(item # 102781)
This elegant engagement ring features an Asscher cut diamond in the center of a three-stone setting, with old European cut diamonds on the sides. It was created for a couple from Everett, WA, who initially came into our Bellevue, WA showroom to learn more about our custom design process and how we could help them create the perfect piece.
After meeting with them, we developed a couple of CAD models that we shared with them through the online workroom we created for the project. They shared their thoughts, and we revised our designs until they were satisfied that we had every detail just right.
The Asscher cut diamond in the center of this ring is 1.02 carats, and the four platinum prongs holding it in place perfectly cradle its cropped corners. Asscher cut diamonds were quite popular in the early 20th century, and have recently begun to be used widely again. Their overall shape makes them seem similar to an emerald cut, but the slightly different arrangement of the facets often gives them more brilliance. Diamond Engagement Rings
To complete the three-stone setting in this ring, two old European cut diamonds are prong set next to the larger center stone. One of these was a family diamond, and we found a new one to match it to complete the set. Using this style of diamond in conjunction with the Asscher cut in the center helps give the ring a decidedly classic look and feel.
Custom Design Process
When this couple came to us, they were envisioning a ring with a three-stone center, but they also thought they wanted accent diamonds on the shank shoulders. After we posted initial designs with three and six channel set diamonds on each side, they asked to see what the ring would look like without any of these accent stones. At this point, they decided that was the way they wanted to go due to the simple classical elegance of the design.
This is a wonderful example of the way we work to ensure all of our custom design clients receive a piece that exactly matches their vision. We’ll learn as much as we can about your style and feature preferences before beginning a design, and we’ll make as many revisions as you require until you’re sure every element is perfect. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
