Gone are the days where you’re limited on choice for an engagement ring. While the diamond is still the focus for a bride to be, there are unlimited choices in grades, clarity and now even shape, size and the setting it sits in. In fact, there are so many different options that match all manner of personal styles that many are opting for diamond rings for everyday wear. This season, we are introducing a wide range of rings, so whatever your style, look or taste, there is a diamond for you.
For the traditional and elegant, we have our beautiful solitaire diamond rings. High quality diamonds are set on bands of white gold and yellow gold, with the precious stone shaped in a variety of different ways. Classic styles like the round solitaire are available, or those that want a diamond that is a little different, there are square cut, emerald cut, pear cut diamonds and more.
For those looking for something a little more modern and contemporary, you can choose a unique shaped diamond that is surrounded by smaller diamonds in what is called a halo ring. These will capture the light beautifully, and make for a stunning piece of jewellery to treasure for a lifetime.
Our rings will not only delight any bride to be but as they are so personal in the unique cuts and settings, will match a wide variety of personal tastes and styles, meaning you could choose to buy a ring for any special occasion.
The ever popular ‘push present’ in which a man will gift a woman a ring after having a baby is becoming more and more popular. A unique and special diamond is a fantastic way of celebrating a new life, and an everlasting love.
Or perhaps there is a special event or occasion that calls for an equally special gift. A diamond halo ring may be just the present of choice, with many opting to wear these pieces on their right hand ring finger as a symbolism of those special moments. Women buying themselves promise rings or applauding their own ambitions and celebrating a milestone they’ve achieved independently is another trend.
Cocktail rings have a long tradition in the jewellery world, and have been donned by royalty, celebrity and more over the years. Originally, a cocktail ring was a dramatic affair, with large diamond or semi precious stones that were accented with stones around them. They captured the light as well as their audience, and were a focal point for an outfit. As the trends in fashion changed and grew, as did the shape and the want for a cocktail ring. Different shapes and styles were introduced, from uniquely shaped stones, to patterns and more being the feature.
As fast fashion was introduced, so was fast jewellery, and materials like glass, ceramic and resin were introduced into the world of jewellery. From special occasions to events, a cocktail ring was the piece du jour, and most certainly the piece du resistance when it came to accessorising. A cocktail ring can be worn with the simplest of outfits, elevating them from casual to chic in one fell swoop.
The demand now for cocktail rings that echo their original ancestors is vast, which is why Goldsmiths have introduced more contemporary and modern diamond rings that can be worn both as engagement rings, or as cocktail rings.
No matter what the style, or occasion, we will have a ring to suit. Our collections are vast, and we even have a bespoke ring service in which you can choose the cut of the diamond, the metal of the band, the setting type, and more for something unique and individual.
