But worry not, as we are here to assist you both in-store and through our concierge service, providing expert guidance to help you make an informed decision.
Our engagement ring collection offers a wide range of style options, including solitaire, halo, three stone, and cluster designs. To provide you with additional insights into each style, we have created this comprehensive guide. By understanding the nuances of these styles, you will take the first step toward finding a ring perfect for your partner.
Choosing an engagement ring style involves considering various factors that can influence your decision. Each person has their own style preference, whether it leans toward classic, modern, or vintage aesthetics. To narrow down your options, take into account your partner's style. If they have a penchant for vintage attire, a contemporary diamond ring might not be the best choice.
Also, pay attention to their usual jewellery choices, such as the metals and stones they prefer. Lastly, if they draw inspiration from celebrity styles, researching the engagement rings worn by their favourite celebrities can guide you toward a similar style.
The setting of an engagement ring refers to how the gemstones are placed within the metal band. It can be categorized as either high or low profile, affecting the ring's appearance and how the stone sits on your finger. The setting choice not only impacts the diamond's visual appeal but also determines its wearability and practicality. Understanding the distinction between a high setting and a low setting can help you refine your search.
If you're unsure how to differentiate between the two, simply look at the bottom point (culet) of the centre stone from the side view. If it is elevated high off the band, it's a high-profile setting. On the other hand, if the diamond or gemstone sits closer to the band, it's a low-profile setting. If the ring's setting is an important style factor for you, we offer our own bespoke settings that you might fall in love with, such as the delicate and graceful Orchid setting, which wraps around the centre stone and sits flush on the finger, or the tall, modern, and elegant Tulip setting, elevating the centre stone above the finger like a Tulip's flower on its slender stem.
A timeless classic, the solitaire engagement ring embodies simple elegance, featuring a single, stand-alone diamond. This style emphasizes the true beauty of the centre stone, making it perfect for those with a minimalist yet chic aesthetic. If you appreciate timeless fashion that will never go out of style, the solitaire engagement ring is an ideal choice.
Building upon the solitaire design, the halo engagement ring adds an extra touch of glamour. It features a circular array of micro diamonds surrounding the centre diamond, providing additional sparkle.
This style has gained popularity due to its radiant appeal. For maximum visual impact, consider a double halo engagement ring, which combines two sets of circling diamonds, resulting in twice the sparkle. If you find the halo style captivating, our exclusive Northern Star range offers a beautiful selection of halo and double halo engagement rings to suit your preferences.
Also known as trilogy rings, three stone engagement rings symbolize love. This style showcases a trio of horizontal stones, with a center stone beautifully complemented by two identical stones on each side. Representing the past, present, and future of your relationship, this historic sentiment is imbued with modern elegance, making it ideal for those who appreciate a traditional aesthetic.
The three stones allow gemstones or diamonds to radiate through a continuous stream of light, creating a dazzling glow. This style suits individuals who prefer bold and eye-catching designs.
Cluster engagement ring feature an exquisite arrangement of delicate diamonds, forming a unique and stunning shape. These rings can incorporate various gemstones and come in finely crafted designs. Symbolizing fate and astrological beliefs, cluster rings resemble stars and possess a timeless vintage charm with a modern twist. A notable example is the blue sapphire cluster ring famously worn by Princess Diana. With a rich history in royal fashion, this style never fails to captivate.
We hope that this guide has given you a newfound confidence in selecting the perfect engagement ring style, one that will be cherished for a lifetime.
