When you look at the latest news about the recent starry engagements, what is the first question that pops into your mind? For a lot of us, it is about their sigh-worthy engagement rings and who they were designed by! From unusual coloured diamond stunners to gazillion carat blinding rocks, the rings get better and bolder each year. There are a few international jewellery designers and renowned brands that have captivated us for decades, making up a very exquisite wedding jewellery lust list:
Harry Winston – A favourite with Hollywood’s glitterati, Harry Winston and the House of Winston, have been known to produce some of the finest engagement rings and wedding bands from the 1930s. Also a red carpet top favourite, this brand’s jewellery is known for its exquisite craftsmanship and beautifully set diamonds.
Harry Winston’s love affair with diamonds and his eye for detail is very evident in the finished pieces. You many have seen some of the handiwork on gorgeous ladies like Elizabeth Taylor (hers was a whopping 70 carat stone!!) and Jennifer Garner, among others.
Cartier – Like Harry Winston, Cartier is a symbol of prestige and pretty much among the top picks in the wish list for any bride to be or any jewellery lover for that matter! Cartier has been outfitting royals and the crème de la crème from 1847.

Like their beautiful royal tiaras, expensive watches and necklines, Cartier engagement rings continue to stun with their elaborate designs, modern and traditional styles and deliciously large diamonds. One of Cartier’s most known creations – Grace Kelly’s 10+ carat emerald cut diamond engagement ring from the Prince Rainier III of Monaco. Much of her wedding jewellery was Cartier too.
Neil Lane – Another celeb darling, Neil Lane is one of the most acclaimed jewellery design the world over. He is known for his beautiful hand-crafted jewellery, Art Deco designs and dreamy vintage collection pieces. From being a glamourous statement piece at the Oscars to glimmering on celeb’s engagement fingers,
Neil Lane jewellery never fails to impress. Famous fans include Jessica Simpson, Reese Witherspoon, Gwen Stefani and Madonna, among many others. Innovative and ever evolving Lane’s creations are always appreciated. The Art Deco engagement rings are especially fine.
Although purchasing a beautiful wedding ring from the jewelers mentioned above may entail selling a kidney…or two, some designers have started retailing pieces at lower priced stores as well. We may not end up with a 10 carat rock, but hey a girl can dream can’t she! Stay tuned for more on exquisite wedding jewellery from Marry Me wedding planners in Mumbai.
