Empire - Timeless Style for Generations
Our elegant Empire dress ring is inspired by an heirloom passed through several generations of the family of our director, Julie Tattersfield. “I remember Mum wearing this ring when she went ‘out’. It would be somewhere she wanted to look glamourous,” says Julie.
The ring young Julie so admired was a classic emerald cut yellow sapphire, accented by a diamond halo with delicate corner detail. This family heirloom originated from Julie’s grandmother who gifted it to Julie’s mother. Its journey through the family before gracing Julie’s hand adds a significance to the ring that still warms Julie when she wears it.
“I inherited it from Mum and have loved wearing it when I want to feel special.”
Classic, timeless style
Inspired by Julie’s family heirloom, our master jewellers crafted our Empire dress ring – a beautiful emerald cut coloured gemstone accented with high clarity diamonds. The statement setting is balanced by a simple and delicate band in either rose, white or yellow gold. With the stone anchored in its diamond halo by elegant corner detail, the result is truly timeless style.
“I especially love the detailing in the corners. Everyone notices it!”
Aquamarine and Morganite Empire Dress Rings
Our selection of Empire dress rings includes statement gemstones such as aquamarine and morganite. The soft blues or delicate rose hues of these stones add elegance and freshness to each piece. These stones are set in 18 carat rose, white or yellow gold, ensuring the right match for your skin tone.
Getting the perfect fit
Your own heirloom piece should fit your finger perfectly. We usually make our Empire rings for women size N but bands made in rose, white or yellow gold can be made smaller or larger as needed. You can also have your Empire ring custom made with your preferred coloured gemstone – another way to get the perfect fit!
