The proposal Colour me deliriously happy!

Sidebar: Nuptials are in the air!s 

So you’ve been dating for a while and you know that she’s the one for you. For most men this means a proposal of marriage to their sweetheart is the inevitable next step; but how to go about it?

There are many important factors that go into the perfect proposal. The location is important for one. Maybe you’ll choose an intimate dinner as the setting for popping the question, or maybe you’ll wait until the pair of you are on the summit of Kilimanjaro. Maybe you’ll get on one knee and maybe you won’t. Perhaps you’ll have written her a poem, or on the other hand you may just blurt it out after an evening of sweaty palms. Whatever your style, odds are good that one item you’ll definitely want to have on hand is the perfect engagement ring. This is where Island Companies’ expertise is invaluable.

Coloured diamonds
Island Companies has been a purveyor of fine gems for decades in the Cayman Islands, and diamonds are one of its specialties. Not only does this highly reputable company offer a wide assortment of loose diamonds, custom settings and designer diamond rings; it also keeps abreast of the latest trends, and one of the hottest trends in the market at the moment is coloured diamonds.

Naturally white diamonds will always be timeless and beautiful, but coloured diamonds are definitely becoming more prevalent in the market. One of the reasons for this surge in popularity is Kate Middleton’s engagement ring, which was of course the late Princess Diana’s. Although Princess Diana’s ring was a sapphire surrounded by diamonds, the large blue stone, coupled with the Duchess of Cambridge’s impeccable sense of fashion and taste, had an instant impact on the industry and the demand for coloured gems in engagement rings suddenly increased.

Island Exotics
Island Companies offers a distinctive range of coloured diamond rings and bands from the Island Exotics Coloured Diamonds collection. These exquisite pieces can be found at Island Jewellers in The Island Plaza and Flagship Building, and at The Mansion in Camana Bay.

There are a number of different designs, such as the blue and white diamond channel set band, the blue and white diamond ring and the blue and white diamond halo ring. All are beautifully set in 14kt gold.

Another jewel on the crown (so to speak) is the breathtaking 18k yellow and white diamond ring. This stunning setting is sure to make the heart of your fiancée-to-be beat a little faster.

If you’re not sure what to choose, why not ask the advice of one of Island Companies’ qualified, helpful and professional staff members? They have years of experience making dreams come true for their clients.

Don’t forget that Island Companies will go those extra (thousand) miles for you to make sure you love what you’ve bought. With access to designers and diamonds all over the world, this leader in luxury brands will leave no stone left unturned (literally!) until you have that perfect engagement ring in your pocket.
