We want you to love your engagement ring, and have profiled our most iconic engagement ring styles and why they are the perfect fusion of beautiful design, diamonds and craftsmanship.


Solitaire Engagement Rings



A solitaire diamond ring is by far the most popular engagement ring . The word “solitaire” is used to describe one single diamond or gemstone that is set into a ring, or another piece of jewelry. The solitaire ring consists of two parts – a diamond, and a setting. There are many kinds of solitaire ring settings. No matter what the personal preference is, there’s always the perfect diamond solitaire ring out there.


The solitaire diamond engagement ring is known for holding the ultimate statement of elegance and tradition. A classic diamond, solitaire engagement ring will never go out of style!


Halo Engagement Rings –


A Halo Engagement Ring is a design that surrounds the centre diamond with a ring or ‘halo’ of smaller diamonds.


With a scintillating halo of brilliant diamonds and a striking round centre stone, light is gathered and mirrored throughout the design, resulting in an unrivaled display of brilliance. ⁠


Halo settings are beautiful, popular, and a great way to maximise your budget. A halo adds sparkle to any setting and can make a centre diamond seem much bigger. When it comes to a halo engagement ring, you have no shortage of options. Here are some particular concerns you should consider before buying.


Different Halo styles available –

  • Plain shank halo engagement ring: A total classic. An elegant polished band arcs gently up to the diamond and its halo, ensuring the centre stone gets all the attention!
  • Split shank halo engagement ring: The band of the engagement ring splits as it approaches the centre stone and halo. This style is popular because it creates more drama with eye-catching accent diamonds.
  • Pave halo engagement ring: Pave accent diamonds only extend partway down the shank of the ring. It’s the sweet spot between extra sparkle and timeless elegance.
  • Double halo engagement ring: A dazzling way to save some dough. It’s more expensive than a single halo setting, but the added accent diamonds cost much less than a large center stone. Since the single halo can make your diamond look a half-carat bigger, you’re looking at up to a whole carat increase.

Trilogy Engagement Rings –


Often referred to as trinity or three stone engagement rings, trilogy engagement rings feature just that–three gemstones or diamonds, each one symbolising the past, present and future.


The trilogy is a versatile style that most frequently sees a larger centre stone, with slightly smaller stones flanking either side.


Diamond Band Engagement Rings –


Why do the diamonds have to stop at one! There is an important term used in the language of diamonds, referred to as scintillation. Scintillation is sparkle. Scintillation is the play of white and coloured flashes of light seen when a diamond or diamonds are viewed in motion. Our Diamond Band Engagement Rings encapsulate just this, scintillation at its finest!


The hero diamond and diamonds in the band complement each other resulting in an overall, outstanding brilliance. This design is perfect for the person who wants a classic design but a little more diamond than offered in a solitaire design.
