The ring was redesigned keeping in mind the original modern look. To the original 1 ct diamond we added 1,16 cts of baguettes, princess cuts and round diamonds, all VS and G-H color. We wanted to create a crescendo of diamonds going towards the top - the emerald cut diamond. We also upgraded the metal from 14K to 18K white gold.
On each side of the ring there are 2 round diamonds representing the couple and their journey together since the wedding. On the bottom of the ring there is a bicolor sapphire, representing a private joke between the couple, since the days they started dating.
My client wanted to avoid prongs, that had been repaired over the years and presented a risk of losing the center diamond. We opted for flush setting all of the diamonds and doing a half bezel for the center emerald cut diamond. The reason being that when you do a half bezel, while still being very secure and not catching on clothing, it still allows for a lot of light going into and through the diamond while letting it sparkle and show its fire.
