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.
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.
We recently worked with a customer to create an engagement ring for her. This particular job was a little more unusual as we were using her own gold and diamonds which had been passed down to her from previous generations.
We had a round brilliant 0.39ct diamond to work with along with six smaller stones and both 9ct white and yellow gold.
The brief was to create a ring that was feminine, delicate and that complemented her beautiful twisted rope wedding band.
