Unclaimed Diamonds is proud to support the Sports and Mentoring Student Community. Sams Community is an exciting after-school program that offers tutoring, life skills workshops, health and fitness clinics, community service projects, and relationship building through mentoring. 

Letter from Samuel F. Grannum, Director - Sports and Mentoring Student Community.


Dear Mr. Sulby:

I just wanted to follow up with you to reiterate my thanks for your thoughtful donation to the Sports and Mentoring Student Community.

I’ve attached a few photos of our year. Additionally, I attached a letter from the two young men your donation directly sponsored this year. I wanted to wait to send you this letter because I wanted the students to share with you their feelings about their participation in the program so far this year. I wanted you to hear an authentic and personal account of their experience as opposed to simply receiving a letter of appreciation,

Personally, I was very encouraged to hear the words of their mother, Aja Sterling, as she also shared a few words for us both.

I am extremely thankful for your spirit in your donation. Your Facebook followers alone have helped us tremendously in raising awareness about our program. I did want to mention that we did not schedule a career day this season; My goal is to kick off the 2016-2017 season with a career day so that we can work on developing potential partnerships that could lead to apprenticeships, internships and career goals. I say all of this because I would like to have Corey Sullivan come and share his story with our students at that time.

May God continue to bless you for your kindness, Know that your gift will have a meaningful impact, not only on the lives of the students you directly sponsor, but the lives of all members of SAMS.

Thank you.

Sincerely,


Samuel F. Grannum, Director— Sports and Mentoring Student Community
An outreach program of the New Covenant Church of Philadelphia

Have you thought about sharing a symbol of your love with someone, but aren't sure how to go about it? Promise rings are a great way to share a future commitment with someone, whether that commitment is friendship or something more. Find out if a promise ring is right for you and your significant other!

                                                                       

  The symbolism of promise rings.

Promise rings serve as a physical way for you to share your love and commitment with someone. They serve as a way to say "I'm here to stay," and are appropriate for a significant other, your friend, or even a family member.

Note that promise rings are not always a sign of chastity. While a promise ring could serve as a promise to remain celibate, they don't have to. It all comes down to your personal intentions.

                        

  Sounds perfect, but who can I give a promise ring to?

Anyone can give a promise ring to another person! Contrary to popular belief, promise rings are not just for teenagers or people who plan to get engaged in the future. People of all ages and sexual orientations give promise rings as gifts.

Promise rings can even be exchanged between friends to symbolize the strength and closeness of a relationship. When you give the gift of a promise ring, you can make your intentions clear to whomever you're giving it to.

                                                                   

  Which finger do I wear a promise ring on?

  Many people choose to wear their promise rings on their left ring finger, like they would an engagement ring. It's really up to your personal preference - you can wear a promise ring on any finger or hand.

What style of promise ring should I choose?

Promise rings are available in a variety of styles. They can be simple and sophisticated or bright and bold. Just like engagement rings, choosing the style of a promise ring comes down to your vision and the personality of the person you're giving the promise ring to.

When it comes to buying an engagement ring, or any jewelry item many people often feel that by spending more, they are getting a higher quality diamond. This is not always the case! More often than not, the higher price tag only indicates the brand or a designer style they are paying for.

The notion of having to spend an unreasonable amount on jewelry (specifically engagement rings) puts many people who are cash strapped in quite a predicament, thinking they need to spend $5,000 when they can only afford to spend a few hundred.

Many consumers feel that they have little to no options when it comes to the purchase of big ticket items like jewelry, cars, and appliances. What's more, many retailers refuse customers with a little or no credit rating, limiting these customers options.

Layaway has been a popular solution for many shoppers. An item is placed on hold and paid off in small amounts, often taking many months. The problem with layaway is the lack of instant gratification. You can't take the item home until it is paid in full.

Looking for a great value for money engagement ring? Join Unclaimed Diamonds as we uncover why buying a flower top, micro bead or halo style engagement ring is great value for your money as compared to a traditional single stone engagement ring.

Traditional engagement ring styles include the solitaire, which features one single diamond. There is also the solitaire with side accents, which have a large diamond as the focal point that is surrounded by smaller accent diamonds. Three-stone rings are another traditional engagement ring option, which have three diamonds to symbolize your past, present and future.

While these styles are all beautiful, they don't always offer you the best value for your money. When compared to traditional engagement ring styles, Flower Top, Halo, Micro Pave and Invisible Set diamond rings are stunning options that are well worth the investment.

Micro Bead/Micro Pave

These rings are named for the way small diamonds are set onto the surface of the ring. This method is used to create stunning halo and flower top rings. Micro Pave rings are uniquely beautiful because you are creating an elaborate display of diamonds. Using smaller diamonds to surround the larger diamond in the ring wastes less space and boosts the shine of the ring! This design creates a diamond-encrusted look full of sparkling brilliance.

Halo Style Ring

A halo ring is classified as having any encompassing shape surrounding a center stone. Halos can be found in circular, oval, or square shapes that encapsulate and complement a diamond. You can find different varieties of halo rings, including single and double halo rings.

  • Single Halo - One row of diamonds surrounding and magnifying a central diamond. 
  • Double Halo - Two rows of diamonds surrounding and magnifying a central diamond.

The halo adds more width to the ring overall, making the center diamond look larger at a more affordable price point. In addition, the halo around the diamond enrich the color and the brightness of the central diamond.

Flower Top Ring

A specific micro bead styling, these stunning rings are similar in appearance to the halo style, with the small diamonds that surround the center diamond form a floral pattern. These rings are a stunning option that use of multiple diamonds to showcase your love and commitment.

Invisible Set Ring

In this type of setting the diamonds and/or gemstones are held in place by tiny grooves that are precision cut into the sides of the stones, whereby they snap into place very much like a puzzle.The diamonds used are mainly princess cut whereby we can use six or nine smaller diamonds to create the look of a much larger diamond.

Find the perfect engagement ring with the best value at its unclaimed price, only at Unclaimed Diamonds!

Buying an engagement ring is an exciting step in life, but it can also be quite stressful. The price of a designer engagement ring alone can be enough to break the bank, especially when you consider all of the other costs associated with a wedding.

High-end brand names own the market and control the prices of luxury items. Jewelry is no exception.. Many consumers make their purchases based solely on brand. In reality, jewelry retailers with widely known names can charge more for a piece of jewelry simply because of the name behind the diamond.

You don't need to buy a brand name engagement ring to impress the love of your life. Here's why:

  • If you like it, buy it! When you're buying designer, what you're really paying for is the name. These brands are marketed in such a way to attract as many people as possible to the allure of a name.  If you see a diamond ring that you like and it is one that you know your partner will love, buy it, regardless of who designed it.  

  • Diamonds are diamonds! There is no such thing as a designer diamond.  All things being equal the diamond in a ring from Tiffany’s is no better than an Unclaimed Diamond

Now let's put you to the test. Take a look at two similar engagement rings, a Neil Lane Designer Ring from Jared and a 1.75 tcw Women's Halo Diamond Engagement Ring from Unclaimed Diamonds....
