Bringing showers, sunshine and lighter evenings, we believe April is the perfect time to shake things up a little. Celebrating the old as well as the new, this month sees diamonds take centre stage along with Her Majesty’s milestone birthday. We also go behind the scenes with up-and-coming watch brand Bremont and our Buyers who are fresh from Baselworld – plus lots and lots of just-landed jewellery box essentials!
With love, from Beaverbrooks x
Stone Of The Month – Diamonds
The traditional birthstone of April, diamonds were formed billions of years ago deep under the Earth’s crust and were first mined in India around 700 B.C. Their striking beauty and inimitable rarity have made this precious stone one of the most sought-after treasures in history.
Symbolising affection, strength, eternity and everlasting love, diamonds are the ultimate birthday gift for those lucky enough to be born in the month of April.Shop All DIamonds

Synonymous with extreme levels of precision and performance, TAG Heuer have been involved with competitive sports since they were first founded – over 150 years ago. After playing an integral part in marathons across the world such as New York City, Chicago, Paris, Berlin and Moscow, TAG Heuer are now keen to show their support for another elite event on the sporting calendar.
Our very own Rob Garstang from the E-commerce Team took on the challenge of this infamous race last year. He said: “It had always been an aspiration since seeing it on TV as a kid to one day take part.
The atmosphere on the day is incredible, every step of the way there are hundreds of supporters which is great because mental strength plays a huge part.”
Taking place on Sunday 24th April, the 2016 London Marathon perfectly embodies the TAG Heuer mind-set of mental fortitude, perseverance and inner strength. We would like to wish a huge good luck to everyone running!Shop TAG Heuer

"My partner and I chose this ring together although he spotted it first. It was eye catching in the store and even more so on my hand after being proposed to. I love the unusual shape. It's both subtly classy and yet still eye catching enough to make a statement."
Janine, 3 December 2015
"Beautiful ring. Flawless design. Twinkles in the dullness and has a dazzling shine when the light hits it. Haven't stopped getting compliments."
