Discover How To Choose Your Engagement Ring

The Style

The style of your engagement ring or the engagement ring you are choosing defines its overall appearance and is often the first thing many of our clients consider.

Our collections include classic solitaires set with or without diamond shoulders, romantic trilogy rings and a small selection of intricate and unusual cluster designs. These three styles encompass a wealth of different designs from antique or traditional through to modern and contemporary. 

The Diamond

The most popular stone for an engagement ring is a white diamond but, of course, anything is possible. Our diamond and gemstone buyer responsibly selects only the highest quality precious stones for each of our engagement rings, bespoke designs and special commissions, individually assessing each diamond that is considered.

When selecting a diamond for your ring, the most important criteria to consider is the cut or shape, colour, clarity, carat weight and certification of your diamond. Our team will always provide a selection of the very best stones your budget can buy, making suggestions and alterations wherever needed.

Crafting Our Collection

From an initial design to a finished engagement ring, each stage of our process takes place at 8 Ely Place, our London workshop. Every ring that leaves the house is accompanied by a ‘Made in London’ seal as a mark of its quality and craftsmanship and to ensure every design is made to last a lifetime.

A Bespoke Design

Sophie Lomax, Head of Jewellery Design, leads our design team in creating classic and timeless special commissions for our clients’ most special moments including many wonderful and unique engagement rings. Our bespoke design service ensures the possibilities are endless and you can truly create something which embodies your loved ones personality and style.
