But we know just the minimalist, bohemian and sustainable jewellery brand for you – Daint Jewellery.
Captivated by the nature, tranquillity and simplicity of Sydney’s beaches and based within the rolling Northumberland landscape, Kim White – the creative talent behind these dainty designs – has been making waves in the North East with her jewellery.
Using sterling silver, gemstones and hand-picked sea glass from Northumberland beaches, Kim creates classic styles that take us from season to season. Dedicated to detail and bringing love and attention into each design, Kim makes every piece to order – meaning every treasure is unique to each customer.
And just in time for Valentine’s Day, Kim has launched her new Bespoke Northumberland Sea Glass Ring Gift Box, which gives your loved ones a chance to design their very own, ultra-unique ring. Plus, she shares her secrets to help us make sure we get the ring size just right…
THE BESPOKE NORTHUMBERLAND SEA GLASS RING COLLECTION
Personal gifts are always the best ones and, with this collection, you get to choose the colour of the Northumberland sea glass on your ring – which is so much more special and sentimental than your store-bought alternatives.
‘The Northumberland Sea Glass Ring is my most popular jewellery item,’ says Kim. ‘I often hear my customers say they would love to give the sea glass ring as a gift, but are unsure of their giftee’s ring size. I thought it would be nice to create a giftable sea glass ring that came with the option to choose different design elements and sizes.’
HOW IT WORKS
The recipient will receive a small parcel containing their very own piece of Northumberland Sea Glass, selected by their gifter.
After measuring their finger using the ring sizer provided, they have the chance to choose from three dainty sterling silver designs – dimpled, etched or shiny.
Complete the order form and return the sea glass piece and completed order form by post to the address provided.
The bespoke Northumberland Sea glass ring will be handmade to the selected specifications and will arrive through the giftee’s letterbox within 1-2 weeks.
BUT HOW DO WE WORK OUT THE PERFECT RING SIZE?
We’ve all done it – tried to guess our loved one’s ring size, failed to guess our loved one’s ring size, and then had to return the chosen ring a few weeks later. Well, worry no more; inside every Bespoke Northumberland Sea Glass Ring Gift is a ring sizer to keep, so you’re guaranteed to get the right size the first time around.
‘As long as your size is a comfortable fit for you, there isn’t a right or wrong,’ says Kim. ‘But there are a few factors to bear in mind when finding your ring size. Your temperature and physical activity can affect the size of your fingers, so I would advise measuring your finger a few times throughout the day to be sure. Also, wider ring bands require more wiggle room so you may need to size up in some cases.
‘Your finger size can fluctuate over the years, so ring sizers are handy to keep for peace of mind when ordering new rings. But if you don’t have a ring sizer to hand, there are other ways to find your ring size. One sneaky way is by measuring the inside diameter of one of your loved one’s favourite rings. You can use the chart on my ring sizing guide to determine your ring size.’
