Let specialist jeweller Michael Platt guide you throughout your magical time.
The holiday season offers two great opportunities for a romantic marriage proposal: Christmas and New Year. Is this the right time for you and your partner? After all the uncertainty of the past 18 months, only you can know the answer, but if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that yes is the right answer.
Proposing marriage to the person you love should be an unforgettable, romantic and significant moment: intimate and private, just the two of you, or perhaps very public, all singing and dancing. Each proposal, memorable for its time and place, is symbolised by that one important question and, of course, the box containing a beautiful and enduring engagement ring. Feeling rather nervous about which ring? Let goldsmith and jeweller Michael Platt assist.
Where to start? So many decisions: gemstone or diamond? What shape? Modern or traditional? Single or multi stone? Simple or intricate? Gold or platinum? So many choices to make.
Michael Platt in Wimbledon Village, knows that selecting the perfect engagement ring is an exciting but possibly daunting experience. They will readily guide customers through the maze of information.
Firstly, set yourself a realistic budget and be comfortable about what is affordable. Take note of your partner’s style and jewellery. The team at Michael Platt will present a range of engagement rings, outlining all factors that affect price and listening carefully to customers’ requirements to ensure that the very best choices are made, with excellent value in finding the ideal ring.
Setting the wedding date may not be an immediate priority, but some thought should be given to the wedding band to ensure it will fit well against the engagement ring and both look good together. Wedding rings, whether plain, fancy or diamond set, should complement the engagement ring and not overwhelm.
If a unique ring is desired, Michael Platt specialise in bespoke jewellery, made on-site in their workshop. They will be hands-on in designing and making the ring, sourcing diamonds and gemstones to suit all budgets. Sentimental or inherited gemstones or diamonds, passed down generations, can be transformed into a wonderful new engagement ring. The team takes customers through the bespoke jewellery process. Commissioning an exclusive engagement ring is an exciting and romantic journey that does not need to be complex or necessarily expensive.
However, if selecting a ring feels too risky or complicated, consider proposing with a loose gemstone or diamond. In a beautiful presentation box, it’s a very touching, thoughtful and romantic gesture followed by all the excitement of choosing exactly the right setting together, as a couple.
