1. Eternity ring

2. Right hand ring

Your engagement and wedding rings now live on your left hand, but there’s still room for a unique statement piece. Celebrate your important first anniversary with a beautiful piece for your right hand. Whether you’re looking to match your existing bridal set, or create a completely standalone design, your first anniversary is an excellent time to get creative.

3. Cufflinks

Traditional cufflinks, handmade with bar and chain, are the epitome of luxury. A far cry from the mass-produced varieties you can pick up in department stores, handmade cufflinks are a gift your partner can hold onto for years to come. The weight, the feel, the craftsmanship. Simply luxurious.

4. Earrings

No jewellery collection is complete without a staple pair (or few) of luxury handmade earrings. For such a special occasion as your first anniversary, opt for a timeless design that your partner can wear for years to come. Think diamond studs, a coloured gem, or for a little more of a statement, a beautiful halo design.

The two of you can then design a beautiful piece together to celebrate your first anniversary.
