In the world of opulent engagements, Tiffany & Co’s diamonds are undoubtedly among the most coveted. And while the leading luxury jeweler offers an extensive collection of wedding rings for both men and women, Tiffany’s engagement ring selection has never catered to men — until now.
New York-based jeweler Tiffany & Co has been the preeminent destination for diamond engagement rings for nearly two centuries, but the luxury retailer’s latest collection – a line of sleek diamond engagement rings for men – just may be its most groundbreaking concept to date.
Launching this spring, the renowend jeweler unveiled its foray into men engagement rings with The Charles Tiffany Setting, a collection named after founder Charles Lewis Tiffany. The debut collection features rings with a signet silhouette design, settings in platinum and titanium and a bold solitaire diamond at the head.
Founded in 1837 and recently acquired by LVMH, Tiffany & Co is known and loved for the solitaire diamond engagement that debuted in 1886 and the unmistakable Tiffany Blue Box®, a symbol of love and commitment for generations. The Charles Tiffany Setting collection marks the first time the 184-year-old iconic jewelry retailer has made a diamond engagement ring available for men, though the brand has long offered wedding bands for men.
Following in the footsteps of its iconic sister, The Charles Tiffany Setting honors the jeweler’s long-standing legacy in love and inclusivity, paving the way for new traditions to celebrate our unique love stories and honor our most cherished commitments to one another.
The diamond engagement rings will be available in black and gray titanium and platinum with emerald cut, square emerald cut, and round diamonds that can go up to five carats in size. The band, inspired by the band on the iconic Tiffany® Setting, features contemporary, architectural beveled edges. Departing from more traditional wedding bands and instead opting for a contemporary signet silhouette, powerful contouring accentuates the modern profile across each iteration — and of course, the striking center diamond harkens back to the brand’s legacy in fine jewelry creations.
The round brilliant arrivals boast a sleek, knife-edge – a sartorial reference to the label’s signature Tiffany Setting ring – while emerald-cut diamonds rest atop a streamlined construction with architecturally oblique sides.
The first official release from The Charles Tiffany Setting offers two different cuts, round brilliant and emerald, in up to five carats.
As part of Tiffany’s diamond traceability commitment, each diamond in the men’s engagement collection will arrive with full craftsmanship certification, which includes details regarding the diamond’s exact origin as well as the cut, polish, grade, and quality.
Both famous and everyday men alike have increasingly become more open about embracing diamond jewelry, with many brands like Boucheron dedicating entire collections to gender neutral diamond jewelry designs. And with an increase in demand for engagement rings for men, Tiffany’s new collection is just one way the brand aims to support inclusivity and expressions of love with fine jewelry.
What is your favorite? The Charles Tiffany Setting collection will be available to purchase in May 2021 at Tiffany & Co boutiques worldwide. For more information, come into the beautiful world of Tiffany & Co.
