When it comes to designing your engagement ring, there are a lot of things to consider, and before you go shopping the first thing that you should do is educate yourself in choosing gemstones. There is a wealth of information available for free online, and by taking the time to understand what you are going to be buying, you can ensure that you get the best deal and get as much bling for your bucks as possible. Below is some advice you can follow in choosing the best gemstones for your engagement ring.

Set A Realistic Budget

Before you even look at the design of your rings or the gemstones that you will use in them, you will first have to set yourself a realistic budget so that you know how much money you have available to spend. Once you have decided on how much money to put towards your rings, you can then start to look at the style and design of the ring that you are going to choose.

Look For A Reputable Jeweller

If you are going to have a bespoke ring created, you will want to find a reputable and reliable jeweller who can create your rings for you. There are many jewellers offering this service so you will need to look at all the local companies and get recommendations if you can. When you have found a jeweller, you will also want them to give you a quote for the materials needed for your rings, and before accepting this you should also shop around and see what prices you can find for the metal and gemstones that you are going to use.

Selecting Your Gemstones

Many people will go for the traditional rings that include diamonds, but if you are looking for something a little different, there are many different gemstones that you can choose besides. For something really striking, you could select Burmese rubies for your engagement and wedding ring, or Columbian Emeralds, or Russian Alexandrites.  There is so much choice available that you should not constrain yourself in having to choose diamonds for your rings, and you could also save some money in the process.

Selecting The Metal

You will need to ensure that you select a precious metal that is going to compliment the gemstones that you are going to use in your rings, and there is a lot of choice available, such as:

·       Yellow Gold
·       White Gold
·       Platinum
·       Palladium
·       Silver
·       Titanium

The prices of the different metals can vary quite drastically, and they all have their own properties that make them an appealing choice. It is advisable that you speak to the jeweller that is going to make your ring and ask them for their opinion on the best metals to use for your type of gemstones.

Keep Your Lifestyle In Mind When Designing Your Rings

It is essential that you take into account your lifestyle when having your rings designed, and if you are in a career where you use your hands a lot, you will want to style your rings so that they will not get caught on anything when you are working. A reputable jeweller will also ask you questions about your lifestyle before they attempt to design your ring, and answering them honestly and openly will help them to design the engagement and wedding rings of your dreams.


The above guide should help you pick the best gemstone for your ring.

June 21, 2019 Venoma 0 Comments

Hello my lovelies and welcome to my new post! Summer is coming and that means that we are all in the need for new summer essentials and some trendy items to walk down the beach in. If you love following current fashion trends and if you are looking for latest trendy items such as jumpsuits and rompers for women, then I have a real treat for you today! We will be checking out together a fresh online store that will help you get ready for summer!

The online store we will be browsing today is called Africanmall and it offers a large variety of products. First of all, there you can find a wide range of clothing for all occasions from everyday outfits to elegant garments for more important events. When you enter their website you can go directly to ''new in'' section in case you want to check out all the latest items and trendiest products at the moment. You can also go through their ''recommended'' section to see what is hot right now in the fashion world.

I really enjoy the modern design of two piece dress sets in this online store. I picked out some of my favorite items to share with you today and one of those is this gorgeous two piece set you can see on the photo above. I love the plaid print that never goes out of fashion. Matching this print with popular two piece design makes this look very attractive and modern. It's easy to match with shoes and bags, making it an easy outfit to wear and combine with accessories.

When it comes to accessories, Africanmall also offers a large variety of sunglasses, bags, belts, makeup tools and items, hair accessories and phone cases. Also, you can check out their human hair section where you can get human hair weave, bundle deals that are really good, as well as frontal and closure section. Their wigs selection is also quite amazing, offering both synthetic and human hair wigs.

If you are looking for a bargain or to save a buck, make sure to visit their ''sale'' section. There you can find products that are very affordable, some of them are even under 6.99$. I really love their rompers for women and it seems that there are two dominant trends in this area: neon colors and sporty designs. Some of those I have picked out to show you in this post. Rompers look very sexy and flattering on a women's body. They are ideal for summer and warm weather.

Summer jumpsuits are also one of my favorite summer items. They make a whole outfit by themselves and that's what I love about them. In Africanmall I found some very interesting jumpsuits with different prints on them. Currently, snake print and leopard print are really on point with current trends. Also, jumpsuits are ideal for many occasions and can look really sexy.

Tips For Choosing A Diamond

June 14, 2019 Venoma 0 Comments

Whether you’re looking for the perfect diamond engagement ring or a special diamond for that special someone in your life, the hardest part is choosing the stone. You can always check out diamond shops for perfect opportunities to create your own piece of jewellery and count on the aid of their precious stone experts. Part of the entire process is choosing the right diamond.

Here are our best tips for choosing the right diamond for your budget and purpose.

The Budget

First, pick a budget. This is important as it ensures you stay within a price range you can afford. It’s easy to go overboard, so a budget helps you stay on track.

The Shape

The next step is to decide on a diamond shape. Shape is different to cut. The cut is the facets and angles of the stone and is a way of evaluating a diamond. Popular diamond shapes include cushion, princess and round cuts, but there are plenty of different shapes available.

The Carat

Carat weight will depend mainly on your budget and what you plan on using the diamond for.

Start Searching

Next, start looking for your perfect diamond. Start off with the highest quality stone, which is a colour grade D and clarity internally flawless (IF) or flawless (FL). As for cut, start with the highest option available on the grade. Different wholesalers may use different terms for the cut, such as Signature or Super Ideal. If you have a high budget, you’ll have plenty of options. But if you’re on a tight budget, you’ll need to make some adjustments to your search. There are diamonds in Sydney like Australian Diamond Importers pieces that should fit the quality you want.  

Here’s how to get the best results:

·       Adjust clarity first so you can find a diamond you can afford. Lower the clarity grade before any other factors. A clarity grade as low as VS2 is still clean to the naked eye which means you won’t easily spot any imperfections.

·       Next, lower the colour quality. You can slowly decrease colour quality from D down to G all the way down to H before adjusting other factors. Keep in mind that you should set colourless diamonds on platinum or white gold. It’s hard to spot the colour difference between D and H grades when a diamond is mounted. You can even limit the colour grade to E-F, and it will still look stunning.

·       Cut is a diamond’s most important factor. It determines the stone’s brilliance, so it should be the last thing you adjust.

·       If you’re still struggling to find something, decrease the carat weight by around 10%. So, if you wanted a 1 carat diamond, start looking at 0.90 carats, it can make a big difference to the price range.

If you use the above tips and still don’t find the diamond you want, it’s time to make more adjustments.

More Tips

·       For diamonds between 1-2 carats, drop the clarity grade SI1. Imperfections are still hard to spot with the naked eye. If a diamond is less than a carat, clarity isn’t particularly important, so you can drop to SI2.

·       You can even go as low as I-J in colour for diamonds less than 1 carat. The diamond will look colourless when it’s mounted on white gold or platinum. If you want to set the diamond on yellow gold, you can safely drop down to a colour grade K.

·       Princess and round cuts are the most brilliant because they have a high number of facets. They’re also amazing at reflecting light and hiding yellow hues.

·       If the weight of the carat is your main concern you could buy a shape that creates the illusion of being bigger than it is, such as a marquise cut.

Use these tips to find the perfect diamond!

Review: PixiBeauty Skintreats Collection

June 06, 2019 Venoma 1 Comments



Hello my lovelies and welcome to my new beauty review! I am happy to share with you today my thoughts about new PixiBeauty cosmetics! Today we will talk about Pixi GLOW Glycolic Boost mask, Pixi Peel&Polish Concentrate, Pixi T-Zone Peel-Off Mask, Pixi DetoxifEYE patches and Pixi Glow Mud mask. Here we go!




First I have tried Pixi T-Zone Peel-Off mask. It comes in a green tube package filled with 45 ml of product. It is used for drawing out impurities and peeling off in order to reveal immediate results. It should refresh and refine skin. It is used 1-2 times a week or more if needed. You should apply it to your T-zone and leave it to dry, then peel off and wash off.

I was so surprised to reveal that this mask is super glowy and actually light green. It remind me of all the black masks I used before, but it's less aggressive towards my skin. It does a good job of cleaning the skin and unclogging stubborn pores on my face. It's easy to apply and peel off as well. Also it's super fun to use!





Then I have tried Pixi Peel&Polish Concentrate. It comes in a cute pink tube with 80 ml of products inside. This is actually a peeling concentrate and it's super easy to use. You apply it to your face, leave for 2 minutes and then rinse off. For stronger effect, you can massage the product in your skin for 30 seconds before rinsing off. It can also be used 2-3 times a week or more often.

I really enjoy using this concentrate. It makes my skin way cleaner and softer than when I'm not using it. It replaces a peeling mask I used to use for this purpose. Also the tube is going to last me a while soon as there's a lot of product inside.




Next I tried out Pixi Glow Mud mask that comes in a green tube filled with 45 ml of product. It is made for all skin types and is used for deep-pore-cleansing and skin-energizing. It should be used in the evening. Apply it to the face and let dry for 15 minutes, then rinse off and pat dry. This mask is actually pretty cool. I expected way more mess from a mud mask, but this one is very easy to apply and take off as well. It leaves the skin soft, hydrated and glowy.




Next I have tested out Pixi DetoxifEYE patches for under-eye area. In a cute green packaging you can find 30 patches for under-eye area soaked in hyaluronic acid and caffeine. They smooth and depuff under-eye area, aiding in reduction of dark circles as well. These patches have an adorable scent to them and are very easy to apply. You should leave them on just like a mask to do their thing. My under-eye area was really smooth, hydrated and refreshed after using these.



Last but not least Pixi GLOW Glycolic Boost mask is one of those tissue masks that make every skin care complete. It's a great thing to put on when you have 15 minutes in between other activities to dedicate to yourself and take a break. This mask will leave your skin nourished and hydrated.

I hope you enjoyed this review and found it useful my lovelies. Let me know what do you think about new Pixi products!

Lots of love,
Venoma
