Fancy Yellow Radiant-cut Diamond
in Engraved Platinum Ring

Radiant Synergy!

An eminent engineer and an imaginative mathematician wanted to create an elegant engagement ring.  They asked us to help them acquire a beautiful yellow diamond and create an engraved custom ring with sparkling side diamonds.  Working with an engineer and a mathematician we wanted make sure the whole (the finished ring) was greater than the sum of the parts.  The result is seen above!

The couple selected a Fancy Yellow radiant-cut diamond weighing just under four carats.  We securely set it in an 18kt yellow gold, double-prong head with engraved and milgrained sides.  To complement the brilliance of the center diamond we set two sparkling kite-shape diamonds as side stones.

The surfaces of the ring are richly hand engraved with flowing scrolls and flowers.  For an added surprise we bead set two Fancy Intense Yellow diamonds in small engraved flowers on the sides of the band.  The ring is hand crafted and hand engraved in platinum and 18kt gold.

Swirling scrolls flow gracefully along the circumference of the ring like waves gently rolling across an ocean.  The edges of the ring and settings have been milgrained to create a small bead-like border.  Hand engraving a ring like this requires an artist's eye for detail,  a steady hand and several days on the jeweler's bench.

Viewing the inside,  you can see the symmetry of the design and the care with which the ring was hand crafted.  The underside of the ring is smoothly finished with crisp symmetrical edges and a beautiful polish.  Note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference.  All signs of a master craftsman who took great care and pride in his work.

Finding the Right Diamond

The first step in creating this ring was helping the couple find the right diamond.  We acted as their diamond broker and contacted diamond cutters from around the world.  From the many diamonds we reviewed we selected the "best of the best".... the four diamonds shown below.

From this dazzling line-up of radiant-cut yellow diamonds,  our clients chose the second diamond from the right.  A beautifully cut stone that glows with a vibrant yellow color.  It was perfect for the design of their ring.

When considering a colored diamond or fine gemstone,  it is important to examine a range of gemstones and to line them up and compare the gems first hand.  This is the only way to evaluate the subtle variations in color, cut and brilliance that will help determine which of the gems is truly  "the best of the best."
