Love, Romance and Marriage

Let Specialist Jeweller, Michael Platt, guide you at this magical time

Is this the right time to make it happen for you and your partner? Only YOU can know the true answer, but……if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance YES is the right answer!



Proposing marriage to the person you love could be a most cherished,  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 chosen time and place, is symbolised by that one important question and …… ….the box, containing a beautiful enduring Engagement Ring.    Feeling a little nervous about the detail? Let Goldsmith & Jeweller, Michael Platt be of assistance.

Where to start when it comes to the ring: gemstone or diamond? and what shape? modern or traditional? single or multi stones? simple or intricate? gold or platinum?

SO many decisions to make.

Michael Platt, specialist jeweller in Wimbledon Village, know selecting the perfect engagement ring is an exciting but, possibly, daunting experience. With years of knowledge, they readily guide customers through the maze of information. Firstly set yourself a realistic budget, be comfortable about what is affordable. Take note of a partner’s style and current jewellery.  The team at Michael Platt will show a range of Engagement Rings, outlining all facts that affect the price.  Michael Platt love being involved in a surprise proposal, and listen carefully to customers’ suggestions to ensure that the very best choices are made and excellent value achieved in finding the ideal ring.

The usual choice for the setting is either gold or platinum. White gold and platinum, when new, look identical, but will wear very differently. Gold rings will wear down over time and usually need more maintenance whilst platinum is stronger, more durable but usually commands a higher price. Setting the wedding date may not be a priority at this stage 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 on the hand. Wedding rings, whether plain, fancy or diamond set, should complement the engagement ring and not overwhelm.

An inherited gemstone or diamond can be transformed into a wonderful new engagement ring.  If the setting is dated or worn or isn’t exactly what’s required, Michael Platt specialise in Bespoke Jewellery, made onsite in their Workshop. An in-house designer and working Master Goldsmith will be hands on in designing and making the ring. The team take customers through the steps of the Bespoke Jewellery Process. Commissioning an exclusive unique 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.
