You might think that it is a little too early in the year to be cherry picking “must have” diamond rings from 2012. Ordinarily you would be correct. We would, therefore, need good cause to present a very recent design and to describe it “most wanted”. This is, however, something we do from time to time predicting “most wanted” designs on the tick list of engagement rings that are “to die for” (merely an expression we hasten to point out). In reality, to be worn for a long, happy, lifetime! At this point let us just get on with today’s review, cherry picked from the new, fresh engagement rings hot off the bench.
Why “most wanted” amongst engagement rings?
Well, it would need to satisfy specific requirements and would qualify based on certain criteria.
- Initial reaction – a general public response when we launch a design
- Try on factor – proportion of prospective clients who have to try this one when they see it
- Design / style elements – designs that strike a chord with current style trends (see below)
- Timeless factor – designs that will never date – i.e. modern day classics, not short lived trends
This particular design is a part of many diamond halo rings, perfect for anyone looking for a modern classic that is both striking in appearance and has the timeless beauty. These are details we hold in such high regard with any item of diamond jewellery. The Princess cut diamond halo, has been described as the “ultimate engagement ring”, by some, and just “stunning” by others, and one admirer even described this as their “perfect engagement ring.”
Photographed here in true vintage style, the ring would not look out of place in any era. The size here is the flagship ring size, exhibiting a beautifully proportioned one carat Princess cut diamond, surrounded by approx a quarter of a carat of smaller melee diamonds in a squared halo framing the main diamond. The central diamond is provided with full GIA, or IGI certification to authenticate the chosen colour and clarity of the stone, which can be customised to any client’s requirements.
In spite of what we think, ultimately personal preference is the deciding factor. We just love to present you with beautifully balanced, new designs.
