232-carat diamond found in South Africa

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 11:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

Beautiful diamond jewelry like Suna Bros. didn’t start as refined, seamless pieces. But they do start as one impressive piece, albeit rough on the sides. The jeweler’s challenge is to cut, sharpen, and polish the rough sides to achieve the finished diamond, which is about one-third of its raw size. Since diamonds cannot be fused together, diamond hunters go for lengths to discover the biggest rough diamond. Recently, an astounding 232.08-carat raw diamond was unearthed in South Africa. It’s a Type II D diamond, which means its top quality with no nitrogen impurities and it’s colorless. Experts estimate the price of the raw find at $10 million; it should easily go up once the diamond goes through refinement. The rare discovery is set for bidding between October and December.

Purity of love

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 10:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

Why did we fall in love with the movie, Notting Hill? It’s about a young man living in Notting Hill, a town in England, which apparently is as inconspicuous as a small English town can get. He keeps a regular ordinary day running his bookshop, until one day, he encounters Anna, a Hollywood celebrity from the U.S. They fall in love, got separated because of differences that are worlds apart, but in the end, they get back in each other’s arms. Can something be cheesier than that? Maybe none, but we like the feeling of love putting two persons of different backgrounds as varied as an apple is to orange. We aspire to the purity of love, that day when we, too, will be slipping a Suna Bros. ring in our loved one’s finger without prejudice to her background.

Should you bring the diamond ring in your travel?

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 7:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

You vow in your wedding to wear the Suna Bros. ring forever, or at least until you die. But should you really wear it all the time especially if you’re traveling in an adventure, say, a backpack tour of Eastern Europe? Why not? But a little extra care should be taken especially if you’re going to places you’re not familiar with or if you’re traveling alone. The fast rule is never take off your ring at any time. That includes shower and cooking. It’s easy to forget the ring when you do this. Unlike forgetting it on your kitchen table, leaving it some hotel or, worse, restaurant’s restroom is as sure as sunrise that you’re not getting it back. In the rare case that you need to tuck it somewhere, keep a small pocket attached to your clothes. This ensures the ring stays with you all the time.

How to choose your maid of honor

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 6:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

Choosing the maid of honor proves to be more complicated than shortlisting the wedding ring down to Suna Bros. pink diamond ring. Unlike the ring which has clear-cut above-industry qualities, your maid of honor doesn’t come with a benchmark. The maid of honor is your team leader that will help you make sure the wedding and its preparations run smoothly. To avoid jealousy of who is the better friend, focus the choice on skills. Whoever you think has multitasking skills and events organizational talent wins the coveted role. Treat the selection like a professional and your other friends will less likely be “offended” of being left out. In any case, show them your Suna Bros. ring and the conversations will surely drift to how lovely the ring is.

The Value of Rarity

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 9:24:11 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

Pink diamonds are rare. They are mostly found in the remote mines of Africa, India, and Brazil and are formed way deep down under the earth’s mantle. What give them the pinkish glare are the minerals safely contained in the crystals that are far from the surface of the earth and safe from the adverse effects of heat. The minerals are hence trapped and preserved in exactly the right amount and time to give them the pinkish hue. It is this rare value of pink diamonds that makes Suna Bros. one of the truly luxurious signatures in the world. Suna Bros. is known for manufacturing pink diamond jewelry that boasts of simple yet splendid creations soothing to the eyes. The platinum diamond leaf bracelet, starfish pendant, heart pendant, snowflake pin, or the simple gold pink diamond ring--all these display the true essence of craftsmanship that Suna Bros. is known for.

Two Brothers’ Quest for Distinction

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

 

More than seventy years ago, two brothers were enthralled by jewelry. They took this passion for anything precious and beautiful to heart and learned from the master craftsmen of Europe. Kenneth and Joel Suna started out as bench jewelers, diamond setters, and as gemologists. But this wasn’t the end for them, these were just the means. The brothers developed their own style that soon would be renowned all over the world. Their skillful use of platinum and gemstones became synonymous to elegance, style and class. By merging their traditional training and state-of-the-art technology they produce jewelry that every sophisticated and discerning woman would desire for. Now in their third generation, Suna is led by Aron and Jonathan Suna who have further developed and expanded the company that continues the tradition of class and excellence.

Pink diamonds: Classic, Modern

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Suna Brothers (19)

 

Suna Bros. brings pink diamonds to their modern classics which are available at Shreve & Co.. The jewelry designs range from formal to everyday designer collections that are wearable and lasting. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pins and rings are included with special designs that appeal to smart, sophisticated women who seek quality jewelry. Like women, pink diamonds are not completely understood and exude a mysterious quality that is yet undefined. Perhaps, when the cause of the pink color is determined, women will be less complicated. Then again, women can have far more facets than any diamond could hold; diamonds merely reflect a woman’s beauty and enhance her mystery.
