Marriage Proposals with a Festive Cheer

At West Weddings, we absolutely love this time of year – the holiday cheer, romantic winter backdrops and extra special presents under the tree. It’s a well known fact that December is the busiest month of the year for marriage proposals but planning how to pop the question is not the easiest when you want it to be special. To give our future grooms – and brides – a helping hand, we’ve found the ultimate Christmas gift.

Jewellery designer Karl Karter and Baileys Chocolat Luxe have teamed up to produce a unique Five Gold Rings jewellery creation and the new limited edition gold bottle of Baileys chocolate drink.
Five Gold Rings
KarlKarter, the London-based jeweller known for his flawless, hand-made fine jewellery, and whose fans include the likes of Jessie J, Alesha Dixon and Eliza Doolittle, has created five Baileys Chocolat Luxe-inspired one-off, luxurious gold rings in time for Christmas. Each of the custom-made Five Gold Rings pieces features both yellow and rose gold and studded with exquisite precious gems to make any woman feel special.
Designed in a luxurious style with timeless yet indulgent and intricate filigree detailing, the 16 carat gold rings feature rich chocolate brown diamonds and sparkling whiskey sapphires. The stunning bespoke pieces are valued at approximately £1,000 each.

The Five Gold Rings celebrate the groundbreaking drink turning its bottle gold in celebration of the festive season.
“The drink is a decadent fusion of real Belgian chocolate and Irish whiskey cream, so I wanted to make sure these rings captured a real sense of indulgence and glamour that oozes from the liquid and limited edition gold bottle design. Every woman desires a beautiful piece of jewellery and that’s what we’ve tried to capture in these pieces,” Karl Karter explains.
Contemporary creations
Karl creates custom-made contemporary jewellery using striking shapes and exquisite stones – working at the intersection of art and fashion. Karl is truly passionate about the relationship between design and pattern, each piece being created with unrivalled precision. 

With almost 20-years experience in the jewellery business, Karl enjoys working with timeless shapes and styles from a wide range of inspirations, most specifically Mayan and Aztec ornaments right through to 1920s Art Deco chic.

As well as running his own shop and studio – the charismatic, charming and passionate designer leads the London Rocks collective. A showcase of London Rocks’ work can be seen in an exclusive boutique in London’s Hatton Garden.
A taste of luxury
BaileysChocolat Luxe was created by Anthony Wilson, the principal scientist at Diageo and son of the man who led the team behind Baileys Original Irish Cream.

Travelling over three continents to personally taste the world’s finest chocolate – 200 varieties in all – Wilson worked tirelessly to crack the previously unfathomable code to create a fusion that would see chocolate perfectly mixed with Baileys Original Irish Cream.
