Picking the perfect engagement ring

When planning an engagement, one must take into consideration a lot of different variables before getting that special ring. You need to make sure that the engagement ring you’re getting fits the person’s personality. If you’re proposing to someone, you want to make sure that you buy a ring appropriate to the time you’ve been together. If you have been with the person long term, spending a significant amount on an engagement ring is definitely worth it. What’s even more significant than price is that fact that you should know the person you’re buying the engagement ring for. It’s helpful to know if they are allergic to any precious metals. If not, find out if they prefer platinum or gold. If gold is their precious metal of choice, find out if they like white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold.

Personalizing the design of the engagement ring also adds a unique touch. A gem is a great way to accent an engagement ring, but make sure you know what gem to get. It makes a difference…a very big difference. Popular gems of choice are usually diamonds or colored precious and semi-precious gems. Knowing the 4 C’s of diamonds is very important in order to choose the right diamond for your budget. Understanding the difference between certifications like GIA and EGL will also be helpful in picking the perfect diamond for the engagement ring. There are several different shapes such as round, princess, cushion, heart, pear, emerald, radiant, oval, and more. Some ladies desire a specific brand of engagement rings such as the exquisite, yet timeless, designs of Tacori. There is a vast amount of choices you can select from, but picking the perfect engagement ring will make all the difference to your special someone. Remember that the more personal you make the ring, the more sentimental it will be now and forever. You’ll always be the apple of her eye if you present the engagement ring of her dreams. Visit Icing On The Ring in LA and our expert jewelers will help you pick the perfect engagement ring.

Hollywood movies may always have happy endings, with couples finding lasting love in innocuous settings from bookstores to subways. But in real life, lasting love seems to elude much of the Hollywood elite. However, we’ve rounded up a look at some of the rare Hollywood couples that have managed to find lasting love, despite the high turnover rates.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have partnered together on many film and television projects, including Volunteers, Sleepless in Seattle, and That Thing You Do as well as My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Married since 1988, the couple seems to have found lasting love. Whether on or off-screen, the couple has a chemistry that works, thanks to their dedication to maintaining their private lives in the public eye.

Despite rock stars having notoriously busy schedules, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have been married since 2002, a rarity in the celebrity world. Although the couple has had their ups and downs, they still manage to stay together, despite constant rumors of their lasting love coming to an end.

Despite his reputation as a ladies’ man, Warren Beatty finally settled down with Annette Benning in 1991. The couple made their lasting love official in 1992 and have since gone on to have children.

Another celebrity couple that has been together since 1988 is Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon. Despite having different schedules that keep them apart for long periods of time, the couple are committed to making sure that lasting love is always a priority by compromising and putting their relationship first.

John Travolta and Kelly Preston have been weathering rumors of a breakup since 1991, when they first tied the knot. Despite the rumors and personal tragedies, John and Kelly seem to have found lasting love because, so far, nothing has managed to break them up.

In some cases, the secret to a famous couple having lasting love is because only half the couple is a celebrity. Like Bono & his wife Alison Hewson. The pair have been together since 1975, but only put a ring on it in 1982. The couple work on many projects together and Alison has become known in philanthropic circles for her devotion to various causes.

Then there’s Dolly Parton and her husband, Carl Dean. Although Dolly likes to stand out, with big hair and even bigger jewelry, her husband is a notorious recluse. The couple met at a Laundromat back in 1964, showing that you never know where lasting love will turn up.

While many celebrity couples decide to celebrate their lasting love with a supersized engagement ring, not every couple that is lucky enough to find lasting love can afford a big rock. At Icing On The Ring, couples can find a multitude of affordable engagement ring options and professional advice on picking the right one for them. Give us a call or stop by our expansive showroom in the Los Angeles Jewelry District to find the ring that completes your lasting love.

The New Year presents a new opportunity to find lasting love. If you’ve decided to put aside your college days of a different date for every night of the week and want to settle down, there are plenty of experts, of both sexes, that have advice on finding lasting love. Celebrating love is our specialty, so we’ve scoured the web for top-notch dating advice from experts who have studied lasting love.

If you think you’ve found the one, it doesn’t mean you have to stop looking. According to Rori Raye, author of best-selling eBook “Have The Relationship You Want,” keep your options open by accepting dates and discovering what you do and don’t want out of a relationship. When looking for lasting love, can it really last if you have to listen to someone slurp coffee every morning?

Whether you are in a relationship, or looking to start one, researchers have found that lasting love has several characteristics. Terri Orbuch, a psychologist and researcher at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research who has been studying more than 370 couples since 1986, has illustrated them for eHarmony:

1. Have realistic expectations
2. Sweat the small stuff
3. Consider yourselves a team
4. Accentuate the positive
5. Remember the little things
6. Have strong friendships with both sexes
7. Spend time apart

Seth Meyers, Psy.D., is a clinical psychologist with the L.A. County Department of Mental Health who has appeared on nationally syndicated shows, including ABC’s “Good Morning America” and has published extensively on the subject of lasting love. According to the male relationship guru, here are some things to keep in mind while on your search for the perfect mate:

1. Don’t think to yourself that you’ve found “The One” until you’ve been together for more than several months.
2. Don’t bring the potential candidate for lasting love home to meet friends and family for at least a month—and only then if there are no red flags. If anything stands up and shouts crazy, it is probably a no-go.
3. Come up with a mantra to keep yourself focused on the big picture, rather than your newfound intimacy. Meyers suggests, “Focus on whether you like him, not whether he likes you,” or “If it’s meant to be, she’ll call; if not, I’ll have more energy to look for someone else.”

Once you’ve found your lasting love, you will probably want to commemorate the occasion with a ring symbolic of your relationship. At Icing On The Ring, there is a huge selection of rings to choose from, for every budget. Stop by our expansive showroom in the Los Angeles Jewelry District or give us a call for some guidance on finding the right ring to commemorate your lasting love.

While few things are constant in your wardrobe, thanks to seasonal changes, styles going out faster than they moved in, that pesky matter of weight fluctuations, one thing that will last forever, no matter what your hair color happens to be, is your engagement ring.

Finding lasting love is no easy task—you’ve probably kissed more than a few frogs on your way to finding your prince. Once you have found him, you will need the perfect accessory to make sure that your ring finger sparkles as brightly as your love—and matches your personal style.

Each couple is unique in their approach to engagement ring shopping. Many men end up floundering around before they find “the ring.” Other couples find that their lasting love has created an openness in the relationship and they are able to shop for rings together. With other couples, she wants to be surprised, but not “too surprised” so she drops hints. Hints can mean mentioning celebrity engagement rings that she admires or even sending her BFF ring shopping. Further subtle and not-so-subtle hints may include things like gawking at every nearby jewelry store or sighing over the romance of the season, which is generally any time from the holidays to Valentine’s Day. A more direct approach could be sending links to rings and engagement announcements or leaving magazines open to ring ads.

Once your man has taken the hint, be sure to know exactly what you want, whether it’s a classic white diamond solitaire that will go with your chinos and tennis dresses or a colored stone that will pop against the black that makes up most of your wardrobe. Be sure to consider all of your personal preferences when you hint around; if you’re very active you may not want stones that go all the way around the band because you may knock them out. If you tend to work with your hands, one large center stone may be unwieldy, so a more balanced 3-stone setting could be better. As far as cut and clarity, you can do your research on those, but an expert jeweler can demonstrate and explain what they mean and how you know what to look for.

 When you start hunting around for the perfect engagement ring, remember that the ring is just a token to represent your lasting love, not necessarily a material possession that takes a lot of funding. There are plenty of beautiful and affordable rings available that will suit any couple’s finances. Because an engagement ring might not be the secret to lasting love, but it sure does accessorize it nicely.

We might not be able to help you find your true love, but we can help you find the perfect engagement ring. Stop by Icing On The Ring in the L.A. Jewelry District or feel free to give us a call for some advice. After all, like lasting love, diamonds are forever, so you want to make sure you make the perfect selection.
