This stunning engagement ring features an Ideal square diamond prong set above a criss-cross split platinum shank, with bright cut set diamond accents on the band. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who had specific ideas of the ring he envisioned for his fiancée. We built the ring for him and set the Ideal square diamond in the center to complete the piece.
Ideal Square Diamond
An Ideal square diamond is cut in such a way that it shines as brightly as possible thanks to the 68 symmetrically-aligned facets that reflect back out an astonishing amount of the light that comes in. They take much longer than a normal diamond to shape, and they also display a distinctive hearts and arrows pattern when viewed straight on from the top or bottom. Diamond Engagement Rings
The particular diamond in this ring is a 0.83 carat Ideal Square, and it’s prong set in platinum in such a way that two of its corners line up with the band. This positioning works well with the shape of the band, and it also helps to highlight the angular shape of the stone. The prongs themselves rise up out of various strands of the split shank to grasp the diamonds at its corners, framing it beautifully.
The two strands that make up the shank are joined together at the bottom, but they soon diverge as they move up the sides of the band. They cross back over each other as they near the center setting, and then separate again as each piece moves up to form one of the prongs holding the main diamond in place.
The criss-cross design of the shank introduces softer curves, as well as sharper angles where the two strands cross each other. This works well with the square shape of the center diamond and the angle that it’s set at to give the piece a sense of balance. There are also bright cut set diamonds running up one of the strands on each side, starting at the half-way point and continuing all the way up into the prong itself. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
