This stunning engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond in the center, with shared prong set diamond accents on the unique white gold shank. It was created for a client, who initially visited our Bellevue, WA showroom to begin the custom design process. She had some existing diamonds that she wanted to use in the piece, and we integrated them while sourcing matching stones to fill out the design as well. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
In the center of this ring, a 1.01 carat round brilliant cut diamond is prong set in white gold directly between the two parallel rails of the shank. It was one of the diamonds that the client provided for us to use in this piece, and it’s set as low as structurally possible at the client’s request.
Band Design and Diamond Accents
This unique band design consists of two narrow rails lined with shared prong set diamonds that run parallel to each other all the way around. They’re joined by a flat circle of metal at the bottom of the piece, and they’re also linked by a series of Xs that run up each side. Unique Engagement Rings
The Xs are shared prong set with round diamonds just like the rails, although the diamonds here are slightly smaller than those on the rails. The client provided 14 of the 78 smaller diamonds and 46 of the 78 larger diamonds, and we sourced matching stones to complete both elements of the design.
She chose the shared prong setting because she wanted to maximize the sparkle of the accent stones, and this type leaves the sides as open as possible to allow for a clear view and plenty light to reach the diamonds while also producing just the kind of delicate look she was after.
Customizing Your Piece
One quick way to adjust the character of this piece while keeping many of the elements intact would be to use a different type of setting for the diamonds. Options include split prong, bright cut set, as well as channel set, and each of these would push the ring in a dramatically different stylistic direction. You may also want to consider using a variant of the X shape found in this piece, and you could substitute colored sapphires for the larger round diamond at the top.
