Whether rose gold, soft luminous yellow or minimalist white is your colour, at EC One dressing your fingers in gold is simplicity itself. We stock a range of contemporary and fine gold rings in unique but timeless designs from our internationally-acclaimed body of independent jewellers and world-class in-house workshop.
You may have heard of the ‘carat’ weight of gold; This is a system which grades gold’s purity on a sliding scale of up to 24 carats – so 18 Carat gold is 18 parts gold, 6 parts another metal. Pure gold is far too soft for use in jewellery, so the gold is mixed – or alloyed – with other metals like silver or zinc to harden it. Alloys can also be used to create coloured golds: the gorgeous blush of rose gold, for example, is created by adding copper, whilst mixing in silvery metals, like palladium, will produce white gold. Whatever the Carat, EC One’s white gold is completely nickel free.
Not just looking for ‘a’ ring, but ‘THE’ ring? With a colour and lustre unaffected by the passage of time, symbolizing warmth, happiness and love, gold is a classic choice for your engagement and wedding rings. With such a wide range of choice out there, finding your dream rings can be a daunting prospect! Luckily, our London workshop works in both 18 Carat and 9 Carat Golds, and can create any design you have in mind – even re-working a loved heirloom – to make a truly individual yet affordable piece.

With all this wedding fever going on, we’re pleased to announce the arrival of our new engagement rings at EC One. The rings were designed over the summer last year and Kate, Jude and Jos have been busy in the EC One workshop handmaking the rings which are now available at both EC One stores and online.
Each of the designs has been named after famous and adventurous women. We have the Ellen ring, named after round-the-world sailor Ellen McArthur, the Amelia ring, in homage to female pilot Amelia Earhart and carrying on from our classic design, we’ve also introduced the new Princess-cut Emma ring.
Those of you wandering past our stores will have spotted our fabulous Royal Wedding decor, to celebrate next week’s wedding of the year.

Our favourite part has to be our little shrine to Kate and Wills, with our framed snap of the happy couple. And make sure you don’t miss little Maeby the whippet at EC One Notting Hill, giving everyone a royal hello!
Last week, EC One was chosen as one of 20 licensed UK jewellers to work with the newly certified Fairmined gold. Today, our first 20g of the gold arrived, and we are pleased to say that EC One is officially the first UK jewellery retailer to have made a piece of jewellery from the Fairtrade Fairmined gold.
