Becoming married is a huge step in your life. Not only are you combining your life with someone else, but you are also spending a lot of money on a wedding ceremony you will remember for the rest of your lives. Keeping your spouse happy and satisfied is always on the front burner when you first become married. Over the years, you may be less likely to go out of your way in order to make the other person happy. Always remember, it is the little things in life that people look forward to, and can make such huge differences in the dynamic of the relationship. Your diamond wedding rings are the symbol of your love for one another, but the little things you do for each other are what truly lets that person know you love them to the moon and back.

Diamond Wedding Ring Analytic DataYour diamond wedding rings may seem like yet another material possession for you to keep track of, but they are so much more. They are what tell other people you are off the market and happily married. They are what single people look for before striking up a conversation with you. They are what you see every single day, and remind you that you have another person to consider in every decision you make.

Teaching someone to be thoughtful and conscious of another person’s feelings is a difficult task. People say they never change, and to a certain extent, that is true. If you were not raised to be aware of other people’s feelings, reactions and perceptions, then you probably will never understand the guy, who after 30 years of marriage, still happily carries his wife’s purse when she is trying on clothes, or still opens her car door every time they travel together. It is the little things in life that mean the most. Sure, you can go to the trouble of planning some huge event that happens one time, but that means nothing if the rest of the time you are void of emotion and not very thoughtful at all.

Always keep your wedding rings clean and looking good. This will make you feel better. Since this piece of jewelry is a direct representation of your love, make sure you keep it looking as perfect as you feel in your relationship. Also, wear your diamond wedding rings all the time, especially in public. Seeing your spouse without his or her ring will be a slap in the face if you are out in public together.

Everybody believes that their wedding is going to be some sort of fairy tale romantic event until they get down to the nuts and bolts about planning it. There are far more practical considerations to be made in order to make sure that not only the big day goes off magically, but also the marriage itself is one that is as wonderful as possible. This is true even for what most people think of as the most romantic aspect of the wedding day. The list of what to consider when buying wedding rings may be short, but it is important.

The first consideration needs to be about the marriage and not the wedding. In other words, the diamond wedding rings need to be wedding rings that both people can live with. They are going to be looking at them every day for the rest of their lives. Fads come and go, and it can make for a long life if two or three years after the wedding day the rings look sadly out of date.

Another aspect of why style is important is because there should be a consistency between the engagement ring and the bride’s wedding band as well as between hers and her husband’s wedding ring. One way couples ensure that this happens is by buying their diamond wedding rings as a set with the engagement ring. At the very least – and especially if a significant time has elapsed between the proposal and when the wedding happens – it is best to return to the original jewelry store with the engagement ring so that prospective wedding bands can be matched up.

A final consideration should be given to the possibility of waiting and celebrating the first year of marriage by exchanging diamond anniversary rings. Not only does this help to spread out the expenses over a longer period of time, freeing up additional funds for the wedding itself, it also creates the impression of a magical yearlong celebration of the wedding.

People always want to know what to consider when buying wedding rings. The most important consideration should be to not think of them as wedding bands or diamond wedding rings, but rather as diamond marriage rings. Be sure to select rings not just for that first day, but for all the days of the future.

In this series, we’ll cover popular myths about well-known diamonds – there are quite a few (diamonds as well as myths) so be prepared for some interesting reads. Today, we’ll be covering the Koh-i-Noor, one of the most popular large diamonds of all time.

Here are some common myths surrounding it.

The following has been curated from an article on the BBC website.

Myth 1: The Koh-i-Noor is the preeminent Indian diamond

Reality: The Koh-i-Noor, which weighed 190.3 metric carats when it arrived in Britain, had had at least two comparable sisters, the Darya-i-Noor, or Sea of Light, now in Tehran (today estimated at 175-195 metric carats), and the Great Mughal Diamond, believed by most modern gemologists to be the Orlov diamond (189.9 metric carats).

All three diamonds left India as part of Iranian ruler Nader Shah’s loot after he invaded the country in 1739.

Koh-i-noor Diamond

It was only in the early 19th Century, when the Koh-i-Noor reached the Punjab, that the diamond began to achieve its preeminent fame and celebrity.

Myth 2: The Koh-i-Noor was a flawless diamond

Reality: The original uncut Koh-i-Noor was flawed at its very heart. Yellow flecks ran through a plane at its centre, one of which was large and marred its ability to refract light.

That’s why Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, was so keen that it be re-cut.

The Koh-i-Noor is also far from being the largest diamond in the world: it’s only the 90th largest.
In fact, tourists who see it in the Tower of London are often surprised by how small it is, especially when compared to the two much larger Cullinan diamonds that are displayed near it.

Myth 3: The Koh-i-Noor came from the Kollur mine in India in the 13th Century

Reality: It is impossible to know when the Koh-i-Noor was found, or where. That’s what makes it such a mysterious stone.

Some even believe that the Koh-i-Noor is, in fact, the legendary Syamantaka gem from the Bhagavad Purana tales of Krishna, one of the most popular Gods in the Hindu pantheon.
Indeed, according to Theo Metcalfe’s report, tradition had it that “this diamond was extracted during the lifetime of Krishna”.

What we do know for sure is that it wasn’t mined at all, but unearthed from a dry river bed, probably in south India. Indian diamonds were never mined but found in alluvial deposits of dry river beds.

Myth 4: The Koh-i-Noor was the Mughals’ most precious treasure

Reality: While Hindus and Sikhs prized diamonds over other gems, Mughals and Persians preferred large, uncut, brightly-coloured stones.

Indeed in the Mughal treasury, the Koh-i-Noor seems to have only been one among a number of extraordinary highlights in the greatest gem collection ever assembled, the most treasured items of which were not diamonds, but the Mughals’ beloved red spinels from Badakhshan and, later, rubies from Burma.

In fact, Mughal emperor Humayun even gave away Babur’s diamond – widely thought to be the Koh-i-Noor – to Shah Tahmasp of Persia as a present when he was in exile.

Babur’s diamond eventually wound its way back to the Deccan but it’s unclear how or when it found its way back into the Mughal court thereafter.

Myth 5: The Koh-i-Noor was sneakily stolen from Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah Rangila on the pretext of a ceremonial turban swap

Reality: The popular story is that Nader Shah connived to deprive the Mughal emperor of his diamond, which had been squirreled away in his turban.

But, it was far from being a loose, singular gem that Muhammad Shah could secrete within his turban, and which Nader Shah could craftily acquire by a turban swap.

According to the Persian historian Marvi’s eyewitness account, the Emperor could not have hidden the gem in his turban, because it was at that point a centrepiece of the most magnificent and expensive piece of furniture ever made: Shah Jahan’s Peacock Throne.

The Koh-i-Noor, he writes from personal observation, in the first named reference to the stone – until now untranslated into English – was placed on the roof of this extraordinary throne, set in the head of a peacock.

Myth 6: The Koh-i-Noor was cut rather clumsily by a Venetian cutter and polisher of stone, which reduced its size significantly

Reality: According to French gem merchant and traveller Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, who was given permission from Mughal emperor Aurangzeb to see his private collection of jewels, the stone cutter, Hortensio Borgio, had indeed brutally cut a large diamond, resulting in a sad loss of size.

But he identified that diamond as the Great Mughal Diamond that had been gifted to Mughal king Shah Jahan by diamond merchant Mir Jumla.

Most modern scholars are now convinced that the Great Mughal Diamond is actually the Orlov, today part of Catherine the Great’s imperial Russian sceptre in the Kremlin.

Since the other great Mughal diamonds have largely been forgotten, all mentions of extraordinary Indian diamonds in historical sources have retrospectively come to be assumed to be references to the Koh-i-Noor.
