This stunning men’s wedding ring features alternating sections of channel set princess cut black and white diamonds running all the way around the platinum band. The design originated as a custom piece for a client from Key West, FL, who shared some inspiration pieces with us to start the custom design process.
Since he couldn’t come into our Bellevue, WA showroom personally, we collaborated through the online workroom, taking full advantage of all of the high-tech tools at our disposal to ensure the ring we created for him was exactly what he wanted down to the very last detail.
One of the most striking features of this piece, and one that we didn’t hit upon until the ring was nearly complete, is the alternating sections of black and white channel set diamonds. Initially, the client wanted all black diamonds broken into these groups of three, but after consulting with his partner, he decided to go with the alternating sections.
This combination changes the whole complexion of the piece and gives it quite a bit more character. It also allows for the introduction of the traditional white diamonds, which have a special place in wedding rings thanks to their association with romantic love and purity.
Style and Finish Options
The band includes small triangular cuts that intersect the solid metal sections at regular intervals and add a new level of complexity to the design. It gives the ring a much more modern feel, and that’s only accentuated by the high polish finish.
However, if you like this idea but want to take it in a more classical direction, one option could be to eliminate the cuts and switch to a bright cut setting for the diamonds. And taking things a step further, you could even go with yellow gold to add some warmth and vintage flair.
Changing up the finish is another subtle but substantial way to alter the look and feel of a piece. The client originally chose a brushed finish for this ring, but after giving it some thought and discussing it with his partner, they decided they liked the polished look better.
And these are all examples of the types of decisions you can make when designing your own fine custom jewelry. Our experts will guide you through the process, but our only goal is the ensure that you’re completely satisfied with the piece we produce for you, and that means we give you all the information and let you decide which options and features best represent your individual style.
