Fine Jewelry is a welcome addition to any woman's collection. Pearls, gemstones, diamond studs and pendants compliment any occasion and add a touch of class. Although personal taste and style dictates what type of fine jewelry fits what type of situation, there are certain things you should consider.
Pearls are naturally created by a marine-based organism called a mollusk (otherwise known as an oyster). Natural pearls are extremely rare and hard to find. This is why many of the pearls that are available to consumers today are cultured pearls. In order to produce a cultured pearl one must introduce a grain of sand or a bead within an oyster or a mussel.
If you are looking for the perfect diamond studs to give to that special someone on your list for this new year, consider a fabulous pair of diamond stud earrings. Fine diamond jewelry has long been considered one of the most perfect gifts, and stud earrings are the classic fine jewelry gift.
A pendant (from Old French) is a hanging object, generally attached to a necklace or an earring. In modern French this is the gerund form of "hanging" (also meaning "during"). A classic necklace that might otherwise appear shapeless is suddenly livened up by a circle pendant or heart pendant.
