Hancocks London will unveil its first new collection since lockdown easing this summer, the Bezel collection which features a selection of diamond rings, designed by the jeweller and handcrafted in Britain, during the pandemic.
The collection comprises a series of rings ranging from £3,950 to bespoke commissions and officially launches this month, both in its shop, located in Mayfair’s Burlington Arcade, and also online.
Guy Burton, director of Hancocks London, said: “With this collection we wanted to keep the focus on the beautiful antique and vintage diamonds we use rather than embellishing these stones with too many other gems or elaborate settings.
“The beauty of a bezel style setting is its elegance and simplicity. This type of setting, which is also known as a rub over setting, suits all sizes and shapes of diamonds.”
He added: “For example, we have used it on rounded shapes such as old mine cuts and old European cuts as well as straight and pointed shapes such as emerald-cuts and pear shapes. The gold carefully encircles the widest part of the stone and can be used to really accentuate and call attention to the shape of that stone.”
