Divorce and jewellery


Wedding jewellery is an emotional and sometimes high value investment in ones’ life and represent symbols of one’s love. Oops! but what happens with your engagement and wedding rings after divorce?

It is important to decide the worth of the engagement, wedding rings, jewellery gifts and watches because If the jewellery pieces has a high value compared to other assets it may make the overall  financial settlement difficult to do.

The UK legislation under  Section 3(2) of  the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1970 (2) states  that the gift of an engagement ring shall be presumed to be an absolute gift; this presumption may be rebutted by proving that the ring was given on the condition, express or implied, that it should be returned if the marriage did not take place for any reason. 

Katie Holmes got to  keep her jewellery following her divorce to Tom Cruise and Princess Diana kept her jewellery after divorce to Prince Charles.

There are some engagement rings considered  as family heirlooms  that family members pass down for generations. The husband’s family line might want the family heirloom back. However, this conception is hard to impose, as the word heirloom is not  defined in UK law.

A  prenuptial agreement will help reduce disputes over heirlooms and jewellery etc, if the marriage ends.

Top five tips on how to start a jewellery business



I remember when I started my jewellery business and how difficult it was with no formal qualifications In the jewellery trade or friends that were experience in the field. I have learnt through my experiences  in the jewellery industry in the UK for many years.

(1) To start any jewellery business you need to have a passion because when you start you might not make any  money and your passion will sustain you through hard times. 

(2) it’s worth learning either by going back to college, university, adult course, one off courses, reading through books or audiobooks or e-books. Learning helps you to net work with people of likes minds, learn a new technique, get support and learn to be an expert in your field. It is important to know what area you want to specialise in for example, designer market, jewellery  buyer, diamonds setters  or gemstone buyers, diamond grader, e.t.c

(3) Join a jewellery association like British Jeweller Association or Craft Central. This will help you with marketing tools, trade shows, copy right schemes, mentoring and events in the jewellery industry.

(4)  Start small but think big. For example, getting friends to help design your website, getting friends to sponsor your collection instead of getting a loan(I’m not really keen on starting a business with loans especially because the jewellery business is saturated  and you might not make money as you might expect). 

(5) Identify your unique selling points.  It is important to know what is unique about your brand and tell your story through branding. 

Motivation tools to remember

  • Vision is the end results before you sell it(Sell your vision to your self first);
  • All things are possible just start small;
  • Plaining is not the same as doing. You need to plan and take actions(Don’t just dream)and
  • Surround yourself with reasons why you want to be successful.
