This dazzling engagement ring features a radiant cut tanzanite double claw prong set in platinum, with round diamond accents on the band below. It was created for a client from Issaquah, WA, who brought us an existing ring and asked that we use the stones from it in a new setting. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
After removing the stones, we found that some of them were cubic zirconia, and so the client decided to have us source some diamonds for him rather than using the existing stones. We did still use the center tanzanite, however, and we built a beautiful design around it to highlight its wonderful color and exquisite proportions.
The centerpiece of this ring is a 2.67 carat radiant cut tanzanite, and it’s compass set so that two of the corners are inline with the band while the other two occupy the north and south positions relative to it. This positioning is quite striking, and it helps draw attention to the elegant lines of the stone.
The tanzanite is double claw prong set in platinum, with each set of prongs coming up to curl over one corner. The prongs were one of the details that the client and designer spent the most time refining, and we sent several different versions until we’d properly captured the classical elegance of his vision.

Ten round diamonds are bright cut set down each shank shoulder, and these bring a lovely contrast to the rich blue of the tanzanite at the top. They also help reinforce the classical themes of the piece, while the clean, polished lines of the band hint at some contemporary flair as well.
We supplied these diamonds, as the stones in his original ring that he thought were diamonds turned out not to be. We also adjusted the number of diamonds down a bit to stay within his budget while still capturing the look he was after.
