Engagement Rings are worn to signify that the wearer is engaged to be married and is most commonly given at the time of the proposal, although some couples choose to pick the ring out together after this point as this can ensure that both are happy with the design.

From within the heart of London’s Jewellery Quarter, London Rocks pride themselves on bringing something different to Hatton Garden’s bespoke jewellery shops. After an initial consultation, our engagement rings are then made to order according to your unique styles, preferences, and budget. With such a tailored process, this allows you to customise every step of the design, including materials, finish, and additional touches such as engraving.
Creating your own exquisite handmade engagement ring is a very personal journey. From initial inspiration to the final project, we’ll help you to make your ring special and exclusive to you.
Visiting our Engagement Ring Shop
Our shop front provides an opportunity to view our wide range of engagement ring designs on offer, as well as expertly crafted wedding rings, eternity rings, and bespoke fine jewellery. A feature glass floor allows our visitors to look down at the craftsmen in our workshop on the level below, where you can see first-hand how our unique commissions are made.
Our workshop is where we lovingly hand make all our bespoke pieces, and it’s at the heart of everything we do.
After meeting with couples to discuss the initial design and concept of their engagement ring, our master craftsmen will work alongside some of the best stone dealers in the world in order to seek out the finest gemstones for your budget. All our diamonds we sell are conflict free and GIA certified so you can rest assured that your ring will be of the upmost quality and ethicality.
After 4-6 weeks, (or your specified deadline), you’ll be presented with an engagement ring that perfectly represents your relationship and will be treasured for years to come.
Which Engagement Ring Style is Right for Me?
Deciding on just one style for your engagement ring can be a tough choice. We’re able to create rings in a variety of shapes and sizes, from the traditional solitaire to the more vintage inspired halo cut – there’s a style that will suit everyone.
One way to tell which style you should opt for is by first considering any other jewellery you currently wear, and any planned jewellery for the future such as your wedding ring. You should also consider your day to day lifestyle, as the amount of wear and tear that your ring is likely to endure will determine the type of metal that your engagement ring should be.
Whatever the case may be, our resident jewellery experts will help you to discover the right style for you during your consultation.
What Should I Consider About My Partner Beforehand?
What is their personal style?
Once you think about the types of jewellery and accessories that your partner likes to wear already, then you may have an idea of the type of engagement ring style that they’ll prefer – do they lean more towards statement pieces, or more classic styles such as a four claw solitaire?
What kind of job do they have?
If they have a hands-on job, such as a chef or an artist, then it would be worth considering a ring that will be able to stand some external stress. On the other hand, if they work in an office-based job then you can go a little more extravagant or delicate.
When do you plan on proposing?
If there is an upcoming event, birthday, or holiday, then you may want to consider both how this will factor into your budget, and also the deadlines for the actual creation of the ring – our lead times are typically 4-6 weeks, however we can work to tighter deadlines if desired.
How Do I Know What Their Ring Size is?
There are many ways to go about finding out this information if you want to keep the ring a secret. You can borrow a ring from their current selection and make a quick trip to a jewellers to get it sized, or the easier option (where you’ll be less likely to get caught!) is to print out a ring size guide and simply measure it against an existing ring to get an accurate size estimate.
However you decide to do it, there’s no need to panic if it turns out that you went a little too small or big, as we offer free resizing on all our engagement rings.
