For brides who favour a geometric look, this ring by British jeweller Shimell and Madden will set hearts racing.
The structured style of the ring, which feels delicate on the finger, has been created using a technique called “open wirework”.
The 18ct yellow gold eschews the traditional high polish associated with classic engagement rings and instead has a textured finish to create an understated sparkle. At the centre is an unusual, square-cut indicolite tourmaline, a rare blue-green gem that is instantly mesmerising. It’s worth noting that the setting style for the tourmaline makes it sit high from the finger – something to consider if you have an active lifestyle.
When thinking ahead to a matching wedding band, it’s worth considering that the ring’s bands have flat squared edges, and the gold has a brushed finish, so you will need to choose a style that complements it. Luckily, Shimell and Madden does offer several matching bands.
