The Week in Bling (10/24/14)

Trillion Tananite Diamond RingSplit Shank Under Halo RingEmerald Cut Halo-Pendant-14k

This week we made some very unique custom jewelry pieces, mostly rings, but we did manufacture a lovely  classic diamond pendant for stock as well. Above is a trillion cut tanzanite ring with prong set diamonds that we made for a customer who wanted an avant garde style of ring. Crafted in 14k white gold  by our own Chris Baker, with one blue violet vivid color, 2.92 carat trillion cut tanzanite. In addition, there are eight prong set round cut diamonds, F-G color, VS+ clarity, with a total weight of 0.23 carats. Made for a local customer, the engagement ring in the middle is classic style in 14k white gold and features a 0.71 carat ideal cut round diamond center and 60 accent diamonds for an added 0.36 carats. The interesting design element about this split shank style engagement ring is the halo of diamonds is under the center stone instead of being raised close to the girdle of the stone like most halo designs are. This one of a kind pendant on the right was created as a stock piece for our Elkhart showroom.  Stunning as it is alluring, this classic diamond pendant showcases a crystal clear 0.59 carat emerald cut center and brilliant pavé-set diamond halo strung on white gold baby wheat chain necklace.

On the left, this European shank solitaire was set with a 0.90 carat emerald cut diamond. For something unexpected we twisted the prongs that hold the stone. One of a kind and created in 14k white gold. Last and certainly not least is this beauty.  From our Swoop ring collection that takes inspiration from contemporary design lines with surfaces that flow for a gentle, yet stately elegance. This piece was set with a 2.70 carat princess cut diamond center and 18 round brilliant cut diamonds in the gallery. 14k white gold. Stop by next week to see what our artists have created!
