We Found Love in a Hopeless Place – A Bachelor Pad Proposal September 11, 2012Posted by Jill Renee in : Buying Engagement Rings, Diamond Jewelry, Eco-Friendly Jewerly, Engagement Rings, Jewelry, Press Releases , 4comments
For all of you Bachelor and Bachelorette fans, there was a shocking proposal last night on the finale of Bachelor Pad, Season 3. Tony Pieper popped the big question last night to Blakeley Shea. The couple announced on live television that they were moving in together and after that Tony shocked everybody with a proposal.
Tony, from Emily’s season of the Bachelorette and Blakeley, from Ben’s season of the Bachelor, met on Bachelor Pad Season 3. They were not paired together at the beginning of the show but after drama and people getting voted off, the couple found each other. They hit it off fast and their first overnight date was where the magic really sparked. The couple announced right before the surprise engagement that Blakeley would be moving to Portland, Oregon to move in with Tony. Tony, a single father, popped the question by stating that she was the perfect addition to his family and he could not imagine spending his life without her. Blakeley was shocked but of course she said yes.
Tony produced a black Neil Lane box out of his pocket and presented Blakeley with a lovely halo ring. Neil Lane is the designer who always does the ring for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
All of the contestants admit to coming to Bachelor Pad for the money, and if love happens than it happens. Blakely and Tony seemed like an unlikely couple at the beginning but it just goes to prove that love can be found when you least expect it.

Canadian Diamonds Now Featured in Engagement Rings April 9, 2009Posted by Jill Renee in : Canadian Diamonds, Press Releases , 1 comment so far
Conflict-free diamonds and recycled metal jewelry give shoppers options for Earth Day and every day.
Canadian diamonds are now available at Danforth Diamond, one of the Internet’s leading diamond engagement ring sources. Their database of loose diamonds now features Canadian diamonds that can be placed in one of their Harmony diamond engagement ring settings or purchased for a pre-existing ring setting.
With concerns about funding violence in Africa through “blood diamonds,” Canada has become a source of socially-responsible diamonds in recent years becoming the world’s third-largest producer of diamonds. These conflict-free diamonds are mined in remote areas of the northern territories of Canada.
Canadian diamond engagement rings can be made to your specifications through Danforth Diamond by selecting the cut, carat, color and clarity of your Canadian diamond and then paring it with a Harmony ring setting. First, search for a diamond using the Search for Diamonds function. One of the Report fields in the search is “Canadian”. After reviewing the details of a diamond, add it to a ring and select from Danforth Diamonds’ expansive collection of Harmony solitaire settings, three-stone settings, and settings that feature other gemstones. Pairing a Canadian diamond with a Harmony engagement ring setting results in the most eco-friendly engagement ring available.
“Our current and potential customers email us with questions and special requests,” said Jill Renee, president of Danforth Diamond. “We’ve received a number of customer requests for Canadian diamonds for their wedding jewelry. We had a few diamond suppliers from Canada but this prompted us to explore new vendors.”
Whether Canadian in origin or not, Danforth Diamond only receives its diamonds from sources that adhere to the Kimberley Process, whereby a diamond’s origins are tracked in order to ensure it has not contributed to the violence that plagues much of the diamond industry in Africa. Using conflict-free diamonds is part of Danforth Diamond’s commitment to the earth and its inhabitant.
Ethical and eco-friendly engagement rings are exclusively available at Danforth Diamond by paring Canadian diamonds with Harmony recycled precious metals. An alternative to mining new metal, Harmony takes precious metal from old jewelry, jewelry scrap, and metal from industrial uses and recycles them to make new jewelry pieces. Providing a recycled metal jewelry option increases Danforth Diamond’s ability to give their customers environmentally responsible jewelry at an affordable price.
Jill Renee added, “Earth Day is coming on April 22 and each year more individuals and businesses become actively involved in taking care of the planet and its inhabitants. As a company, Danforth Diamond continues to look for innovative ways to provide earth-friendly and green diamond engagement rings and other jewelry.”

Danforth Diamond Offers Eco-friendly Jewelry Made from Recycled Gold, Platinum & Other Metals September 16, 2008Posted by Jill Renee in : Buying Jewelry, Eco-Friendly Jewerly, Press Releases , add a comment
Harmony Recycled Precious Metals used to manufacture green engagement jewelry â€“ everything from recycled platinum engagement rings to recycled palladium wedding bands for women & men.
Midlothian, VAÂ September 16, 2008 — The extensive collection of engagement rings and wedding rings offered by Danforth Diamond are now made from 100% recycled precious metals. Danforth Diamond partnered with jewelry manufacturer, Hoover & Strong, an industry leader in eco-friendly jewelry manufacturing and refining, to provide a green jewelry option to the marketplace.
|The timing of those requests was uncanny and they confirmed a need for eco-friendly jewelry that wasn’t being met|
As jewelers seek ways to be more eco-friendly and find alternatives to mining, recycling precious metals has become increasingly popular. With the slogan “Our jewelry is refined â€“ not mined” Danforth Diamond emphasizes that while mining displaces earth and upsets the ecosystem of the area being mined, refining precious metals uses far fewer resources and has a lesser impact on the environment. “There is no difference between recycled metal and newly mined metal,” states Jill Renee, president of Danforth Diamond. “Both offer the same quality, durability, and shine. I believe this isn’t a trend; it’s the new way of doing business. There is no reason why all jewelry can’t be made from recycled material.”
Harmony Recycled Precious Metals takes unwanted or damaged jewelry, shavings and metal lost during the jewelry manufacture and crafting processes, and scrap precious metals from industrial uses and recycles them. The metals are melted down to separate them â€“ the precious metals are separated from alloys that were added to provide strength or shine â€“ and then all are reused in the manufacturing of new “green” jewelry pieces or other items.
Approximately 90% of the products on the danforthdiamond.com site carry the Harmony Recycled Precious Metals designation.
Prompting their search for a jewelry manufacturer who uses recycled metals, Danforth received several emails from customers and comments on the Danforth Diamond Blog asking about recycled metal jewelry options. “The timing of those requests was uncanny and they confirmed a need for eco-friendly jewelry that wasn’t being met,” Jill Renee said.
The use of Harmony Recycled Precious Metals reiterates Danforth Diamond’s commitment to people- and earth-friendly jewelry. They are a member of StopBloodDiamonds.org and are in compliance with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme which certifies the origin of diamonds to make certain they are ethically sourced and conflict free.
Jill Renee added, “Danforth Diamond’s commitment to our customers is to provide engagement jewelry pieces that are as socially and environmentally responsible as they are beautiful.”

Hypoallergenic palladium perfect for those with nickel allergies
Midlothian, VA – November 1, 2007 – Danforth Diamond, the engagement rings experts, released today their new line of 18k palladium white gold diamond engagement rings, wedding bands, and earrings. Danforth makes this announcement in the face of growing demand for quality white gold rings at affordable prices, adding another option to their extensive line of top quality jewelry available at: http://www.danforthdiamond.com
By replacing the nickel or silver traditionally used to make 18K white gold with palladium, Danforth can now offer superior quality without the fear of the common nickel allergy that drives many customers away from white gold, creating another option for their valued customers.
Long used by jewelers as a substitute for Platinum, Palladium jewelry came to prominence during World War II when Platinum was reserved for military uses. As it bears many of the same properties, but not the price-tag, usually associated with Platinum, Palladium was an excellent option for top quality jewelry instead of Platinum. By adding Palladium to yellow gold, jewelers are able to produce white gold that holds the white coloring better and longer than that made with nickel or silver, and helps avoid metal allergies usually associated with nickel.
The addition of Palladium to select wedding bands and diamond engagement rings is why Danforth Diamond continues to be the jeweler more people prefer. This announcement is another in Danforth’s long line of meeting their customers’ demand for high-quality jewelry. Danforth Diamond plans to continue offering the high-quality products their customers appreciate through their site at: http://www.danforthdiamond.com/ .
About Danforth Diamond:
Danforth Diamond has over 50 years of experience offering quality jewelry for the best value. As experts they provide guidance and advice to help you enjoy the diamond purchasing process, and are known for their wedding jewelry, including platinum, palladium, yellow gold, and white gold engagement rings and matching sets. They are committed to your continued satisfaction.

Danforthdiamond.com Announces the World’s Largest Collection of Palladium Engagement Rings
MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – March 14, 2007 – Keeping in step with customer demand and current trends in the diamond jewelry industry, Danforthdiamond.com recently introduced a large collection of palladium engagement rings on their website. You can visit the online jewelry retailer at: http://www.danforthdiamond.com/
Palladium, a metal in the platinum family that is just as durable as it’s more expensive cousin, is the hottest new metal in the jewelry industry. Scott Kay, a master jeweler and authority in the industry, is calling palladium ‘the industry’s best-kept secret.
Danforthdiamond.com decided to specifically create the world’s largest collection of palladium engagement rings because of growing customer demand. For most brides, this is the one piece of jewelry in their collection that needs to be able to endure a lifetime – and palladium’s durability makes it an attractive alternative to other metals.
“The new palladium alloys used for engagement ring manufacturing are excellent and make this a hard option to beat when choosing metal for that perfect ring,”says Jill Renee, president of Danforthdiamond.com. That’s why we have expanded our selection of palladium engagement jewelry.
Customer demand encouraged Danforthdiamond.com to become a leader in offering palladium wedding jewelry. Every category of engagement ring offered on the site: solitaires, three-stone rings and rings with side stones has a palladium option. Matching engagement ring and wedding band sets are also available.
There are several different types of customers who consistently express interest in palladium:
- Budget-conscious couples purchasing jewelry made from the platinum family at a much more affordable price
- Trend-setting brides attracted to the buzz palladium is generating in the jewelry industry
- Brides with sensitive skin who may have had to pass on white gold because of a nickel allergy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with palladium they have a more durable option
“Our customers are making a lifetime investment when purchasing our jewelry, and we want to give them as many options as possible to meet every taste and budget,” Renee says. “And at Danforthdiamond.com, they’ll find the most comprehensive collection of palladium engagement rings, in addition to an incredible inventory of fine jewelry pieces to enhance their collection.”

Online Diamond Jewelry Retailer Joins StopBloodDiamonds.org January 2, 2007Posted by Jill Renee in : Buying Engagement Rings, Diamonds, Press Releases , add a comment
Richmond, VA Ã¢â‚¬â€œ January 2, 2006 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ DanforthDiamond.com, an online diamond jewelry retailer committed to offering conflict-free diamonds, recently joined StopBloodDiamonds.org. For information about Danforth Diamond or to see their conflict-free diamond jewelry, visit: http://www.danforthdiamond.com.
Company president Jill Renee said the company decided to join the organization because though they are already in compliance with the Kimberley Process, they wanted to go one step further to assure customers of their commitment to conflict-free diamonds.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are in the diamond business, and we acknowledge there have been problems in the diamond trade.Ã¢â‚¬Â Renee said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We joined StopBloodDiamonds.org because we want to help our customers feel confident that the diamonds they purchase from us are legitimate and conflict-free.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Years of war have plagued Angola, Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo, countries at the center of the conflict diamonds controversy (conflict diamonds are also called blood diamonds because of the violence associated with them).
The Kimberley Process was enacted in 2003 as a joint government, international diamond industry and civil society initiative to stem the international flow of conflict diamonds. Retailers in compliance with the initiative meet a certain set of criteria, know where their diamonds come from and have documentation that guarantees their diamond inventory is conflict-free.
By joining StopBloodDiamonds.org, DanforthDiamond.com joins a growing community of jewelers who are seriously committed to conflict-free diamonds. To become a member, DanforthDiamond.com was required to:
- Show their support for the Kimberley Process
- Express their desire for a steady supply of clean diamonds
- Provide their customers with accurate information regarding their diamonds by letting them know about the practices of diamond mining and trading
- Perpetually emphasize the need for an effective and continuous campaign against blood diamonds and for measures to be strictly employed
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The last thing you want is to look at a gift that is going to last you a lifetime and wonder if someone died so that you could have that diamond,Ã¢â‚¬Â Renee says. Ã¢â‚¬Å“And at DanforthDiamond.com, you can buy any diamond in our inventory and enjoy it for a lifetime with a clear conscience.Ã¢â‚¬Â
