Perfect Engagement

Summer is a beautiful season; full of sunshine, birdsong and the chime of wedding bells. It is the season of choice for many brides and grooms across the country. For many, it is also the right time to pop the question in the first place. An idyllic day in summer is the perfect time for a romantic engagement, whether you do so in a restaurant, by the lakeside or even abroad. The only thing missing? The perfect ring to mark this occasion forevermore.


This stunning one stone, platinum ring, is a piece that has an amazingly clear emerald-cut diamond. The cut was originally developed for the stone of the same name, but it has recently become overwhelmingly popular as its cropped corners and step-like facets are attractive on all stones. This particular diamond has been assessed by the HRD and is certified as I colour and VVS2 clarity. Perched in a four claw setting, this is a classic Memoire design.


If you are looking for a band with a slightly more unusual metal, then a palladium band ring is a perfect choice. The diamonds set on this attractive metal include a baguette cut diamond on each shoulder, which include step cuts much like the emerald diamond, each beautifully accentuating the main brilliant cut diamond which is proudly presented atop six claws. This gem has been certified as nearly colourless, with an SI2 clarity and a stunning 2.11 carats. Light bounces off this amazing stone and creates a sparkle like no other. This is a ring that is bound to catch the eye, perfect for anyone with an eye for the bright and unusual


However, you may desire a more personal choice to the ring that will be worn by your love for the rest of their life. Here at Banks Lyon, we have an experienced in-house designer who can help bring all of your dreams to life. Our team will help solidify your thoughts, putting them to paper with the help of our expert advice to create a stunning piece for your true love. This will be down to the four C’s of gem choice: colour, clarity, cut and carat. All very important decisions when you are creating a ring. The precious metal used as the band is also something you can decide upon at this point.

When the main features of the ring have been decided upon, a Computer Generated Impression will be created to help you see what the final piece will look like when it is fully realised. Once you are truly happy, the creation of your ring will commence. Our talented team of goldsmiths will cast the ring in the highest quality. It will then be hallmarked at the Birmingham Assay Office. The final stage will see your piece polished, set and mounted by talented hands.

The quality of our bespoke pieces speaks for itself. We continually assess the process, ensuring that every step is as efficient and precise as possible to create the best pieces possible.
