Why Diamonds are the Ideal Symbol of Love and Commitment

Diamond Producers Association

Everyone knows that a diamond is the ultimate way to mark an engagement — but there are actually specific reasons why this precious gemstone is the ideal symbol of love — of what is most precious and meaningful in our lives. In the midst of a very important wedding season, we asked fine jewelry expert Tanya Dukes about the key characteristics that explain why diamonds have been chosen to mark engagements since 1477 when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy with the first recorded diamond engagement ring. Here are five reasons diamonds will always be the ideal symbol of commitment:

Choosing an Engagement Ring–see hundreds at Roman Jewelers Event 4/27 – 4/28

An engagement ring is one of the most important purchases a couple will make—and often one of the first when they begin their journey as husband and wife. Roman Jewelers understands this better than anyone and has worked for 30 years to simplify the process by providing education and guidance from our qualified sales team, competitive pricing and financing and the large selection of diamonds and ring settings, you’ll see in Central New Jersey.

April 27th and 28th, Roman Jewelers will also be hosting it’s MILLION DOLLAR DIAMOND EVENT.  Here, you will have the opportunity to view additional merchandise since our store will be partnering with our trusted suppliers to bring in EVEN MORE than what is normal in our showcases. We will have some engagement rings settings starting as low as $1,999—but we will also have larger diamonds—over 2 carats—for those who choose. Special pricing and financing will be available.

Because choosing a diamond requires the most consideration, our staff will gladly walk you through ”the 4 C’s“: cut, color, clarity, and carat weight—if you need a refresher. It’s important to also know that two diamonds graded equally along the 4 C’s are not necessarily equal—the unique properties of a diamond can look very different and are a personal choice. A diamond truly must be seen.

Beyond the 4 C’s, you must consider what shape of diamond you’d like to choose. Rounds are classic, but Ovals are quite popular lately and offer a larger look that compliments some ladies very well. There are also princess, pear, emerald shapes, as well as many others. It is important to choose a diamond shape that not only reflects the style of the wearer, but also complements the ring’s setting and the wearer’s hand.

Beyond the diamond, you must choose a type of precious metal for the setting of the engagement ring. There are many options when it comes to precious metals, and they come in a variety of different colors and prices. The preference of the wearer and price of the precious metal are of importance in this selection. However, one should also consider choosing a metal that matches the skin tone of the wearer. During the Roman Jewelers Event, there will be hundreds of rings to choose from. You’ll find the perfect one.

The type of setting, which is the method by which an engagement ring’s diamond is secured in the ring, is another component to consider when choosing an engagement ring. The most common type of ring setting is a prong setting in which a small, claw-like prongs grip the diamond to hold it in place. Other setting types include bezel, tension, pavé, halo, flush, and many others, each with its own unique look and attributes.

The most important thing to keep in mind when selecting an engagement ring is the woman who will be wearing it, so seeing it and being a part of it’s creation will truly make the selection more meaningful.

From Disney World to Paris, we celebrate with our #RomanJewelersRomantics

rjromanticsy CollageIt has been so fun watching where an engagement ring takes our couples….literally, it’s been around the world. We’ve had the honor for nearly 30 years, to be the first stop in a marriage proposal. And we’ve seen where it goes. We’ve celebrated many baby’s births, anniversaries and birthdays with the couples that we’ve met and it has always been our privilege to be a part of their lives, really, we’ve felt like part of the family.

“It is one of the great honors of being a jeweler and we take our involvement in the proposal very seriously,” said Co-owner of Roman Jewelers, Lucy Zimmerman. She adds, “but lately, seeing all these romantic proposals has added a new layer of excitement.”

Roman Jewelers has been asking bridal customers to post their engagement photos and share them with us. Our hashtag has had a bit of a following and we are hoping it will grow. #RomanJewelersRomantic refers to our couples, their proposals, and we will continue to share more and more. Currently, plans are being made at the end of one year to celebrate them all and thank them for letting us be the first step on a wonderful and romantic adventure. Stay tuned.

A new 5th Ave. sign was just perfectly placed in Bridgewater

Roman Jeweler's is perfectly located at the intersection of 5th Ave and Commons way.
Roman Jeweler’s is perfectly located at the intersection of 5th Ave and Commons way.

Roman Jewelers is located officially at 500 Commons Way, in Bridgewater, but last week a new sign went up on the corner that many customers and employees noticed right away. Serendipity? Roman Jewelers thinks so. Many, many years ago, store owners, Roman and Sophie, created an advertising campaign that let customers know that all the best of 5th Ave., in New York City could be found at Roman Jewelers in Central, NJ. It was true then and still holds true today. With jewelry brands known the world over like Mikimoto, Marco Bicego, Tacori, Hearts on Fire, Lagos, and the latest Fashion Brands like Freida Rothman, there is little need to fight the traffic and cross the river for designer brands found on 5th ave in NYC. Apparently an older, worn and tired sign was on the corner previously, but it was not noticeable. Now, with a new “5th Ave.” sign customers & employees are smiling, and Roman Jewelers would like to personally thank the person or department responsible for this fortunate circumstance…whoever they are. “I think we owe them a personal thank you and tour of the store,” said Lucy Zimmerman who owns the store along with her parents, Roman and Sophie. Until the mystery is solved, however, Roman Jewelers will continue to provide a little bit of 5th Avenue, right here in Bridgewater.
