Strike Up the Band for Summer Weddings!

 Is there anything more promising than a summer wedding?  Love is in the air and summer romances flourish on the dance floor to the beat of a great band. Dresses swirling and men shedding their tuxedo jackets as the evening progresses, indoors or outside, few celebrations capture the pure joy and festivity of a summer reception.

If you are planning a summer wedding, chances are that you’re a social creature who wants to be surrounded by family, loved ones and friends galore on your special day.

You want your guests to be entertained in style, while fixing their eyes firmly on you!  Enjoy the spotlight, you deserve it.  Just like you deserve a wedding band that reflects your individuality and generosity of spirit.

“I Do’s” on the Beach

Have you chosen a beach venue for your nuptials?  Do you just love the informal serenity of sun and sand and waves lapping at the shore.  If your gown simple yet elegant?  Does the menu feature oysters and lobsters?

If you like a little bit of sunshine with your special moments, then you’ll love this Diamond Wedding Band from Verragio.  In 14 karat white and yellow gold with 0.45cts of diamonds, this band delivers a ray of sunshine between each flounce of diamonds.  Its lively and joyous, just like your wedding.  Wear it and remember the feeling always!


City Slickers

Glamour, elegance, air conditioning, nothing beats the view of a city skyline from the floor to ceiling windows of a hotel ballroom.  Dance the night away in the city of your choice. The cocktail hour is amazing.  Your gown is to die for. Your guests are soaking up the sumptuous splendor of a perfectly planned reception with all the bells and whistles. All is lavish and luxurious.

If your engagement ring wasn’t so fabulous, it might be jealous of your new wedding band from George Press.  In vibrant platinum with 7.85cts of stunning emerald cut diamonds, this is a ring for the society pages. Custom made for you by George Press himself, you can alter it to your choosing.  But you know what they say – don’t mess with perfection!


Garden of Eden

Gardens full of roses, hydrangeas and heavenly-scented blooms.  A pergola for the vows perhaps, or an arbor laden with crystals and wisteria.  The ideal backdrop for the pledging of your lifetime troths. Your gown is flowing and romantic. Flowers adorn your hair. Your groom is fresh-faced and eager. Love doesn’t get any better than this.

Afterwards, a large reception tent has been transformed into a bower suitable for two lovebirds and their flock of treasured guests. On your hand is a symbol of your undying love and fidelity. A daisy chain of sparkling diamonds from Christopher Designs. Wrought in 18 karat white gold and 0.57cts of diamonds, it’s whimsical elegance perfectly captures your starry-eyed devotion to each other.  Fairy-tale and tether, an enchanting bond for all time.

Exotic Escapades

Does any phrase generate as much excitement as “Destination Wedding!”  Don’t we all wish we were invited to one? The perfect excuse to take a vacation with loved ones in tow.  Days of celebrations in some enchanting paradise, complete with fruity frozen cocktails and beach lounges.  Count me in!!!

Your reception features island cuisine and limbo contests.  Your dress shows your curves and sets off your newly acquired golden tan.  Tiki torches flare on the edges of the dance floor and everyone is letting loose. You don’t play by the usual rules and neither does your wedding band. Why line your diamonds up in a row when they can dance with abandon along the platinum perimeter of this custom-made George Press cluster wedding band.  As mischievous and fun-loving as you are, this ring will be as unforgettable as your wedding trip!

110-01042Don’t settle for bland and boring on your summer wedding day. Choose a wedding band with a personality that mirrors your own.  One that reminds you of the day you put it on, and the celebration that followed. Remember, “special” isn’t limited to  the engagement ring, “special” isn’t limited at all!


A Diamond a Day-Why April’s Birthstone Rules!

April, you are the envy of all the other birthstones, for your birthstone is the best and the brightest – diamonds!  Sure, others have tried to ascribe additional birthstones to April – sapphire, clear quartz, and opal to be specific, but for most of us, we hear “diamond” and nothing after that.

And who can blame us?  Aren’t diamonds the most popular gemstone?  Aren’t they the hardest and most valuable stones of all? Some ancient cultures believed that diamonds were the tears of the gods.  Today we know that most of them are created under high pressure and temperatures deep in the Earth. Imagine the treasures yet to be found!

Wishing on a Pink Star

Diamonds come in different hues, too.  Ranging from faint to vivid, they can be found in yellow, green, blue, red and pink. The 59.60 carat Pink Star diamond recently broke a world record at auction, when it sold for $71 million in Hong Kong.  The buyer, Chinese retailer Chow Tai Fook promptly renamed the stone “CTF Pink Star.”

Maybe you will never own the CTF Pink Star, but that doesn’t mean you can’t include more diamonds in your day.  April ladies have the perfect excuse, sure, but they don’t have a monopoly! So, let’s look at some of the “daily” diamonds we have right here at George Press.  Diamonds you can wear any day, every day, and every evening too!

Daily Diamonds

This Lady’s Alor Black Cable Bangle Bracelet is a great example of a versatile diamond bracelet. Wrought in black cable and 18 karat white gold, it is effortlessly chic, and definitely cool.  From the Noir collection, it is perfect for wearing with a dress, business casual and your favorite jeans. We could see this being popular with all ages, and it makes an excellent gift for teens and twenty-somethings. There’s no better time to introduce them to diamonds.

This diamond bracelet is just one of the many George Press carries

Never Goa Away

Marco, Marco, you know the way to a woman’s heart.  Marco Bicego’s Goa Collection includes this sparkling 18K Yellow Gold and Diamond Bar Necklace.  Brighten your day, every day, by incorporating this sunny sparkler into your wardrobe.  Perfect for mixing with other necklaces, it also does the job alone.  The intricate chain is just one measure of its artistry.  Beautifully done, beautifully worn, by you, whenever you want! Note to April babies- add to wish list!

One of the many diamond necklaces that George Press has to offer

This Flex Forte Bezel Diamond Dust Bangle reflects everything that is right with jewelry styles today.  Perfect for stacking, or mix with another A-Link bangle, we have several compatible styles.  There is no right or wrong with these bangles, no time of day or required occasion. Just slip them on and go – to the mall, to work, to dinner.  Wherever and whenever you want!

The Right-Hand Ring

Let’s not forget that perennial favorite, the “right-hand” ring.  Not every diamond band has to be a wedding band. Some say it should be worn on the right hand to avoid confusion, but we say wear it however you darn well please.  Whether it’s a gift to yourself or for someone else, diamond bands- wedding or not- are a great way to put more diamonds into your life.

This Christopher Designs Diamond “Wedding” Band works perfectly for both a wedding band and a right-hand ring. In sultry platinum with 3.71cts of blazing diamonds, nobody puts Baby in a corner! (Dirty Dancing reference.)

Also from Christopher Designs, we love this 18K white gold band with 0.57cts of diamonds for a multifunctional diamond band.  Of course, when shopping for a wedding band or a right-hand ring, we have too many styles to put them all here.  Your best bet is to come into the store and try on some of our many gorgeous choices.  It’s much more fun that way!

In conclusion, if April is your birth month, make sure you spoil yourself and add some more diamonds to your day.  And if April isn’t your birth month, add some more diamonds to your day anyway.  Remember, there is no such thing as too many diamonds – and there never will be!
