A Christmas Proposal

Is a Christmas proposal in the works but you are just not sure what ring she will love?  Well, look no further than our sparkling counters as we have you covered.

Diamond engagement rings are the heart and soul of Minichiello Jewellers and they are what we do best.  We pride ourselves on our beautiful designs, impeccable diamond quality and expert craftsmanship.  Our in-house engagement rings include a large variety of different diamond shapes including the classic round brilliant cut diamond, the popular oval shape diamond, the lovely cushion shape, the elegant emerald cut and the perfect princess, just to name a few!  All of these diamond shapes and more are available in many colours and karats of gold and if you don't see exactly what you are looking for, we also offer custom design.

Custom design is also our strong suit as our goldsmiths can create  virtually any design you can dream of.  We will guide you through the custom design process starting from the initial design and sketch phase, moving onto the wax mock-up of the desired design, through to casting of the metal, setting of the diamonds and to the final finishing touches.  Every step a check point to make sure that the final ring is exactly what you were dreaming of.

We love what we do at Minichiello's and we hope you will too.  And this is the perfect reason why our diamond engagement rings are the 12th pick for our favourite holiday gift list this year.  Happy shopping!



Always a classic

Always a classic are our beautiful diamond stud earrings and this timelessness definitely makes them our 11th pick for our favourite holiday gist list this year.

Available in many different diamond sizes, colours of gold and price ranges there is a perfect pair for everyone.  You can also choose your favourite setting style from among the classic four-claw set to the new three claw, martini style setting.  And what makes them even greater is that with every diamond stud purchase, we offer a lifetime of diamond upgrading.  This means, if you start at one diamond size and over the years would like to go bigger, we will give you a credit for exactly what you originally spent and you can put that towards your purchase of a bigger pair.  It is the gift that keeps on giving!

Another fun thing that you can do with these classic diamond stud earrings is add an interchangeable diamond jacket to up the sparkle factor.  We have pictured here two examples of what this beautiful jacket looks like.  All you do is simply insert your diamond stud into the center of the diamond jacket and voila!  A little extra sparkle for a little extra pizzazz this holiday season.

A diamond cluster must

Our tenth jewellery item on our favourite holiday gift list this year has to be the diamond cluster ring.  The diamond cluster ring is loved and adored by so many for its incredible sparkle and brilliance amongst the many diamonds it incorporates in each design.  These three diamond cluster rings pictured are definitely a diamond cluster must and there is more from where they came from too!

A diamond cluster ring is a great idea for an engagement ring, a promise ring, or for a ring that will knock her socks off.  Each diamond cluster is made up of tiny, round brilliant cut diamonds that are expertly set to minimize metal but maximize sparkle.  The finished product is a seamless cluster of brilliance that will sparkle in any light.  Choose from small, medium and large diamond clusters, there is a design, size and price range for just about anyone.

Come by and check out our beautiful selection of diamond cluster rings this holiday season.  I promise they are even more stunning in person and simply, will not disappoint!


Arm Candy

Is your loved one asking for a little arm candy this holiday season?  Then look no further than our ninth favourite holiday gift list item this year.  We have a lot of gorgeous diamond arm candy to choose from and these designs are only just a few!

We fell in love with this dainty diamond bracelet trend a few years ago at the New York jewellery show and new designs keep on coming.  It is a great alternative to the traditional diamond tennis bracelet that has been a jewellery staple for many lucky ladies over the years.  This new dainty diamond bracelet is a little more versatile, as the diamonds are smaller in nature making its wearability factor all day long.  You can pair them with your favourite watch, pair them with another bracelet and even pair them with a funky bangle to really mix things up.

And you know it is a personal favourite when every Minichiello girl wears one.  I happen to have the straight, micro pave set bar bracelet, my sister has the slightly oval-shaped, diamond pave disc design and my mom wears the pave bar just like myself.  It's a design we can't get enough of and one that most definitely had to be on our list.

Available in white gold, yellow gold and rose gold too, these dainty diamond bracelets would make the perfect arm candy gift this holiday season.


Stunning in sterling silver

It is time for our eighth favourite holiday gift list item this year and I am excited to share with you our most popular earring of 2016.  These beautiful, sterling silver ear huggers were a hit from the moment we received them and their popularity is still going strong.  And I think it's pretty easy to see why!

Our sterling silver ear huggers were an exciting discovery from our annual trip to the Las Vegas jewellery show.  We knew the moment we spotted them that they had major style and that we just had to have them.  Available in sterling silver, yellow gold-plated or rose gold-plated there is a colour for everyone.  And priced at $100, they are sure to fit nicely into the holiday budget planning too!

I personally own a sterling silver pair and I love how they can go from day to night so easily!  They are a current staple in my jewellery box and they snag a complement, or two, or three, every time I wear them.

If you have someone on your gift list that would love a little sparkle and style, I think these sterling silver ear huggers are a great place to start!
