Through the doors of the London boutique you’ll discover a highly experienced team dedicated to supporting you at each stage in your journey. Every decision is easier, when you have a designer who understands how jewellery works with modern women’s lives, an expert gemmologist on hand to advise on the perfect stone and a studio where unique pieces can be personally crafted. Whether you’re visiting in person or remotely, you’re guaranteed an informed, thoughtful and prompt service.
Whether browsing the House collection of fine engagement rings or commissioning a bespoke creation, a personal touch can be added to the ring of your choice. Within its band you’ll discover the House’s signature small sapphire, to bring ‘something blue’ to the occasion. To this you can add an engraved inscription, known only to you and your fiancée. Alternatively you may choose to be guided through the bespoke process and select the style, stone and setting of a ring as unique as your love, then see your final design painted in watercolour.
If surprise is part of your plan, it helps to know the ring can be changed if your fiancée has dreamt of a different stone or design. With the wide House collection of fine engagement rings and a bespoke design studio at your service, you can return after the proposal to decide on the perfect ring together. On your visit, you’ll be invited to explore the design process, gaining a greater appreciation of the details that lie behind your diamond engagement ring.
On collecting the ring your names will be entered in the House ledger. This extraordinary archive is a record of centuries of royal bridal commissions. Many of these jewels are now as famous as their wearers – from Queen Victoria’s wedding brooch to the Duchess of Cambridge’s sapphire engagement ring. Still held in the vaults at Albemarle Street, the ledger presents a unique opportunity to make your story the latest chapter in a richly regal heritage.
After your proposal we invite you to visit the House with your fiancée, choose your wedding bands and explore the famous commissions that inform the design of our fine engagement rings. Over afternoon tea, you’ll hear stories of a past rich in royal creations, taking a private tour of the House workshop and discovering the secrets of the Queen Mary Room. A private consultation with our designers will give you a unique insight into the skills and traditions of the world’s longest serving jeweller.
The day of an engagement proposal is one that will be remembered in detail, and at its heart is the engagement ring, a symbol of the feelings you have for each other and the commitment you will make. No wonder that choosing an engagement ring can be daunting. Yet there are many ways to make it a straightforward and even enjoyable experience.
