Let’s get personal!

We’ve had a flurry of requests for personalised pieces of late, and after Laura tweeted a picture of her gold D&L ring, the personalised rings have become one of our most popular items!

D&L ringOur customers love to create something that is really unique to them, and if it’s good enough for fashion stylist Laura Puddy from Cosmopolitan magazine (she has her very own L&N ring), then it’s good enough for us!

…a personalised ring on the way to its new owner

And the personalisation doesn’t stop at rings – we’ve got a whole selection of pieces that you can commission with a word or name of your choice – we’ve found that the personalised bracelets make brilliant bridesmaids gifts!

Dainty and feminine - these make great gifts!

Dainty and feminine, and perfect for layering with your other Laura Gravestock bracelets!

Why not get creative with your jewels and treat yourself (or if you’re feeling very generous, someone else!) to a completely individual piece of jewellery? We’re already thinking of several pieces we’d like to commission…

How do you wear yours?

How do you wear yours?! Here's how we like to wear ours...

How do you wear yours?! Here’s how we like to wear ours…

Stacker rings provide a good opportunity to be your own jewellery curator – show your personality by adding a ring with a little bit of cheekiness. We’ve been going crazy for the new Stacker range…piling as many on as our digits will allow. Once you start, you won’t be able to stop!

Don’t be afraid to put a few differing styles on your fingers – we’ve been teaming the Stacker range with the Struck collection and even our Promise cocktail ring for a bit of colour. We particularly love the ‘first knuckle ring’ grazing our index finger, what do you think?

We’ve displayed our rings on Laura’s beautiful purple Cambridge Batchel which we’re in love with right now.

Layered-Dainty-Rings

We’ve got a whole lotta love on our hands in this photo – the Written Heart ring & Heart Charm stacker ring are joined by the delicate Written Love ring and the Struck ring. We’ve also used a Stacker Band as a first knuckle ring, keeping the Written Star ring company.

We love the mix of gold and silver & the different looks we can create with a range of rings – don’t be afraid to mix it up a little!

Layered-Dainty-Rings-Typing

Now that Spring is officially here, it’s out with the old and in with the new – and what better way to update your collection of accessories than by filling your jewellery box with the daintily feminine Gem Stacker rings from our exciting new collection. Share them across several knuckles or wear a few on the same finger – the great thing is, it’s all up to you.

We think we’ve struck gold with this particular look – an electric Struck ring on the middle finger, a dainty Labradorite Gem Charm and Tiny Heart Charm ring on the ring finger and a Silver Written Heart ring on the pinkie.
