This exquisite engagement ring features a round Star 129 diamond prong set in the center of a swirling halo of bright cut set diamonds, with additional diamond and milgrain accents on the split, criss-cross shank. It was created for a client from Houston, TX, who shared several of his inspiration pieces with us to get the custom design process going. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
After discussing various diamond and setting options, we developed an initial design for him and shared it through the online workroom we set up to manage the project. He requested some changes, and we incorporated them into the model so he could see what it would look like before moving forward. We repeated this cycle until he was sure the design was perfect, and only then did we turn things over to our expert artisans to begin production.
At the center of this ring is a 0.65 carat Star 129 diamond, and the openness of the four prong white gold setting holding it in place allows it to take in as much light as possible. This amplifies the brilliance of the gem, taking full advantage of the 129 precisely-placed facets to reflect light back out in all directions. The Star 129 cut is considered to be the most brilliant, and the client specifically wanted this type of stone to ensure the ring would be spectacular.
Wrapped Shank and Diamond Accents
The shank begins as one piece, but it quickly splits as it moves up from the bottom, becoming two strands that curve out and then back over each other close to the main setting. This criss-cross pattern leads directly into the intertwining wrapped halo surrounding the main diamond, giving the piece a fluid grace as well as some classical flair.
A row of round bright cut set diamonds lined with milgrain begins below the half-way point on one of the strands, and these run continuously up into the halo as well. All of the accent diamonds are lined with milgrain beading, and the presence of the diamonds on the top strand helps highlight the movement of the strands as they twist around each other.

Custom Engagement Rings
This is an extremely popular design, and it has been customized by a few other customers over the years. Some have incorporated different metals to create a two-tone effect, while others have added diamonds or hand-engraving. There are plenty of other options to consider, though, and our experts will show you as many examples and variations as you’d like until you’re sure we’ve captured the look you’re after.

I completely enjoyed my experience with Joseph's. From my initial inquiries to receiving the custom designed ring, Joseph's communication was fantastic. I never felt any pressure, unlike several other places I looked. With Joseph's, I always felt like I was in charge of a team that was working very hard to deliver exactly what I wanted.
