When it comes to the British royal family, jewellery is no mere embellishment. The royal jewels signify power, beauty and prestige; they are breathtaking symbols of the royal legacy, passed down as family heirlooms from one generation to the next. They are no afterthought, but are in fact centrepieces, catching the eye of millions in their priceless beauty imbued with history.
Though Her Majesty doesn’t hand the royal luxury jewellery out as gifts, she allows other members of the royal family to wear them long-term. For instance, Kate Middleton is often seen wearing a bracelet that was once Queen Mary’s diamond choker. This piece, while on loan, still remains part of Her Majesty’s personal jewellery collection.
Of course, Kate herself has her own jewellery collection, full of exquisite pieces gifted to her by the royal family. One such piece is her engagement ring, which has become the world’s most famous sapphire ring. Originally Princess Diana’s, this engagement ring features 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire, set in 18-carat white gold.
For the rest of the world, wearing such an iconic piece is a dream. But with ANTON Jewellery, wearing such breathtaking pieces can become a reality.
Inspired by the pieces worn by Her Majesty the Queen, the Duchess of Cambridge, and other members of the royal family, the master jewellers of ANTON create a statement of timeless magnificence with their Regal Collection. This stunning range reflects elegance, beauty, power and grace, and each piece was crafted to impress, inspire and influence.
The intricately designed pieces of the Regal Collection include rings, earrings and necklaces, astonishing the eyes with the sublime colour and elegance of the rare Tanzanite.
Wearing this collection, you too can embody royal luxury. Live life as a princess or queen with jewellery made to echo their artful sophistication.

When it comes to proposing to that special person in your life, we know that the little things matter. You get to do this once, so it is a good idea to get it right!
With all the many luxurious engagement ring styles out there, how do you best choose the bridal jewellery to suit your needs? How do you pick the best looking piece that says all you need to when proposing?
We’re here to guide you with some great ideas that can make your choice easier.
Selecting the right custom arrangement of stones or even choosing a standout option like a piece with one of our Hello Yellow Rare Fancy Diamonds can really help your engagement ring look stunning. We have extensive experience and can help you design an imaginative piece. When it comes to custom engagement rings in Melbourne our skilled jewelers can create works of art that delight as well as celebrate the beauty of your engagement.
Having a unique message engraved onto an engagement ring can be really rewarding, as you add that personal touch to a special piece. The question is which message should you choose?
The most popular option is to have the date of the wedding engraved on the ring. Some couples prefer to opt for a special phrase or affectionate names for each other and often get them etched inside of the band. Popular options include Forever & Always or Today & Every Day.
Another distinctive way to personalise an engagement ring is to include your partner’s birthstone as a part of the arrangement. This is distinctive and looks quite lavish, yet personal too.
Personally, choosing a diamond or gemstone and designing a setting that you feel best reflects the love you share, is something which can be fun and very rewarding once you get the finished result.
Visiting a professional jeweller to design your luxurious engagement ring will help you create an elegant piece that represents your relationship and your sense of style.
Putting the piece together will feel as satisfying as the thought of marrying the love of your life.

Wedding rings symbolise a life-long commitment to your partner. Therefore, finding the perfect diamond for your wedding ring is an important task that shouldn’t be rushed. With so many diamonds to choose from, you might find the task overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Just remember the four C’s – cut, colour, clarity and carat. Let us elaborate in this practical diamond buying guide.
The four C’s cover the most important characteristics of a diamond that are important to consider when planning to purchase wedding rings or luxury jewellery. The four C’s will ultimately dictate the quality of the diamond and even minor differences in each characteristic can affect the final price.
First, consider the cut of the diamond. This is arguably the most important of the four C’s, as the cut dictates that distinctive diamond sparkle. Most diamonds have a full 58 facets; more facets mean more scintillation. A great cut makes the best use of light reflecting off the diamond, creating a greater ‘sparkle’.
The quality of the cut measures not only the value of the stone itself but the craftsmanship of the jeweller. Indeed, only a master jeweller can turn rough, raw diamond into an iridescent work of art perfect for your wedding ring.
When studying a diamond’s cut, look at the brightness, fire, and scintillation.
The less colour the diamond has, the higher its quality. The perfect diamond, thus, is completely colourless. The colour distinction in the diamond can have a huge impact on the diamond’s value and price.
Diamonds with more facets tend to focus more on the sparkle than the colour. After all, more facets means more light reflection, and this tends to hide the colour. If, you want to focus more on the colour, however, you should choose a princess or another such modified brilliant cut over a step cut.
A diamond’s clarity is a measure of its internal purity. A jeweller assesses the small imperfections found on both the surface of the diamond and internally. The surface flaws are called blemishes and the internal flaws are called inclusions. Since imperfections are microscopic, they don’t affect the beauty of the diamond in any way. For this reason, clarity is considered the least important factor in the four C’s.
If you’re after a higher clarity grade for your diamond wedding ring, consider the following:
Carat refers to the diamond’s actual weight, not its size. The diamond’s weight doesn’t always equal beauty; it still relies primarily on the diamond’s cut. Remember, a large carat diamond with a poor cut grade can appear smaller than a small carat diamond with a high cut grade.
Not all settings will fit your diamond’s carat or shape. If you ‘ve already selected a setting, consult with an expert jeweller to determine what kind of diamond will work best for you.
For millennia, rings have been used as a symbol of marriage. This custom of exchanging wedding rings has become weaved into the fabric of many cultures around the world, going as far back as ancient Egypt.
The use of metals as rings, however, can be traced back to the ancient Romans, who used iron to make their wedding bands as a symbol of strength and permanence. This tradition has carried through to modern times where many couples choose to create their own custom wedding rings to celebrate their unique and everlasting bond.
After all, custom rings not only symbolise life-long happiness with your partner, but also reflect your individual style and personality. Below are some other reasons you should consider commissioning a pair of these bespoke jewellery pieces.
Discuss your vision with an expert jeweller to ensure you’re creating a engagement or wedding ring that’s one of a kind. Your jeweller will sketch out your ring ideas and will bring your personal taste to life to create a phenomenal and fully-personalised work of art.
You will be involved in the process from the beginning to the end. Ultimately, you will have the final say on which metal is used, and the cut and shade of your chosen gemstone – ensuring you’re completely happy with the end result.
Money is typically a big factor when it comes to deciding on the right luxury jewellery – especially if you have your heart set on a diamond ring. A custom ring gives you great control over the final cost and allows you to select metals and gemstones that fall within your budget, while still remaining of a high quality. Set yourself a budget before you begin and work towards this amount when designing your ring to ensure you and your partner are as happy as your bank account.
Commissioning a custom ring ensures your piece is expertly crafted to the highest possible quality. Your jeweller will work meticulously on your specific design, so it meets your expectations. This level of precision and attention to detail will result in a luxury piece unmatched by a typical, mass-produced comparison.
Wedding rings symbolise your love for your partner and of course already possess high emotional value. But a custom ring will always feel that much more special because you were involved in its creation. After all, there’s nothing quite as sweet as wearing a jewellery piece that’s been carefully and painstakingly crafted with you in mind. To gift a custom wedding ring is to take all the emotions, memories and shared passions of your relationship and craft a tangible representation of this love.
