Rings have been symbols of commitment and love for thousands of years. Ancient Romans and Egyptians believed that the vein on the fourth finger of the left-hand runs directly to the heart.  To this day, wedding bands and engagement rings are worn on this finger.

Their circular shape embodies something never-ending.  Circles stand for renewal and rebirth, which is entirely what love is.  Engagement rings encapsulates continuous revival and regeneration that takes place when you go through life with your soulmate.


Diamonds became the traditional gemstone choice for engagement rings in the fifteenth century.  The most durable natural material on the planet, diamonds can withstand fire and intense pressure and cannot be cut by anything apart from other diamonds.  These stones are rare, timeless, and earth-grown, making them the perfect symbol of eternal love.

Strong, (Rated 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness), and crystal clear, diamond rings represent an unbreakable and illuminating bond between soulmates.  Like a diamond, the value and importance of your relationship only increases over time. 

Choosing the cut of your diamond adds a personalised element to your bespoke engagement ring.  For example, a circular-cut diamond evoke quiet, timeless elegance, while a princess cut conveys extravagance and excitement.

Whatever diamond you choose, you can be confident that it will last an eternity.


Precious and semi-precious gemstones can add a pop of colour to your engagement ring.  You can select from a variety of coloured gemstones available at Marc Bendall.

As engagement rings are likely to be worn every day, it is important to decide on gemstones that will be durable, such as rubies and sapphires, however if the wearer is mindful and careful of her special piece, the spectrum of colours to choose from is boundless.
