Buying Pearl Jewelries of Pure Oceanic Love

Pearls signify class and wealth, and easily encapsulate the energy and purity of the oceans. Each piece of pearl jewelry from MySolitaire is special and will be cherished forever. From the depths of the ocean, pearls are organic but they are also, formed and born from within their mother: Pearl oyster. Moreover, pearls are the official birthstone for June and Zodiac gemstone for Gemini and Cancer.

Types of pearls stated by American Gem Society

  • Natural Pearls

Natural pearls are extremely rare and most have already been harvested. They occur in the wild without any human assistance.

  • Cultured Pearls

Cultured pearls are grown in pearl farms. The mollusks are raised until they are old enough to accept the mother-of-pearl bead nucleus. Through a delicate surgical procedure, the technician implants the bead and then the mollusks are returned to the water and cared for while the pearl forms.

  • Saltwater Pearls

Saltwater pearls include the akoya cultured pearls grown in Japanese and Chinese waters. They range in size from 2mm (tiny) to 10mm (rare) and are usually white or cream in color and round in shape.

  • Freshwater Pearls

These pearls are grown in freshwater lakes, rivers, and ponds. They can also be produced in various shapes and in an array of pastel colors.

  • Imitation Pearls

Imitation pearls are usually a coated glass bead. Most have a high luster, but not the depth of luster seen on high quality cultured pearls.

While buying pearls

An easy way to test the authenticity of pearls is by rubbing it against another pearl. Imitation pearls glide across each other but cultured pearls feel gritty because of the layers of nacre. Many culture pearls undergo treatments to enhance their luster but that doesn’t make them less real.

Professional jewelers like MySolitaire will help the customers understand the true value of pearl jewelries. Trust upon jewelry stores who have a good history of ethical standards, even better who are members of Jewelers of America.

So while buying pearls, look for detailed information that includes but not restricted to product specifications. Pay attention to the quality & weight of the pearls just like going for any other precious stones.

Taking care of your pearls

To preserve your pearls glow:

  1. Never clean pearls with laundry detergents, chlorine bleach, or even an ultrasonic cleaner.
  2. Never store your pearls in any type of plastic bag. Plastic corrupts the surface of the pearl. Use a soft cloth bag instead.
  3. Avoid leaving pearls to direct source of heat.
  4. Pearls are to be kept where it can find little moisture so they don’t dry up.
  5. Use gentle soap to clean, and dry it up preferably in a cotton cloth.

Our hand-picked pearls are the perfect way to show your love!

Why Three Stone Rings Make Exceptional Engagement Rings

On the stroke of midnight, you are gifting your beloved a three stone ring. Imagine how special that moment could be. This is all possible with our exceptional collection of three-stoned rings that you can look up to on this Christmas eve. With this, we present the much anticipated ‘last minute gift ideas’ collection from MySolitaire that celebrates your love with three-stone engagement rings. These brilliant pieces have been expertly handcrafted by our artisans to last a lifetime.

What three stone rings stand for

As a classic promise ring for celebrating treasured occasions, each gemstone symbolizes your past, present and future as a single soul in twin bodies. The scriptures say that the center stone represents the present and is also the biggest of the three stones. The smaller stones that surround the middle one represent the past and future. Together, they carry the message of friendship, love and fidelity.

The different styles

Typically, there are three different styles of three stone engagement rings to choose from: equally sized, traditional graduation and slightly graduated.

When all the stones are of equal size, they are of the same carat weight whereas the traditional graduation will have a center diamond weight that is equal to the sum of the other two diamonds. Then, the lesser graduating ones are those where the center stone will be slightly bigger than the outer ones.

A great thing about three stone rings are that you can select gemstones instead of diamonds for the surrounding stones and look just as stunning as a ring with three diamonds.

MySolitaire has been serving happy couples since 2004, and will continue to do so with unrivaled standards, to provide the highest possible level of radiance. You can rely on our rings to find the absolute best intricate delicate designs. There are endless combinations of center-stone and side stone options to consider; you can also pave detailing along the band if you prefer to give it a modern touch.

Go Green with Our Rich Emerald Jewelries




Today, in our last minute gift giving guide, we showcase our radiant emerald jewelries which also coincide with our green theme day celebration sale. Our finest quality emerald gemstones have lush, saturated color in the richest green.

A Brief History

Emeralds are revered since ages and it’s so prized that carat for carat, a fine emerald could be 2x-3x times as valuable as a diamond. In the ancient Indian mythology, emerald was thought to be green of growing things.

Since the time of kings and queens of Babylon as early as 4000 BC, it was worshipped by the Incas and mentioned in the Holy Bible. Besides, Greek legend Aristotle had written that owning an emerald enhances one’s aura and vibe.

He also stated “An emerald hung from the neck or worn in a ring will prevent the falling sickness (epilepsy). We, therefore, commend noblemen that it be hanged about the necks of their children that they fall not into this complaint.”

Greater Significance on Health

Emerald is said to remove negativity and bring positive emotional energy. It soothes mind and maintains a sense of harmony and security. This not only helps bring back your life on track but also let you realize your true connection with the universe. It is also believed to bring good fortune as one your one act of kindness raises the entire vibration of the universe. In true sense, emeralds open the doors to perfect love and trust while instilling you with security.

The Importance of the Four C’s

Let’s take a look at each one, in order of importance.

Emerald Color

Color is the most visible factor for emerald. Natural emeralds occur between very light and very dark. The most sought for emerald colors are bluish green to pure green, with vivid color saturation and tone that’s not too dark.

Emerald Clarity

Normally, emeralds bear inclusions that are visible to the unaided eye. Most emeralds are treated with oil, resin, and/or polymers to reduce the appearance of inclusions and surface reaching breaks.

Emerald Cut

An emerald should be cut symmetrically with uniform facets that allow for paramount color and brilliance. The most popular cut is a square or rectangular step cut also called as emerald cut. This cut maximize the beauty of the emerald’s color to create a bright, lively stone.

Emerald Carat

Emerald experts agree that it’s better to buy a smaller emerald with excellent color quality than a larger one with poor color quality. Quality-for-quality, the price of emerald can rise dramatically as the size increases.
Rest assured, you just need to buy your emerald from a site that has high quality images of their stones, like MySolitaire.com. They can be the focal point in a ring, necklace, bracelet, and earrings like these beauties below.

Why Our Black Diamond Rings Make for The Perfect Ring

If you want to make a statement and looking for one-of-a-kind gift for this Christmas, our unique collection of fancy black diamond engagement and wedding rings is for you.

A Small Tale Behind Engagement Rings

Engagement rings have been the ultimate symbol of love for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand to mark where the “vein of love” went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues today.

Our Black Diamond Rings

Available in a variety of our most popular design settings, you can opt for a simple solitaire ring or an eye-catching halo design. Choose from a choice of our preciously sourced metals including platinum, white gold, yellow or rose. Our rings are set with fine-quality diamonds and can be ordered in any precious metal. We carry all-black diamond pieces as well as rings accented with white diamonds.

The most important value factor to consider when shopping for black diamond engagement rings is the quality of the center stone where clarity is the most important aspect of a black diamond’s quality. We at MySolitaire hand-selects only the best quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut for maximum beauty. Our stunning pieces are perfect for the one-of-a-kind beauty in your life.

How to Remove the Ring Safely

When taking off your engagement ring, don’t pull on the gemstone: it doesn’t affect the gem but can stretch the metal that holds it in place over time, making the setting less secure. You can use mild dish soap to clean black diamond rings.

Why Us

In business for over a decade, our selection is truly unmatched. Whether it’s for a flattering moment for that special day, or just a gorgeous gift for the most important person in your life, MySolitaire’s black diamonds take care of it.

Also, any of our designs comes complete with its own independent diamond certification.

As in 1947, Frances Gerety penned the slogan “A Diamond is Forever,” a line so elegant and effective that we are still using it almost 70 years later. It indeed helped underscore the MySolitaire diamond’s significance as an enduring, unbreakable symbol of love.

Revealing Expert Advice On Exquisite Morganite Jewelries

Morganite is a beautiful, soft pink gemstone and an expression of elegance. It’s increasingly becoming popular as a choice of jewelry among both sexes due to its high durability and affordability, especially allowing for its rarity.

A member of the beryl family, morganite shows a range of pink colors due to traces of manganese. It is pastel or pale in color by nature and known for its transparent peach-pink shade though it also occurs as soft pink, violet-pink, or pale salmon. Also, strong color in morganite is rare, and gems usually have to be large to achieve the finest color. Like most beryls, morganite makes an excellent jewelry stone.

How Morganite Distinguishes from Other Gemstones

Here are a few of the gemological properties of morganite to understand:

  • Its durability is rated as excellent.
  • Its hardness is 7.5 – 8.0 on the Mohs hardness scale which is comparable to emerald, topaz, and spinel.
  • Its refractive index is 1.560 – 1.600, and its specific gravity is 2.67 – 2.90.

These characteristics help identify morganite as beryl and distinguish it from other pink gemstones.

Determining The Perfect Color

As you may know, the most important factor in determining the value of a colored gemstone is: Color.

Medium light to medium pink, clean stones with custom cuts are the most valuable. Very light and included stones are on the lower end of the value spectrum. As morganite frequently occurs in larger crystals, the increase in price with size is very even. Surprisingly, smaller morganites, if they show good color, can be more valuable than larger ones.

Morganite is commonly heat treated to remove yellow and orange hues and to achieve a purely pink stone. This type of enhancement has an excellent stability rating, and the stone requires no special treatment once it has been enhanced.

Morganite is a Type2 gemstone, which means they are usually found with few inclusions. The best quality morganite is “clean” and free of visible inclusions of any kind. It exhibits an attractive vitreous lustre when cut and polished. Morganite engagement rings with highest clarity grades are considered more admired and valued.
