So many people are aware of the quintessential engagement ring – a large brilliant cut diamond, placed gracefully atop a sleek and stylish yellow gold band. Although this combination does make for a truly beautiful piece of jewellery, there are always those who want something a bit different when custom-making their engagement rings. From stunning sapphire engagement rings to dazzling princess cut engagement rings, here are some of the ways that you can make your engagement ring truly special.
Choosing the cut
The cut is an extremely important thing to consider when designing a custom-made engagement ring, as it will determine how light is refracted by your engagement ring, and it will also need to compliment the rest of the piece. Around the world, many people pick a brilliant cut gemstone, as it is the quintessential gemstone cut, known for its opulent appearance and its uncontested ability to refract light.
However, there are many other cuts which provide very different effects to the ones exhibited by the brilliant cut. In recent years, oval cut engagement rings have seen a resurgence in popularity because of their beauty, their ability to refract light and the optical illusions that they can exhibit, such as making the fingers of the wearer appear longer.
Selecting the stone
Naturally, the other very important thing to consider when designing a custom-made engagement ring is the stone that will be gracing your perfect piece of jewellery. For many people, a diamond is the perfect centrepiece of any engagement ring. The beauty and grace of diamonds have captivated many people across the world for centuries.
But, for those who don’t want to indulge in the world of diamonds, there are many other stunning gemstones to choose from. In recent years, sapphires have become a very popular alternative to diamonds. Sapphire engagement rings have become more popular due to their ties with royalty and their ability to refract light through the dazzling spectrum of colours that sapphires can be found with.
At Armans Fine Jewellery, we wanted to create an engagement ring which captured the essence of sapphires, including their appreciation amongst royalty and their deep, awe-inspiring colours. We were able to harness this essence into an engagement ring with our Regal Blue Diamond Sapphire Ring.
