6 Timeless Push Presents that Sparkle

A push present is a gift that’s given to a new mother to commemorate the birth of a child. Push presents, typically given by the new father, are a way to celebrate a momentous occasion and make your partner feel special and loved. A push present can be any number of gifts, but the most popular choice for push presents is fine jewelry. Fine jewelry is a beautiful and thoughtful gift that the recipient can treasure for a lifetime, so it makes sense that so many people choose to give jewelry for their love’s push gift.

If you’re considering gifting a precious new piece of jewelry, you may be wondering which type of jewelry you should select. We’re here to help! Below, we’re featuring some classic, highly desired fine jewelry pieces that any new mom would adore. Read on to see our list of six timeless push presents that sparkle.

1. Gemstone Stud Earrings

Gemstone stud earrings are classic, gorgeous, and very easy to personalize, making them a wonderful option for a push present. When gifting gemstone earrings, you can choose a gemstone that you think your significant other would love the look of.

A new wedding ring that your partner can add to their wedding stack is a gift she’ll adore wearing day after day.

3. Diamond Stud Earrings

Diamond studs are arguably the most timeless and highly desired type of fine jewelry. So if your significant other doesn’t already own a pair of diamond stud earrings, she’ll be thrilled to receive a pair as her push present.

Diamond studs come in a wide variety of styles. If you’re unsure of which style to choose for your partner, a pair of round cut diamond studs in prong settings is generally a safe bet, since this is the most popular style for diamond studs. If your significant other has a more unique sense of style, you may also want to consider selecting fancy shaped diamonds for her studs, such as oval cut, pear shaped, emerald cut, or marquise cut diamonds.

When selecting a tennis bracelet to gift, you have many styles to choose from. You can opt for a highly traditional style, such as the 3 carat total weight round cut diamond tennis bracelet pictured above. Or, you can go for something more distinctive and unexpected, like a channel set style or a tennis bracelet with graphic motifs.

One in a Million: The One Carat Diamond Price

Did you know that only one in every one million diamonds is a one carat diamond? One carat diamonds are quite rare, and they also have one of the most coveted carat weights. One carat diamonds are a top choice for engagement rings, stud earrings, pendant necklaces, and many other types of jewelry.

As a jeweler that specializes in diamond jewelry, we get a lot of questions about this highly desired carat weight. Mostly commonly, people ask us, “how much does a one carat diamond cost?” This is a simple question that has a bit of a complicated answer. One carat white diamonds can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $12,000– which is a very wide price range. The reason this price range is so strikingly wide is that carat weight is far from the only thing that determines the price of a diamond. Other factors, like diamond quality and diamond shape, also play a major role in a diamond’s price.

If you want to understand what determines the price of a one carat diamond, read on. Below, we’ll go over all the other major factors that change the price of a diamond, like diamond cut, clarity, color, and shape.

One Carat Diamond Price and The 4Cs

The price of a solitaire engagement ring is affected by its center diamond’s carat weight, clarity, cut, and color.

The 4Cs of diamonds are color, cut, clarity, and carat. Out of all of the 4Cs, carat weight does have the largest impact on the price of a diamond. The higher the carat weight, the higher the price tag. However, the rest of the 4Cs also play a huge role in determining a diamond’s price, since they affect a diamond’s quality and beauty.

Apart from carat weight, diamond cut is the quality that has the biggest impact on a diamond’s price. Diamond cut is a measurement of how well a diamond was cut, which affects how well it reflects light. A well cut diamond will capture and reflect light beautifully, while a poorly cut diamond will look dull and dim. Diamond cut grade dramatically affects a diamond’s beauty, so it makes sense that it can also dramatically affect its price.

Both clarity and color grade impact a diamond’s price, but not quite as dramatically as carat weight or cut. Higher clarity and and color grades will, however, always fetch a higher price. In particular, the top grades within these categories tend to fetch a premium price. For example, a completely colorless diamond will be considerably more expensive than a faintly yellow diamond (assuming all their other qualities are the same).

Each of the 4Cs impacts a diamond’s price on its own. Then a diamond’s unique combination of 4C grades will impact its price, as will details like fluorescence, polish, and symmetry. If you’re looking for a one carat diamond on a budget, consider which diamond qualities you could be more flexible on. We generally recommend prioritizing diamond cut, since it has such an enormous impact on a diamond’s beauty, and then being more flexible on diamond clarity and color.

One Carat Diamond Price and Diamond Shape

The round brilliant cut diamond, as seen above in the Reagan Ring, is the most expensive diamond shape.

Diamond shape, the shape a diamond has been cut into, is another diamond quality that has a major impact on diamond price. There are two main factors that can impact the price of a certain diamond shape: the cost of production and market demand.

Round is easily the most expensive diamond shape, since it’s both more expensive to produce and extremely popular. Cutting a round diamond leads to more diamond waste, which means it’s more expensive to manufacture. Then, round is the most popular diamond shape. Over half of all diamonds sold today are round diamonds. Because round diamonds are so in demand, manufacturers and jewelers know they can charge a bit more for them.

When it comes to fancy shaped diamonds, market demand plays the biggest role in their price. All fancy shaped diamonds will cost less than round diamonds with the same qualities, but there’s much price variety within the fancy shaped diamond category. The price of fancy shaped diamonds can vary often as market demand changes. For example, cushion cut diamonds have become a bit more expensive recently, since they’ve become more popular over the last several years.

Final Thoughts

The Black Diamond Elise Ring is a lovely one carat diamond option for those looking for a distinctive engagement ring (and a more affordable price tag!).

There you have it: everything you need to know about the price of a one carat white diamond! If you’re considering selecting a one carat diamond for your engagement ring, browse our selection of pre-set one carat engagement rings.

To close out our post, we have one final tip. If you’re shopping for a one carat engagement ring on a more strict budget, you may want to consider stepping outside of the white diamond category and exploring your other gemstone options. Center stones like black diamonds, moissanite, aquamarine, and morganite are all more affordable than white diamonds– but no less beautiful! If you have any questions about either our white diamond or our gemstone engagement rings, reach out. We’d be happy to assist you.

Lasting Relationships: 9 Simple Ways to Show Your Love

You don’t have to wait for a special occasion, like Valentine’s Day or your anniversary, to show your partner just how much you love them. Every day is a great day to show your partner how much you care for and appreciate them! Regularly taking a bit of time to remind your partner how much they mean to you can help your love deepen even more over time, which will help your relationship stay solid, loving, and exciting.

Wondering how you can share your love every day? Read on to see our list of 9 simple ways to show your love!

1. Hold Hands

Physical touch engages the heart and the mind, helping you and your partner stay connected.

2. Do Their Least Favorite Chore

Taking a bit of time to do a chore before they get to it is a great way to show your partner that you’re there for them and appreciate them.

3. Send a Sweet Email

Whether they’re going about business as usual or are experiencing a particularly busy or stressful day, getting a caring message from you will put a smile on their face and help them sail through their day.

4. Give the Little gifts

Giving gifts can be a great way to show your partner that you love and appreciate them. But not every gift has to be extravagant– small gifts are also a great way to put a smile on your sweetheart’s face. If you’re not sure what to get your partner, here are some ideas: a book you think they’d love, their favorite candy, their favorite snack, a new candle, flowers (or even a single flower), a handwritten love note. Side note: jewelry is always a good idea.

5. Say it In a Post-It

Brighten their day way simple and sweet love note. Surprise them in the morning by placing the note on the bathroom mirror. Not sure what to write? Try jotting down something you love about them or even just writing a simple “I love you.”

6. No Phones Allowed

Spend quality time together with no phones allowed. It’s all too easy to get into the habit of scrolling through your phone while you’re relaxing with your partner. But focused, quality time is so important for maintaining a loving, lasting relationship (and smartphones are the enemy of focused attention). So consider setting aside some time to spend with your partner with no phones, tablets, or technology allowed.

7. Share Even Your Silliest of Thoughts

Share your thoughts daily with each other over your morning coffee, at dinner, or before bed. Sharing your hopes, your passions, and your interests with your partner will help you stay connected long-term, which will help your love grow deeper each day.

8. Be Their Personal Chef for an Evening

Cook or order their favorite meal. This will make your partner feel special any day of the week, but it’s especially thoughtful if you know they’ve had a long or challenging day.

9. Tell Them Why

Tell your partner why you love them, out loud. Whenever you feel moved to, don’t hesitate to let your partner know why you love them! If they just did something you find cute or sweet, or if you’re just feeling the love for no particular reason, share your feelings.

Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her Personality

The key to giving a great Valentine’s Day gift is to think carefully about your sweetheart’s unique personality and tastes. Fine jewelry of any kind is always appreciated, but fine jewelry that perfectly suits her style is something she’ll adore. To help you find the perfect unique Valentine’s Day gift for her personality, below we’re featuring our top unique Valentine’s Day gifts in every style category!

For the Modern Woman

If your sweetheart favors streamlined, yet bold clothes and accessories, a modern-style piece of jewelry is perfect for her. When it comes to modern jewelry, you can either go ultra minimalistic or opt for something a bit more unique. If you’re looking for a more unique and bold piece of modern jewelry, we’d recommend a blue topaz ring, like the beautiful halo set blue topaz cocktail ring pictured above.

For the Classic Woman

If you’re shopping for a woman with a classic sense of style, we have the perfect gift idea for her: a pair of round diamond studs. Round diamond studs are gorgeous, timeless, and incredibly wearable; they’re simply a can’t-go-wrong Valentine’s Day gift if your partner has a traditional sense of style.

For the Hopeless Romantic

If your Valentine is a romantic at heart, embrace the over-the-top romance of the holiday and opt for a heart-shaped ring. One of our current favorite heart-shaped rings is the Alice Ring, pictured above. This charming ring features a romantic rose gold setting, a lovely twisted band, and a glamorous heart-shaped diamond halo.

For the Trendy Woman

If your partner is always on top of the latest fashion trends, go for a trending jewelry style. Our top trending jewelry recommendation for 2020 is an initial pendant necklace. Initial pendants are one of the trendiest accessories of the year. However, they also happen to be quite classic. So, initial pendants are at once trendy and classic, making them a great gift option for someone with an eye for trends. She’ll be able to enjoy wearing her initial necklace now, while it’s a hot trending item, but will also be able to keep it in rotation for years to come.

For the Unique and Bold Woman

Does your Valentine like to stand out? Does she hate blending in with the crowd? If so, go for an ultra unique piece of jewelry, like a pair of black diamond studs. Black diamond studs are elegant and beautiful, yet they’re also inherently striking and bold. A pair of black diamond studs is mysterious, eye-catching, and utterly unique, just like the unique and bold woman.

For the Trend Setter

If your partner likes to experiment with her style, go for something a bit adventurous, like a piece from our Her Collection. Our Her Collection is filled with modern, luxurious designs in a wide array of styles. There, you’ll find gorgeous gemstone and diamond pieces that range from chic and minimalistic to highly detailed and distinctive. Our Her Collection also includes many designs that blend style elements from different categories, such as the earrings pictured above. These earrings are at once modern and romantic, giving them a uniquely beautiful look.
