THE BLUSH COLLECTION – ENGAGEMENT RINGS

A CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC

Made by Diamond by Appointment to their exacting standards, each one-of-a-kind ring in The Blush Collection is designed to enhance the carefully chosen, certificated diamond that sits at its heart.

Diamonds for the Blush Collection are carefully chosen for their faint pastel tones, often overlooked due to their lower colour grades despite their high clarities and carat weights. To accentuate each diamond’s natural beauty, a collar of 18ct Rose or Yellow Gold gently surrounds it. These warm tones enhance the colour of the stones beautifully and add a contemporary edge, with bi-metal jewellery becoming increasingly popular among both royals and celebrities.

As with all Diamond by Appointment engagement rings, each one is designed to sit neatly against the matching wedding rings and eternity bands on offer. The scallop-set diamond surround and shoulders are set in Platinum using a handcrafted technique, which provides a precise amount of metal to safely secure the stone with an unrivalled polish and finish. This modern take of a classic cluster ring is truly stunning.

VALUE FOR MONEY

As with all the 5C’s (cut, colour, clarity, carat and certificate), a diamond’s colour can have a significant impact on the price of a diamond. By choosing a Blush Ring, you can often achieve a real wow-factor for a fraction of the price that a ring with a D colour centre stone would command.

BESPOKE JEWELLERY, MADE IN YORKSHIRE

Did you know that Phillip Stoner The Jeweller has its own workshop on-site in Victoria Leeds where we produce Bespoke Jewellery?⠀

If you spot something in our window or online that you love but it’s not perfect, ask us whether we can make it bigger, smaller, in a different metal or to suit a specific budget. The answer is usually yes! ⠀

p.s. It’s a myth that creating a bespoke piece of jewellery costs more than buying something from the window. The price is often dictated by the centre stone, whether it’s a diamond or coloured stone and how much you want to spend is up to you.

INTRODUCING AVA – ART DECO JEWELLERY REIMAGINED

Our Phillip Stoner boutiques have each been given an Art Deco inspired makeover to echo our incredible new jewellery collection which launches this Autumn.

For the past few months we’ve been busy behind the scenes developing a new range of Art Deco inspired diamond jewellery and rings, designed in-house and available exclusively at our stores in Leeds and Manchester.

The Ava Collection celebrates the simple lines and sculptural detail that epitomised jewellery from the Art Deco era and Arts & Crafts movement. Reimagined for a contemporary audience, each diamond is held in place securely by simple bar settings, while intricate detailing pays homage to iconic buildings of the Art Deco era, such as the the Chrysler Building in New York. The epitome of elegant simplicity.

Earrings, pendants and rings are arriving soon so keep checking back for more details.

A FATHER’S DAY GIFT FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING

It’s Father’s Day on Sunday 18th June 2017 and while we all want to celebrate our Fathers and shower them with gifts to show our appreciation, general consensus is that Dads are hard to buy for.

If you ask them what they’d like, they typically “don’t need or want anything”. Surprises are out of the question. If Dads do need or want something they tend to buy it themselves there and then. That or it belongs on a list named ‘If I won the Lottery…’

At Phillip Stoner, we think we’ve found the perfect thing. A Father’s Day gift that will last a lifetime, can be personal without being mushy and is bound to be loved by any dapper Dad.

Introducing Cufflinks by Deakin & Francis….

Make it Personal
From the classic to the quirky, there is a design for every gentleman. A pair of Bee cufflinks for a proud Mancunian,  Rugby Balls for a sports enthusiast or Range Rovers for those who enjoy the countryside. For something more subtle there are plain silver disc cufflinks that can be engraved with a name, date or family crest. Or patterned discs, which are hand painted in enamel and could represent the colours of a favourite sports team or school house.

Deakin & Francis Cufflinks. Father's Day Gifts at Phillip Stoner The Jeweller

All items are made from either Sterling Silver or 9ct or 18ct Gold and feature quality gemstones. A true investment piece, Deakin & Francis Cufflinks are often passed down through several generations of families.

Family Matters
Deakin & Francis was founded in 1786 and is now owned by brothers James & Henry Deakin who are the seventh generation to manage the family business.

MARCH BIRTHSTONE: AQUAMARINE

Treat someone special to an Aquamarine Cocktail Ring from Ungar & Ungar‘s phenomenal Blue Jazz Collection. Vibrant Aquamarine centre stones are enhanced with a sprinkling of sapphires and diamonds in styles that capture the glamour of the Twenties.

The name “Aquamarine” is derived from Latin, aqua, meaning “water”, and marina, meaning “of the sea”. The serene colour of March’s Birthstone is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded, making them unconquerable and amiable.
