Your Chosen Design Explained...

At Prestons we understand that choosing a piece of jewellery is a very personal decision. Here we explore the individual elements of your chosen design and how they combine to create the value and beauty of this incredible piece.

A Solitaire Style

The solitaire is considered one of the most classic jewellery designs. In each instance, a singular diamond or precious stone is hand-selected to be the centerpiece of your chosen design. The gemstone, or gemstones, you select to create a solitaire pendant or solitaire pair of ear studs could be an array of different cuts or shapes based upon your existing jewellery pieces or your own personal style. The most traditional setting for this particular style is the classic four or six claw which truly allows the brilliance of your chosen gemstone to shine and sparkle through.

The Marquise Cut

The marquise cut diamond was originally created in the 1700s by the jeweller of King Louis XV. The cut was commissioned to epitomise the lips of his beloved mistress Jean Antoinette Poisson, the Marchioness Madame de Pompadour. The marquise cut is often referred to as the ‘Navette’ cut, which translates from French into ‘little boat’, perfectly describing the unique and distinct elongated shape of each marquise cut stone. It is most often set with v-claws either side to protect the vulnerable pointed edges and is today a popular choice for an engagement ring in either a solitaire or halo style.
