Regular readers of this blog will be in doubt as to how much I love jewellery. I’ve always been a fan of all things sparkly. While I have loads of costume jewellery which is fun to wear, nothing compares to diamonds. My most treasured pieces of jewellery are my engagement, wedding and eternity rings. Celebrating milestones with diamonds is a time-honoured tradition.
Then he threw us a curve ball. He did what no fiancé-to-be wants: he whipped out one that cost TWICE the budget.
When my husband and I went to look at engagement rings we (or rather he) had a strict budget. We went to a small independent jeweller who showed us a few rings within budget, all very nice. Then he threw us a curve ball. He did what no fiancé-to-be wants: he whipped out one that cost TWICE the budget. My eyes lit up and I was instantly beguiled. This was a dilemma. Husband suggested we go for lunch and think about it, so that’s what we did. After copious amounts of wine the budget became…shall we say, more malleable…and I got the ring 🙂
I had to wait another seven years before I got my eternity ring, a diamond and emerald band which we bought in Barbados last year.
A similar thing happened when we bought my wedding ring: I wanted one with diamonds, which obviously cost more than a plain one. We went for lunch to talk about it and…well you get the picture. I am eternally indebted to the various vineyards around the world. I had to wait another seven years before I got my eternity ring, a diamond and emerald band which we bought in Barbados last year. That was an all-inclusive holiday so I’m pretty sure wine was involved in that purchase too.
So now I have my three lovely rings I’m thinking I could add to my diamond collection with a tennis bracelet or pendant. Diamond Treats offers a wide range of fine jewellery (not just diamonds) of a very high quality. They have a London store where you can go to view an item before purchasing. This 9k white gold bracelet would add a touch of understated chic to any outfit. It’s set with 0.50ct diamonds but the unique design gives the bracelet the look of a 4.00ct diamond bracelet. Santa, if you’re listening, I’ve been a very good girl 😉
An alternative to the classic tennis bracelet is a diamond set bangle. This one is chanel set with 0.40ct of diamonds. The bangle is shaped to fit comfortably around the wrist with an opening hinge and lock system meaning it will fit most wrist sizes and be secure while you wear it.
I adore this pear shaped diamond cluster pendant, which hangs from a line of vertical diamonds set into the bail. I could imagine this worn with a beautiful silk shirt for a timelessly elegant combination. It would make a wonderful Christmas, birthday or anniversary gift, something to treasure forever. Diamond Treats believe that “jewellery is that one gift that is truly everlasting; representing the precious milestones in our lives that we recall everytime we wear the gift we received.”
Of course, it’s perfectly acceptable to treat yourself to some fabulous jewels too. I wouldn’t hesitate in buying diamonds or any other gemstones for myself if the budget allowed. I rather fancy this emerald and diamond pendant to match my eternity ring.
If you’re looking for something special for the man in your life, there’s a wide range of cufflinks too.
Included with every piece of jewellery from Diamond Treats is:
- 3 Year Guarantee
- Diamond Certificate
- Free Insurance Valuation Certificate
- UK Hallmark – in accordance to UK regulations
