It seems like there are so many options today in the engagement ring market; everyone wants something different, something unique, something beautiful…and they should get it!
We are proud to carry many designers here at Independent Jewellers, but there are a couple that I would like to mention. Scott Kay engagement rings are very traditional in there look (I have mentioned them before here). They like to use lots of diamonds on their rings so you will find many Scott Kay rings with micro-set pave on the shoulders of the ring.
Two other designers we are proud to have, that most Canadians have never heard of, are Mark Schneider and Frederic Sage. Each designer makes incredibly unique pieces, rings that I am convinced you will not find anything like in any other jewellery store. The quality of their product is superb, and since they are both smaller design companies, it is easy for us to just pick up the phone and talk to Mark or Frederic directly. That is a convenience that is usually not available with larger companies.
Most of our rings today are stocked as semi-mount product. What “semi-mount” means is that the ring you see in the showcase is made of gold, all the small little diamonds are diamonds, however, the center stone is a CZ (Cubic Zirconium). The reason we do this is simple: 99% of the time we have to special order the ring in. And this is good! This way we can customize the ring to each individuals preference, and we can order it in the proper size (as most couples shop together, we can get her ring size). Often the couple will want a specific size diamond in the center, with specific quality characteristics, and if you don’t find the diamond you want in our collection of loose diamonds, we will find the diamond and bring it in. The perfect ring for the perfect girl!
