The Perfect Partnership: Propose this Year with Michael Spiers…

To celebrate Valentine’s this year, we have launched an ultra romantic package with sparkle specialists Michael Spiers. Known for their quality, sophistication and craftsmanship when it comes to jewellery design and dazzling diamonds in Devon and Cornwall, we couldn’t think of a better partnership.

We’ve launched our very own proposal package. Enjoy browsing a selection of stunning rings (all chosen to suit your budget) and celebrate with a champagne brunch at Mannings afterwards – what a way to treat the lady in your life!

To get you in the mood for this beautiful boutique experience, we’ve asked the experts at Michael Spiers to put together their top tips on proposing to your significant other this year. As Marilyn Monroe said, ‘whether square cut or pear shaped, those rocks don’t lose their shape, diamonds are a girls best friend!”

Choose with your heart…it’s important to know your colours, clarity’s and carats, but essentially, you need to choose with your heart. You’ll know when you put it on her finger and she never wants to take it off!

Go classic and timeless…this is a “forever” ring, don’t go high fashion and on trend, go classic and timeless. Something she’ll love forever. Go for diamond, there’s a reason the word comes from the Ancient Greek for “unbreakable” and platinum, the purest, rarest and hardest wearing of precious metals.

It’s an investment…an engagement ring can be a big investment with good reason – it’s the one piece of jewellery she won’t take off, it represents your love for her through every season, year after year. Michael Spiers can help you make the right decision and even offer up to 36 months interest free credit (enquire in store for further information).

But don’t get hung up on price… there are rings to suit every price point and with the ‘Diamonds & Decadence’ Mannings & Michael Spiers package you inform us of your budget beforehand so it is all prepared before you arrive in store meaning that whatever she chooses will be at a price you can afford. There are so many stories about 2 x monthly salary payments etc on an engagement ring but at the end of the day, it’s not about spending the most but getting a ring that she will love for eternity, that’s priceless!

Suss out her style… for those men daring to purchase the ring as a surprise, we salute you but we know it can be a bit of a conundrum with all of the cuts, colours, carats and more! Try to work out what her style is – simple and classic, we recommend a solitaire. Loves her glitz and likes to dress up, perhaps look at a three stone diamond ring or for a woman who wants something a bit more unusual, perhaps opt for a unique shape or a coloured diamond…the possibilities are endless!
