I want to talk you through the design and manufacture of this stunning, bespoke pear cut diamond engagement ring, I had the opportunity of creating last month.
The gentleman came to me with his initial ideas, and we ended up with the following criteria:
- Pear Cut Diamond (unique yet timeless)
- Platinum (it’s the most durable white metal)
- A Diamond Halo (to make it shine and sparkle)
- The Best (like any good man, only wants the best for his fiancé!)
After a sketch and a decision on how the ring was to look, we had great fun choosing the perfect diamond! We had a selection of three and the decision ultimately came down to the nicest cut and colour. Pear cut diamonds often vary in shape depending on how they are cut. Some are long and narrow, some are short and rounder. We went for the diamond that was cut in the middle of these, it was perfect!
I drew up the ring on my CAD software, so we could see how the ring would look in reality. The design was perfect first-time round, with the diamond halo really making the Pear Cut, centre stone stand out.
Setting the outside diamonds took much patience, but not nearly as much as the centre stone. As Pear Cuts have a sharp point, you must be careful to not put any pressure on when setting too ensure the diamonds safety! (Diamonds are not invincible!)
While the design and manufacture process was ongoing, my client was telling me about where he intended to propose… in the sun, on the beach, in Bali. Could it get any more perfect!?
Once I’d made the ring, I could not wait to show my client, nor could I wait for him to propose. They were flying to Bali that week.
I didn’t have to wait long, before I got the message to say, ‘SHE SAID YES!’ How exciting! I received lovely messages from both my client, and his fiancé to say how happy they were with the ring. She seems to love it, which for me, is what it’s all about. One very happy jewellery designer right here!
