Once you’ve found the woman of your dreams, and spent some significant quality time with her, it won’t be long before you are thinking of dropping down to one knee. Some may side with tradition and ask her father for her hand first, other’s will spend hours and hours planning the perfect proposal, but all that is rendered irrelevant if you don’t have a show-stopping ring to seal the deal.
As the nights draw in, the mornings seem darker than ever, and people far and wide discuss whether it’s cold enough to put the heating on, winter is well and truly coming. The end of October looms ever closer, meaning that, already, we are beginning to catch glimpses of festive cheer. People will now be thinking about what to get for their nearest and dearest this Christmas, and, more importantly, what’s going to be top of their list this year!
There’s a part of our brain known as the motor cerebellum, and it becomes activated in the presence of something fabulous, and usually sparkly. This means that when you desire a certain item, the pleasure centre of your brain lights up and controls motor skills, giving you a physical impulse… like reaching out and taking what is not yours.

With Christmas and New Year fast-approaching, there is no denying that it is officially engagement ring season. People are searching far and wide for what they believe to be the ideal ring for their significant other, and that’s just part of what they need to consider when planning the perfect proposal. The romantic nature of winter is undeniable; as cosy nights in front of the fire, snow, seasonal festivities and the opportunity for a ‘new start’ all set the scene nicely for such a magnificent gesture.

Here at Susannah Lovis, we have several beautiful opal ornaments that are steeped in history and intrigue, making for the perfect, thoughtful present for someone born in October. That said, anyone can enjoy and appreciate the beauty of... Read More
