This gorgeous engagement ring features a cushion cut blue-green sapphire in the center, accented by split prong and bezel set diamonds on the platinum shank below. It was created for a client from Redmond, WA, who came into our Bellevue, WA showroom in person to get the custom design process started. He had a good idea of the type of stone he wanted in the center, and we worked through the options for complementary features until he was sure we had just the right mix. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
The centerpiece of this ring is a 1.65 carat cushion cut sapphire with a lovely blue-green color. The client was very specific about the shade his fiancee-to-be wanted, and so we shared some photos of the actual stone we sourced for the ring so he could approve it before we set it in the piece. Sapphire and Diamond Engagement Rings
Sapphires are a popular alternative to diamonds as the main gemstone in engagement rings, and they’re available in a wide variety of colors. Using a sapphire allows you to introduce a color with personal significance, and it helps add some striking contrast to your design as well.
Small round diamonds are split prong set down each shank shoulder, with 10 on each side. These extend nearly to the mid-point on the band, and they bring a glamorous flair to the piece as well as a nod to the traditional use of diamonds in engagement rings. Their perfectly round shape provides a subtle counterpoint to the softly-squared cushion cut of the sapphire and the split prong setting lends a bit of classical flair to the design.

On the ring fronts directly below the center setting, a round diamond is bezel set, and this adds a lovely surprise sparkle to the piece. All together, the 22 accent diamonds in the piece total 0.13 carats, and they help highlight the lovely color of the larger sapphire at the top without overshadowing it.
