(item # 102345)(price does not include center stone)
This elegant engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond in a four prong setting, accented by bright cut set diamonds running down both shoulders of the platinum shank. It was created for a client from Portland, OR, who initially visited our Bellevue, WA showroom in person, and then completed the custom design process online.
Center Diamond and Setting Design
At the center of this ring is a 1.06 carat round brilliant cut diamond that’s displayed beautifully in a four-prong platinum setting. The widest part of the diamond sits above the band, while the point continues down below the cathedral, and that helps give the piece a smooth, contemporary look.
The prongs that hold the diamond cross over each other below the stone, and then continue up across the top part of the band as well. This subtle movement adds a lovely intricacy to the design, and it helps accentuate the presentation of the beautiful diamond at the top.
The diamonds running down the shoulders of the shanks are all round and bright cut set. They add a lovely sparkle to the piece, and they also provide a nice balance, as they mirror the shape of the center stone. This detail is especially evident when the ring is viewed straight on from the top down. The channel the diamonds sit in has an inverted V at the bottom as well, which is another subtle design touch that really adds to the overall impact of the piece.
There are many ways you can take this ring and customize it to make it better reflect your personal style. For instance, you could add some milgrain and hand engraving to the shank, which would take the piece in a much more vintage direction. You could also switch to a warmer rose gold to intensify that effect.
Alternately, you could use a colored sapphire or other gem in place of the center diamond or the accent stones. This is a great way to introduce color into the piece, and it also lets you include an item of personal significance like a birthstone or favorite color.
