Platinum Engagement Ring With Princess Cut Diamond

A customer asked me to make a platinum engagement ring using a high quality princess cut diamond weighing between .75 and one carat. I located a really nice .81 carat diamond. Since a princess cut diamond doesn't have standard dimensions, I had to have the particular diamond in hand before setting to work making a wax model.

In a somewhat different manner than many of the other rings I make, this approach to setting the diamond causes the ring to look in many ways like a tension set ring. A minimally visible portion of metal passes directly beneath the stone and ties the two sides of the ring together. The princess cut diamond is in reality channel set, a much safer method of securing a stone than tension set. This type of ring has the added advantage of being able to be re-sized where a tension set ring cannot. ***Please note that a similar ring could be made of gold.

As much as possible, I make this type of ring in the comfort fit style which gives the inner edges slightly rounded profiles. In that there are no sharp edges in contact with the finger, you can be sure that the ring will be comfortable to wear.
