Embracing simplicity

Solitaire engagement rings are a celebration of simplicity in design. Stripping away intricate details, these rings highlight the purity of a single, carefully chosen diamond or gemstone. The use of just one gemstone directs all attention to the central stone, allowing its inherent beauty to take centre stage.

Timeless appeal

Originating in the 19th century, solitaire rings gained popularity for their classic, enduring beauty. Over time, they have become synonymous with commitment and everlasting love. The enduring appeal of solitaire rings lies in their ability to seamlessly blend tradition with modernity, making them a symbolic choice for couples seeking a timeless representation of their journey together.

We absolutely love a vintage inspired engagement ring, that's why we're crazy for Georgia! She's big, bold, and her beaded halo is inspired by antique ring designs. 

Georgia's intricate beading not only adds a touch of elegance but also creates the illusion of a halo, all without the need for additional gemstones. This design not only enhances the ring's stunning visuals but also contributes to keeping costs down, so if you're looking for a halo on a budget, Georgia's your girl!
