Gems Uncut: April 2023

| 6 min read

In case you didn’t hear, we’ve got a newsletter!

Our brand-new digital newsletter, Gems Uncut, is officially here, providing you with another platform to receive all your latest gemstone information – as well as some special launches and promotions we’ve got on our website!

Gems Uncut gets sent directly to your email; but, in case you missed it, here’s a look at what April’s newsletter has in store for you – as well as a few sneak peeks of what didn’t quite make it inside!


Carbon Neutral

This month, Earth Month, we celebrate the beauty of Mother Earth; it’s a time to raise environmental awareness and create consciousness around the issues that affect our planet. Businesses account for a huge part of the UK’s total Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG), which is why we have worked hard - and continue to work hard - to tackle our own Carbon Footprint.

By providing only ethically sourced gemstones, switching to more eco-friendly packaging and reducing the energy consumption in the delivery of products from international suppliers, we have done a lot to change how we operate. We aren’t perfect, and we know that there is still much to improve upon, but it is a goal we are 100% committed to.

Did you know that with your support, we can reduce our environmental impact even further? Here are just a few ways you can help:

  • All of our jewellery packaging is recyclable. So, once you have opened up your treasure, please don’t throw it away - recycle it instead!

  • If you have your eye on more than one item, consider placing them all in the same order in order to reduce emissions from delivery vehicles - you’ll save some money, too!

  • If you’re not at home when items are delivered to you, consider walking or cycling to your local post office to collect them.

  • According to the MIT Centre for Transportation and Logistics, choosing standard delivery rather than premium can help to decrease carbon emissions by around 30%.

  • If you think there are more ways for us to reduce our environmental impact, don’t be afraid to tell us!


Diamond Jewellery

As April's birthstone and one of the most sought-after gemstones on the market, Diamonds really are forever. It’s a true privilege to own a piece of Diamond jewellery - and now, it’s never been easier! So, why not treat someone (or yourself) to one of Earth’s most desirable treasures?

Whether you’re an April baby, or whether you’re shopping for that all-important engagement ring, we’re guaranteed to have a Diamond for you.

Planning for your special day?

Your bridal jewellery is a hugely important (and special!) part of your wedding attire - it ties your whole look together, and provides an extra touch of elegance.

As times progress, brides are opting for less ‘traditional’ jewellery styles for their weddings. Here are a few alternative bridal trends that have become popular over the years:

Art Deco

Unique and bespoke jewellery styles are coming back into fashion, and art deco pieces are becoming more and more sought after. Jewellery and gemstone industry icons such as Glenn Lehrer and Samuel B have a whole range of quirky and stylish designs for you to choose from - and we're privileged to have them available for you.


Plus, in-keeping with slightly older fashion trends, family heirlooms make perfect jewellery pieces for brides. Jewellery passed down from previous generations adds an extra bit of sentiment to a wedding day - and, they can also be a bride’s ‘something old’ or ‘something borrowed’.

Coloured Gemstones

It’s no secret that Diamonds are the obvious choice for wedding jewellery, and particularly when it comes to engagement rings - they last forever, they can be styled with anything, and they’re undoubtedly beautiful.

However, more and more brides are opting for some colour in their wedding attire, and there are lots of options to choose from! Coloured Diamonds are increasingly popular, and there are also a whole range of other gemstones that are durable and exquisite enough for your nuptials - Sapphire, Ruby, Tanzanite and Emerald to name but a few.

Mixed Metals

Who says you can’t? Mixing your metals is a foolproof way to add a personal touch to your wedding style. From Sterling Silver and Yellow Gold to Rose Gold and Platinum, there are so many combinations to consider.

For the latest in our metal jewellery, our brand-new Core collection is bursting at the seams with the finest Gold and Silver pieces, that can be worn either every day or for that one special occasion. It’s your day, so just have fun with it!

Pro-Life CBD

Founded by Cherry and Toby Cavill, ProLife CBD was born out of necessity following the siblings’ own battles with various health conditions.

Their aim was to source the finest-quality CBD oils for their own usage; however, after realising many of the products on the market were not all they were marketed to be, they decided to help others on their health journeys, too.

CBD, sourced from the hemp plant alongside around 100 other cannabinoids, works with the endocannabinoids in our bodies to help us achieve optimum health. CBD is not psychoactive, and is linked to a wide range of health benefits; it can also provide aid for a variety of ailments including Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, epilepsy, insomnia, anxiety and menopause.
