Large diamond engagement rings!

Written by Mel Williams on 12 April 2011

When choosing a diamond, it is important to remember the 4 C's - the cut, colour, clarity and carat. Here at Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery, our designers only source the best diamonds, and I am reminded of this every time I look at these beautiful diamond engagement rings!

Here is our amazing platinum engagement ring with a one carat H SI brilliant cut diamond.

Platinum and diamond engagement ring

This ring is made from platinum which is a lovely metal and it is the hardest wearing of all the precious metals. This adds extra protection for the stones, especially the 1ct central diamond which is of an H SI quality, meaning it is very sparkly with exceptional brilliance! The high polished finish compliments the sparkly diamond and makes the whole ring shine even more and the low setting has been designed to fit easily next to a wedding band and protect the diamond.

This simple and beautiful classic palladium engagement ring holds a 1.03ct D SI1 brilliant cut diamond which has been set in a four claw setting. The D colour means that the diamond is exceptionally white we often use SI1 diamonds as the inclusions are invisible to the naked eye and can only occasionally be seen through a 10x loupe. The band measures 3mm wide at the widest point, tapering to 2mm wide at the back for comfort. The band has a flat profile with softened edges and highly polished finish.

This ring is an example of a classic delicate platinum engagement ring and it incorporates a beautiful 6mm H SI brilliant cut diamond in a four claw setting with elegantly scooped out sections to reveal the side view of the diamond. The claws are neat and flat for a smooth feel and this gives a contemporary look to this traditionally styled ring. The band is fully rounded in profile and measures just over 2mm wide so is fairly delicate which emphasises the size of the diamond!

Diamonds throughout history have always been admired, so it is not surprising that they have found their way into the centre piece of traditional engagement rings representing prosperity, love and spirituality.
