This spring, De Beers Jewellers honours its heritage as The Home of Diamonds with the arrival of a selection of new engagement rings that combine contemporary design and the finest craftsmanship with the most beautiful and rare natural diamonds. A brilliant celebration of love and an unforgettable way for a couple to seal the promise they have made to one another, no symbol has the same strength, wonder and beauty as a diamond. The closest thing to forever, it holds profound power and meaning.
Designed with versatility in mind, the Enchanted Lotus and Dewdrop Crown rings in platinum are intended to evolve with a couple’s love story over time. Symbolic of purity and eternity, scintillating round brilliant diamonds capture the radiance of the Lotus flower crowning a My First De Beers Aura round brilliant diamond engagement ring as it wraps around.
Capturing the sparkle of the morning dew, a celebration of exciting possibilities, the Dewdrop Crown ring sits harmoniously alongside a De Beers engagement ring. Worn alone or together, these ring-enhancing styles add a new dimension and form an utterly unique and seamless ring stack.
The most emblematic of all De Beers Jewellers designs, the DB Classic platinum solitaire ring is perfectly proportioned with a v-setting to elevate the hero diamond and emphasise its extraordinary Fire, Life and Brilliance . Introducing a playful take on this popular and timeless setting, the DB Classic Coloured Pavé round brilliant diamond ring offers two unique engagement rings with an unexpected, colourful twist. The pavé-set band features fancy yellow or fancy pink round brilliant diamonds, accentuating the brilliance of the breathtaking 3 carat plus round brilliant hero white diamond.
Adding to the timeless DB Classic range, the DB Classic radiant-cut solitaire ring in platinum is ideal for the lovers of perfect symmetry combined with glamorous brilliance. Originating in the 1970s, this non-traditional cut combines the purity of the emerald-cut with the sparkle of a round brilliant.
The halo-shape of De Beers’ Aura setting is a modern iteration of the crowns that are featured in Byzantine-era wedding bands. Radiating brightness and eternal love, a halo of micropavé-set diamonds intensifies the beauty of a magnificent one carat marquise-cut diamond; a one carat heart, a shape that is eternally enchanting and evocative one of life’s most romantic gestures; or a sparkling one carat radiant-cut, the perfect design for modern brides looking for a romantic style.
The marquise cut is another modification of the round brilliant that maximises carat weight and helps to elongate the fingers. It dates back to the 1700s when legend has it Louise XV of France requested a diamond cut to resemble the perfectly shaped mouth of his mistress, Marquise de Pompadour.
Considered one of the most romantic diamond cuts, the heart shape is based on the round brilliant, with a cleft at the top. Its popularity dates back to the 16th century, when Mary Queen of Scots famously gave Queen Elizabeth a heart-shaped diamond ring as a gift of friendship.
The extended offering is available in Harbour City De Beers store.
