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.

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.

White Gold

The metals or materials we choose for our fine jewellery collections are equally as important as the exceptional gemstones they hold. 18ct white gold is created by mixing gold with other precious metals that have a silvery-white colour to ensure its durability and strength. This particular precious metal is the most popular choice for fine jewellery pieces as the silvery-white colour allows the colour of the diamonds or gemstones to show through. It is, however, important to consider the natural colour of white gold. In order to achieve this silvery-white colour, this metal is plated in a luxurious substance called rhodium. This plating is highly reflective, adding shine, lustre and durability, but it is however just a coating and therefore white gold is often considered more suitable for jewellery pieces such as necklaces, earrings or bracelets.
