This stunning ladies fashion ring features a square tanzanite prong set in white gold, with channel set diamond accents on the split, two-tone shank below. It was created as a custom order for a client, and it’s build specifically to highlight the beautiful color and cut of the large stone at the top. Design Your Own Ring
Many people begin the custom design process with thoughts about the structure and style of the band. But another way to approach this type of project can be to find the perfect gemstone and build your design around that. No matter which way you choose to go, however, our team is always available to assist you, both online and in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom.
The lovely blue tanzanite at the center of this ring is 1.08 carats, and it’s prong set in 14k white gold. It’s also rotated so that its corners occupy the compass positions, and this twist flows perfectly with the organic movement of the split shank below. The color of tanzanites can vary, ranging from bluish-purple to blue-violet, depending on the way it’s cut, and the skill of the gemstone cutter plays a significant role in bringing out the natural beauty of the stone.
The majority of this band is made from 18k yellow gold, and it’s mostly straight all the way around. There is a slight movement to the left as it nears the center setting, however, as this yellow gold piece comes back in to cross beneath the center tanzanite and meet it’s opposing end at that point.
Right at the spot where the yellow gold begins to bend, a 14k white gold strand breaks off in the opposite direction, and this mirrors the movement of the main band, looping out before coming back to meet the white gold strand from the other side directly below the main setting. The white gold also extends up, however, transitioning smoothly into the prongs holding the tanzanite in place.
Another small branch splits off the white gold strand even closer to the center setting, which is what creates the channel setting to hold the small round diamonds that accent the main stone. There are two diamonds on each side, and they introduce a beautiful sparkle and stunning contrast to help enhance the natural beauty of the tanzanite to an even greater degree.
