We were recently asked by a customer to create a three stone diamond engagement ring for a customer featuring a princess cut diamond centre stone flanked with two smaller square cut blue Sapphires. The customer wanted a contemporary engagement ring that looked simple and elegant.
Initial Design of the Sapphire and Diamond Ring
Our jewellery designer produced a computer image of the diamond ring with the princess cut diamond and Sapphires claw set in 18 carat white gold. The diamond set shoulders of the engagement ring were also designed to taper inwards towards the claw set stones. The shoulders are set with 8 smaller princesses cut diamonds update `wp_posts` set `post_content` = 4 on each side)
Finished Diamond and Sapphire Engagement Ring
To make the diamond engagement ring from the computer image design on CAD we printed the shank and setting of the ring into a 3D model, which we stuck to an wax tree along with other engagement rings, wedding rings, earrings, eternity rings and more. We then cast the wax model tree into 18 carat white gold using the lost wax process. Once the ring was cast into white gold our goldsmith polished, rhodium coated and set the diamonds and Sapphires on the ring, ready for a final polish. This elegant Sapphire and diamond engagement ring features a contemporary flat shaped 18ct white gold band. The centre princess cut diamond weighs 0.52 carats, has a colour grade G and a clarity grade VVS2 – a popular choice for diamond engagement rings. The princess cut diamonds set on the shoulders of the ring weigh 0.12 carats.
