A fresh crop of rings has landed on Bond Street just in time for summer engagement ring browsing for love birds.  Have a look for your dream engagement ring from this new selection. Rings are so symbolic and none more so than the engagement ring. Sitting on the finger, that according to Roman legend, leads directly to the heart, an engagement ring is about so much more than just carats and passing fashions. Here are some that have caught my eye in the spring budding of jewels that have brightened up Bond Street.  Think beyond the traditional diamond solitaire or sapphire engagement ring as there are plenty of alternatives twinkling away. As for trends, I am beginning to see more and more yellow and rose gold with diamonds, a look that had waned in favour of the cool sheen of white gold and platinum. I surprise myself by warming so readily to the yellow gold and diamond look and in particular the De Beers Three Adonis Rose Bands stack.   And while one half of me is tempted toward the less traditional designs - that are not in fact billed as engagement rings such as Dior's rose ring or Harry Winston's Lily Cluster, the princess half in me is lured towards the ChaumetJosephine tiara-esque look. Boucheron, Cartier and Piaget offer grown-up elegance while Boodle's Bolero strikes a fine balance between cute and grand with the flower cluster ring. Van Cleef & Arpels' Genre Aladin sapphire flanked by diamonds is an absolute classic while Vuitton's Ombrelles et Eventails or  'Fans and Umbrellas' adds an exotic dash. 'Eternal Grace' by Boucheron is aptly named as this is a ring that will glide stylishly through the decades. For a more earthy feel for the hand made look of  Wright and Teague's Delphi solitaire ring. Meissen's Love Letter ring, though not strictly an engagement ring is loaded with symbolism and so very pretty.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
