This elegant engagement ring features an emerald cut diamond prong set atop a tapered shank with diamond, emerald, and hand engraved accents. It was created for a client from Killeen, TX, who had some ideas about what he wanted for his fiancée-to-be and shared them with us via the online workroom.
We actually completed this project while the client was deployed in Afghanistan, sharing our designs and incorporating his feedback all through our online system. Thanks to the high-tech CAD imaging software we use, we could let him see what his ring would look like with different gemstone options, and he eventually settled on the combination seen here. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
The main stone in this ring is a one carat emerald cut diamond, and it’s perfectly cradled by four white gold prongs rising up from the shank below. The emerald cut gives the stone a strong, angular shape, which stands in stark contrast to the round accent stones and delicate tapered shank. Diamond Engagement Rings
Our client was initially considering using an emerald or sapphire as the center stone, and we created renders of the design for him using all three types of gems. In the end, he decided against the emerald at the top since it is softer than the other options he was considering. Both diamonds and sapphires are quite hard, making them better able to stand up to the rigors of everyday wear, and he liked the look of the diamond the best.
Since his fiancée had expressed an interest in having emeralds in her ring, as that is our client’s birthstone, we helped him find a way to incorporate these into the design even though he didn’t wind up using them as the main stone. Instead, we bezel set two small round emeralds on each of the ring fronts below the center setting, and this brings a touch of color to the design while also working in something of special significance to the couple.
Additionally, two round diamonds are prong set on each of the shank shoulders, and these help highlight the beautiful sparkle of the center stone, while also aiding in the transition from the main setting to the band.
Band Design and Engraving
The 14k white gold shank is thickest at the bottom, and it tapers gradually from about the half-way mark until it comes almost to a point when it reaches the accent diamonds. The fronts of the shank down to the three-quarter point feature beautiful hand-engraving lined with milgrain beading for an elegant and classy touch.
