Four Claw Brilliant Cut Diamond

A wonderful jewellery piece, this is a four claw brilliant cut diamond ring. This is a perfect design for those looking for something to highlight a solitaire diamond or just an unfussy design. The four claw setting allows for plenty of light to shine through the diamond, giving the maximum potential for sparkle. This draws the focus all on the centre stone and is great for making the most out of the diamond. Read on to find out more.

Platinum Pear Shaped Diamond Ring

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.

Four Claw Setting With Twist Shoulders

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.

Brilliant Cut Diamond Bracelet

This is a beautiful diamond tennis bracelet. Each individual brilliant cut diamond is held securely in place by 4 prongs. A 4 prong bracelet is a nice balance between security and letting in light. The more light that can pass through a diamond, the more likely it will sparkle as you wear it. Find out more about this beautiful piece in this post.

Solitaire Diamond Set In A Crossover

This is a beautiful, brilliant cut diamond solitaire in a crossover setting. A great jewellery piece, this would suit both large and smaller diamond carats. The dainty, clean look of the setting highlights the diamond solitaire, no matter the size. This makes for a very versatile and accommodating ring design that will suit many different budgets.

Princess Diamond Cathedral Set Ring

This is a beautiful diamond ring with a distinctive cathedral setting. The cathedral setting is one of the most elegant, classic and popular engagement ring settings. Similar to the cathedral arches it uses arches of metal to support and securely hold the centre diamond or coloured gemstone. The centre stone can be set with prongs, bezel, tension or basket design and it can sit low or high above the arches. It’s defining characteristic is not how the centre stone is held but rather how the mounting is built and how the shank and the arches are relating. The cathedral engagement ring setting got its name because as the name implies, it’s shape mimics the grace and elegance of a cathedral.

Oval Diamond In A Crossover Setting

A really distinctive piece of jewellery, this is an oval cut diamond in crossover diamond setting. The beautiful centre diamond is held in with four prongs, which is a nice alternative to the traditional round cut diamond. However, what really makes this piece stand out is the crossover setting, which curves around the finger, before joining back towards the diamond. The curve is then highlighted with smaller diamonds placed along the band.

Marquise Diamond Ring With Shoulders

This is a stunning marquise diamond ring, also sometimes referred to as the “Navette” shape, meaning “little boat,” as the shape of the diamond is said to mirror the hull of a small boat. This diamond is set in a beautiful platinum ring and held in by four claws and has smaller diamonds running along its shoulders.
