Fairtrade and ethical jeweller Cred Jewellery has introduced a new collection of ‘illusion’ engagement rings, using smaller diamonds to create the look of a larger solitaire. 

The Grace collection, inspired by floral designs, uses diamonds set with pave and surrounded by milgrain detailing to help the light reflect around the setting.

Cred has created the collection to cater to a growing number of couples searching for ethical engagement rings across a wide spectrum of prices. Designs in the Grace collection start from RRP £615.


“The story behind our Fairtrade gold is one of the best in the world and deserves to play a greater part in engagement rings. By being creative with the detail and settings, the gold can be as light and beautiful as gemstones, and at the same time gives couples a larger ring for their budget,” says Cred designer Annabel Panes.

Highlights from the collection include the Jasmine ring, with diamonds set within decorative petal shaped bezel channels, and the Cara ring, with a halo cluster of diamonds on Cred’s signature twist setting.

Rings are crafted in 18ct Fairtrade white and yellow gold and set with clusters of diamonds from 1mm to 3.5mm.
