Martin Flyer's metals

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 7:20:00 AM in Martin Flyer (16)

Martin Flyer offers three main lines of fine jewelry: bridal, classic diamond, and fashion. Across these lines, Martin Flyer uses three precious metal groups to forge your dream ring, each one representing a symbolic meaning and unique feature. Martin Flyer uses gold either 14k or 18k, the former being 58.5% pure and the latter 75% pure. It can be yellow, rose, white, or pink gold. On the other hand, the signature jewelry also uses platinum as the most secure and durable setting for its pieces. Martin Flyer uses 95% platinum with 5% cobalt for added strength. The metal is naturally white and won't fade over time. Another metal used by Martin Flyer, while technically part of platinum family, is palladium. It's more precious than gold, but more affordable than platinum.
Martin Flyer is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.

Difference between man’s and woman’s brains

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 10:40:00 AM in Martin Flyer (16)

As with many things, men and women look at jewelry differently. When a man look at Martin Flyer for example, he thinks of the price and the wealth it projects. A woman looking at the same exact piece thinks of its beauty, fascinated by the diamond’s craftsmanship. The disparity between how men and women look at things has its roots on social biases. Men are trained to be providers, hunters, power brokers, while women are made to believe they need to attract the best man to raise a family; hence, the beauty perspective. For a man, luxury jewelry is a symbol of power and sophistication that reinforces his social stature. On the other hand, a woman sees it as a tool to adorn her, to make her more attractive, to attract attention.

Hundred Years of Solitude…Together

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 3:00:00 AM in Martin Flyer (16)

That lady you’re marrying? She’s sensual, sexy, had skin as soft as snow, and she got all the qualities a man desires. That man in front of you on wedding day? He stands proud and confident. Has a solid career that lends to your relationship a secure future. He’s caring while free of cares. It’s the perfect match…for the next five years or so, maybe. Over the course of your marriage, her pretty skin will sag replaced by fats, her beauty but a memory. He, too, will feel the pain of growing old, perhaps his career will hit a snag, or his demeanor challenged by daily mortgage and bills. But despite all of these, they will still be wearing their Martin Flyer FlyerFit wedding rings, a symbol of unwavering love.

The True value of diamond rings

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 PM in Martin Flyer (16)

A Martin Flyer diamond ring is sophisticated, engaging and truly a work of art. The details are cunningly executed, producing one of the most brilliant diamond settings in the industry. Its signature FlyerFit is a hit among high-fliers and celebrity clients who demand no less than the most impressive diamond rings around. But sometimes it’s not always the craftsmanship or the masterful cutting and setting that makes a diamond ring valuable. When Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, married Princess Catherine “Kate” Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, he gave her a ring that costs around $137,200. It’s not much compared to other celebrity wedding rings that cost in millions, but William’s ring is priceless for one reason: it’s her mother’s wedding ring, the one the late Princess Diana wore when she got married to royalty.

Right Engagement

Posted by Shreve & Co. at 12:00:00 AM in Martin Flyer (16)

Do you know that engagement rings may vary in designs as the climate today has degrees of temperament in a day, but the rings ascribe to certain universally regarded styles that set them in recognizable categories? Martin Flyer, a diamond jewelry signature, lets some pressure off your head when choosing the right ring with these five classifications and their meaning:

Solitaire. A single gemstone at the center. Classy, timeless, confident. Perhaps like your unconditional and everlasting love?
Three-stone. A center gemstone is sandwiched by two smaller stones. It is showier than a single-stone, much like a rooster dancing and ruffling his long feathers around to impress the hens, or in your case, hopefully, a hen.
Channel. The diamonds are set in one flowing channel with no metal in between them. Clean, elegant but sturdy, it reflects a modern look that fits an active lifestyle.
Shared prong. The diamond or diamonds are held above the metal with prongs, letting in more light from different angles as it glows out in varying colors. It reflects a vibrant take on life with your future partner.
Micro Pave. A diamond is surrounded by precisely set small diamonds and precious metal beads. It suggests traditional, even antiquity, the richness of its design giving a royal demeanor.
Martin Flyer has been designing diamond engagement rings for nearly sixty years now, offering a full range of categories to match your preference. It is known for the FlyerFit line, which fits the engagement ring and wedding band snuggly together.
