This exquisite women’s wedding ring features a row of bright cut set round diamonds across the top, which is trimmed with milgrain beading and accented with custom hand engraving. It was created as part of a custom wedding set for a couple from Tumwater, WA, who asked us to make it match the engagement ring that they had purchased previously.
They came into our Bellevue, WA showroom to get the custom design process underway, and we communicated with them online through the workroom we set up to manage their project as well. When the time came to complete the engraving, we borrowed the engagement ring to ensure all details matched exactly, and now the set is absolutely stunning when worn together. Matching Wedding Sets
Half Eternity Design
The arrangement of the 31 diamonds in this ring is considered a half eternity pattern, as it runs across only the top section of the band. This is a popular option, as it eliminates the chances that the diamonds on the bottom of the ring will become damaged, and it allows for other custom details like the beautiful hand engraving seen here.
Of course, the half eternity design still evokes a sense of unending love to serve as a lovely symbol of the commitment you’re making to each other. In the case of this piece, the diamonds stop at the same point as they do on the matching engagement ring, helping to unify the set as well.
Hand Engraving and Milgrain
Delicate milgrain beading runs along the row of diamonds as well as the hand-engraved sections of the ring, framing both features beautifully. This placement also mirrors that of the milgrain on the companion engagement ring, which further links the two pieces. The pattern of the engraving itself is made up of a beautiful flowing scroll design, and it is identical to the engraving on the engagement ring.
Straight vs Contoured Wedding Bands
The engagement ring that makes up the other part of this set features a split shank that angles out as it reaches the main setting. In order for the wedding band to sit flush with it, then, the band would have needed to be contoured. The clients chose to go with a straight band, however, and this means there is a slight gap between the two rings at certain points when they’re worn together.
This doesn’t diminish the beauty of the set in the slightest, and it also makes it possible to wear the wedding band as a stand-alone piece for occasions when you wouldn’t want to risk damaging the larger, more prominent diamond in the engagement ring.
There are benefits to both contoured and straight wedding bands, and many times it simply comes down to a matter of personal style. If you’re undecided about the type you’d like when designing your wedding set, we can show you examples of each to help ensure you’re completely satisfied with the pieces we produce for you.
