This gorgeous engagement ring features a cushion shaped solitaire diamond in a tension setting atop a two-tone band. It was created for a client from Brooklyn, NY, and it’s a unique twist on the traditional solitaire design. The client came to us with a clear idea of what he wanted, and we made the requested modifications to his inspiration piece to produce a stunning finished product he was very happy with.

At the center of this ring is a 1.20 carat cushion shaped diamond held in a tension setting. Because this diamond is the only gemstone in the ring, the piece is considered a solitaire, which is a traditional design for an engagement ring. The choice of a cushion shape for the diamond is not as common, however, nor is the makeup of the main setting holding the diamond. Solitaire Engagement Rings
The two main pieces of the tension setting meet the diamond in the middle of the sides opposite the band. This creates a fluid movement in the shank shoulders as they adjust to move around the stone and assume the proper positions. That graceful curving moment complements the shape of the diamond nicely, and it gives a vaguely organic feel to the design. One of a Kind Engagement Rings
The band is made from 14k rose gold and platinum, with each metal continuing all the way around the ring on one side. This also means that one side of the center setting is made from the rose gold while the other is made from platinum, and that contrast helps to enhance the unique feel of the design.
The difference between the two metals is further highlighted by the use of contrasting finishes, as the rose gold portion is brushed while the platinum is polished. The inspiration piece the client shared with us used yellow gold rather than rose, and that was one of the main changes he made when customizing his piece.
