Contemporary Solitaire Diamond Ring
John knew his fiance wanted something unique for an engagement ring. She had been showing him pictures of various styles of "twig branch" engagement rings, but hadn't fallen in love with any. She liked the organic shape but didn't want the bark texture. She wanted a contemporary setting, but with a lower profile, smooth transitions, and a 1 karat center diamond. After creating a rough sketch for her approval, we hand carved the ring in wax. With her final approval we cast the ring in 14K rose gold and set the GIA certified stone.
This one of a kind ring has a non-traditional open bezel. The lower profile setting means there are no prongs to snag on; a specific concern they both had for their active lifestyles. There are lots of amazing engagement and wedding rings out there, but this client chosen to mark the start of a new chapter in life with a one of a kind ring.
What started with a nature inspired twig ring concept and then simplified the details to meet our customers visions. The result is a non-traditional engagement ring shape and setting.
The open sides of the bezel let in plenty of light to highlight the brilliance of the stone.
John was thrilled with the process and result. "You completely blew away my expectations. From the process to the final result I couldn't have been happier. I was always confident that Metal Pressions could make me an incredible engagement ring, but the way they interacted and executed truly impressed me" - John B.
