Her colourful black diamond and orange sappire Tiger Hoop earrings may have been chosen to appear in British Vogue recently, but Frieda Kaplan Gloss adopts a more classic style when it comes to her engagement rings. Her small but perfectly formed collection for NOA Fine Jewellery recalls the elegance of the 1920s, with baguette- and triangular-cut diamond flanking spectacular central stones in a style that will appeal to brides looking for a contemporary ring with obvious vintage roots.
Based in London, Frieda has jewellery making in the blood. Both her grandfather and father worked alongside Steinmetz Diamonds - one of the world's leading suppliers of diamonds - for many years, which saw Frieda surrounded by gemstones from a very young age. It led her to pursue a degree in gemmology from the GIA in Israel, where she earned the official title of specialised diamond grader, after which she set up NOA Fine Jewellery.
Frieda named her inaugural range of jewels Modern Classics, but since then her collections have grown to include Noa Rosé, Noa Rocks, Noa Ice and Noa Rainbow, which range from the fun and fashionable to the truly exquisite. When it comes to engagement rings, however, Frieda offers a more personalised approach. Some customers have asked her to recreate one of her original designs, while others are invited to visit Frieda Kaplan Gross in central London on a bespoke basis to discuss ideas, designs and gemstones. This kind of flexibility ensures that your ring is hand-crafted to your exact specifications, with Frieda involved every step of the way, from first sketch to finished piece.
