New for autumn and part of the brand's relaunch, Mappin & Webb has released a signature collection of diamond engagement rings. Featuring 17 enchanting designs, each ring is named after an English rose, bringing together two classic symbols of love: diamonds and blooms. 

With its 200-year history, Brand Director Elizabeth Galton plundered Mappin & Webb's historic archives and found plenty of material from which to draw inspiration. The Amelia, the Alba, the Cecilia - each of the rings embodies a different style, from the classic to the more creative settings.

The Alba has been designed in a halo style and features two circles of brilliant-cut diamonds surrounding a central solitaire diamond. The romantic silhouette of halo-style rings has proved extremely popular in recent years, and it reappears in other Mappin & Webb designs: the Cecilia, which has a large diamond encircled by a ring of smaller diamonds, and the Amelia, which shows off one oval diamond, framed by a lavish diamond halo.

For those with a preference for something more classic, the collection also features a variety of solitaire rings, from the Belvedere to the Hermione. The Ena Harkness, named after the crimson rose popularised in the 1950s, has a magnificent 2.01ct round brilliant diamond set into Mappin & Webb's signature platinum mount, with the initials 'MW' forming the shape of the shank. The solitaire in all three is available in a variety of carats and cuts.

Then there are rings that are infused with vintage charm, including art deco styles that are perhaps the prettiest of them all. The Eglantine, a charming and delicate yet very hardy rose, showcases a trio of cushion-cut solitare diamonds, while the Isobel's deco-style setting is given a feminine spin, the twisting lines of brilliant-cut diamonds winding around a single brilliant solitaire.

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.

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