Thou shalt be coy.
Thou shalt be decked up like a ‘groaning under baubles’ Christmas tree.
Thou shalt say yes only to a princess cut solitaire.
Thou shalt be perfect on your wedding day.
Thou shalt trash these commandments already!

“Turn and the world is yours”. That’s the essence of the Piaget signature Possession Ring- an iconic piece that’s one of the most coveted in the world.

The Holy Trinity of engagement rings that brides through the ages have been wanting and waiting for. But the holy grail too can be redefined can it not?
TIFFANY & CO.
Sometimes it seems the brides say yes to the signature blue box more than the man! Thought the ages brides have hoped for that perfect Tiffany wedding ring but we say change the codes. Why not go for gorgeous and new age Paloma’s Melody Collection especially the one in rose gold with the pavé diamond band running through. And if you’re daring enough, go for the starkly beautiful black diamond design. Elegant, modern and signature Tiffany!
Cartier symbolises love especially the proposal. As the brand says, ‘the red case bears witness to your commitment and your promise to your betrothed.’ But while the Cartier D’Amour is the stuff of every woman’s dream proposal, we pick their quintessential Love Collection ring. Like the iconic Love bracelet, this ring with it’s signature screw motifs and minimal design gives that edge the modern bride looks for.
Who’s not coveted a Harry Winston diamond in their life! Their Engagement Rings Collection are charming with a bit of that classic vintage vibe. We especially love their rings in sapphire, yellow diamond and emeralds- unconventional stones for the proposal ring but every bit as alluring and unique.
