88 Rue du Rhone
Forever keeping our eye out for new and exciting products, we predict the next big thing will be … 88 Rue Du Rhone. Bruce, our watch buyer, tells us what he loves about this luxurious new brand.
“Established by the grandsons of the iconic Swiss watchmaker, Raymond Weil, 88 Rue Du Rhone comes from an impressive pedigree. We love its heritage, Swiss Made credentials and superb attention to detail which is accentuated with exquisite designs and luxurious finishes.
Exhibiting classical elegance in every detail, the ladies’ collection is available in stainless steel with gold and rose gold accents, and features beautifully designed dials illuminated with glittering diamonds. As for the men’s watches, they strike the perfect balance between classic and sporty style, whilst continuing to evoke Swiss-luxury and refinement.”
“Personally I’ve got my eye on one of the chronographs from the Double 8 Origin collection. I love the detailed dial designs and the subtle flash of colour on some of the models.”Shop 88 Rue Du Rhone

68 days to wedding bells
It’s all starting to feel very real now as Lorna and Matt get closer to their big day. In amongst trips to wedding venues, photographers and travel agents, they’ve finally decided on their wedding rings and have received some samples this week. Lorna said “For me, the most exciting bit was opening the box, seeing the ring sparkle and knowing that I will have this ring for a very long time! I felt quite emotional!”
Something you’ll wear for the rest of your married lives together, Lorna gives you her top tips on choosing the perfect wedding band.
1. Start your search early. Give yourself at least three months to find your perfect wedding ring, and try on as many styles as possible. Girls - remember to try the rings against your engagement ring.
2. Think of your lifestyle. Once it’s on your finger you’ll probably never take it off, so considering your lifestyle is a good idea. For example, palladium is very light and hard wearing – great if you have a job that involves any manual labour.
3. Match the metals. We always recommend that you match the metals of your wedding and engagement rings. This is so that they wear naturally together and so won’t look visually different in years to come.
4. Think of the design. You will have your wedding ring for life, so choose a timeless design that won’t date. You’ll want to love it as much on your 60th wedding anniversary as on your first.
5. Set a budget. Like your wedding photos, your rings are the one item that you will have for life after your wedding day. It’s really worth investing in a wedding ring that will stand the test of time.
Next month... Lorna reveals her bridesmaid’s style. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for a chance to choose which earrings they wear on the big dayShop Wedding Rings
