Custom Tanzanite Engagement Ring
in Platinum and Gold

Oval tanzanite set with 6 brilliant diamonds in a custom platinum and gold ring.

Tanzanite Fleur

Our client,  a Manhattan executive,  wanted a dazzling engagement ring for his future fiance.  We worked with him to create an original design,  helped him acquire a striking Violet-Blue Tanzanite,  and had our master platinumsmith hand-craft this striking ring.  Needless to say his fiance was ecstatic with the results.

The ring features a stunning  4.5 carat Violet-Blue Tanzanite cradled in a platinum half bezel.  Six brilliant-cut diamonds are set in gold channels along the shoulders of the ring.  The ring is hand crafted in platinum and 18kt yellow gold.

The channel settings are further accented with milgrained edges.  At the end of the tapered channels we placed a small ribbon of platinum to complete the line of the diamonds with another subtle detail.

This side view shows the many intricate details that make up this jewel.  The walls of the bezel setting are finished with a stippled texture.  This highlights the yellow gold fleur-du-lis that accents the bezel and sits atop a small cut-out window on the face of the bezel wall.

On each side of the fleur-du-lis,  golden scrolls are recessed in the platinum sides of the ring.  The larger end of each scroll is set with a round brilliant diamond.  The other end of each scroll tapers towards the narrow ends of the recessed compartments.  Beneath the scrolls the platinum is stipple finished to once again highlight the polished gold.

As always we have finished the underside of this ring as beautifully as the top.  Note the smooth,  symmetrical under-bezel beneath the Tanzanite,  the crisp windows beneath each diamond (called á jouré) and the polish and evenness of the surfaces and edges.
