Coloured gemstones set with diamonds are becoming a popular choice for jewellery, rings and engagement rings. Setting a semi-precious gemstone with diamonds can make a diamond ring jazzier and more affordable.
Blue Topaz and Diamond Ring Re-mount
Before Christmas we were asked by a customer to re-mount a large rectangular shaped step cut blue topaz stone into a new diamond ring setting. The customer wanted a classic looking ring with diamonds set around the topaz stone, similar to the style of Kate Middleton’s famous Sapphire and diamond engagement ring. To create the style above the customer worked with our jewellery designer on the computer to make a rendered image of the ring, to see what it would look like before it was made. As you can see the centre blue topaz is set in 18ct white gold claws and surrounded by a border of small, claw set round brilliant cut diamonds. In total the ring is set with 22 round brilliant cut diamonds which our gold smith individually set around the rectangular stone. The shoulders of the rings band are split at the sides adding more thickness to the design.
