This stunning engagement ring features a large pear shaped diamond in a heart prong setting atop a split platinum band. It was created for a couple from Renton, WA, who came into our Bellevue, WA showroom in person to begin the custom design process. They shared their inspiration for this unique design with us, and we developed some concept sketches to get their feedback on before proceeding to the CAD part of the process. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
At the top of this ring, a 2.01 carat pear shaped diamond is held securely in place by three platinum prongs. Each of these prongs is in the shape of a heart, and one prong meets the diamond right at its tip, while the other two cradle the rounded side of the stone. Diamond Engagement Rings
The use of the heart shapes for the prongs was something the clients specifically requested, and it adds personal significance as well as some romantic overtones to the design. The asymmetry of the pear shaped diamond also works well with the unconventional band arrangement it’s perched on to help the piece look more like the crown design the piece was based on.
Band Design and Diamond Accents
The band is one solid piece across the bottom, and it begins to widen almost immediately going up the sides. Unlike most similar band designs, however, this one maintains a trajectory straight up on one side, while the other side begins to curve out and away. One of a Kind Engagement Rings
This movement continues until the band splits into two about half-way up each side, and even beyond, as one of the new strands pulls sharply away from the other. The straight strand continues all the way across the top uninterrupted, meeting briefly with the tip of the main setting before beginning its descent down the other side.
The curved strand, on the other hand, eventually intersects with the main setting at the widest point of the center diamond, helping to balance out the design nicely. Both strands are lined with bright cut set diamonds starting at the spot of the split and continuing all the way up to the center.
