Glasgow Promotion 2017

Our Glasgow Promotion starts next week! If you’re thinking about rings head to our concession in Frasers…

There our Glasgow team have a wonderful selection of new engagement rings, wedding bands, matching rings and interlocking ring sets ready to show you. Pictured above is Sheila’s new Venus ring set. We crafted these rings in white gold then set a large diamond by hand…

Venus Ring Set

Venus Ring with handset diamond, DR2122.VENUS-PLAIN SET

You can buy Venus individually or as part of a set. The Venus ring set makes a stunning contemporary engagement ring and wedding band set. But it’s also nice as an eternity set or for any special occasion! The set will be on our website’s ring set page soon.

We had one very happy customer… pictured here with her Venus engagement ring after saying yes!

Making Venus

You might notice a slightly different colour in the rings here. The ring on Tam’s finger above is platinum rather than white gold. Platinum is the hardest of all the precious metals we use and polishes beautifully. Once we’re finished it’s very shiny, the perfect home for an sparkling, brilliant cut diamond.

We use high quality diamonds which give you the best value for your money and, of course, our diamonds are from reputable sources.

Tam and Tim

We met Tam and Tim when they came to choose their wedding bands. It’s actually Tam’s elegant hand you can see above. Tam chose a platinum Constellation band to go with her Venus engagement ring.  This band has little handset diamonds around it, like stars in the sky. It’s an interesting variation on the plain wedding band shown in the white gold Venus ring set above.

We had a very happy and memorable afternoon together. Thanks for letting us share, Tam and Tim, and we hope the preparations for the big day are going well!

Vibrant Enamel Colours

If you like colour we also can help! Developing unique colourways from fused grains of glass is one of Sheila’s passions. Indeed, Sheila Fleet Jewellery has become known for its vibrant enamel colours, as well as its fine hand finish.

We have many beautiful silver and enamel rings… If you would like colour but also want gold then you are looking at 18ct yellow gold with enamel. This sumptuous metal shines through the enamel to give a truly exotic colour palette.

Inspired by the sea… above right we have Sheila’s New Wave rings. You can wear these rings together as  a ring set, or have one each, as matching rings. On the left we have the River Ripple ring set. Here both New Wave and River Ripple are in yellow gold with handset diamonds and Ocean enamel. We’ll have River Ripple in exotic yellow gold and enamel on our website soon. It’s already available in silver with enamel and in gold without enamel.

The Glasgow team

So we hope we might have tempted you to come along! Our team in Frasers are busy getting ready for the Glasgow Promotion. You can see Jacqui below putting the final polish on some new gold pieces.  You’ll find our concession on the Ground Floor of Frasers in Buchanan Street.
