Sapphire

Make like Kate Middleton and Princess Diana with a sapphire ring that not only displays the deepest shade of on-trend blue, but is a timeless colour that will never go out of fashion. A beautiful heirloom to pass through the generations, a sapphire ring can even serve as your 'something blue'.

Diamond

Nothing screams 'I'm engaged' more than a colourless diamond ring. For those who wish to keep their jewellery choices neutral and prevent any colour clashes, a diamond ring is the ideal choice. Wear with pride and confidence... after all, diamonds are a girl's best friend
