I’ve been a bit slow to keep up with the Olympics this time round, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. However I’m now catching up and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Paralympics this week. As a result I accidentally stumbled across something that made me genuinely really happy – the medals have been made with sustainability in mind! Continue reading
I can’t lie, I’m seriously pleased with this ring!
The hunt was on for the perfect stone – it had to be cushion cut and cornflower blue and not too big or too small. And of course it needed to be ethically sourced. Continue reading

It’s always nice to work with a stone that’s a little different for an engagement ring. Don’t get me wrong, I love working with diamonds, but variety keeps things interesting and I am lucky to have customers who choose alternative gemstones as well, in this case a beautiful rainbow moonstone (and a couple of diamonds thrown in for good measure!)
