Welcome to The Story Behind The Shine - the official blog for Michael Hill International. Follow us on our journey of making jewellery that makes women around the globe shine. 


There really is nothing else quite like it.
We read more books, watch more films
and listen to more songs about it than anything else.
It quickens the heart, lights the soul and makes us whole.

It occurred to us that everything we do is for love.

The wedding bands we make, aren’t just beautifully
crafted gold rings, they are declarations of love.
The engagement rings are not so much diamonds
and precious metals, but more symbols of that 
achingly beautiful moment when someone puts 
aside fear and self doubt and grasps courage 
and boldness to profess their love and offer
you their heart.

Jewellery is a mark of love, it says someone
loves you, even if that someone is yourself.

When given it’s an expression of love.
Young love, old love, motherly love, straight love,
gay love, forbidden love, brotherly love, it seals
love, nurtures, creates, kindles and declares love
for all the world to see.

We don’t care what kind of love
you’re into, we just want to make
sure you get your fair share.

Michael Hill.

We’re for Love.
