DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER When Paul Stewart and Samantha Gill were planning their USA trip last year, Paul had one exceptional surprise in store. Paul asked Samantha to spend the rest of her life with him as they were strolling through Miami’s breathtaking Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. “We were walking along the waterfront, and Paul started saying that he could never imagine doing life with anyone else,” recalls Samantha. “Then he got down on one knee and popped the question.” Paul did so with a beautiful oval cut diamond set in rose gold; a custom-designed ring that he’d worked closely with the team at Jewellery By Design to create especially for Samantha. “The inspiration for the design all came from Sam,” Paul says. “Knowing Sam, knowing what she loves and knowing what she wants. “The JBD team helped me find the right diamond for my budget and suggested a few design tweaks. Then they designed digital renders so I could see how the finished product would look. “With every step being done instore, I was able to pop into JBD when the diamond arrived and again when the casting was complete, which made it really easy.” Samantha says Paul’s design is perfect. “I’ve deliberately never looked at engagement rings, but when I received this one, I knew it was the one.” While Samantha’s ring was originally a little too small, the JBD team was able to resize it for her. “I hated parting with my beautiful ring, but the very next day they called to say it was done. It took less than 24 hours, and it’s totally flawless, you can’t even tell.” While Paul and Samantha are yet to decide on a date or venue for their wedding, they do know one thing for sure: “We’ll definitely get the wedding bands done at JBD,” says Paul. “The service is amazing, we’ll always come back.”
