The trillion cut diamond

This all started with a stone, the 3.40ct trillion cut diamond. Liz had seen it in Instagram, and her partner, Russell wanted us to use it to create her perfect engagement ring.

We all agreed that the design needed to let the diamond sing, so we created a classic platinum mount with a court shaped shank that allows the diamond to take centre stage.

Liz says

Russell knew before he proposed that he wanted something extra special but, most importantly, original as my engagement ring so the hunt began for the perfect stone. Hamlington’s had posted a video on Instagram, and I’d shown it to Russell in a very flippant ‘look at this unusual diamond!’ way.

Without me knowing he made two secretive trips down to Warwick and met with James to start planning. Once Russell proposed, he couldn’t wait to show me the CGI of the ring, and only two weeks later it was ready. Two weeks further down the line and I still can’t stop looking at it. I’ve even had compliments from total strangers!
