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:
It’s fair to say that we see plenty of diamonds on a daily basis. They never fail to delight but sometimes you hear of a diamond that is a little larger than the ones we use in our engagement rings.
Just two weeks ago a diamond weighing in excess of 400ct was mined in Angola. This incredible stone measures three inches and is virtually flawless.
We recently created a beautiful three stone diamond engagement ring for one of our customers who is based in Paris. Three stone rings are a timeless design and we are seeing more and more of them in the last year largely due to their symbolism and significance.
The three stone diamond engagement ring design was originally created by DeBeers and the three diamonds are said to symbolize the past, present and future love.
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.
