This elegant men’s wedding ring features an emerald cut blue sapphire flush set at the top of a platinum band with trillion shaped diamond accents and decorative grooves on the shank. It was created for a client from Seattle, WA, who had a very clear idea of the ring he wanted.
After speaking to our team in person in our Bellevue showroom, he worked with us online to revise the initial outlines we created. Once we were close, he requested to view a wax model, which we grew for him as part of our custom design process. After making a few small tweaks to that, he approved the adjusted design to move into production.
The main stone in this ring is a 2.13 carat emerald cut blue sapphire. It is flush set in the flat top surface of the platinum band, and the shape of the top platform loosely mirrors the shape of the stone. It covers most of the top portion of the ring, leaving only a narrow band of metal to frame it before the transition to the band begins.
The use of a flush setting for this gem helps keep it protected from damage due to everyday wear, and it also helps deepen the rich blue color of the stone. This contrasts nicely with the brilliant white of the platinum as well, making the sapphire really stand out.
There is a trillion shaped diamond flush set on each shank shoulder just below the edge where the transition from the center setting to the band begins. These are oriented with a flat edge up, running parallel to the main setting. The lower part, then, points directly down along the band towards the bottom of the ring, tying in nicely with the other design elements to create a cohesive piece.
The shape of the band itself was something the client spent considerable time working with our team to perfect. He wanted to make sure it switched smoothly from the center setting to the shank in just the right way, and he was also concerned that it taper precisely the way he wanted moving down the sides.
There is some groove detailing on the band, and this is in the form of two lines that come down at a slant from the corners of the main setting. They come together right around the mid-point on the band, and then a single line continues all the way around to connect to the grooves on the other side. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
