  • Meghan Markles Engagement Ring

    Megan Markles Engagement Ring and Other Royal Ring Inspirations

    The countdown has truly begun for the Royal Wedding.  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will walk down the aisle on May 19th.

    Meghan's ring and all the royal engagement rings have been the inspiration for brides all over the world and will be for years to come.  Here is our take on some of the Royal Engagement Rings.

    Meghan Markle

    Harry designed Meghan's engagement ring himself, (romantic) sourcing the main diamond from Botswana, while the two outside stones are diamonds that came from the personal collection of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.  Meghan's ring truly is one of kind.

    Fortunately for those of us who don't have that kind of royal budget, our Brilliant Trilogy Ring handset in Gold Vermeil is a similar choice of ring. Choosing the larger 3ct centre stone will create a more Meghan style of ring.

    Trilogy rings, which feature three stones, are very significant. Meant to symbolise the past, present, and future - or friendship, love, and fidelity, the rings are a meaningful way to show your dedication to your partner.

    Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge & Diana, Princess of Wales

    Originally bought by the Prince of Wales for Diana, this ring has an oval 12ct sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds. This ring is now worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, and the theory is that it was initially chosen for Diana because it matched her eyes.

  • The Royal Wedding | Everything we know so far!

    With one week to go, the  countdown is officially on to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s much-anticipated royal wedding on Saturday, May 19.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

    Last November, just one day after Prince Harry and Meghan's engagement was announced, the palace confirmed the first details about the wedding. In a break with royal tradition, which usually sees couples marry on a weekday, the wedding will be held on Saturday 19 May at noon.

    The Venue

    The service will begin at St George's Chapel at midday and will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd. David Conner. The Most Revd. and Rt Hon. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows.

    Prince Harry and his brother and best man the Duke of Cambridge are expected to arrive at the chapel's west steps at 11:45am.

    Their Families 

    Meghan's parent will be arriving in the UK this week. This will allow time for Prince Harry's family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before Saturday.

    "Both of the bride's parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George's Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion.

    In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother's family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day. " Royal.uk

    The Bridal Party

    Prince Harry will have his brother, Duke of Cambridge, as his best man.  It was confirmed by Kensington Palace that Markle will not have a maid of honor. Rather, all of her bridal attendants will be children. The Palace did not release names of the bridesmaids and pageboys yet, though they have confirmed that both Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have roles in the wedding.

    The Invitations

    The wedding invitations have been produced by Barnard & Westwood. The company has held a Royal Warrant for Printing & Bookbinding by Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen since 1985.

     

    The Guests

    Invitations have been posted to 600 lucky guests, with a select 200 close friends invited to an after party at Frogmore House, Windsor.

    As well as a dress code, guests have reportedly been sent meticulously detailed instructions for the big day. The seven pages of 'critical guidance', according to the Mail on Sunday, ban cameras and bulky bags, adding that guests will be asked to "surrender mobile telephones and any devices used for image capture".

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked instead for guests who wish to give gifts to donate to seven chosen charities to honour their big day.

    The Flowers

    Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen floral designer Philippa Craddockto create the church flowers for their wedding. Philippa will direct a team, including florists from St George's Chapel and Buckingham Palace, to create the displays at St George's Chapel and for St George's Hall.

    Philippa Craddock said: "I am excited and honoured to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure. The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun. The final designs will represent them as a couple, which I always aim to achieve in my work, with local sourcing, seasonality and sustainability being at the forefront."  Royal.uk

    A royal tradition we can expect to see followed is a sprig of myrtle in the bridal bouquet - a small white flower symbolising love.

     

    The Cake

    Claire Ptak, an American pastry chef who is based in London has been chosen to create a lemon elderflower wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan.

    The Photographer

    The couple announced their royal wedding photographer, revealing that the honour will go to Alexi Lubomirski - the photographer who took their official engagement portraits.

    A post shared by Alexi Lubomirski photo (@alexilubomirski) on

     

    The Dress

    According to the The Telegraph, "the London-based brand Ralph & Russo have steamed into the lead as the bookie's favourite, but Burberry, Erdem, Stella McCartney and Roland Mouret are still among the contenders.  Meghan Markle wore a Ralph & Russo gown for the couple's official engagement photos."

    The Suit

    "Prince Harry has two main options: He could be dressed in his military uniform, or he could be in morning dress, Britain's daytime formal dress code. And the influence of either of those two would have an impact on the whole affair—either more formal with the uniform, or less formal with morning dress." Esquire

    The Jewels

    We are huge fans of Meghan's style, she just doen't get it wrong, ever!  We do hope that she will be wearing a tiara!

    "Per her style in the past, it's likely Markle will not opt for anything bold–she typically prefers daintier pieces, stackable rings and (like her engagement ring) yellow gold. And given that Markle's dress remains a mystery, although we do have some speculations and suspicions, thoughts on what tiara she'll don for the day (if any) and which earrings she'll opt for run the gamut, from over-the-top and demure."  Harper Bazaar

    Exact details will only be confirmed when Meghan arrives at St George's Chapel on May 19th.

    The Beard

    Will he or won't he?  Will Prince Harry keep his beard for the wedding or will he shave it off? We will have to wait and see.

    According to the Express "The 33-year-old groom will be forced to make the decision amid fears it could cause problems on the big day if he wears his military uniform, according to historian Hugo Vickers.  And this is because Harry may not be able to wear his uniform to tie the knot to his American bride if he isn’t clean shaven.  If Harry opts to sport his whiskers at the Royal Wedding it is thought he will have to wear a suit instead."

    The Weather

    The Royal Wedding could take place on the hottest day of the year so far, according to the bookmaker Ladbrokes..  Though fine weather is predicted, the Met Office isn’t expecting the royal wedding day to be the hottest day of the year so far.

    The Carriage Ride

    At 1 pm, following the service, the couple will travel around Windsor in a horse-drawn carriage.  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will make a "short journey" through Windsor in an Ascot Landau carriage to allow the public to catch a glimpse of them after their wedding, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

    Can we go to Windsor on the day?

    Fans and well-wishers can, of course, go down to Windsor on the weekend of the royal wedding, but they will face airport-style security in the town. Metal barriers will be erected to prevent vehicle attacks while automatic number plate recognition technology will also be in place.

    Local businesses and visitors can also expect to see an increased police presence, with police officers, both armed and unarmed, search dogs, the mounted section, the roads policing unit and the National Police Air Service joining forces.  Hello Magazine

    Where to watch the Royal Wedding?

    Yes, you'll be able to catch all the action from your sofa. The wedding and procession will be televised live on networks around the world. A single pool camera will capture the nuptials so many channels will be able to broadcast it.  In the UK, the BBC, Sky News and ITV will cover the day with big-name presenters.

    The BBC has announced that a television licence will not be needed to watch the wedding, allowing communities to screen the event at street parties and gatherings.

  • Gemstone Shapes | Top 10 Shapes & Cuts

    Do you know your Asschers from your cushions? Your Princess from your Brilliant?

    Here we have put together details of 10 of the most popular gemstone & diamond shape.

    type of diamond cut and shape

    Which is your favourite?

    Round Brilliant Cut

    The most popular diamond shape is the round cut. Also called round brilliant cut, this cut has 58 facets and is usually considered the best cut for bringing out the brilliance in a gemstone.

    A round cut gem is usually used as a solitaire in a wedding or an engagement ring.

    Princess Cut

    The princess cut is the second most popular cut shape for gemstones, next to a round brilliant. The face-up shape of the princess cut is square or rectangular and the profile or side-on shape is similar to that of an inverted pyramid with four beveled sides.

    Gala Princess Earrings (Click the Image to shop)

     

    Emerald Cut

    The emerald cut gemstone has a square shape and tapered corners. Compared to the round cut, the emerald cut diamond has fewer facets, and so it has fewer surfaces that reflect light.

    Cecilia Emerald Pendant (Click the Image to shop)

     

     

     

    Asscher Cut

    The modern asscher cut gemstone is similar to a square emerald cut, usually with larger step facets, a higher crown, and a smaller table. This combination often produces more brilliance than the emerald cut.

    Ayla Asscher Ring (Click the Image to shop)

     

    Cushion Cut

    cushion cut is a square or rectangular shape with rounded corners that resemble a pillow.  Cushion cuts have large facets allowing for a greater separation of white light into spectral colours.

    Marquise Cut

    marquise cut gemstone is an elliptical shape with pointed ends, usually faceted in a brilliant cut to give it all kinds of gorgeous sparkle.

    Marguise Cut Diamond Shape

    Oval Cut

    The oval cut gemstone has an elegant and classic look and can look very flattering in a ring. It is a timeless choice that will never go out of style. An oval cut is often used as a centrepiece and combined with smaller stones on each side.

    Pear Cut

    The modified brilliant-cut pear shaped gemstone is a combination of a round and a marquise shape, with a tapered point on one end. Ideally, a pear shaped gem should possess excellent or very good symmetry.

    Classic Pear Solitaire Ring (Click the Image to shop)

     Heart Cut

    Like pear-shaped gemstones, heart-shaped rocks can be "fatter" or more elongated, and the sparkle and beauty of this shape are defined by the skill and precision of the cutter.

      Trilliant Cut

    trilliant cut, sometimes called a trillion or trillian, is a triangular type of gemstone cut. The cut has many variations. It may have curved or uncurved sides. The shape of the top surface, or table, also varies.
