Proposing with a Tulip

Jewellery with a floral theme is always popular and you can find many designs ranging all the way from cute and intricate to clean and modern. We prefer designs that are not too on the nose and are more inclined to draw inspiration from life rather than make our jewellery lifelike. However, sometimes a piece of nature is so pretty that we... Continue Reading →

A repair that lead to a second proposal

We recently repaired a ring that had a broken claw and the customers were so pleased that they wrote a blog post about their experience. Thank you for the nice comments, A&W. We wanted to share it here, because it also explains the process clearly. Following excerpt is re-published with permission from A&W - The Couple... Continue Reading →

Eliminating the Gap, Part III

The gap between engagement ring and wedding ring does not seem to be quite as much of an issue with our clients now compared to a few years ago. That being said, we do still design wedding rings to sit nicely together with the engagement ring. Sometimes we make the engagement ring and wedding rings at... Continue Reading →

Custom Designing for Her

Most people who come to us want something that is not available in other shops. Something that is special and made only for them. They want to propose with something that comes from the heart. Often that requires more effort than simply shopping around among existing designs - but all that work pays off in the... Continue Reading →

Inherited Diamond for Engagement Ring

L brought us a ring that had belonged to his Oma (grandmother) that he wanted to set into a ring design that would better suit his future wife. From the start, we had to throw tradition out the window, as he wanted a ring that was curved around the finger, but did not join on top. The continuous circle of a ring... Continue Reading →

Wedding Cube Ring

Remember Yiz and Junhan with the three engagement rings? They came back recently to make their wedding rings. Since Yiz had three rings that she enjoys wearing on different fingers different days, she didn't want to add one more ring. Instead, we resized so that the cube ring will now only fit on the ring...

Three-of-a-kind Engagement Ring

Junhan wanted something special to propose with. He knew that Yiz would want something custom made, something that could not be found off the shelf. He described her personality and style and left it up to us to suggest a design. We knew that Yiz is playful, and likes to post her #ootd, yet wouldn't... Continue Reading →

Engagement Rings with Gemstones

Diamonds may be beautiful and sparkly, but they have recently been getting competition from other coloured gemstones as centrepieces in Engagement Rings. Coloured gemstones are stunning and unusual - both being traits that are favourable when designing an engagement ring. The variety of colours and shapes can also make gemstones more suitable for each individual's personality.... Continue Reading →

A Different Kind of Proposal Item

Vincent contacted us to have a Proposal Pendant made. Being an unusual choice, we decided to ask him some questions. Traditionally, people propose with a ring. You chose to make a Pendant to propose with. Could you explain why.  First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank More Than Diamonds for the... Continue Reading →

Resetting: From Square to Octagon

Jonathan's wife had lost a small Diamond in her engagement ring, so instead of just repairing it, he took the opportunity to refresh the whole ring. He wanted to change the ring into a beautiful long lasting design, while keeping the squarish feel of the original. We added more corners to the surrounding 'halo' to... Continue Reading →

Are you planning to Propose?

This seems to be the most popular way to propose, although an increasing number of couples come in to design their rings together as well. Custom designing such a significant item for your partner is beautiful. But it's not always easy. Sometimes, guys think... Continue Reading →

As simple as simple gets

A Solitaire Ring should be just that - a solitary Diamond on a band that makes it wearable on a finger. Too many details will take away the attention from the Diamond. Below are a few examples of simplicity at its best. Princess Cut Diamond on a modern flat band with brushed finish. Simple, modern,... Continue Reading →
