(item # 103523)
This exquisite engagement ring features a pear shaped Paraiba tourmaline in the center, surrounded by a halo of split prong set diamonds, and accented by additional split prong set diamonds on the narrow rose gold shank below. It was created for a client from Los Angeles, CA, who reached out to us through the Ring Builder feature on our website to begin the custom design process.
He had a general idea about the kinds of features he wanted the ring to have, and he knew precisely what color center stone he wanted. Working from this information, we sourced a beautiful stone for him, and once he approved it, we built his design around it. Although he never visited our Bellevue, WA showroom personally, the online workroom we set up to manage his project provided the perfect platform to share CAD models and exchange design ideas, allowing us to produce a finished piece that perfectly matched his vision. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
This ring was built around a 1.86 carat pear shaped Paraiba tourmaline, which is held in a prong setting made from 14k rose gold. Two of the prongs are rounded, and they meet the stone on either side of its rounded end. Completing this center setting is a Chevron prong that wraps smoothly around the pointed end of the tourmaline, both highlighting its elegant lines and protecting it from damage.
The client knew from the beginning that he wanted a specific shade of blue-green for the center stone, and so we suggested this particular gem as the best match to the sample he provided. He liked it very much, and we shared photos of the exact gem we sourced for his ring so that he could approve it specifically before we moved everything into production. Halo Engagement Rings
Diamond Halo and Accents
A contoured halo of split prong set diamonds surround the center tourmaline, and these bring a dazzling sparkle along with some classical flair to the piece. The shape of the halo also helps to highlight the clean lines of the larger stone, while the stones themselves shine additional light back up onto the center, helping to increase its shine. Split prong set diamonds also run down the shoulders of the shank to the mid-point on each side, and these tie in nicely with those in the halo to connect the two parts of the design.
