Wre're constantly in awe of the talented creatives out there that take a vision and really run with it – magic! Case in point? The amazing team at Robina-based Finelines Jewellers. At the helm, Master Craftsman Ben Tracy really knows his jewellery. Having spent a decade working in the UK and creating exquisite pieces for royalty and celebrities (just between us, his client-list includes Angelina Jolie and Victoria Beckham!), he's always excited to craft something new for couples.
Celebrating the 21st anniversary of Finelines Jewellers (pop the Champagne corks!), Ben is experienced in creating stunning bespoke jewellery that shows a client's personality. What does he really take pride in, though? Crafting quality bespoke engagement and wedding rings that will one day become a cherished family heirloom. Aw, we love!
“Take the opportunity to talk directly with the artisan who will make your piece.”
Thinking of popping the question? Want to get clued-up on the best choice for your wedding jewellery? We asked Master Crafsman Ben Tracy for his expert advice…
"The cost of this rare precious metal has decreased over recent years and with prices on par with white gold, it's a fantastic time to take advantage. With platinum, there's no need for a rhodium plate as the metal is naturally brilliant white. Plus, it's also a very dense metal that has great strength."
"With the Argyle diamond mine set to close next year, natural Australian Pink Diamonds will only become rarer. So, if you've ever dreamt of owning one of these beauties, it's better to invest sooner rather than later. These diamonds are definitely one of Earth's rare treasures!"
"You can use any old gold or gemstones to create something new. It's not only an ethical way of creating a new piece, but it'll also repurpose the old ring that was handed down that you probably wouldn't wear otherwise. What a great sentiment to have that old jewellery live on for future generations!"
"If the person proposing is looking for something a little bit different but is unsure if their choice will be the right one for their partner, look at purchasing a loose gemstone and proposing with that. Then, arrange an appointment together and design the perfect ring for them."
