Royal Romance & Sparkle
Love is definitely in the air in London, the home of Brown & Newirth, as Prince Harry announced his engagement to the ever glamorous Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex (and bride) to be.
Of course, all eyes were on the engagement ring and the dazzling three stone diamond piece didn’t disappoint. Crafted by court jewellers, Cleave & Company, the ring features a stunning cushion cut centre stone flanked by two further diamonds from the personal collection of the Prince’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales and all set in white gold on a yellow gold shank (Meghans favourite).
Three stone rings are also said to hold an extra special meaning, with the first stone representing the past and a couple’s journey and memories together, the second centre stone represents the present with the third stone symbolizing the future and happiness to come. Such a lovely sentiment for the most special of times!
An elegant and timeless alternative to the popular solitaire engagement ring, the trend for three stone rings has grown again in recent years and interest is sure to skyrocket as the Meghan effect only grows.
Here’s a selection of our three stone show stoppers, sure to get a royal reaction from anyone lucky enough to receive one:
Adore – Love, Cherish and Adore with our Adore engagement ring, a beautiful three stone ring featuring a central 0.50ct round brilliant cut diamond with two 0.25ct round brilliant cut diamonds either side. All handcrafted in 18 ct gold (available in yellow white or rose gold).
Jasmine – The Jasmine flower symbolizes love, hope and happiness and this stunning 0.83ct trilogy with diamond set shoulders represents this perfectly. An intoxicating mix of rose and white 18ct which is also available in yellow gold.
Honour – Promise to love, honour and cherish with this stunning 3 stone ring featuring a central 0.50ct round brilliant diamond flanked by two 0.13ct round brilliant cut diamonds. All claw set in 18ct white, yellow or rose gold.
The most talked about engagement ring of the year was designed by Prince Harry himself and is certainly an elegant, personal and timeless choice for this very modern of royal couples.
Designing your own ring doesn’t have to be just for royalty though, our award winning design studio can work with any ‘ fiancee to be ‘ to create a ring just for you, Some examples of exquisite pieces we have crafted are below. Just stunning and definitely fit for a Princess!
This solitaire showstopper is based on Evoke, however the client had a desire to personally select the stone himself. Our GIA qualified Diamond grader Michael hand selected three beautiful stones. After studying the stones in-store, and learning how to use a jewellers loupe the client eventually chose a H VS 1.33 brilliant cut which we think looks stunning. We think he chose extremely well, and she definitely said yes!
This ornate three stone ring was created by the “groom to be” using much loved diamonds from jewellery already in the family – two brilliant cut diamonds and an emerald cut centre stone. He then wanted us to add a halo of diamonds around each stone and onto the shoulders. Like Harry, he chose a yellow shank with the diamonds set in white gold. The intricate detail on the collet was designed just for him. This beautiful ring, a precious family heirloom with a creative modern twist is sure to remain in the family for evermore.
Whether you choose a bespoke piece or one of our stunning designs, a Brown & Newirth ring takes your love story and turns all your fleeting moments into a lasting memory to wear forever.
