4. TENSION SETTING ENGAGEMENT RING
When it comes to the anatomy of a diamond ring, the setting plays a major role in defining the style of the piece.

This extraordinary setting is featured in the Millennium Diamond Ring, a Shimansky original that has been designed with shear precision in mind. The round brilliant cut diamond is artfully suspended between two bands that represent the coming together of two lives. Delivering an unobstructed view of the stone, this design is created to showcase the unflawed beauty of a superb quality diamond beautifully. As the most popular and sought after diamond engagement ring design in South Africa, the iconic Shimansky design is truly something special.

This one-of-a-kind engagement ring is the perfect choice for the bride-to-be who is in search of something a little different and unconventional.
