This elegant engagement ring features a round blue zircon prong set at the top of an ornate unplated white gold shank and accented with hand engraving, milgrain, and custom filigree. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who visited our Bellevue, WA showroom personally to view some inspiration pieces and to learn more about our custom design process.
After that initial meeting, we posted CAD renderings of the design we came up with for him online, and he was very happy with the way they turned out. He did come in again to view a wax model just to be sure everything was perfect, as well as to pick out the particular center stone he wanted to use. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
Center Blue Zircon
The lone gemstone in this ring is a 1.42 carat round blue zircon, and it sits comfortably in a four prong setting that arises naturally from the split strands of the shank below. These cross over each other directly below the center setting, adding a graceful touch that flows perfectly with the intricate patterns on the rest of the band.
Band Design and Custom Filigree
The entire band is tapered, with the center setting being the widest point and the very bottom of the ring the narrowest. A split occurs about half-way up each side, and the two strands that form continue up to integrate into the main setting.
The space between the two split strands is filled with an organic custom filigree made up of curling vine and leaf shapes. These are also present on a smaller scale on the fronts of the ring below the shank shoulders in a space that opens up due to a secondary split closer to the top. All of this is tied together by the elegant filigree scrolls that sit directly below the center setting, and each of these filigree pieces was hand-made by our expert artisans.
Hand Engraving and Milgrain
To complement the filigree, a scroll pattern of custom hand engraving covers the top and fronts of the ring, starting just below where the filigree stops and continuing all the way down almost to the bottom. As a finishing touch, both the filigree and the hand engraving are lined with milgrain beading for a hint of vintage flair. Vintage Engagement Rings
