With strong, clean silhouettes and a rainbow of beautiful gemstones, Gee Woods is an exciting jewellery designer breathing new life into classic designs. From modern halo rings using hexagonal cut sapphires, Deco-inspired geometric designs, and a line in killer solitaires, this British brand is going from strength to strength creating bespoke and limited edition engagement ring styles for the modern bride.
Champagne, cognac, whiskey or simply ‘brown’ coloured diamonds are just that - light brown coloured diamonds that were only a few years ago dismissed as poor quality or undesirable alternatives to white diamonds. But in the rise of alternative engagement rings, their use in jewellery design has become more prominent, with some shades being highly covetable. Particularly attractive when mixed with yellow gold, a champagne diamond is wearable, dusky shade of soft yellowy brown, and works particularly well in modern style engagement or commitment rings.

The octagonal cut is extremely similar to an emerald cut, and often very hard to tell the two apart. The main difference is that octagonal cut stones often have eight equal sides, rather than the emerald cut having a predominantly rectangular shape with short ‘corners’ making up eight sides.
Jewellery designers favour an octagonal cut gemstone for being a less common choice, as they have a geometric but classic shape. With a large table (the top, flat part of a gemstone when looking from above) this cut favours clear, coloured gemstones of high quality with few imperfections.
Gold is a naturally occurring metal with a warm, glowing finish when polished, and remains the most popular choice for engagement rings due to its natural beauty and hard-wearing strength.
Pure 24k gold is naturally a soft material, and considered too soft to create jewellery with, so it is mixed with small amounts of other metals to create an alloy.
As well as increasing the durability of the gold, adding alloys can also change the colour of the gold to produce rose or white gold, for example.
18k yellow gold is made up of 75% pure gold, and 25% alloy, which would usually include silver and copper.
18k rose gold is made up of 75% pure gold, 22.2% copper, and 9.2% silver.
18k white gold is made up of 75% pure gold and 25% palladium or platinum.
