(item # 102271)
This breathtaking engagement ring features a radiant cut blue sapphire, flanked by diamonds and set in a platinum Euro shank with custom filigree accents. It was created as a custom order for a couple from Albuquerque, NM, who found our original design #100793 and wanted to modify it to fit their personal style. Our team in Bellevue, WA worked closely with them online to ensure we got all of the details of the ring exactly the way they wanted them.
Sapphire and Diamonds
The three-stone setting this ring centers around is anchored by a stunning blue sapphire with a radiant cut that comes in at nearly 2 carats. Sapphires have long been used in engagement rings, as they signify faithfulness, reliability, and purity. This stone also brings a beautiful color to the piece, and it contrasts nicely with the sparkling white of the diamonds and platinum that make up the rest of the ring.
On either side of the center sapphire are trilliant diamonds, held securely in a specialty prong setting. The setting for these diamonds was of particular interest to our clients, who were unhappy with the way a conventional rounded prong at the tip of the stone interrupted the flow of the piece. We worked with them to come up with an alternative that was both structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing, as seen here.
The settings for the diamonds aren't the only specialty settings in this piece. In fact, the first thing that’s likely to catch your eye when you look at this ring is the ornate setting holding the center sapphire in place.
It’s made up of curving bands of platinum that rise up from the filigree beneath the main setting. They work to continue the flowing nature of the design, while also providing plenty of structural support for the large precious stone they’re holding.
Because the main setting is large, we used a Euro shank, which features a slightly squared bottom, to help balance out the piece and keep it from spinning on the finger when worn. The choice of platinum for the shank was also deliberate, as this is the best option for holding such large stones securely. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
