Beyond the “four C’s” of diamond shopping, this Shah & Shah Jewelers event, which will be offered both as an in-store-by-appointment party and an online Instagram Live experience, will include a 20-minute presentation followed by a Q&A session, plus try-ons and refreshments in-store. The idea is to break through the most intimidating aspects of ring shopping with a “style-centric learning experience,” which will include such topics as how to transform an heirloom piece into a new design, deciding between real and lab-grown diamonds, colored gemstones vs. diamonds, matching your wedding band to your engagement ring, stacking bands, and navigating popular design aesthetics. Engagement 202 is available in-store by appointment, and for your remote viewing pleasure via Instagram Live (@shahandshahjewelers) on June 14 at noon. 1001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 1225; 202-223-6001.

THE LONG-LIVED APPEAL OF SKULL JEWELRY
Beloved by rockers and history buffs alike, skull jewelry has stayed relevant across centuries.
Edgy? Morbid? Timeless? Depending on your point of view, any of these adjectives could be used to describe jewelry featuring skulls. For the historically inclined, skulls are a popular symbol in memento mori jewelry, a design style dating back to the 16th century intended to remind wearers that one day they will die. In other words, it was a message to the God-fearing masses that you better live right or face the consequences later.
