Top 5 classic engagement rings with a twist
There is just so much to consider from colour, cut and carat weight, to the clarity of the stone. And even if you have decided that, then the question of the style remains. Should you go old school with a white gold band and a brilliant cut stone, or go on a completely different path and choose an extremely extravagant ring that looks nothing like that. Maybe you prefer option C, where you get something custom made for him/ her; a bespoke piece (we can do that for you too).
However, since the options are literally limitless we decided to pick out our top 5 classic engagement rings but, with a twist. This way, you get the best of both worlds; classic and a dash of the unconventional.
NO. 1- GREEN TOURMALINE LONG RING BY ARA VARTANIAN
The ring below is designed in 18k white gold, and is set with a rectangular green tourmaline, with triangular white diamonds bordering each of its sides. Wear to turn heads.
NO. 2- JUNO RING BY SPINELLI KILCOLLIN
The Galaxy Rings by Spinelli Kilcollin are always a good idea (and not just as engagement rings). However, this one in particular we believe is the perfect one for this occasion. The Juno Ring actually takes its inspiration from the mythical marriage of Greek gods Juno and Jupiter, with the rings signifying the history of commitment. The three rings are designed in 18k white and yellow gold, with one of the rings embellished with white diamonds, and connected by 18k yellow gold.
NO. 3- DIAMOND BAGUETTE BAND BY FOUNDRAE
Fashioned in 18k yellow gold and coated with white enamel, this band is inscribed with the words “If Not Now Then When.” At the centre of this talismanic ring sits a white baguette- cut diamond, for a regal effect. The perfect combination between edgy and classic.
NO. 4- CRYSTAL RING BY POLLY WALES
In this medium width ring, green ombre sapphires are deep set within a band of 18k yellow gold. In case you didn't know Polly Wales uses a very special technique when she makes jewellery, the only one of it's kind, called 'Cast- not- Set'. What a special ring this would be for your significant other. In case you want to read more about her technique by the way, click here.
NO. 5- RADIATE DIAMONDS RING BY YANNIS SERGAKIS ADORNMENTS
With its pretty, bow-like shape, this design makes a delicately beautiful engagement ring. Part of Yannis Sergakis’ La Pierre collection, the ring is designed in 18k yellow and black gold, and set with one large diamond at its center, surrounded by smaller diamonds.
