Timeless Solitaire

Are you a type of bride who loves the classic, round-shaped diamond sparkler? Then you are probably picturing a fairy tale wedding in a castle or a grandiose ballroom and your ideal dress is a dramatic and intricately adorned ballgown… Your preferred choice of engagement ring suggests that you are traditional and rational, but also sensitive and sophisticated. You always look chic and classy and you know exactly what you want.

Uniquely Shapes

You wanted a classic engagement ring with a modern twist. Then it has to be a solitaire diamond but in a slightly less usual shape. It can be a teardrop stone placed horizontally, a chunky square diamond or a ladylike, elongated oval sparkler, a trendy polygonal ring or a romantic, heart-shaped ring. You have a unique style, but like to do things the traditional way. You are a princess-style bride who wants a classical wedding but will add a personal touch to everything from invitations to the cake and table settings.

You want a ring that has delicate settings encircling a pretty gemstone. From finest vintage-inspired designs to cutting-edge fashionable rings you are prepared to search until you find something that truly matches your personality and your style. You love beautiful things in life and you are not happy with simplicity. You probably also love opulent filigree laces and plenty of embellishments sewn onto your bridal gown and accessories.

Coloured Stones

Does your ideal engagement ring feature a dazzling coloured stone like a pink diamond, deep blue sapphire, a passionate ruby or an enchanting and mystical emerald? Brides who prefer coloured rings are usually creative, stylish and fashion-savvy. They also like to break the rules and to things their own way. Your wedding celebration has to be less ordinary and perfectly styled.

Vintage Style

If you love the romance and mystery of a vintage engagement ring that comes with history, then you are probably a dreamer. You love everything old-fashioned and you are probably dreaming of a romantic wedding in a historic venue, riding in an old-timer and wearing a vintage-style gown. If you want to wear a family heirloom ring than you are sentimental and respect traditional values, and if you want to purchase a unique antique ring, then you have original style and love mixing old and new.

Black Diamonds

Would you wear a black diamond like Carrie Bradshaw in the famous series Sex and the City? You love things that are new and ground-breaking, you probably don’t want a traditional wedding and maybe you are a little eccentric. Black diamonds are often the preferred choice of brides who are trend-setters and fashionistas. If you are brave enough to pick a black diamond you are definitely confident and determined to do things differently, no matter what others say. Your wedding dress will probably be a coloured one or a white one but with an unconventional silhouette.
