Modern ways to wear a diamond ring

Dreaming of a diamond ring? From sculptural designs to lust-have colour, Wed looks at the modern ways to wear the classic gemstone


We all know that diamonds have long been a girl's best friend. But what about the modern bride and groom? Today - like much else in wedding world -nearly weds are taking the traditional diamond ring and adding a contemporary and personalised twist. So, before you buy the first dazzler that catches your eye, consider the exquisite array of options now available to you.

You might choose a ring with texture for an alluringly organic and less formal style - as beautifully achieved by Emily Nixon's sculptural designs; in particular, her stunning urchin rings with rub over settings, and rough diamond pieces. Or opt for a fabulous golden coloured diamond such as that pictured in a warm cinnamon brown.

For statement style, Justin Duance's breath-taking black eternity ring is replete with wow factor, while his white and coloured diamonds (especially blues, yellows and cognacs) are also proving a popular choice. Or why not fuse form with meaning with an antique cut heirloom diamond worked into one of Justin's signature textural mountings? And, for grooms keen for their wedding ring to echo their fiancee's engagement ring, Justin's diamond rock rings blend a smatter of sparkle with a masculine aesthetic.

Remember to also consider your choice of metal. Think about both the setting and shade of your chosen diamond to help you discover the most beautifully 'you' band. Erin Cox's contemporary designs merge fair trade materials with stunning, swoon-worthy results, such as her blue diamond marquise ring with carved white diamond shoulders in white gold, or this dazzling diamond solitaire in white and yellow gold. Dazzling.
