Our top five jewellery & watch picks for May
Shopping for jewellery and watches is extremely exciting, but when you’re faced with so many options, it can also seem a little daunting. If you’re looking for an elegant new piece of jewellery or you’re struggling to know which timepiece to invest in, you’ll be pleased to know that the team here at Ramsdens have picked out their top five jewellery and watches for this month to give you a little inspiration.
1. Men’s pre-owned Rolex Day-Date watch
From one of the most sought-after watch brands in the world, we just had to include this sleek men’s Rolex Day-Date in our May favourites. The subtle contrast between the yellow gold casing and the champagne numeral dial ensures this piece exudes luxury in all aspects and really plays up to its reputation as the ultimate status watch. And, as the watch of choice for more presidents and famous figures than any other model, what better one to invest in than this one?
The Day-Date’s performance is enhanced by its resistance to water and a self-winding chronometer meaning it’s less likely to accumulate debris or fall victim to leakage from batteries.
2. Pre-owned 18ct Yellow Gold 0.20ct Diamond Solitaire Ring
Solitaire ring styles are undeniably sophisticated and simple, but when you add a polished yellow gold band and an exceptional six claw setting, it’s the perfect accessory for any hand. So, whether you’re looking to add a new piece to your jewellery box, or you want to surprise your loved one, this ring can do both.
Crafted from 18-carat yellow gold and finished off with a round brilliant gemstone, this is a definite winner with us here at Ramsdens this month. What do we love most about it? The understated simplicity. Whether you’ve got long fingers, short fingers, wide hands or narrow ones, the versatility of this piece makes it suitable for any finger shape so you can’t go wrong with a purchase like this!
Although the diamond weighs in at 0.2 carats, the raised claw setting enlarges the appearance, so you’re likely to get heads turning when wearing this ring. And, as this purchase comes complete with a diamond certificate, you can guarantee you’re getting the real deal despite the affordable price.
3. 9ct yellow gold patterned and plain belcher bracelet
Here at Ramsdens, we are bracelet-obsessed! Not only are these wrist accessories fantastic when used to finish off your outfits, but they also great as keepsakes that can be handed down generations.
With so many bracelets in stock, this was a tricky one to narrow down but our favourite has to be this stunning belcher bracelet with an elegant lobster clasp. If it’s not the sleek 9-carat yellow gold finish, the contrast between the polished and patterned links is sure to get you noticed when you sport this piece. And, with varying lengths available from 7.5″ to 8.5″, you won’t have trouble finding the perfect size.
What we love most about this bracelet is that the subtle detailing makes it versatile enough to be used by both men and women, so whether you are shopping for the opposite sex or are looking for matching sentimental pieces for you and your partner, this is a winner!
4. Pre-owned Rolex Lady-Datejust Watch
We just can’t get enough of Rolex this month, and we are loving this particular timepiece at the minute. Heralded as the classic feminine watch, this model has been designed with timeless elegance, and a smaller size to ensure it is a match made in heaven for women everywhere.
The contrast between the yellow gold and stainless steel used on the jubilee bracelet strap ensures this watch strikes the perfect balance between lustre and reliability. Plus, the Rolex face has also been manufactured with a splash of baby pink to make it even more beautiful. The combination of colours used throughout ensures that it’ll be versatile enough to be worn alongside any of your other jewellery, no matter what colour it is.
5. 14ct white and yellow gold 1.00ct diamond cluster ring
This traditional-style ring is definitely up there for us as one of the most beautiful pieces we’ve ever stocked. From the cluster of dazzling diamonds to the subtle blend of 14-carat white and yellow gold, this will be a timeless addition to any jewellery collection.
We love this ring as a statement piece of jewellery against a plain outfit, or to add an extra-luxurious touch to an already bold outfit. The dimensions and shape of this cluster ring make it perfect for hands of any size, especially for smaller hands where the diamonds will appear enlarged.
With a diamond clarity grading of I1 and a colour grade H, this stunning cluster ring is brilliant value for money — and comes with the box and certification, too!
This ring is a must-have if you’re looking to impress. Plus, with so many diamonds adorning it, it’ll make a fantastic present for the Aries or Taurus in your life.
