Gold has been valued as a global currency
Gold has been valued as a global currency from thousands of year, a commodity, an investment and simply an object of beauty. While a sustained price rally, underpinned by the fact that demand consistently outstrips supply, is clearly a positive factor in this resurgence.
This website provides you with the background to these reasons and describes the defining characteristics of the gold market from an investor's point of view. As financial markets developed rapidly during the 1980s and 1990s, gold receded into the background and many investors lost touch with this asset of last resort. There are many reasons why people and institutions around the world are once again investing in gold.
Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval.
The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone. This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
Handmade wedding rings
To engrave each other's initials on the outside or inside of the rings the brides and grooms can also get handmade wedding rings. Handmade rings are very expensive because they are designed as per the desires of an individual. A handmade ring gives a personal touch and becomes a unique, memorable and valuable possession for them.
Not all wedding rings were plain gold during the 19 th century. According to the style of handmade rings the wedding gowns of the bride can also be designed. And this gives the whole wedding affair a thematic touch. When you place an order for the handmade wedding rings you have to consider that once these handmade wedding rings are made it is not possible to give back or even exchange them because they are a personal item. Typically antique wedding rings from the 19 th century and the 20 th century were plain gold bands.
