(item # 102105)
Originally a custom design for a client, this gorgeous engagement ring was inspired by two other Joseph Jewelry designs, rings #100483 and #100628. The ring’s combination of a three stone setting in a platinum band gives it a distinctive yet subtle elegance that will perfectly express the depth of your love.
Aquamarine Center Stone
The design of this ring naturally draws attention to the center stone, which in this case is a marquise aquamarine gemstone. This exquisitely-cut center stone can be secured by either a 6-prong or bezel setting, each of which provide exceptional security while also framing the stone beautifully. The 6-prong setting features one prong at the top, another at the bottom, and two on each side, while the bezel setting encircles the entire edge of the stone. The fact that these two types of settings create very different looks gives you the freedom to choose the one that truly reflects your tastes and personal style.
The delicate color of the center stone is also a perfect complement to the diamonds found in the side settings. Aquamarine is a beautiful gemstone, and its clarity, transparency, and vitreous luster all combine to make it a great alternative to the traditional diamond at the center of your engagement ring.
Side Set Diamonds
This ring doesn't completely leave tradition behind, though, as diamonds are still incorporated into the design. These are in the form of two pear-shaped diamonds nestled next to the center stone. They are worked beautifully into the setting and are highlighted with a chevron end. This v-shaped setting helps to protect the diamond, while also offering a distinctive look and a delicate complement to the angular, marquise-cut aquamarine at the center.

The band of this ring is platinum, which is an excellent choice for its lasting beauty, as well as its strength and durability. When it comes to setting diamonds in particular, platinum is a good option because of its density and the way it retains its natural sheen, and the high-polish finish this ring comes with give it a decidedly contemporary feel. Platinum is also a white metal to begin with, which means that you won’t have to worry about re-plating it due to normal wear and tear in order for it to retain its original color.
Platinum is also a popular engagement ring choice because it is hypoallergenic, and because it’s extremely easy to care for. To keep your platinum ring looking as good as new, all you need to do is wash it with some warm water and a gentle soap from time to time.
Symbolism of the Materials
Of course, because an engagement ring is such a meaningful piece of jewelry, you want to be sure that all of the elements that go into it reflect your true feelings about your relationship. In this sense, aquamarine is an excellent fit as well. Over time, it has come to symbolize youth, health, and hope, and its delicate blue color beautifully represents these elements. The choice of platinum for the band is also an inspired one, as this metal’s durability represents the everlasting nature of the love that you share.
