This elegant engagement ring features a marquise shaped diamond prong set in the center of a contoured halo, with diamond, emerald, and hand-engraved accents on the split platinum shank. It was created for a client from Columbus, IN, who came to us with some specific ideas about the types of features he wanted to include in his piece.
After some initial discussions via email, we set up a dedicated online workroom, as we do for all of the custom projects we take on. Through here, we were able to share images and notes on the design, and after a couple of rounds of revisions, the client approved the piece to send into production. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
The diamond at the center of this ring is a 1.44 carat marquise cut, and the six platinum prongs holding it in place highlight its lovely shape. It sits in the center of a diamond halo that’s contoured to match the lines of the stone. The diamonds in the halo are all round and bright cut set, and the surface they’re on angles out slightly to mirror the upward tilt of the underside of the diamond.
Right in line with the band, a bezel set emerald sits in the middle of the arc of the halo on either side of the main diamond. The client requested these be added specifically, and he also wanted to approve the shade of green before we set them to make sure they were exactly right. They add a nice burst of color to the piece, and they have personal significance for the client too.
Split Shank and Diamond Accents
When the client originally came to us, he asked for a design as delicate as possible due to the fact that his girlfriend had very small hands and he didn’t want the ring to look bulky. With that in mind, we designed the ring with a straight shank, but after discussing the piece with his girlfriend, the client asked that we include a bit of a swirling design up at the top where the band connects to the main setting.
His girlfriend had asked him to put a bit of his creativity into the piece, and this was what he came up with. We integrated it into the ring, and it helps to make the piece truly one-of-a-kind while adding extra personal significance for the couple. The band is also bright cut set with diamonds down to the mid-point, and the remainder of the shank is covered with custom hand engraving with the exception of a small sizing bar at the bottom.

I worked with Joseph Jewelry for about a month designing, re-designing and having them make my fiancé's engagement ring. They did an incredible job, and their price was very reasonable. They crafted a completely custom platinum, diamond and emerald ring for around $400 less than a local store wanted for a similar stock ring (without the accent emeralds or custom engraving that Joseph Jewelry added). Even though I had them re-design the ring twice before production, they did not complain at all and did not charge any extra for the time and work they had to do. I also liked that I did not have to haggle to get a reasonable price. Simply put, this is a company that takes pride in their work, uses reasonable upfront pricing, and above all, wants their customers to be satisfied with the resulting product. Also, it is the only custom jewelry manufacturer I've found that gives a lifetime limited warranty on manufacturing for their custom work. Even if you're not local, give Joseph Jewelry a try; I live far away and have never visited Joseph's shop, but they made me feel connected to the process by uploading photos every step of the way.
