Each tiny diamond used along the band is hand selected by our goldsmiths to match in high colour and clarity quality.

What is a trilogy ring?
A series of three precious gemstones, a trilogy ring typically features one larger centre diamond flanked by two slightly smaller stones. The side stones are usually around half the carat weight each of the centre stone, however the size you opt for is totally up to you. Whilst every diamond is unique, the two side diamonds will be selected to perfectly compliment and match in shape, carat weight, as well as matching the colour and clarity of the centre stone.
