Who says engagement rings must be made with diamonds? This question, of course, is a bit cheeky, as jewellery professionals are no doubt familiar with the answer. This long-standing tradition is the result of a fairly genius marketing campaign, which has been embraced by today’s fashion. Of course, things change—especially fashion! These days, we are seeing more and more celebrities and trendsetters ditch diamond engagement rings in favour of big, juicy gemstones of all varieties and colours.
When an antique-/vintage-style engagement ring is handcrafted, it is unique; no two pieces look the same, and each ring is made to host a selected centre stone that is almost always an original antique cut.
When it comes to bridal jewellery, today’s couples are on the hunt for fresh, innovative twists on a classic symbol; one that can express their unique love story while remaining on the cutting edge of fashion.
Most who work in the jewellery industry are familiar with the story of the first documented diamond ring used to signify engagement, presented by Archduke Maximilian of Austria upon his betrothal to Mary of Burgundy in 1477. The ring as a symbol of love and commitment, however, traces its history to the earliest days of humanity.
