The Brilliant Cut – The Timeless Bride
Trends don’t interest this blushing bride, as she prefers timeless pieces that never go out of fashion.

She considers herself to be a strong-minded, fashionable woman and a modern romantic at heart, so she’ll be keen to have something a little different on her finger.
The multi-stone ring uses a state-of-the-art diamond setting technique to create a larger visual appearance and one of a full stone, creating a high impact design and sparkling statement. The possibilities and shapes vary so the wearer can find a one-of-a-kind look to suit her contemporary taste.
