Delicate, handmade and organically inspired, Michelle specialises in creating unique alternative engagement and wedding rings for the uncommon bride. Special attention is given to the selection of natural gemstones used, particularly grey diamonds and sapphires in interesting shapes and cuts.
A natural grey diamond differs to a salt and pepper diamond in that the colour is pure, it fills the entire diamond and is not made up of inclusions. The colour is deemed ‘fancy’ as are yellow or pink diamonds, and is highly coveted and rare.
The pale, icy tone of a grey diamond is a natural occurring colour, and its rareness increases the value respectively.
Round brilliant cut diamonds are the most popular diamond shape. From round old-mine and European cuts, to the high-sparkle of the modern 'Brilliant' cut, round diamonds are the most enduring and popular shape throughout the centuries of diamond cutting history.
The modern 'brilliant' round cut is cut for maximum sparkle, or as its name suggests, brilliance. Each of the 57or 58 facets cut into the stone have been meticulously measured and maximised to allow the optimum reflection or light to bounce around inside the diamond, reflecting out a brilliant sparkle. The ubiquitous sparkle of the brilliant cut round diamond makes it an extremely versatile choice, easy to wear, and a good level of sparkle even with inclusions.

Gold is a naturally occurring metal with a warm, glowing finish when polished, and remains the most popular choice for engagement rings due to its natural beauty and hard-wearing strength.
Pure 24k gold is naturally a soft material, and considered too soft to create jewellery with, so it is mixed with small amounts of other metals to create an alloy.
As well as increasing the durability of the gold, adding alloys can also change the colour of the gold to produce rose or white gold, for example.
18k yellow gold is made up of 75% pure gold, and 25% alloy, which would usually include silver and copper.
18k rose gold is made up of 75% pure gold, 22.2% copper, and 9.2% silver.
18k white gold is made up of 75% pure gold and 25% palladium or platinum.
