Platinum, Gold and Diamond
Razzle Dazzle !
| Seven dazzling diamonds sparkle across the top of this
platinum and 18kt gold custom wedding ring. The diamonds
are ideal cut and set in a recessed channel with millegrained
edges. The surfaces of the band are polished to a bright,
The sides of the ring are accented with 18kt gold scroll motifs and small bezel-set diamonds. But the ring has two sides! On one side the central element is a four-pointed yellow gold star (see photo above).
On the other side of the band the central element is a round brilliant-cut diamond set in an 18kt gold bezel. To learn the special meaning of the star and the diamond, keep reading!
The gold scrolls and bezel-set diamonds are protected in recessed compartments that gracefully taper and follow the curvature of the band. The background of the compartments are finished with a stippled texture to provide a richer contrast with the polished gold elements.
Our client wanted a wedding band that was both exceptional in design and craftsmanship. Note the crisp, straight edges of the channel setting and the even pattern of the millegraining, the bead-like pattern along the walls of the channel.
The diamonds are set in the channel setting with a slight space between each stone. This prevents the diamonds from overlapping or inadvertently abrading each other. It is attention to little details like this that make a custom designed jewel exceptional!
As always, the inside of our rings are as beautifully finished as the outside. Note the smooth, polished surfaces and the thickness of the band's sides. Each of the diamonds is a joure with a small circular window cut out beneath its setting.
All fine jewels should be hallmarked with the quality of the precious metals and the maker's mark. Above you can see the Bijoux Extraordinaire hallmark ("BEL") and "18kt" and "PLAT" indicating the quality of the metals.
In the photo you can also see another surprise - a platinum ribbon-like motif at the end of the tapered channel setting. This small touch adds to the beauty and design of this heirloom jewel.
The Story Behind the Band
Our client had a family diamond that had been passed from one generation to the next. He and his fiance wanted to incorporate the family diamond in her wedding band as a symbol of the past. On the other side of the band they chose to place a four-pointed compass-like star to point the direction towards their future lives together. Each element of this ring carries special meaning and represents the past, present and future!
