Our engagement ring collection
When shopping for your diamond ring, there are a plethora of elements to consider from diamond shape, diamond size and quality, metal type, as well as band style and band width. However, the design elements that ring true for all of our collection rings is that every classic design looks beautiful from every angle and is comfortable to wear. The collection transcends trends and are destined to become treasured family heirlooms.
Mid-century modern design is sleek, yet always functional. That’s what we wanted for the collection.
Understanding the anatomy of an engagement ring will help to describe and recognise the different elements of a ring’s design and how you might like to customise it to suit your preferences. For collection designs that allow it, these rings are set with a small signature ruby on the inside of the band. The red ruby acts as a tangible symbol of our brand, capturing both our customers’ story and the care everyone at Taylor & Hart has put into the design, craft and delivery of each product. It’s also a sweet chance to personalise your ring-the ruby can be replaced with a gemstone that has special meaning to you or your partner.
Each design is priced without its centre stone, which can be chosen at the next stage of the ring builder. The designs can be set with diamonds or gemstones; from traditional white diamonds to colours such as pink, blue or yellow as well as lab-grown diamonds. Alternatively, each engagement ring can be set with side precious coloured gemstones that include blue, yellow, pink and peach-coloured sapphires, rubies and emeralds.
Oval engagement rings
An oval diamond is perfect for those who love the curved edges and sparkle of a round cut diamond but want something a little more unique.
Round engagement rings
Best known for their brightness and brilliance, a round diamond is a time-honoured diamond shape for an engagement ring as its versatile circular shape suits all styles and metals.
Cushion cut engagement rings
We recommend a cushion diamond for anyone looking for a classic look with a unique spin, as these diamonds feature a brilliant facet structure combined with a highly original squared shape.
Emerald cut engagement rings
The emerald cut diamond is one of the most elegant diamond shapes, with a step-cut facet structure that gives the emerald diamond its distinct "hall of mirrors" effect.
Marquise engagement rings
The stunning marquise cut diamond dates back to 18th century France and its elongated elliptical shape is both eye-catching and imbued with romance.
Princess cut engagement rings
The angular princess diamond is a favorite choice for those who want a modern, geometric shape with strong lines while retaining the fire and scintillation of a brilliant cut.
Radiant cut engagement rings
Choosing a radiant diamond is a fantastic way to combine a unique rectangular shape with maximum brilliance and fire, making it a striking addition to any engagement ring design.
Pear shaped engagement rings
A pear diamond, also known as a teardrop diamond, is said to symbolise the deep emotional bond shared between two partners, perfect for those who want a ring that tells a story.
Asscher cut engagement rings
With a compelling history and unparalleled sparkle, Asscher diamonds have a vintage charm that’s versatile enough for any type of engagement ring.
Heart shaped engagement rings
The ultimate symbol of romance and affection, heart diamonds have an old-world design that hasn’t changed in over 600 years, making them a classic choice for an engagement ring.
Platinum engagement rings
Known for its beautiful, cool white sheen platinum is the perfect backdrop for your diamond or gemstone. This metal requires a low level of maintenance, with almost 60% of our customers opting for platinum rings.
Rose gold engagement rings
Synonymous with warmth, rose gold is a delicate and pretty metal choice and notably looks excellent on all skin tones. Rose gold rings are the second most popular choice amongst our customers.
Yellow gold engagement rings
Yellow gold is likely famed for being the most traditional of precious metal options. They appeal to those who desire its rich appearance and strength, whilst retaining a sense of tradition.
White gold engagement rings
18 carat white gold appeals to modern brides and grooms who desire the feel of gold with the colour and brightness of platinum. All white gold is plated in rhodium to give it a bright white appearance, so with normal wear, white gold does require replating every 1-2 years.
Engagement ring settings and styles
Solitaire engagement rings
Solitaire rings feature a centre stone held in place by claws or a bezel setting with a plain metal band. The style is an icon of proposal culture, making up 70% of the engagement ring market. Known for their simplicity and striking appearance, solitaires let their centre stone take centre stage.
Halo engagement rings
This heavenly style features a ring, or ‘halo’, of closely set smaller diamonds that surround the centre gemstone. This engagement ring style cleverly gives the illusion that your centre gemstone is larger than it is, with a sparkly finish that captures attention.
Trilogy engagement rings
Often known as trinity or three stone engagement rings, trilogy rings feature just that-three gemstones or diamonds, each one symbolising the past, present and future.
Toi et Moi engagement rings
A toi et moi engagement ring features two centre diamonds or gemstones, symbolising partnership and devotion. The gemstones meet together on the finger–a motif of two souls meeting as one.
Pave engagement rings
Deriving from the French word for paving stones, this style typically features a centre gemstone with a band that is paved with small stones, set closely together.
Floral engagement rings
Lean into romance with a heartwarming floral engagement ring, a design style that’s celebrated love for centuries.
How much do you spend on a diamond engagement ring?
Almost everyone who comes to us to begin their engagement ring journey wants to know: ‘how much should I expect to pay for an engagement ring?’ There’s no simple answer. But, we can help you explore how each element of a design effects engagement ring prices, how you can maximise your value for money, and give you an idea of how much other people spend on engagement rings.
The ‘three months of your salary’ rule of yesteryear was created as part of a marketing campaign in the 50s and 60s. Dated and exclusionary, it’s not really legitimate advice for would-be proposers. What matters most is that you’ve found the love of your life; your ring should be a reflection of that bond, not an object that’s only about a price tag.
The nation that spends the most on engagement rings is the US, where the average cost of an engagement ring in 2021 was about $6,000. While the average spend is significantly less in the UK, it doesn’t mean people are buying inexpensive rings. Instead, we’ve seen a trend that has seen consumers move away from traditional choices, choosing to explore different designs, materials and styles as well as gaining a deeper understanding of a product’s value before deciding what to spend on an engagement ring.
