We were recently set the task to re-model this stunning round brilliant cut diamond into a jazzy 4-claw twist diamond ring setting. We were instructed by the customer to create something unique with a touched of tradition and vintage. As you can see diamonds are everywhere on this ring - on the shoulder tops, sides and twisted around the round shape of the large centre stone. Each small round brilliant cut diamond on the ring setting has been individually pavé set, creating this intricate vintage look ring setting. Like many twist styles we designed the 4-claws to be positioned like a compass in North East South West angles.
To begin the process of creating this beautiful piece, we formed a computer image of the design, printed it into a 3D wax model and then cast the band and diamond settings in 18ct white gold using the lost wax casting process. Once the setting was cleaned, polished and rhodium coated, our goldsmith set each diamond. From this view you can see how the diamond set claws beautiful twist around the large centre stone and into the 18ct white gold band.
