This elegant design was inspired by an antique princess cut diamond wedding ring. We modernized the design and incorporated colorful gemstones to create a truly special and striking engagement ring. We wanted the center stone to be more of a traditional size and so we selected 5.5mm, the size of a 1 carat princess cut diamond. And since we love the symbolism of a 3 stone ring, especially for engagement ring, we knew we must add a princess cut diamond on either side of the center gemstone. The princess cut diamonds are 2.8mm, about the half the length of the center stone. This gives a nicely balanced look. And we wanted to ensure that the rings would have an old world feel similar to that of the original antique ring and so we added the filigree detail to the sides of the ring, the milgrain edging and chose to set the diamonds in a bead setting.
Here we show the original computer aided design (CAD) images of the ring. Since we knew this would make a stunning gemstone engagement ring, we also designed a coordinating wedding band.
Notice how the engagement ring and wedding band are designed to nestle close
against each other for a unified look. A second band stacked on the other side
would also be an amazing look. We used the same size round diamonds in both
rings so that the diamonds line up with each when the rings are stacked.
