Are you searching for an engagement ring that combines unique modern fashion with timeless beauty and classic style? 

With our help you can design a bespoke ring with qualities that merge modern values with tradition, creating an engagement ring unlike any other. 

In our experience, colour, cut and traditional considerations are the three key things to keep in mind when customising a ring to reflect your personality and individual style. 



Colour can be a great way to add a splash of individuality to any design. It showcases unique taste and offers it’s wearer life-long sentiment.  

The Sapphire Engagement Ring continues to remain a popular choice amongst brides-to-be, with blue and pink sapphires remaining the most popular choices. Perfect for the modern-bride, a coloured sapphire ring can make a great alternative to the classic diamond. 

Remember, that choosing a coloured gem can potentially influence the pricing of your ring, so be sure to do some research or contact a professional jeweller for a consultation to discuss yours or your partners dream ring.




For the modern bride, there are a wide variety of shapes to choose from when selecting the perfect engagement ring.

The Round Brilliant Cut is the epitome of classic, timeless grace. Delivering maximum light and shine with its proportional shape, it’s been loved by brides-to-be for centuries.

 Asscher, Radiant, and Emerald cuts have also been very popular this season.


Traditional Considerations

 The pear shaped ring is fantastic for those seeking engagement jewellery that unites the modern styles of today with the romanticism of the 1900s.

Another option with a traditional influence is to rework an old piece of jewellery that has been passed down through generations. A reworked heirloom ring is a wonderful way to put a contemporary twist on a vintage piece of jewellery. By fusing a family treasure with something completely new, an heirloom ring can look magnificent and also hold a huge amount of sentimental value.
