Diamond Band For A Special Someone

August 30th, 2016

Finding a wonderful diamond band for the love of your life is often a very difficult task as there are numerous styles as well as designs to make your pick from. To find a diamond band for a man is far more difficult than a woman. There are several metals such as gold, platinum and titanium which are used for making a beautiful band. However, usually have a preference for gold as it amalgamates well with hard metals, which increases the malleability of the design along with making it more durable. In today’s time use of platinum in making of the diamond bands has also increased. Platinum is used in its purest form only and addition of any other metal is highly avoided.

While making a selection of diamond band it is important to take into consideration your lifestyle also. In case you are working then it is better to opt for a high quality and a durable material and the diamonds should be well set within it. However, while making a selection of a band for your engagement or wedding keep in mind your likes and dislikes.

Diamond band should also have a proper fitting and should not trouble you. The edges of the band should be round, blunt edges should be avoided. Avoid purchasing a diamond band light in weight as it can easily bend. There are jewelry stores who sell bands which are not strong, so make a prudent selection and do not fall in the trap. They try to sell bands of low quality at price similar to high quality ones. Make a selection of the band which is extremely graceful and elegant. Select a band which has diamonds around the band partially as it will cost you a little less. Other alternate if you can shell out more money would be to go for a diamond band having diamonds all over.

In today’s time diamond bands are an apt choice for engagements, anniversaries as well as weddings. The men prefer a square shaped band as it has a masculine touch to it. Besides thickness of the diamond band also contribute in giving a masculine touch. In case a man prefers to go with a round shaped band then in that case he wants to go for a softer look.

A diamond engagement ring signifies a commitment, similarly a diamond band spells that love of couple goes full circle. The diamond bands have no gender at all and can be worn by both men and women. The bands worn by grandparents as well as parents can be passed to the further generations irrespective of their gender and can be reserved for emotional reasons. When it comes for a married couple to renew their vows nothing works better than buying diamond bands.

The son of an opera singer and a research scientist, Dan grew fond of music and creativity at a young age. He was in advanced ceramics in the 8th grade and got an A-.

Dan first started playing guitar at age 12, learning as many Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath tunes as possible. This continued to progress into the early 90s and the heyday of Seattle grunge scene. After transcribing Nirvana's "Nevermind" album in its entirety along with Pearl Jam's "Ten" during freshman year of high school, Dan knew all he ever needed to know about the guitar and retired.

After a lengthy 3-month hiatus Dan's first teacher and musical mentor, David O'Suna, gave him a copy of "Wes Montgomery Plays the Blues" and John Coltrane's "Giant Steps". Dan's life now took a turn for the better as he realized he would be embarking on a life long journey of musical exploration and improvisation.

Dan's passion for music has led him to tour all over the country playing primarily with jazz, blues, rock, funk, singer songwriters, and jam bands. His passion for music is equally paired with his enthusiasm for nature and the outdoors, which is why he currently lives at the edge of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, CO.
