Educating yourself on precious metals is vital before you make a fine jewelry purchase. The most common precious metals used in creating jewelry are gold, silver, platinum, palladium and tungsten, cobalt, titanium, and stainless steal.

14K white gold, 18K white gold, 14K yellow gold, 18K yellow gold and 14K rose gold (also known as 14K pink gold) are the most commonly used gold alloys. 

14K gold is versitile; It is resistant to tarnish and corrosion and is durable. Pure gold is combined with other metals to create a harder, more durable alloy and to alter its color to create white, rose, or yellow shades.

Palladium is often combined with gold as an alloy to create white gold. Like platinum, palladium is a white metal that does not require plating. Occasion polishing will return both of these metals to a shiny lustrous state. 

Buyers seeking white metal often prefer platinum for their jewelry. Platinum is hypoallergenic and is four times more durable than gold. Its silvery-white surface is visually comparable to white gold, although it is noticeably heavier. Consumers can expect to pay two times more for a platinum ring than they would for its gold counterpart.

Tungsten offers consumers durability and longevity because of it's exceptional strength along with its heavy weight. Tungsten is combined with carbon and other elements to form an alloy that is 10 times harder than gold. Tungsten is hypoallergenic, and is highly scratch resistant and able to hold long lasting high polish. 

Silver is a soft metal with a white coloring and a gleaming finish. It's a by-product of gold, copper, lead, and zinc refining to make it stronger. The most common alloy is sterling silver, a blend of 92.5% pure silver and 7.25% copper. Silver is considerably less expensive than other precious metals. The finest sterling silver jewelry imprinted with a purity of .925, which indicates a ratio of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other alloy metals. Any silver containing less than 92.5% pure silver is not considered sterling.

Cobalt has become a popular material for wedding rings because of its durability, silvery-white shine, hypoallergenic properties and cost-effective price tag. Cobalt is typically used in men’s wedding bands and rings and is perfect for the active lifestyle. 

Titanium is a silver-grey metal that has durability and strength, but is not a heavy material. Titanium is 100% hypoallergenic. Titanium jewelry is usually lightweight, but it's more resistant to bending and scratching when compared to pieces made from other metals.

Stainless steal is not the most popular or traditional choice, but recently it has been used for mens wedding bands, necklaces, and bracelets. It is durable and has hypoallergenic properties, and beautiful silvery white color. Stainless steel is considerably less expensive than other metals.

3. Most diamonds, found in nature, were formed 1 to 3 billion years ago due to extreme heat and pressure. These diamonds were formed 100 to 200 miles below the surface of Earth. Volcanic activity brings diamond crystals much closer to the earth's surface. 

4. A rough diamond looks so much like a pebble that most people would pass it by without a second glance. 


5. The Diamond is the most effective heat conducting material, which expands very little when subjected to high temperatures, unlike most other conducting materials.

9. It is estimated that only 500 tons of diamonds have ever been mined in recorded history to date.

13. On average, each stone will lose 50% of its original weight during cutting and polishing. 


14. Diamonds come in a spectrum of colors. Colored diamonds are called “fancies”. Blue and pink diamonds are among the rarest whereas yellow and brown are among the most common. 


15. 80% of the world's diamonds are not suitable for Jewelry. These are used for the industrial purposes. 


16. Diamonds are one of the world’s, and specifically Africa’s, major natural resources. 


17. An estimated US$13 billion worth of rough diamonds are produced per year, of which approximately US$8.4 billion are from Africa (approximately 65%). 


18. The diamond industry employs approximately ten million people around the world, both directly and indirectly, across a wide spectrum of roles from mining to retailing. 


19. Global diamond jewelry sales continue to grow, increasing three-fold in the past 25 years, and are currently worth in excess of US$60 billion every year. 


20. Australia accounts for producing the most diamonds in volume. 


21. The most recent diamond discoveries were made in North America - in the Northwest Territories of Canada and in Colorado. 


22. America buys more than half of the world’s total gem quality diamonds, accounting for the world’s largest diamond market. 


23. The largest diamond ever found in the US was discovered in 1924 in The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas – the “Uncle Sam Diamond” that weights 40.23 carats. 


24. The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas is the world’s only diamond mine open to the public and this is a dig-for-fee operation for tourists and rock enthusiasts. An average of 74,000 visitors comes to the park each year. About one out of 100 visitors find a diamond.

Sterling silver jewelry is generally created out of 92.5 % silver and around 7.5% other metals. It's important to note that real silver jewelry can blacken from oxidation. In order to keep your silver jewelry sparkling for generations to come, follow these simple steps to prevent tarnishing.

1. Clean With a Polishing Cloth: 

- Polish your silver jewelry gently after each use before returning it to its storage container or armoire. Use a special silver polishing cloth as it helps in cleaning oxidized silver. If you don't have one, a soft, liny-free cloth will suffice. 

- Use long back and forth movements while polishing. Avoid going in circles as that will highlight any scratches in your piece.

- Use different sections of your cloth frequently as you don’t want to accidently rub tarnish back on to your jewelry. 

- Polishing jewelry with a dirty cloth can leave scratches. 

2. Wash With Soap and Water: 

- Gently wash silver jewelry (without gemstones or pearls) in warm water with mild dish soap.

- If your silver jewelry contains gemstones or pearls, use a cotton swab to only clean the silver part.

3. Summer Heat Can Blacken Silver: 

- Avoid wearing silver jewelry when you swim or go to the beach.

- The sun and humidity can damage it and cause tarnishing.

- Salt water can also damage silver jewelry.

4. Remove Silver Jewelry During Workouts and Household Chores:

- Remove your silver jewelry while doing household chores or working out.

- Certain chemicals, such as bleach, latex, and wool as well as foods containing sulphur heighten the tarnishing process.

- Avoid lotions, hairsprays, perfumes, cleaning products, and yardwork when wearing silver jewelry.

5. Store Silver Jewelry to Keep Safe and Clean:

- Remember to store your jewelry in a dry area.

- If left in a humid room like the bathroom it’ll tarnish faster.

- Storing your jewelry after usage will prevent oxidation, tarnishing, and scratches. 

Finding the perfect engagement ring can be a little intimidating... Rightfully so, considering it's one of the most important puchases you will ever make in your life. Whether you're shopping in the store or online, it can be a little confusing if you're not familiar with what you're buying. No need to worry though, we have some simple steps to follow, so you can make the perfect choice for your life-long partner. 

Step 1: Setting Your Budget: According to WeddingWire, the average amount spent on an engagement ring in the U.S. is around $4800.

Step 2: Research is Key: On average, a person spends 3-4 months researching engagement rings.

Step 3: Listen for Hints: Listen. If you and your spouse have talked about marriage before, then he/she has probably mentioned what kind of ring they want. Don't ask a ton of questions at the last minute or you might make it obvious. You don't want to ruin the surprise!

Step 4: Prioritize Shape, Cut, Size, and Color: Shape is the highest priority when it comes to shopping for an engagement ring. The most popular shape is the round brilliant, followed by the princess cut. Some other popular shapes include emerald, asscher, cushion, pear, oval, radiant, and marquise. 

Step 5: Undertand the 4 C's 

  • Cut is the most important characteristic because it has the greatest influence on a diamond's sparkle. Simply put, the better the cut grade, the more it will sparkle. 
  • Color is an important characteristic because the human eye detects sparkle first (diamond cut) and color second. As a diamond's color grade improves, it's price increases. However, at a certain point, the color difference cannot be detected unless under professional magnification. The best color rankings are D, E, and F. 
  • Clarity is an important characteristic because most imperfections can't be seen unless under professional magnification. Clarity refers to the tiny imperfections called inclusions. Diamonds with the least and smallest inclusions receive the highest clarity grades. Diamonds with minor inclusions cost far less making VS2 and SI2 the most sought after. 
  • Carat refers to the diamond's weight, not size. A diamond's cut impacts how large the carat weight will appear. Smaller carat weight diamonds will appear larger with higher cut grades. To maximize your budget, consider buying a diamond that is slightly below your ideal carat weight. For example, instead of a 3.0 carat diamond consider buying a 2.9 carat weight. Simply put, large carat weight does not always mean high value. 

Step 6: Know Her Ring Size: If you get the chance, grab a ring she currently wears and either measure the diameter or bring it with you for sizing. 

Step 7: Shop Online and Save: Shopping online can save you a ton of money. Prices online are normally 25% less than buying in the store. Check out our engagement rings and prices here.

Step 8: Buy the Enagagement Ring!: Make sure the jeweler you purchase your enagagement ring from provides a diamond grading report from the American Gem Society or the Gemological institute of America.

Step 9: Get the Ring Insured: Insurance won't cost you a ton of money. It's normally 1-2% of the appraised value. It will only give you peace of mind, so make sure you get it insured! 

Step 10: Propose With Confidence and Love in Your Heart: This is the moment you have been waiting for. At this point you should know your spouse well (if you follow the steps above). You will be fine! Just make sure you prepare and he or she will be estatic with your proposal. 

Buying an engagement ring at Robert Irwin Jewelers is different. We know an engagement ring is one of the most important purchases of your life.

You go shopping. It’s hard to differentiate from one store to another. You've seen similar styles and each store proclaims its great customer service, great selection, and low prices. All the while the anxiety builds and then out of sheer nervousness, panic, and fatigue you buy!

"The best part is that they were all so friendly. I was at the Perkins store. I did not feel intimated. They let me try on all the rings I wanted and acted like I could stay all day and no one would care. Everyone knew a lot about every piece and I felt like I got a so much more than I expected for how much I had to spend.I just never see service like this anymore. I will be back."

- Sherry Gardner

"I have purchased several items from the Southaven location. Courtney was my sales associate the first time, she was so sweet and has the biggest smile, very helpful and showed me several items until I could decide which to purchase. After that I ask for her every time I go to purchase something, and every time she has the same sweet smile and willingness to help me find the perfect piece. I recommend asking for her."

"Kat and the rest of the staff are amazing. I've had great experiences every time I've gone. I have used the Bartlett store and the one in East Memphis, both have their own specialty- Bartlett is great for when you just need to pick a perfect gift and don't want to be overwhelmed by choices(and ask for Kat if she's there) East Memphis location is more high end and the guy there who helps you design jewelry is a genius! I have made the mistake of purchasing from a big box retailer but never again! RIJ is the only place I will ever do business."

- Sarah Pelcharsky

"I was recently in the Northern Mississippi area and had a battery failure on my watch. I visited one battery outlet and two jewelers of which all were afraid to attempt the mission. There was ack of knowledge or maybe desire, anyway I came upon the Robert Irwin Jewelers store in Southaven. I entered the store thinking I would get the same "I can't do it." I was greeted pleasantly by Ginny Buster, I told her my situation, she took the watch, she inspected it briefly stating some concerns on how too access the battery and off she was... but back in a flash with a fully operational watch . That watch did not intimidate her at all. I cannot say enough after three prior 'can't do its', this dynamic Jeweler fixed it in minutes. I live 9 hours from the store location, but will say this, any jewel needs in the future large or small, a nine hour trip will not be an issue. My visits to Northern Mississippi are always great and I would like to say again, Thank You to Robert Irwin Jewelers and a special thank you to Ginny Buster. The Robert Irwin chain should be proud to have such an outstanding employee . THANK YOU  Curtis Hiepler ps : I will be back for a bracelet ! Thanks again."

- Curtis Hiepler

Thank you so much for helping Hunter and I take this next step together Cindy!"

When you fall in love with a piece of jewelry you tend to wear it on a regular basis, and here at Robert Irwin Jewelers our jewelry is hand-crafted to last a lifetime. However, you must give your jewelry the proper care to keep it looking brand new. Below we have listed some helpful guidelines to follow, to ensure that your jewelry is preserved and shining beautifully. 

Basic Jewelry Guidelines

  • Take Off Your Jewelry During Physical/Manual Tasks: You might be exercising, cleaning the house, or working on the yard. During these tasks make sure you remove your jewelry. During these common taks you can damage your jewlery with exposure to certain chemicals. While doing weight exercises you might accidentally knock a precious stone out of it's setting or or a band could get banged-up during a weight exercise.
  • Cosmetics Can Damage Your Jewelry: Lotions, perfumes, and even hair sprays can dull the finish on gemstones. Certain oils can stick to the faceted surfaces of diamonds and dull their shine. Pearls are pourous and fragile, so many cosmetic chemicals /makeup can damage them. You definitely don’t want to be wearing your strand of pearls when you add your finishing touch of hairspray. Putting jewelry on after applying cosmetics will limit exposure to jewelry and any potential damage.
  • Wearing Jewelry While Swimming: Whether you're swimming or in a spa, it's important to remove your jewelry. Salt water and chlorine can damage your jewelry. They react witht the metals and can cause color changes and structural damage.  Sweating it up in the spa? Sweat can damage sterling silver.

Care for Your Jewelry With These Simple Steps

  • Clean your jewelry regularly: Warm soapy water and a toothbrush is a simple way to clean jewelry. There are also several affordable jewelry cleaners available online and in stores. 

  • When you're not wearing your jewelry store it in a clean, dry place: Try keeping your jewelry in a fabric-lined jewelry case, or in a box with compartments and dividers to prevent pieces from scratching each other. Belive us, it's a great investment. 

  • Look for loose stones, prongs, clasps, and vulnerabilities:  Keep an eye on loose stones on a bracelet, necklace, earrings, or rings. It’s common for people to lose a  piece of jewelry or individual stones. If you have any questions about repair or cleaning we can do it for you to make sure it has the beautiful shine you desire. 

  • Don't procrastinate. Get your valuable jewelry insured: Get your jewelry insured folks. It will give you peace of mind. 

If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call 800-238-9228 or email us at support@rijewelers.com.

Let’s be honest.... Giving a gift is the greatest feeling you can have... And it feels even better when the recipient of the gift is ecstatic about what he or she received. It could be Mother’s Day, a wedding anniversary, Christmas, a special milestone, a personal achievement, or a birthday.

When it comes to gift giving, you may feel a lot of pressure to find the perfect gift. Diamond jewelry is undeniably the most welcomed and treasured gift you can give for any occasion.

1. Diamond jewelry is one of the only gifts that will evoke an animated response that will literally take his/her breath away.

2. Need a classy and sophisticated gift? Diamond jewelry is the answer. Whether it’s a diamond pendant or earrings, jewelry can be customized to suit the recipient perfectly. You can cater to his/her personality, color preferences and style.
