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, Tiffany 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 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 jewellery retailer has made a diamond engagement ring available for men, though the brand has long offered wedding bands for men. Tiffany explains in a press release “Following in the footsteps of its iconic sister, The Charles Tiffany Setting honors the jeweller’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.
Both famous and everyday men alike have increasingly become more open about embracing diamond jewellery, with many brands like Boucheron dedicating entire collections to gender neutral diamond jewellery 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 jewellery. The Charles Tiffany Setting collection will be available at Tiffany & Co. flagship stores beginning May 2021.
