(item # 102796)
This elegant engagement ring features an Ideal Square diamond in the middle of a three-stone setting, with diamond and hand-engraved accents on the split platinum shank. The design was developed for a client from Tumwater, WA, who initially contacted us online to share what he knew about the types of rings his fiancée-to-be liked.
We took this information and created a few sketches for him so that he could decide which direction he wanted to go. He also found a ring on our website that was close to what he wanted in certain ways, and we used this as a guide when building his piece as well. Even though the ring was a surprise, he was able to come into our Bellevue, WA showroom with his family to look at different rings and individual diamonds to make sure that his fiancée-to-be would love what we were building.
At the top of this ring is a 0.76 carat Ideal Square diamond, and it’s held in place by four squared prongs that complement its shape nicely. One of the main decisions our client was faced with during the custom design process was whether to go with an Ideal Square Diamond or a princess cut, and then which clarity and color to choose. To help him make the most informed choice, we showed him examples of both cuts in several different color grades, and he decided he loved this Ideal Square the best.
Completing the center setting are two trapezoid diamonds that are tension set on either side of the larger stone. These add sparkle from every angle, and their unique placement makes for an incredible effect when the ring is viewed straight on from the top.
Split Shank and Accents
The shank of this ring splits just below the mid-point on the band, and the two pieces move apart on a graceful curve until they meet the center setting. They each eventually form one of the prongs holding the main stone, and the round diamonds that are pave set on both the top and fronts of them end right at this point as well.
A lovely scroll pattern is hand-engraved on the lower portion of the shank below the split, and this serves as the perfect complement to the elegant lines found elsewhere in the ring. Both the accent diamonds and the hand-engraved sections are lined with milgrain beading for a lovely finishing touch and to reinforce the vintage overtones already present.
