Sometimes you want a lot of sparkle on your ring, but you would like the simple style of a thin band. As you can see in this popular halo setting, a ring doesn't need to take up a lot of space in order to give you a fascinating, eye-catching look.
The client who ordered this piece was a Washington man seeking a ring for the love of his life, inspired by two Joseph Jewelry engagement ring designs. The challenge here was to do a lot with a minimum of space, filling up a slender ring with glamour. To achieve this, we started with a simple platinum band, chosen for the strength and durability that would be so important to the ring. The band is topped with a platinum, four-prong setting that is encircled with a halo of diamonds that make the center stone appear larger. Similar settings run down either side of the shank, such that most of the exposed surface is covered in jewels.
Beneath the setting of the main gem is a petal-shaped filigree crafted from rose gold, each petal set with a pair of tiny diamonds. This gives the ring a subtle splash of color that sneaks up on the observer when viewed from the right angle.
For the main gemstone, we selected a high quality, oval brilliant cut diamond. The majestic, colorless quality of the stone is complemented well by the white of the platinum, and the facets alternatively catch the gentle color of the rose gold beneath it to create a sparkle that is fascinating to observe. The overall effect is classically simple, but full of surprises.
Our artisans are masters of the delicate and tricky practice of creating halo settings. Contact Joseph Jewelry to start planning a unique and bedazzling piece of custom design jewelry for yourself!
