Marilyn Monroe said it best. A kiss on the hand may well be Continental, but when it comes to being a girls best friend, diamonds rate very highly. That most beautiful of stones has it all when it comes to class, elegance and luxury, so when it comes to choosing a ring as important as an engagement ring, diamonds are always a choice that rate very highly – it’s a forever ring after all, one that signifies a lifetime commitment to the person you love.
Orla James are a jewellery company with a difference. Offering a wide range of engagement and wedding rings that are ‘made with love in the UK’, Orla James understand that when it comes to a wedding ring, you need to get a feel for the piece on your finger. With this in mind, they offer a unique sampling service which quite literally allows you to try before you buy. Each ring has the option of requesting a sample at the cost of £2 each, the samples are unhallmarked silver versions of rings, these can give you some idea of how the ring will look when it is actually sitting pride of place on your finger. I think this is an amazing and useful idea that will help you find exactly the right ring for you.
