Generations of Love

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Here's a story of a lovely lady....Oh that sounds too much like the "Brady Bunch". I am dating myself here. This beautiful remount is generations of love all wrapped into one. I can't say enough about this wonderful couple. And she was our VIP winner at Christmas! Certainly a "blingy" Holdiay Season! Enjoy and dream!

Three larger diamonds set in white gold prongs very close together. An antique style shank with pavee set diamonds and a milgrain edge add to the detail.

Making the Cut: Choosing the Style of Engagement Ring That Fits Your Personality

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Navigating the world of engagement rings can be confusing, so going into the store as informed as possible about what you (or your future bride!) want in terms of not only the cut, clarity, and color of a diamond, but also the style and story behind it, can make things a lot easier when looking at types of engagement rings. There are countless engagement ring styles out there, so we at Diana Jewelers of Liverpool, NY have broken down the basics to help you make the perfect selection!


If your fiancée prefers something a bit more unique, the oval-shaped Marquise cut, ending in points at the top and bottom of the diamond, is right for her. If she'd like an oval shape with more rounded edges, then the Cushion cut (sometimes called the Pillow Cut) is more ideal.

Anniversary Dream Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

This is a story of the creation of an incredible "Happy Anniversary" ring. This is special because it illustrates what can be done with a client's vision of her perfect ring. She couldn't find it anywhere and when she came to us seemed a bit discouraged; willing to "settle". I wouldn't let that happen. We designed the ring she imagined. So exciting! The combination of yellow and white in a simple twist, frames the 6 original diamonds from her wedding band. And the matching band slips perfectly into the engagement ring. An awesome couple! God Bless you both and many years of happiness to come!

Antique Styled Diamond Halo Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

This lovely lady transformed a ring and a pendant jacket from her Mother into one amazing ring.

These three different ideas merged into this one beauty. Scroll through and see the before images, the computer generated renderings and, of course, the final result! Enjoy!

Family Halo Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Here's a different twist on the popular halo setting. This client had an oval solitaire engagement ring. Her idea was to add her children and grandchildren's stones around her center; almost forming a 'family circle' around her diamond. Luckily the halo had just the right amount of settings so each person had 2 stones. The halo was added to her existing ring and her center diamond reset.

Rose and White Gold Diamond Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

I have been so excited to show you this final recreated piece. And, this lady is truly as lovely as her new ring. She brought in a ring, a pair of channel set diamond earrings and two diamond pendants. Her request was something on the wider side, but also delicate. Together with some "visual aids" we took the journey from a quick sketch and the final computer rendering to the gorgeous result. She simply imagined the possibilities. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Here are her original pieces. You can see her engagement ring, diamond freeform pendant, diamond hoop earrings and a 5 diamond pendant:

Antique Style Diamond and Ruby Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Antique Style Diamond and Ruby Ring Custom77-1-18

A ring that brought tears to this sweet young woman's eyes? Yes, but they were joy filled tears. The center diamond was our client's grandmothers, the rubies and larger diamonds from a channel set band and the small diamonds on the side from a pair of unworn earrings. The result is an antique style ring whose focus is exactly on where it should be; the memories of her Grandmother. bb

Generations of Friendship Custom79-1-90


I wanted to share this touching story with you. Our client's mother and her best friend shared joy and loss throughout their friendship and when it was time to pass on both ladies rings, our client was the recipient. A story of enduring friendship and strength is represented with their stones. Our client added her own engagement ring and the diamond from her husband's grandmother and the result is generations of family and best friends in this one of a kind treasure. Enjoy! bb

Rose and White Gold Diamond Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Hello everyone! What a glorious day. So many commented on enjoying pictures showing possibilities of re-purposing "bling". Here's one of my favorites for two reasons; not only is the final product stunning but the diamonds came from items many have that may be unworn. A simple diamond pendant and stud earrings became this rose and white gold ring. With no prongs to catch, this simple and elegant style could be worn daily. Enjoy!

Grandmother's Diamond Becomes a Stunning Engagement Ring

Grandmothers Diamond Becomes a Stunning Engagement Ring Custom82-1-83


Happy Saturday! When a client comes in for a repurposing of jewelry I explain there are three layers to that onion:
1-A new ring in our stock fits the stone perfectly and a new ring is born!
2-With thousands of pieces already available, we find the perfect piece already made that matches her stone(s) size(s) and set the stones.
3-The client likes a certain style from different pieces but her stones may not match settings that already exist. So, we make it from scratch.

Marquis Diamond Ring

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

After over 32 years of working in our family business and creating "treasures", I still am uplifted when a client sees the final product and feels joy. An incredible lady came in with a solitaire diamond, trillion wrap and tapered marquise diamond anniversary band. With the addition of some small round diamonds, she has a new, breathtaking set. I am forever thankful she allowed me to see this vision through and, of course, thankful for her trust.

Can diamonds chip?

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Can diamonds chip? Yes. Diamonds grow in layers and are cut along grain lines so if hit just right, they can chip. But diamonds can be repaired by an expert diamond cutter. Take a look at the attached before and after pictures. But the best part is the story: This was a gift from mother in law to daughter in law and will be eventually passed on to her granddaughter.

Three before pictures show broken edges along half of the edge and what looks like broken ice down the back.

Another Transformation Treasure Story

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

Here's another transformation treasure story. A lovely lady and her daughter came in to recreate her mother's ruby and diamond ring. An oval center filled with varied sizes of diamonds was set in white gold and was surrounded by two rows of small round rubies. The goal was to make a smaller ring for Mom and create something with the rubies for her daughter. We took the center white gold portion, surrounded it with a yellow gold trim and a support undercarriage. Adapting her original ring allowed the view from the side to be similar to the original ring style. The rubies were used to create a stunning pair of drop pierced earrings. Imagine the sentiment of both ladies wearing their mother and grandmother's stones.

To Repair or to Upgrade?

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool

To Repair or to Upgrade? To Repair or to Upgrade?

This classic set was well loved and after many years needed work on the center head and the diamond band. Repair was an option, but a new head for the diamond was needed as well as much work on the band to secure the diamonds.

Stunning Remount

by Betsy

A client brought in both her wedding ring and engagement ring. As you can see prongs on her engagement ring were very bent. We used all her diamonds and added just four in the halo and the small ones on the side.

A Pendant and a Ring

by Betsy

The wish: To bring a client’s design to life using the diamonds from her first engagement ring and creating the ring and pendant of her dreams.

The added bonus: Alter the original ring setting to accept a smaller center princess cut and adding blue sapphires where the side diamonds were.

The plan:

-Pendant: This lovely lady drew a sketch using a large princess cut as the center and positioning the trapezoid side diamonds to show off the shape of the center. A simple white gold chain, attached with jump rings on the side, completes this simple and elegant design that can be worn every day.

-Ring: Using the original ring mounting, our incredible custom designer adjusted the size of the center head ...

Diamond Cut - The Most Important of the 4C's

by Betsy

Diamond Cut - The Most Important of the 4Cs DiamondCut1-7
A diamond cut is one of the “4Cs” used to determine a diamond's value. A diamond uses specific geometric proportions to shape a diamond before polishing. When a diamond is cut, facets are created. These facets determine the shape and appearance of the diamond. The cut of the diamond greatly determines the diamond's brilliance. When the cut is done poorly, the diamond becomes less luminous. Although a diamond may grade well using other determiners, a poor cut can result in a dull, muted effe...
