“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” sang Marilyn Monroe, dripping in all forms are sparkly cuts and carats as she strutted her stuff on the silverscreen.
Oh yes…beautiful gemstones have never ceased to fascinate the imagination of female-kind but things have changed quite a bit and have adjusted to modern times and forward thinking philosophies.
Enter South African brand, Shiny Rock Polished, the answer to any modern girl’s gemstone fantasies!
I first discovered the brand at a showcase evening in 2017 and have since been obsessed with their beautiful morganite pieces…but there is just so much more to discover and I was thrilled to have an opportunity to spend some time with the lead designer, Patricia Palm, who custom-creates all Shiny Rock Polished clients’ bespoke pieces with the most exclusive gemstones including tourmaline, emeralds, rubies and yes, diamonds.
The stone that caught my eye this season, though, is the peacock sapphire, with it’s exciting blue-green facets - such a unique and on-trend colour! SRP truly has the best selection of stones in the country, (without the ridiculous mark-ups of commercial stores) and have clients all over the world.
If you are looking for a true investment piece, personalised service and the best value I recommend setting up an appointment with the SRP team: www.shinyrockpolished.com
But wait, there’s more! One lucky reader could WIN their own custom designed ring from Shiny Rock Polished worth R20 000 -eeeeeek!!!! Enter now on the SRP competition page:
