Diamond Engagement Ring in Platinum

Platinum engagement ring with tapered baguette diamonds.

Platinum Double Taper!

A custom platinum engagement ring featuring a round brilliant diamond set between four tapered baguette diamonds.  The four baguette diamonds are set along the shoulders of the ring.  This design captures the simple elegance of the platinum diamond rings created during the middle decades of the last century.

Platinum is one of the most beautiful metals.  It is also one of the more difficult precious metals to work,  because of its strength and resilience.  To create a beautiful ring in platinum a bench jeweler needs many years of experience,  a high degree in talent and a passion for excellence.  These are criteria we insist upon when we select a platinum smith to create a ring for one of our clients.

Here,  you can see the smooth, polished surfaces of the ring,  as well as the crisp edges.  Note the graceful way that the two baguette diamonds have been set in the shoulder of the ring.  Also, note the sturdy elegance of the prongs which securely hold the center diamond.  All hallmarks of a master craftsman's attention to detail and sense of artistry!

An important characteristic of a well-made ring is the thickness (or "gauge") of the band.  If the band is too thin,  it can quickly wear away.   To assure that this ring will be enjoyed for many years,  we made sure the band was sufficiently thick.   At Bijoux Extraordinaire,  we believe that fine jewelry should last for several generations,  not just a few years.

All fine jewelry should be as nicely finished on the inside as it is on the outside.  Note the smooth polish of the surfaces,  the crisp, clean edges,  and symmetrical cut-outs beneath the diamonds.  When considering a piece of fine jewelry always turn it over and examine it from the underside.  A fine jewel will be beautiful from all directions.
