If you have were fortunate enough to have been given a gift from a loved one that may well have passed and it simply oozes with history and sentimental value. Your holding in your hands a piece of “your” history. But it may well be damaged, missing a diamond or just does not suit you, as a person. However you know it carries great worth due to the person leaving it to you, so what do you do?
In this day of technology and creativity, help is always on hand.
Just last week I had the pleasure of meeting a lady who presented a Emerald cut diamond wedding ring that she had been left and although the ring was very old and broken she wanted to have it re-made so that she could wear it on her wedding day, you have to admit that’s extremely touching and filled with love.
She went to her local jeweller but they quoted her an exorbitant amount, partly because they did not fancy doing the job and
Spring is in the air and so are the showers, the buds and the blossom on the trees.
After what seemed a very long winter, we set about the famous spring clean of our homes and if you are anything like me you will be amazed at what you will find in the draws and cupboards, things that you had completely forgotten about and more likely never used.
This year my array of finds have included, old remote control boxes for appliances that I no longer have, out of date beer bottles, and clothes that are no longer worn, gold tie pins, cufflinks and broken chains. Now all packed and ready for the Charity shops, and the remotes and the beer cans to the local dump. But the gold, well that’s a different matter unlike all your other finds they still have a value.
According to the Times, sales of luxury and premium goods continue to shine even during the economic down turn.
This was one of a number of findings picked up during a survey carried out by Bain.
In my opinion, one of the reasons for this is very clear and stares you in the face. When talking money and the climate today people are more cautious when they spend, leaving the consumer looking at that one special purchase that they will enjoy, create a feel good factor and above all be in the price range that suits.
This tends to go against the grain where multiple smaller items were once the trend which ultimately could cost them more than that one bespoke unique piece.
Another important factor is that clients want to feel important, cared for and offered an experience when purchasing which some of the luxury and premium brand retailers offer.
So back to the report, Bain continues to report that the very clients we are talking about and seek these services are in fact not those that would be ordinarily be described as rich.
As a personal jeweller I can relate to this report because many of my clients receive all of the above and more without paying the big brand prices.
Everything is an experience, it’s just which one do you choose, get in touch and sample the above and more. Get the feel good factor from the pocket to the jewellery.
Did you know about it ?
The concept behind the London Jewellery week is to promote the latest designs and designers in much the same way as the London fashion week, but the two are not treated in the same way.
The London Fashion week gets a huge amount of press coverage where as the London Jewellery week has seen it’s coverage fall each since it’s conception.
During the London Fashion week new designs and the latest colours are revealed and then people wait for the more affordable mainstream copies to appear in the everyday shops, this does not often happen in the jewellery trade.
Although of course the designer labels in both sectors will charge a hefty premium for their brand and work, jewellery is a different kettle of fish altogether to get to the final look there are many more permutations to take into consideration such as metals, and the stones used. As an example you could pick a purple stone that could be a precious amethyst or a crystal from a far the stones might look the same but there would be a huge difference in the price.
Precious jewellery is bought in the main from clients who are about to celebrate a special occasion, the market for people who just want to buy themselves something special is much smaller and Niche, mainly because of the price. With the introduction of 3D designing this has now evolved and that special design has now become affordable which is ground breaking but something that will not be heard loud this week which is a great shame.

It can be amazing reading into the lives of a celebrity or two, these celebs killed two birds with one stone by getting the wedding and baby planning started at the same time. Last month Natalie Portman, 29, and Benjamin Millepied, 33, announced they were engaged . . . and expecting. But the dancing duo, who met on the set of The Black Swan (2010), have not really set a new trend.
But David Law, London Jeweller comments “There is a special WOW factor to this popular combo, the joy of your wedding and all that comes with it and the special moment of the arrival of tiny feet.
So would it not be great to mark that special moment with a gift that will last a life time. My First Diamond is collection of jewellery where you can choose not only the design but also your own diamond allowing you to create your own unique gift even personalize it further with a special message, what a great way to start a new life”.
Come say hello and find out more, I would love to share the concept with you
I am Currently designing a three stone diamond engagement ring for a couple with an added WOW factor. I first met the Doctor from Oxford before Christmas who later came back with his fiancee to be who I have not met at this time works in the same hospital as a Doctor.
He brought me a printed picture from a e commerce site to view, the metal that I am working with is platinum as for the design I love to see diamonds and the art styled curves making this a very open creation offering the maximum sparkle the diamonds have to offer with beautiful curvature. This will not only feel good on the finger but will be very pleasing to the eye.
I will keep you updated on my progress and the final design concept
On the face of it the answer might well be yes until you dig a little deeper. Firstly the online store will bombard you with the information that they want you to know, they will write about the colour and the clarity might even mention a little about the symmetry and the polish.
But what does that all mean to you?
Buying a diamond on a certificate and the above information will totally confuse you and might actually mean you spending much more money than you need to.
I have having been selling diamonds for more than 30 year and I am still learning, yet it ceases to amaze me how by visiting a few web sites any one can become an expert. It is just not true, You need to sit with a personal jeweller who will be able to show you samples of different colours, clarity’s and sizes of stones then taking into account not only your budget but information about the person you are to present they will be able to help and advise you so that you can make a conformed choice.
A diamond is the most beautiful and romantic purchase that you will ever make it is not a commodity that should be bought on price.
Seek out your own personal jeweller and let them put romance and mystique back into this special purchase.
You might just save money as well
