Proposal Stories: Claire & Dan

We spoke to happy customers Claire & Dan, who told us their incredibly romantic proposal story.  How did Dan propose? Dan and I met in May 2014 in Manchester and he proposed on the 25th September 2015. He hid the ring in a vintage 'Pride and Prejudice' book that was hanging in a heart shape that he had cut out. He hid the book on a shelf in the spare room so I had to hunt for 'something new'! It truly was a huge surprise to come home to on a Friday night after work!  When was the wedding? Our wedding day was July 25th, and was the most magical day. After going to a friend’s wedding in Greece, we always planned to get married abroad, and what better place than Santorini.

Understanding ring sizing

As we tell many of our clients, there is no exact science when it comes to ring sizing. Hands swell and shrink depending on many factors such as climate, weight fluctuation, exercise; the list goes on. The best option to accurately measure finger size is by being measured by a trained jeweller, who will have a full selection of sizing gauges, starting at Size A and go to Sizes Z1, Z2, Z3 onwards. At Steven Stone we use half sizes to get a more precise measurement, however not all jewellers offer this. There are many techniques to taking rings on and off. Many people use the very technically-termed ‘wiggle’ while others use the ‘twist’ approach. We have found one of the best methods …click for more

Which engagement ring trends are leading us into 2018?

It is helpful to be guided by trends, but unwise to be ruled by them.  However, researching trends is a good starting point when you begin the often intimidating process of buying an engagement ring.  Remember design trends can move quickly and have a limited shelf life, before they may come back round again in a number of years. An engagement ring will last a lifetime, so the most important factor to consider is whether it suits the personal taste of the owner. Trends in jewellery move at a slower pace to the fashion world, with a little research you will find the same influences reappearing with slight modifications. It's wise to be lead by your personal taste, lifestyle and obviousl…click for more

Minimalism vs. Maximalism

Do opposites attract? Minimalism has a firm clasp on the design industry, from fashion to interiors, extending as far as architecture. The movement sunk it's hipster claws in so hard that it has evolved into more of a mind-set than simply a design trend. Many of us have been challenged to question our choices, "Should I declutter more frequently?" or "Do I really need another one of these?" Surely this is a positive thing, saving us time, money and living within our means a little more. Adopting this mind set allows us to lead a simpler, more conscious lifestyle. So for this, we have minimalism to thank. To the unaware, it may seem boring, plain and basic. It's inevitable this movement will…click for more
