This stunning engagement ring features a round brilliant cut diamond tension set in a palladium split shank with custom hand-engraved accents. It was created for a client from Evanston, IL, and we can work with you to customize it until it’s the perfect fit for you. Whether you’re local and can come into our Bellevue, WA showroom in person, or you would like to complete a custom design project online, the knowledge and skills of our team ensure that the piece you come away with will be exactly what you were looking for.
A diamond solitaire is a traditional choice when it comes to engagement rings, but that doesn’t mean that your ring has to look like everyone else’s. This piece is a perfect example of that, with a single 0.50 carat round brilliant cut diamond beautifully wrapped in a tension setting that arises naturally from the curves of the split criss-cross shank.
Diamonds carry with them overtones of romantic love and unparalleled beauty, which makes them a wonderful choice as the centerpiece of such a special ring. However, if you wanted to customize this piece a bit by adding some color, you might consider a pink or champagne diamond, which would keep the symbolism intact while introducing a wonderful contrast and energy into the design.
The two strands that make up the shank of this piece begin together at the bottom. As they move up the sides, they separate, curving outward slightly before coming back together to cross over each other as they transition into the center setting.
At this point, the strand passing underneath joins with its partner from the other side to form a loop directly below the center stone, while the top pieces thicken and wrap around opposite sides of the diamonds to create the tension setting holding it in place.
The top strand of the shank on each side is engraved with a delicate scalloped pattern that works well with the flowing nature of the band to create a lovely overall effect. It begins right where the two strands split on either side, and it continues all the way up into the main setting, where it also serves to enhance the sparkle of the diamond.
Hand-engraving like this is added as the final step in the production process by our skilled artisans, and that means you can expect an exquisite level of detail and precision in all of our fine custom pieces. It also allows you to customize the pattern of the engraving to a great degree, and we’re happy to show you examples of the various styles available if you’re not sure exactly how to get the look you’re going for.
