When shopping for engagement rings, you may come across rings labeled “Designer Engagement Rings”, but what does that mean? These ring designs are often branded, making them signature pieces of the company they represent. Buyers often remember designer names and style, as they are typically associated with aristocracy—and, in turn, higher price points.
Some of the most well-known engagement ring designers include Tiffany & Co., Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Neil Lane. These brands are considered luxury lifestyle brands, commonly worn by both celebrities and royalty. Like couture clothing, designer jewelry is of the highest quality and features stunning detail and design work. These rings and jewels come at a higher price, but the work put into each designer piece goes beyond any stock design. Designer engagement rings—like all designer pieces—are set to the highest caliber of perfection.
Some of the best engagement ring designers and their flagship brands also create collections for mainstream buyers, lending their names to designs that are found in retail jewelry stores. Designers Vera Wang and Neil Lane both have created engagement ring designs for the masses. However, jewelry brands like Tacori may also be deemed “designer.”
Designer Engagement Rings at Brilliance
At Brilliance, we offer a line of exceptionally beautiful designer engagement rings by Parade Designs. Brothers Allen and William Pung are the artistic minds behind Parade Designs, an award-winning team whose jewelry has been seen in movies and television, and worn on red carpets around the world. This collection pulls from the beauty of nature, weaving in vines and swirling petals with details of diamond accents that create a dynamic statement. Only the finest metals are used in rings within this collection—Parade’s white gold is infused with durable Palladium to ensure optimum strength and incomparable beauty.
Like other designer collections, Parade ensures that each ring features the finest details, down to the last tiny diamond. Metals are polished to reflect the most brilliant shine or buffed for a satin finish. Every stone is lined up meticulously, so that your ring—your investment—is flawless to the eye. All Parade Design engagement rings may be set with a centerpiece diamond of your choice.
The Parade Design collection also offers ring options for every budget—from simple intricate solitaire settings to ornate vintage-inspired designs. Parade’s Antique Lyria Bloom Halo Diamond Engagement Ring was recognized by The Knot as the Best in Bridal Winner for vintage design!
