This dazzling engagement ring features an oval alexandrite prong set in the center of a double halo, with various shades of sapphires split prong set closest to the stone, and split prong set white diamonds on the outside. It was created for a client from Washington, DC, who already had the center stone as well as a good idea of the kind of design he wanted for the rest of the ring. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
To ensure we had every detail of his piece perfect, we shared multiple concept sketches and CAD models with the client through the online workroom we set up to manage his project. He requested adjustments and clarifications as the process progressed, and we discussed options over the phone several times as well to eliminate the possibility of confusion or miscommunication. 100% Satisfaction
In the center of this ring, a 2.31 carat oval alexandrite is prong set in 14k palladium white gold. It’s oriented east/west so that it lies inline with the band, which was what the client requested. This positioning facilitates the swirling effect of the outer halo, and it provides a nice balance for the ring as well.
Surrounding the large alexandrite is a split prong set halo of round sapphires that exhibit various shades of blue and purple. This gradual change in shade from one section of the halo to the next was an important element for the client, and one that we spent a great deal of time on in order to get exactly right. The specific colors of the sapphire accents were chosen to reflect the various shades of purple and blue that can be seen in the alexandrite, helping to highlight the intricacy and beauty of the larger stone.

Band Design and Diamond Accents
The band features a Euroshank design, with softly rounded corners at the bottom helping to balance out the large center setting on top. It’s straight and narrow coming up the sides, with spilt prong set diamond accents beginning at the mid-points. These continue up all the way into the center setting, as the band curves off to one side near the top to wrap around the inner sapphire halo. The effect is a swirling center setting that gives the impression the center stone is doubly wrapped in brilliant gemstones, creating a truly stunning look full of glamorous flair.
