Earlier this week, we were attempting to think of the ultimate girlish, pink diamond engagement ring, and wondering if there was a way to create an “ALL PINK” diamond ring. OK so this is just for fun, and there are many practical reasons why Pink anodised Gold is not the most practical choice for long term wear. But here it is nevertheless – a very expensive pink engagement ring, which would be amazing with a natural Pink solitaire round brilliant cut diamond, in a very high clarity, exhibiting a subtle, yet noticeable hint of Pink. We know that round diamonds are perhaps less frequently cut for pink diamonds, since other shapes intensify the pink colouration (an optical result owing to natural lamellae in the structure of some diamonds.) So what would this break down into?
Firstly the diamond – natural pink and rare. Perhaps 1 carat if you wanted a sizeable stone.
Secondly the setting – Pink claws to be consistent across the colour of the ring. To make an all-pink ring, the entire piece must be the same colour.
Finally, the shank. – Anodised Pink Gold, in the same colouration as the claws themselves.
Perhaps this ring represents the worst possible choice (especially if you hate pink!) or the most amazing ring in the World for you. Perhaps one day we will even be asked to make it a reality. But for now, just a unique idea, that is purely for fun.
