(item # 102892)
This stunning engagement ring features an oval blue sapphire prong set in the center of a split prong set diamond halo, with split prong set amethyst accents on the white gold band. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who already had the sapphire he wanted to use and asked us to design the perfect ring to hold it.
After meeting with him in our Bellevue, WA showroom, we developed a CAD model built to his specifications. He was able to view proofs of this model online, and once we’d made the one modification he requested, he gave approval to move forward with the production process. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
Blue Sapphire Center
The centerpiece of this ring is a 1.53 carat oval blue sapphire that the client supplied. It has a dazzling fire, which is only intensified by the contrast with the 14k white gold it’s set in. The oval shape also pushes the piece in a more classical direction, and the stone is oriented to sit lengthwise across the band, helping to give the piece a good overall balance.
Diamond Halo and Amethyst Accents
Surrounding the center sapphire is a halo of round split prong set diamonds, which bring wonderful sparkle to the piece, while also adding some antique flair. Halos are a popular choice in engagement rings for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that the additional light they reflect up onto the larger gem helps it to shine more brightly. Halo Engagement Rings
The use of the split prong setting in this halo is a nod to the classical themes already present, and it’s the same type of setting that’s used on the four amethyst accents tucked in at the top of the shank shoulder.
These feature a rich purple color, and they add a wonderful layer of contrast while also serving as a personally-significant element for the couple. Our initial design had amethysts in the halo as well as on the band, but the client decided he preferred diamonds in the halo. He still wanted to keep the amethysts in some capacity, however, eventually settling on this configuration. Custom Engagement Rings
