Like so many of our customs today, engagement rings can be traced all the way back to Ancient Rome. Rather than a symbol of love however, early Romans ‘claimed’ their bride-to-be by presenting an iron ring which represented strength, permanence and ownership.
Diamonds were first used in engagement rings in the 15th Century. Yet it wasn’t until 1947, when British mining company De Beers launched their iconic “A Diamond is Forever” campaign, that diamonds soared in popularity.
In recent years, we have started to see a shift in engagement ring preferences. Though the diamond engagement ring is still the most popular choice, people are beginning to move towards less traditional designs with more and more couples opting for coloured stones, vintage pieces and non-traditional materials – each looking for a ring to best reflect their unique personality and style. Facets signature engagement ring collection features a stunning variety of classic and contemporary engagement rings to suit most tastes.
