« It was from you that I said yes to the world»

- Paul Eluard


Your favorite curator of contemporary jewellery is back to guide you in choosing THE designer engagement ring.

The choice of the stone

Diamond or not, what we understand from our clients is that the choice of the stone remains crucial in the purchase of an engagement ring. At WHITEbIRD, you will find a diversity of stones and metals that are out of the ordinary, as well as quality GVS white diamonds.

Original coloured stones and embedded diamonds

At WHITEbIRD, we value originality and authenticity by selecting metals and stones that stand out. Our collections feature smoky diamonds, embedded stones, colored stones (sapphires, emeralds, rubies, quartz, opals, tourmalines...) and patinated gold, offering a range of singular engagement rings.

Often seen as impure in traditional jewelry, embedded and smoky diamonds are for our designers creative and artistic playgrounds, making each piece of jewelry unique and inimitable. This is notably the trademark of the Japanese designer Noguchi Bijoux (one of our best-sellers at WHITEbIRD).

The choice of the stone, beyond its size, now reflects a palette of unique colors and richer textures, telling a story and deriving their value from their originality.

GVS Quality White Diamonds

For those committed to investing in a GIA-certified diamond while seeking innovative design, our Sophie Bille Brahe engagement ring selection is perfect for you! Set with FG Top Wesselton* colored diamonds (near perfection in terms of whiteness) and VVS quality (tiny inclusions, invisible to the naked eye), each ring comes with a quality certificate from the Gemmology Institute of America.

VVS = extremely difficult to perceive tiny inclusions, near perfection

FG = Ranging from D to Z, Colorless (F) and Nearly Colorless (G)

Several approaches can help you make your choice, including lithotherapy (meaning of stones) or the tradition of birthstones. Each month corresponds to a stone in birthstones:

January: Garnet (fidelity, energy, truth)
February: Amethyst (clairvoyance, sincerity, fullness) March: Aquamarine (calm, serenity)
April: Diamond (strength, courage, resilience)
May: Emerald (protection, harmony, regeneration) June: Pearl (purity, authenticity, wisdom)
July: Ruby (divine love, passion, loyalty, courage) August: Peridot (inner peace, joy, spirituality) September: Sapphire (truth, fidelity)
October: Tourmaline (immortality)
November: Citrine (joie de vivre, abundance) December: Topaz (communication, fidelity, joy)

Ethical engagement ring: recycled diamonds as a symbol of commitment

Jewellery as a symbol of commitment also aligns with your values towards yourself and the world. At WHITEbIRD, we select independent designers who prioritize short supply chains and commit to responsible jewelry-making. To further this approach, you can choose a recycled diamond! To learn more about our ethical and committed jewellery, we invite you to read our dedicated article on ethics in designer jewellery.

In this selection, we highlight a style characteristic of several designers at WHITEbIRD – each with their unique signature: jewellery that bears the mark of the skilled hands that crafted them. Textured, raw, unique, and authentic gold seems to tell an organic story. An artisanal and creative engagement ring, both in its making and style, will undoubtedly appeal to arts and crafts lovers.
