19 Eye-Watering Modern Engagement Rings

19 Eye-Watering Modern Engagement Rings

For Women Who Can Handle the Spotlight

When people think of engagement rings, a classic Brilliant-Cut Solitaire often springs to mind - the most traditional of the engagement ring categories and an unmistakable symbol of love and devotion recognised the world over.

But tradition and simplicity aren’t everyone’s engagement ring flavour, with some opting for more extravagant modern engagement rings that could guide a ship to shore in a tropical storm.


What is a modern engagement ring?

Modern engagement rings are the divas of the SH diamond ring collections, renowned for stealing the spotlight wherever they glow. They’re red carpet calibre; the kind that make celebrity engagement ring lists.

Like minimalist engagement rings, they feature a higher carat centre diamond typically set above the rest for dramatic effect, but with a halo of smaller diamonds that spill over into a lavishly encrusted band. Their bands can include multiple splits and contrasting cuts to create unique modern engagement rings in a league of their own.

If you can handle all that dazzle, the exclusively designed range of SH modern engagement rings might just be the bling for you. Without further ado, let’s meet the team…

Featuring a bow-shaped pavé-set band with 36 Brilliant Cut diamonds below an elevated 6-claw Brilliant centre stone, this striking design with graduated Baguette Cuts is the ultimate balance of bold and beautiful.

Featuring a spiraling halo of overlapping diamond-set petals and a Brilliant Cut centre stone discretely set in four claws, this delightful floral design allows the skin to peer through diamond-set split shoulders.

It’s hard to tell where the halo begins and ends in this tiered sea of sparkle. Featuring an elevated Brilliant Cut centre diamond in a square halo with stepped side stones flowing onto a double row band, it’s an excellent choice for maximising your budget - the size of the centre stone is less important when the entire ring is dripping in diamonds.

Beautifully paired with our Cushion Shaped Halo Diamond Stud Earrings, this enchanting design stands the test of time and turns every available surface into a stage of dancing sparkle.
