Engagement Ring Shopping… Where to Start?

When you are out shopping for jewelry, you tend to recall what clothing you have sitting in your closet, right? You find yourself looking for complementing jewelry pieces that you can accessorize with your daytime and evening wardrobe to make a statement of your taste and style. Keep in mind to NOT have this same mentality when you are engagement ring shopping. The design of this everyday ring should not matter whether you are wearing lounge pants, jeans, or a fancy dress. Your engagement ring deserves to make its own statement as a piece that reflects your individual identity and unique personality.

We have gathered some of our favorite jewelry designers carried exclusively by Icing On The Ring to share with you why their collections are our favorites:

Danhov’s handmade designs convey a precise and innovative feel. They are also known to have eco-friendly jewelry.

Tacori’s one-of-a-kind designs are easily recognizable and unmistakable with their patented signature crescents accenting every one of their heirloom-oriented rings.

Gabriel&Co’s intricate, delicate styles present classic themes with art-deco influences to their collection of rings.

Engagement Ring Selfie 101

Yes! He finally popped the question and now you have to share the news with the world. Right after you update your Facebook relationship status to engaged, everyone will be requesting a quick pic of your engagement ring. We created “Engagement Ring Selfie 101” to give brides tips on sharing the best #EngagementRingSelfie their family, friends, and followers have ever seen.

Color me captivated

color

Artists across the world rejoice when it comes to colorful images. Colors captivate audiences and your engagement ring should be shown in all its glory. The world is your palette and you should think about colors like an artist. Mix and match the color of the stone on your engagement ring to give contrast to your picture. Contrast is important in drawing attention to the main object. For example, a blue diamond or sapphire would look most vibrant and dynamic using an orange hue color scheme. Bold colors, vibrant backgrounds, your nails, or even the gem itself can capture the essence of your engagement ring. Colors can also create the mood of the picture. Warm colors have more of an orange or yellow tinge while cooler colors have a blue tint. Play around with these hues and you can set the mood of your engagement ring selfie, whether it’s a warm fuzzy feeling or the coolness of the rock on your finger.

Assess angles and shift settings

When taking your engagement ring selfie, keep in mind that sometimes your favorite details show best when looking at your ring on an angle. Play with that idea. You may even want to break out your camera’s instruction manual and look up the “macro” settings. When you find the perfect perspective, the macro setting will focus in on it. Get those creative juices flowing and start some hand modeling!

If the cut is excellent, the shine is magnificent

lighting

The cut of the diamond is the chosen style or design used when shaping the stone. The cut factors in symmetry, proportion, and polish. When cut properly, diamonds appear more luminous. Always remember that a diamond’s cut unleashes its light. As you notice the complex cut of your diamond, you will see a number of facets that add to the sparkle of your engagement ring. Lighting is one way to show off the luminous cut and breathtaking sparkle of your diamond. Many photographers take advantage of the “golden hour” to achieve perfect lighting. The time of day may vary depending on the season; however, we recommend using the time frame of approximately one hour before sunset. It’s the perfect time of day for natural light that will make your gems shine bright.

Find a brilliant backdrop

While your engagement ring will be the focus of the image, you can really show your personality in the backdrop. Try placing your hand on your favorite magazine, show off the company he bought the ring from, or take shots in front of your favorite spot. An interesting backdrop will increase the quality of your engagement ring selfie quite a bit.
backdrop

Your engagement ring deserves its own spotlight. The key to a good photo is to make sure the audience knows what the main focus is. In this case, it’s your engagement ring. Using all those different techniques such as color contrasting and lighting, you can focus on capturing the essence of your engagement ring. Try not to make the image too cluttered, and choose just one of your best shots. Less is more and selecting only one photo will stand out for sure.

Crop & Photoshop

There are countless photo sharing tools for smartphones that can turn any regular picture into a work of art. The world of photography apps is endless and there are countless free options. Instagram is perhaps the most recognizable. With so many available filters, effects, and cropping tools, your engagement ring selfie will certainly stand out from the rest.

Find The Right Ring

We will show you how the color, clarity, cut, and carat can affect the appearance of the diamond in your engagement ring. And we will guide you through every step in choosing a quality and awe-inspiring ring. Once your heart or sweetheart finds the perfect ring, it’s time for your friends and family to see the hand of the new bride-to-be

Valentine’s Day can present a problem when it comes to gift-giving. Luckily, Icing On The Ring has plenty of experience when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts, for both him and her. Whether you’re just getting started in your relationship or have known each other for decades, we have plenty of small somethings that will be cherished for years to come.

For Him

Men often get overlooked when it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day, so this year make sure he knows that you care by surprising him with a token of love.

Watches are always a great option for guys because they can be symbolic as well as useful. When he glances at his wrist, he’ll not only be reminded of your thoughtfulness, but also of all the time you’ve spent together, and the time yet to come.

For fashion-forward gentlemen, don’t overlook the idea of getting him jewelry. Icing On The Ring has necklaces and bracelets that have been designed especially for men, with masculine lines and metals. There are also cuff links, which make an elegant accent to any well-dressed outfit.

If you’re not sure of what your guy likes because your relationship is still new, consider something useful, but with an elegant twist, such as a pen set or a flask set.

For Her

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, nothing says you care like a small token of love. In the spirit of the holiday, try something with a heart. We have a variety of heart-shaped pendants available in prices that will fit every budget. From diamond-encrusted hearts to Zirconia options, Icing On The Ring has something that will make every woman fall in love.


If necklaces aren’t really her thing, consider a ring in rose gold or a pretty pink. We also have earrings and bracelets that can be perfect for the holiday, like our Silver Red Zirconia Heart Earrings or White Gold Garnet & Diamond Heart Earrings. You can also choose a bracelet or pair of earrings that can be worn any day of the year.

Whatever your lady love’s style, from classic to vintage or super modern, Icing On The Ring has gift options and rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings that will make any woman happy to receive a small box on Valentine’s Day.

Can’t decide or don’t know what the special person in your life will like best? Call Icing On The Ring or stop by our showroom in the Los Angeles Jewelry District for expert advice.

The New Year doesn’t just mark the start of a new calendar and a bunch of forgotten resolutions. For wedding industry insiders, the New Year is the start of a new quarter filled with wedding shows and the opportunity to give brides a look at new ways to celebrate lasting love.

Wedding shows give brides-to-be a look at some of the biggest players in the industry, from jewelry manufacturers, designers, watchmakers and more—basically everything you could ever hope to know about celebrating your lasting love. Some wedding shows are local and focus on vendors that can help you in your area, while some shows are huge extravaganzas that attract experts from all over the world. Icing On The Ring likes to walk the halls in both types of events, to make sure that every bride gets the chance to look her brightest come the big day.

Icing On The Ring will be at the upscale Unveiled—Bridal Style Revealed in Los Angeles on March 24.

Set to take place on April 13, 2013, the Icing On The Ring Tacori trunk show gives buyers a chance to view some of the beautiful, highly sought-after handcrafted Tacori rings. Special incentives and promotional financing will be available for this one-day event.  Decades of expertise have made Tacori a leader in fine jewelry, decorating countless stars as they parade down the red carpet or the wedding aisle.

As part of our devotion to finding the best possible producers, Icing On The Ring is also going to be in Las Vegas early June for the jewelry industry’s biggest trade-only show, The JCK Show, which attracts more than 2,500 participants from all over the world.

In April, 2012 I flew across the country from New Jersey to visit Icing on The Ring. While most people visit the store to purchase engagement rings, wedding rings or other fine jewelry, I had a different thought in mind.

I had met Owner Vic Rupchian at several industry trade shows and shared with a number of proposals on how our services of our marketing and design firm could help his business. After getting to know him through many emails and phone conversations, I was so impressed with Vic’s vision and passion for his company, I had to see the store first hand.

One of the ideas we had discussed was to create a separate blog that focused on sharing ideas and useful information that would empower engaged couples to be jewelry savvy when buying either an engagement ring or wedding band. When I got to the store, the whole concept was validated. Icing on the Ring is an amazing store and environment for wedding and engagement ring shopping; open, spacious, classy and comfortable with private viewing rooms that honor the privacy needed to make such an important decision. Their selection is amazing and now includes their Jewelry District exclusive offering of the famed wedding jewelry brand Tacori.

But equally as impressive was the warmth and knowledge of each family member who collectively contributes to the flourishing of the store. I really enjoyed talking with Mr. Rupchian, Vic’s father, the company founder who sits in his office, a visible workstation setting stones and repairing jewelry as a true example of preserving an art that technology can never disturb.

We are proud that our company discovered the domain name and designed this blog and am honored to be associated with a store that is all about style, service and craftsmanship.
