Three Diamond Engagement Ring
in Gold & Platinum

Three-stone diamond engagement ring crafted in 18kt gold and platinum with hidden hearts.


Three-stone diamond rings have long been a symbol of two lives joining together as one.  But for this engagement ring,  we added something extra.

The ring is handcrafted in 18kt gold and platinum with a 1.4 carat round brilliant diamond.  The center diamond is flanked by two matching trilliant diamonds.  Each of the diamonds is securely held in platinum a setting that protects the gem and assures many years of enjoyment and wear.

As an added touch,  we set a small gold heart beneath the sparkling diamonds.

The band of the ring has a broad, flat profile that narrows gracefully as it meets the platinum settings and outer points of the trilliant diamonds.  This creates an elegant transition from the warmth of the gold band to the frosty white diamonds and cool platinum settings.

The eight-prong setting holding the center diamond is called a  "French double-prong mounting".  The two trilliant diamonds are cradled in three  "v" shaped prongs that help protect the points of these triangular gems.  If you want,  the center diamond can also be set in a traditional four-prong setting or in a modern looking bezel.  This style of ring is hand-made,  so you can customize it to match your taste!

When you create a beautiful three-stone ring,  the layout and placement of the gemstones is critical.  The center stone should be set a little above the side stones with just a little overlap.  You do not want to see any gaps between the stones or create a "boxy" appearence.  The ring and gemstones should flow gracefully across the your finger and fit as comfortably as it looks.

In addition to a nice layout,  the beauty and quality of the diamonds is important.  Here we carefully matched the size,  shape and color of the center and side diamonds.  It is important that all of the diamonds have complementary colors and proportions.  The trilliant diamonds need to be properly cut for maximum brilliance,  so that they balance the sparkle and fire of the center diamond.  If a trilliant diamond is shallowly or weakly cut,  it will lack fire and the necessary uuummmph!

As always,  you should check the underside of a jewel as closely as the topside.  The beauty of a well crafted jewel should be apparent from every angle and in all directions.  Note the smooth, polished surfaces of our ring and the even transition between the gold band and the platinum settings.  It is the small details,  like the little golden hearts,  that showcase a master goldsmith's talent!
