  • Diamonds, Carats and Carob Seeds

    Diamonds are considered as one of the most sought after natural materials that the world has to offer. After all, who doesn't get mesmerized by the sparkle and glimmer on a perfectly cut diamond?

    Whether you prefer a half carat diamond or something loud and proud such as this six carat Royal Asscher Brilliant, the most important thing is that you pick out a diamond that fits your style and taste. In some areas of the world, a two carat diamond is the end-all-be-all of engagement rings. In other corners of the world, less IS more when it comes to diamond carat weight. Luckily, at the end of the day, the size of the diamond does not equate to the love one has for another.

    There is actually a much more interesting story as to how diamond carat weight came to be. Centuries ago, early gem traders needed something to weigh out the diamonds before selling them. Carob seeds come from the Carob tree, which is found across the Mediterranean region, Africa, the Middle East and in the Canary Islands. The tiny little seeds found inside the carob tree leaves are all almost the exact same weight. Carob seeds were from then on out used to measure the weight of a diamond. Hence the name, carat, is used for the measurement of a diamond.

    Present day, one carat weighs exactly 0.20 grams. While there use to be a tiny difference in weight when it comes to carob seeds, now a carat is officially the exact same weight world wide. Sometimes, you will also hear diamonds be referred to as a 50 point diamond. One 50 point diamond is the same thing as half a carat. Luckily today, with all of the modern technology, carob seeds are no longer used to weigh diamonds. This filters out any variant that can effect the actual weight of a diamond.

  • Pig & Hen Bracelets are now available at Ace & Spyer Jewelers!

    Jewelry for men has always lagged behind the endless options available for women. As a jeweler myself, I have never been too impressed with what was on the market for men, until now.


    600 pig and hen ace jewelers -4


    Ace Jewelers has just introduced a brand new collection of bracelets for men, now available at Ace & Spyer Jewelers. Pig & Hen bracelets are handcrafted in Amsterdam from authentic shipping rope. The craftsmen at Pig & Hen looked back to their Dutch roots for inspiration. In the 1600's, Dutch sailors sailed the distant seas, conquered feats and discovered new land. Legend has it that they had a tattoo of a pig and a hen on their ankles, and also had both pigs and hens aboard the ship in wooden crates. Hundreds of years later, Pig and Hen was born.

    The Pig and Hen collection is made up of a variety of families including Barato Bob,Gorgeous George, Rum Ron and Fat Fred. Every bracelet is hand woven with real shipping rope and has a D hook with a screw as the closure. Pig and Hen is the cool man's take on the classic sailing bracelet.

    You can shop the Pig and Hen bracelets online here, or stop by Ace & Spyer Jewelers to try them on for yourself.
