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.

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.

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.
