    5 Tips for our ladies- How to pick your engagement ring

    The Diamond Daughters are here to help you with every part of the process of picking your engagement ring. If you are just starting & you think he might propose soon, here are a few tips to help you get the ring that YOU will love.

    1. Know your budget-It is important to talk to your partner and figure out a price range you feel comfortable with for your ring. This way, when you start shopping around & looking at designs, you have an idea of which rings will work with your budget. Once you set your budget, start looking at styles. If you want the proposal to be a total surprise, you can always contact us and we’ll provide a price range of what your ring might cost (which will help point you in the right direction).

    2. Pick your shape - There are many shapes when it comes to diamonds. There are also current trends - pick the shape that YOU like the best. If you are not sure where to start, look at Pinterest or magazines to get some ideas. Round shape is the “classic” shape and will always stay that way. The top diamond shapes for 2017-2018 are rounds, cushion, pear shape and princess. It really is up to you and what you think will look good on your finger.

    3. Pick your style & make a Pinterest board! - This is the fun part! Start pinning and show your friends your favorite diamond shapes and ring styles. Pick different shapes & styles and go crazy with it (just for fun!). You can always narrow down the styles you like from there. By showing this to your friends, or even boyfriend, it will give them an idea of what you like & he will probably ask your friends or a family member for some help when the time comes.

    4. Try on rings and see them on your finger- So you picked different shapes and styles but you still can’t pick just one. Come see us, the Diamond daughters! We will share our pretty rings with you and you will get a quick engagement ring preview from us. We love to share our knowledge with others and we really enjoy helping our customers create the ring of their dreams. Once you know your style, we will keep it on file & and also get your finger size-this is a very important part of the process!.

    5. Enjoy the process & share your ideas with your besties or family members - You think he will propose soon? Maybe not? The timing is not as important as knowing you’ll get your dream ring that you’ll LOVE. That is why you have to tell your close family or your friends about the ring that you would like. Maybe you have a group of friends that you all hang out with; this will be very helpful when the time comes, trust me.

    Keep in mind, it is now a trend to have the women come to us first so can we help them decide what kind of design they would like. We may even pick the diamond together and all he would have to do is come to our shop & seal the deal! This is the best way to make sure you get your dream ring; and believe me, you will want to have a ring that you just cannot stop staring at, a ring that you’ll want to show off to everyone. That’s the best part after all…

    If this is a total surprise, at least pick your shape and let him know what it is, or tell a friend you think he’ll ask for help. We offer the option of purchasing a diamond and putting it in a solitaire (a simple ring without diamonds). Once he proposes, you can bring it back to us and we'll give you credit back for the ring and you can design your dream ring together. This is a good way to still be surprised while saving your money and creating the design that you always hoped for.

    Please feel free to contact the Diamond Daughters with any questions - we are here to help.

  • What to expect when you're expecting… a custom engagement ring

    What to expect when you're expecting… a custom engagement ring.
    When it comes to engagement rings, you want to get the most for your budget and the Diamond Daughters are here to help. We will do everything in our power to keep things under your budget while giving you you your dream engagement ring.
    We will walk you through the insides of choosing a diamond. We’ll help you find the perfect one for you! We will listen to what you have in mind and design your ring around your preferences.
    Step one: CAD (3D Computer Aided Design/Rendering) - We describe your desired ring to our team & with that information we design a computer image! How awesome is that!? You'll get to see the ring from every single angle. In this part of the process we are able to make any changes in the design and size. We make as many changes needed until we feel the ring is perfect. 
    WOOHOO! Moving on!
    Step two: WAX- The final rendering after all the changes is then made of wax. You'll get to actually see your ring- in wax form! This way, our client gets an idea of the exact dimensions and proportions of the ring before moving on to the next step! How amazing is that? To be able to make corrections in between is such a huge benefit. It allows you to feel confident in the process and builds excitement towards the final results. This will obviously lead to engagement ring perfection, duh.
    Step three: CAST- Once we approve the wax design, its time for casting. During this process, the metal (gold) is poured into a mold which allows it to harden into the shape of your ring. Once its out of the oven-you'll see an unpolished and unset diamond version your engagement ring- kind of a rough image. So we usually skip showing this part to our clients or they’ll freak out. 
    Step 4: POLISH & SET- The ring gets polished which gives it a shiny, clean look. The small accent stones as well as center diamond are all set one by one. VOILA! You have an engagement ring! 
    This entire process is fun and exciting, we will be available to answer all your questions and ease your mind of any doubts or concerns you might have.

  • 5 Effortless Ways To Woo A Guy This Summer

    5 Effortless Ways To Woo A Guy This Summer


    Diamond Daughters is partnering with Michelle G. to get you the best advice from the love guru herself. What does it take to woo a guy and win him over this summer?

    It’s easy to say a curvaceous figure and a captivating smile, but those aren’t the only things men care about. If you really want to win a man over, there are other qualities and/or behaviors that’ll make him really “feel it” for you.


    Here is a list of five sure-fire ways that’ll win him over AND leave him wondering where you’ve been all his life J:

    1. Compliment Him

    There’s nothing wrong with stroking his ego a bit with a compliment. They’re powerful and will work wonders in wooing him over to you. Just one compliment can change his entire mood and put a little extra oomph in his step. Some examples of compliments that go over well:

    • “You are so good at___” Fill in the blank with something that you think he’s great at.  
    • “I think you’re a genius.” This is a great way to compliment his intelligence.

    Pay him a compliment and he will definitely pay attention to you!


    1. Accept Compliments

    You have full permission to acknowledge admiration from your guy. Don’t try to deflect, shrug off, or ignore praises that he gives you. Psychotherapist, Alyson Lanier says, “There’s an unspoken rule in our culture that women are supposed to be modest”. 

    This is why some women don’t want to accept compliments for fear they will look like they’re bragging.  But, a guy doesn’t want to get shot down when he gives you a compliment.  If he says you look amazing, allow him to give you that praise. Accept that he’s being genuine.


    1. Don’t Try To Change Him

     If something bothers you about a person, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can change it once you both are “comfortable”. This strategy has exploded in many women’s faces.

    Just imagine how you’d feel if a guy tried to change something about you. You’d probably be a basket of mixed emotions – annoyed, self-conscious, not to mention, provoked.  

    Poking around and trying to change things about him will make him feel the same way. If you’re going to be with him, don’t interfere with who he is.


    1. Be Confident

    Guys dig a woman who is confident in herself. It’s a timeless quality. With confidence, it doesn’t matter how you measures up to others because you can appreciate who you are. When a woman possesses this level of confidence, she has a certain poise, and charm that men find riveting.

    Also, women who are confident in themselves are less likely to belittle others (including their man).  In other words, she won’t spend her time trying to change him because she’s too busy enjoying him.


    1. Let Him Be a Gentlemen

    You’re independent and probably used to doing everything for yourself. But, if you’d give him a shot he might surprise you. Hang up the #bosslady hat for a moment and allow him to be a gentleman. 

    Slow down, follow his lead and leave the boss lady at home. There is a time and a place to be a #bosslady but during a date isn’t it.

    Wooing or winning a man over isn’t hard to do. Just make him feel respected and valued and he’s practically all yours!

  • Meet Ally Allen, Sahar and Ronit Behar of Diamond Daughters featured on SDVoyager!

    Meet Ally Allen, Sahar and Ronit Behar of Diamond Daughters featured on SDVoyager!

    Meet Ally Allen, Sahar and Ronit Behar of Diamond Daughters

    Today we’d like to introduce you to Ally Allen, Sahar and Ronit Behar.

    Ally and Sahar and Ronit, please share your story with us. 
    We’re two sisters, Sahar and Ally, and our mom, Ronit; together, we started a jewelry business. We have been in the diamond wholesale industry for many years, we learned this business inside out, and know the materials thoroughly, as much as we love the beauty in jewelry we all felt like something was missing. We realized what we enjoy most is being a part of peoples special moments. We love our diamonds, but we love people even more, and love to make them happy. Together, we packed up and left the wholesale world, and started our own brand- The Diamond Daughters. We started working from home, with lots of energy and motivation, which lead us quickly to opening an office in the Jewelers exchange building in Downtown San Diego. This office became our second home, we love meeting our clients here and providing them with a unique experience.

    Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
    Every new business faces some struggles. One of our struggles was marketing our business and what we offer. Social media has helped us a lot in promoting our services but it is an on-going challenge.

    Another struggle we faced is being 3 women with very different personalities. We love working together but the struggle is real! Just kidding, there are many times we disagree on certain things, but at the end of the day, we all share the same goals. Another struggle is that we fight about who gets to wear our new jewelry pieces, like we said, the struggle is real.

    Please tell us about Diamond Daughters.
    We all agreed on our vision for DD.

    First, we want to remind everyone that jewelry is love. Its given love from mothers to daughters, from husbands to wives, from a groom to bride, from one generation to the next, and even for self-love. Thats the most important thing to us, bringing love back to jewelry.

    Second, anyone can afford jewelry! Our wholesale background provides us with many connections that allow us to work with any budget. We strive to make our jewelry with high-quality materials and the best prices possible so ANYONE can wear a Diamond Daughters piece.

    Third, we love to make dreams come true. We can make any jewelry vision come to life, anything from dreamy fairy wings to a classic diamond solitaire ring. We’re fascinated with recreating old pieces into something new and modern. One of our specialties is repurposing old jewelry with sentimental value and turning into something you love and want to wear. Same old materials with new life!

    Last but not least – engagement rings. We love our Diamond Daughters Couples! The experience with us is unlike any other. With every couple we meet we feel connected and excited, doing what we do never get old!
    It’s always a party with the Diamond Daughters!

    If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
    Honestly, it’s been a crazy experience so far, but we wouldn’t change a thing. Everything that happened along the way was a learning experience and made us who we are, The Diamond Daughters!
