County Limerick is a county located in the midwest of Ireland, known for its rich history, charming towns and beautiful landscapes. The county seat and largest city is Limerick City, a vibrant and historic city that is home to a wide variety of cultural, artistic and educational institutions. Other notable towns in County Limerick include Castleconnell, Adare, and Kilmallock.

One of the county’s major attractions is the King John’s Castle, a 13th-century fortress located on the banks of the River Shannon that offers a glimpse into the rich history of the city. Another must-see destination is the Lough Gur, an ancient lake that is home to a wide range of historical and archaeological sites, including a prehistoric settlement, stone circles, and standing stones. Additionally, County Limerick is known for its picturesque countryside, the charming small towns and villages such as Bruff and Pallasgreen, and for the Limerick City of Culture in 2014, celebrating the local culture and heritage.

What are the most popular diamond shapes in Limerick?

The shape of a diamond refers to the overall outline or silhouette of the stone, while the cut refers to the proportions, symmetry, and polish of the diamond. The shape of a diamond can greatly affect its appearance and how it sparkles and shines.

The fire and shine of a diamond refer to the rainbow-like flashes of color that are visible when the diamond is moved or viewed from different angles. The fire and shine of a diamond are affected by the cut and overall quality of the diamond, not just the shape. A well-cut diamond will have a higher level of fire and shine, regardless of its shape.

Neil & Laura from Limerick's Engagement Ring

Here at Bespoke Diamonds, we have customers coming to us from far and wide in search of their perfect ring. Last week was no different when we met Laura and Neil from Adare, Co. Limerick who came to us after months of searching around their locality for a ring but to no avail. Laura had a clear vision of what she wanted and when she couldn’t the exact ring she wanted in Limerick, she came to us.

Limerick Couple Seeking the Perfect Diamond Engagement Ring

Laura is an avid user of Pinterest and had seen her dream engagement ring online. She wanted a classic style three stone  with a high setting and a white gold head. Although, she had shopped around many jewellers in Limerick, she had yet to see one that would meet her exact requirements.

So, Neil and Laura made the long trip all the way from Limerick. She had seen on the website a ring that she liked and was hoping it would meet her requirements. During the appointment, Laura tried on the three stone engagement ring TR1025 and it was almost the perfect ring. Laura wanted the setting to be just that little bit higher and for the carat weight to be adjusted.  Our team of designers were happy to make these amendments and 4 weeks later the ring was ready to be collected.

Breakout Trends in Engagement Rings for 2023

Who Chooses the Engagement Ring?

Couples Together vs Man/One Partner

More couples choosing an engagement ring in Limerick come in together rather than having one partner pick the ring. This can be a practical solution and ensures that the receiver of the ring will love it. However, our “Love it or Return it” guarantee* gives partners the confidence to choose on their own should they want to (if the receiver of the ring would like to change the ring within 100 days, we will take the ring back in exchange for another design or custom design.
We do notice that this varies around the country and particularly in country towns and rural areas.

Limerick-Who chooses the engagement ring

Natural Diamond vs Lab Grown Diamond

This year we have seen a huge swing towards lab grown diamonds and Cavan is no exception. In recent years, people have chosen lab grown diamonds for various reasons including sustainability, ethical reasons and their lower price. We see this trend continuing next year and also expect lab grown gemstones and lab grown coloured diamonds to make their mark too. Not included in this figure are Moissanite Engagement Rings which we have seen increase in sales again this year.
