This stunning women’s fashion ring features a large opal in a specialty prong setting atop a contemporary white gold shank, accented with channel set round diamonds. It was created for a client from Bellevue, WA, who had an existing ring containing the opal that she wanted us to design a new setting for. We initially discussed her vision with her in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom, and we then shared concept sketches and CAD models of the piece as we proposed to make it with her online. She quickly approved these so we could move into production and meet her desired completion date. Design Your Own Ring
In the center of this ring, a 2.20 carat opal is cradled in four white gold prongs. These prongs meet the stone at the compass positions, which are also roughly the spots where the rounded corners of the stone lie. The stone is not symmetrical, however, causing the setting to be slightly asymmetrical also, and this works well with the twisted way the prongs emerge from the band to highlight the opal’s natural beauty.

Diamond Accents and Band Design
The band is thick and flat across the bottom, widening slightly as it moves up the side, and then maintaining a consistent width from the mid-point almost all the way to the top. Near the center setting, the band splits, with two equal strands moving in opposite directions to form the prongs at the top and bottom of the stone.
A line of round diamonds is channel set up each shank shoulder, with the 14 diamonds total combining to weigh 0.46 carats. These lines of diamonds are set slightly to the side of the center, so that they continue straight up onto one of the strands after the split. Overall, these features combine to produce a decidedly contemporary design with plenty of dynamic movement and stunning contrasts.
