Delicate, handmade and organically inspired, Michelle specialises in creating unique alternative engagement and wedding rings for the uncommon bride. Special attention is given to the selection of natural gemstones used, particularly grey diamonds and sapphires in interesting shapes and cuts.
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.
Diamonds are traditionally the birthstone of April. See all diamond rings here.
Cushion cut diamonds are 4 sided in shape, with the corners 'cut off' to form a softer silhouette, like a pillow. They are found in a variety of square or rectangular shapes, and whereas they don't tend to emit as much pure white sparkle (brilliance) than their round counterparts, they have a lot of 'fire', which is an effect produced when light disperses into rainbow colours within the stone.
One of our favourite cuts for its soft, pillowy shape, the cushion cut diamond looks great set on its own in a wider, curved band, or as an unusual contrast in a round setting.

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.
