How to buy the right size ring.

How To Measure your finger.

  • Find a piece of string or strip of paper no wider than 3/4".
  • Wrap it around the base of the appropriate finger.
  • Use a pen to mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps, forming a complete circle.
  • With a ruler, measure the length from the starting end of the string/paper to the pen mark.
  • Use this measurement and the chart to the right to determine your ring size.

If you're buying the ring as a surprise...

Ask your partner's mother or one of her friends if they know her finger size.

Borrow one of your partner's rings and slide it down a tapered candle. Then measure according to the ring sizer you received in the mail or using the chart above.

Why give earrings?

Earrings make the perfect gift because they are always the right fit. The most basic jewelry wardrobe piece, she may leave the house without a bracelet, but she's almost always wearing earrings.

Most earring styles go with anything, so your gift won't cause her wardrobe issues. The wide variety of earring types, sizes, and prices available makes it easy to find the perfect pair for a gift. She'll remember you every time she wears them.

  • Studs
    Because they're small, stud earrings are easy to wear. They go as easily with a cocktail dress as they do with jeans.
  • Hoops
    Platinum, 18k gold, or sterling silver hoops give a feminine touch, and precious metals go with anything. For added sparkle, choose a pair with CZ's.
  • Other Styles
    You'll find a wide variety of other earring designs that can specifically fit her style. Choose platinum or 18k gold for a lasting gift, or sterling silver for a gift just because.

Studs are the perfect gift for an important occasion. If she is more fashionable and follows the trends, give her princess-cut studs, but if she dresses in classic styles, give round studs.

Even if she has several pairs of earrings already, she'll love to add a pair of beautiful hoop earrings to her rotation. Most women prefer either the white metals or yellow gold, so look to her other jewelry to see what metal she prefers.

And if studs and hoops are too predictable, consider a pair of earrings in a unique design. Choose from styles ranging from the sweet-intentioned to modern 18k gold hearts or drop earrings.

Why give a necklace?

A necklace or pendant adds style to anything she wears. If you give a necklace as a gift, you also have a romantic opportunity to put it on her. She'll lift her hair up so you can wrap your hands around her neck to put it on.

A necklace is any type of chain, or length of precious metal or gems, while a pendant features a single jewel, pearl or charm. A pearl strand is a length of strung pearls.

  • Metal Chains
    Chains go with everything. A fine platinum chain in a choker length will add just a touch of shine. Consider giving her an 18-inch, sterling silver or 18k gold chain to add an element of visual interest to her wardrobe.
  • Pendants
    A pendant is something she can wear with a dress or jeans. The simple design of a solitaire pendant allows all the attention to focus on a beautiful pearl or diamond solitaire. Other pendants feature shapes like a heart, or a cross made of precious metal, diamonds, or gemstones.
  • Fashion Necklace
    These include chains with tags, or chains with decorative beads or gemstones fixed on the necklace, or several decorative beads strung so that they slide around a chain.

Choose the right length

When selecting a necklace or pendant, consider that the length will determine where it will lie on her chest. Remember that longer lengths accentuate the bust while shorter lengths feature the beautiful lines of her neck.

16 in. Choker length:
Just above collarbones. Emphasizes her neckline.

18 in. Princess length:
Hangs over collarbones. The most common length.

24 in. Opera length:
Over blouse or dress. A dramatic length.

Why give a bracelet?

A bracelet is one jewelry item she will see all the time, so she can appreciate it often. She also enjoys the feeling of it on her wrist reminding her of you.

Some bracelets are available in different lengths. So before you purchase, be sure to measure one of her other bracelets to be sure she doesn't need a special length.

Bracelets are usually worn on occasions when she isn't working with her hands. Even when not working, a bracelet's proximity to the hands causes it to get bumped and banged, so it must be very durable. Jewelry designers take this into account, so you can be sure the bracelet you choose will last

  • Chain
    This is the classic bracelet. You'll find a variety of chain designs, like the traditional round-link rolo or wheat chain, in a variety of metals like sterling silver, 18k gold, and platinum.
  • Bangle
    A bangle bracelet can be worn by itself for a simple look, or can be combined with several other bangles. Bangles draw the eye with metallic shine, and several bangles clinking together make a pleasant sound.
  • Tennis
    Nothing sparkles around the wrist quite like a tennis bracelet. Set from start to finish with fine CZ's or other gemstones, these classic expressions of love are always sure to draw admiring compliments.


For a birthday, give her a bangle, or several bangles to wear all at once. Bangles are fun for summer to dress up whatever she's wearing, or she can wear them in winter over a slim-fitting sweater.

The chain bracelet makes the perfect personalized gift for any occasion. With a charm bracelet you can continue to give her charms for special occasions to create a keepsake of memories. Or consider a bracelet with an engraveable tag for a personalized gift.

Cubic Zirconium

Cubic Zirconia is undoubtedly the best diamond simulate available today. Cubic Zirconia has successfully established itself as the high quality and affordable diamond substitute in today's fashionable jewelry market. The untrained and naked eye cannot distinguish the difference between a real diamond and Cubic Zirconia. Even gemologists cannot tell the difference unless various testing and examination is done.

Two German mineralogists discovered the cubic form of zirconium oxide back in 1937. Russian scientists in the mid 1970's learned how to make this mineral in a laboratory. It wasn't until the 1980's when Cubic Zirconia became popular with jewelers. This is when an Austrian company began mass-producing Cubic Zirconia. Since then, with new developments in Cubic Zirconia production, we have been able to produce a new exciting line in many different colors.

Cubic Zirconia is an incredible hard material similar that of a real diamond and with the introduction of color, it has great potential as a gem to fulfill elegant fashion demand at a fraction of the cost.
The composition of this man made product is typically a combination of Zirconium Oxide and Yttrium Oxide both of which are opaque by nature. But when melted together under intense heat reaching almost 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit and then cooled under controlled conditions, they produce what we call Cubic Zirconia. Cubic Zerconia is colorless in its pure state. The various colors are achieved by mixing in small quantities of chemical additives.

Platinum

The purest jewelry metal

The platinum jewelry at Pegasusjewelry is made of fine quality jewelry grade platinum. Its cool white sheen makes platinum our most popular metal of choice for settings, as it accentuates the sparkle and brilliance of a diamond.

Platinum Education

The most appealing characteristic of platinum is its durability. Each time other metals are scratched or polished, a tiny bit of metal is lost. In fact eventually, prongs of white gold and yellow gold may wear down enough that you need to have them reinforced with more metal for safety. But not with platinum. A scratch in platinum may leave a mark on the metal, but this metal is so strong that it will not readily chip or splinter.

While it is the strongest of jewelry metals, it can scratch and develop a patina of wear. Many people prefer this look, unique to platinum. But if you like the shine, a jeweler can polish your jewelry to bring back the original reflective finish. In the mean time, buffing with a soft cloth can give your jewelry renewed luster.

Most platinum jewelry is 95 percent pure platinum, and 5 percent iridium or palladium alloy. For guaranteed quality in platinum, look for the marks 950 Plat or Plat.

Care

Soaking platinum in a mild solution of soap and warm water and gently scrubbing it with a soft-bristled brush is usually all that is required to maintain the metal's luster.

Gold

Gold won't tarnish, rust, or corrode, and though it's very strong, it is also the most malleable of all metals.

Purity

Pure gold is too soft to withstand the stresses of every-day wear, so it is alloyed with a mixture of metals like silver, copper, nickel, and zinc to give it strength and durability. Karatage, noted by a number followed by "k" indicates purity, or how much of the metal in a piece of jewelry is gold. Karatage is expressed in 24ths, making 24k gold 100% gold.

Color

The color of gold is determined by two factors:
  • The type of metal alloys included in it
  • The percentage of each metal alloy

Yellow Gold
In jewelry at Pegasusjewelry, you'll find 18k and 14k yellow gold. 18k gold contains more precious metal than 14k gold. It is composed of 75% gold, which is alloyed with other metals to make it strong enough to withstand every-day wear. Because 14k gold is composed of only 58.3% gold, and 41.7% other metals that give it strength, its gold color is not as rich as 18k gold. 14k gold is most commonly found in cases where strength is most important, like in earring backs and bracelet clasps.

White Gold
Because 18k white gold is 75% gold, and 14k white gold is 58.3% gold, jewelry made from these metals has a slight yellow color. To enhance the whiteness, almost all white gold is plated with rhodium, a shiny, white metal which is extremely hard. Depending on the amount of wear to a piece of jewelry, over time this rhodium plating may wear off, revealing the original metal color. Re-plating is a simple process that can be done to restore your jewelry's whiteness if needed.

Rose Gold
Rose gold gets its color from a larger proportion of copper in the metal alloy. This gives the gold a beautiful pink color.

Pricing

The price of gold jewelry is dependent upon the purity of the gold used or karat weight, as well as the design and construction of the piece of jewelry.

Care

Keep your gold jewelry away from harsh chemicals such as chlorine and cleaning fluids. This will reduce daily abrasions and prolong gold's luster. To clean gold jewelry, use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap and wash gold gently with a soft-bristled brush (a dull tooth brush works well). Store gold pieces separately in soft cloth bags or original boxes to protect them from the exposure to harsh daily elements.

Modern jewelry manufacturing

At Pegasusjewelry, we use only the most modern methods of creating jewelry, ensuring the absolute finest shine and finish available today.

Traditionally, rings were hand made which increased the chance of human error in symmetry and consistency. Today we have the technology to create rings through sophisticated computer software and hardware.

With this technology we are able to design rings or take an image provided to us and transfer it into a beautiful ring from our computers. Here are some of the steps that are taken to create your ring.

1. Design - We first design the ring on computers using three-dimensional software or if you have a picture of a ring we transfer it into our computer.
2. Programming - We then program coordinates into our wax-molding printer.
3. Wax impression - Our wax-molding printer creates the ring in wax form.
4. Investment - We then put the wax mold into an investment.
5. Over night melting - We allow the investment to bake in a special oven over night melting the wax out and leaving a cavity of the ring in the investment.
6. Casting - We then make the casting of the ring.
7. Casting Cleaning - We then do extensive cleaning of the casting.
8. Polishing - We polish the ring to a high luster.
9. Setting - We use the same high quality settings that are used for diamonds
10. Quality Control - Our last but most important step is our quality control inspection. We have an extensive checklist that each ring has to meet in order to be released form the production department.
