Latest Trends and Cuts
The lyrics from Carol Channing’s song, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend“, is perfect illustration of how Diamonds never go out of fashion. Nazuk says that Diamond jewelry is evergreen and is something that is always trendy. Elaborating on the current style of diamond jewelry, that many fancy shapes and cuts of diamonds, like Marquise (leaf shaped) and pear/tear drops are very much in.

The different cuts combined with colored diamonds is an upcoming trend. There are many to choose from: blue, yellow – which tend to be most common, and pink/purple – which tend to be very expensive. Colored diamonds can be natural, which are very expensive, and treated, which are more economical. Colored diamonds will definitely add an extra oomph to your piece of jewelry!

Then there are also colored sapphires, which are available in almost all the colors ranging from blue, orange, yellow, pink etc. Colored sapphires are cheaper than colored diamonds. Another option can be tourmaline, which are semi precious stones, and are an economical option. They are much more cheaper compared to colored diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. These definitely add a great style and color to your diamond jewelry.


Another way to make your jewelry stylish is to use carved emeralds, coral and turquoise along with diamonds. That flower shaped coral or turquoise or cabochon cut colored stones with diamonds (stone that is shaped and polished as opposed to faceted) look exquisite!

For weddings, traditional jewelry, especially polki (uncut diamond) looks gorgeous! Polki jewelry is from Mughal Era and is very much in fashion. Many variations of polki are available. One such variation is polki combined with diamonds. It gives a very full look when worn on your wedding day. These days bigger size polki with designs around it is the latest trend. Matha Patti or Maang teeka with Jhoomar with a nice nath, haath phool, amulet, necklace and earrings/jhumkas make a beautiful set and looks absolutely stunning. Big polki rings worn on the thumb also look really nice. Polki jewelry can also be worn for Mehendi.

Check out the gorgeous polki sets that Aishwarya wore for Jodha Akbar:

If you are on a budget, then imitation polki and diamond jewelry is also available, which looks very nice too.
How to select an Engagement Ring

The approach to select the engagement ring should be practical. Nazuk advises, “You don’t want it to go out of fashion!” something that is going to be worn on a daily basis throughout your life, should be comfortable and elegant. Nazuk asserts, “It is advisable to buy a quality stone and certified pieces as they are a good investment.”
So how do you select a quality and certified diamond?
Diamond certification provided by HRD, GIA, and IGI labs is recognized throughout. Do not get a jeweler’s inhouse certification (as they don’t hold any value) and insist on getting it by one of the labs listed.
Selecting a quality stone requires research. It is important to know the 4 C’s of diamond:


Cut: Cut refers to the shape and proportions of diamond. The cutting of diamond and the finish determines it’s brilliance and fire. The more number of facets a diamond has, more will be the brilliance it is going to have. Round cut is evergreen and has the maximum brilliance and fire, and hence, it is also the most expensive cut. Other well known cuts are: Oval, Princess, Heartshaped, Emerald or Step Cut, Asher Cut, Radiant Cut and Lily Cut.


Clarity: Clarity refers to how free the stone is from inclusions or dark/black specks. On one end of the scale is flawless and on the lower end is included, where flawless is most expensive, and included is least expensive.

Color: Colors range from the letters D to Z, where D is colorless and most valuable.

Carat: 1 carat is equal to 100 equal parts or points. It weighs 200 metric grams. The price of diamond goes up exponentially with the carat weight. What that means is that the price of a 2 carat ring will not be double the cost of a 1 carat ring, but will be much more.

Alka and Gursewak's Wedding and Reception

"BAARAT, BRIDAL, SHAADI, BIDAAI AND GIDHA"
It was an early morning wakey for us this day. We reached at the groom's place at about 0700 on one of the colder winter mornings to cover all the pre-wedding rituals. Everyone was set for the ritual and the house was being decorated with colourful patterns on the floor.








The female members of the family then started preparing for the PITHI ritual where turmeric along with other herbs is applied to the groom-to-be's hands and face. They sang traditional wedding songs which were very interesting. Once all the rituals were complete, we left for the wedding ceremony at the Glenwood/Parklea GURUDWARA. 













On reaching the place, the bride was almost ready and was waiting in one of the rooms in the gurudwara. We had some great bridal shots during this time. The bride looked absolutely stunning and was a natural p…
