This year for mother’s day, I designed a 14K yellow gold, custom trillion birthstone ring.
This ring features two birthstones, peridot and citrine, cut in trillion shapes and set into a petite yellow gold ring setting.
The ring design was made to have the the trillion stones sitting up right next to each other, with one of the points running horizontally with the ring band.
What are Trillion Shaped Stones?
Trillion gemstones, simply put, are triangle shaped. The biggest differentiation between a trillion and a trilliant or a triangle is that the term trillion is specifically reserved for gemstones.
Oftentimes trillion shaped gemstones are used as accent stones to a main center stone. In this case, the custom trillion birthstone ring was designed to have the stones themselves be the focal point. They get the lead role this time!

What is the birthstone for the month of August?
The birthstone for the month of August is peridot. This stone is a beautiful yellowish green. It is found naturally in the earth and is also synthetically produced.
Peridot is only a 6.5 to 7 on the scale of mineral hardness, so it is considered “fair” for every day use. The stone should be shielded from heavy blows and worn with care. To learn more, visit the Gemological Institute of America.
What is the birthstone for the month of November?
The birthstone for the month of November is citrine. Citrine has many different shades of yellow, from light translucent yellow to darker shades.
Citrine is rated a 7 on the scale of mineral hardness and will hold up pretty well with every day wear. It is just a bit harder than peridot, but just that small increase can go a long way in a stones durability. To learn more, read about citrine on the GIA’s website.
Custom Trillion Birthstone Ring: Designed with CAD
The majority of the time when I do a custom ring, I will first design the ring in CAD. I love doing it this way because it gives my clients the opportunity to see what the ring will look like before it is cast in metal!
Once the clients have the renderings delivered to them, they can request any changes they feel necessary, and we can tweak the design as we go.
Once the design is looking just perfect, then we will proceed to the casting process! For more information, feel free to contact us!
The end result is a ring that looks nearly identical to the CAD renderings! The best part is, the real ring will always look better in person than in renderings, so if you are feeling excited about what you are seeing on a screen, just wait until you get the real piece of jewelry in your hands.
The weight of the gold, the reflection of the stones, the shine and shimmer. These are things that can only be handled and seen in person, and the end result is so satisfying!
