Diamond Prices News Roundup - April 2014

Retail diamond prices declined in April following slight increases in March. Retail diamond price changes are based on Pricescope's database of over 450,000 diamonds from retail stores. According to Rapaport, demand for certified polished diamonds softened, as retailers' diamond-buying slowed after inventory replenishment during the first quarter of 2014.

Mother's Day Jewelry Gift Ideas

Thu, 01 May 2014

By Erika Winters

It's that time of year when we get to celebrate all of the beautiful mothers in our lives. So if you need a few jewelry gift ideas, here is a guide to help you get started! If you're planning on surprising mom with a sparkly gift, it's always a good idea to look into her jewelry box to see what she likes. Does she favor classic diamond looks or colored gemstones? Does she wear yellow or white metal? Is she more sentimental or fashion-forward? Mother's Day is Sunday, May 11, so you still have time to head to the jewelry store to find the perfect piece for mom! And don't forget to make her feel like a queen for a day!
