Choosing Your Engagement Ring Setting

Step One

Each ring style comes with vivid images and detailed descriptions, ensuring you know exactly what each design offers. Found the one that catches your heart? Simply click the "Select This Setting" button to mark the beginning of your creation.

The Popup that Paves the Way

After you've made your selection, a popup will seamlessly guide you to the next phase. It's not just any popup; it's the bridge to your perfect ring. With the prompt to "Add a Diamond," you're one click away from choosing the centrepiece of your ring.

Step Two

Personalise your Diamond

Intuitive Tools for a Tailored Experience

Our customisation journey continues with the selection of your diamond, a process simplified by our intuitive slider tools. These sliders empower you to explore and refine each characteristic of your diamond to match your desires exactly. Here's how you can define your perfect diamond:


The shape of your diamond is pre-selected to complement the ring style you chose, ensuring a harmonious design. Our collection ranges from the timeless round brilliant to the more avant-garde shapes, each crafted to enhance the ring's overall beauty.


With the slider for carat weight, visualise the impact of size on your diamond and find the one that balances grandeur with grace.


Select the colour grade that speaks to you, from the highest quality of colourless diamonds (D) down to an L rating, each graded to meet stringent standards.


From the rare flawless diamonds (FL) to slightly included options (SI2), our slider allows you to decide what level of natural characteristics your diamond will have.


Choose from the precision of an "Ideal" cut to the value of a "Good" quality cut, ensuring your diamond reflects your priorities in its sparkle and shape.


Our budget slider is your financial compass; set it to your preferred range and explore the options that align with your investment.

For those with distinct preferences or seeking even more precision, our advanced search criteria dropdown allows you to refine your search further.

Assistance at Every Step

Unfamiliar with some of the terms? Our information icons (i) next to each criterion are little beacons of knowledge, offering clear explanations to help you make an informed choice.

As you interact with the sliders, the list of diamonds updates in real-time, sourced directly from our global trade partners, presenting the best value and a diverse selection.
