Put the I in ring with a design that’s original, unique and utterly extraordinary.
Symbolic of so much more than just your marital status: your rings represent your personality and style too. Be inspired by trends and fashions, incorporate design details and colours that make your heart pound and finish it off with finer details that make a statement.
Now more than ever, couples are looking for jewellery that fits with their personality and makes a statement about their style. “Over the past few years, we’ve found numerous brides who are looking for something different,” says Bill Hicks of Bill Hicks Jewellery Design. “Some want coloured stones, others prefer one statement ring and no wedding ring and many brides like vintage styles, but want the quality of a hand-made piece that’s unique to them.”

Rose gold, yellow gold, white gold and designs that include more than one metal are becoming increasingly popular. A mix of metals adds an element of individuality and allows you to shake up your jewellery choices without your ring looking out of place.

Onyx, morganite, peridot, pearl, moonstone, coloured sapphires and uncut or ‘rough’ diamonds are so #ontrend and a stunning way to personalise your ring. You could even consider a ring sans stone.

Incorporate details that speak to your heart. Studded bands are popular, as are techniques like Mokume gane, hammering, brushed matte finishing and vintage styles like filagree, milgrain and hand-engraving.
The ring that you’ll wear to mark your bond will always hold a special place in your heart as well as on your finger, so the most important thing of all is to make sure that it is true to you!
