Does size matter?...

A question I am often asked by many curious women and bride to be's is... which diamonds look the largest?

If you compare carat to carat- the Marquise diamond cut has the largest surface area, making it appear larger than other diamond shapes of the same carat weight.

The marquise is the football (AFL style) shaped diamond, others might say it's boat or eye shaped also. It's elongated cut makes this diamond stomp on the rest with approx 20% greater spread.

Another diamond that I love is the oval shaped diamond, like the marquise an oval cut can lengthen the finger and make it look slender. The traditional shape of the oval gives it a broader appeal and still has a very good spread or size for weight.

There are many factors to consider when trying to find the perfect diamond. Please follow the links to find out more.

To stack or not to stack

Here at Cassandra Mamone HQ we love stacking our rings, whether it be wide bands, thins bands, diamonds or not.

The essence is you mix and match your different rings, not necessarily to complement each other but to make a mini statement on your pretty finger.
We love mixing colour tones too, put 'em all together if you must -we love mixing rose gold and white gold.

We say stack it all the way. 'Til you can't bend your finger. What's your perfect stack combo?!

'White Gold Leaf" ring, 'Rose Gold Leaf' ring and 'By Night' eternity ring.

'Rose Gold Barrel' ring with 'White Gold Pave` Dome' ring

Assorted Cassandra Mamone engagement rings in white gold paired with 'Rose Gold Barrel' ring

Go for it!!

Rechelle's custom engagement ring

Rechelle was living on the Gold Coast when she met Michael from Adelaide and he swept her off her feet.  They were together for 2 years long distance before Rechelle made the move to Adelaide.

After 4 years living in Adelaide...

The 30th November 2013 was a beautiful sunny day and the couple headed to Grange beach. When they arrived, Rechelle noticed that located near the Grange Hotel there was a Mariachi band playing on the grass. Rechelle recalls thinking 'this is pretty random'! Rechelle and Michael sat on the grass listening to the music and Michael asked his lovely girlfriend to stand up and dance with him. Michael then requested a song 'Guantanamera'. It wasn't until later that Rechelle remembered Michael had been singing that song all week.

Michael then got on one knee and asked Rechelle four special words...
 "Will You Marry Me?"

 "I was literally in shock and had no idea what was going on then said "Yes"!! I was very happy, excited and emotional." Rechelle says.
Just after the proposal, Michael and Rechelle with the Three Amigos

The Ring...
Rechelle and Michael both visited Cassandra Mamone after the proposal as Michael wanted Rechelle to have input into the engagement ring he would give her.  

The sparkling custom engagement ring features a beautiful brilliant cut diamond surrounded by a halo and half a band of round brilliant cut diamonds all in a shared claw setting in 18ct white gold.

"Cassandra did an amazing job I am so happy with the ring!! It's hard not to look at it all the time." - Rechelle
The stunning and sparkling custom made engagement ring for Rechelle

The date for the lovely couple to wed is the 14th March 2015.
