Your Chosen Design Explained...

At Prestons we understand that choosing a piece of jewellery is a very personal decision. Here we explore the individual elements of your chosen design and how they combine to create the value and beauty of this incredible piece.

Emeralds

Each emerald our showrooms hand-select can offer its wearer a truly exquisite spectrum of colour from the mineral beryl family. The gemstone demonstrates colours from a subtle or warming yellow-toned green through to a more vivid or rich green mixed with flashes of deep blue. The depth or vibrancy of each gemstone will not only reflect the stone's distinctive colour but also its clarity and cut. Today, an emerald continues to be considered one of the most classic jewellery choices and is instantly recognisable by its unique colour and nature.

A Halo Style

A halo design is one of the most popular designs for those looking for brilliance or sparkle. In most instances, it will feature one predominantly larger central stone, of any cut or colour, and will be surrounded by a delicate row or halo of much smaller diamonds. These could be, for example, round brilliant cut diamonds which add a subtle or delicate shimmer to decorate the piece of jewellery. This design is similar to that of a cluster, only the surrounding stones are much smaller in the halo, serving to compliment the central stone.

The Emerald Cut

The emerald cut dates back to the 1500s when stone cutters first began the journey to create what is now amongst one of the most popular fancy cuts. This particular cut oozes elegance due to its dramatic hall of mirror or stepped effect facets. The shape is often less fiery than a round brilliant cut but often tends to have wider and more dramatic flashes of light. The emerald cut is known for its steep cut pavilion and its large open table, often accentuating a diamond’s clarity, making cuts with supreme clarity more desirable.

A Grain Setting

A grain setting is a technique in which diamonds or precious gemstones are carefully placed on part or all of a jewellery design, giving the illusion that the piece is entirely made up of precious gemstones. This particular style is similar to that of a channel setting but with the addition of subtle and delicate claws, often referred to as beads, holding each precious stone and creating a vintage or ornate style.

Our Bespoke Creations

Each of our bespoke collections take inspiration from the precious gemstones we have hand-chosen to create them, their natural spectrum and wealth of colour as well as their cut and shape. Each jewellery suite we design is firstly hand-sketched, rendered, using the last CAD technology, and then cast. This process allows each of our jewellery designers to explore how the final piece will look and how each hand-chosen gemstone will sit within it.

Since 1869

Throughout the decades Prestons have helped create many special moments and thousands of happy memories. So many couples have started their journey together with a Prestons diamond engagement ring and for many years our original showroom in Bolton was known as the Diamond Centre Of The North for very good reason.

We understand that every story is unique and that every piece of fine jewellery is chosen for the special occasions in your life. Today, we continue to create exquisite jewellery designs that will be cherished forever.
