This gorgeous engagement ring features a princess cut ruby prong set in the center of a round bright cut set diamond halo, with additional diamond accents on the split white gold shank below. It was created for a client from Edmonds, WA, who reached out to us through the Ring Builder tool on our website to share his ideas on the perfect ring for his fiancee-to-be. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
We worked back and forth with him through the online workroom we set up to manage his project, and he also visited our Bellevue, WA showroom in person to view some rubies for the center and to see a wax model before giving his final approval to move into production.
Ruby Center and Diamond Halo
The centerpiece of this ring is a 0.66 carat princess cut ruby, and it’s held in place by four chevron prongs that simultaneously protect and accentuate its corners. The stone is oriented with its points at the compass positions, which was exactly what the client requested. His inspiration piece had a round blue-green sapphire in the center, and replacing this with the princess cut sapphire was the main modification he made to the design. One of a Kind Engagement Rings
The ruby in this piece is set within and slightly above a perfectly round halo of round bright cut set diamonds. This produces space around the center stone, helping to highlight the contrast in shape as well as color. The halo also helps to intensify the ruby’s shine, as it sends more light back up onto the center from below. Vintage Engagement Rings Seattle
Diamond Accents and Band Design
The shank is straight and flat up to about the mid-point, and there it begins to widen, preparing for a split that comes just a bit higher. The two strands that form in the split angle outward gradually, eventually meeting the sides of the halo to facilitate a smooth transition. Round diamonds are also bright cut set down the shank, and these tie in nicely with those in the halo while also producing a glamorous flair all their own.
