Platinum Geometry!

A platinum engagement ring featuring an emerald cut diamond accented two tapered baguette diamonds set along the shoulder of the ring.  The center diamond weighs 0.90 carat and has very high clarity and color grades (GIA F color and VS1 clarity).  The two tapered baguette diamonds weigh 0.32 carats in total and were selected to perfectly complement the the shape,  clarity and color of the center stone.
Cost:   This engagement ring was custom made for a special couple.  We can recreate this ring in platinum and diamonds (as shown here) or using the precious metals and gemstones of your choice.   The cost of the ring will depend upon the gemstones and metals you choose.   If we can answer any questions or be of any other help,  please give us a call  (603 624-8672)  or  send us an email.

Platinum is one of the most beautiful precious metals.  But,  because of platinum's strength and resiliency,  it is also one of the more difficult metals to work with.  To create a beautiful jewel in platinum a bench jeweler needs many years of experience,  a high degree in skill and a passion for excellence.  These are all criteria we insist upon when we select a platinum smith to create a ring for one of our clients.

In the picture to the left,  you can see the clean smooth edges of the ring.  Note,  the graceful way that the side of the ring tapers to meet the narrow end of the baguette diamond.  Also, note the sturdy elegance of the prongs that securely hold the center diamond.  All hallmarks of a master platinum smith!

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.  For this ring we maintained an even thickness throughout the circumference of the band.  This creates a ring that will last several generations and keep on going and going .... just like the Energizer Bunny!

All fine jewelry should be as nicely finished on the inside as it is on the outside.  Note the smooth polished surface,  the crisp edges and symmetrical cut-out beneath the center stone.  Consumer Tip:  When considering a piece of jewelry always turn it over and examine it from the underside.

Baguette diamonds were all the rage during the Art Deco era of the 1920s and 30s.
Here are a few elegant rings inspired by the jewels of this era ....
