This stunning men’s wedding ring features a hand-engraved pattern alternating with marquise shaped blue sapphires framed with milgrain all the way around the platinum band. It was created for a client from Kent, WA, who visited our Bellevue, WA showroom personally to get the custom design process started.
He was interested in a ring that incorporated elements from several different inspiration pieces, and he shared those with us. We took that information and turned it into a series of sketches that we posted online for him to evaluate. He provided some feedback, and we adjusted our designs accordingly until we found the perfect combination of features to get the look he was after. Design Your Own Wedding Ring
The pattern seen on this band was drawn from an inspiration piece that the client provided. We modified it to fit in the space available, as well as to work with the type of engraving the client was interested in. Initially, our models had the pattern engraved into the metal, but the client decided he preferred to have the design itself raised and the background cut away. This is referred to as relief engraving, and it is considered to be the most elegant type of hand engraving. Hand Engraving
Blue Sapphires and Milgrain
The client wanted to incorporate marquise shaped blue sapphires into his piece, as they were also used in his wife’s engagement ring. Their presence here helped to create a link between the two pieces, and their rich blue also adds a beautiful counterpoint to the brilliant white of the metal. Men’s Custom Wedding Bands
The sapphires, which number six in all, are each bezel set straight up and down in between two of the engraved sections. The bezel settings are lined with milgrain beading for a hint of vintage flair, and that milgrain also runs in two parallel lines around the entire center section, framing it perfectly.
To highlight various aspects of the piece further, we utilized contrasting finishes on the raised and recessed sections of the ring. The background of the engraved area is sandblasted, which creates a gently-textured matte surface, while the rails and raised design are polished to a high shine.
