There are other ways of capturing the vintage wave, such as choosing this Marquise cut Brown Diamond Ring. The marquise cut is a traditional jewellery shape that can trace its origin to the esteemed French Court in the 18th century, when King Louis XV of France (1710-1774) commissioned a jeweller to design a cut shape that resembled the lips of his mistress. This lips-shaped diamond then became very fashionable, and has remained trendy for many years. It is once again back in style, and this ring is definitely suitable to celebrate one’ engagement.
No one engagement ring to rule them all
Traditionally an engagement ring is always placed on the left hand and a wedding band is worn on the right. However there are some people who are now breaking away from the past, and planning on having complementary engagement and wedding rings that can be worn together on the same finger.
The current trend is to pair multiple eternity rings with a dazzling diamond engagement ring that work in harmony with one another. You can achieve this luxurious look with these Diamond full and half eternity rings, combined with this Diamond Halo Engagement Ring.
