8 Reasons to Buy Danhov

We’re obviously proud of the bridal and fine jewelry created in our California office, and of course we’d love everyone to choose a Danhov engagement ring, wedding band or piece of fine jewelry.

There are a few, or eight, good reasons to keep in mind when shopping for your big jewelry purchase:

1. HANDMADE IN THE USA: Danhov has been making handmade and hand-assembled bridal and fine jewelry in the USA for more than 30 years. This ensures quality and strength for jewelry that will last a lifetime.

2. SUPERIOR DIAMOND STANDARDS: All diamonds used in Danhov jewelry are true VS1 and F/G color.

3. ETHICAL SOURCING: The precious metals and diamonds used in Danhov products are all sourced from reputable wholesalers who certify they are from conflict-free areas.

4. QUICK TURNAROUND: Danhov provides a 2-3 week turn-around time for our individually created pieces.

5. AWARD-WINNING DESIGNS: Danhov is an award-winning designer; accumulating several accolades for best engagement ring design.

6. LIFETIME MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY: All Danhov jewelry is covered by a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty that will cover any manufacturing defects. Danhov’s warranty automatically terminates if any repairs or modifications, beyond setting the center stone, are made by anyone other than Danhov.

7. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE: Danhov provides a wide range of price points; our rings are individually made so they are easy to customize and can be made for any size, shape or type of center stone – perfect for an engagement, special anniversary, or gift for any occasion.

8. ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTION: Danhov bridal and fine jewelry is eco-friendly; harsh chemicals and large machinery used by many other jewelry companies are not used to create our handcrafted or hand-assembled pieces.

Happy National Proposal Day!

Many people dream, plan, and anticipate for the big day that will lead them down the altar with their soul mate—but before they say I do, they have to say YES!

In the spring, many couples decide to take the next big step in their budding romance because of National Proposal Day. There is no exact date on record when this special day was first observed, but it was created by Texan John Michael O’Loughlin to dedicate a specific day to encourage marriage proposals.

March 20 was chosen as the special date due to the alleged effects of the Vernal Equinox, or spring awakening, to the human hormones, symbolizing the equal forces between the couple necessary in making a marriage work.

Obviously, the question of marriage is traditionally accompanied with a special engagement ring selected with great care. In honor of National Proposal Day, we rounded up some adorable couples that recently popped the question. We wish them all much happiness and a future of fulfilled dreams!

Marissa and Michael

Marissa and Michael

“I don’t even think I said yes before I kissed him 100x over. I looked behind me only to find his entire family, two photographers, and bystanders all watching us! Not only did Mike propose at the most beautiful place on earth, but also made sure that everybody was there to capture that moment. People only dream of experiencing a moment as beautiful as that, and I can’t believe that I was lucky enough to experience that with the man of my dreams. My fiancé took me above the clouds to ask me to be his wife, and I promise to keep him on cloud 9 for the rest of his life.” (HowHeAsked.com)

 

Jeff and Andy

Jeff and Andy

“We had a party on the beach with our friends, but I got antsy and wanted to take a stroll. We stopped to look at a house on the beach. I was making comments about it and wondering why Andy wasn’t saying anything. As I turned to address him, there he was on one knee with a ring box. When we got back to our friends, Andy had arranged for champagne to be served.” (TheKnot.com)

 

Cory and Nathan

Cory and Nathan

“He mumbled something about having loved me for three months and that made us both laugh because it had been three years. That broke the shock, and he started again and it was the sweetest. I said yes, of course, and hugged him and after a minute he asked if I wanted to put on the ring. I was so busy processing everything that I had forgotten about it! After the proposal, I realized that everyone had known it was happening and had been taking pictures.” (HowHeAsked.com)

 

Sonya and Nadeem

In the middle of our conversation, he asked if he could have a piece of my watermelon and I said “no, get your own”. He said, “well can you grab a me fork from the basket so I can eat the one in my jar”. As I’m opening the basket, I see a gold covered box! I turn around to ask “what is that?!”, but before I know it he’s on one knee asking me ‘will you marry me?’. After 6 years, I said yes!” (HowHeAsked.com)

For those who haven’t prepared for today as “your big day”, a second chance comes during the Autumnal Equinox on September 23.

Begin the rest of your lives together by proposing with Danhov – a handcrafted engagement ring or wedding band is the perfect symbol of your love.

Yellow Gold Gains Popularity in Bridal

Y104-OV-4

For decades white gold and platinum have been the first choice for brides-to-be. But, everything old becomes new again, so yellow gold engagement rings seem to have made a comeback.

AE133-Y-4

 

Gold prices have helped with the surge in popularity, but it also is a shift to a softness and elegance of a more romantic era. We agree, yellow gold just feels glamorous.

In addition, recent runway shows have given a nod to a 70s vibe, which has increased demand for yellow gold in timepieces and fashion jewelry. So it isn’t surprising that the popularity in bridal would follow to create a consistent look and add warmth. However, the purity and richness of white gold or platinum will probably still continue to be the most popular when it comes to engagement rings and wedding bands.

 

Regardless of the metal you choose for your bridal set, don’t’ be afraid of mixing golds. Whether white, yellow or rose, they all look great together and create a look uniquely yours!

Prop 8 Plaintiffs Get Wedding of Their Dreams

GAY_WEDDING_BANDS_ONYOn the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that overturned the discriminatory Prop. 8 law in California, Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, Prop. 8 plaintiffs, will finally have the wedding of their dreams.

Danhov is proud to be the designer of the men’s platinum wedding bands they will be exchanging after they walk down the aisle at The Beverly Hilton on June 28. The attorneys who argued their case, Ted Olsen and David Boies, will officiate at this celebration with family and friends.

In addition to their upcoming wedding, HBO Documentaries is premiering “The Case Against 8” on Monday, June 23. “The Case Against 8” follows lawyers and plaintiffs from confidential war-room strategy sessions to last-minute trial preparation. During the documentary Jeff and Paul share intimate interviews regarding their relationship, desire to be married, and hopes for a family. They are ready to have children, but hesitated to start a family without the traditional status and legal protections of marriage.

Danhov congratulates Paul and Jeff on fulfilling their dream to be married after their nearly 5-year court battle. We’re happy to be a part of this special day.
