The European Gemological Laboratory (EGL) recently authenticated the worlds largest pearl weighing in at 5 pounds! The 6" pearl was found in the giant clam Tridacna Gigas off the waters of the Philippines and is said to be the most valuable ever. We’re wondering just how to make this into a ring. . . . . . . . . .
This pave diamond engagement ring is new to our line. It can be made to your specifications with either a natural diamond, a clarity enhanced diamond, a moissanite, a Gemesis cultured diamond or just about anything you can dream of in the center! The center stone is bezel set while the pave diamonds are set 3/4 the way down the shank. It is also available in any of our eight metals including platinum, palladium, 14kt and 18kt gold. We’ll post the ring with all of the options on our website soon. If you decide you just cannot wait until we do, give us a call and we’ll help you out with it over the phone!
This is how a ring looks in the middle of the process. The ring on the right is the one that we're copying for our client and the ring on the left is about half way finished. We're now having stones specially cut to fit each of the elongated spaces. Princess cut diamonds will top off each stone. We added a solid back to give the ring some heft! We'll post a photo of the finished piece when we get it back. We're nearly there Bruce!!
We just realized we haven’t been posting many of the custom diamond engagement rings that we’ve been finishing! So, here’s a classic platinum beauty with pave set diamonds and a square radiant cut diamond in the center. We are able to make this ring with virtually any size and shape stone in the center.
Just wanted to let you know I received my new ring safe and
sound and it looks even better in person. I wanted to thank you guys
for the great service and specially for the little touches, like the
grow-a-ring, I thought it was so funny, also for the hand written note
on my receipt, you guys were great and I will be shopping there again
and recommending your site.
