Moissanite vs. Diamond: What’s the Difference?

Moissanite vs. Diamond: What’s the Difference?

When you’re looking for the perfect engagement or statement ring, nothing beats a diamond…right? Well, there are actually a few diamond alternatives that give the stone a run for its money. In recent years, moissanite has been growing in popularity – and for good reason. Below we’ll get into all the differences between moissanite and diamonds and which one is best for you.

The Differences: What to Look For

When comparing moissanite and diamonds, there are a few elements you should look at to tell  the difference:

Brilliance

You might think that diamonds are the top of brilliant gems, but moissanite out-shines diamonds as it refracts more light. In other words, you get more sparkle with moissanite. 

Clarity

Clarity is one of the top factors to look at when choosing gemstones – the clearer, the better. Moissanite is usually made in a lab, which means you won’t see the naturally occurring inclusions apparent in natural diamonds. Overall, moissanite is a much clearer stone. 

Fire

When you shine a bright light at a diamond, you’ll see rainbow colors flashing. This is called the “fire” of a stone. Compared to diamonds, moissanite has a much more apparent fire, thanks to its incredible clarity and brilliance.

Color

Diamonds can come in all sorts of colors, lightly tinted or intensely hued. Moissanite, however, appears generally colorless with occasional tints of gray, green, or yellow under a strong light.

Weight

Diamonds are slightly heavier than moissanite, by about 15%. That means that a moissanite stone and a diamond of the same size will weigh slightly differently. It’s not noticeable for the most part unless you’re using a jeweler’s scale.

Value

Even though moissanite is much more brilliant and clear, it costs much less than a natural diamond. Part of this is because moissanite is lab-created instead of naturally occurring.

Pros and Cons of Moissanite

When choosing a gemstone for your piece of custom jewelry, you need to consider the pros and cons of each choice to see what suits your needs.

Appearance

The appearance of moissanite can’t be beaten if you want the ultimate in brilliance and clarity. Most people will assume it is a diamond and will be amazed at the incredible sparkle! 

Price

Moissanite has a much lower price tag than either natural or lab-created diamond. That means you can get a much bigger stone for your money – and hardly anyone will be able to tell the difference!

Ethical Sourcing

Moissanite occurs very rarely in nature, so chances are you’ll only see lab-created stones for sale. This eliminates the possibility for unethically sourced gems, so you don’t have to worry about that side of gem sourcing. 

Artificial Look

Sometimes people complain that moissanite is too brilliant. It outshines diamonds by so much that it can appear “fake” or artificial. Since moissanite is largely unknown still, many people might assume you have cubic zirconia if they can tell it isn’t a real diamond. 

It’s Not a Diamond

Like it or not, diamonds have some serious cultural significance, and imposters are looked down upon, even if they look fantastic. If you’re worried that others will see your ring as cheap or less impressive (even if it looks excellent), you might prefer to get a genuine diamond instead.

How to Modernize Your Sentimental Vintage Jewelry Pieces

How to Modernize Your Sentimental Vintage Jewelry Pieces

Fine jewelry has been passed down for generations all over the world. There’s something so special about a piece of jewelry that has been passed down for generations, especially if it’s a family heirloom. Gold, silver, diamonds, rubies, and other materials are constantly in demand and never go out of fashion. However, the pieces that include them might go out of style, especially if they were trendy pieces at the time they were made. Fortunately, updating older pieces is possible and a great way to make your heirlooms wearable again! Here are a few ideas to modernize your sentimental vintage jewelry pieces.

Before You Get Started

Before you start making changes to the pieces, it’s best to take the items to a jeweler or appraiser. They’ll be able to confirm that your ruby earrings or diamond ring really are genuine stone. However, if the piece is sentimental enough, this may not matter that much to you. Still, it’s a good idea to start off knowing the value of your jewelry before you start the process of updating.

Repair and Clean

After you’ve gotten your pieces appraised or inspected, give them a good cleaning. You might be surprised how much this can change the appearance of an older piece, and you might find that you don’t actually need to do that many changes. A simple repair of clasps or chains may be all you need to get the piece wearable again!

Repurpose the Stone

If you do want to change things up for a new style, one easy way is to repurpose the stone in the piece of jewelry. For example, a fine sapphire pendant can be turned into a beautiful statement ring that is more to your taste. A bracelet that’s missing a stone or two can be turned into a pair of delicate earrings. An item with mixed stones that you don’t love together can be separated to create two (or more) entirely different pieces as well.

Update the Metal

Love the stone and style of the piece but not a fan of the metal? Have a jeweler change that gold band in your grandmother’s ring to more modern platinum. An added bonus is that you get to have the ring sized to your finger at the same time!

Add More Elements

A pair of emerald solitaire earrings can be lovely, but if you prefer to make more of a statement, consider combining several pieces together for an entirely new look. Or, have a custom jeweler add elements like more metal or stones to create a whole different design that’s more up-to-date.

As expert jewelers in the Boston area, we have the expertise and necessary tools to bring your vintage jewelry collection into the twenty-first century.

How to Choose the Best Diamond Shape for Your Hand

How to Choose the Best Diamond Shape for Your Hand

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect engagement ring, one of the first things you’ll want to consider is the diamond shape. We’ve all heard of the classics: Princess cut, oval, pear-shaped, square, cushion, marquise… There are so many to choose from, and we understand that it can be overwhelming. When searching for just the right diamond, you’ll want to consider what cut looks best on your hand. You want it to be flattering, of course, because it’s something you’ll wear daily. So, how do you find the best diamond shape for your hand? The size of your hands and fingers will have a lot to do with finding the best shape for you. We have some tips for you to get started below! 

Best Diamond Shapes For Small Hands & Short Fingers

If you have tiny hands and short fingers, your fiancé and his wallet are in luck! Typically, a smaller diamond will look best on smaller hands to stay proportionate and not be too overpowering. Pear or marquise-shaped diamonds are flattering for small hands, as they create the illusion of long, slim fingers. Oval-shaped diamonds are also a good choice, and are currently a very popular diamond shape! Since these diamond shapes have larger surface areas, they’ll also look bigger than diamonds that have the same carat weight. A thin band will best complement your diamond and small fingers. 

Best Diamond Shapes for Wider Fingers 

If you have wider fingers, it means you’ve got extra room for more bling! A little extra width on your fingers makes it easier to easily pull off some bolder, bigger diamonds. Fancy diamonds, such as radiant-cuts or emerald-cuts will look beautiful and even give the illusion of a longer, slimmer hand! Three-stone rings are also a great choice to flatter wider fingers. Medium to wide bands are optimal to stay proportionate with your diamond size and fingers. 

Best Diamond Shapes for Long, Skinny Fingers 

Long, skinny fingers give you endless possibilities for diamond shapes, as typically any cut will work nicely! Oval-cut diamonds, marquis-cut, and pear-cut diamonds will all be flattering on long, skinny fingers. Large, bold designs and thicker bands work well to make your ring look more proportional with your hand!

Tips for Matching Your Wedding Band With Your Engagement Ring

Tips for Matching Your Wedding Band With Your Engagement Ring

Once he’s popped the question and you’ve been staring at the shiny rock on your finger for a few months now, it’s time to start thinking about what wedding band will complement it beautifully. Finding just the right band that matches your ring, without overpowering the diamond, can be a challenge. You likely are in love with your engagement ring, so finding something that is worthy to sit next to it on your finger may seem impossible. We have some tips to help you match your wedding band to your engagement ring. There are a few different factors you’ll want to take into consideration when band shopping, including the cut of your diamond, the precious metal used, and beyond. Keep reading to learn more tips for finding your perfect wedding band! 

Matching the Stone Shapes & Colors

When choosing a wedding band, you’ll want to consider the shape and color of the stones used in your engagement ring. If your engagement ring features round diamonds, it’ll look aesthetically pleasing to match it with a band that has gorgeous round diamonds. If your engagement ring boasts a stunning sapphire blue diamond, finding a band that incorporates sapphire will tie it all together. You can, of course, mix and match if you choose; It’s all up to your preference! 

Coordinating Your Metals

Just like with the stones, there’s no “set in stone” rule for this, but matching or coordinating your metals is a great way to ensure your rings will look stunning together. If you have a gold engagement ring, you can experiment with different shades of gold. For example, if your engagement ring is set in a yellow gold band, a white gold band may still pair beautifully. You’re not limited to choices when it comes to metals, but matching or coordinating is the most popular method. Keep in mind, though, that certain metals wear differently. For example, matching a platinum band with white a solid gold engagement ring might not be a good idea. Platinum wears slower and is more durable than white gold is. So, the two together will wear differently. Plus, platinum is actually whiter than white gold, so eventually, they may look like the same color, but in time, the colors will not look the same

Wedding Bands for Statement Rings

If you have a breathtaking statement ring, you’ll want to try pairing it with a classic timeless band that won’t steal the show. Similarly, two or three stone rings typically pair best with a more simplistic style wedding band. The band should complement the statement ring, without adding too much distraction to take away from the intricate detailing or large diamonds in your engagement ring. 

Should Your Wedding Band Match Your Partners? 

Lastly, the age-old question… Should my wedding band match my partners? This one is completely up to personal preference and what you and your partner both decide on! If you have similar styles, it may add some extra sentiment to have them match. However, if you both want something completely different, that’s completely normal, too! We also have some tips for helping to choose men’s wedding bands here. You should both have a ring that’s comfortable and suits your style, so you’re confident wearing it for years and decades to come! 

Contact Bostonian Jewelers

Just like your engagement ring, your wedding band should be special. If you’re ready to get started looking for a wedding band that beautifully matches your ring, the team at Bostonian Jewelers is here to help! We offer our own line of Bostonian wedding bands for him and her, and also offer custom wedding band designs. We also do custom engravings to add a little more of a personal touch to your band!

What You Should Know About Ring Resizing

What You Should Know About Ring Resizing

If you have a ring that doesn’t fit properly, whether it’s an engagement ring or just a special piece, your best option is to have it professionally resized. If it’s too loose, you risk having it fall off and losing it, or if it’s too small, you may not be able to wear it at all right now without tugging it over your knuckles or being uncomfortable. Ring resizing is offered by most jewelers and will effectively fit your ring to your finger perfectly. We’re here to help answer some commonly asked questions about ring resizing and what you can expect.

Can Any Ring Be Resized?

As long as the ring is made of precious metal, such as gold, silver, or platinum, most rings can be resized. However, if it’s made of wood, quartz, or another non-metal material, it likely cannot be resized. There are a few other specific types of rings, such as full eternity bands with gemstones all the way around. Since there is no bare metal to work with, these rings are not as simple to resize. But in certain situations depending on the size and shape of the gemstones, a size adjustment may be possible.

How Much Does Ring Resizing Cost?

The cost of ring resizing will vary greatly depending on the simplicity or intricacy of the work. There are several factors to take into consideration, from the type of metal, to how many sizes it needs to be altered, to the changes needed to the ring’s design. For example, if gemstones need to be moved or readjusted during the resizing project, this is a more involved process that’ll require more tools and materials. Similarly, yellow gold is relatively easy to resize, while platinum will require special tools and a high melting point, resulting in more work. Due to these different factors, there is no set price list for ring resizing. Bringing your ring in for a consultation to examine the scope of work with a jeweler is the best way to determine a price for your specific resizing needs. At Bostonian Jewelers, we use laser welding technology, so we're able to size and weld metals like platinum without heat distribution, keeping gemstones safe from heat damage 

How Long Does it Take to Have a Ring Resized? 

Typically, at most jewelers, ring resizing can be done in approximately one to two weeks. Just like the cost factors, more intricate projects can take longer, while simpler projects will be quicker. The ring’s thickness, placement of gemstones, and detailing will all play a role in how long the resizing will take to complete. However, Bostonian Jewelers offers same day sizing and alteration services. We require an appointment to be scheduled in advance for this service. 

Sizing Up

If you need to go up in size, this is a more involved process for the jeweler, as they’ll have to stretch the metal or add additional metal to the ring. Stretching the ring is only an option when the ring needs to be about a half size bigger, and usually with as anything more can weaken the ring. Typically, jewelers will opt for a method that includes heating up and cutting the band, and adding more metal to form and bridge and solder the ring back together. This process may sound scary for your precious pieces, but after they’re cleaned and polish, you won’t even know the difference!  Particularly with Bostonian's laser welding process, due to no solder being used during the welding procedure, it leaves a homogenous solder free surface. 

Sizing Down

With ring resizing, jewelers will usually heat up the ring and cut off a small piece of the band. Then, they’ll solder the two ends together to make it a perfect circle again. Making a ring smaller is often an easier process than sizing up.

How to Prepare for a Custom Jewelry Design Consultation

How to Prepare for a Custom Jewelry Design Consultation

Creating a piece of custom jewelry is incredibly special. Whether it be a custom engagement ring, or a gift for an anniversary, birthday, or retirement, a custom piece of jewelry is something that’ll be cherished for a lifetime. Once you’ve made the decision to create a custom piece of jewelry, it’s time to start planning! The custom jewelry design process typically begins with a consultation. This helps the jeweler to understand what the client has in mind, and how they can bring their visions to life. While it’s certainly a time for collaboration, it’s also important that the client comes prepared, to ensure they get the most out of the consultation time and can effectively communicate what they’re looking for. If this is your first time purchasing a custom piece of jewelry, we understand that it can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know the first thing about precious metals or gemstones. We’ve put together this guide to help you better prepare for your design consultation!

Do Some Research 

The first thing you’ll want to do to prepare for your consultation is to do some preliminary research. A quick search on Google will be able to help you start sorting through what you like and what you don’t like. For example, if you’re designing an engagement ring, a good place to start would be with the diamond cut. Research the different cuts and write down the names of any specific ones that catch your eye. You’ll also want to consider the metals, and any detailing you desire. The more specific you can be, the clearer you’ll be able to communicate it to the jeweler, and the consultation will go even more smoothly. 

Collect Visual Inspiration

In your research, you’ll want to collect some inspirational images that you can show the jewelers. This way, if you can’t communicate the exact details using metal or gemstone names, the jeweler can get a feel for your taste and what you want by the images. Google or social media is a great way to find inspiration images. If you’re searching on Instagram, try using different hashtags to find what you’re looking for, such as “#customengagementring” or “#princesscutdiamond.” Again, the more specific you get with your searches, the better the chances you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for. Conversely, if you don’t have an exact image in your head of what you want, this is where the jewelry designers come in! They’ll certainly be able to present ideas and guide you through the process. In this case, you could just bring in a few images that loosely represent the overall look and feel that you like. 

Set a Budget

Before heading in for your appointment, you’ll also want to set a budget for yourself. This will help both you and the designer to narrow down the options available to you and create a piece that you love while being practical. Determining your budget beforehand is especially helpful if more than one person will be attending the consultation, so there’s no confusion or back and forth once you get there. 

Prepare to Collaborate 

As we mentioned above, doing your research beforehand is important, but it’s also a time for collaboration! The jewelers you’ll be meeting with have ample experience creating custom pieces, and will be able to recommend metals or gemstones that may better suit your piece, even if it’s not what you initially had pictured. Come in with an open mind and ready to listen to what the designers have to offer! 

Schedule a Consultation With Bostonian Jewelers

Creating custom jewelry is incredibly exciting. We love being a part of these special milestones in our clients’ lives. If you’re looking to create a custom piece of jewelry, the expert craftsman and designers at Bostonian Jewelers are here to help! Contact us today to set up a consultation and get started!

How to Clean Your Jewelry During the Pandemic

How to Clean Your Jewelry During the Pandemic

It’s hard to believe that the COVID-19 pandemic started nearly a year ago. There have been so many ways in which our lives have changed, and so many things that have become the “new normal.” One thing that has remained a constant throughout this pandemic, and scientists have not wavered on, is the importance of sanitation and washing your hands. It’s one of the simplest steps we can all take to protect ourselves and one another. If you’ve been scrubbing up more than normal and using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, you may be wondering what effect it may be having on your jewelry. Harsh cleaners aren’t always the friendliest to your gemstones, especially softer ones. We have some tips to ensure your jewelry clean and safe, while keeping your hands fully sanitized, too!  

Is Hand Sanitizer Safe for Jewelry?

Generally speaking, yes, hand sanitizer is safe to use while wearing jewelry. Most rings are made with precious metals such as gold or platinum and are sturdy enough to withstand the formula of hand sanitizer. However, it’s important to note that although hand sanitizer is effective in killing germs on your hands, it’s not a disinfectant for jewelry. Even after hand sanitizing, germs can still be left behind on your jewelry. Cleaning your jewelry separately from washing or sanitizing your hands is key. 

Effectively Cleaning Your Jewelry

Since jewelry often has lots of small crevices and intricate detailing, germs can easily stay hidden, especially on rings and bracelets that are coming in contact with many surfaces. Generally, most jewelry can be cleaning used warm water and mild dish soap. It’s recommended to clean your jewelry once every few weeks. Harder gems, such as diamonds, rubies, or sapphires that are set in solid gold or platinum can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol. However, softer stones like opal, pearls, or emeralds cannot withstand this type of cleaning. If you’re looking for an effective and safe cleaning solution for all your pieces, purchasing a jewelry cleaner is your best bet. Our Bostonian Jewelers cleaner comes with a mini brush and tray to clean and shine your pieces, and keep them looking beautiful and germ-free! 

Protecting Jewelry From Chemicals

In addition to washing your hands and sanitizing more frequently, you’ve always likely increased your disinfecting of surfaces using household cleaners. While washing or sanitizing your hands with jewelry on is safe, you may want to consider removing jewelry while you’re doing household cleaning. Chemicals can cause damage to your jewelry, especially chlorine, bleach, and detergents, as they’ll erode the finish and polish of precious gems. The chemicals can also cause the bond of the metals to weaken, and in extreme cases over time, even crack and break the metal. The best way to prevent damage is to simply remove jewelry while cleaning. 


These methods should help to keep your jewelry clean and safe, even during this pandemic! If you’re in need of an effective jewelry cleaner, shop our Bostonian cleaner online today or stop by our store in Downtown Crossing, Boston.

5 Jewelry Trends That We’ll See in 2021

5 Jewelry Trends That We’ll See in 2021

While 2020 may have consisted of mostly sweatpants and hoodies, the fashion industry is ready for a big year in 2021, and this includes gorgeous jewelry! We’re excited to share some of the trends that we’re expecting to see in the new year. From pearls making a big comeback to an emphasis on silver jewelry, eye-catching hoops, and beyond, it’s going to be a great year to invest in a stunning new piece of jewelry. 

Pearls

While younger generations may have once thought pearls were for their grandmothers or royalty, pearls have made quite the comeback! Over the past few years, we’re seen many celebrities and icons sporting pearls. Pearls are thought to be sensual and elegant and have the ability to dress up any outfit, for any occasion. You can wear a single strand of pearls or even layer them for a gorgeous, modern look. 

Unique Pendants 

Pendants are a unique addition that allows you to add some versatility to a plain chain, and even let your jewelry tell a story. We’re not just talking about traditional charms, either. In 2021, it’ll be all about customized pendants that are unique to you. Whether it be a charm that symbolizes strength, healing, or good fortune, or perhaps an engraved name or date that has significance to you; Whatever it may be, an intricate, personalized design is key. 

Chain Jewelry 

Chains are flexible in the sense that they can be bold and flashy, or subtle and delicate. Handmade chains are a trend that you’ll never tire of. Both chain bracelets and necklaces are a great investment, and perhaps even a matching set will be just what you need in 2021!

Eye-Catching Hoops

From big thin hoops that were in style in the disco scene back in the ‘70s,  to the flashier hoops seen in the ‘80s and ‘90s in the modern music scene, hoops have always had a place in fashion. In 2021, hoops will certainly still be in style. From chunky to slim styles, it’ll be all about unique, eye-catching hoops. Hoops with unique designs, gemstones, or diamonds embedded will all be on-trend. 

Silver 

For a while now, society has put an emphasis on gold, and it’s finally time that silver gets some attention! Silver has always been a durable, attractive, and affordable metal to use no matter what piece of jewelry you’re looking for.

Why Pearls Will Always Be in Style

Why Pearls Will Always Be in Style

You may think of pearls as a thing of the past that our grandmothers and royalty wore, but really, pearls are timeless. They’re an elegant and classy accessory that dresses up any look! Whether it’s a gorgeous string of pearls adorning your neck or a dainty pair of stud earrings, you can’t go wrong with pearls. Here are a few reasons why pearls will always be in style! 

Timelessness

Although pearls really never left, they’re definitely making a comeback with younger generations. We’ve certainly seen pearls worn by movie stars like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor back in the day, but in more recent years, we’ve seen celebrities such as Scarlet Johansson, Angelina Jolie, and even our first Madam Vice President, Kamala Harris sporting their pearl accessories. Pearls are a classic and sophisticated look that will complement any outfit. 

Versatility 

One of the best things about pearls is that they’re so versatile. Pearls are sometimes even referred to as “the world’s most colorful gem.” The most common color that we see is white, but they’re also available in a wide range of different colors, including black, chocolate, pink and lavender, and beyond. They also come in different shapes and sizes, so the possibilities are endless. 

Feminine

If you’re trying to showcase your feminine side, a strand or pearls will enhance your personality and exude confidence! Pearls have long been thought to make a woman charming and attractive. 

The Meaning Behind Pearls 

Pearls are often associated with purity and innocence, which is why it’s common to see brides and wedding parties wearing pearls. They’re also known to be lux and elegant, so special occasions are the perfect time to show off your gorgeous pearls. 

Readily Available

Pearls are a great staple piece to have, and if you don’t have any currently in your jewelry box there’s no need to worry. Pearls are also easily accessible. You’ll find them in almost any jewelry store you walk into.
