If a cushion cut diamond is fit for a Duchess (well, future Duchess) it has got to be good.

If you’ve been doing your research, you may have seen cushion or radiant cut diamond engagement rings cropping up more than before. The old school cut has been thrust back into popularity because of the Royal Engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – and of course, the rather impressive trilogy ring that represents their commitment.

Diamonds come in a large variety of shapes (and endless combinations of the 4CS), but let’s swing the focus onto cushion cut diamonds because they’re about to become increasingly popular.

Proposing the right way

Anonymous polls are a brilliant way to gain insight, especially when it comes to special experiences such as marriage proposals. It’s so subjective – the ideal proposal features a different scenario for different kinds of people.

2017 Engagement Ring Trends

Looking for a diamond ring? What’s hot and on trend this year?

 

Solitaire engagement rings will always be a timeless classic, however in 2017 we are seeing a rise in the popularity of multi-stoned rings.

The three-stone trilogy, the halo and the cluster rings have become more and more popular over the last couple of years; a trend set to continue this year.
