Many of the ring commissions we are asked to create, are based on very simple designs. Sometimes the very best way to show off a diamond is to surround the stone with a very simple setting. One such style is the tension style setting. This can be created for an oval or round brilliant cut diamond, and similar styles exist for princess cut diamonds also. We have regular styles of this design available on the website.
The above commission was based on a brief to provide a tension style setting which was created using CAD software. The design has been Rapid prototyped, and cast in 950 Platinum and holds a 1.50cts diamond. The ring itself has been created with a Heavy weight D shaped profile band, with an approx. width of 4mm. This was created to compliment an existing wedding ring of the same ring profile. The style of the ring is reminiscent of R1H008 and allows a great deal of light to enter the side of the diamond. Care however has to be taken with such designs since the outer edges of the diamond, are exposed on both sides. This adds a minimal feel to the ring, but also leaves the diamond itself vulnerable to damage on both sides.
For further information on this or any other design, please feel free to contact us with as much information as possible for your required design.
