... who LOVE Art Deco engagement rings! We may be a little biased since one of our specialties is 1920's diamond engagement rings, but who can resist a gorgeously unique antique stunner?! Scarlett Johansson sure can't! Check out her beautiful vintage engagement ring below and click on the link to People Style Watch for the full details!
For most, the engagement ring buying process can seem quite daunting. Style, size, price, pressure to buy and other factors can run ones' nerves ragged. However, at Walton's we want each and every one of our customers to feel comfortable to ask questions and voice concerns in a pressure free environment. If you and your loved one are happy, we are happy! We also take the time to explain the key factors that are taken into consideration when buying a diamond. Here's the basics of what to look for:
- Color: The amount of color in a diamond on a scale of D to Z, D being the whitest, and Z having the most color.
- Clairty: The absence or presence of inclusions and blemishes. The clarity grade scale ranges from Flawless to I3. The grades are based on the number, size, relief, and position of inclusions seen under 10X magnification.
- Cut: How the diamond is cut based on its proportions, symmetry and polish. These all effect a diamond's brilliance and sparkle.
- Carat Weight: The size of the diamond.
Walton's is a family business and we like for our customers to feel like part of the family. We have a "Wall of Love" with pictures of couples that have gotten engaged with a Walton's ring! Our wall is constantly growing, and for that we are always grateful! So now that you're equipped with some of the basics when purchasing a diamond, the question becomes, will you be joining our Wall of Love? (After she says yes, of course!)
We have been giving our store front some major TLC in the last week! Walton's now has a new black and gold awning and a fresh coat of paint! We still have a few more exciting additions happening in the next month, but in the meantime, check out our before and after photos!
