What are the latest trends? The most popular with the men is the classic platinum comfort fit wedding ring with a textured finish for that understated contemporary look. The ladies seem to be going more and more for a fitted diamond set band again in platinum.
What are the key things client should consider? Metal choice – It’s important to go with the same precious metal as your engagement ring. For example a harder wearing platinum wedding ring sat next to a softer 18ct white gold engagement ring would over time wear away the setting faster. Diamonds – If you go with diamond in your wedding ring be sure not to overpower the predominant diamond in your engagement ring, balance is all important.
What’s been the most unusual request? Well it’s not really wedding related but we had to make a pair of earrings set with a pair of baby’s teeth!
