An elegantly uncomplicated tanzanite and diamond ring in18ct white gold; this barrel shaped tanzanite of wonderful blue and violet/purple hues, reminiscent of the depths of deep blue of the ocean shaded by the moonlit midnight sky, originates from only one specific place in the world. Tanzanite, discovered only as recently as 1967, is only found in a 4km strip of land near Mount Kilimanjaro, northern Tanzania. With only one known source to date, it is predicted that within the next 10 – 12 years no gem-quality tanzanite will be found, the supply is limited. Its geology is so unique that the chances of tanzanite occurring elsewhere in the world are highly unlikely. Because of this scarcity, fine tanzanite jewellery is extremely sought-after and valuable. Originally referred to as “blue zoisite”, Tiffany & Co. enthused about this new gemstone, renaming the stone after its country of origin, and first revealed it to the world in 1968

I have had several pieces designed by the lovely staff at Michael Platt in Wimbledon. The pieces have been much admired. My first visit was several years ago so when I wanted something designed and made with stones from other pieces of jewellery which were very sentimental I had absolutely no hesitation about bringing the project to the shop in Wimbledon. The staff are so helpful, warm, welcoming and informative. Great service and a delight to do business with. I have never been disappointed.
My wife and I purchased a lovely bespoke entwined engagement & wedding ring from Michael Platt, 28 years ago. We visited in February this year to enquire about an eternity ring. Jordan was inspirational and used diamonds from a family heirloom. The design full complemented and sits beautifully with the original rings. It was a very pleasurable experience and we are both delighted with the result. Fantastic to know they are still offering great service and bespoke design.
The service we have received here has been second to none.
We first came to the shop a few years ago and had my engagement ring designed and created. It really is incredible what they do. The design was perfect to me and my style and the final product exceeded our expectations. So much so we finally came back recently and had both wedding rings made. Thanks again to the members of staff at Michael Platt you really are a fabulous bunch and make dreams come true!
Brilliant personal service every step of the way. I wanted a diamond engagement ring and was able to easily discuss different stones and design options with Grace sending sketches back and forth. I decided on an emerald cut stone with a platinum ring. Communication was excellent and the ring delivered on time and discreetly to an agreed address. I proposed by Lake Windermere having hidden the ring in the sandwich tin. A beautiful ring - my partner loves it!
I have had two stunning pieces of jewellery made by Michael Platt. One is a beautifully intricate diamond pendant and the other a spectacular dress ring reusing my own stones that have a lot of sentimental value. I am thrilled with both pieces. Wayne listened carefully to all my (very detailed!) requirements and followed them to the letter. This is a highly skilled team with amazing attention to detail and wonderful service. I am an absolutely delighted customer!
