With sustainability and social responsibility at the heart of her designs, Monique Péan delivers a modern spin on the timeless Toi et Moi engagement ring style.

This platinum darling is described by Beladora as “a feminine confection,” and we couldn’t agree more! The handful of pink diamonds set along the split shank ensures this ring surpasses all other similar versions and lends an endearing kind of warmth. The near-colorless, 2-carat princess-cut diamond is nothing to sneeze at either!

This may look like a standard solitaire, but don’t be fooled! Erika Winter’s trademark satin polish and keen eye (note the fineness and how cleanly-finished the prongs are, superbly complimenting—to a nearly seamless effect—the facets of the Old European-cut center diamond) pays homage to vintage design while remaining unmistakably modern.

Portrait-cut diamonds are rarely seen on the engagement ring market (and in the fine jewelry market as a whole), but Eva Fehren is here to change that! Aptly named The Hero, this platinum ring is exceptionally, thoroughly, beyond-your-wildest-dreams magical. Allow me to explain: because this type of diamond is generally on the flatter side and shaped with few facets/a MASSIVE table, it is of paramount importance that the gem is crystal clear. Inclusions cannot be hidden and to achieve the pristine angularity you see here, each cut must be painfully exact. This is 1.5-carats of a geological miracle, and speaks volumes to the ingenuity of human ability. Only the best, most durable, permanently ice-bright metal ought to house such a phenomenon… well hello there, platinum!
The Platinum Tiara ring by Trumpet & Horn is a throwback to the short-lived but continually influential Edwardian era (1901-1910) when airy, lightweight fabrics took the place of their more cumbersome predecessors in favor of a more active lifestyle, and decorative arts reflected the rising status of women across all aspects of society. Females gradually became accepted into the workforce and thus took control of their own finances—this meant they could purchase items, including jewelry, for no other reason than their own pleasure. This platinum tiara ring is a celebration of that joyful shift, a mood and philosophy that is both a part of history, yet is always en vogue. It is stabilized, it is elegant, it is triumphant. This platinum engagement ring would be a glorious pinnacle to your happily-ever-after.
