I recently had the wonderful opportunity to create a custom rose gold engagement ring.
The ring was cast in 14-karat rose gold and set with Canadian accent diamonds. The center stone is a 1.25 carat “Forever One” colorless moissanite.
Before the ring was cast into 14kt rose gold metal, it was first designed with CAD/CAM software.
Doing custom jewelry this way is great because it allows the client full control over many aspects of the design. When rings are designed with CAD software, changes can be made along the way, thus allowing every design aspect to be just right before the ring is cast in metal.
Canadian diamonds have become increasingly popular with consumers wanting an ethical alternative to diamonds being mined in war-torn countries. The United Nations has made great strides in cutting off the exporting of diamonds from these countries. That being said, there is always the small possibility that diamonds are still making their way past the checkpoints put into place.
Canadian diamonds can be traced back to the mine of their origin. This is important because there is a distinct chain of command put into place, which is often audited by third party. This ensure that the chain is not broken.
In addition, Canadian diamonds are often laser inscribed to show their authenticity as a true Canadian diamond.
The “twist” Shank
This custom engagement ring features an infinity-style twist shank.
The ring was also made with a wider twist to cover more surface area on the finger. The widening of the twist provides a more dramatic view and emphasis on the design itself.
The Square Halo
One of my favorite elements of this design is how the halo around the center stone takes on a square shape. The corners were also rounded to remove any sharp angles.
The round center stone with a square halo creates a lovely contrast.
