Just as last year the new black was white, this year, in the ever-evolving world of diamond engagement rings, cluster rings are the new 'it' style in bridal bling. For inspiration, check out these two rings by jewellery pioneers Boodles (www.boodles.co.uk) and Harry Winston (www.harrywinston.com - pictured), which perfectly epitomise the trend. For brides on a budget, lower-priced diamond cluster rings are available on The Jewellery Channel's online site (www.thejewellerychannel.tv), where prices start from £700.
