Contemporary Platinum Engagement Ring by Keith Farley

This platinum engagement ring holds a 1.25 carat diamond, although it could easily carry a larger or considerably smaller stone. Offhand, I most generally recommend using a diamond weighing no less than around .60 carat. ***Please note that a ring of similar character could also be made of gold.

This is a platinum engagement ring whose sides are connected by an inner platinum ring. This allows for the diamond to be channel set, a method by which the metal is hammered over the edges of the stone to hold it in place. While the inner ring is visible, its white character essentially blends with the color of the diamond. The white of the platinum in this engagement ring emphasizes the seemingly floating presence of the diamond. I've made an assortment of wedding rings to accompany and complement this ring as well as platinum wedding bands for the groom.

While I don't make tension set rings, the channel set approach I use when setting a stone often shares many similarities. At the same time, it doesn't have the assorted problems associated with tension setting.
