This stunning ring is a platinum pear shaped diamond, which is framed with a single row halo ring and made in beautiful platinum. The ring also features shoulders which are adorned with smaller diamonds. Those with an inclination towards non-traditional styles can opt for a more unusual cut like this pear cut diamond or marquise cut diamond. Pear shapes are also ideal for fancy diamonds, otherwise known as coloured diamonds, as they bring out hues better. Find out more on this ring in the blog post.

This beautiful diamond wedding band has a different take on the traditional band. Most bands are just metal, but for those looking for both sparkle and simplicity can look for this style. A ring of small diamonds is placed on the side of the ring. This allows for the plain band to show on top. Find out more in this blog post.

Another great bespoke ring we created for a client. This is a beautiful channel set bespoke ring with a stunning row of diamonds. A channel setting is a type of mounting in which the diamonds are set into a channel made from two metal strips. The stones set in such a way form a row and can run along the entire band of the ring.

Another unusual piece, this is a brilliant cut diamond solitaire in North-South-East-West four claw setting with twist shoulders. This is a relatively new four-claw style for a round brilliant cut diamond. A North-South-East-West positioning of the claw brings out more of a circular look from the diamond compared to the usual four-claw which gives more of a squarish look. It’s entirely up to preference as both settings allow for plenty of light to shine through the diamond for that extra sparkle. The other usual feature is the twist shoulders, which create a beautiful, floral, elegant feel to the jewellery piece. Whilst this one pictured is made in platinum, it can be made with any precious metals, such as gold. Such a piece would be a great choice for those looking for something different in an engagement ring.
