The Tiffany setting was the first engagement ring to lift the diamond off the band, and Tiffany & Co founder Charles Lewis Tiffany did this so that more light could pass through the diamond, creating a dazzling sparkle. Thanks to his early innovation, this style has become the standard bearer in diamond rings, and our hands shine all the brighter for it.
Tiffany & Co remains a stalwart of the engagement ring market, with thousands of couples flocking to its stores each year to select a ring. While the Tiffany setting remains its most enduring style, the American jewellery brand diversified this year with the introduction of its first new engagement ring design in more than a decade.
What is so striking about the new Tiffany & Co True engagement ring is that while the original Tiffany setting became a star for its simplicity, True’s allure lies in its modern complexity. One of Tiffany & Co’s most popular modern collections is Tiffany T, a line of jewellery that celebrates the bold, geometric form of the brand’s initial. Though not immediately obvious, if you twist the shank to look at the True ring side on, you will see that the basket-style setting is crafted into four T shapes that cup a squared fancy-cut diamond.
