Six beautiful rings, a central diamond with coloured shoulders.
For the second time in 2021, Hancocks London, the British Jeweller based in London in the Burlington Arcade, unveiled a diamond ring collection, Slinky Shoulders.
The Slinky Shoulders collection features a variety of shapes and sizes of old-cut diamonds, all set with coloured gemstone shoulders, adding a contemporary pop of colour to an otherwise classic design.
This collection evolved from discussions we had about different ways to complement and enhance our beautiful old cut diamond solitaire rings. We wanted something different to the diamond embellishments or hand-engraved details we have used before and after playing with different designs which enhanced the central diamond, we came up with these slinky, colourful shoulders.Guy Burton, Director at Hancocks London
The collection comprises a series of unique old-cut diamond rings with elegant tapering shoulders set with specially calibre cut aquamarines, sapphires or emeralds.
The calibre cut allows the gems to fit into the shoulders of the band of each ring — great attention to detail which these new rings perfectly mirror.
Our beautiful antique diamonds don’t necessarily need any embellishment but sometimes it’s good to add a splash of colour, subtle or otherwise. We hope these rings will appeal to people who like their classics with a bit of contemporary twist.Guy Burton, Hancocks London
The Slinky Shoulders collection launches in Hancocks London’s Burlington Arcade shop and will also be available online.
The Slinky Shoulders collection features sapphire, aquamarine and emerald, and more colours will be added later this year and into 2022.
