The Jewellery

First up is the gold and brown diamond cuff from Alex Orso. At £270 the 3.5mm square gold and brown diamond cuff is cast in solid Sterling Silver, and plated in 22kt Gold. Available in 2 sizes, the cuff features a 1.8mm square brown diamond, discretely fitted flush into one end. The inside surface and edges of the cuff have a high polish, while the outside surface has a brushed satin finish. The product features Goldsmith’s Company hallmarks.

Alex Orso diamonds are sourced through suppliers who comply with The Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council System of Warranties. The brown tinge of the brown diamond is very subtle making the stone look almost completely clear.

A mini break in Devon at the Glazebrook House Boutique Hotel

Craig takes a mini break in Devon at Glazebrook House, one of its most luxurious and quirky boutique Hotels.

Sometimes things in life happen for a reason. Often those reasons are unknown to us, and the journey there is beyond our control. We call it fate.

Hearing the story of how Glazebrook House Hotel turned from a tired country hotel, on it’s knees, in need of love and a new spirit to elevate it to the stunning boutique Hotel it is today is truly magical.

“Do you believe in fate?” I asked owner Pieter Hamman. “Yes” he replied, without hesitation. And it’s clear after talking to him why. People may think that Pieter chose Glazebrook House. No. Glazebrook House chose Pieter. He had absolutely no say in the matter, and it was always meant to be.
