I’ve always loved jewellery. Like a magpie I am instinctively attracted and drawn to shiny and sparkly things. Beautifully crafted pieces of jewellery made with precious metals, stunning diamonds, and natural gemstones are heaven to me.
The most precious piece of jewellery I own is my engagement ring. It may not be the most expensive piece of jewellery I own or the most lavish but the meaning behind it and the love surrounding it makes it dearly precious and important to me. Unfortunately after awhile of proudly wearing it on my finger one day I noticed that one of the diamonds were sadly missing.
As my engagement ring lost a diamond Lee has always said he would love to buy me a new one. Knowing my love of antique and vintage jewellery he wants to get a vintage engagement ring for me.
Whilst I love all jewellery and admire all styles new and old, my heart is always drawn to antique and vintage jewellery. I love the uniqueness of vintage jewellery and that they all have their own special history.
