White gold diamond wedding rings are the perfect choice for a person who wants something modern and elegant. The light coloured metal allows the brilliance of your Diamonds to take center stage and puts all the attention on your stone. White Gold is surging in popularity again after a few years of taking the back seat to yellow & rose gold.

MIXING IT UP
Can't decide on the perfect metal choice? Chose them all.
We have noticed that mixing the metals is both beautiful and eye-catching.
When you mix the metals of your rings it allows you wear other jewellery pieces more easily. You are restricted in the metal choices in the future and let's face it we always like to have multiple choices when it comes to jewellery.
Pave diamonds are set within thin bars of precious metal. The crown of the diamond is level with the surface, this setting produces a “paved” look of pure sparkle and lasts for eternity. This look matches almost all engagement rings and compliments it perfectly.
Claw settings are the epitome of a classic eternity style wedding ring. This 'claw' setting allows the diamonds to be accentuated and highlighted. This style of wedding ring can really add a wow factor the your engagement ring. It is also perfect to wear on it's own.
Channel set wedding rings are a traditional, classic style that has been popular all through the years. The diamonds are securely set in tiny grooves on either side of the diamonds. This style can look stunning next to an alternative cut Diamond Engagement Ring like Oval or Emerald.
A bexel set wedding ring is when the metal encircles the diamonds at the sides. This leaves the the top of the diamond visible and the rest is safely nestled away. Definitely a great choice to create a unique look especially if paired with a different metal Engagement Ring.
