Diamond in the Royal Wedding

Today is a special day for Prince William & Kate Middleton-the Royal Wedding. Best wishes to Prince William & Kate Middleton. God bless the queen! In my jewelry blog I had posted an article about the wedding jewelry trend in the royal wedding last week. What will be worn at the Royal Wedding is a hot question recently. We all know that Prince William presented Miss Kate with his mother’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring, a fitting touch to honor the late Princess Diana. Diamond would be a highlight in the Royal Wedding.

A diamond is for love. It is the most popular gemstone for engagement rings, and also the gem for both the 10th and 60th marriage anniversaries. It was said that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds which have a magic that nothing else can ever quite equal. For centuries the diamond has had the unique status of being the ultimate gift of love. Today at the Royal Wedding, I believe, the diamond in the ring worn by the bride Kate Middleton would be the most shinning.

Rose in beads

Handmade jewelry bears different types of beads, which have been known to be made of glass, porcelain, gemstones, wood, metal, silver and even seed. The choice of bead, size and color is not dependent on the maker, but the jewelry designer who decide which type of piece being made.

The different between drop, charms and pendants?

When it comes to pendants, drops and charms, there are lots of choices like European bead charms (clip on charms), crystal drops, prayer box pendants… They are all jewelry supplies used in beading. Although you can use pendants, charms or drops in beading, here I remind all jewelry maker the technical differences between the three.

drop, charms and pendants

drop, charms and pendants

The first is the simplest. A jewelry charm is smaller the 25mm and does not have a fixed bail. Then it’s a drop. A drop has a top-drilled hole that goes from one side to the other. It does not have a fixed bail, loop or jump ring, and does not need to be modified in order to lay correctly when strung. Just look at the crystal in my picture.

Pendants are pieces that are 25mm or larger (not including the bail, loop or jump ring). If it does not have a bail, loop or jump ring, then its hole will be drilled or punched from front to back. If a pendant is smaller than 25mm, it will have a fixed bail or loop (Swarovski is the exception). Look at the Thomas and the Tibetan in my picture.
