Sometimes the best projects are the most terrifying. Warning – this post is picture heavy!
A while back I had a new client come to me and she said, “I don’t know what I want, but really like the Accolade band, and a few other settings. Can you design my engagement ring?” To which I said yes.
Looking back on it, I think it’s kind of funny because being given full creative control is so so scary, but her engagement ring turned out wonderfully and I couldn’t be happier.
We had a lot of debate over stones, but once the actual setting idea came into fruition, it all seemed to fall into place.
It was made using three precision cut spinels – the center is a lavender spinel, and the two side stones are gray spinels.
Platinum ended up being the metal of choice due to it’s lack of maintenance. The random polish to smooth out scratches, and it looks as good as new again!
The angled shoulder view is often my favorite on any ring, but on this ring, it’s extra special – I love how the prongs and the curves just flow together!
Last rays of summer sun…
Once you see the profile, you can clearly see how it was inspired by the Accolade band!
E, I am absolutely delighted for you and D, and I hope that this ring follows you through many great adventures on your life together!
