This gorgeous engagement ring features an emerald cut diamond talon prong set in rose gold, with split prong set diamonds in the gallery and on the shoulders of the narrow shank. It was created for a client from Los Angeles, CA, who worked with our team in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom as well as online to finalize the details of the design. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
The centerpiece of this ring is a 1.31 carat emerald cut diamond that the client had previously purchased. It’s set in four talon prongs made of 18k rose gold, and these curl up around the clipped corners of the stone, helping to highlight its lovely contours. The diamond is rectangular, and it’s set lengthwise across the band, placing it inline with the finger when worn.
There are 46 accent diamonds in this ring, all of which are round and split prong set. These run down both shank shoulders, stopping at about the mid-point on each side. They also line the bar that encircles the center diamond about half-way down the center setting in the gallery, adding a lovely glamorous flair and a bit of surprise sparkle. Unique Engagement Rings
In developing this design, the client drew primarily from one inspiration piece, while borrowing the prong shape from another. This is one method to take when you’re beginning the custom design process yourself, and so if you like this style band but find a center setting on another piece that you love, we can put the two together for you.
You can also adapt this ring by using a different shape stone in the center. An oval or marquise diamond would still have the elongating effect but with different underlying aesthetics, while a round diamond might take the piece in a more classical direction. Using a different setting style for the accent stones is another option, or you could switch to a different color metal to change the contrast dynamics present.
