This stunning engagement ring features a specialty cut blue sapphire solitaire surrounded by a halo of diamonds, all set in platinum. It was originally created for a client from Seattle, WA, who wanted us to build the perfect ring to display the sapphire she already had. We coordinated with her both online and in person at our Bellevue, WA showroom to ensure the designs we came up with were exactly what she had envisioned.
Specialty Cut Sapphire
The stone at the center of this ring is a gorgeous blue sapphire. It’s displayed beautifully in a four prong setting which rises up from the criss-crossing strands of the band below. Its lovely blue color contrasts nicely with the polished platinum that makes up the rest of the ring, as well as the sparkling diamonds in the surrounding halo.
While diamonds are often thought of first when it comes to engagement rings, sapphires are also a popular choice. They offer a nice way to include some color in the piece, and they contribute overtones of purity, loyalty, faithfulness, and sincerity.
The halo of diamonds surrounding the sapphire in this ring is made up of 26 french-cut set stones, and that choice of setting really helps them stand out. They also work to enhance the beauty and sparkle of the center stone by reflecting additional light back up onto it.
Halos are a popular choice for many types of rings, and its use in this case allows diamonds to be incorporated into the design as well. Just like every other element of the ring, though, the choice of stone type, size, and cut, and the kind of setting used for the halo can greatly impact the overall appearance of the ring.
Personalizing Your Piece
Because so many small design details combine to determine what kind of look and feel each particular ring has, there are actually a lot of opportunities for customization of this and many other designs. For example, use of a bezel as opposed to a prong setting for the center stone would give the ring a more modern look, while adding some custom engraving to the shank could take the design in a more vintage direction.
No matter what your personal style or what type of details you want to include in your custom piece, our experts are here to help. We’ll take all of your feedback and work it into highly-detailed 3D proofs, so you can examine every aspect of the design before giving approval and sending it into production.

I've now had 4 custom pieces made at Joseph Jewelry. They are all fantastic. The latest a redo of my husband's wedding ring for our 15th wedding anniversary - I just picked up the finished ring yesterday. We had the ring redone once before (upgrading the center stone) at another jeweler. We weren't happy with the outcome, and I was nervous to try again. The new ring was perfect! Renae, our designer, was very patient, doing several drawings, answering all my questions. Danny gave great advice so I'd get just the look we had wanted in the first place. It couldn't have come out better! We've used another very well-regarded custom jeweler in Seattle previously - Joseph's work was superior, and a better value. We won't be going elsewhere in the future!
