Toi et Moi rings

This gorgeous design gives you a modern twist on a classic engagement ring. Toi et moi wedding rings are made up of two complementary gemstones on a single band. Meaning ‘you and me’, this type of ring can allow you to get creative by exploring different gem cuts.  You could opt for pairing a diamond and a gemstone of your choice. If you wish to include a gemstone, consider its meaning and find an option that speaks to you.  

Personalised rings

If you and your partner are shopping for an engagement ring, consider designing a ring together. Creating your own wedding ring is growing in popularity and allows you to make a design tailored to you. This also gives you the perfect opportunity to design your wedding rings together as a couple. You could look at wedding band options, different gemstones or diamonds for a ring that is completely your own.  

Hidden halo rings

Halo rings have been quite popular this year as they are an exquisite, timeless design. A hidden halo ring adds that extra sparkle to your wedding ring, as it involves a band encased in diamonds with a statement stone sitting atop the ring. This eye-catching design allows your ring to shine from all angles. This style is even favoured by Blake Lively as it’s the same striking design as her engagement ring.  

Lab grown diamonds

For those looking for a more sustainable and ethically sourced option, lab grown diamonds take the cake. Also known as man-made diamonds, these types of rings are growing in popularity and retain characteristics of real diamonds with less of an impact on our environment. Nightingale’s general manager, Claire Beatson, says, “The main reason we advocate for lab-grown diamonds is because they’re much more ethical and sustainable than mined diamonds. The carbon footprint of creating a lab diamond is a fraction of what it takes to extract a natural diamond from the earth.”
