Fit for a Queen!

Pearls have been long treasured by almost every culture and civilization.  Earliest accounts of use of pearls can be dated back to 4200 B.C.  From Rome to China, pearls were considered a symbol of wealth, power, and beauty.

Pearl – Known for its calming properties, the Pearl is said to aid purity, charity, integrity, truth, and loyalty in its wearer. – See more at: http://www.americangemsociety.org/healing-gemstones#sthash.SSDESlrq.dpuf

For the love of Fabergé…

Who says Valentine’s Day is the only day for romance?  The Easter of 1885 also marks the twentieth anniversary of Czar Alexander III and Czarina Maria Fedorovna, and the Czar needed an exceptional gift for his wife.

Starting a tradition of the ‘Imperial’ Fabergé Egg, Peter Carl Fabergé was commissioned by Czar Alexander to create a unique, ornate, and ravishing Easter/Anniversary gift for Czarina Maria Ferdovna. The tradition continued with Czar Nicholas II, and has stamped Fabergé Eggs to be an icon of royalty, luxury, charm and class.

Today the surviving beautifully handcrafted ornate masterpieces, Fabergé eggs would be estimated to be worth around $33 Million Dollars.

You don’t need to spend millions of dollars for an extraordinary Fabergé egg! Make sure this Easter is one to remember, check out this Vermeil White CZ Fabergé Egg inspired pendent, a token of love and an icon of a lux life!

Tips on necklace length

Weather you’re looking for a necklace for yourself or someone else, finding the right necklace can be a hassle. Luckily, there are some basic necklace guidelines. The average necklace ranges from 16-20 inches. This is usually anywhere between the base of the throat and the collarbone.

Choosing the perfect length:

– To find the ideal length for a necklace that will sit just above your collarbone, use a measuring tape to measure your neck and add 2 to 4 inches. This will help ensure a looser, more comfortable fit.

– For children’s necklaces, 14 to 16 inches is standard.

– The jewelry should match the occasion or attire. For women, a longer necklace should be worn with a high neck such as a turtleneck shirt. A shorter chain works well with formal attire such as a dinner dress.

– While all necklace styles can be worn long, the beaded necklace is one of the most popular types for such a length. Long necklaces are good for petite women as the length creates long vertical lines, giving the illusion of added height.

At Ophira Diamonds, we have a range of necklaces in a variety of different lengths. We ensure that our customers are always satisfied and can customize your necklace to any length. Weather you buy it from us or want your existing necklace extended or shortened, visit us at Ophiradiamonds. Call or email us for more information.
