Diamond and Alexandrite Engagement Ring
The customer came to us with an idea of an engagement ring design using diamond and alexandrite.
He wanted a two stone engagement ring that would have the infinity symbol incorporated in the setting edge and once our team at Form Bespoke Jewellers knew the basic design, it was time to source the all important stones.
It was great to see a customer choosing Alexandrite for one of his centre stones as its colour play is really interesting. Alexandrite results from small scale replacement of aluminium by chromium oxide. This is what is responsible for it's characteristic green to red colour change. We were able to source a selection of fine quality Alexandrites with good colour plays for the customer to choose from, and once we’d found the right stone, we were able to match it to a complimenting diamond.
The round brilliant cut diamond we used was 0.71cts and a H colour and Si quality, that had been certified by GIA and all the comments on the certificate were Excellent.
The prototype of the engagement ring was made up and approved by the customer before being sent to the caster to be cast in platinum.
The gaps (gallery) in the side of the ring shows off both the diamond and alexandrite really well, so you’re able to see as much of them as possible and let as much light in as you can. With the shoulders of the ring fluting out as it meets the head, we thought it would be nice to add a couple of diamonds in each one; they taper in size and add a lovely touch of sparkle.
This in an engagement ring that we’re really proud of!
Here's what our client had to say after the proposal- Hi Tim, Just emailing you to let you know all went smoothly with the engagement and we are both very happy. The engagement ring looks stunning and she absolutely loves it. We have had loads of great comments asking where I got it from too. Just to say thanks for everything and all your help making it such an amazing final product. Glad we went for the smaller size as you suggested as it fits perfectly. Will bring it back in for polishing when she is around and it's had some use. Thanks for everything. I also have some good pictures of it in different colours if you didn't manage some of the changing light in the Alexandrite.
