Memoire Diamond Bouquets Four Prong Diamond Ring

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:00:00 AM in Memoire (23)

Memoire began designing and marketing jewelry in the United States in 1986 when the French company Orest expanded. J. Douglas McDowell is the CEO of Memoire who is dedicated to raising the quality of diamond jewelry in the United States to a new level.

Memoire offers unique extruded mountings in eighteen karat gold or platinum. Platinum is an extremely pure metal. It is also hypo-allergenic for sensitive hands, and extremely strong. The engagement ring should be beautiful, but it must also hold up to daily wear and tear. A quality setting in an engagement ring is almost as important as the stone and Memoire knows that.

The four-prong diamond bouquets ring is a lovely example of the beautiful and ageless designs offered by Memoire. The total diamond weight is 1.2 ct. but the invisible setting of the diamonds creates the look of 3.5 ct. The outstanding craftsmanship of Memoire is showcased in this dazzling ring. Their rings are known for the purity of the metals and gems as well as the strength of the ring. An engagement ring is meant to be worn daily for years so it must be strong and stay brilliant for a lifetime.

The Memoire Moment

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:00:00 AM in Memoire (23)

When a man offers a Mémoire as an engagement ring, it is a hint to the woman that he is committed for life. A Mémoire makes the moment more special with its fine line of diamond rings and elegant perfection. The second he opens the box to reveal the Mémoire inside, instantly, the dazzling light that comes from the diamond engages the woman's eyes. She cannot be faulted for temporarily forgetting the kneeling man in front of her and, instead, her mind is transfixed in that luxurious piece in the box. It is exactly the man's plan that by giving a Mémoire, he knows that she will be impressed. Each Mémoire ring is set in the signature mounting perfected by master craftsmen in Switzerland and parts of Europe.

How to choose the engagement ring

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:31:46 PM in Memoire (23)

Eager to buy the engagement ring? Before you head off to a shop where salespeople will try to ensnare you to buy the most expensive item that you can afford, keep in mind these tips. Buy the style that your girlfriend prefers. Observe the type of jewelry she wears every day. Does she like silver over gold? Is she a fan of gemstones or diamonds? If yes, she may like a single stone more than an elaborate design. Get her a remarkable diamond solitaire in platinum ring like a Mémoire. But if she leans more on gold, by all means make the ring gold, either yellow or rose. For added insight, bring along a woman friend or maybe your sister or hers. She should be able to balance your choice since men tend to see jewelry in monetary terms, while women admire them for what they truly are, works of art.

Engaging question

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:51:54 PM in Memoire (23)

There’s a nagging question about engagement rings: how much should it be? It’s convenient to give the answer: how much can you afford? But it should not be. There’s more to engagement rings than price. What makes it special is the manner the man acquires them. For instance, a man with a median income saving up his paychecks to buy a Mémoire, which is quite luxurious, is tenfold more special than a billionaire asking his aide to buy a Mémoire for him on the spot. Engagement rings are just a symbol of your partner’s love and commitment, and the difficulty (or lack of it) in buying the ring reflects these traits. As for the billionaire, he’d better off looking for a custom made ring that incorporates his design suggestions to impress his loved one. Mémoire is available at Schwarzschild's in Alverser Drive.

Diamonds are not rare

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:06:49 PM in Memoire (23)

Do you know that diamonds are not really rare? Or at least not that rare as you might think.  Many diamond mines control an inventory of raw diamonds to check the market flow for price highs and lows. Coupled with ingenious and persistent advertising, diamonds became the top status symbol that cuts across cultures and ages. However, diamonds can still be rare in the way they’re crafted. Although raw diamonds are probably just as plentiful as other gemstones, it’s the jeweler’s art that transforms diamonds into truly precious items. A Mémoire, for instance, is one of the most renowned diamond signatures for its prong manufacture. The diamonds are held high using a solid base that can withstand shock. The higher-placed setting allows more light into the diamond, creating more brilliance and scintillation. Only then diamonds become truly rare.

True love is for “toujours”

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:14:46 AM in Memoire (23)

Imagine that you’re somewhere in France, in a homey café, and you overheard a couple in a nearby table say “pour toujours” (for always) to each other in a romantic tone, they’re definitely expressing their deep love for each other. Typically meaning “always” in English, “toujours” is a French word that may also mean other similar things or expressions like "all along," "ever more," and "forever". Within the same perpetual spirit that Mémoire created its exclusive Toujours Collection — a line of elegant jewelry designed to express infinite love and absolute devotion. Just like these charming Mémoire 18 ct. white gold heart earrings on wires that feature some lovely tri-spaced diamonds. A definite token of love…to be cherished for always.

What’s most important is usually unseen

Posted by Schwarzschild at 9:25:23 AM in Memoire (23)

“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye,” so says The Little Prince in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s literary masterpiece. Probably in the same spirit that jewelry industry giant Mémoire designed its captivating Diamond Bouquets™ Collection—which uses a cutting edge invisible setting method that needs no inside prong work. The bouquets are the nine diamonds that surround a center diamond to generate an image that is thrice bigger than the real carat weight. The “invisible” look is achieved by the innovatively engineered sizes and angles of every diamond bouquet, which allow the smaller diamonds to replicate the sparkle of a single brilliant cut diamond. The final effect: each bouquet radiating with more than 500 facets.

Perfect mounting

Posted by Schwarzschild at 7:13:48 AM in Memoire (23)

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) lays down the standards that govern the most beautiful diamond jewelry. The GIA benchmarks include the diamond’s brightness, fire, finishing, scintillation and symmetry, among others. Beyond this precision cut grading system, non-experts like us can simply gauge a diamond piece by its brand. Choose a Mémoire and you know you’re getting the brand renowned for its Petite Prong mounting signature considered by many as the finest in the industry. It’s sturdy as it is elegant, the result of two advanced processing that the company has perfected for 20 years now in France: hot extrusion and laser cutting. When you have a stone as precious as a rare diamond, Mémoire craftsmanship provides the safest and strongest mounting.

Why choose Mémoire diamond ring?

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:41:08 PM in Memoire (23)

Mémoire has two simple premises why its line of diamond rings are best-in-value choice. Its diamonds are from quality sources and it uses the finest techniques in diamond mounting. The luxury signature said all its diamonds are micrograded under the strict supervision of a GIA Graduate Gemologist before the stone is set. GIA or Gemological Institute of America is the premier organization that grades precious and semiprecious stones in the jewelry business to assure consumer welfare. The diamonds are consistently selected based on shape, size, color, and combinations that have passed GIA benchmarks. Likewise, Mémoire is noted for its two-prong style mounts. The patented Petite Prong mountings use hot extrusion process and laser cutting to achieve a sturdy yet elegant finish. Furthermore, the two-prong style allows the greatest amount of light to enter the diamond and create a sparkling, scintillating show.

More Creative Ways to Pop the Question

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:29:05 PM in Memoire (23)

With so many ways to pop the question, what are the best ways to tell her you want to get married? We culled more ideas in the hope to inspire the romantic in you. If you work in one company, get your staff or co-workers work out a production number and surprise her. Send her an email with a link to a web page that simply says, “Will you marry me?” in black and white. Write “urgent” on the subject line. If you’re taking a plane together any time soon, ask the stewardess if the captain will allow you to propose via the plane’s loudspeaker. Do it during those long boring hours when the plane is in mid-flight. Organize a party for friends and invite her. Make your friends wear a tee bearing one letter each from the question. She won’t get it at first, but watch her surprise as your friends start to line up in front of her to complete the proposal pitch. Any way you do it, your proposal is sure to be memorable. Top it up with a Memoire engagement ring and you’ll surely get a yes.

Wedding Ideas for This Fall

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:06:43 PM in Memoire (23)

So you’re getting married this fall? Don’t forget these simple ideas from Memoire wedding jewelry. It’s getting cold so give your bridesmaids pashmina to keep them warm during the outdoor shoot. Go for warm hues like chocolate brown to exude warmth in this cold season. Go for something different like use pumpkins to carry the flowers instead of baskets for the flower girls. Add some rustic feel to your bouquet with garden roses and fiddle fern or combine bright flowers for bouquet to reflect the season’s exploding colors. Create autumn tones in the ceremony décor by using birch, hydrangeas and bittersweet berries. Consider open-roof venues to enjoy the night stars without freezing your guests. Also check for availability of space heaters. And of course go for outdoors. The seasonal colors are naturally set for you. Let this fall wedding be as memorable as you exchange vows and the classic, timeless elegance of Memoire wedding rings.

Beauty and purity in one

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:21:40 PM in Memoire (23)

For centuries, women have been put in pedestals, not simply for their beauty but for their reputation as creatures of purity.

Today, this tradition lives on, in almost every culture all over the world, a development that reflects the importance of purity for women who are about to tie the knot. Noted jeweler Memoire's Purity Collection celebrates the woman of today. This series of bands come in platinum and are adorned with finely cut diamonds.

Making memories

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:35:12 PM in Memoire (23)

Memories are what makes life's journey a pleasant one to take. For many, memories, be they good or bad, make one stronger and ready for the challenges that lie ahead. They also provide comfort, when things get rough for they enable us to remember the good things that made our lives a bit more bearable. Memories also never fail to put smiles on our faces, reminding our hearts and minds that everything will eventually fall into its rightful place. To undermine memories as but a minor part of our humanity would be as erroneous as it is absurd. People in love treasure memories, for they bring hope of far better things to come. To celebrate life's memories, master jewelry designer Mémoire has created the Memory Fit Diamond Eternity Band. Crafted of white gold and a row of round brilliant cut diamonds, this piece showcases the designer's Memory Fit technology that allows the ring’s size to increase by as much as a full finger.

Setting it right

Posted by Schwarzschild at 6:00:00 AM in Memoire (23)

The art of stonesetting has been around since the dawn of jewelry making. It is the process of mounting gemstones into jewelry. The most ancient type of stonesetting method is bezel setting. It basically involves the use of a strip of metal to hold the stone, which is soldered to the jewelry. Prong setting, on the other hand, is the most commonly used stonesetting method. In this technique, metal wires are used to hold the stone. Innovations in the stonesetting process continue to be developed, with capable designers seeking to further improve the craft. Memoire’s Memory Fit Diamond Eternity Band is the product of such innovation. The piece is mounted using hot extrusion, producing more durable and solid bands. It features a row of round brilliant cut diamonds set in 18K white gold. This work of art will surely bring joy to women who appreciate both art and luxury.
Come see it at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.
