With its pave encrusted loop and large centre diamond, this ring is bold enough to be eye-catching while still managing to not be too over the top. You can add more impact to the ring by adding a coloured diamond or a bright precious stone as the centre stone or by making one part of the ring a different metal for added contrast.

Two Tone

Two tone rings add plenty of drama. In this ring, a delicately twisting band is given contrast through the use of platinum or white gold and rose gold. This style would work equally well in yellow and white gold. Add even more boldness by opting for a colourful centre stone or even by adding colourful pave stones.

Morganite Bloom

Morganite may not be the brightest coloured stone. It can, however, add impact when paired with a dramatic design. This floral-like bloom has a vintage style that works very well with the pink tone of the morganite. Diamonds or even pink sapphires can be added for extra colour and detail.

Chevron Pear

The design of this ring will certainly turn heads. A pear cut diamond, surrounded by tiny pave stones, flows into a chevron pave band at its tip. Add more drama with a coloured diamond or your favourite precious stone. Change up the metal or even alternate the colour by choosing coloured pave stones on the halo or band.

Black Sapphire

Black sapphires are certainly full of drama and intrigue. The sophisticated, retro glamour of this stone is ideal for a classic pear cut ring. A warmer toned metal will further help to add to the look of this ring, while platinum or white gold would keep it a bit more understated.

Geometric Tourmaline
