Tiffany Diamond Engagement Rings
The engagement ring as we know it today, and the romantic traditions that surround it, are in large part the creation of world-renowned jeweler Tiffany & Co. Diamonds have long been an expression of affection and power. But it was Tiffany & Co. that turned these gems into the most exquisite and dazzling jewelry the world has ever seen. Tiffany’s insistence on absolute perfection produced diamonds of superior beauty. Each is a symbol that is worthy of true love and the promise of a lifetime of shared happiness together.
With the introduction of the Tiffany® Setting in 1886, founder Charles Lewis Tiffany started a trend that grew into a cherished custom. This innovative setting lifts the diamond off the band into the light, maximizing the stone’s natural radiance. It remains the world’s most beautiful diamond ring and a popular symbol of true love, celebrated in literature, art and film.
Among them is Lucida®, an exclusive diamond cut with a setting of clean, sensuous curves. The diamond’s square mixed-cut shape combines the classic elegance of a step-cut crown and a brilliant-cut pavilion. Together these two faceting styles strike a balance between period cutting, with an emphasis on line, and modern-style cutting, with an emphasis on brilliance.
Tiffany Novo®, a brilliant cushion cut inspired by the faceting of the famed Tiffany Diamond, epitomizes style now and for all time, with every subtlety of chic and originality brought to stunning fruition. Set in a customized mounting of four sleek, tapered prongs, the diamond generates an extraordinary show of light.
Tiffany Soleste is a cushion modified brilliant diamond encircled by a double row of exquisite bead-set diamonds. And Tiffany Harmony is a round diamond in a tapered platinum setting that is coupled with a contoured wedding band of impeccable style.
These icons are joined by other masterpieces such as Tiffany Legacy®, inspired by a period design from the early 1900s. It features a cushion-shaped modified brilliant-cut diamond (exclusive to Tiffany & Co.) surrounded by a frame of bead-set diamonds.
Tiffany Grace pairs a princess-cut diamond with a band of round brilliant diamonds. The exquisite faceting creates a ring of pure radiance.
Tiffany Embrace is a ring of true romance, starting with a round brilliant center diamond. The stone is complemented by a circle of bead-set diamonds that also accent the band.
For over 175 years, Tiffany has been renowned for the incomparable quality of its diamonds. The jeweler outshines all others with the sheer charisma of what are, measurably, the world’s finest diamonds.
Tiffany’s diamond standards are far more stringent than those established by the industry. The jeweler accepts only .02 percent of gem-quality stones, which are graded at the Tiffany Gemological Laboratory, one of few such facilities operated by jewelry retailers. The laboratory’s master diamond graders give individual grades for cut, color, clarity, carat weight and presence. In the process, other diamond reports are frequently overruled.
These top-tier diamonds are placed in the hands of skilled diamond cutters who cut for brilliance, adhering to a strict geometric plan with exacting measurements, including precision of cut and symmetry. Together these factors give Tiffany diamonds their extraordinary presence: a breathtaking show of light, with utmost dispersion and scintillation created when light enters the stone, reaching the perfectly positioned facets and mirrored directly back through the crown.
All Tiffany diamonds are set within customized mountings to accommodate the specific size and shape of the diamond. With attention to balance and individual scale, Tiffany master setters, connoisseurs of their craft, create a cohesive, hand-finished and hand-polished setting that shoulders the diamond with consummate grace and respect. In addition, the diamonds are set in platinum with a higher level of purity, which complements the diamond’s high color grade as well as strongly securing the stone in its setting.
Tiffany also offers lifetime services including cleaning, inspection and ring sizing. The extended services and certificate documenting a Tiffany diamond’s preeminence are proof positive of the company’s commitment to a heritage of excellence.
