Character Limit and Ring Width
We limit our engravings to 40 characters per piece. But please bear in mind that if the ring is a particularly small size, there may be less room to engrave upon. Additionally, the slimmer in width the ring is (i.e. 1.8-3mm) the smaller the font needs to be to fit in and it may become harder to read. We will contact you to arrange a suitable solution if we think there will be any issues.

Sandcast Ring Engraving
Please note that as our sandcast rings are cast in real beach sand there is sometimes some graininess or flecks of sand on the inside of the ring. In some cases, this may slightly obscure areas of the engraving.

You can have anything engraved, from a handwritten date to fingerprints and doodles.

See our commissions gallery for inspiration. Please e-mail us your imagery after you order.

Each of our vintage diamonds is one of a kind – once chosen, it cannot be replaced. The diamond pictured is the diamond you will receive. 

This Old European Cut diamond is a fairly round shape measuring roughly 5.49x5.33mm. It has a lovely, light champagne colour and delicate sparkle.

The stone has been photographed in a temporary setting and can be set in a bespoke ring of your choosing.  The price listed is for this diamond set in a basket claw on a 2mm wide 18ct yellow gold sandcast band.  You can see an example of a finished vintage diamond engagement ring in the final image for reference.

This diamond can be made into a piece of jewellery of your choice. For more information and inspiration we have written a detailed post on designing your bespoke engagement ring here.

Old Mine Cut diamonds are evocative of the past. They were cut by hand hundreds of years ago, following the natural octahedral shape of diamond crystals. As such, the proportions of each stone will vary, and we’ve found that they often come into their own the most when set in yellow gold. They reflect the warmth of the gold beautifully and in much the same way that they would have reflected candlelight many years ago.

Compared to a modern brilliant cut diamond, a Old Mine Cut diamond will certainly look a little more organic, but no two mine cuts will ever be the same.  What they may lack in the industry standard of the four C’s, they make up for with an abundance of individuality, character and a timeless beauty. Compare vintage and modern diamonds here.


Ethics are important to us. We are proud to use Old Mine Cut diamonds in our jewellery as they represent and support an ethical and environmentally considered alternative to modern diamonds, as well as a beautiful piece of continued history.
