The tale of Troilus and Cressida is known as one of Shakespeare’s most modern plays; ahead of its time in its themes of love, war and morality. It has enjoyed renewed interest from 21st-century audiences – and its female protagonist inspired one of our most contemporary engagement ring designs.
The Cressida ring is suitably eye-catching, with a central diamond surrounded by a halo of micro-pavé diamonds. These are set with the utmost precision under a microscope, for a clean and contemporary finish.
The Cressida ring was inspired by the traditional cluster rings of the Victorian and Georgian eras. New technologies have allowed us to develop this timeless style, by setting evermore tiny diamonds around the central stone. As well as making the central diamond appear larger, the modern micro-pavé halo means that light bounces off and between each stone, multiplying and maximising the ring’s brilliance and sparkle.
A delicate, pavé-set diamond band further increases the wow-factor, making the Cressida one of our most dazzling engagement rings – perfect for the glamorous bride-to-be.
Available with a round brilliant, emerald-cut, oval, radiant or cushion-cut diamond, the Cressida is crafted in platinum or 18ct yellow gold. The band is designed to sit flush against a similarly fine wedding ring or eternity ring, allowing you to create a perfectly fitting stack as you mark milestones in your married life.
