The Ultimate Engagement Ring Style Guide

A proposal is one of the most memorable moments in both you and your partner’s lives, so it is important to have a ring that symbolises your love, commitment and this big milestone in your relationship.

At J Farren-Price we have an extensive collection of luxury engagement rings in a variety of diamond shapes, sizes and precious metals - 18ct white, yellow, rose gold or platinum. In addition to this range, we also specialise in custom engagement rings where our expert ring designers work closely with you (and your partner) to create a one-of-a-kind ring that is handcrafted to perfection.

We understand that finding the perfect ring requires a lot of time, consideration and patience. If you are the one proposing, it can also be daunting to get all the information you need while keeping it a surprise! This is why we have curated a collection of some of our most unique and popular styles for inspiration. These range from modern designs to classic cuts that can all carefully cater to your own personal taste.

 1. The Trilogy Engagement Ring

The three Diamond, or trilogy design is an ideal choice for a partner who wants to add a little extra to their engagement ring. Contrary to the traditional solitaire, three-Diamond rings are said to represent a couple’s lifetime together, with one diamond for the past, present and future.

Following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s engagement, three Diamond rings have become a popular, yet classic choice amongst couples.
