This dazzling engagement ring features a marquise diamond prong set in white gold, with a diamond halo surrounding it, and additional diamond accents on the split shank. It was created for a couple from Seattle, WA, who came into our Bellevue, WA showroom to begin the custom design process. We coordinated with them both online and in person to make sure every detail was perfect, and they came in to view a wax model of the piece before giving approval to turn things over to our expert artisans and begin production. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
Marquise Center and Halo
A 0.97 carat marquise shaped diamond sits at the center of this ring. It’s held in place by six prongs made of 18k white gold, and it’s surrounded by a halo of round bright cut set diamonds that follows its contours precisely.
The halo style is a classic choice for an engagement ring, and there are many ways to integrate it into your design. Using a different setting style or cut of diamond for the halo can change the look and feel of the piece dramatically and help you make it more your own. You could also add some milgrian beading to frame it for a bit of vintage flair. Vintage Engagement Rings
The shank splits at about the one quarter point, and the two strands move outward from there until they are a little bit below the center setting. At that point, they take a nearly ninety-degree upward turn to intersect with the bottom of the halo, helping to raise it up slightly above the rest of the band.
Bright cut set diamond accents begin just below the split, and they continue up both strands after the separation. A single accent diamond is also set in each of the small sections raising up the halo, and these add some wonderful, unexpected sparkle when the ring is viewed from the side.
The client was concerned that these last accent diamonds would cause the center setting to be raised up too much. But after coming in to view a wax model of what the piece would look like with them, she decided to keep them in after all.
