This gorgeous engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond prong set in platinum, with bright cut set and split prong set accents on the band below. It was created for a client from Kirkland, WA, who provided the center stone and also shared several inspiration pieces with us so we could see exactly what type of design he was after. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
Following our initial meeting with him in our Bellevue, WA showroom, we posted some CAD images online for him to review. He requested a few minor adjustments, and once we’d made those, he came in to see a wax model of the piece before approving it to move into production.
At the center of this ring, a 1.99 carat round brilliant cut diamond that the client provided is cradled in four platinum prongs. These rise up individually from the band below, and this was a detail the client specifically requested. Our initial design had all prongs meeting below the diamond at a single point of origin, but he liked the open side view created by having them separated at the bottom.One of a Kind Engagement Rings
A narrow bar runs around the center diamond in the gallery, and it’s placed down low enough that it’s not visible from the top-down view. This holds small round bright cut set diamond accents that add a lovely surprise sparkle to the piece for an extra glamorous flair.
The straight, narrow band is also split prong set with round accent diamonds down to the three-quarter point. Their lovely sparkle helps to enhance the brilliance of the large diamond at the top, and they echo its shape as well, bringing a nice balance to the piece as a whole.
Matching Wedding Sets
One concern we discussed with the client during the custom design process for this ring was the type of wedding band that would ultimately go with it. Initially, he had said he wanted a straight band that could sit flush with the engagement ring, which would not be possible with the modifications he requested to the prong alignment in the center setting. After giving it some thought, he decided that a contoured band would be perfect, and so we were able to accommodate the gallery design he preferred.
