For my latest video, I go to the Cartier boutique at Selfridges, to discover what this famous French jeweller offers in the way of engagement rings. I also find out more about the Set for You bespoke engagement ring service as well as the maison's rich history.
And it becomes quite clear to any visitor, is that a visit to Cartier is always an enjoyable experience with friendly and knowledgeable bridal experts on hand. Whether newly engaged or just browsing, with a range of over 600 rings, you certainly won't be stuck for choice. There is a ring to suit both your taste and price range, starting with the iconic LOVE collection rings from £2,000 and right up to Hollywood star style diamond solitaires worth millions. Cartier will help you find that perfect fit.
Steeped in history, Cartier has dressed the hands of some of the world's most glamorous women, including Princess Grace Kelly with the 10.47 carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring gifted to her by Prince Rainier. Hollywood's beloved Liz Taylor was given by Richard Burton the iconic jewel billed as the 'million dollar diamond' that Liz first wore as a pendant.
But it's not just about history and famous women at Cartier where a contemporary approach to luxury, including the new Set For You engagement service that is available online and in-store, allows you to create your dream ring from start to finish. Choose the diamond, one of 15 different ring settings and in three weeks your custom-made ring will be ready.
