In matters of the heart, there is little decision-making. Love simply chooses you.
However, when selecting an engagement ring that equals the importance of the moment, expert guidance is essential.
Since the 18th century, Asprey has accompanied many a groom in making
the right decisions in fine jewellery.
THE ASPREY SIGNATURE COLLECTION
Round brilliant cut diamond engagement rings in a range of settings: The Solitaire, Pavé Diamond Shoulders and Diamond Tapered Shoulders.
All these rings feature the 'A' mount - a signature Asprey detail carried through from the 1930's.
UNIQUE CUTS AND RARE COLOURS
With a proud tradition of handling some of the world’s rarest natural gemstones, Asprey is renowned for its magnificent jewellery.
Our in-house workshops, diamond cutting room and experienced craftsmen allow Asprey to create engagement jewellery to a client’s specification. Gemstones of the highest quality are carefully selected and individual designs created by our specialists.
Asprey experts evaluate the technical differences between each diamond by using the accepted grading known as the four C’s — colour, clarity, cut and carat weight.
The beauty of an Asprey diamond
engagement ring is defined by its timeless appeal, superior quality and distinctive design. Asprey offers some of the most important diamonds in the world, with stones ranging in size from 0.50 carat to the rare and
exceptional 50-carat stone.
Although apparently colourless to the untrained eye, diamonds can to some degree possess a faint tint. Each diamond’s colour is graded using the internationally recognised Gemological Institute of America System. It ranges from D (colourless and very rare) through to Z (a light yellow brown).
Asprey offers the finest white colour grades of diamonds from D to G.
Diamonds can be many different shapes. The proportions of the cut affect the natural light and brilliance of the stone. Part of the cutter's skill is to find the cut that best unveils and enhances the dazzling fire within each diamond. The shape of the diamond is entirely dependent on personal preference.
It takes billions of years for a single diamond to form. Over this time, tiny pinpoint marks known as inclusions can form inside the structure. This is natural in the formation of a crystal and part of what makes each diamond unique. Inclusions are so small that the stone must be magnified with a 10x lens to find them.
The term ‘internally flawless' is applied only to the very rare examples that possess no inclusions. Asprey sells only diamonds of clarity VS2 or above i.e. with very small inclusions.
The weight of a diamond is measured in carats, with a hundred points making up each carat - the equivalent to 0.2 grams. Larger diamonds are more expensive than smaller ones of the same quality, simply because diamonds become rarer in proportion to their weight.
Each Asprey diamond above 0.50 carats (or 50 points) comes with its individual Gemological Institute of America report.
