It's been a busy summer in the Sorrel Bay studios in preparation for our upcoming shows in the Autumn and Winter months. We have created a beautiful new collection of agate rings using rare agate slices, each stone hand picked for it's unique markings and colours. We feel these rings are truly stunning and sit brilliantly with our existing collection of diamond rings.
They will be available to purchase via our online shop in the next few weeks, so please keep an eye out for them there.

This past month we have been busy in the studio creating some beautiful new diamond bombe rings, which will be available soon to purchase on the website. Using our signature 18ct fair trade yellow gold, each ring has been hand crafted in our UK studios. The rose cut diamonds we used were chosen for their striking depth and colour and sparkle like no other.
Last year saw our engagement rings become even more popular and after a few lovely Christmas commissions, we are looking forward to starting some more again in time for Valentines Day and Spring proposals. With our bespoke service, you can chose the perfect diamond for your one of a kind ring, using ethically sourced gemstones and fair trade gold. If you are thinking of proposing and would like to find out more about our bespoke engagement service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We've been busy in the studio this summer getting reading for Goldsmiths' Fair this October. We will be exhibiting in week two of the fair, from the 3rd - 8th October 2017 and are really excited to showcase some of our new pieces, as well as our current collections.
One of the pieces we are really excited about is this Eternal Diamond Ring. The ring has a record amount of diamonds for us - 42 - and it sparkles like no other. If you would like to see it on and catch those sparkles for yourself, make sure to visit us and try it on.
We are fully into wedding season now, and although the weather has taken a turn for the worse in the South, we're still feeling optimistic about all those beautiful summer celebrations there are to look forward to. These diamond rings are some of our favourite alternative wedding and engagement pieces, each one unique with it's own charm. If you're planning on popping the question, why not consider a one of a kind, hand crafted and fair trade ring? We have a large selection of pieces, or if you would like something bespoke, get in touch and we can create a piece just for you.

We are proud to have been interviewed by Retail Jeweller for their Industry Q&A feature online.
We discussed why ethical jewellery is integral to Sorrel Bay, and our plans for the future of the brand.
Here's an extract from the article:
"Q: How did you get into ethical jewellery?
A: As a child, I was taught to live life as ethically as possible, it was something my parents believed strongly in. For the future of this planet we all need to consider our individual impact on the globe. My children already know the simple rule that one by one, we can change the world. It is the actions of the individual in great numbers that can make the change, so we are all individually very powerful and we must always believe in that."

Green is my most favourite colour and these ethically sourced Australian tourmalines are in shades that are reminiscent of the crystal clear ocean. Always using my 18ct Fairtrade gold bands I'm working on new settings for these mouth watering gems.
