This elegant engagement ring features a double prong set round blue sapphire in a white gold shank with diamond accents and custom metalwork. It was created for a client from Columbus, GA who worked with us extensively online to find the perfect stone to sit atop this ring. Even though he couldn’t come into our Bellevue, WA showroom personally, we completed the project to his total satisfaction thanks to our expert designers, skilled artisans, and the wonderful 3D imaging technology we use for every custom design project.
After initially investigating the various options for diamonds that he could use in the center of this ring, the client decided to go with this stunning blue sapphire. It’s a 1.03 carat round stone with a sparkling blue color that’s held in place by an 18k double prong setting. The contrast between the blue of the stone and the polished white gold really gives a new layer to the design, and the size and shape of the sapphire provide a good balance for the ring as a whole.
Sapphires are a good choice for everyday pieces like engagement rings thanks to their hardness, which measures 9 out of 10 on the Mohs scale. This means they’re less likely to chip than stones with a lower rating like emeralds, which was another option the client was interested in. Sapphires also come in many different colors, so you can take advantage of their resistance to damage while also including a significant or favorite color in your ring.
Sapphire Engagement Rings
Tucked below the center setting on each of the ring fronts is a bezel set round diamond. These stand out just enough from the white gold setting to add a bit of sparkle, and they also provide a nod to the use of diamonds as the traditional engagement ring stone. Their bezel settings are worked smoothly into the custom filigree also, and their placement over the lower tip of the diamond makes them a nice counterbalance point for the main setting.
Custom Filigree and Hand Engraving
While a lot of thought and work went into selecting the right stone to sit atop this ring, the beautiful metalwork on the band is impossible to overlook as well. One element of this is the hand-made scroll filigree that flanks the accent diamonds and fills the space formed when the shoulders of the cathedral shank rise up to meet the sapphire.
Covering most of the rest of the shank is a beautiful hand engraving lined with milgrain that our artisans complete by hand as the last step in the production process. In order to assure perfect precision and the highest possible level of detail, they perform this type of work under a bench microscope onsite in our Bellevue, WA location, and that also means that you can have just about any design or pattern you’d like included in your piece for a truly unique look.
