Old European Cut Diamond Ring

European Criss Cross !

We created this custom engagement ring to showcase a magnificent Old European cut diamond.  The beautiful diamond was cut during the late 1800s.  The gems round profile,  high crown and relatively large culet are characteristic of Old European cuts.  There is nothing like the charm of an older cut diamond. 

The 3-carat diamond is set in French double-prongs that form a sweeping criss-cross across each face of the ring.  The ring is hand crafted in platinum.

Along the shoulders of the ring we set three sparkling round brilliant diamonds.  The diamonds are graduated in size and bead set in beautifully milgrained channels.  Beneath the graduated line of diamonds we hand engraved a flowing pattern of cascading foliage.  We call this elegant style of engraving "Regal Elegance."

We wanted to add a subtle touch of color to this elegant ring.  So, along the sweeping prongs we set Fancy Pink diamonds.  The pastel shade of the pink diamonds perfectly complements the sparkling white diamonds and coolness of the platinum ring.

Beneath the pink diamonds we engraved a pattern of soaring wings and milgrained the edges of the band and prongs.

The cascades of engraved foliage flows around to the base of the ring and meet in a four-petal flower.  Each engraver works in their own style and uses a unique signature mark to center the engraved design  -  in this case the small flower.

The inside of the ring is as nicely finished as the top.  The inner surfaces are smooth and evenly finished.  The upward sweeping prongs are beautifully crafted with thick, sturdy walls.  This custom ring was designed to last a lifetime.

One of the best parts of creating a special ring are the comments from the wearer.  Here is what our client had to say.

Kathy absolutely loves the ring and I want to thank you again for doing such a good job.

Not only did we get to work with an exceptional designer to create the ring, but Judi also used only the best engravers, diamond setters and other "specialists" to create an heirloom to last for generations to come.  I had an incredibly positive experience working with Judi at Bijoux Extraordinaire and will undoubtedly return for other pieces in the future.
