FAQs

What is a dress ring?

A dress ring is any ring that is not a promise ring, engagement ring or wedding band. Dress rings are usually reserved for special occasions and worn on the middle finger or index finger. They are also known as fashion rings or cocktail rings.

What kind of coloured gemstones and metals can I use in a dress ring?

Dress rings can be white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or two-tone and feature any variation of coloured gemstones like sapphires, rubies or emeralds. Traditionally, dress rings featured a coloured gemstone in the centre of the ring surrounded by a halo of smaller accent stones, usually diamonds.

How is a dress ring different to an engagement ring?

Engagement rings feature a focal centre diamond, whereas dress rings traditionally have a coloured gemstone in the centre surrounded by smaller halo or shoulder stones. Modern day diamond dress rings and cocktail rings, however, don’t adhere to strict design guidelines and can include a simple gold band of diamonds or gemstones without a centre stone.

How do I design a custom dress ring?

Dress rings can be customised by diamond and gemstone shape, setting type, carat, metal type and band width. The addition of milgrain edging and other metal detailing can also be used to customise dress ring designs, and stackable dress rings can be used to create an opulent display of layered gold dress rings.

What is a diamond dress ring?

A diamond dress ring adds a touch of luxe to any outfit, whether it’s work attire, or something more formal. The more extravagant, modern diamond dress rings are usually reserved for special occasions like evening wear and formal events.

What is a cocktail ring?

A cocktail ring is a lavish dress ring commonly featuring coloured gemstones and diamonds. Similar in size and design complexity to a modern engagement ring, cocktail rings are usually worn on the middle finger or index finger to cocktail parties and black tie events as a statement jewellery piece, often with matching diamond earrings.
