When Do You Take Pictures of You And Your Diamond Wedding Rings?

There are many small details to think of on the day of your wedding. Of course, you will have your trusted professional vendors to handle most of the little details when it comes to your reception, but the actual wedding and photo session with your diamond wedding rings directly after can seem like a confusing time where you are not quite sure what to expect. If you are anything like me, you will want to know every little detail about what you are supposed to do in the time between your ceremony and reception so you can plan accordingly and have a general outline of events.

The ideal time frame for your wedding photos is an hour and a half. However, most couples do not want to keep their guests waiting for this long in between the ceremony and the commencement of the reception.

If you are a modern couple, you may choose to take your wedding photos before the wedding ceremony. Of course, this means you will have to be ready for your photo shoot at least an hour before the actual ceremony. You will also have to wear your diamond wedding rings before you are actually married. It also means your groom will see you in your dress before you walk down the aisle to get married. This is a deal breaker for some brides.

Some couples follow the time honored tradition of the groom spending the night away from the bride the night before their wedding and his first glimpse of her will be when she walks down the aisle toward him to get hitched! He will only see her for the first time right before they exchange diamond wedding rings. This is totally fine, but eliminates the opportunity to take wedding photos before the ceremony.

A happy medium is to do both! Take as many pictures as you can before the ceremony with your bridesmaids and him with his groomsmen before the ceremony. You can save the pictures of the bride and groom together for immediately after the ceremony. This will keep your guests waiting for a fraction of the time if you took all of the pictures after the ceremony. Having a cocktail hour at your wedding will also allow your guests to be entertained while you are getting great pictures of your wedding rings and bridal party. Try not to stress out too much and make sure you take a minute to ogle your diamond wedding rings! Click here for detail.

Cash For Gold Stores Are Great Resources

If you are thinking about an easy way to make a few extra dollars for your upcoming vacation, or even for an unexpected bill, you may be interested to know there is a way you can accomplish this without going through too much trouble. Cash for gold stores are popping up like weeds and are more than happy to give you the opportunity to sell gold jewelry and give you cash money in the spot. You will be pleased to know these stores are not only conveniently located in your hometown, they also provide many other services you may find useful.

Some cash for gold stores are actually jewelry stores that have recently provided this service for their customers. These stores are sometimes large jewelry chains or small, privately owned companies. No matter which category they fall under, you can trust the company because they have been around for quite some time. Large jewelry chains may be able to provide you with a better display of jewelry and may be able to offer you a little more cash for gold you are trying to sell. However, a small time jewelry company's may come with more personal guarantees and more word of mouth approval.

Large jewelry chains may even offer you other options when it comes time to get rid of your gold jewelry. They may allow you to trade in your gold for another piece of jewelry. This would be a great way to chip off some of the price if you are looking at a big ticket item like an engagement ring or other such diamond jewelry. Since they have the resources of being such a large company, they may also purchase other stones and metals from you like silver and diamonds. You may end up having enough for any piece of jewelry when you combine all of your resources. You never know until you try!

Why You Should Choose Custom Design Jewelry?

custom jewelry design
If you are considering creating your very own piece if custom design jewelry, allow me to give you just a couple of warnings before doing so.

I have personal experience with this topic and there are not any downsides to this option. However, you need to have patience and you also need to be aware you will pay more than the cost of your average piece of jewelry straight out of the display case.

When I say you need to be patient, I mean you need to be willing to wait for your piece of jewelry to be created. Since custom pieces are handmade jewelry, you have to be patient enough for someone to actually fabricate this lovely work of art. It does not just happen overnight. However, your jeweler should go over how long it is going to take before you start shelling out cash.

Custom design jewelry is no different than anything else you have custom made. Someone is making something for you specifically and custom designing it to fit your liking. This means it will be a little more expensive than your typical display case jewelry. This is a very small price to pay to know you have a quality, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
