Our Unique Engagement Rings June 02 2016

Here at Carolyn we are proud to host a brilliant selection of Fine Engagement Rings. We have beautiful Sapphire Engagement Rings, Diamond Engagement Rings and even Ruby Engagement Rings but what really makes our day is when ladies and gents have inspiring and original ideas of their own.
As we can source a vast number of Fine Diamonds, Natural Coloured Diamonds, Sapphires, Opals, Rubies and many more precious stones, our customers are often spoilt for choice during the design stages.
Diamonds are the most popular precious stone choice for Engagement Rings and we love to teach our customers about how to choose the right Diamond for them. We often have a good selection of loose diamonds in store but if our customers are after a particular cut, carat weight and/or colour we usually have a selection of 6/10 stones sent to us direct from our reputable diamond merchants. 
GIA Certificated Pear shape Diamond Engagement Ring; Made in Nottingham
Here is one example of an Engagement Ring made to order after our customer chose the beautiful pear shape Diamond after an in depth "lesson" from one of our diamond experts. He knew his partner wanted a pear shape diamond and he wanted to give her something a little "different". He also wanted to see photos of the ring coming together. 
Bespoke Platinum Tension Set Engagement Ring with Fine Diamond chosen by our customer. This was then flown to Abu Dhabi where the surprise proposal took place.

 

Sapphires are probably the next in line in popularity to Diamonds, mainly due to the hardness and durability of the crystal, but Sapphires are a real favourite at Carolyn Codd's because or the beautiful colours available. 
Many people believe that Sapphires are just dark blue but Sapphires are available in White, Black and every colour in between. Ruby is actually the same crystal as Sapphire, but is known as Ruby when it displays Red. 
Beautiful Blush Pink Sapphire with three fine round white diamonds on either side - Feminine but not too "girly"; exactly what this customer wanted.
Gorgeous Purply Pink Sapphire with grain set fine diamonds and romantic rose gold.

Royal Blue Sapphires surround this Stunning Princess Cut Diamond, with a "before and after" montage for the customer. 
We always try to encourage our customers to be creative with their ideas and we try to put their personality into the pieces but we do always recommend pieces to be not only beautiful and a joy to wear but practical. Opals are a wonderful stones, full of colour and are so unique but need care when wearing.  

Opal and Fine Diamond Engagement Ring
This beautiful vintage inspired Engagement Ring was commissioned by a gentleman who knew his lovely lady adored opals. With a handmade collet setting, we made sure that the opal would be safe be everyday wear.
