When Brilliant Earth was founded in 2005, we believed that it was possible to combine exceptional design and craftsmanship with the purest sourcing. Today Brilliant Earth’s design team leads the industry in crafting unique, exclusive designs that combine artistic inspiration with extensive jewelry expertise. In honor of our tenth anniversary our designers looked back at the ten engagement ring styles that made the biggest impression on them and on Brilliant Earth couples.
Willow Diamond Ring
One of our most beloved nature-inspired designs, the Willow Diamond Ring was hand-drawn in our San Francisco Design Studio after an inspiring walk in the park. The trellis design features wispy vines of precious metal and marquise diamond buds that bring the center gemstone to life.
Alvadora Diamond Ring
Classic halo rings have been a big trend for years, and now we see couples seeking out truly distinctive takes on that classic halo design. The vintage inspired Alvadora Diamond Ring has quickly become a customer favorite. Lavishly detailed latticework and a halo of diamonds encircle a bezel set center gemstone, and diamond accents and milgrain detail embellish the shoulders and the gallery.
Riviera Diamond Ring
Part of Brilliant Earth’s Monaco Collection, the remarkable Riviera Diamond Ring features distinctive designer details. Three delicate strands of scalloped pavé diamonds rise to showcase a center gemstone in a sleek dual claw prong setting. Surprise accent diamonds adorn the gallery, creating sparkle from every angle.
Lily Diamond Ring
An enchanting interpretation of nature’s beauty, the extraordinary Lily Ring features a perfectly symmetrical three-dimensional flower design. Twelve petals of pavé diamonds dazzle around the center gemstone and diamonds extend down the sides of the ring for an unforgettable look.
Jolie Diamond Ring
In the alluring, beautifully detailed Jolie Ring, elegant claw prongs embrace the center gemstone in a chic compass point setting. Pavé set diamond accents sparkle from within milgrain-embellished frames on the shoulders, and the gallery features an artistic scrollwork design. The Jolie is a sought after design from our Pretty Little Things Collection, which focused on classic designs updated with delightful surprise touches.
Favorite Custom Engagement Rings
Our design team loves the opportunity to partner with couples to create one-of-a-kind custom engagement rings. These five remarkable custom designs stand out as among the most memorable from our first decade.
Emerald and Trillion Cut Diamond Ring
A custom design created for a bride who adores emeralds, the Emerald and Trillion Cut Diamond Ring showcases a stunning deep green emerald, accented by trillion cut diamonds on either side of the center gem. A gently tapered band adds a designer touch.
Music Note Detail Ring
Created for a couple who is passionate about music, the whimsical Music Note Detail Ring features a round diamond set in a matte yellow gold bezel. The high polish yellow gold band holds surprises on the side: A flush diamond accent and a small engraving of a music note.
Two-Tone Sapphire Double Halo
In the distinctive custom Two Tone Sapphire Double Halo design a double halo of diamonds are set in dramatic dark rhodium, creating an alluring contrast with the ring’s rose gold band. An exquisite teal sapphire at the center is encircled by petite rhodium prongs for a unique twist on a timeless look.
Modern Geometric Engagement Ring
At once classic and very modern, this Modern Geometric Engagement Ring showcases an emerald cut center diamond with two trapezoid-shaped diamonds alongside it and two custom cut bullet-shaped diamond accents. Sleek claw prongs secure the center gem.
Woven Mixed Metal Diamond Ring
This Woven Mixed-Metal Diamond Ring, a truly unique custom design, creates an enchanting interplay between white and rose gold. The six prong setting is delightfully accented by ninety shimmering diamond accents on an elegantly curving, woven band.
