The name of the Cannelé collection by Andrew Geoghegan comes from the French word for fluted - a design detail that you can't miss in these extraordinarily pretty bridal jewels and engagement rings. The centre stone is cupped by a delicate, fluted setting, which is cut and polished under a microscope to achieve the immaculate finish.
Defying the current culture of celebrities showing off their carat-heavy diamond rings, the award-winning British designer has created a collection that proves bigger is not necessarily better.
"I felt inclined to create this lighter and finer design as I am aware that not everyone wants a great deal of metal in their engagement ring," says Andrew. "I see each jewellery creation as a sculpture where each view of the piece must be considered, balanced and beautiful."
The original Cannelé engagement ring with white diamonds is a classic choice and remains the fastest-selling Andrew Geoghegan diamond ring, but more vibrant combinations are available including a central blue sapphire and rich, chocolate-coloured diamond, encircled by a halo of diamonds.
The collection has proved so popular that Andrew expanded it to include earrings and pendants, plus an explosively colourful cocktail ring topped with a Paraiba tourmaline from Mozambique.
Crowned the British Jewellery Association's Designer of the Year in 2013, Andrew also reached the finals for "Bridal Collection of the Year" in 2014 with his Cannelé jewels. Stay tuned for news of Andrew's latest bridal collection, Clair de Lune, launched in 2016.
