Introducing McCaul Goldsmith's new Aegis collection

It started with the stone ... when we saw the stunning 0.98ct shield shaped diamond our design mind went into overdrive.

“We fell in love with this rose-cut diamond as soon as we saw its unusual and eye-catching, geometric shape. We were excited to create a ring which would enhance this spectacular cut.” David McCaul

Handcarved in wax, we tried and tested our design until we were perfectly happy with the height and proportions of the ring. The stunning diamond is held in a bold bezel setting which enhances its unique shape. The bright white of the diamond contrasts with the crisp, clean coolness of precious platinum.

Following on from handcrafting this initial ring, we developed our new collection, creating stunning, individually sculpted rings with unique, geometric shaped grey, champagne and white diamonds and coloured gemstones, set in generous 18 carat rose, yellow or white gold, or platinum.

Aegis, meaning protection, is represented as a shield in classical art and mythology and seemed like the perfect name for our new fine jewellery collection.

The feeling the Aegis collection rings provide is one of protection, perhaps it is the talisman effect of the shield shaped diamonds; when worn the wearer feels a sense of security and strength. These are truly special rings.
