Non-exploitative solitaire ring
Mason had two rings that belonged to his mother that he wanted to have redesigned into a new engagement ring for his fianceé. We love helping our clients repurpose old and family rings to keep the spirit of family in important milestone jewelry. We were glad to be able to do everything to keep the jewelry a part of these important life moments as family grows and changes in love.
The rings that Mason brought to us from his mother included a solid gold band and another platinum ring with many smaller princess-cut diamonds. While he loved all the stones, he had a vision for the engagement ring that included just one solitary stone. While initially Mason thought he was interested in a pearl as well as a pear-cut diamond, eventually he decided that he wanted just one bold diamond in a pear shape. We wanted to help Mason have the diamond really stand out and look exactly as he wanted.
Because the ring would now only feature one diamond, we thought that we should go all out with the stone and decided to have a stunning and eye-catching stone. Mason wanted to have a lab-grown pear-shaped diamond.
Materials: 14k yellow gold ring with 1.53 carat pear-shaped diamond in claw prong and V-prong setting
*We bought the diamond, but we were able to sell his old gold to get some credit for the final cost.
