Editor’s Pick of engagement rings

While some may prefer the traditional diamond solitaire, I have chosen these engagement rings in the hope of inspiring future brides to find out what they would really like to see on their finger 'til death do you part.

DE BEERS, Fancy Pink Aura Solitaires. POA

While some may prefer the traditional diamond solitaire, I have chosen these engagement rings in the hope of inspiring future brides to find out what they would really like to see on their finger 'til death do you part. While a Dior bleeding heart ring may not be everyone's idea of the perfect engagement ring, it will appeal to those who want to steer as far away as possible from the Kate Middleton fairy-tale bride look or make a statement about a different way to love. Colour is often overlooked for engagement rings and I love the traditional deep blue sapphire from Piaget. Coloured diamonds are becoming more popular and the pinks and yellows from De Beers are very special. If you do go for traditional diamonds then consider a lightly-tied bejewelled ribbon from Van Cleef & Arpels or a spray of delicate flowers from Louis Vuitton as a refreshing alternative. If you do want an enduring classic, both Cartier and Boodles have plenty to chose from. In fact, at Cartier you can take advantage of their "Set for you" service that allows you to customise your ring and make it that little bit more special. And finally, I have chosen the Chaumet "Bee my Love" wedding band that is as sweet as a pot of honey. I hope this inspires you to findan engagement ring that is just right for you.
