Denver Engagement Rings

Pink diamond engagement rings offer a unique blend of traditional taste plus some personality. Many brides want a diamond engagement ring because it is a symbol of love and commitment, but they also want a unique ring that is one-of-a-kind.

Pink diamonds are a great way to bring a unique taste to a ring that cannot be matched by the traditional colorless diamonds. Fancy colored diamonds are very rare, and also very expensive. These gemstones contain minerals within the stone that create the color. There are only a few places in the world that mine pink diamonds, and if you have the pocketbook to pay for a pink diamond then it is the perfect choice for you.

But, many people do not have the cash to pay for a pink diamond engagement ring, so instead they may choose to have a fake fancy color diamond-- meaning that the color is man-made, it is created to look just like the real gemstone.

Some couples choose a pink diamond engagement ring to symbolize their love, and they have the ring setting designed uniquely for the stone that is used. Combining a pink diamond with other smaller, colorless diamonds creates a brilliant ring. The smaller clear diamonds will add an accent to the main stone, which in turn brings out even more of the pink color.

One of the biggest advantages to owning a pink diamond engagement ring, is that you know that the gemstone is going to hold it's value well-- and probably even become more valuable over time. The supply of pink diamonds is quickly depleting, so these special gemstones will become more and more valuable as time goes on.

The most important aspect of purchasing a diamond engagement ring is that you find the perfect ring for you-- match the design and style to your own personality and taste. There are many ring options out there, take your time to find your perfect ring.

Denver Gold Buyers

If you're looking to sell gold or sell jewelry in Denver, you should go to FJR Jewelers on West Colfax just a few miles west of downtown Denver. They pay top dollar for any kind of gold jewelry, diamond jewelry, silver, even broken jewelry!

Many gold sellers go to FJR Diamond and Gold because they know they pay well. I brought an old piece of gold jewelry to a pawn shop and was offered half of what FJR had offered me. I obviously went back to FJR and sold my jewelry to them.

If you have any old jewelry you don't wear, you should sell gold to FJR Jewelers. They also take trade-ins on jewelry if you are looking to get a new piece of gold jewelry or even a diamond.

They buy antique jewelery, old jewelry, gold and diamond jewelry, broken jewelry and have a wide variety of jewelry in their store for sale as well. They also make custom jewelry! If you're looking for a Denver Jewelry store that you can sell your gold to, make sure to check out FJR Jewelers,

Buying Cheap Jewelry

No matter how much you buy your jewelry, it must look rich. After all jewels are supposed to convey an impression of riches. You need to sparkle in that dress and the jewel will bring that effect to you. Jewels are essentially expensive items. Gold, diamond or platinum can command thousands of Dollars in price. For a couple on a budget, you would have to improvise many ways to arrive at a magnificent look.

Begin your search for cheap jewelry online. Many sites sell bridal ornaments. Compare their prices and see if any have discounts on them. Especially look for sites with sales. They are in the process of clearing their stocks and could give you price reductions you cannot have anywhere. Bridal fairs coming up in your area are places you can find discount jewelry too. Vendors are looking for ways to make sales and would therefore bring out their wares on low prices for patronage by prospective couples.

You should also be aware that every mineral has its replica. Many of these replicas are hard to detect. You can have Cz as a replacement for diamond. The mineral looks and sparkles like diamond but costs far less. You can use this in your bridal dress decoration.

It would cost less to embellish your dress with silver instead of diamond. Again, you can opt for gold plated items instead of real gold. The two look alike and the difference cannot be easily detected. It is better to buy all your jewels from one place. You can better negotiate for a discount.

eBay is a good place to buy jewelry. You can go for auctions or buy straight away. The jewel you put on during your event will determine how far you sparkle. On your wedding day you need to look your best. Buy cheap but elegant minerals and make your day glitter.

5 Tips for Purchasing Jewelry online

By Claire Simon

Purchasing jewelry online offers may advantages, the biggest being saving a ton of money. However while the reward increases, the risk increases as well. There are simple precautions you can take to safeguard yourself against not-so-honest online retailers and ensure you get exactly what you pay for. Below are 5 simple methods to ensure a safe experience when buying diamond jewelry online:

1- Know the exact details of the item you are purchasing. Many online jewelry retailers do not provide enough information about the product they are selling. Factors such as Total Carat Weight, Diamond Color and Clarity, the number of diamonds included in the item, the quality of gold or metal, etc. should all be clearly identified. If you are missing just one of these pieces of information, you may not end up with the item you believe you are purchasing.
2- Always check the return policy. You should always have an option to return the item, even if you just don't like it. Note the specifics of the Return Policy, as some retailers only allow returns if the item is damaged, some charge a restocking fee and many online retailers will only provide 5-7 days to return the ring. The optimal policy will allow you to return the item within 30 days with no questions asked.
3- Does the company offer any type of warranty? What happens if a diamond falls out 2 days after you receive the jewelry? It is then most likely a manufacturer's defect and you should not be held responsible to pay for the repair. Make sure the company offers some sort of free protection plan or warranty to cover manufacturer's defects.
4- Is the online retailer a member of the Better Business Bureau? Don't just assume they are if they show the seal! A one minute online inquiry with the BBB will show if the company is an accredited member and if they've received any complaints within the last 12 months. Also look to see if the company belongs to any industry organizations. Any reputable jewelry retailer will have membership to jewelry organizations.
5- Is the site secure? Make sure the site uses SSL encryption software and has a privacy policy in tact. They should state clearly that they do not share or sell your personal information with any outside sources. Also make sure the online jewelry retailer has partnered with a company that monitors each transaction and guarantees each purchase to be 100% safe and secure. If they don't state the security features prominently, most likely it's because they don't have it! Purchasing jewelry online can save you a lot of money and afford you a beautiful piece of jewelry. Be cautious and follow the above practices and you should have a safe online shopping experience!

Englewood Jeweler

There are a few Englewood Jewelers that offer exceptional service and great jewelry and an even better price. There are also the ones that try to rip you off by charging way more than they need to or even try to sell you someting that your not looking for.

That is not how FJR Jewelers is out of Lakewood. They offer an unbeatable service and will go the extra mile to satisfy their customers. Englewood jewelry stores can't compete with FJR jewelers pricing and their ability to make custom jewelry. When I visited FJR and was looking for a pendant for my mother, they didn't have anything that I was looking for but told me they could custom make any jewelry. So I descriped what I was looking for and he drew something up. I decided to go ahead with the project and a week later he had created a piece of jewlery better than I had ever imagined! The price was reasonable too!

FJR also buys old or broken jewelry, diamonds and gold from individuals too!

Lakewood Jeweler

There are many Lakewood Jewelry stores to buy gold jewelry from along with diamonds and silver. Some of the Lakewood jewelry stores don't have the most welcoming staff and I have even felt pressured to make a purchase by some of the Lakewood jewelers. I recently went into FJR Jewelers and was very happy to meet the owner Bill Garlutzo. He told me he had much more diamonds in the back and that if there was some jewelry I wanted, he could get it for me.

I liked the fact that they also purchased gold and old jewelry from individuals. I think this helped make FJR Jewelers pricing lower than all of the other Lakewood Jewelery stores and they certainly were much more friendly than the other jewelers.

I recommend anyone to use FJR Jewelers for any Englewood, Lakewood, or Denver jewelry needs. Check out their website at

Englewood Jewelry Store

I have struggled with finding a Englewood Jewelry store that offered a good selection and pricing that is easy on my wallet. I was hoping to find something nice for my anniversary but everywhere I had gone in Englewood was too expensive. I decided to check out a jewelry store in Lakewood just a few minutes north and was very pleased with the jewelry I found.

When I went to FJR Jewelers on Colfax Ave I wasn't sure if I was going to find what I was looking for but when I talked to the owner, they really had a lot of jewelry. Not all of it was in their display cases, they had a lot of diamond jewelry and gold jewelry in the back. They are in the process of opening another Englewood Jewelry store south of their current location.

I really liked the pricing of all of the jewelry FJR Jewelers had. They buy jewelry from individuals so sometimes you can find a good price on gold or diamonds. FJR Jewelers had a very nice and helpful staff as well. It was worth the drive to the Lakewood Jewelry store instead of wasting my time with all of the over priced Englewood jewelry stores.
