Fall 2023 Jewelry Trends

Jewelry trends are constantly changing, and we have the latest updates for the fall of 2023. Rumors were circulating on TikTok earlier this year that necklaces are a thing of the past. Then came the 2023 NYFW runway, with chunky and unique necklaces stealing the show. As we approach the fall, we see the jewelry trends changing. You heard it from us first: necklaces are back and bigger than ever. 

Here are some more jewelry trends to look out for this fall! 


Statement Necklaces

The kind of necklaces on our social media feeds for the past couple of years have been dainty and light; they have been easy to miss. They mostly disappeared when the term personal style picked up speed on our algorithms. Long gone are the days of minimalist chains—if you see someone wearing some, they are likely just branches for clunky charms to hang off. The fall NYFW 2023 runways took this chunky look one step further, with models wearing large necklaces marking the return of statement jewelry. 


Large Earrings 

Earrings can sometimes feel like the most personal accessories. The biggest earring trends for fall 2023 are huge, a movement likely started by the viral Bottega large drop earrings. In addition to these larger statement earrings, hoops will always be in style. Never count out the power of a great pair of hoop earrings. On the fall runways, the circular style was done in thick, chunky gold, sculptural silver, and double or even quadruple stacked. 


Pearls, Pearls, Pearls

Get ready to clutch them because pearls are about to be even more popular than they've been over the past few years. We're talking pearl-encrusted everything and pearls in all the classic places: necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Pearl necklaces are a timeless style with generation-spanning appeal, living in both your grandmother's and your Gen-Z niece's collections. 

Stacked Rings

Get yourself a ring—the bolder, the better. Now, pair it with more bling with the same kind of energy. You're executing one of fall's most maximalist jewelry trends: ring stacking. Seriously, one ring does not rule them all. In this case, the more the merrier. And don't feel the need to stick to just one metal type. Mix and match until you have a situation that feels eclectic but intentional. It's a fine line, but we believe in you!

Engagement Ring Shopping: Tips To Save Money

Engagement Ring Shopping: Tips To Save Money

An engagement ring is an exciting yet scary purchase. You want the ring to be perfect since it will represent your love. We know it's easy to romanticize the process; an engagement ring is a significant expense you want to get right. Whether shopping for rings together or buying them solo, here are some tips for finding the right match. 

Consider Your Shape and Band 

Picking out what diamond shape your significant other would love is scary. Ask them what their dream ring looks like, making it easier for you in the long run. These details include band color, carat count, diamond cut, and more. Every shape has a different price per carat - some cuts are a bit more expensive than others. Research ring cuts and find two styles that suit your significant other, or that you know they would like. Engagement rings are traditionally made from yellow or white gold, silver, or platinum. Rose gold has gained more popularity lately as a more modern option. Consider your lifestyle, aesthetic, and budget for some metals that scratch or wear down easier than others.

Pick Your Carat Size

This is the most pricey part of finding the right engagement ring. Some prefer a large stone, whereas others may want something less noticeable. Your significant other should know the stone size they'd pick, which is an essential factor in ring shopping - believe us, only some people want a huge diamond. Once you find the right size, color, and clarity, this can be easily tweaked to fit within your budget. Save costs by buying a less standard carat size. Diamond prices are also determined by popularity. 

Decide On Your Cut and Clarity

You can save money by purchasing the lowest-color diamond that will remain colorless to the naked eye. This also goes for clarity - opting for the lowest clarity diamond can save you money. However, never sacrifice the quality of the cut of the diamond. The cut is a significant factor in the sparkle of the diamond. If an expensive, rough diamond is cut poorly, it will look worse than a smaller diamond cut perfectly.

Contact Bostonian Jewelers 

We understand this can be a complicated process and a big decision to make. Our team at Bostonian Jewelers is here to help with the process of engagement shopping. Our team of experts can assist you in picking the perfect diamond for your significant other while not breaking the bank. You will fall in love all over again on the big proposal day.

Things to Know About Customizing Jewelry

Things to Know About Customizing Jewelry

Jewelries are one of the top items to spice your look or make a statement. But customized jewelry is on an entirely different level. They scream luxury and allow you to create something exclusive to you. However, things can go awry if you go in blind. To avoid this, there are a few things you need to know about customizing jewelry.

Do Your Research

Customized jewelry might seem fantastic, but things can go south if you need to know what you want. So, the first step is to do your research. You can do this by checking for various options online to see the one that suits your taste.

Set Out A Budget and A Timeline

Custom jewelry is quite pricy. But I'm sure you already knew that. However, it's still possible to underestimate a particular custom design's cost. So, speak with your jeweler as fast as possible to learn the designs that fall within your budget. You'll also need to know how long it'll take to make a particular design, especially if you need it for an occasion.

Adopt A Collaborative Process

Unlike the usual jewelry you get online or at the store, custom jewelry requires more collaboration with your jeweler. You must communicate with the designer to know how long the design will take and ensure they stick to the timeline. 

Know All The Fine Details

The appeal of custom jewelry is in the details. You need to discuss all the fine details with your jeweler so you can know what to expect at the end of the process. If you're customizing the jewelry for someone else, you also need to consider factors like allergic reactions to metals.

Benefits of Customized Jewelry

Besides the beauty that comes with customized jewelry, these works of art are usually preferred for the following reasons:

  • They allow you to create a unique design
  • They serve as fantastic gift ideas
  • They can be used to preserve family heirlooms
  • It is a great way to personalize your jewelry.

Customized jewelry is one of the most luxurious items you can get. Bostonian Jewelers offers various jewelry customization services. Whether you want to preserve a family heirloom or customize a wedding ring, they've got you covered. They also offer many customization options.

Ways You Could Be Putting Your Ring At Risk

Ways You Could Be Putting Your Ring At Risk

Rings are top pieces of jewelry that give your fingers a polished look you didn't even know they needed. In other cases, rings can visually represent something special shared between couples, friends, or family. In this case, you'd want this ring to last as long as possible or even for a lifetime. The only way this can happen is by caring for it.  Keep reading to learn more about this. 


By Swimming

Putting your ring in water all the time is one of the fastest ways to damage your ring. If the ring is non-tarnish, then water might not damage it. However, swimming with the ring still has its risks. The ring could get lost in the pool, and getting it out might be difficult. It becomes even more complicated if the pool is drained without knowing your ring is there. 


As you already know, rings don't mix well with harsh chemicals. Most cleaning agents contain these harsh chemicals that could lead to chemical erosion. They also leave the ring looking cloudy. So, before you start cleaning, always remember to remove your ring. If you're afraid of losing your ring that way, you can always wear gloves to protect your ring.


Working Out

Understandably, you want to wear your ring everywhere, especially if it means something special. However, the gym isn't one of those places. Wearing your ring at the gym exposes it to the risk of wear and tear due to strenuous activity. Instead of wearing your ring at the gym, you could purchase a silicone ring that can survive harsh conditions.

Labor-Intensive Work

It's almost impossible not to use your hands to do labor-intensive work, especially if that's the field you work in. However, you can still protect your ring by wearing gloves or using it as a pendant for your necklace. That way, you don't have to worry about losing it.

Personal Grooming

I'm sure you've heard people emphasize the dangers of bathing with your ring. It's not necessarily the water that damages it but also the chemicals from your soap, shampoo, and creams. Although it may be convenient to keep your ring on at this point, it's best to remove it when doing personal grooming.

Contact Bostonian Jewelers

Rings are beautiful pieces of jewelry that spice up your look and could also mean something special shared between people. So, it's natural to want to keep it for a lifetime. Bostonian Jewelers can help you achieve this. They provide various services to help preserve your ring from wear and tear. They also offer helpful tips for ring preservation.

Restore Heirloom Jewelry

Restore Heirloom Jewelry

Heirloom jewelry is something that’s truly priceless. You can always buy new jewelry, but heirloom pieces are irreplaceable. As jewelry ages, it doesn’t always look as good as it once did. That’s where restoration comes to save the day! Keep reading to learn more about how you can bring new life to your heirloom jewelry with a restoration appointment

How Can You Restore Heirloom Jewelry?

Similar to how no two pieces of heirloom jewelry are alike, the restoration process of every piece is unique. When you bring your jewelry in, the jeweler can offer their opinion on the best restoration route, but don’t be afraid to make your thoughts known too! Ask questions, and don’t agree to restoration until you feel 100% comfortable with the jeweler and their restoration plan.

One way to restore heirloom jewelry is by moving the stone to a new setting. This is a great option if you want to keep the jewelry but it doesn’t match your preferred style. If all your other jewelry is white gold and the heirloom is yellow gold, you’re less likely to wear it. The jeweler can help you find the perfect setting to fit the existing stone, and sometimes, the value of the current setting can even be deducted from the restoration price.

A new setting can also involve changing what type of jewelry it is. If your heirloom is a bracelet, but you don’t wear bracelets, it may be able to be transformed into a necklace, ring, or earrings. 

The simplest way to restore an heirloom is by keeping everything the same but enhancing its beauty. A professional jewelry cleaning can do wonders! If you want to make it feel yours, consider adding a custom engraving with your initials or surname.  

Reasons to Restore Heirloom Jewelry

If you’re still on the fence about restoring your heirloom jewelry, here are some of the most common reasons people get heirloom jewelry restored:

  • The sentimental value of the piece
  • Making it more wearable to match personal style and jewelry preferences.
  • Making heirloom jewelry feel like “yours” through customization.
  • Adding value to the piece.

Contact Bostonian Jewelers

Bringing your heirloom jewelry in for a consultation is the first step of restoration. This will give you time to ask questions and determine what you want the piece to look like when the restoration is complete. Contact Bostonian Jewelers to schedule your heirloom jewelry consultation with one of our expert jewelers. We handle every piece with the utmost care because we know just how special heirlooms can be. From a simple cleaning to a custom setting design, you’ll fall in love with the heirloom all over again when it’s finished.

What You Need to Know About Wedding Bands

What You Need to Know About Wedding Bands

If you’re shopping for wedding bands, congratulations! It’s an exciting time but also one that’s full of questions. Choosing your wedding bands can feel daunting when you remember that it is something you’ll wear every day for the foreseeable future. Knowing the basics of wedding bands before you start shopping is recommended so you know you make a purchase that you’ll be happy with long-term. 

Metals and Finishes

The first choice you’ll have is what type of metal you want for your wedding band. White gold is the most popular, but don’t hesitate to choose something different! Yellow and rose gold are less popular but incredibly beautiful. Try to choose a metal that matches your engagement ring. If you don’t have an engagement ring, select a metal that matches your other jewelry and your personal style. 

Tungsten or platinum are great choices if you have a job requiring you to work with your hands. 

Once you’ve chosen the metal, you can select the finish. A satin or high-polished finish is the most common and creates a timeless look. Some other finishes you can choose from are hammered, stone, brushed, and matte. 


Adding stones to your wedding band is something that’s become more popular in recent years. It will increase the total price tag, but many couples feel it’s worth the investment. The price will change depending on the type of stone you choose, its size, and how it fits with the bang. For instance, if you have a stone from a family heirloom that you want reset into a band, it will be more expensive than setting a stone that was designed for the wedding band setting. 


Traditionally, men choose wider wedding bands than women but don’t feel pressured to choose what’s “normal”. The best way to choose your wedding band width is to try different sizes and see how they look on your hand. When you find a width you love, note it so you don’t forget when it’s time to make a wedding band purchase. 


Personalized wedding bands are one of the best ways to make your wedding band feel like it’s just for you and your partner. This could be a custom engraving of your wedding date, initials, or a short phrase that means a lot to you both. 

Contact Bostonian Jewelers

Take your time as you shop for wedding bands, and don’t make a purchase until you feel confident in your choice. Contact Bostonian Jewelers today to browse our wedding band collection and learn what type of wedding band would be the best fit for you.

What’s the Difference Between White Gold and Platinum?

What’s the Difference Between White Gold and Platinum?

White gold and platinum are two materials that frequently catch our interest when choosing fine jewelry. Both have a captivating charm and a dazzling white tint that harmonizes beautifully with various jewels. But despite their magnificent appearance, they differ fundamentally in their composition, usefulness, and price. Let's discover the mysteries of white gold and platinum in this post so that you can choose the ideal piece of jewelry with knowledge.

Composition Of White Gold

Pure gold mixed with other white metals like silver, nickel, palladium, or zinc creates the magnetic alloy known as "white gold." Its name comes from the gorgeous white appearance of alloying gold with these metals. White gold's gold content is expressed in karats, with 18K and 14K being the most popular. Compared to 18K white gold, which has 75% gold, 14K white gold has 58% gold, making it more durable due to the higher proportion of other metals.

Composition Of Platinum

On the other hand, platinum is a naturally white metal that is prized for its scarcity and purity. Due to its tremendous density and strength, it is highly coveted and is the perfect material for intricate jewelry creations. A usual designation on platinum jewelry is 950Pt or 900Pt, denoting a content of 95% or 90% platinum. Those with sensitive skin will find it a great option because of its innate toughness and hypoallergenic qualities.

Durability and Wear

Jewelry made of white gold is recognized for its durability and strength. However, because it is alloyed, it could occasionally need care to keep its brightness. The rhodium plating used to improve the whiteness of white gold can tarnish over time, necessitating re-plating to bring back its luster. Professional jewelers use this straightforward maintenance procedure to guarantee that your white gold jewelry keeps its magnificent beauty.

Since platinum is inherently white, rhodium plating is not necessary for platinum jewelry. The likelihood of scratches or damage is reduced by its inherent strength and density, which make it very resistant to wear and strain. Unlike white gold, platinum keeps its shine over time and develops a lovely patina that gives the item individuality and charm. However, platinum can be polished to restore its original sheen if desired.

Affordability and Value

One benefit of white gold over platinum is that it is less expensive. White gold typically has a lower price tag because it contains a higher proportion of less costly metals. Because of this, it's an excellent choice for people who want white metal jewelry's elegance and appeal without breaking the bank.

The rarity and purity of platinum contribute to its fantastic price. It is preferred for individuals looking for the highest quality and prestige due to its higher density and opulent appeal. Platinum may need a bigger initial investment, but because of its timeless beauty and durability, it will hold its worth over time.

Contact Bostonian Jewelers

Ultimately, your preferences, financial situation, and desired level of care will determine whether you choose platinum or white gold. While platinum exhibits an unequaled level of purity and endurance, white gold offers an attractive combination of affordability and durability. 

Whichever metal you choose, platinum and white gold are both guaranteed to dazzle with their classic elegance and bring out the best in the jewels they are set with. Therefore, whether you choose the cozy embrace of white gold or the majestic allure of platinum, your decision will make an impression. Contact Bostonian Jewelers to find the best selection of white gold and platinum jewelry.

How to Protect Your Jewelry in the Summer

How to Protect Your Jewelry in the Summer

As summer peaks, it's the perfect opportunity to embrace the great outdoors and bask in the glorious weather. 

Summer brings numerous benefits, from active social life to an uplifted mood, particularly during summer vacations. However, one aspect can suffer during this season: your jewelry.

When spending time outdoors during the summer, it is advisable to wear sunscreen and bug spray for protection. However, these products can leave residue on your jewelry, causing it to lose its shine. 

Removing your jewelry before applying sunscreen or bug spray is recommended to avoid frequent cleaning. This simple precaution can prevent the buildup of irritating substances on your jewelry and keep it looking vibrant.

However, there are some other ways as well that you can apply to protect your jewelry in the summer. This article will summarize all these methods to protect your summer jewelry. 

Tips to Protect Your Jewelry in Summers 

Summer is beautiful weather, but it can damage our jewelry when exposed to the outdoors. There are some tips to protect your jewelry from any damage during summer. These tips are: 

Avoid Wearing it in Pool, Lake, or Beach 

If your family or friends are planning water adventures, it's a perfect idea in summer. But leave your jewelry at home. 

The chlorine in the pool can discolor or damage your precious jewelry. It can also remove the polish of some gemstones, such as diamonds. Furthermore, salty water and sand on the beach can damage your precious jewelry. 

Prevent Sunscreen Buildup 

Wearing sunscreen to protect your skin from sunburn or harmful rays is good. However, sunscreen or even bug spray can cause an irritating buildup on your jewelry. 

This buildup will make your necklace or precious bracelets dim and dull. Make sure to take your jewelry off while applying sunscreen or bug spray. 

Organize While Travelling. 

It is vital to organize your jewelry properly. Place your rings, bracelets, and other precious jewelry separately. Keep them in a bag or airtight box. This will prevent them from getting direct sunlight during summer and prevent them from getting tangled or scratched. 

Contact Bostonian Jewelers for Professional Cleaning 

Summer is a beautiful season, but it can tarnish your jewelry quickly. Therefore, protecting it from direct sunlight and other things that can damage its beauty is essential. 

However, if you already experience buildup or dullness, contact Bostonian Jewelers. Our expert jewelers can professionally clean any jewelry piece and bring them back to life! Give us a call or fill out our contact form today!

How To Upgrade Your Engagement Ring

How To Upgrade Your Engagement Ring

Your engagement ring is one of the most unique rings you can possess throughout your lifetime. The intrinsic value increases as the days pass by and the love grows. However, the engagement ring is not immune to changes in circumstances. But all hope is not lost. You can upgrade your engagement ring to fit the needs of the day. Upgrading comes in different forms depending on budget, preference, and occasion. 

Do you want to make changes to your engagement ring? Here are some upgrade ideas that can help improve the value of your engagement ring. 

Add a bigger diamond

If you use a single diamond ring with a prong holding it, a bigger diamond can be an upgrade. It is possible to upgrade this ring by removing the old one and adding an even bigger ring. That is a way of showing the growth in the love in the relationship. You can also change a gemstone to a better or bigger one. Changing is not exclusive to diamonds. 

Add more diamonds or stones

You can also add more diamonds or stones to your ring if appropriate. A three-stone engagement can upgrade to five stones. Adding a bigger stone or diamond might be challenging without removing the other diamonds. In this instance, it is best to add more to the sides. The best part of this type of upgrade is its continuity. Adding a stone to the ring during different relationship stages can become a tradition. 

Restore the Spark

Depending on the level of use, wear, and tear, your ring can start to lose its lustrous shine. Some ring types can also resist scratch better than others. However, you can upgrade your engagement by recoating the ring with shiny alloys. This step will return the ring's lustrous quality. It will be just as new. You can change the ring to a new parent metal while keeping the diamond or stone on the prongs. Changing the ring to a more expensive and better metal can also be a form of upgrading. 


While the ring size remains the same, love continues to grow among couples. And in some cases, the body grows too and changes in size. The ring starts to feel too loose or too tight. Both instances are uncomfortable. But you don't have to continue in such discomfort. You can resize the ring to a newer and more appropriate size. Resizing does not damage your ring if you employ the services of an expert jeweler. Keep the love alive, and keep the ring on the finger. 

Contact Bostonian Jewelers

Knowing that your ring can receive massive upgrades brings massive delight. It is best to look at the different options and explore the best for you. It is important to upgrade your ring when necessary. But choosing the right jeweler is also essential. You will relish the decision if you contact a trusted jeweler to help with the upgrade. If you want to upgrade your ring, consider contacting Bostonian Jewelers, an expert in such services.

What Metal Should You Choose For Your Engagement Ring?

What Metal Should You Choose For Your Engagement Ring?

The start of Forever has to be a memorable event. This sentiment is why engagements are special. And the engagement ring? The quality of the ring should highlight the special occasion. You can contact a reliable jeweler to buy or build your favorite ring. The best part is that there are different types of metal for engagement rings. It's not just about the diamond or stone at the top; the ring is equally important. Hence you should select a suitable metal. 


A platinum ring is the ultimate choice for engagement, irrespective of gender. It is a metal that feels heavy yet luxurious and classy. The best feature is the metal resistance to scratches. So imagine having a ring that remains the same through years of use. It doesn't scratch, and it never loses its lustrous shine. You need little maintenance practices to keep using this ring. The fantastic quality reflects the price of getting a platinum ring. It is the most expensive on the list. 


Gold is the most popular option on the list. Its shiny, beautiful, and lustrous look contributes to the high demand for gold for various use. On its own, gold is very soft and can quickly press out of shape. This soft property is why this metal mixes with alloys to strengthen its structure. The best part is that the mixture gives you varieties of gold to pick for your engagement ring. 

Here are the types of gold rings available for engagement rings:

Yellow Gold

This gold uses alloy combinations that maintain the color and lustrous nature of gold. The level of mixture determines the purity level of the gold. For example, 18K gold is purer than 9K gold. 

Rose Gold

When you have a rose-golden-colored ring, you have a rare ring for special occasions like engagements. Mixtures of gold, copper, and silver give you a rose gold ring. Rose gold does not have a coating. The copper mixture reddens with time, adding to the vintage design of the ring. 

White Gold

White gold happens when you mix gold with white or silvery alloys. These alloys include palladium or silver. These additions make it look whiter. Note that this doesn't reduce its shiny qualities. The white gold also has an alloy coating to prevent scratches. 


Titanium is becoming a popular option for men's engagement rings. It is stress and scratch resistant. It continues to maintain its lustrous design with little management. Titanium is strong but also lightweight. You won't feel it on your fingers. However, titanium can be considered too strong for rings. Once you cut a shape, it is not easy to reshape. If you are getting one, be careful and accurate with the size.
