We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
After several years of a relationship as well as lots of research, reading, designing and several rounds of prototypes it is time for a big decision to be made. Here is the engagement ring I presented to my intended recently as well as a brief description of it and the design process.
The design is based on a Tiffany Etoile Solitaire Ring and features a 0.31C internally flawless round brilliant Tolkowsky cut Fancy Intense Blue (Boron Doped) Cultured Diamond set in a flared semi-bezel crown of 950 Platinum-Iridium on a D-shaped "Court" Band of 950 Palladium-Ruthenium.
It seems most goldsmiths & jewellers I talked to prefer not to work with Palladium, multiple-metals, custom designs, stones they have not purchased themselves, cultured diamonds or non-white diamonds. This design features all of these so getting a goldsmith who would work with me on this project was tough and it was barely finished in time. Getting the diamond was also a challenge, as it was held up in customs for several weeks leaving very little time for the goldsmith to actually make the ring. In spite of this the end product had excellent workmanship and looked fantastic!
As a side note, the pictures don't do the stone justice, it is really sparkly and appears a deep blue in bright light.
Changes from previous version:
Don't forget to insert needless paperwork, delays, indecision, uncertainty & frustration at almost every step of the way
