Putting a Ring On It: The Best Luxury Engagement Rings

There’s a lot that rests on a proposal. Timing, place, what to say, what to wear.

But the engagement ring is, quite literally, the crown jewel of the moment.

Choosing an engagement ring can often be an overwhelming decision. Finding a ring that reflects personality and still delivers elegance and opulence is no small feat. And considering you also need to take into account venues and dresses, the ring is just one piece of the puzzle.

Custom rings are just one way many have opted to put a ring on it. Israeli-American actress, Natalie Portman’s dazzling engagement ring was custom designed by her husband Bejamin Millepied and jeweller Jamie Wolf.

Each ring is unique, elegant and handmade by some of the most highly sought-after jewellers in Los Angeles. Danhov also boasts eco-friendly production, minimising its use of chemicals and machinery.

Because of this, only one per cent of all diamonds in the world are ever chosen by the luxury label. Choose from two tone gold rings, white gold princess and 18-carat rose-gold cuts.

Tiffany & Co.

It was 1886 when Tiffany first introduced the engagement ring, which has since seen waves of development to become the elegant and classic piece it is today. Tiffany & Co. is a household name in luxury and for good reason too. The brand’s innovation, sustainability and creativity have translated across to their line of engagement rings.

Choose an emerald cut diamond on a rose gold band, or customise from a range of options to find the perfect ring that fits your style.


London-based brand Graff was founded in 1960 by English jeweller and businessman Laurence Graff. Since then, the brand has exploded across the luxury jewellery scene, establishing itself as a high-end label.

Home to a wide range of notable diamonds, Graff has acquired some of the highest-ranking jewels in the world. The Windsor Yellows were obtained by the label in 1987 in Geneva during an auction selling the jewels of the Duchess of Windsor.

Of course they needed re-cutting to bring them to their full potential, I bought all four, repolished them, and eventually made the Windsor earrings.
