Spring Into Your Engagement This Leap year

With Spring just days away, many a romantic’s hopes will be turning towards making the love of their life a more permanent fixture - and what better way to get the ball rolling than to propose?

Given that 2020 is a Leap Year, tradition dictates that women propose marriage to their partners. But buying a ring for your significant other is not really required as, assuming they agree, you can choose the right ring, or rings, together. There are some wonderful choices and here at Ogden we are sure to have the right engagement ring for you.

Perhaps something stylishly understated like our Rosina platinum and diamond ring below is the order of the day, its classy elegance is sure to draw the eye.

Or maybe something a little more forthright yet traditional is just the ticket. If so, then our vintage diamond and gold ring below would fit the bill nicely. This ring has been beautifully crafted from 18 carat yellow gold and features three old-cut diamonds, the largest of the diamonds claw set to the centre, weighing 1.10 carat. 

This ring exudes elegance and the captivating, intricate design tells a true historical story.
