Never mind the price, feel the value

Never mind the price, feel the value

When it comes to one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make, it’s less about price and more about value. Listen, there are plenty of places to buy an engagement ring for not a lot of money. You’ll find them on every High Street and, if you really don’t care about the quality, they litter the internet like confetti. Buying a cheap engagement ring is not difficult. Buying one that represents great value is another matter entirely. Let me illustrate for you. When you buy a house, do y...

Proposing? The biggest surprise might be that she doesn’t like the ring!

Proposing? The biggest surprise might be that she doesn’t like the ring!

If you’re thinking of proposing, I’ve got news for you: when it comes to choosing the ring, you’re in way over your head. I know, I know. It’s contentious and I’m not usually given to making sweeping statements, but there’s no getting away from it: the groom-in-waiting is usually the least qualified person to take on the job of picking out one of only two things she’ll (hopefully) wear for the rest of her life. Oh yes, you think you’re qualified for the job. Of course you think you’re qualified ...

Add a bit of sparkle to your stocking this Christmas

Add a bit of sparkle to your stocking this Christmas

Last week I was lamenting the disposable nature of Christmas and the fact that the gifts we seem to be coerced by clever advertising to buy tend to have a very short shelf life before they go out of fashion. I made the point that in giving the gift of diamonds – whether as a ring, a timepiece or earrings – you were buying something completely unique that would always be in vogue. And, of course, it would also have the added benefit of being a solid investment as diamonds tend to increase in valu...

Make her Christmas with a diamond this year!

Make her Christmas with a diamond this year!

It occurred to me recently that we live in an almost completely disposable society. From razors to contact lenses, Big Macs to nappies and cupcake wrappers to the latest iPhone or iPad which will be virtually obsolete the moment it’s out of the box, we live in a world where the things we buy are designed to be thrown away almost immediately. Christmas is a shining example of temporary fulfilment. Every year we buy presents for our nearest and dearest – perhaps from a list, perhaps not – and I’m ...

Who gets the diamond engagement rings in a divorce?

Who gets the diamond engagement rings in a divorce?

It doesn’t matter how you feel about your marriage or relationship with a long-term partner, divorce is rough on everyone involved in the process of separating. You may have simply drifted apart, you may be fighting like cat and dog, but the fact is, you once loved each other fiercely enough to want to commit to each other regardless of what life threw at you. Emotionally, giving up your wedding ring or engagement ring – or both – can often, simultaneously, be the hardest and easiest thing to do...

Your relationship is bespoke and her engagement ring should be, too

Your relationship is bespoke and her engagement ring should be, too

It’s a little-known fact amongst women, but the hardest part of any engagement is the proposal. No, really. I’m not trying to be controversial for the sake of being controversial. It’s just the truth. Most women simply have no concept of the level of anxiety, worry and pressure that men feel when they’re about to pop the question. Now, that’s not because women are in any way unfeeling or lack empathy. In many cases, the woman has been waiting, sometimes quite impatiently, to be asked the questio...

Your wedding and engagement rings should be perfect partners too

Your wedding and engagement rings should be perfect partners too

The wedding day. A riot of colour that sweeps and swirls, always moving and always changing; of polite laughter that will edge steadily and unstoppably into raucousness as the hours pass; of blossom and confetti amid smiling faces. It’s a perfect day for two perfect people, the start of what you fiercely hope will be a perfect life as perfect partners. And just as you and your partner personify the unification of a perfect match, so the rings on her finger ought to reflect that perfection, too. ...

The real reason why diamonds are forever

The real reason why diamonds are forever

Felix Leiter: “I give up. I know the diamonds are in the body, but where?” James Bond: “Alimentary, Dr Leiter …” Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I’m a huge fan of James Bond. The quote above, which I love despite the punchline's cheesy whiff, is from the film Diamonds Are Forever. Though not the best in the series, in Mr Witt and Mr Kidd it boasts two of the best characters to grace the franchise, possibly the most famous characters to be played by uncredited actors (Bambi and Thum...

Your 10-step guide to buying the perfect diamond engagement ring

Your 10-step guide to buying the perfect diamond engagement ring

On any given day, there are hundreds of thousands of diamond engagement rings for sale across 5,000 UK jewellery businesses. And of those, there are maybe a handful that are fit to grace the finger of the person you plan to spend the rest of your life with. It’s entirely possible that of those, only one will be perfect. Your job is to find it. That’s a pretty daunting quest: you don’t know where the perfect ring is and, more importantly, you don’t know where to start looking for it. In this rega...
