This stunning engagement ring features a cushion shaped blue sapphire prong set in the center of a halo of French cut set diamonds, with additional diamond accents on the split white gold shank. It was created for a client from Bellevue, WA, and the contemporary flair it exudes helps make it a wonderful inspiration piece if you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional diamond engagement ring. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
The centerpiece of this ring is a large blue sapphire cut in a cushion shape, and it’s held in place by four rounded white gold prongs. These prongs are also the only part of the main setting that doesn’t have any accent diamonds, making them stand out clearly from the gemstones that sit on all sides.
The sapphire itself has a rich blue color that benefits greatly from the contrast with the many sparkling diamonds in the surrounding halo. These are all round and French cut set, and they’re arranged to mirror the slightly squared contours of the main stone perfectly. Sapphire Engagement Rings
Diamond Accents and Band Design
There are also French cut set diamonds running down both shank shoulders, and these tie in nicely with the stones in the halo to unite the two sections of the ring. These accent diamonds start at the mid-point on the band, which is the same spot where the shank itself splits into two strands.
The rows of accent diamonds follow their respective strands, and these each angle outward gradually eventually meeting the side of the center setting. Finally, accent diamonds are set on the fronts of the ring directly below the main setting, and they run up the bars that become the prongs holding the sapphire, stopping right at the level of the halo.
Sapphire Engagement Rings
Using a sapphire in the center of your engagement ring is a good choice when you’re interested in something other than the traditional diamond. These gems come in many different colors, and their relative hardness makes them able to stand up to the rigors of everyday wear. They are also associated with strength, wisdom and kindness, which are wonderful sentiments to work into your piece.
