(item # 102458)
This elegant engagement ring features a tension-set round brilliant cut diamond atop a split shank, with hand-made filigree and custom engraving. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who initially contacted us online to begin the custom design process. He had found our design #1312, but he wanted to make a few adjustments to personalize it for his fiancee-to-be.
We worked with him extensively online, as well as in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom, to finalize the details of his ring and make sure everything was exactly the way he wanted it. After working through a few sets of design revisions, our client gave his approval to move the piece into production, and he was very happy with the ring we created.
The main setting in this ring holds a 0.90 carat round brilliant cut diamond, whose shape is complemented nicely by the wrapped shape of the tension setting. This setting arises from two ends of the split shank as they move outward from the main part of the band to partly encircle the center stone. Diamond Engagement Rings
The arrangement of these ends leaves the setting open on two sides, which allows more of the diamond to be seen, and it also works well with the gently curving motion of the band itself to create a unified feel for the piece.
Accent Stones and Filigree
The split in the shank shoulders creates one smaller strand and one larger one. While the larger of the two goes on to create the main setting, the smaller continues on to meet the main stone lower down. The angle it comes in at gives the impression that it links up with the smaller strand from the other side of the band, and this generates a beautiful sense of continuity.
The space between the two sections of the split shank is filled with hand-made filigree that our client selected from another inspiration piece he found. A bezel set blue sapphire is embedded in the middle of this filigree on each side, and these stones had special meaning for our client as well.
Celtic knot designs are hand-engraved on the fronts of the ring all the way down to the three-quarter point, and they run along the top of the ring from this same spot until the point where the shank splits. Our client picked out the pattern used in this engraving, which also had personal significance as his girlfriend is of Irish descent and had spent time in the Emerald Isle, Ireland.
