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.

Why is ethical sourcing so important?

Without proper ethical sourcing, you may unwittingly buy a blood diamond, helping finance criminal armies in war-torn areas. The only way to guarantee a diamond is ethical is to go beyond the flawed  Kimberley Process and trace it to its source, which we do for all of our diamonds.

Ethical sourcing also means protecting the environment and human rights, which is why we use recycled or Fairtrade gold, as well as Fairmined silver and recycled platinum.

How to choose a princess cut diamond

The princess cut diamond is the second most popular shape of diamond for engagement rings after the round brilliant cut. We’ve provided some guidance below to help you decide whether a princess cut diamond is the right option for you, and you may also wish to read our general guidance on diamond grading.

Princess cut diamond plot

The square modified brilliant cut

In terms of the major diamond shapes, the princess cut is a relatively new innovation, with several variations developed by different cutters since the 1960s. 

The technical name for a princess cut is ‘square modified brilliant’. It combines the stepped faceting seen in emerald cuts and Asscher cuts with the triangular facets of a brilliant cut. Unlike the emerald cut and Asscher cut though, it has right angled corners, and as a brilliant cut it offers more sparkle than either of these.

More diamond for your money

Most rough diamonds are broadly octahedral in shape, which makes cutting a square shaped diamond like a princess cut less wasteful than other shapes. A cutter would be doing well if he retains 50% of the rough weight in a round brilliant cut, while 80% would not be unusual for a princess cut. This lower wastage means that you get a larger polished diamond for your money.

Look out for colour in the corners

Princess cuts tend to show colour quite strongly in their corners, putting more of a premium on the higher colour grades. H colour is a reasonable lower cut off if you want a white diamond, though ideally you would focus on diamonds graded G or better if your budget will allow it.

Eye-clean down to VS2

If a princess cut diamond has been graded by one of the more reputable gemological laboratories, such as The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), you can afford to be relatively lenient with the clarity grades that you will consider. The sparkle from the brilliant faceting helps to obscure small inclusions, so that anything down to VS2 should be flawless to the naked eye. 

No consensus on the ideal proportions

Not all princess cut diamonds are perfectly square, so it is worth checking to see how close the length and width of the diamond are. 

There is no consensus within the industry as to the ideal proportions for a princess cut, so a GIA-certified princess will not have a ‘cut’ grade listed on its certificate. The certificate will list a grade for polish and a grade for symmetry, but by themselves these are not enough to tell you how well the diamond will sparkle.

However, there are a couple of other clues on the certificate. Firstly, you should check that the total depth is between 68% and 75%, as stones that are exceptionally deep or shallow are likely to ‘leak’ light out of the pavilion, and won’t return light as well as they should. The other factor you can check is the Table Width, which should be between 70% and 75%. A diamond with a really wide or really narrow table is unlikely to perform well.

These two checks are indicators only, that will help you weed out obviously unsuitable stones. In the end, though, you will need to view the stone or get someone you trust to assess it for you.
