This stunning engagement ring features a cushion cut blue sapphire in a double split talon prong setting, with additional diamond and milgrain accents on the platinum shank. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who came into our Bellevue, WA showroom to get the custom design process underway.
She was looking for something that combined vintage and contemporary elements, and so we came up with a couple of sketches for her to consider. After seeing our initial CAD offerings, she asked to see a few more to make it easier to visualize the finished product. Only once she was sure the design was exactly what she wanted did we turn her piece over to our expert artisans to begin production.
At the center of this ring is a 2.30 carat blue sapphire that’s cushion cut and prong set. The four double split talon prongs holding it in place help accentuate its lovely shape, and the brilliant white of the platinum also contrasts nicely with the rich blue of the sapphire. Sapphire Engagement Rings
Sapphires come in many different colors, and they’re nearly as hard as diamonds, making them a good option if you’re looking for an alternative center stone in your engagement ring. Using a colored sapphire in this position is a great way to work in something of personal significance to you and your partner such as eye color.
Right next to the main sapphire on each shank shoulder, a baguette diamond is bezel set lengthwise across the band. Directly below this, a bullet shape diamond lies inline with the band, with its flat end against the baguette stone, and its pointed end extending down toward the middle of the shank. Vintage Engagement Rings
After seeing our initial CAD models, the client asked if there was anything that could be done to push things in a more vintage direction, and so we suggested adding milgrain beading, as this feature is found in most vintage rings. We used it to frame the accent diamonds on each side, as well as the spaces on both ring fronts, and this minor adjustment got the client exactly the look she was after.
