A contemporary engagement ringThe Flick is a contemporary engagement ring that has become the signature style of jewellery designer Andrew Leggett. It was originally inspired by the classic “single-stone crossover” ring, which is a traditional solitaire engagement ring style that has been around forever, but unfortunately it does not usually sit well with a straight wedding ring. – The Flick style overcomes this problem, simply and elegantly by having one flat side to sit perfectly alongside the wedding ring., which means the stone is pushed down the finger, and one shoulder ‘flicks’ down to meet it, (hence the name.) The result is a subtly different and sophisticated contemporary engagement ring, that is very comfortable to wear.
A truly exclusive engagement ringIf you buy an engagement ring from a big brand you will have a ring that is produced in bulk using moulds. However, when you commission a Flick ring you’ll have a ring that is unique to you. – That is true exclusivity. We have made lots of Flick engagement rings, but as each one is designed and handmade for the person who will wear it, now two rings are ever the same. We start with the stone and then design the ring around it.
First choose your stoneWe make versions of the flick ring with a wide variety of diamonds. Most people opt for a round brilliant-cut diamond, bur some choose a different shape of diamond, such as marquise, oval or pear cut.
Designing your Handmade Engagement Ring
The Flick concept is very simple, but every example of this stylish contemporary engagement ring is unique, as it is created for a particular person, taking into account their personal style, the kind of jewellery they usually wear, stature, size of hand, skin colouring and of course budget.
We offer clients the opportunity to get involved in the design of their own Flick ring, and because we make each ring from scratch by hand, we are able to offer an enormous degree of personalisation.
Nothing is pre-determined. We usually start by selecting the diamond or other gemstone. Choose the size and cut of the diamond that will look right on your hand. Often the stone size is dictated by the budget of the particular client, and we are able to select a stone to suit the pocket of each client.
