This dazzling women’s fashion ring features a cushion cut Spessartite garnet tension set in the center of an asymmetrical, two-tone split shank, accented with a line of bright cut set diamonds. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA who already had the center stone and asked us to design the perfect setting for it.
We used the information she shared with us about the style and features she wanted to include in her ring to create highly-detailed CAD representations of the piece as we proposed to build it. She quickly approved these, and so we turned the project over to our expert artisans to begin production. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
Spessartite Garnet Center
The centerpiece of this ring is a 3.00 carat cushion cut Spessartite garnet, and its rich orange color is complemented nicely by the 18k yellow gold that makes up most of its setting. Spessartite garnets were originally discovered in a mountainous forest in Germany in the late 1800s, and their name comes from the Bavarian word for forest. They weren’t used much in fine jewelry until the 1990s, although their average hardness of about 7 on the Mohs scale makes them an appropriate choice for many types of pieces. One of a Kind Engagement Rings
The band of this ring is made primarily from 18k yellow gold, and it’s narrowest at the bottom, widening on both sides on the way up. On one side, however, this widening quickly becomes a split, with one yellow gold strand branching off to the left and a platinum strand branching off to the right. These strands continue up on their diverging trajectories until finally wrapping around the top and bottom of the center stone.
On the other side, the band continues to widen as a solid piece, eventually meeting the side of the garnet at the top. This is the widest point on that side of the band, and it’s the same as the width of the stone itself at that point. All together, the two strands from one side and the wider strand from the other combine to form the tension setting holding the garnet in place.
Diamond Accents and Hand Engraving
The platinum strand also holds round bright cut set diamond accents, which start right at the spot of the split and continue all the way up through the center setting. These add a lovely sparkle and a hint of glamorous flair to the ring.
The fronts of the split strands are hand engraved with a custom pattern the client had developed by an outside artist. This allowed her to include a special personal touch and ensure the complete uniqueness of her piece. Hand Engraving
