I had a starring role in the showroom yesterday and I’m quite proud of myself. Not to put a too fine a point on it if it wasn’t for me I’m not sure the client would have purchased.

In any event he did and this is what he said about me……..

‘Hi Stephen,

Many thanks for your help today.   Your service is impeccable, but I hope you don’t mind me saying that I think Molly is your greatest asset!  Whatever she’s selling, I’m buying.  I have attached the photo I took of her today.

Good or what !!!!’IMG_5120.JPG


Six claw solitaire diamond engagement ring.


If you have decided to go for a classic style engagement ring, the six claw setting could be for you. The claws follow the shape of the round diamond so as to excentuate the shape. More classic styles in the past had anything from eight prongs.

If you prefer the four claw setting this can be the more modern setting as it gives the Round Brilliant Cut diamond a square appearance.

If square is not your thing but you want a four claw setting, as you want to see more of the diamond then a ‘North, South, East, West’ claw configuration might be a good option. The four claw setting is spun around on the point and immediately the square appearance disappears and we can see the round shape again.

Many people assume the six claw setting is more secure.

This can be true depending on how the ring is made.

However, at Arlington & Co. we make our four claw prongs slightly thicker than the six claw prongs. Therefore, you can choose from less but slightly thicker claws or more but slightly thinner claws. So both settings are as secure as each other.

At Arlington it is a choice between styles.



Me again.

It’s amazing how quickly things can change. One day I’ve nothing to do but keep one eye open just in case and then the next day it’s all paws to the pump.
We were so busy that I even had to socialise with the clients. Normally all I have to do is walk around looking pretty but yesterday, as you can see it’s serious networking.
I needed a really good doze at the end of the day. In fact I feel another one coming on right now.

By for now,

Hi All,

Sorry for not posting for a few days but it’s been surprisingly quiet at Arlington recently.
I’ve decided to keep an eye on things in the showroom rather than the office and this is the perfect location.
It’s also very comfortable should I decide to rest my eyes for half an hour or so.
If anything happens I’ll be sure to let you all know.

All the Best,

Canine in Residence.

‘Morning all,

I was taken for a lovely walk in the park early this morning, quite a few of my pals were there so we has a good old run around.

All was going swimmingly until we all decided to investigate this quite large puddle in the middle of the football pitch.

Needless to say I was somewhat late for work due to my unscheduled bath.

Have decided to keep my head down for the rest of the day as Mr B, my owner’s husband, is not best pleased with my antics this morning.

I’ll let you know if anything exciting.
