Dale and Bernadette


After a long and perfect relationship and two beautiful children, Dale decided that he wanted to ask Bernadette to marry him.

He came in to see our designer Beth, with a really clear idea of what he wanted.


Together they designed a cluster design with a large diamond in the centre surrounded by smaller diamonds, and diamonds set along both shoulders.

Beth then went away and ordered a variety of centre diamonds for Dale to choose from. When he came back in it was an easy choice. He chose the biggest and best quality diamond as he wanted the absolute best for Bernadette.


As the diamonds in the shoulders are ‘micro claw set’, the only choice for the metal was platinum as it is much stronger and harder wearing than gold. Our manufacturing team built the mount around the amazing centre stone and set the diamonds in perfectly.


Dale was over the moon when he collected the ring. It was exactly what he had pictured when he thought about asking the love of his life to marry him.

And clearly the sentiment was shared, as she said Yes!

Working with Dale was an absolute pleasure. It was actually the first engagement ring commission I had ever done alone, and he couldn’t have been more decisive and encouraging. Adding this ring to my portfolio is an honour.
