When we were contacted by our customer recently to create her engagement ring we had no idea how popular the ring would prove to be with our followers.
Morganite engagement rings have been very popular for a while (read our “Ultimate Guide to Morganite“) and this beautiful engagement ring with its delicate pink centre stone looks like they will continue to be popular over the coming years.
The band was created in 18ct white gold with a 1.52ct centre stone. The morganite was surrounded by 16 small round brilliant diamonds (total diamond weigh 0.25ct) in a halo setting. Once delivered to the customer the ring was then on its way to Zanzibar for the proposal.
Many of today’s brides embrace the tradition of “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” on their wedding day. The tradition originally signified the bride walking up the aisle with new items that corresponded to each line but we have applied the age-old rhyme to that very special piece of jewellery – the engagement ring.
Halo style engagement rings are rising in popularity and sit a very close second to the eternally popular single solitaire ring.
The halo engagement ring is a setting where a centre stone is surrounded by several much smaller diamonds (often pave set). The centre stone looks as if it wearing a halo hence the name. The halo engagement ring was designed specifically to enhance the brilliance and size of the centre stone.
When you start to try on rings you will soon realise that what looks good in the display cabinet might not look quite as good on your finger. We tend to say that choosing a ring for your finger is similar to choosing the right dress for your figure and it might take a while to find out what suits you best. Here is our guide to finding the perfect engagement ring style for you:
One of the things we absolutely love is hearing from our customers and it’s never better than hearing the story of how a couple became engaged using one of our engagement rings.
We were originally contacted in March 2015 by Chris who was looking for a beautiful engagement ring for his girlfriend Michelle.
We quickly established that the centre stone would be morganite and from there we worked together to decide that the ring would include diamonds on a scalloped band and the metal would be rose gold (rose gold works beautifully with morganite).
What are your thoughts on heart shaped jewellery?
Lady Gaga started a trend last year when she debuted her huge heart shaped diamond engagement ring on her Instagram account. Since then various imitations have popped up we think a lot of them can end up looking… well… a bit naff.
Heart shaped jewellery, when done properly, can be one of the most beautiful and romantic pieces of jewellery.
