Traditional Persian Wedding

We just got these beautiful pictures from Sareh and Ali's Wedding. This is a traditional Persian wedding with all the trimmings. An elaborate, detailed decor that is just so chic we had to share it with you. Thank you Sareh and Ali for sharing these pictures of your decadent event. The decor is called Sofreh-ye Aghd and is traditionally passed from mother to daughter (occasionally Son). The spread is made of luxurious fabrics, the mirror and two candelabras are symbols of light and fire (man & woman), decorated eggs symbolize fertility, and the couple should be facing the light symbolizing their bright future together. It sounds so interesting, we just love the symbolism.

The infamous 5 C's of a Diamond

Here are some helpful tips from an Exquisite Bride employee on what to consider when looking into your engagement ring.

Certification or Cost

It is crucial when choosing a diamond to review the diamond certificate, referred to by diamond grading laboratories as a grading report.


Diamonds are always measured in carat weight. One carat is the equivalent of 1/5 of a gram. Additionally, there are "100" points in a carat, so that a .50 "point" diamond would be described as a half-carat.


Almost every diamond will contain some blemishes, and inclusions formed during the course of its crystallization. The diamonds clarity grade refers to the visual impact of these characteristics or lack thereof, as viewed under 10X loupe magnification. There is a grading structure (GIA clarity grading scale) used to describe inclusions found within the diamond.


The "color" of a diamond refers to the presence or absence of inherent coloration in a white diamond. The whiter the diamond is the greater its value since a colorless diamond will allow increased light to pass through it and will consequently emit a greater amount of fire and brilliance.


Cut is the most misunderstood and underestimated "C" of the five "C's". Cut is properly referred to as the "make" or quality of the way the diamond has been crafted. "Cut", should never be confused with the "shape" of the diamond. The cut of the diamond is the only "C" that is entirely manipulated by the diamond cutter, and will determine the beauty and value of the diamond.
