Considered to be the ultimate token of love, the diamond has long been associated with feelings of eternity, invincibility and power. A naturally occurring substance so hard that Romans believed it would accompany the dead on their journey through the afterlife, the diamond’s power and allure is traced back to its immense strength, and the associated symbolism of eternal love.
White diamonds are seen as both the standard and the ultimate stone of choice for engagement rings. Their lack of colour makes them easy to wear on any skin tone, and the availability of different cuts, shapes and sizes means you can make unique and unexpected choices in design - it’s not just about the round solitaire.
All the diamonds used by our Designers are responsibly sourced through well established suppliers and trusted relationships. Always ask your Designer about the provenance of diamonds if this is important to you.
Diamonds are valued on their brilliance and beauty, based on the system of the 4 Cs - colour, cut, clarity and carat weight, and we always suggest choosing a diamond that has been selected for you by a trusted jeweller - even an untrained eye will be able to spot the most desirable diamond amongst a line-up of a few to compare, with the help of an expert.
For more detailed information on the 4 Cs and which factors are actually the most important, please take a look at our Guide to the 4 Cs.

Like the round diamond's sexier sister, the oval cut diamond is longer and slimmer than a classic round shape. But be cautious: the oval diamond can take various shapes and forms depending on the height to width ratio, and whereas it's a personal choice, the proportions are important to make sure the sparkle is maximised. For this reason you'll find that prices vary a lot even if the carat weight is the same, as more 'desirable' ratios will be more expensive.
The oval diamond is our choice for a solitaire engagement ring; more unexpected than a round diamond, and the longer height elongates the fingers.

Platinum is a bright, white precious metal that is commonly used in wedding bands and engagement rings as an alternative to white gold. It is more durable than gold due to a higher density and chemical composition, so it is less likely to break and suffer wear and tear. It is excellent and staying bright and shiny and resists tarnishing very well.
