Choose your style


If you’re choosing or designing a ring without your partner’s direct input, pay attention to how she reacts to other women’s engagement rings, or if she points out rings she likes! These helpful little ‘hints’ will help us find or create the perfect ring. It may also be worth speaking to her girlfriends and relatives for advice.

There is a wide range of different styles that you may wish to consider, from classic solitaire engagement rings (set with one stone), to trilogy rings (set with three stones), to vintage engagement rings (often set with lots of small diamonds). Perhaps she loves Art Deco engagement rings that capture the romance of a bygone age? Or maybe she prefers the simple elegance of more contemporary, modern engagement rings?


SELECT YOUR GEMS


Choosing the right diamond or gemstone is vital, and usually the biggest factor in determining the price of an engagement ring. We offer a stunning range of conflict-free diamonds and ethically-produced gemstones, which can all be traced back to mine-of-origin.

Diamonds are valued according to their weight (carats) and their quality (colour, clarity and cut), known as the 4 Cs.

The shape of a gem has a significant impact on the style of ring. The most popular options are the round brilliant cutprincess cut, emerald cut, cushion cut, oval cut, pear cut, radiant cut, and marquise cut.

But remember, diamonds are not the only option! You may also wish to consider sapphire engagement rings, ruby engagement rings, or emerald engagement rings.

Precious Metals

SELECT YOUR PRECIOUS METAL


We offer both certified Fairtrade gold and recycled gold and platinum. Choose from 18ct yellow gold, 18ct white gold, 18ct rose gold or platinum 950.

If she already wears jewellery, see which metal colour she seems to prefer. Yellow gold is traditional, but white gold and platinum are overwhelmingly the most popular choices. Platinum is a stronger than gold, which can have advantages for settings, but costs a little more.

Rose gold is a little bit more unusual, which might work well if you’re looking for something a bit different.

Our certified Fairtrade gold helps to provide better living and working conditions for small-scale miners and their communities. Our recycled gold and platinum has been refined back to its pure form before it is alloyed, so that it is of identical quality to newly-mined precious metals, but without the environmental impact.

GETTING THE RIGHT RING SIZE

Before you purchase a ring, you’ll need to decide on the size you want. Your ring should be tight enough that it will not come off your finger inadvertently, but not so tight as to be uncomfortable.

Fantastic from start to finish. The shop is located in a beautiful part of London which is easy to get to. Inside the shop itself I felt comfortable and relaxed. Being the first time buying an engagement ring I thought I might feel pressured but that was not the case. After ordering the ring communication was great throughout and delivery was on time. Upon opening the box I was taken aback by the how flawless the ring looked. I was genuinely lost for words. Thanks to all the staff at Ingle and Rhode that helped me pick the most perfect ring.

Beautiful, ethical jewellery - can't recommend enough! I am so glad that I found Ingle & Rhode when looking to buy my partner an engagement ring - they are superb, and the products are wonderful. Buying an ethical ring was really important to my partner and I, and so I was immediately drawn in by Ingle & Rhode - unlike a lot of ethical jewellery companies, their rings are still very contemporary.. which was exactly what my partner wanted! I had a couple of calls with Ellie during the process, who was so helpful - despite not having a great idea of what to go for, she was decisive and led me towards my own decisions; highly recommend speaking with the team, because they are wonderful (and lovely people too). Can't recommend using Ingle and Rhode highly enough - my partner loved the ring that I chose, and we would definitely use them again for jewellery in the future.

Excellent process for bespoke engagement ring Excellent process, from start to finish. I emailed to begin the process of designing a bespoke ring. Within 2 days I had an in person meeting to discuss ideas. I was shown some examples and given brilliant advice by Ellie, who I found extremely reassuring throughout. The designer, Hayley, sent me initial sketches 1-2 weeks after the in person appointment. Hayley was very patient and again provided brilliant advice. Hayley was quick to create new design iterations based on my feedback. After many back and forward emails, the design was finalised and CAD mockups were provided. The mockups were extremely accurate when comparing with the finished product. The entire process, from first email to collection, took 6 weeks for a bespoke ring made with recycled platinum and a beautiful pear diamond (which was 2-4 weeks faster than their estimate). Communication was excellent and they were very keen to fit deadlines around plans I had in place. Ring resizing was required (my estimations were 4 sizes off!). I rang to book an appointment for a professional measurement and was able to meet the same day with short notice. The ring is to be collected within 7 working days. Overall the entire process was excellent. I felt very well looked after, very reassured and found all staff genuinely trustworthy. Above all else, my partner loves the ring and we are both extremely happy.

From Russia With Love Cannot express how grateful I am to have ended up using Ingle & Rhode to construct an engagement ring for my now fiancé! I was absolutely clueless how to go about finding a ring but quickly realised I knew what style I wanted and enquired about designing and constructing a ring. From the moment Ellie got in touch she made the whole experience effortless and with Hayley's design help produced drawings of a ring that were exactly what I had pictured - all this achieved via email from an oil rig in Eastern Russia! I received the ring once home and upon opening the box I could not believe Ingle & Rhode were able to turn a few emails into such a perfect and incredible ring that was just a thought I my head only weeks before. We are now very happily engaged and the ring could not mean more to us given the nature of how it came to be and what it now represents. Once again, I cannot thank Ellie enough. All the best Ally

Perfection. From the initial meet to the final ring, ever step of the process was incredibly. I surprised my (now) fiancé with a diamond ring and everything was perfect. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to get an engagement ring for their partner.
