade scale for your center stone. This can help save you money compared to a white gold or platinum setting that might make color more obvious. If you are looking for a vintage-style engagement ring, the warm hues of a faint diamond and the rich tone of yellow gold might be perfect.

    Yellow Gold Facts

    • Yellow gold is extremely durable with a lifespan of 20-30 years.
    • Yellow gold should be polished and cleaned regularly. Because gold is a softer element, it is subject to dents and scratches no matter what karat you get.
    • 18kt gold is the most hypoallergenic option for yellow gold jewelry. 18kt gold is purer in gold content, so it will have less nickel in it than 14kt gold or 10kt gold.
    • Yellow gold is also a better hypoallergenic option than white gold, which often contains higher levels of nickel in order to give it a silver appearance.
    • Yellow gold generally looks best on those with a warm or neutral skin tone.

  2. Say "I Do" with Rose Gold Wedding Bands

    You say, "I will" with your engagement ring, but you say "I do" with your wedding band. Wedding bands are a complement to your engagement ring. While some brides opt for a single ring through engagement and marriage, most couples choose a wedding band to complete their engagement ring.

    Your wedding band can be a perfect match to your engagement ring, or it can feature a different style, metal color, or gemstones. Your engagement ring and wedding band— or wedding bands!— are totally up to you. Choose a ring combination that matches your personal style and taste.

    If you appreciate romantic, feminine designs, we suggest considering rose gold wedding bands. This style is warm and beautiful, and the metal color is the perfect backdrop to help diamonds and gemstones truly shine!

  4. Jewelry for Him from GDS

    Celebrating Him is just as important and treasuring Her!

    Today’s men are sophisticated, stylish and elegant and there is no better gift than jewelry for him. Here are just a few reasons to think about jewelry the next time you are shopping for your man.

    Jewelry is Intrinsically Valuable

    We all love the way jewelry looks but it also has real value that stands the test of time. Unlike electronics or clothes of a thousand other things-when you give a gift of fine jewelry to a man, he will still have it in 2O years and this means a lot!

    Men’s Jewelry is a Unique Expression of His Individuality

    In a world filled with mass produced everything it becomes very difficult to separate your sense of style from the pack. Men’s jewelry is one way to do this. Adding a pair of cufflinks for example is like adding a breath of fresh- air to a beautiful suit. Stylish men’s dressing is all about the details and cufflinks or a tie clip allow a man to make a suit his own.

    Gems & Minerals are Just Fun

    About 90% of geologists and rock collectors are men. This is because gems and minerals are both fun and interesting. Geology is an artful blend of physics, chemistry and history. Precious and semi-precious stones are the kings of geology. Men can wear larger stones than a woman and they look absolutely fabulous. If your man loves rocks, it’s time to introduce him to Jewelry and the wonderful diversity of gems that are available in jewelry designs for men. This is an amazing world and GDS located in Clearwater, FL invites you to come into the store and explore!

  5. 5 Steps to Find Her Perfect ENGAGEMENT RING

    When deciding to pop the question and planning a proposal, finding the perfect engagement ring is often the biggest challenge. You know you want to spend the rest of your life with her... but it's quite normal to not know her favorite engagement ring styles!

    You can propose without a ring or shop for an engagement ring together, but there is nothing like a surprise proposal with the engagement ring in hand! Here we share tips to learn about out her dream engagement ring styles without her knowing!

    Her closet can reveal a lot about her personal style and preferences. Does she prefer bold, daring styles or is she more classic and conservative? Her engagement ring should coordinate with her personal style so this tip is big.

    If you are planning a surprise proposal, remember the less people you ask, the better! Ask her close family and friends if she has mentioned styles she prefers or even consider asking them to look at rings online or at a local jeweler with you.
