The larger a jewel is, the more light it will reflect. Engagement Rings with larger stones have been popularised in a number of enduring styles. In the mid-twentieth century the Solitaire Ring was the most popular symbol of a young couple’s love and commitment to each other. A Solitaire Ring has a single large stone set in a Tiffany prong mount. The Tiffany Mount, developed by the famous New York jewellery house, holds the jewel very securely and has an elegant simplicity to it. In addition to this, it allows the stone to trap the maximum amount of light around it and reflect it scintillatingly. The Solitaire has justly become a timeless classic. Another style of Engagement Ring set with larger stoneswhich has stood time’s test since the Roaring Twenties is the Trinity or Trilogy Ring. This Ring features Three jewels enchantingly mounted side by side representing the happy couple’s past, present, and glittering future together. More recently, two more large stones have been added in the Trinity Ring’s style to make the opulent Five Stone Ring, sometimes called the Fan Ring. More modern styles see classics like the Solitaire supported by rows of jewels on either side of the central stone, these supporting smaller stones are known as shoulder stones, and they draw the eye of the awed beholder to the stunning central gems most beguilingly. An Engagement Ring jewel can be cut into a number of classic styles. The dominant option until recently was the Round Brilliant, but modern tastes change, and the eye-catching Princess cut and romantic Heart cut are increasingly in demand. These cuts have a beauty of their own, but they have been developed to show off the stone in all its captivating glory, and they do this superbly.
Engagement Rings for women have been presented for centuries; the historical reason for this seems coldly mercenary now. The Engagement Ring was an assurance the man could support his future bride, and, even less palatably, would be kept by the unhappy woman should the couple split up as a kind of recompense for her having missed opportunities with other potential suitors. Hardly romantic, you will agree, but such were the times. Mercifully, we live in a more equitable, inclusive age and an encouraging sign of this is the fact that mens Engagement Rings are now being worn with pride. In our collection you will find a selection of Titanium Engagement Rings to suit a man’s lifestyle and complement his intended’s more feminine Ring. Titanium has the highest strength to weight ratio of all metallic elements, so it is extremely scratch resistant, it will not corrode, and is relatively light, so a wide Ring profile will not encumber your finger as you carry out everyday tasks. We also offer Mens Engagement Rings wrought from Platinum, a Precious Metal of reassuring heft with a luxuriant silvery white radiance which develops a distinguished patina over time. These treasured Rings allow modern fiancés as well as fiancées to celebrate and commemorate their love and devotion to each other.
Yellow Gold has been the first choice for lovers’ rings from ancient times. It still graces the fingers of many a modern bride to be as it has reassuring warmth to its lustre which speaks to luxury and romance. White Gold is a lot more sophisticated than it used to be. Modern White Gold is coated with Rhodium to ensure it has a uniformly brilliant, cool white lustre. Rhodium, at about ten times the price of Gold, is known as the costliest metal on Earth. It will not tarnish and is extremely reflective. This last quality makes it a wise choice as a mount for these jewels in particular as it further reflects the stones’ radiation of light making them appear brighter and bigger than they are. As you know, Platinum has greater weight than the other Precious metals we have our Engagement Rings made from, and has a brilliant silvery white lustre which develops a patina to give it distinction with time. Palladium is in the same family of metals as Platinum, and shares most of its qualities, except it is palpably lighter than Platinum, making it a popular choice for those worried a ring could be a burden on their fingers. The icy lustre of both Platinum and Palladium make them perfect matches for the stones set in them. You will find all these U.K. hallmarked Precious Metals among the Engagement Rings you peruse, we are sure your ideal Ring will be among them.
