The top 5 wedding rings for 2015

February 17th, 2015

Springtime is just around the corner and nothing inspires proposals more than the wedding season. Proposals mean ring purchases, so the hunt begins. Many styles never go out of fashion, but some find a resurgence in popularity at times. We’ve come up with the top 5 wedding rings for 2015 for your convenience.

Diamond Cluster Rings are a perfect choice for someone who is on a strict budget. Clusters or “Pavé” diamonds are a group of smaller diamonds that weigh the same as a single stone, but cost significantly less. You have the option of a much larger ring and good quality, yet smaller diamonds. Cluster settings look fabulous in platinum, gold, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. The sparkle is exquisite and the look is impressive.

Gemstone Rings are a perfect way to stand out from the crowd. Sapphires, Emeralds, and Rubies are all precious stones and make a beautiful alternative to the traditional diamond. Morganite (sometimes referred to ‘pink emerald’) has become very popular as of late. The soft pink stone is a variety of beryl. Morganite is the pink stone of love. It is said to carry energy that can warm the wearer’s soul. Morganite is limited in availability, making it rather expensive. Gemstone rings are definitely one of the top 5 wedding rings for 2015.

 

Fancy Diamond Shape Cuts like cushion, emerald, and Asscher, have become increasingly popular. Cuts that were more popular in the 19th and early 20th century are now in demand. A cushion cut is rising above the princess cut which has been popular for years. The cushion cut has a soft shape with curved sides gives it a timeless feel. The emerald and Asscher cut diamond have a faceted pattern that is quite distinct lending itself to dynamic light and dark planes in the stone. The Asscher cut is similar to an emerald but in a square shape. The cut emphasizes brilliance and clarity. An emerald cut is a rectangle shape with a step cut pattern. The cut creates light and dark planes that are very reflective. Less brilliant than an Asscher or Princess cut but very elegant. With the beauty of a Fancy Diamond Shape we couldn’t help but add it to our top 5 wedding rings of 2015.

Rose Gold Engagement Rings have become the hot new metal for engagements rings this season. The copper hue offers a luxurious warmth set next to a vibrant diamond or rich ruby. To get the rose gold color, pure gold and copper are mixed with a bit of silver to get the perfect rose color. The contrast of diamonds against the rose gold offers stunning results. Rose gold was very popular in Russia in the 19th century and was called Russian Gold at the time. The 21st century has seen a resurgence of rose gold and many couples are choosing it for their engagement and wedding bands.

Halo Engagement Rings have been a favorite for some time, but the popularity doesn’t seem to be losing steam anytime soon. The Halo is yet another contender for the top 5 wedding rings for 2015. Not only does it have a glamorous sparkle, it is the perfect mix of modern and vintage. The halo setting allows for a more economical purchase. Carat weight is maximized by the smaller halo diamonds around the main diamond, giving the illusion of a much bigger ring. The smaller center stone allows for a better quality stone. The halo setting also looks great with any center stone cut. Whether it is Princess, round, oval, your setting will look spectacular.

Online jewellery stores like Laings of Glasgow present and alluring and contemporary collection of wedding rings to choose from. So, what more you want! Select a wedding ring and spellbind your soul mate forever.

Sending Flowers to Men: What You Need To Know

February 2nd, 2015

Flowers are a symbol of love and affection and all humans like to feel loved and cared for regardless of their sex. In recent studies, it has been shown that men love to receive flowers as much as women do. The attention indicated by getting flowers regardless of what the event is will definitely put a smile on that special person’s face. Whether it is your dad, brother, boyfriend, husband or friend, flowers are a great gift idea on several occasions. Valentine’s Day, Father’s day, Congratulations, Get-well-soon, Birthdays and Anniversaries are some of the best occasions to get a man flowers. But is giving a man flowers the same as giving a woman? What do you need to bear in mind when buying flowers for a man?

Sending a quality bouquet

Men differ from women in that they are visual beings and tend to judge the quality of things by what they see. The best flowers to get a man therefore are those with vivid colours like yellow, gold, red and orange. Keep away from purple and pink flowers as much as possible unless the man in question is into these colours. Even if so, mixing in with masculine colours would be ideal in ensuring that the flowers are well received. A good bouquet that would suit any occasion for a man is the red kisses available on Freshflowers.com.au, which come in a manly black pack enclosing a dozen brilliant red roses.

 

Don’t be super girly

A flower arrangement that would please a woman could be met with resistance by a man. When sending a man flowers, settle for exotic or contemporary arrangements. Natural styles are better accepted than fluffy and big designs. Choose flower arrangements that exclude ribbons, bows or any other additional fluff. Simple arrangements are just as beautiful but will appeal more to a man. A phalaenopsis orchid in a glass vessel would be an excellent idea as orchids have strong shapes and the design is simple enough with no fluffy additions that would otherwise deem the arrangement too feminine.

 

Consider a plant

A plant always hits the mark in impressing the recipient, male and female and is perhaps a safe bet for a man. It also lasts a while longer, and can be displayed at work or at home. These make great housewarming gifts too, so opting to have orchids, pines or Poinsettia delivered would certainly be received well by a man. From the boardroom to the home, they won’t look out of place and may be a safer choice for those you’re a little less sure of what flowers to send.

 

What kinds of flowers appeal to men?

Just like women, any type would do but it is best to stick to sturdy flowers that are full of personality to impress. Authuriums, orchids and birds of paradise are great flower choices for any man but that is not to say that other types will not work. The best way to decide is to consult a florist before making any purchase. State clearly that you are looking for flowers for a man and they will surely help you choose the best.

With same day delivery on some options, and flowers for every occasion, you’re sure to be able to find something for the man in your life, whether its your brother, father, best friend or boyfriend, and they’ll be touched you made the effort to send them something special.
