This exquisite engagement ring features an emerald cut alexandrite accented with emerald and trillion cut diamonds, all set in platinum. It was created for a client from Bellevue, WA, who brought us some family gemstones and asked us to design a piece that would display them beautifully. Including her family stones like this made the piece even more special for the way it represents both her past and her future.
Alexandrite is a rare gem that was only discovered in the mid-1800s in Russia. It was named for the Czar a the time, Alexander II, and its main draw is that is actually changes color significantly depending on the type of lighting its viewed under. For instance, some alexandrite will show a blue-green color in natural sunlight, and then switch to redder hues indoors.
The stone in this ring displays colors ranging from deep blue to purple and even pink. It makes a stunning centerpiece, and it’s securely held in a four-prong setting that accentuates its shape nicely. It’s also a unique alternative to a diamond in an engagement ring, and it’s certainly an eye-catching one as well.
Diamond Side Stones
Of course, this ring design doesn’t forego diamonds altogether, as they occupy significant positions on either side of the main stone. First come two emerald cut diamonds that sit right up against the alexandrite and help accentuate its sparkle by reflecting light back up onto it. Beyond these as you move away from the center setting are two trillion cut diamonds, and their triangular shape helps unite the tapered shank with the squared setting above.
