Picking your setting design and metal

Deciding on a setting design and metal for an engagement ring can be pretty daunting. We’ve included some basic things you should know before shopping for an engagement ring. 

Halo Design
Surrounding a central diamond with smaller stones, the Halo design aims to highlight the beauty of the central stone.

Diamond Set Shoulders
Diamonds running down each shoulder of the ring aim to draw the eye to the simply set solitaire diamond.

Plain Shoulder
Simple plain shoulders show off the natural beauty of the diamond you have selected.

Metal
Platinum is a naturally occurring white metal that is rare and dense. Its hardwearing properties mean that it is an enduring option.
Mixed with palladium, our 18ct white gold ring mounts offer an excellent alternative to Platinum.
Sometimes combined with white gold settings, 18ct yellow gold brings a beautiful natural lustre and warmth to a ring.
