Lily Collins’s rose cut diamond engagement ring

The Emily in Paris star Lily Collins recently became engaged to Charlie McDowell, on a romantic, sunny trip to New Mexico. McDowell designed the bespoke ring himself, with the help of a jewellery designer. The unusual engagement ring features a bezel set rose-cut diamond ring, set in 18ct gold with a chunky brushed band. The understated, bohemian style of this engagement ring perfectly suits Lily’s laid back style.

Rose cut diamonds date back to the 16th century, and are typically found in vintage jewellery styles. The diamond shape’s facets remind us of a rose’s petals, which is how they got their name. Rose cut diamonds are hand carved by jewellers, making the gemstone quite rare and sentimental.

Lily’s chunky band and bezel set gemstone perfectly suits her busy, active lifestyle. The bezel set engagement ring is the most secure type of setting available, so her diamond is sure to not loosen!

We talk to our Head Designer, Maria Lalana, and get her expert opinion on what she estimates the cost of the engagement ring to be, and an insight into the craftsmanship that made it.

Lily’s ring appears to be a rose cut, bezel set in a bold gold band that suits her feminine, floral style. The diamond is unique given it’s an antique diamond cut, and quite large in size. Yellow gold is a great choice with a rose cut diamond, as it suits the overall warmth and softness of the ring. Due to the size and rarity of the diamond, I would estimate that a ring with similar characteristics would cost around £140,000
