Royal Wedding Bells are Ringing

It’s almost here. The royal wedding is April 29 and as expected, demand for the sapphire engagement ring has increased. The ring that Prince William gave to the future princess is an 18 carat white gold ring set with an oval sapphire center and round cut diamond side stones.

Since the announcement I have seen countless variations on this style come across my desk to photo for our customers. I even saw a version where the blue sapphire center was replaced with a green emerald which led me to discover that the princess style ring is actually available with almost any center stone.

So what makes this ring so popular? It is a very pretty ring, but I’m sure the royal connection might have a little more to do with it. Scot, one of our associates here at Kranich’s Jewelers in the Logan Valley Mall store, informed me the reaction is almost identical to the last royal wedding, which was the first time the sapphire ring was featured in the public eye. Sales of what was then referred to as the Princess Diana ring continued to remain strong for years after the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

What’s old is new again so be sure to keep us in mind if you are looking for a ring similar to the royal sapphire and diamond engagement ring. We have a wide selection of designs that are perfect for the princess in your life. Browse our entire collection of Kate Middleton Style Rings HERE

Creating the perfect wedding slideshow – A Moment Frozen In Time

brideandgroomHere at Kranich’s Jewelers, we want you to have the best possible experience on your wedding day. We know that we have the engagement ring and the wedding bands that you are looking for, but there are so many other things happening on your wedding day that we thought we could offer a little comment.

One thing that I have noticed becoming more and more popular is a wedding slideshow during the reception. The past two weddings that I have attended both had these visual trips down memory lane and each are very entertaining, especially if you are a guest an occasionally see yourself in one of the snapshots.

If you have a wedding planner, they usually take care of setting up the slideshow, perhaps even producing it themselves. However, a lot of professional photographers may offer to create your custom slideshow for your reception and include it in your photo package price. You just have to ask them if they have the software to make it, and supply them with the photos that you want to use.

But as is the case of your author, most people out there have at least one person they know that has some computer experience. Some of the best slideshows that I have seen have come from a friend of the bride and groom. And today all of the tools needed to create a slideshow of your own are easy to find. Lots of people use power point every day for presentations. It’s not hard to use that same technique to create a slide show. Too much hassle? Simply put all of your photos in a windows folder and use the slideshow function in the image viewer. If you want to go a little fancier, one of the most useful slideshow websites that I can recommend is http://animoto.com/. They offer the ability to add video into your slideshows with professional style.

So if you are looking to add this little touch to your big day, we hope that we might have offered some helpful tips. Your wedding planner can handle all of these details, but if you do it yourself, you can still come away with a memorable display that everyone is sure to love.
