This stunning engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond tension set atop a platinum shank, with flush set blue sapphire accents. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who worked with our team both in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom and online to make sure every detail was perfectly placed.

The centerpiece of this ring is a 1.22 carat round brilliant cut diamond with an ideal make and a perfect hearts and arrows faceting. It’s tension set between the two sides of the tapered platinum shank, which is exactly as wide as the diamond at its widest point. The sides of the tension setting are straight, however, providing a nice contrast to the perfectly round diamond.
The client was undecided initially as to whether he wanted a round or princess cut diamond, so we generated CAD models of each option. After viewing these, he decided to go with the round stone, but he wanted to see what it would look like if the contours of the setting followed the curve of the diamond. We showed him a model for this as well, and after considering all the options, he found he preferred the straight lines for the setting rather than the curved.
Two princess cut blue sapphires are flush set in the shank of this ring, with one on either side of the center setting. They’re set on end to emphasize their angular shape, and this contrasts nicely with the perfectly round diamond at the top. Sapphire Diamond Engagement Rings
The client also requested models with several different shapes for these accent stones, which we promptly provided. He was concerned that round stones might look better than princess cut to complement the round diamond, but after seeing them side by side, he felt the contrasting shapes helped improve upon the design.
The band itself is slightly domed, and it tapers as it moves down the sides. The high polish finish gives it a sleek, elegant look, and it strikes just the right balance between the smooth curves of the diamond and the straight lines of the sapphires. One of a Kind Engagement Rings
