The “Petrolhead Proposals” service is a partnership between a British company Scrap comparison and long-time jeweler Edouard Fleming. Each client’s design is unique to the next and is inspired by the design of a chosen brand or model of car.
Examples include popular models like the Ford Fiesta, Mini Cooper, and Lamborghini Huracan, each with its own color and design. And, like the real thing, it also has optional extras which consist of personalized license plate engravings on the inner band of the ring.
