To Valentine’s Day or not to Valentine’s Day… That is the Question

February 7, 2018

Hands up all those who didn’t realise Valentine’s Day is next week? Now this is a very divided topic for most people. For established couples, you know if you are or are not a Valentine’s Day couple, you’ve been through a few years you know the drill. You either dismiss the day as a commercial holiday and know that your partner will love you regardless of what you do or don’t do on ‘V’ day. Or you know that it is a very important day to your partner (they’re a romantic after all) and you’ve bought the chocolates and ordered all those red roses.

But spare a thought for those poor newly formed couples! The headaches, the questions! ‘Are we a Valentine’s Day couple?’ ‘Do we ignore Valentine’s Day?’ ‘I mean it’s a commercial holiday right?’ What if I don’t do anything and then it’s all over? Lets face it, no one wants to ask their partner outright: ‘What do you think about Valentine’s Day?’ We all just try and look for the signs or ask those subtle questions and try to determine the right course of action.

Now the truth is I don’t know the answer to this Valentines dilemma. But I can tell you this, no one is going to get upset with you if you want to give them a token of your affection and love. It as we all know doesn’t have to be large or expensive, which is why Chocolates and Roses are such favourites at this time of year. Now we at Rivers Jewellers sell jewellery, so of course we recommend if you are going to display your affection and love on Valentines day then you can’t go past jewellery.

Why? Because it’s something you can personalise, it’s something tangible and it is something that can be treasured for much longer than one day, a lifetime. It is perhaps the most perfect gift choice for Valentines day. Not that we are biased at all. So if you are in search of that perfect gift then we have a lovely selection for you.

Radiant Cut Diamonds

March 31, 2016

Every man and his dog has heard about round brilliant cut diamonds, and just about everybody else has heard of princess cut diamonds.

But are you aware that there are so many other cuts out there? Beautiful, Dramatic and Elegant Cuts!

One such cut deserving of more attention is the Radiant Cut.

The allure of this cut is second to none. Just look at that picture, it’s like an entire galaxy has been entrapped in one brilliant rock! Imagine that rock glimmering away on your finger.

With the Radiant Cut, you get the best of both worlds, you get the classic elegance of the emerald cut but with the pizzazz of the brilliant cuts.

Now no one wants their diamond ring to be passé so the round brilliant and princess cut diamonds have reigned supreme for many years.

You needn’t fear however, your choice of a fancy cut diamond isn’t a sign that your ring will one day be out of style.

Remember a diamond is forever! No one ever said a round brilliant cut diamond is forever.

Your choice of a fancy cut diamond is rather a symbol of who you are, a luminary, not a conformist.

So if you’re after a diamond that isn’t cliché then you’ll want to check out a Radiant Cut Diamond!

You’ll never regret your choice!
