In 1886, Charles Lewis Tiffany introduced the Tiffany Setting to glorify the solitaire diamond, a symbol of everlasting love.
The groundbreaking design had six prongs lifting a round diamond above a slender gold band. It put the beautiful diamonds Tiffany had become famous for on a pedestal and let them shine.
Light could literally pass between the ring prongs and through the diamond, heightening its brilliance.
This elegant innovation was a departure from other engagement rings that held a stone close to the band.
Tiffany became the first jeweler to create a signature engagement ring. An instant success, the Tiffany Setting has remained the iconic celebration of love for 130 years.
The Tiffany engagement ring is available at Rustan’s Makati. Call 8178108
