Jewellery has recently become an interest of mine and Bath has a number of fine jewellery establishments. One of which is the Gold and Platinum Studio Bath. Most jewellers can be found on Northumberland Place a small street just opposite the guild hall.
Gold and Platinum Studio Bath
When looking around for an engagement ring I spent a lot of time looking in windows and browsing sites on the internet. Whilst not being a complete noob as I have looked into investing in diamonds I am by no means an expert. The store window is bright with clear light and the stones used in the jewellery are some of the clearest I have seen. The staff at the Gold and Platinum Studio are very friendly and knowledgeable and they work on pieces upstairs in their workshop.
The Gold and Platinum Studio were able to order a few diamonds of the approx size I wanted allowing me to choose the one I liked the most. I had the option of GIA certified or non certified diamonds with varying characteristics.
When it comes to diamonds there are four C’s to remember. Colour, Cut, Clarity and carat. Once I had made my choice of metal (platinum of course), the diamond and the design of the ring.
More than diamonds
They have more than diamonds. There are some extremely gorgeous pieces made with a wide variety of different stones. The only gems that are ever certified are diamonds. Emeralds, sapphires and rubies have no standards or certificates. Every stone is individually valued on its own merits. There are several pieces that my wife has her eye on and we will certainly be buying a new piece soon.
