Nuptials - Diamond Engagement Rings and Honeymoons
There are so many wonderful things intertwined with a betrothal, wedding ceremony, reception and a glorious and romantic honeymoon which ideally could be at a beautiful and luxurious hotel like those right at St. Peter Port on Guernsey Island. The first element is the special occasion when, in most instances, the prospective groom makes the formal proposal of marriage to his beloved. Traditionally this is done on one knee in a romantic location and involves accoutrements like roses, champagne and a very small but very significant piece of jewellery. This ring, symbolising the everlasting love being pledged, is almost always set with a solitary diamond and in most cases it is a white stone. The size of the stone or more correctly the weight is signified in carats and this is usually determined by the income of the groom to be.

The colour is another factor and is important more as a matter of personal taste than of tradition. It is becoming more common these days to see pink, blue or yellow stones often surrounded by white diamonds, especially since these colours while exceedingly rare in the past are now more readily available. This is due to the two high tech methodologies which can produce coloured gems. The first is the process by which the stone is subjected to radiation followed by extreme heat which converts less desirable brown and pale yellow diamonds into brightly coloured yet more affordable ones. The second means of producing less expensive coloured gems for
diamond engagement rings is synthetic production which creates the stones in a laboratory using immense pressure and heat in the same way that they are formed in nature. The only difference is that it takes a fraction of the time and the resulting stones cost only one fourth to one fifth of the price of those occurring naturally. This puts the opportunity to have a spectacularly coloured diamond on the finger of those who could never afford it before.

Fortunately staying in a beautiful hotel on Guernsey Island is within almost everyone's reach even though the standard of accommodation and service you will receive is equally extraordinary. Since a honeymoon is such a special occasion, it behoves you to the advantage of the reasonable rates and treat yourself to a luxury suite so appropriate to this moment in a young couple's life together. When you have worked up an appetite you can go down to the restaurant for a delicious meal and drinks although you might also want to order room service. In either case, the beautiful surroundings will enhance your enjoyment of the honeymoon as will each time you look at the lovely ring on your finger. The clarity of the stone is another factor which determines the cost but is not really something that the average person can see at the higher end of the scale. For instance a VVS1 diamond has very, very small flaws which can only seen by an expert with a ten power microscope.
