Country Life Top 10 Engagement RingsEmma Clarkson Webb

My new favourite discovery is gorgeous jeweller Emma Clarkson Webb who can work miracles with any budget. She can use old stones – if you have some – or source new, and either way create something wonderfully sentimental. It’s hard to choose a favourite, but I’m enjoying the smooth setting of this one-off piece using vibrant yellow gold to set off the impressive diamond.
