Engagement Ring Style Guide

If you’re choosing an engagement ring for the love of your life, we understand that it can feel like a daunting task. Our team love to help partners find the perfect ring and we have been doing so for many years - making us the diamond specialists. 

With this in mind, we’ve put together a style-guide that will guide you in the decision-making process.

Find her style

When purchasing an engagement ring, it’s important you consider the style of your partner. Do they prefer more elegant, sophisticated designs? Classic styles are timeless, and many women prefer an understated diamond ring. Or maybe they’re a little more outgoing and stylish? It’s essential you work this out before stepping foot into a jeweller, as it’ll help you make the perfect selection.

Traditional and Classic Rings

These classic settings are a popular choice amongst many. The solitaire style is genuinely timeless, allowing the centre diamond to stand tall without any distraction. They’re versatile and elegant, with the bride able to add her personality with the choice of wedding band that accompanies. The classic design is ideal for the woman who doesn’t need to go overboard with accessories, someone who appreciates the more beautiful things in life. If you go for the round brilliant cut, you’ll find the faceting is perfect for women looking for maximum sparkle from her diamond.


Solitaire Collection

Classic Engagement Ring - Round, White Gold 


If you’re looking for something like a solitaire, but a little more ‘wow’ maybe a diamond band is an addition to consider? These are a breathtaking adaption of the solitaire design and only add to the timeless nature of these rings.

Stylish and Outgoing

If your bride is looking to truly shine, then she’d adore Gerard McCabe’s Aura Engagement Rings. This range features a central glistening diamond, surrounded by a halo of gemstones. This setting adds to the sparkle and gives the illusion that the centre stone is larger. You can also add a diamond band to this ring, to further enhance the magnificent design.
