Stylish Wedding and Engagement Rings at Fraser Hart!

Friday 17 April 2015

A few weeks ago I was invited to my local Fraser Hart to have a look at their brand new bridal jewellery collection. I'm getting married next year, so I'm on the lookout for wedding rings and maybe an extra bridal set for work.

The Bristol Cribbs Causeway branch has recently had a new re-fit, the store is really inviting and plush, and the sales assistants couldn't be any more helpful. I was really taken aback by their vast knowledge, I honestly didn't realise diamonds were so complicated. It takes a lot of training to become a diamond expert but I now I completely understand why, I felt as if I learnt such a lot within the hour or so I spent in store - it was such an awesome experience!

I'm looking for a bridal set I can wear to work because my engagement ring is high-set and catches on everything (a disadvantage of working with your hands). Sam surprised me by telling me he bought my ring as a set so although we don't need to look for a wedding ring to match my engagement ring, I still want another set for every day use.

I tried on some absolutely rawrsome sets, Fraser Hart truly have something for everyone. How cute is the Starburst set above (the second photo)? I've actually saved my favourite for last, so keep reading to get to the big reveal! ;)

If you already have your engagement ring, they also have a wide range of wedding bands. I'd never heard of 'sparkle cut' rings before, they are cut to look as if they have diamonds in them but they don't have any...Pure genius! The weird thing is, they are sparklier than the real diamond bands...Ugggh!? I think I'd buy one of those if I wasn't so into a bridal set! I also love the little ruby and diamond ring, it would be so nice to add a splash of colour.

If matching wedding bands are your thing, they have some wonderful his and hers sets and I loved the mixed metal options. I'm extremely picky when it comes to wedding bands for men, I want something very unusual so sadly I didn't find the right one for Sam, but I'll keep looking!

Brilliant Fire Diamond Ring
It's not every day you're given free reign of a jewellery store, so of course I ended up trying on some of the more expensive rings in the shop! Their 'Brilliant Fire' diamonds are skillfully cut to create the 'Hearts and Arrows' ideal cut diamond, which is perfectly symmetrical. These diamonds are beautiful, although I'm not sure how I feel about having a £12,000 rock on my finger haha! They do range in price according to their quality so you can get much more affordable rings which are extremely special. Each one comes with an IGI Hearts and Arrows Diamond Report (which is pretty fascinating in itself).

My favourite engagement ring was the pink and white diamond cluster ring I'm sporting below. I couldn't stop thinking about it! If I win the lottery I might just buy it and wear it on a different finger. Why not!? ;)

So time for the big reveal, my favourite bridal set was this beautiful white gold duoIt's blingy, reminds me of The Great Gatsby and is made from a combination of baguette and round diamonds. It's not *too expensive* but I still need to work on justifying it to Sam...We all know what men can be like. 

As both Jade and I have booked our venues and finally sorting our weddings, we will be posting a lot more about our plans and general wedding inspiration. We hope you're excited to follow our journeys! Within a few weeks we're planning to publish wedding content every Saturday, but for now it may still be a little sporadic. 

Which bridal set is your favourite? Would you like to see more posts like this?
