Custom Sapphire and Diamond Ring
with Matching Band

Custom sapphire and diamond ring in platinum.

Sapphire Delight with Band!

This platinum ring showcases a beautiful oval sapphire accented with two sparkling trilliant cut diamonds.  The color of the sapphire is a deep intoxicating blue, while the matched pair of diamonds were meticulously selected to create just the right sparkle.

Traditional three-stone rings like this can be worn for any occasion and on either hand.   They also make wonderful engagement rings, which is just what our client was looking for.   Our client, a very talented cabinet maker, also wanted to create a very special wedding band to complement the ring.

This view of the engagement ring shows how the diamonds have been set so that they elegantly complement the oval sapphire.   No unsightly gaps here!

Also note how the diamonds have been set slightly below the sapphire and with their outer points angled downwards.   This allows the gemstones to form a graceful line that follows the natural curve of your finger.   Sometimes three-stone rings are made with all the gemstones set at the same level and no curvature.   This gives the rings a boxy, "flat top" appearance.....not something we want in a Bijoux ring.

Finally, note how the outer prong holding the trilliant diamonds is a simple bead that flows gracefully into the slightly tapered shoulder of the ring.   This creates an elegant transition between the sparkling gemstones and the cool platinum.



From the side you can once again see the snug placement and slightly downward slope of the gemstones.

Note the sturdiness and uniformity of the prongs.   This type of setting is known as a double rung basket.   It lends an open, delicate appearance to the ring, while still securely holding and protecting the gemstones.

You can also see the thickness of the ring's band and its slightly tapered shape.   This assures that the ring will wear comfortably for many years.

The Cabinet Maker's Delight

We mentioned earlier that our client, the talented cabinet maker, wished to create a special wedding band to complement the three-stone engagement ring.   Here is the design we helped him create.

The wedding ring is a double band that was custom-made to fit around and cradle the engagement ring.   Along the shoulder of each band a trillium-cut sapphire has been set to contrast with the sparkling side diamonds of the three stone ring.  When the wedding and engagement rings are worn together they create a striking pattern of blue and white triangles.
