At Jacqueline & Edward, we understand that you might want to propose, but like a mountain of other people in your position (including me once upon a time), you have no idea which ring to buy or even whether you want something bespoke designed. You simply know you are in love and you want to make a permanent commitment to the person with whom you want to spend the rest of your life with. We get it. Because of this, Jacqueline & Edward have launched our proposal ring service. The ring is sleek and elegant, gives the wow factor of the proposal moment, but leaves the flexibility of final design to a later date. We’ve chosen a classic solitaire ring because we agree with countless others that they are a timeless classic.
It would not be Jacqueline & Edward without adding adding a splash of “the unique” and embracing “the ethical”, so we’ve developed a range of options you can choose from:
Package A) We supply your proposal ring with a 0.50ct equivalent cubic zirconia centre stone and following your proposal you send the ring back to us. We will deduct £200 from the cost of any engagement you choose. This proposal ring will be used again and again by Jacqueline & Edward in the future, leading to a materially conscious choice and a ring endowed with an endless river of stories.
Package B) We supply your proposal ring with a 0.50ct equivalent cubic zirconia centre stone and following your proposal you send back the ring to us and we re-use the silver in the engagement ring you proposed with to contribute to the alloy in your final engagement ring. We will deduct £200 from the cost of any engagement you choose. All 18ct gold whether rose, white or yellow requires silver in the alloy. As such, you can retain the meaning in the metal used to pop the big question and wrap that memory in the engagement ring with the diamond and design of your choice.
Package C) We supply your proposal ring with your choice of diamond. By choosing this option, you can have the final engagement ring made with both the stone you proposed with as well as the metal in the ring itself. We will deduct £200 and the cost of your chosen centre stone from the cost of any engagement you choose. Both elements would just be incorporated into the final ring of your choice. We can create ethical engagement rings with any shape or colour of diamonds so get in touch if you have any special requirements for diamond shapes, sizes and / or colours for your proposal ring if they are not available in the options presented.
Because at the heart of Jacqueline & Edward are ethics and design, we offer a complimentary design service to anyone who buys a proposal ring and then feels the best option for them is to have a unique ring designed. Whilst there are a number of designs available on the Jacqueline & Edward website, we recognise that the selection is in its infancy and we would love to help you create anything your mind can conjure up whether that be a simple classic solitaire or something more complex. Another idea would be to join us on one of our panning experiences following the proposal and then have the gold you find added into your very own handmade ethical engagement ring to a design of your choosing.
