This stylish men’s wedding ring features six bezel set diamonds evenly spaced around the white gold band, with black antiquing in the recessed areas. The design was developed in consultation with a client from Seattle, WA, who initially reached out to us online, and then came into our Bellevue showroom to get the custom design process underway.
There were several elements of this piece that the client wanted to make sure were executed exactly right. The raised X shapes framing the antiqued sections were an important detail, and the way the diamonds were set was another. While the overall outline of the ring did not change much during the process of revisions, the client did request several tweaks that ensured the piece we produced was exactly what he wanted in every way.
Bezel Set Diamonds
There are six diamonds in this ring, and each is bezel set in white gold in the center of a diamond-shaped section of black antiquing which is framed by the pattern of Xs. This contrast really helps the diamonds stand out, and the bezel setting creates a ring of silver around the stones that works perfectly with he raised white gold portions that make up the other main feature of the ring.
The client initially wanted the black antiquing on the flat surface of the ring, with the X shapes recessed. Unfortunately, having the antiquing in an area that was not recessed would have caused it to wear off quite quickly. The only reasonable way to include the antiquing was to protect it from the rigors of daily wear, and so he decided to go with the arrangement seen here.
Matching Wedding Sets
The X shapes seen in this ring are mirrored in the engagement ring that we made for this couple simultaneously with this piece. The use of a shared feature like this makes for wonderful symbolism and a very special link. And even if you do not know exactly how you would like to connect the various pieces in your wedding set, our team will share examples and review your options with you until we find the perfect combination.
