Maria Doulton: Choosing an engagement ring is an important and exciting time in your life, but it can also be quite daunting, but most of all you should remember it for being enjoyable. So I've come along to Selfridges in London to visit Cartier to find out what this famous French jeweller offers.

The first thing I think you'll notice is how friendly the staff are here and their bridal experts know absolutely everything about engagement rings and wedding bands. So take a seat and let the experts guide you.

Salim Rahman: If they come to me, hopefully it'll be to do with a bridal enquiry. So I would take them through to our specialised bridal salon and we'll show them through our diamonds, we'll ask them if they've seen any of our Cartier creations before, or what they know about our engagement rings.

It's all about falling in love with the ring, rather than just talking about numbers and letters. I'll also prepare two glasses of champagne for them as well to celebrate.

Maria Doulton: With over 600 different rings, Cartier is a really good place to come and find out what it is that you really want and what suits your hand and budget, because you might be surprised to know that you can buy a LOVE engagement ring for about £2,000 and, of course, Cartier offers all sorts of prices that go up to tens and even hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Cartier has a service called Set For You, which is a way to customise your own engagement ring and, starting at £2,500, you can choose the diamond, the style of setting, and the kind of gold that you want.

Salim Rahman: Effectively creating a bespoke ring that's never been tried on by anyone. This process takes about three weeks so we can get this done very, very quickly.

Maria Doulton: If you choose a Cartier engagement ring you will be in very good company, as this jeweller has attracted some of the most beautiful and famous women of our times. Grace Kelly of course had an engagement ring from Cartier bought for her by Prince Rainier, and you can see her wearing it throughout the film High Society. Elizabeth Taylor also wore a Cartier diamond. It was set into a pendant and given to her by Richard Burton.

But this is all about you and Cartier really does understand this. So from its rich history, Cartier are able to offer the best in design and craftsmanship, but make it relevant to you so that your engagement ring experience is as enjoyable as possible.
