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 Halo Style

A halo design is one of the most popular designs for those looking for brilliance or sparkle. In most instances, it will feature one predominantly larger central stone, of any cut or colour, and will be surrounded by a delicate row or halo of much smaller diamonds. These could be, for example, round brilliant cut diamonds which add a subtle or delicate shimmer to decorate the piece of jewellery. This design is similar to that of a cluster, only the surrounding stones are much smaller in the halo, serving to compliment the central stone.

The Emerald Cut

The emerald cut dates back to the 1500s when stone cutters first began the journey to create what is now amongst one of the most popular fancy cuts. This particular cut oozes elegance due to its dramatic hall of mirror or stepped effect facets. The shape is often less fiery than a round brilliant cut but often tends to have wider and more dramatic flashes of light. The emerald cut is known for its steep cut pavilion and its large open table, often accentuating a diamond’s clarity, making cuts with supreme clarity more desirable.

A Claw Setting

This traditional style setting sees your chosen gemstone set into carefully crafted metal prongs that securely protect and secure the stone or multiple stones. This classic setting sees your diamond often set high above the band of an engagement ring or earring setting ensuring your precious stone remains the centrepiece. This particular setting is often considered the most popular choice for a selection of jewellery styles as it showcases the true brilliance, colour and sparkle of a gemstone with a delicate or minimum amount of precious metal.

Platinum

The metals or materials we choose for our fine jewellery collections are equally as important as the memories they hold. This exquisite precious metal is often the most popular choice throughout our bridal jewellery collections. In most instances, platinum is considered when selecting an engagement ring, due to its durability, its finish and, most importantly, its natural silver-white colour. It is, however, important to note that due this incredible durability this particular metal is more challenging to mould and sculpt and is therefore seen less often in fancy jewellery pieces or intricate designs in pieces such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets
