A Passion for Pink: Pink Diamonds & Pink Sapphires

Wednesday, October 12, 2016 6:58:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Pretty in Pink at Jeffrey Daniels and Gem Platinum means pink sapphires and pink diamonds. No two stones could be more different in their appeal. Choose your shade and dive into the fabulous world of pink gemstones. You will never look back.

Pink Sapphires

Pink sapphires are the hot sibling of the gracious deep blue most people associate with sapphires. Electric and alive, pink sapphires are the perfect stone for cocktail rings and a night out on the town.

Hot pink isn’t just for her, the Cabachon pink tourmaline ring shown below brings a bit of fun for him too. Like the pink sapphire, pink tourmaline is not the color commonly associated with this stone. Pink tourmaline is possibly created through the introduction of radiation to the stone during formation. Magnesium also produces pink and red hues in gemstones. Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors and hues outside the olive green it is commonly associated with. The hot pink stone used in the Jeffrey Daniels design below is one of the best examples of pink tourmaline in both color and clarity. Interestingly, some of the best pink tourmaline comes from e Cryo-Genie Mine in San Diego, CA.

This pink diamond wedding ring from Gem Platinum is a fabulous way to say I DO. The rose gold setting adds to the elegance and grace of the stones in this eternally classic band.

Pink Diamonds are part of the Fancy Diamond category and they are some of the rarest gemstones available. Fancy Pink Diamonds are graded according to the depth of their pink color, the deeper the color, the more expensive the stone.

Unlike hot pink sapphires, the pink in diamonds is an elegant pastel shade of pink. Radiation introduced during formation is thought to be the driving force behind the pink color in these diamonds. Known also for their clarity and brilliance, pink diamonds larger than 1 carat are very, very rare.

Holiday 2016: Fancy Diamonds

Colored diamonds come in white, steel gray, blue, orange, yellow, red, green, pink to purple, black and brown. All of these are beautiful colors. Fall and coming winter holidays are perfect for yellow diamonds.

Orange, yellow, and red suit the turning colors of autumn and thanksgiving. Red and green stones work for Christmas. Black or white diamonds dazzel the eye with the snow and set the winter mood.

Mixed Gold: 2016 Trend, But will it Last?

Mixed gold can be eye-catching and alluring but is it just a trend? Are mixed gold pieces here to stay? Combination metal designs can be fantastic. White and yellow gold when combined create a dazzling complement to each other. Mixed gold goes with most anything as well, usually working with most gems, a subtle medley of colors can accentuate jewels. The secret with mixing golds is to strike a balance or a rhythm with the alternating colors that makes sense. This approach enhances the diamonds themselves and turns what could be a passing trend into a classic design.

Openwork Bracelets the Perfect Gift

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 2:14:00 PM America/Los_Angeles

Jeffrey Daniels designs use openwork to great effect throughout the entire collection. Using the finest materials, such as 18K gold and Fancy Diamonds, Jeffrey Daniels and Gem Platinum designs are unique and special. Openwork used in bracelets reduces weight and adds negative space to the designs to create pieces that are wearable, breathtaking pieces of art.

Jeffrey Daniels Fancy Diamond Bracelet

 Jeffrey Daniels Fancy Bracelet

Openwork in Jewelry has been used for thousands of years by a variety of cultures including the Chinese and the Romans. Scythian jewelry was highly prized by the ancient Greeks for its delicate openwork and creative designs. The Scythians, who were nomads from the area of Modern Kazakhstan, developed and perfected openwork jewelry to match their nomadic lifestyle. Openwork makes pieces far lighter and easier to transport. The Greeks and later the Romans came to prize these pieces due to their light weight, design, skill and beauty. The openwork bracelets designed by Jeffrey Daniels display all these same qualities.

Bracelets and Beauty

A diamond bracelet is a breathtaking object. The addition of negative space and openwork adds further dimension and movement further enhancing the light refraction off the gemstones. Each Fancy Diamond catches the light at a slightly different angle drawing the eye around and around the bracelet.

Openwork also allows the jeweler greater room for creative expression. A single line of Fancy Diamonds is amazing but stylistically unoriginal. The addition of openwork gives the jewelry designer the ability to use stones in a variety of shapes including square and pear shaped stones. The resulting bracelets are exceptionally beautiful and captivating.

Halo open work designs used in a bracelet perfectly compliments a halo engagement ring. Because the bracelet repeats the halo design it makes for an excellent anniversary gift.

Choose a Ring that Matches Her Style

Coming in all shapes and sizes, the rings are chosen to reflect the personality of your Fiancée. There are countless types of rings, ranging in color, size, and cut. There are larger rings with more attention to the gem, and there are smaller rings that complement a smaller hand. The attention should not be entirely on the gem. The setting of the gem is just as important. Settings include various colored golds and other stones. Some rings are simple, while others have complex designs.

Color is another important factor to consider. Having the ability to accentuate a person’s undertone, a colored diamond can complete your fiancée. If your significant other is a bright cheery person: pink, red, yellow and orange are complementary colors. Or if they are the more somber, contemplating, silent type: blue, black, or brown may suit her better.

The Allure of the Oval: Diamonds, Sapphires and Opals is the Oval Cut

Thursday, June 9, 2016 8:22:40 PM America/Los_Angeles

The oval shape in gemstones has been around for thousands of years but the modern oval shape for diamonds was perfected in the 1960’s. Jeffrey Daniels and Gem Platinum have a captivating selection of jewelry designed in ovals.

 Oval Cut Diamond in Halo Solitaire Ring

Shop here > Oval Cut Diamond Halo Solitaire Ring In Platinum


The Oval Diamond Cut


The oval diamond cut is a unique variation on the round brilliant cut. Oval cut diamonds characteristically have 56 + facets and the ideal oval diamond is perfectly symmetrical with  a length-to-width ratio of 1.5. There is sometimes a small variation in the symmetry depending on the natural stone. The oval is an exceptionally good cut for engagement rings because it is extremely stable. With no protruding points the oval is a great shape for withstanding the everyday wear that an engagement ring must endure. The shape is also advantageous because the stone can easily be secured with 4 prongs and it is not susceptible to snagging or catching on clothing.


Oval diamonds also have the advantage of appearing slightly larger than their round brilliant cousins for the same carat size. However, the oval diamond is somewhat less forgiving when it comes to the clarity, cut and color of the diamond. This is one of the shapes where it is essential to stick with high quality stones like those used by Jeffrey Daniels and Gem Platinum. When high quality oval diamonds are used the results are amazing. However, lower quality diamonds or poorly cut oval diamonds are easier to spot than in almost any other shape. When a low quality cut is used in an oval diamond a bowtie shadow may be visible in the stone. Similarly, flaws that might not be noticeable in a round cut are much harder to hide in an oval cut diamond. It’s best to stick to oval diamonds with a G color or better on the GIA scale and with clarity of VS1 or higher on GIA or above 3 on the AGS scale.

Oval Opal Rings and Oval Opal Earrings by Jeffrey Daniels


Opals and Ovals just naturally go together. Opals are particularly pleasing as ovals. The opal has been associated with magical powers since the days of the Roman Empire.  The roman word for opal was “opalus.” The fiery colors captured within an opal were thought to be small windows into the eyes of the gods.

Symbols of purity, luck and hope the opal is one of the most diverse gemstones available. Oval Opal rings make fabulous engagement rings and oval opal earrings accentuate both the beauty of a woman’s skin and the fire in her eyes.

Oval Sapphires: Strikingly Beautiful Designs


Oval Sapphires reflect the luck and loyalty of all those that wear them! Traditionally, oval sapphires are a deep blue color, but sapphires also come in stunning shades of pink, yellow and green. The oval shape of a sapphire allows the color of the stone to reflect to it’s best advantage. Oval Sapphires also make stunning engagement rings. Perhaps the most famous oval sapphire engagement of all is the sophisticated oval sapphire engagement ring given to Kate Middleton by Prince William. This is the same ring that was previously given to his to mother, Princess Diana.

Surrounding sapphires with diamonds as seen below, enhances the vibrant color of these stones and brings them an additional quality of elegance.

Jeffrey Daniels Unique Designs and Gem Platinum have been creating amazing designs with Fancy Diamonds for years. However, this May’s sale at Sotheby’s demonstrates two things: First, quality gemstones are in extremely high demand and second, Fancy Diamonds are reaching past the Jewelry Market and into the Collector’s Fine Art Market, a spot previously reserved for the likes of Picasso and Monet.

Shop here > Jeffrey Daniels Classic Drop Earring


At Sotheby’s Geneva May Sale this year, 70% of the lots sold above their hammer estimated prices. There were several stars of the show including a Fancy “Unique Pink” pear shaped diamond that was the largest vivid pink diamond to ever come to auction. This stunning stone weighed in at 15.38 carats, and the sale price of $31.6 million averaging $2,052,094 per carat. Other notable Fancy Diamonds sold this year included the Reza Jewel, a 6.64-carat marquis-shaped Fancy Blue Diamond mounted in a brooch, fetching $13.7 Million, and another Fancy Pink Pendant weighing 18.51 carats that sold for $9.8 Million.


So what does this mean for the jewelry industry?

Or rather, when does Jewelry become Fine Art?

Jeffery Daniels Unique Designs and Gem Platinum have always used the finest stones placed into breathtaking designs.

Our jewelry pieces are individually crafted and no two pieces are ever the same. We strive for timelessness in our designs and we insist on using the highest quality in everything we create.

Interestingly, the increase in low quality products in the jewelry industry seems to have actually elevated quality pieces like ours into the level of Fine Art. As the prices from this year’s Geneva 2016 May Sale demonstrate, there is increased demand for both quality and Fancy Colored Diamonds and we anticipate this trend to continue.

The Wedding Ring to Match Her Style

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 11:54:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

A woman's wedding band is one of a woman’s most cherished pieces of jewelry. Powerful, beautiful and simple, the wedding band rarely gets the amount of attention commanded by the engagement ring but it should reflect your lady’s style and personality. There are many times when a woman may choose to wear just her wedding band by itself so this is a piece of jewelry that needs to do double duty. The wedding band should look fabulous when it is paired with the engagement ring and it should shine when called upon to go solo.

Back to Basics

Classic and refined, your future wife is all about refinement and elegance. She enjoys the simple quiet beauty of life and her style reflects her grace without ever being showy. The back to basics bride will definitely appreciate the time and attention to detail that goes into choosing the right wedding band. She is likely to wear just her wedding band while sailing or riding horses on the weekends.

The Modern Mrs. likes interesting new places and she is always ready to try the newest cuisine (even sugar coated tofu rolls) at the drop of the hat. The wedding band for your lady needs to stand out and make a statement. Above all, the modern wedding band should be fun and interesting, sweet and sexy.
