Shaped eternity rings – visualising the design

Owing to your engagement ring design, a shaped eternity ring, or even a shaped wedding ring can be difficult to visualise.

Part of our work involves advising clients on how to include specific details within a ring design. The design of your engagement ring will usually influence designs that are possible. But getting a good idea of these options can be difficult.

Shaped eternity rings, or even wedding rings can be difficult to create with a channel of princess cut diamonds. For this reason, we decided to feature a specific design which demonstrates both of these features.

The Brief

1. To include a channel fully set with princess cut diamonds.

2. To fit perfectly to a twist engagement ring with a contoured edge.

The solution

The simplest solution for combining the above details requires a band with a generous width. This allows a channel to one edge of the ring. On the opposite edge, the ring contours to meet the shaped of the engagement ring. This solution will work well for both full set diamond shaped eternity rings (or wedding rings) or part half set designs.

Under the lens – more about this commission

The ring design shown in this blog post, is the 1 carat solitaire Venice (R1D046.) The twist design means that a flush fitting band requires a shaped edge.

The shaped eternity ring begins as a wax model, created with the respective contoured edge. Once cast, the machined channel accommodates a matched set of princess cut diamonds to complete the design.
