Custom Aquamarine and Diamond Ring

Aquamarine and Diamond hand-crafted platinum ring.

Alluring Aquamarine!

A client who had admired many of our designs wished to have an engagement ring custom created with an Aquamarine as the centerpiece.  We first helped him select a beautiful square emerald-cut Aquamarine that has a crisp, cool blue with just a hint of greenish overtones.

Next we matched up four dazzling Princess-cut Diamonds to complement the shape and sparkle of the Aquamarine.  After completing the perfect layout of gemstones,  we custom built a platinum ring that captured the bold geometry of the Aquamarine and Diamonds.

The Aquamarine is set in a four-prong double-rung head.  The prongs are crafted from flat-edge wire that we polished to a narrow spear-point tip,   giving the prongs a dramatic effect.  The prongs also taper in width from top to bottom and are fashioned with a slight outward flare.

The Princess-cut Diamonds are channel set on each side of the Aquamarine within the shoulders of a flat edge band.  Note the precise arrangement of the diamonds and the crisp even edges of the channel settings,  signs of a master craftsman and gemstone setter.

The flat edge band is a nice, weighty design that is just slightly wider than the Princess-cut Diamonds.  We then created a very subtle taper to the width of the band,   so that the ring is slightly narrower at the base and thus a more comfortable fit.

This photo also shows the thicker gauge of the band, even at the base, ensuring several generations of wear and enjoyment.

The Aquamarine is set at a medium-low height ... just slightly higher than the band itself and the side diamonds.  This arrangement creates a cascading effect of clear aqua-blue and brilliant white diamonds,   reminiscent of white-capped waves on the Carribean Sea.

Finally, we polished the band with a bright finish to accentuate the boldness of this design.  The combination of square shapes, crisp channel settings, spear-point prongs and a high polish shine embody the sophisticated elegance of Art Deco style.

"Looking under the hood"  you can see that the beautiful design and finish are carried to the underside of the ring.  Note the cut-out beneath the gemstones and the symmetrical, smooth edges.  Our philosophy is that a fine jewel should be as nicely crafted on the underside as it is on the top.  This photo also shows the flared angle of the prongs  -  another dramatic touch.
