Save money by making a new piece of jewellery from your old treasured pieces

Save money by making a new piece of jewellery from your old treasured pieces

We're all guilty of the same thing. Every now and then we all buy something new to replace an old favourite. That old piece gets left aside and hardly ever worn again. There's nothing wrong with that. However, I do believe that if you have a piece of jewellery, then you should wear what you have and enjoy it. By now you've realised that I'm referring to your old pieces of jewellery. Items that have been placed in your trinket box and sadly haven't seen the light of day for a considerable amount ...

Jewellery Insurance Explained –  The recent raid on the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit has highlighted the need for up-to-date insurance policies – and valuations

Jewellery Insurance Explained – The recent raid on the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit has highlighted the need for up-to-date insurance policies – and valuations

Most people will have heard by now of what may be the largest jewellery heist of the modern era. I am of course referring to the robbery of the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit during April 2015’s Easter weekend. The fact that the thieves have got away (for now) with hundreds of millions of pounds worth of diamonds, gold and jewellery, should have jewellery-lovers asking themselves some serious questions. Namely: Is my jewellery adequately covered? Is my jewellery valuation up to date? When did I last...

Hatton Garden – where the streets are lined with diamonds

Hatton Garden – where the streets are lined with diamonds

"What's Hatton Garden?" I've heard that plenty of times over the years and it still surprises me. I'm not sure exactly why that is. Perhaps it's because I've been walking the streets around here for over twenty four years or maybe it's because I've just come to know it as my second home and I expect others to know it as well as I do, that it still surprises me. It's like asking someone what Covent Garden is or even Camden Town. We both know they are synonymous for their own happenings and it's t...

Tips on what you can do with your diamond ring once a break up has occurred

Tips on what you can do with your diamond ring once a break up has occurred

It's a reflection of the world we live in and a fact of life today. More and more people are going through a break up and ultimately a divorce. One of the main bones of contention is, and always will be, the diamond engagement ring. And it always will be because it is the one item which has the most value, in monetary terms and emotional terms. Let's put that behind us for the moment, there is a precedence set within the courts in the UK and the USA that I know about, which states that if the br...

There is a difference between a diamond report and a valuation, let me explain

There is a difference between a diamond report and a valuation, let me explain

It's normally the same with new clients who have never purchased an expensive diamond piece before, on this occasion I'm referring to an engagement ring. For most it's probably the third largest purchase they are likely to make behind a car and a home. A lot of research and due diligence has been done by the couple and they are parting with a substantial amount of money on a lovely diamond engagement ring. We've been through the process and the happy couple have chosen a lovely diamond for a sol...

What happens to my jewellery during a divorce?

What happens to my jewellery during a divorce?

It’s tough enough that a chapter in your life is ending and things will be getting worse before they get better. Speaking as someone who has been through this, I can assure you it does get better. The day the lady in the relationship decides to stop wearing her wedding and engagement ring is a landmark moment and what happens now and what you are meant to do with your jewellery, is something that comes up time and time again. However, what you decide has no bearing on what must be done in the ey...

I hate my engagement ring, what now?

I hate my engagement ring, what now?

What!!! You hate your engagement ring? Well I have news for you if this is the case you are not alone. Statistics show, and I don’t have any to hand, that not everyone loves their engagement ring once they set eyes on it. The reason for this is simple and it’s probably to do with the fact that he chose it based on what he thought you’d like. Or worse still, and this is true, he asked your best friend. Now if you’re wondering why you wouldn’t like it after your best friend was consulted, then le...
