A Word of Advice
Ask your fiance what she prefers. Girls may want a unique design from her preferred jewelry brand, and sometimes the specifications don’t really matter, even though you think you found the best value for money stone. haha
Favoured for its natural silvery-white sheen and hypoallergenic properties, platinum rings are the perfect symbol of an enduring and lasting love. As the world’s densest material, it is stronger and more durable than gold, and provides timeless comfort especially for men who may not be used to wearing jewellery.
The beautiful tinge of pink in rose gold jewellery is achieved by combining gold with metal alloys. The more alloy content, the deeper the rosy tones will be. Rose gold rings are a romantic style that suits many different skin tones.
White gold rings consist of pure gold mixed with other metal alloys, and are often rhodium plated. This provides a dazzling appearance to the ring, and sets off a brilliant sparkle to the ring.
(means “unbreakable” in Ancient Greek) is one of the most sought-after gemstones. The hardness of diamond and its high dispersion of light—giving the diamond its characteristic “fire”—make it desirable as jewelry. Combined with brilliant marketing strategies and slogan “A Diamond is Forever” by De Beers, diamond has since become an unbreakable symbol of love.

The brand that will sweep your fiance off her feet and at the same time burn a hole in your pocket. It’s high-end and very pricey! Tiffany and Co. is a renowned jeweler with tip top workmanship. If you find hard enough you may stumble upon your gem at a high but reasonable price. For example an engagement ring with 0.2c, GVVS1 is selling at about RM12k.

Lazare Kaplan became the first commercial-scale operation in 1903 to cut its diamonds to ideal proportions thanks to his mathematician cousin Marcel Tolkowsky, who came out with the mathematical formula for diamonds cut to “ideal” proportions, a formula designed to optimise the brilliance, fire and sparkle in a polished diamond. DeGem offers a range of Lazare diamond which is not only beautiful but also share a rich tradition in the diamond world.
Half-carat Lazare solitaire costs around RM7.5K. DeGem promises that they will buy back the gem at the selling price if you bring it back in the future with the certificate intact (probably for certain products). The unique and fashionable looking ring designs are the reasons for its success in attracting the younger crowd. However you may have to be extra careful as the rings are said to get dented easier.

Among all shops, we have chosen Diamond & Platinum at 1 Utama. We love the unity series of wedding band, mix between Platinum and Rose Gold. The salesgirl was very helpful and explained a lot the differences between White Gold, Rose Gold and Platinum.
Lazare-cut diamond, is claimed to be the world’s most ideal. Somewhere around the era of World War 2, Mr. Lazare Kaplan had a mathematician cousin, who claims that if a diamond is cut to follow such-and-such calculations, the result would bring out the brightest and most beautiful reflections of light the diamond could ever produce. Eventually me and my wife settled for a half-carat Lazare solitaire, which costs seven-and-a-half Ks. It’s small enough not to attract attention, and DeGem has promised us that anytime in the future, if we bring back the stone with all its certificates intact, they’ll buy back the gem for the selling price. Radical designs dominate DeGem’s main offerings – this isn’t the best dealer to go to if you’re going for traditional. Its use of different-colored gold, especially rose and white gold which are the ‘in’ metals at present
Habib – Affordable yet boring designs.
