1. Origin Solitaire ring, £2250

Let's start with the ultimate classic. An 18ct yellow gold solitaire. A single round diamond takes centre stage held in place by a four-claw setting. Truly timeless, it will never go out of style – solitaires have been one of the most popular ring styles for over a century thanks to their supreme simplicity.

Handcrafted using recycled 18ct gold, the responsibly sourced 0.30ct diamond is safely secured thanks to its four-claw setting. Not only can you trace every step of the conflict-free diamond's journey from its origin, this Origin by Ernest Jones engagement ring also comes with a certificate of authenticity as a mark of its ethics, sustainability and quality.

Perfect for: Those who love classic styles to pass down to their grandchildren.

Just like every Vera Wang LOVE piece, this ring is beautifully crafted to last - just like you and your partner.
