This exquisite engagement ring features a cushion cut red zircon set atop a white gold shank, with a double row of diamonds running across the top of the band. It was created for a client from Redmond, WA, who found a couple of designs he liked on our website but wanted us to adjust them to accommodate the beautiful red zircon center.
Red Zircon Center
The centerpiece of this ring is a 2.71 carat red zircon with a rich maroon color. It’s a lovely alternative to the more traditional diamond or sapphire as the main stone in an engagement ring, and the dramatic color contrast between the zircon and the brilliant white of the diamonds running below it really make for an eye-catching piece.
Diamond Inner Band
Two rows of pave set diamonds run from the mid-point on one side of the band to the same spot on the other side, passing directly below the center setting on their way. These create a kind of inner band of diamonds, which is framed by two strands of the split shank. Accent diamonds also line a small, curved section on each of the ring fronts that joins the two prongs on each side of the zircon together.
Shank Design and Customization Options
The band is narrowest at the very bottom, and it gradually widens as it moves up until it reaches the mid-way point. That’s where the rows of diamonds begin, and the strands of white gold on either side of them continue straight up for a while before splitting off again to form the prongs holding the main stone.
There are many ways to adjust this design to make it your own. One option is to use a different type or shape of gemstone in the center setting, as our client did when altering his inspiration piece. you could also replace some or all of the accent diamonds with another type of gem that holds special meaning for you. Or you could experiment with different metal options to see if you’d like the warmer tones of rose or yellow gold better. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
