The new Love Diamond Antwerp Diamond Heritage Collection features mostly solitaire rings. Launched in collaboration with Belgium's Antwerp Diamond Museum, the collection combines the beauty of historical designs with modern interpretation and craftsmanship.

Timeless classics


1895 Solitaire (top) - befitting its name, this has been a Cartier classic since 1895. This timeless solitaire is a perfect example of delicate balance. A wire setting with four elegant and harmonious claws enhances the radiance of the stone.

Tiffany & Co

Tiffany's famous six-prong (above) setting has emerged to be the most popular engagement ring style in the world. This innovative design sets the diamond away from the band, with six platinum prongs, allowing a more complete return of light through the diamond and maximising its natural brilliance.

Iconic designs
