ENGAGEMENT RINGS

Given to symbolise a promise and a commitment, an engagement ring should be selected carefully. As our jewellery tells its own unique story, so do our engagement rings: Worn on the fourth finger of the left hand, the ancient Egyptians believed that there was a vein in this specific finger which led directly to the heart.

This is why an engagement ring is more than just a piece of jewellery – it is a symbol of your love and should be deliberately and thoughtfully selected.

The choice of gem or diamond to put in your ring is vast, and whether you choose a simple yet beautiful colourless diamond, or prefer more colourful options, we’ll help you with your perfect fit.

Keep in mind that when choosing the perfect ring, you need to consider her personality and lifestyle. No two people are alike, and neither are our engagement rings. If you have difficulty making a decision and don’t want to go the traditional route, then speak to one of our skilful designers, who will expertly craft your vision into a sparkling, beautiful custom-designed ring.

Traditional

A solitaire setting is elegant and classic. It predominantly features one diamond on the band itself. This simple and timeless design is often one of the more popular when it comes to engagement rings. Over the years, the three stone engagement ring has become increasingly popular.

Pavé

As the name suggests, this setting is literally paved with diamonds around the centre piece. The diamonds are set close together so that the band beneath cannot be seen and wonderfully highlights the centre diamond. This setting, also referred to as a bead setting, is spectacular, as the sparkle and brilliance reflected from this row is simply breath-taking.

Bar

Not to be confused with the channel setting, however, similar in design, the bar setting features a row of diamonds but does not enclose these, instead leaving these exposed at the sides. The highlight of this setting is that it offers great visibility of the diamonds on the band.

Halo

While very similar to the traditional style, the Halo engagement ring often adds an extra ring of smaller diamonds around the centre diamond. This type of setting holds the diamond higher which creates the illusion of a bigger centre diamond.

Channel

This setting features a row (or channel) of diamonds into the actual band itself and can either run around the whole band or sit either side of the centre diamond. This is a very secure design and is often snag-free – ideal for those with an active lifestyle.

Bezel

Contemporary in design, this setting features a thin metal ring which encircles the diamond – this creates a sleek and elegant appearance.

Tension

What makes this design so unique is that the diamond is often suspended between two sides of the band. Light reflection is enhanced because of the design, and gives the owner a more modern and ultra-stylish look.

Flush

Here, the diamond sits flush in the band. This is achieved by placing it within a drilled hole in the band itself. This is often seen as a preferred choice on men’s wedding rings.

Cathedral

Appropriately named, this setting mimics the graceful arches of a cathedral with its arches of metal holding the diamond in place. This design accentuates the diamond while offering a secure fit.

Antique

This type of settings predominantly feature filigree, milgrain or scrollwork patterns accompanied by delicate bands. The design of these rings involves intricate and detailed work, which is what makes them so loved by those who select them.

Cluster

In line with its name, the cluster setting groups or clusters many smaller diamonds together either creating the impression of a large diamond, or the grouping around a larger diamond in the centre of the band.
