How To Go About Resetting A Stone Or Family Diamond

When considering resetting a family heirloom I always ask the client to first consider how the family or they may feel about the change long term. The last thing you would want is to regret the decision later. Sometimes pieces are beyond repair so it makes perfect sense to remodel into something new. Styles change over time so you may also want to modernise it. I often start the design process by asking about your style, what you like (often not even jewellery related, it may be clothing, home d...

Did You Know That You Can Give Your Wedding Signage a Second Life?

Truth be told, sadly not too many of the decor options you’ll use at your wedding will [realistically] be used again… Things that say anything about ‘cocktail hour’ or ‘Mr. & Mrs,’ anything that specifically references your wedding date, unless it’s used solely for sentimental purposes, it’s hard to find a place that makes sense for displaying the memories. And we’re all for reminiscing, because who hasn’t spent a few hours or more a week looking at old wedding photos and remembering that best d...

How to Keep the Sparkle in Your Jewellery at Home

What We Lost When We Lost Our Wedding

When my partner proposed in 2018, I knew instantly that our wedding would take place on October 10, 2020.

Do I Have to Propose With a Ring?

Image: Elk & Fir via Relaxed Beach Engagement at Yeppoon Weddings are steeped in tradition. Some of these traditions we just follow blindly without even realising how silly they might be (something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… anyone?) and others, well, others we tend to err more on the side of the old adage: rules are meant to be broken. This month, I’d like to talk about engagement rings, or more accurately, a lack thereof. Continue reading Do I Have to Propose With ...
