This stunning engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond in the center of a double halo of split prong set diamonds, with additional split prong set diamond accents on the platinum shank. It was created for a client from Kirkland, WA, who brought us an existing ring that she wanted to remove the diamonds from so that she could use one of them as the center of this new piece.
We successfully removed the diamonds, and after she selected the one she liked best, we built this design to the gem’s specifications. We also made her a set of matching wedding bands, and these are meant to be worn on either side of the engagement ring to frame it nicely, creating a symmetrical and classic look.

Center Setting and Halo
The centerpiece of this ring is a 1.24 carat round brilliant cut diamond. It was one of three stones we removed from the client’s existing ring, and she selected it to fill the central role here. It’s complemented nicely by the use of small round diamonds in two concentric halos surrounding it, and these halos are slightly squared to bring a hint of art deco flair to the ring. Halo Engagement Rings
All of the diamonds in the halos are split prong set, which was one change the client made from her original inspiration piece. In that ring, the accent diamonds were French cut set, but this involves using more metal around the stones than the client wanted. We showed her examples of what each setting style would look like, and she decided to go with the split prong seen here.
Split prong set diamonds run down the shoulders of the shank as well, although these are considerably larger than the diamonds in the halo. They nearly match the width of the band, and they provide a nice point of connection between the main setting and the rest of the piece below. These accent diamonds also line up perfectly with the split prong set diamonds on the matching wedding bands for a truly dazzling display when the three rings are worn as a set.
