As the saying goes, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Whether you’re lucky enough to have a significant other to buy you sparkly things or you’re lucky enough to be able to buy them for yourself, finding the perfect ring can be a bit of a minefield. From luxurious brands where you pay for the name and the box to high-end jewellers that source rare stones, it can be hard to know where to shop. For those who like to shop local and are after quality pieces without the markup, Temple & Grace might be the perfect place for you.
A Sydney-based engagement and wedding ring specialist (although they do other pieces too), all Temple & Grace’s jewellery is handcrafted in-house, meaning they cut out the middle man, saving you money without cutting out the quality.
Temple & Grace pride themselves on finessing each piece of jewellery they craft, ensuring it fits your measurements and expectations perfectly. They have a wide range of beautiful pieces to suit every budget too, from titanium and zirconia to platinum and GIA certified loose diamonds.
We’ve been having a dreamy scroll through the website and have fallen in love with these unique diamond engagement rings we’d propose to ourselves with.
Classic Round Brilliant Engagment Ring With A Diamond Halo
We’ve got to start with a classic here. This absolute beauty stars a round, brilliant-cut 1.8ct diamond with 0.5ct forming a halo and dotting along the front of the band. The versatile, timeless design means you’ll be admiring this ring for decades to come, and would pair easily with some other simple rings when styling.
Pear Cut Diamond Engagement Ring With A Diamond Halo
The owner of this ring is definitely a stylish, wealthy individual, most likely marrying into a family of status, wealth and lots of drama. Featuring a 1.2ct pear cut diamond with 0.5ct of diamonds creating a halo and spilling onto the front of the band, this ring means business. We’d let it take centre stage on our hand and wouldn’t dare pair it with other fashion pieces for fear of offending it.
Marquise Cut Engagement Ring On A Diamond Band
A marquis cut is something a little bit different to your standard cuts, but we imagine this one to suit a contemporary, sartorial woman. It manages to be simple but striking at the same time, and is sure to be noticed on your finger without being ostentatious. With a 0.8ct marquis cut diamond in the centre and diamonds halfway across the band, this is a piece as unique as the wearer.
Round Brilliant Cut Engagment Ring On A Drop Set Diamond Band
The classic round diamond ring gets an elegant upgrade with this piece. The 0.9ct round brilliant cut diamond in the centre sits on a six claw setting and a beautifully crafted diamond band, with the shape of the band following the shape of the diamonds rather than being a smooth arc.
Round Brilliant Cut Engagement Ring With A Floral Diamond Halo
Though this ring has a floral diamond halo, to us it looks like a pretty snowflake, which is why we love it. It reminds us of our adventures in Scandinavia and we’d be happy to accept this ring from a tall, handsome Norwegian man. The centre features a 0.7ct round brilliant cut diamond with another 0.7ct floral halo, set on a simple but elegant band.
